Having the chance of visiting our new school building lately and noticing what a wonderfully well-equipped building it is, I feel proud that Hampton is so fortunate as to possess such a building. The auditorium so splendidly lighted and ventilated and so symmetrical in lines was a pleasure to be in. A fine piano was much admired and showed good judgment in the choosing. This is a splendid hall for small affairs and should be kept as it is-in a very satisfactory condition. Great credit is due the janitor. Having the use of such a building is well worth the taxes we pay.
