This was true also in upstate NY where the old elementary schools had the facilities in the basement and the use carried over to other buildings. I wonder who first came up with that four classroom, foursquare floor plan. Oh, the basement was also where we went during air-raid drills, also called "bomb drills." Nostalgia ain't what it used to be. Bill King SLAT University of Arizona
