Jane Mccullough favored the skylights argued the natural Light would make the gym a a More pleasant place for students during its Dally use by physical education classes. Barton Jenks who eventually voted against the change noted that if the remaining contingency fund of $50,000 is not used up by the end of the construction period the District will lose a Matching award of $30,000 from the state. No one doubted that uses will eventually be found for the fund however. Uncertainty by Board members was reflected in the fact that two votes were taken. But with the late arrival of several directors an Early negative vote of 3 to 2, with one abstention was swelled to 7 to 2, with mrs. Cummings and mrs. Mccullough again in the minority. Preceding the second vote was an observation from supt. Kelley that the skylights would certainly involve More maintenance problems than a roof without them. And teacher Jon Emerson who attended the Board meeting with mrs. Joyce Lisby and Robert Howe As representatives of the Bennington teachers association argued that it was doubtful whether the presence or absence of skylights would be a matter of great concern to students using the gym. Emerson cited Springfield High schools gymnasium which does not have skylights As a a perfectly lighted facility. The teachers who May be attending Union school meetings regularly following a recent understanding that a More communications was needed Between the association and the Union and other school boards spoke up on another Issue regarding the desirability of purchasing an elaborate system of clocks for the Union High school. Robert Howe said philosophically a we do live by time and we do need the clocks in the classrooms. You do have to know what time it the remarks referred to a discussion of whether an order of clocks might be Cut to 22, despite the fact that the school District would face losses of up to 50 per cent on the remaining clocks by cancelling part of the order. The school Board agreed to see if total refunds for the clocks might be upped to $3,000 from the present figure of $1,900, before actually cancelling part of the order. The Issue several Board members said was not whether the District would lose Money on clocks not purchased but whether the District would be spending Money on clocks not needed. Kelley was vague on the exact number of clocks that would be eliminated but he said that present plans Call for clocks a fall Over the the Union school Board feels generally that clocks can be a disturbing influence in the classroom a though the representatives from the Bennington teachers association hardly confirmed the Point.
