LOUISBURG, N. CAROLINA FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER SO. I OSS
Pour Power Conference
Held at Munich Yester
London, Sept. 28. ? Adolf Hit
ter suddenly opened the door to
peace today ? at> almost the exact
hour he had set to send his arm
ies smashing into Czechoslovakia
? by calling Europe's "Big Four"
to meet in Munich tomorrow for
a showdown between the dictators
and the democracies.
At the last moment, the Ger
man Chancellor ? who had been
told bluntly that) the British and
French war machines were being
mobilized to fight him ? -stepped
down from the boldest and most
defiant undertaking of armed
force in modern history.
He gave Europe new hope of
peace, at a moment when every
nabion was resigned to the inevi
tability of war, by agreeing to de
lay, at least 24 hours, the march
of his troops who were to have
plunged across the Czech frontier
at 2 p. m. (8 a. m. E. S. T.) today.
At Munich Today
At Munich, where Naziism was
born in bloodshed 15 years ago,
HiOler will sit down with Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain of
?Great Britain, Premier Benito
Mussolini of Italy and Premier
Edouard Daladler of France to
seek a way out of the headlong
plunge toward war.
The announcejnetft of Hitltr's
abandonment of war plans today
was made by Prime Minister
Chamberlain in t>he House of
Commons under conditions more
sensational than anything that
has occurred in the '-'Mother of
Parliaments" in Its six and a half
centuries of existence.
Chamberlain was speaking and
preparing the nation for war
when a messenger st-umbled in,
bearing word of Hitler's new of

TO DONATE $5,000 TO ARMORY
At a meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners held in
their office in the Court' House 011
Friday before whom a Commit
tee representing the Chamber of
Commerce, of Louisburg. the
Board of Town Commissioners,
Battery B. American Legion and
Legion Auxiliary and citizens were
present and presented the ques
tion of the need for an Armory
and what it would take to get one
and showing the value of the
Battery to the County, the Com
missioners agreed to donate the
sum of $5,000 to assist in the con
struction of the Armory. Those
speaking included M. S. Davis. E.
F. Griffin, D. F. McKinite, J. E.
Malone, T. K. Stockard. Mrs. H.
W. Perry, Chas. P. Green and
ing and Armory
The following explanation of
the proposed Armory building is ,
made by M. S. Davis, C. E.: I
This building is designed and
intended as use for a place for
public gatherings, for the most
part as an educational and ath-i
letic nat-ure. It will also be used ;
as a drill hall and armory for
Battery B, 113th F. A.
The main assembly hall will be
75 ft. wide and 100 ft. long with
a clear pitch of 18 feet 6 inches.
At one end will be a stage 21 ft.
by 22 ft. wifch a dressing room at
each end of same. Around two
sides and one end of the assembly
hall will be balconies with seats
for about 300 people. At the
front will be an entrance lobby
9 feet wide. On the right side of '
tthe building as you face the stage'
will be a locker room, size 15 feet
by 43 feet for lockers and equip
ment. Opening into this will be
toilets containing the usual fix
tures and including stalls for
shower baths, also on the right'
hand side will be a shed for motor
equipment providing storage for
10 pieces of equipment. On the
left of the assembly hall will be
offices, a supplies room, and a
vault. On the left also will be a
social room, a locker room, toilets
with shower stalls for women.
The building will be heated by
steam from a boiler placed under
the stage, and being separated
from stage by a reinforced con
In construction this building
will be known as Class A or Semi
Fire Proof. The floors will be
hardwood on tar-rock fill except
those of the toilets which will be
quarry tile on concrete and the
equipment shed which will be
rammed earth. The roof will be
built-up type carrying a 20-year
guarantee of service. All vertical
walls will be masonry, probably
cinder blocks. The type of con
struction will be such as to afford
a very low maintenance rate, re
pairs betpg probably unnecessary
for many years.
This building will be of great]
service to the people of Franklin
County in general, and the com
munity around Louisburg in par
ticular as a place where assem
blies of any kind of public nature
may be had. It< will afford equip
ment for contests among the
school children of the county,
along all educational lines, par- j
ticularly athletic contests. The
assembly hall offering clear floor
space for the mosti popular games,
with balconies for spectators. It
will also afford satisfactory hous
ing for Battery B, 113th F. A.,
affording them space welt adapted
to fhetr various needs.

way Commissioner T. Boddie]

tention of the-Board with- road
matters pertaining to the County.

the route number of 59 to U. S.
