The New Alumni Gym
Auburn High is to be the owner of one of the finest gymnasiums in the state. A fact significant in itself, but which means more than that to the student of A.H.S. for three years we have looked forward to the realization of this dream - now it is in view.
Through the efforts of Mr. E. O. Little, chairman of the Gymnasium committee, and the Committee itself, the Alumni were interested in this project; not only interested, but pledged themselves to secure $5,000 as a nucleus, around which to build the fund. Auburn High School, by means of a county wide drive to sell reserved seats for basketball games and secure additional pledges, added $4,500 to the fund. The American Legion Post has recently gone on record stating that it will secure an additional $5,000.
With such cooperation as this, the school board has found little difficulty in financing the new building. It will be ready for use by the opening of the next School Year.
