Although the authorities hope to have the Gymnasium completed by the first of December, there does not appear to be much possibility of its being opened until a somewhat later date. There is still much work to do in painting and finishing, and there are very few men to do it. The steam fitters have not got steam into the pipes as they expected to have done before this, and a considerable number of pipes have yet to be laid. The electrical furnishings are not expected to be entirely fitted until after the building has been opened. Until the opening no lockers will be assigned. As, however, there are nearly two thousand lockers, there is no danger of any one being disappointed.
