Bibliography: El Paso Herald, April 6, 1928, page 15. Sketches have been make for a $40,000 school building to be built in Carrizozo, New Mexico

Remarks: Our informant in Carizozo, June 6, 1988, had attended the school. It was a combination grade school and high school when he was a student, and looked exactly like the rendering, but without the wings. It was a T-shaped building with an auditorium on the first floor and a cafeteria under the auditorium wing. He recalled the exterior as grey stucco without ornament.
