GYMNASIUM PLANS GO SLOWLY FORWARD
Hamilton High School may have a gymnasium by next fall;
it may be later, but it is almost certain that a gym will be built before
long. The school board has bought plans, and steps are being taken
to finance the project through the Government.
building be placed behind the high school building and close to it.
It will be built of rock, have a large hardwood floor, an oval roof, thus
making a structure that will be attractive as well as useful.
to the plans Hamilton will have one of the best gymnasiums in Central
Texas when it is complete. A large sized basketball court will be
provided for, seats for over seven hundred spectators will be built in,
and ample locker space for both boys and girls will be furnished in the
dressing room. Toilets, hot and cold showers, gas heat, and a good
lighting system will be included.
A gymnasium is
one building Hamilton has been needing for a long time; the people of this
town are ready for it; the boys and girls have been ready for it for
years; so it will be built as soon as the school board can see its way
clear to get the job done. It will not only be an added attraction
for Hamilton to use in bringing people in from surrounding
districts. It will increase the enrollment of Hamilton High
School. It will furnish a central point for community gatherings
where basketball and other games may be played. It will bring many
people in to Hamilton many times more often than they come now. In
short, it will be of social, educational, and healthful benefit to the
school children of Hamilton and Hamilton County, and will be a business
and asset to the business men of Hamilton
