Work Started On New Auditorium

Monday afternoon the layout from the blue print for the Farnam auditorium was staked. As estimated now, it will take two months to complete the structure of this building. The labor will be done by WPA workers except for the brick layers and other skilled workmen needed.

The auditorium will be built using the east side of the grade building for its west side. As given by R. W. Hughes the contractor from McCook, the dimensions of the playing floor will be 47 ft. by 70 ft being longer than the grade building with a 6 ft. by 10 ft. entrance on the south. The stage will project from the east side being 18 by 38. It will be of regular gymnasium height, the same as the grade building from the lower floor to the top.
