WEST SIDE JR. HIGH OVERCROWDED


9th Grade photo of Miss Hammette's homeroom. Students are standing along the blackboard
          because there were not enough chairs or desks. The largest classroom in the school has 46 pupils
          and the average is about 40 pupils per class. Educators feel that the ideal number would be about 30.
          Standing are left to right: Sammy Hardin, Louis Hayes, Bill Hathcote, Gary Holloway, Jerry Hammonds,
          Billy Henry, George Harden, Shirley Hammond, and Marilyn Hockersmith.  Second row back is Robert 
          Hipp and in same row far right Charles Heinmiller.

These three girls must share a locker because of the crowded conditions. There are only 637 lockers
          to serve all the students. Discussing how to put the most into the smallest space are Sandra Haupt,
         Janice Henriksen, and Judy Hicks

In the school lunchroom during the first shift, students are troubled with finding a vacant space at one
         of the tables where they can eat. Waiting for a seat while they hold their trays are, left to right:
         Billy Burton, Pat Lawson, Janna Burdell, Gene Deboy and Sandra Horn.
Student Overflow at West Side Junior High. A record enrollment of over 1,300 students
          taxed  facilities at the school to the fullest. Normal capacity for the school is about 900. Homer
          Berry, principal, said that some of the problems in the above photos are being corrected as

          fast as possible, but even with that the school will remain crowded
