Angle School appeared to be ironed out enough Tuesday to allow the job to be finished. Work was delayed slightly when a dispute arose over who was to put the special chemical-resistant stone tops on the sinks in the science rooms. Plumbers had been holding off hooking up any of the sinks to the water system, but, received the go-ahead from union officials on Tuesday to hook up the sinks, Martin Korsmo. of the Korsmo Brothers Construction Company, general contractors for the job said. In question were the tops for 40 tables for the science rooms. The work involved included set- ting the tops on the tables and tightening down the fasteners which hold them in place. Carpenters were doing the work, Korsmo said. After the dispute arose he checked with union offi- cials and was instructed by an of- ficial of the National Carpenter's unio nto continue as he was. Of the 40 tables, the tops of 34 are now in place. National representatives of the carpenter's and plumber's arrived in Shelton Wednesday to investi- gate the problem and work out a solution for future jobs. The placement of the sink tops and connecting them to the w- ter system along with a few other clean-up jobs is all that. remains to finish the new school addition.
