Smith Requests Paving of Walks A request that sidewalks in Chapel Hill be paved was made to the Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen by E. Car rington Smith last Monday night. Sections from the Town Hall to the Carolina Inn and on both sides of Franklin street from Hillsboro street in the east to the new stores on West Franklin street .were emphasized in the appeal. According to Mr. Smith, the dust and dirt tracked into the stores makes for a very unsanitary condition. Also the sand and gravel is ruining the floors and carpets in sope establishments. Smith contended that the initial cost of paved sidewalks would be offset by the savins in maintenance costs. The Aldermen talked of paving sidewalks in all of Chapel Hill but the lack of funds prevents any action beyond the talking stage. m m i ''J 1 f , : J. n "4 ' 1 ' V ' i! s; - -l t - " - , vt I I -. s ; ! f -.v.-.-. ..-..s-.-.v. :--v--.v.v. ; i ft"''!
