New School Would Have Cafetorium

Failure to obtain a federal loan to cover cost of working drawings, for a new Bourne High school means little more than a time delay in starting construction according to William F. Parady, chairman of Bourne's five-man school building needs committee.

If the loan had been granted finished plans and bids on the school would go to town meeting for a new school vote. Now cost estimates by the William W. Drummey Firm of Boston will go before voters instead. Cost estimates are usually within ten percent of the actual cost.

Time lag caused by having to wait until the February town meeting to make working drawings means the new school, if voted, would be started in April or May rather than February. The Drummey firm will complete the drawings within a period of 90 working days.

Tonight the Boston firm will bring revised preliminary plans before the committee incorporating changes recommended by the School Building Assistance commission which reviewed the plans recently.

Instead of combining a gymnasium and auditorium the new high school will combine the cafeteria and auditorium.

First plans called for a five sided gym and' auditorium but the change will mean a standard rectangular gymnasium.

Reason for the change is that building a gym with the necessary acoustical considerations for an auditorium is more expensive than the combined cafeteria and auditorium, or cafetorium.

Expense will be less for the cafetorium according to the assistance commission.
