Rubble rock building with a WPA plaque.

START WORK ON DUFFAU PROJECT: Construction work is under way on the $13,500 gymnasium building of the Duffau school, with Bryan Casbeer, of Lampasas, as project superintendent. The project is being financed through a bond issue of the Duffau school district and the Works Progress Administration.

W. W. Stevens, area engineer, Hamilton, was in Stephenville last Monday and reported that 32 WHA laborers were employed on the project. He said that 50 men were expected to be hired by April 23, when the WPA will complete a school ground improvement project at Alexander. Laborers on the Alexander project will be transferred to the Duffau job, Stevens said.

Duffau citizens, by a vote of three to one last November 26, approved a proposed $4,500 bond issue to finance the school
