Mr J. R Saussy, vice president of the
Board of Education, continues to cherldh
a hope that the board and the trustees of
Chatham Academy will manage to recon
cile their architectural differences, and
that anew Chatham Academy, suiting the
ideas of the one and the purse of the
other, will yet urlse from the ashes of
last winter's fire.
Mr Saussy refuses to believe that there
Is any substantial difference between the
two bodies on the subject of the construe- I

"Why. no." he aal.l. "there Isn t any
real disagreement between th* Board of
Eduratlon and the Trustees of the Chat

"There wasn’t enough money at the
disposal of the trustees to permit the erec

Education wanted, and tn© Board offered
to pay an annual tent, which would make
up the deficit in a few y© irs. As we
ma*le this offer, we thought we should be
entitled to a voice in the ©eieotloci of
plans. Th© trustees accorded 11* this
right and from It resulted the acvtral
conferences that were held
