Pleasant weather earlier this week helped crews feel optimistic they could close in enough of the building to have an indoor environment for win- ter work. The new addition will provide seven classrooms, a multi-pur- pose area and new administra- tive offices. The new facility will have space for pre-school and after-school care. The classroom addition will provide rooms next school year for art, music and science; if school enrollment reaches its projection of 320 students by the year 2000, each grade will have two rooms. The multi-purpose area will be used for year-round physical education activities, all-school functions and extra-curricular sports activities. Father Brenner noted that the old cornerstone from the original church building was going to be used in the new building. It will be turned so that a new side of the stone is visible, and a new inscription will call attention to the "Site of Original Church, erected November 22, 1954" and "School Addition, erected 1997." Viewed from the west, a crane raises a beam as workers guide it into place, right, for the roof of the gym. Below, workers carry insulation and roof- ing material above an area of the classroom adddition which will become the new main entrance to the school.

Serving all faiths since 1904 ed the first names of female celebrities and the last names of serial killers -- for its album "Antichrist Superstar." All three albums were released on the Interscope label, half of which was purchased by MCA soon after Warner Bros. gave up its 50 percent stake in the com- pany following criticism by Ben- nett, Tucker and Lieberman. A March 11 letter to Tucker from MCA vice president for public policy Matthew Gerson said MCA "will not have any ownership interest in or profit from" new or old Interscope albums whose content MCA deemed to be objectionable. Either "their word isn't worth anything" or MCA's standards are too low to be believed, said Bennett. MCA had been given a pass for its stance on Interscope when Bennett, Tucker and Lieberman went after the other five major distributors of record- ed music -- Time Warner, Sony, EMI-Thorn, Polygram and BMG for their continued market- ing ofgangsta rap. "DeLores was right about MCA all along. I was wrong. DeLores said, 'Don't give them a pass. They won't honor it,"' Bennett recalled at the press He added that he had talked with MCA head Edgar Bronf- man on the phone Dec. 9. In what he described as a "candid, contentious" conversation, Ben- nett said Bronfman told him he was "proud" of some of the things MCA had done in the music business under his lead- ership. "Interscope recentlyhad each of the top four slots on Billboard magazine's "Hot 200" album chart, a feat that had not been accomplished by one recording company in 20 years. Leading the way was the Makaveli album, which sold 664,000 copies in its first week in stores. Now, albums that "denigrate our most fundamental values ... are pitched as holiday gifts," Lieberman said. "Those records and their corporate sponsors are telling our children that it's the season for senseless violence, for hopelessness, for violence against women." The trio praised the Wal-Mart retail chain for insisting on hav- ing cleaned-up versions of albums it considers offensive before it will stock them on its shelves. The Tower Records, 'h'answorld and Kmart chains also were com- mended for following a similar to sell albums with a parental advisory sticker to minors. Lieberman said he would like to see other music retailers -- he specifically mentioned Best Buy, Circuit City, Sam Goody and the Warehouse, to follow Wal-Mart's lead. Bennett said that if record- ing artists and their labels were concerned about "artistic integrity," they would proclaim: "This is our art. We will not surrender it." In truth, he added, "That's a facade. It's all about profits." Record labels routinely alter the albums to meet Wal-Mart's demands. Wal-Mart's position is not cen- sorship, Bennett said. "Wal- Mart is doing nothing different from what your newspapers and television stations have done," he said, by refusing to show indecent material to a larger audience. Lieberman said that environ- mental polluters started clean- ing up their act and the envi- ronment because "top executives didn't like being scorned in their community." The same pressure needs to be applied to music moguls, he added, because "they are polluting the hearts and minds and souls of these chil- dren." I I i I ilalll AUTO TOPS. SEAT COVERS.
