OUR SCEIOOL BUILDINGS.
Tho Pross realized the be-
ginning of September that
something should be done to ro
Hove the over crowded condi
tion of our school buildings and
with the reputution of Texas as
a state liberal in her educational
institution it clearly shows that
our citizens have not realized the
alarming conditions we arc al
lowing to continue since San
Angelo is noted for hor liberali-
ty rolinomont and hor deep in
to rest in oducational and ro
Anyone will readily admit thai
our representative people deep
ly regrot that sho has four
hundred children between tho
ages of eight and eighteen who
cun not attend school and obtain
an education simply because
there arc no benches or boxes or
oven places for ttiqm to stand
within our present school build
ings we all will admit that it is
awful and The Pross has yet to
interview a person who was not
anxious to have ward school
Our genial and ever obliging
County Commissioner AS Gantt
in an interview stated that ho
was heart and soul in tho ques
tion at issue that he had always
favored ward schools and it was
his opinion that two of the pres-
ent three wooden buildings
should be removed to wards
additions mado to those build
Ings and accommodation's should
bo furnished every child in San
Angelo who desired to attend
school and that those accoinmo
dations should bo ample enough
to guarantee as far as practible
immunity from diseaso.
Furthor he would favor and
advocate using tho presout rock
building ns a high school and as
a ward school for that ward and
would state tho reason the pres
ont wooden buildings w ore
eroded adjoining the rock build-
ing was on account of tho county
not owning any other land
availablo whore the school should

The amount collected from
both county and stato would be

It seoms tho stato does" more
for us as a county than we tiro
doing for ourselves in other
words 11 takes more intorest in
our welfare than wo do and it is
easy to soo that something
should bo done just how The
Press does not know but bo

tive mon of San Angelo will

little city where sho will shine
as an educationul center.

One pupil will breath about 20
cu ft. of air in 1 hour and 80
minutes then 80 pupils will
breath 20S0 cu. ft. of air In
school period of 1 hour and 30
minutes; 1 pore ntof this 2080
cu. ft. is carbon dioxide or 88.20
cu ft. Since the ordinary
school room holds about 8800
cu. ft tho air in it at tho end of
a period of 1 hour and 80 min-
utes would have 1 per cent of
carbon dioxide in it if it were
air tight. And with tho best
ventilation possible in the wintor
time thoro will boat least of
1 por cent of carbon dioxide in
the room. This is 12 times as
much as there should be.
Though carbon dioxide is in
jurious the bad effects of an
overcrowded room comes largely
from another 3ourco Breathed
air has impurities in it com mon-
ly called organic waste matter
Tho reabsorption of these im
purities is what helps to cause
drowsiness and headache The
bad odor found in crowded
rooms comes from tho rapid
decomposition of this organic
matter. So it is not only un
healthy but simply filthy.

To the Editor
At your request to look over
the field itud feel tho pulse of
tho people residing in the neigh
borhoodof the old scouring mills
and iu the vicinity of the Spen-
cer addition as lo their opinion
of the public school buildings
whether they consider them am
plo and largo enough for the
children of San Angelo. I will
say thnt I spent the gi eater
part of Monday and Tuesday in
interviewing the residents of our
It is the sentiment of all whom
I have interviewed that the pub-
lic school buildings are entirely
too small for the number of
children who at present attend.
There are a great many fam-
ilies who feel that their children
should have the opportunity of
attending a public school but
they do not feel safe in sending
their children whore it is so over-
crowded and take the risk of
bringing homo sickness conse
quently a great many are obliged
to send their children to private

MASS MEETING THE THJNCI.
Ill an interview with County
Attorney Alien he said after
looking at tho law on the subject
he did not think it advisablo to
change tho present law and
mode of raising school funds
for if it was incorporated for
school purposes it would limit
us to un .area of two square
miles uud less money would bo
raised than at prosont.
He thinks tho proper thing is
a mass meetiug of men women
and children to bo held at the
Courthouse and that the money
should be raised by subscrip-
tion and no is on record as wil-
ling to contribute $50 or more if
necessary. Doputy County and
District Clerk Jim Keating is iu
favor of a mass meeting and

tion further ho says thoro ure
