The only drowback of such chairs is that they are restful to the extent that thoy may promote sleep. A largo bulletin board on one wall affords omple space for displays reloted to the social studios field. Two conference rooms in the rear of the room are used by groups in preparing repons without disrupting tho remainder of the class.
