    In making a report on the milk and meat inspections for the City of Newnan, I I
wish to state that the dairies are all in good condition, and most of the cows hav1'
been tested during the last twelve months either by the Federal Government or my-
self, and we found a very small percentage of reactors, and they were immediately,
removed from the heard and replaced by other animals that passed the tests sat is- I
factorily. Fram a sanitary sandpoint, all of the dairies are in good condition.    ,
                                                                                                   I
    As for the markets, I have not made as many inspections in 1945 as I have been                 'I


making in previous years, due to the fact that there was so little meat stored in
the refrigerators, that I did not think it necessary, and on several occasions                     'I

when I was making inspections, I would not find any meat at all in over fifty per-
cent of the boxes. The sanitary conditions of these markets has been good all      I
during the year, and I am hoping'that the meat situation will set better, and if   ,
it does, I will again start my regular periodic inspections of the markets.        I

                                                                                                   I

        "THE Mayor and Aldermen
         ,City of Newnan
          Newnan, Georgia
         Gentlemen:
             At the January meeting of the Board of Education the President
         appointed a building committee with the instructi9n to investigate
         the condition of all of the buildings in the school system and make
         a report, together with such recommendations as they saw fit, at the
         March meeting of the Board.
             At our meeting on March 25 the above committee made their report
         and advised the Board that all of the buildings in the system, includ-
         ing the Gymnasium, are in need of repairs. The Gymnasium, the High
         School, the Pinson Street School and the Ruth Hill School buildings
         need considerable repairs and improvements. The Pinson street and
         Ruth Hill buildings are especially in a deplorable condition and each
         of these schools is badly. in need of expanded facilities. No repairs
         of consequence have been made in eight to ten years to any of the
         school buildings.
             The gymnasium in its present state is an eyesore and needs consi-
         derable money spent on it to put it in usable condition.
             The other buildings in the system need minor repairs and painting.
             We estimate that all of the above will cost abount Twenty Thousand
         ($20,000.00) Dolla~s and we respectfully ask your helpin taking care
         of these urgently needed repairs and improvements. We regret to call
         upon you for this, but during the eight or ten years we have called
         upon you only for the necessary funds for teachers salaries and other
         operating costs. No funds for such repairs have been included in our
         budgets. We wish it were possible to secure this money for other
         sources.
                                      Very truly yours,
                                            R. S. Mann
