have this new junior high school
located on a new site near the
present school, scarcity of avail-
able land in the section may make
it necessary to build the new junior
high school, if approved, on the
northwest corner of the same site,"
Mr. Moreland said.
To Determine Cost
A new building for Pershing was
one of three new junior high
schools recommended in the report
submitted by Mr. Moreland and
Mr. Mills. Suggested also were
renovations or additions to Hous-
ton's 125 public school buildings
out of the $7,500,000 bond issue
fund which was voted in 1944. Mr.
Moreland, Mr. Mills and Stanley
Nunn, coordinating architect, were
given the job of determining how
much the lecommendations made in
the report will cost. No recommen-
dations for new senior high schools
I. Q. Muller, who has been a
leader in the Southwestern sec-
tion's campaign to get a senior
high, as well as better junior and
elementary facilities, stated early
this week that the Southwestern
Educational Committee will con-
tinue to work for adequate schools
for the area.
A 20-acre site and a five-acre
plot donated by the Braes-Heights
Realty Company will probably be
used eventually for a senior high
and an additional elementary
school for the area.
More Pupils This Term
Increased enrollment at Pershing
and West University schools for
the new term starting Monday will
necessitate certain shifts to take
care of the additional pupils, Mr.
Moreland said. Present plans in-
clude dividing the elementary
school's auditorium into two class
rooms by erecting a partial parti-
tion. This will be done if investi-
gations show that it would not pre-
sent fire and other hazards in order
to avoid placing one or two sections
on a double session basis, Mr.
The elementary school is con-
verting its visual educational room
into a class room and is using its
cafeteria for visual education two
days a week and for physical edu-
cation three days a week in addi-
tion to three lunch periods a day,
The conversion of the auditorium
into two class rooms will cut down
the number of assemblies for the
elementary school as only two

grades can be accommodated at one
time in the cafeteria, Clarence Or-
man, principal, and Zelpha Shu-
mate, assistant principal, stated.
Occasionally a "swap" can be made
with the junior high and assemblies
held in the junior high gymnasium,
but that means moving the physi-
cal educational classes which nor-
mally meet in the gymnasium into
the elementary school.
