(By Nell Battle Lewis)
Thirty-one counties in Non
aroiina have no form of iibra
ervice whatever, which mea
tat almost two million people
he state, approximately two-tnir
i the population of North Car
na, are without the advantag
ind pleasures of books. There a
na. ber of other counties in wh!
.rary service at present is ve
adequate, and only fourteen cou
es have appropriations suffieiei
i cording to American Library A
lociation, to warrant the title
• County Library’’.
In order to supply North Car
lina’s book-starved millions th
Citizens Library Movement, hea
ed by William T. Polk, of Warrei
ton, in conjunction with the Nort
Carolina Library Commission, wil
ask the General Assembly of 193 r
for $150,000.00 for State aiii t<
libraries, believeing that such ait
is as much a function of govern
ment as public education, publi;
health, or public welfare.
Members of this movement who
have studied the library situation
in North Carolina fftid that many
counties are too small a unit to
provide effective book service for
all the people. They think that
the supporting region should be
larger, big enough to provide,
with State cooperation, more ade
quate funds. In determining the
size of regions of support, they say
trade areas, roads, and physical

committee and announces that th
regular admission price for specta

if dancers are present for the firs
half-hour, in which only square
dancing will be allowed, half th
regular admision price will b
charged. In other words, if you'r
present the first half-hour, you era
remain for the whole dance for on
ly fifty cents whereas, after 9:0 f
the full admission price will be i
Nelms' String Band will play fu
the square dance, which begins a
7:30 and Jimmy Poyner’s Band will
play for the popular dancing fror
9:00 on. A large attendance is ex
peited since this is the first squan
and popular dance staged in thi:
state for a President’s Ball.
