aeventy years. th walls of the old
building had housed one of tha most
famous of all North Carolina's educa

Judges, leading business men and edu
cators of the state had gotten their
education 'within its walls. It was
here that Dr. Braxton Craven laid the
foundations of that neat Methodist

over the south the great athletic
teams that brought honor and dis
tinction to the college and to the
state. - .
"So strong were the walls of the old
building, although it had been con
demned as unsafe, that 400,000 brick
from the old walls and 100,000 feet
of lumber have been salvaged and
will be use3 by the contractors in the
construction of the new building. In
the construction of the old building
about 70 years ago Captain Thomas
Rice had used the best brick to be ob
tained at that time and had selected
the timber from the hearts of trees.
Forty odd years ago the builder ' of
the new part of the old college build
ing had also used the best of material.
Capt. Rice also built the. bridge at
Franklinville which has stood since
1847' as ah example of his handiwork.
-The new institution will be a two
story structure 'of red brick somewhat
m the shape of an "L". It will have
a large number of windows scientifi
cally arranged. On both floors a
long hall extends the length of the
building connecting all rooms. ' There
will be five exits for the school in
case of fire. Several well-lighted lab
oratories will be arranged: The school
building is being erected for service
rather than for appearances. .
The new building will be a long
