Mrs. Allara then showed what she considered to be the most glar ing need in the Wright Denny School. The pictures taken at the :Wright Denny School she said indicated questionable playground scenery, an inadequate first-aid room, a lack of a teacher's lounge and a cafeteria serving ab@ut 568 Children daftly. The pictures which Mrs. Allara showed also pointed out the two i exits leading from the cafeteria which were regarded as being too narrow; she said there are no fire escapes on the bulldix~g and in case of fire at least one exi~ would be blocked, ca,~ing panic and true fire hazard. She proposed that in view of these existing conditions that the P. T. A. solicit community funds to build a cafeteria on the ground level and present the addition to the Wright Denny School as a gift to the Jeffersoea County Board of Education. Samuel S.
