Equipment List 1964

Supplies to be Ordered for the Summer of 1965 (Suggestions) 

Sports Equipment:

9 Volleyballs
1 doz. leather softballs
1 doz. Louisville softball bats
12 doz. Hales #1 ping pong balls

I suggest that playballs not be ordered this year because it is, I feel, a waste of money. most of the balls became useless after the first week. The garage recommended that we not get them repaired because the balls aren't "worth it." If a better type of ball can be secured, then it would be worthwhile to purchase them.

Crafts Supplies:

16 cartridge pads (drawing paper in pads, 9 sheets 18" x 24")
40 packets poster cutting papers (30 sheets, 9" x 12")
Paint brushes:
4 size 12
16 size 8
10 size 12
Powder colours:
Ostwald standard no. 16 tin, 10 each of the following colours: #622 yellow, #434 purple, #29 black, #661 orange, #106 blue, #17 white (a), #555 red 8, #356 leaf green 23
10 turpentine standard 2 oz.
18 bondfast all purpose adhesive #223 8 oz. bottle
10 1# box, Lepage's Stickfast paste powder #50-1638
