This great necessity has been realized by the citizens themselves. but more especially by the school board, school faculty, students, and others who are in close enough Contact with the school condition. As to size, the building is very school. For the last three years it has been auditorium into two high school class rooms to feel its distressing and dangerous unsatisfactory for the needs of the necessary to divide the stage of the which are certainly very undesirable as such and also to rent two rooms in the local Masonic Building in order to ac- commodate the increased number of primary pupils. It was in 1927, the last year of Lester K. Ade's principalship, that these ous discussions resulted in definite action when the Muncy School Board chased a twelve acre plot located on East Penn Street. This ground has claimed by State school authorities to be a fine school site and one of the ideal in the entire State. vari- pur- been most Several years after this first step was taken, a careful survey was made in order to discover the best means of accommodating the increasing number of stu- dents in the community. This survey resulted in the consolidation of Muncy Borough with Muncy Creek Township into a joint school system. The main reason for this move was the fact that Muncy Creek was also in need of new school facilities. Other deciding factors were, first, that from all viewpoints it always had been more financially economic to maintain one large, complete educational system than to support a few small ones, which in themselves cannot be very complete, and secondly, the fine roads in use today make transportation one of the smallest problems which confront a school board. Now that the site of the building was at hand and the plans for the accom- modation of the students assured, the next step was in regards with the executive department. It was finally agreed that the Muncy Borough School Board, and the Muncy Creek Board consolidate and form a joint School Board. The members of this board are as follows: President, C. C. Pfleegorg Vice- President, J. Rollins Ebnerg Secretary, Howard Opp, Treasurer, Geo. M. Brelsfordg Members: Harold Turner, I. B. Wells, Ray Sprout, Harry Waltman, George Gardner. Within the last year all interests have turned to the construction of the edifice itself. After consultation with the State Department in Harrisburg and others in position to advise, the Board decided the best plan would be to organize a school association which would construct the building and make it available for the school districts' use. Many prominent citizens expressed their interests in this community 3'?:::2:2.-::-'-'2:::2:l-.:.'C-7-'::5:-':gF:2:sig-:-':2:g:2'2:g:2:'-::.'-'iU:::2':!-.::2'!:g:'-Fl-.g:l'2:::f-3'-:-.5'. :5'3 l9l

The following are members of this corporation: President, Charles Waldrong Vice-President, Frank Heilmang Secretary, Eugene P. Berting Treasurer, S. B. Wilt, Members: Milton E. Reeder, Frank H. Smith, Clark Dimm, Dr. H. F. Baker, Russel Fritz. The selection of Lawrie and Green as architects for the construction was the first active step of this new association. After working with the State Depart- ment, Lawrie and Green submitted the plans for the building and with careful de- liberations the Board chose the present plan. The majestic edifice is built of beau- tiful mountain stone and is divided into three wings with a total of fifty-six rooms. Thirty of these rooms will be used for classrooms and with all modern conveniences and arrangements which they will have, fuller and more interesting schedules for studies will be a most improving satisfaction to both teachers and students. The approximate enrollment of the entire school will be nine hundred, which is an increase of about five hundred over the present enrollment. The faculty will be composed of thirty teachers which are evenly divided between the high school and the grades, fifteen teaching grade subjects and fifteen teaching in the high school departments. The courses of study will be three in number, namely, academic, commercial, and general. The added conveniences and facilities with which the new building will be equipped, will lend to the fulfilling of more extra curricular activities. For example, the plans of the gymnasium have already resulted in a change from a one- hour-a-week Physical Education Class at the present time, to a two-hour-a-week class. Likewise in the other extra curricular activities, such as Home Economics, Dramatics, and Music, similar reformations will take place. The actual construction of the building began in October, 1931, and is ex- pected to be completed by July 15, 1932. When finished, this edifice will present an appearance so majestically beautiful, that the citizens of Muncy and surround- ing districts may once more, justly feel the pride and satisfaction in having modern educational facilities. 3' "-.-'52-'::-':2:f:2:.-"'-':::1'2r.:"':s"1'-.-:':22:22'22:22:'-::-'2'2v::2"'-:1'-'f::-2'-:2'-::"2:::1-'ff'-:S' "M illl
