Projected building plan* for schoolr
in the Kings Mountain area include
the following:
Waco school, completion of voca"8W*
UU UL iyiL'
HHsiuf and lunch room.
Ucthwure school, building of gymnacum.
two classrooms. and installation
of a heating plant.
Piirk Grace school, construction of

Orover school, constructk>u of gym

(Of the total of gl.50O.0iHl, ?165.000
will go to Kings Mountain city
schools for physical improvements
All.>cations to the county, Shelby
nnil K'ngs Mountain districts arc
based on per capita student enrollment.)
? ? - Need?
for the new construction, as
listed l<y til" eountv board, follow-:
1. Very little construction has been'
hue i" tlie cou' fy sin e 10:56 when
several news build'ngs and many addition*
were provided with the ail
of the Federal Works Administration.
Ibi'-ti: the ten years since, tin- only
-n-.strui tior. has l.e-.-n of a few voea
io-al huildings.

ment. Htntisti-inns estimate that in
1!>50. there will be four million more
pupils in the elementary schools of
the United States than at present,
rieveland County will hayc its share
of this number.
3. In recent years, the school lunch
rooms have become recognized as a
necessary part of the public school.
nome 01 our scnoois are now untune
to operate lunchrooms because of a
lack of space; others are using space
really needed for classrooms. Ppace
equivalent to at least two classrooms
is required for each lunchroom.
4. The addition of the 12th grade
retains pupil' one more year in
chool. Housing the pupils for this
grade calls for more building.
5. One of the most s'auifi ant de
elopments in modern education is in
the area of henlth and physhal odu
i ntion. There is definite need for
physical education buildings which
can he properly heated and used all
riav in all kinds of weather. The
"tin cans" now in use in the county
were built for basketball. and
cannot be properly heated for use in
cold weather, and are for the mosi
art in bail repair. These "tin cans"
were built at very little cost to the
taxpayers. All districts in the county
need physical education buildings.
