Tradesmen hammer by Shane Moore "The Fioftse that Jack built"'? No, it's the house '. Alton High's two construction trades c ses are building at Humben Road ant. :z.1hany Lane in Godfrey. Students are under the direction of Mr. Dennis Morgan, the new building trades instructor who taught last year at St. Charles, Mo. 'I he house was started last school year but didn't make it above the ground. Now, Mr. Morgan has got people working and already walls are up, the roof is on, shingles are down and the house is over half completed! The house is a ranch style, part brick and aluminum siding, on one level with a fully- extended basement underneath. There are three bedrooms, kitchen with finished wood cabinets, living room, dining room and two bathrooms. The house is fully carpeted. A two-car garage will be at- tached There are two building trades classes at the .I.B. Center. One session meets from 8- ll a.m. and the second session works from I2-3 p.m. Students are not just sitting in the class memorizing and writing about construction, they are actually out on the job doing it. Their work includes carpentry, brick- laying, plumbing and roofing. The Vocational Electricity classes. taught by Powder Puff Although the name sounds fragile, Powder Puff football is anything but. Many practice hours are put into preparation for the game. T0 the participants, the one game they get to play is as important as the boys' regular football season. The game warrants some professional referees. Mostjuniors and seniors are in favor of shelling out some money to get real referees with black and white striped uniforms. Referees are paid on tht- ncrage S30 each game. The Student Council made roughly S375 on this year's Powder Puff and Roger Smlth Mr. Don Maloney, is connecting the wiring. All of these guys who are getting experience and learning to work as a group, hope to make money in construc- tion after graduation. The building classes have many problems to overcome with their house. Vandalism is a major hazard. Vandals have torn down the walls, stolen equipment and written obscenities .Although no action has been take to stop these culprits, the class repairs the damaged property. Rain is another problem that is being worked around. When it hits, the guys work on the inside of the house or stay back at the Center and study their textbooks. Cold weather is setting in but that won't stop the work. Brush fires will be built on the worksite to provide heat for the hands to keep the hammers pounding. "lt will be a fine house and should be completed by early May," stated Mr. Morgan. 'The market price value is close to 08,000 and will be bid by the school district in June," Mr. Morgan concluded. needs pro refs game. The game would pay for the referees by itself, if the Student Council would be willing to give up some of the profit. More important than giving up money, the players would have to saciificejumping off sides, holiing and clipping on every play. A professional referee wouldn't miss a penalty. A fair game deserves fair play. The girls are gi- -ig to have to make it worth the effort of the referees. There are some sacrifices to he made. but we think it would be worthwhile. lt would eliminate some of the familiar complaints that the referees were paid off in cookies and clean up the field play.
