Now I need not prolong this strain;
you are as familiar with the old build building

to convince you that we must have a

this afternoon, not so much for the
purpose of bewailing our manifold
shortcomings in this respect, as to
consider frankly the situation, and, if
possible, devise ways and means by
which Ocala can soon possess a school
building in keeping with our other
public buildings. To get a thorough
understanding of the problem we
must deal largely with statistics.

She withdrew her head discreetly
in time to avoid being convicted of
hearing her son respond. "Aw, rats
