Magirl manager Tow site department fort Dodge Iowa. $-21 to the patrons of the schools since it is not customary in Ames to publish the proceedings of the Board of education in the local papers As superintendent of your schools without consulting the Board or acting for them i beg to Lay before you a few of the conditions As shown in my Annua report number boys enrolled. 360 number girls enrolled.354 total. 714 number fourth Ward pupils by grades High school. 14 eighth. 2 seventh. I sixth. I fifth.,.,.,. To fourth.,.,., 4 third. 6 second. To first. I. La total. 70 number pupils from third Ward in seventh and eighth grades in North schools 26. Before commenting on the above Tig urea i wish to say that it it my duty to see that school rooms Are furnished to accommodate the pupils. I u my report to the Board i asked fur two More rooms and recommended three. This was to provide fur next year Only. The Board judged that they would not be justified in providing fur Only one year and decided to avoid the mistake of three years ago by erecting a building of sufficient site to accommodate the children for several years. I made no recommendation regarding Tho nature or location the proposed building. Personally i am in favor of a High school building located at some distance from tin other building and containing in addition to other necessary rooms two primary rooms fur the Little folks in the Vicinity. This would remove the High school students from among the children of the upper grades and avoid much of Ute trouble which always occurs where hundreds of children Are crowd j upon the same ground. Then the present building Contd All be used for the grades below the High school As the growth in numbers required. This it seems to me is most desirable but i shall be satisfied with any suitable rooms the electors May see fit to provide. Before further sentiment in favor of a school in fourth Ward develops let a few facts be made Clear. The report show that there Are fifty six pupils below the High school in fourth Ward. These Pupil Are distributed through the eight grades. At least two teacher would be required with four Grad to the teacher and nut less than Twenty four recitations in each room each Day. This would be a Ward school with country school conditions less than twelve min utes to each recitation. Could these pupils keep step with the Down town child Ren with one Grade in a room and from Twenty to thirty minutes Given to each recitation if a first and second primary school with one teacher and Twenty one pupils should be placed in fourth Ward what would be done with the other forty five children besides it would Cost More to provide for these Twenty one pupils than it now costs to transport the seventy Down town where they a distributed through the nine rooms and their numbers Are scarcely Felt. The motor people receive fifty dollars a month for transporting the seventy children four times a Day. This is two Hundred eighty rides for two Hundred fifty cents less than a cent a ride. One teacher janitor and incidentals would Cost seventy five dollars a month and still forty five children would have to be provided for elsewhere. As it now is those seventy children Are All taken care of by the same number of teachers that would be required without them and All at the Cost of fifty dollars a month for transportation. That this last statement May be shown to be a fact observe that the two additional teachers absolutely required for next year Are for first and second grades together and for seventh and eighth grades together. By consulting the figures we find Only three seventh and eighth Grade pupils in fourth Ward. These can be accommodated without extra Cost As the additional teacher is required without them. There Are eleven first Grade and ten second Grade pupils. Another first and second Grade teacher is employed for the North school next year and these Twenty one children can he distributed among the three first and two second Grade teachers Ai ready provided. As a financial proposition not a bust Ness Man in the City would consider a school in fourth Ward a Good investment. Apart from the financial Side however the Down town schools have advantages. There is emulation among the schools and inspiration in numbers. There Are special advantages in music drawing and manna training. The child Ren do not have As far to walk As the average Down town Pupil. They Are under the clo a supervision of the motor officials to and from school Aud parents May know where their children Are and what they Are doing. It was also urged during the special election last week that instead of build ing on the North Side another room should be provided on the South Side for seventh and eighth grades. All pupils on the South Side up to seventh Grade Are now quartered in the third Ward building. The report shows Twenty six seventh and eighth Grade pupils from the third Ward attending school at the North building. Since these children Range from eleven to fifteen years of age and Are so few in numbers would it not be better to them to walk the compar at very Short distance to the North school than to provide another room and teacher in Tho third Ward Iii conclusion i am glad to say that race suicide has met with a striking rebuke in Ames. The Homes Are filled with children and they Are of the right kind ton. They Are Worth raising. A god bless Mem. Every we keep school without them. Let us give them the Best accommodations that we and our successors can afford. Respectfully c. R. Scroggie.
