Richard Henry Pratt proposes amending his previous authority to abandon the Smead Willis system for the girls quarters due to its failures in the Public Schools of Cleveland as well as other difficulties raised by their employees and engineers. In addition, Pratt asks for 12 new closet fixtures, the changing of 10 sets of old fixtures to the new closet fixtures, and additional drainage for a savings of $200.
