Floor Plans For The New Saline Higlr School Here's what you've been waiting- for—a chance to examine the proposed" floor plan of the Saline Area High School. In these 86,000 square feet of school building are incorporated many of the wise suggestions made by teachers who work with our community children every day; the knowledgeable ideas of architect - : Guido A. Binda whose experience 1 in building has been supplemented by follow-up study of similar plans in action; and the attitude of the Saline Board of education who wants' to build adequately but not extravagantly for the area. You won't see a swimming pool in''this preliminary plan. Research and inquiry .have revealed that the upkeep for this "water wonderland" community which is planning for basic- needs, but seeking also to live within its valuation. Nor will you see a plush auditorium with permanent foam cushioned seats, deep pile carpets and velvet draperies. You will find space provision, however, in case a swimming pool ever seems feasible, and you will see two large areas equipped with stages and designed for the use of students and community alike. Banquets, concerts, plays', adult and parents programs .will find ample room—and welcome. We built too sparingly when we constructed the elementary school. The fact was brought home forcibly to everyone when area children filled all trie rooms the first year. Additions iand emergency measures had to be provided at once. Future elementary pressures will be relieved by converting the present high school into an intermediate school. Fifty-two seniors graduated .'this yfear. The present -Sixth grade will—if current figures pertain— graduate about ninety. Below the sixth grade all classes are running 125* or more. Census takers who are currently at work on the an-, nual school count, are reporting new increases in dwellings' and consequent numbers .of children all along the line. Spelling out.our future need may prove disturbing to- area residents, but the facts are irrefutable and must be faced and met realistically.- The Area School Board does not* wish to.make.the mistake of underbuilding again. Neither does it want to overestimate and*, build facilities far in advance of-actual need as revealed by the" census. This principle* is", evident in the plans'which allow for projected enrollments, and also dovetail into any wing addition--,/should they become necessary. ' Of one-story construction, 'tlie building as proposed would be of steel framework with concrete block and brick walls. Heavily traveled areas such a the corridor and cafeteria, would ""have terrazzo floor; class rooms, as-, phalt tile. The plan is a hollow square type, with an open court in the center, providing' light for inside class rooms. The square itself in pleasant weather can become an open-air auditorium of band concerts, class exercises, or pageants. Not shown in the plan, but present in idea form, is the hope for a band shell in this court, or possibly a two way conversion of the cafeteria stage for fns'ide and outside use. A cafeteria, of proven popularity, has been provided in the proposed school, but this single purpose for a 40 x 90 area, used only during the noon meal, seemed a wvaste of spate to the planners. Consequently another need—for an auxiliary theatre and stage—was considered and .met, and the combined cafeteria-theater will seat as many people as our present gymnasium. Confusion between gym, speech, and band activities in the future can be avoided. This combination room with easy access from the entry, can be used by the community as well. For school or community events involving as many as 1200 people, the large 104 x 90 gymnasium, which also has" its stage, will be useful. Side bleachers and a separate entrance will channel traffic and seat audiences with a minimum of confusion. During school •lours the gym may be divided to provide physical education for boys and girls simultaneously. Ad- joining are locker rooms and space for boys, girls, and the regular varsity - players and their equipment Also ad jointing the large gymnasium is a 40 x 45 band room with two practice rooms, band Storage, and office included. Twelve regular academic classrooms, measuring 26 x 30 are in the plan. One Of these has a small stage at one end for use by English and speech, classes. Three, large science rooms, 50 x 30, "complete with storage, conference and experiment rooms, make up -the northeast side of the" building "and a 60'x 30 aits and crafts room—also with storage—adjoins.. .,- Home economics occupies' a,72 x 30 area with all accepted laboratory equipment* and the vocational agriculture and shop -rooms across the haU "include' a laboratory, a classroom, a -farm shop, wood shop, and (metal shop. Not shown Wood in this plan,' but a recent change wdtitld place, the Oraiting and draw- fnf^room near-the. commercial' department,,'.and- give metal work a rpom alone. An exit to the rear of the farm" shop leads to the land laboratories, and allows for easy entry of, farm tractors. and ma-. ,cbh!>ery Into the shop. K_ : Vbu ^^^i\si^^^i^ti^i^riA offices and nurse's * headquarters are located at the left of the north lobby, and a- 44 x 45 library with small work and conference rooms adjoining, is at the right of this entrance. 'Near the school-office, are the commercial departments' three rooms for typing, bookkeeping and office machine training. As you study the plan, keep in mind that these are preliminary working ideas, drawn up in order that the Board, school administrators and community might visualize the functional whole. Changes may, and probably will occur. But in general this is the result of ideas from a variety of sources. This—in essence—is what the community tax payers will vote on June 24th. This is the tangible result of the $1,650,000 bond issue. 2 Saline Residents Involved In Accidents Carl E. Corniel of 209 Harris St., Saline was involved in a two car collision. The other party involved was Jesie James Bird of 7415 Carpenter Rd.,- Ypsiianti.' Bird was taken to Dr. .Prout and treated for a neck injury.
