E. K. Fristoe, Cor.
(Morning Olympian August 30, 1932)
The vote on the school bond issue for $9,000 was carried a small majority. The election was held Wednesday for the purpose of voting bonds with which to build a new modern gymnasium. The total number of ballots cast was 265 with 140 favoring the bonds and 125 opposing the issue.
Yelm’s new grade school is nearing completion and will be ready for the fall school opening. This replaces the unit built two years ago, also the old upper grade building and the gymnasium; both destroyed by fire. Erection of the new gymnasium will begin immediately after the bonds ave been sold. J. Beckett of Seattle is architect for the building.
