Early in the winter of 1910-11 the writer was intrusted by the Trustees of Union School District No. 12, Town of Vernon and City of Oneida, N.Y., with the task of building a new four-classroom school house which should, in addition to complying with all the regulations of the New York State Department of Education, be as nearly fireproof as possbile, keep within an appropriation of $17,000, be so arranged as to appear symmetrical and complete, while in reality be only one-half of an eight-room building ultimately desired. The school house shown by the accompanying illustration is the answer to the many problems involved in carrying out the task.
