To American Legion Auxil
iary Members And Guests
At Meeting Friday Night;
Good Number Present
The American Legion Auxiliary
held one of the most enthusiastic
and entertaining meetings had
since its organization, on Friday
evening. The meeting was open
ed with the usual formalities, be
ing presided over by its Presi
dent, Mrs. J. E. Malone, after
which it was turned over to the
guest speaker, Lt. Col. Robert C.
H/mes, Commanding Officer of
the Eastern Personnel Reassign
ment Center at Camp Butner. He
spoke at length on what the Re
assignment really is and held the
attention of the audience from
beginning to the end of his speech
as it was a subject vitally impor
tant to the entire audience.
He stated that It was establish
ed in February of this year pri
marily to handle casualties before
the men began coming back from
overseas. Since April when those
in the Mediterranean and Euro
pean Areas are returned after
eighteen months and those in the
Pacific In two years it has been a
real Reassignment Center. These
men arrive through a port of em
barkation through Reserve Sta
tion for twenty-four hours and
are then giyen a twenty-one day
leave. After this leave the great
problem is entertaining the men.
They are at Camp Butner from
14 to 21 days, and while being
processed the authorities try to
get them away from Army rou
tine as much as possible. They
need home entertainment rather
than group entertainment, possi
bly two or three men in a group.
All of the men want to go some
where and this Is where the peo
ple in the various towns can do
their part. The invitations mast
all come through a Special Ser
vice officer. Col. Hanes further
stated that in entertaining theso
boys not to make r a lot of fancy
preparations, as they would im
mediately detect or suspect insin
cerity and they want to be in a
real American home, and want to
feel at home. They want ordi
nary home meals, served in the
usual manner. The men are easy
to entertan, he stated and they
enjoy talking and being talked to.
They are our own wholesome
American boys and need to bd
treated that way. Preceding this
part of the speech he spoke of the
physical condition of many of the
men at the Reassignment Center,
which was discussed later on.
His speech was most enlighten
ing and showed to the group just
what they could do to help the
boys get over a difficult period.
There was a round table discus
sion and everyone talked Infor
mally of just what could be
done. Each person present ex
pressed their desire to help in any
way possible, and Sunday, Novem
ber the 19th was chosen as the
first time to attempt any form of
entertainment, all present asking
that they be allowed (o have one

For Bus Statioo
May Use Part of Franklin
Hotel If Connecting Prob
lems Can Be Arranged
A Union Bus Station for Louis
burg is becoming much more of
n reality as time passes. Wed
nesday Mr. W. G. Lascaster com
pleted the purchase of the Frank
lin Hotel property on Main Street
and" soon announced that if the
hall and dining room of the form
ler hotel could be arranged accep
table to the Bus Companies and
the public he would offer same
for such use.
This could be made a very ac
ceptable station. It would have
an entrance from Main Street and
also on the side and back. The
main waiting rooms would be off
the streets, but this condition ex
ists in most other cases. If ar
rangements can be made for a
bus drive way over the property
between the Hotel building and
the Health Office then all loading
and unloading could be made off
the street and very convenient.
And if this cannot be arranged it
is also possible for the buses t<>
drive to the rear of the building
through the alley next to the Ar
mory and load and unload from
This arrangement would neces
sitate some convenience of get
ting back to the street again.
This is an opportunity which
also presents a problem. But
like all other opportunities ot
value carry with them problems
to be solved. It is believed and
hoped a solution can be found
and arrangements made for .in
early opening ot a convenient
and commodious Bus Station.
