Work was started yesterday on the new Vineyard Haven school building. T. L. Cottrell of Erie, Pa., is in charge of the work, which is under contract by the A. M. Lonburg Construction Co. of St. Louis. Mr. Cottrell has just come from Newburyport where he was in charge of work n a new post office and also a Masonic temple.
The stakes are up and the excavation has been started. It is expected that the digging will require about a week. The forms will then be built and cement poured, and as soon as this work has hardened the bricklaying will commence. Mr. Cottrell says there will be no importation of labor unless it is absolutely necessary.
