tke Yeail fife of tike city has bea tr-ans
ferred to the “pumping station” at
t&e «asl«m 'tesninal of Davie Street,
•where cr-'wds of the curious have as-
ambled daily to see the pumps in
(operation. The pumps were at work
:and nig^t for a week, l»efore ex
posing the bottom to the scorching
'nys of an August sun.
This pooJ has been gronsid

has provoked so muck discussiun for
the past three weeks.
By actual count 4,8JD0 automobiles,
bringing approximateJy 20,000 j)eople
to and from this Ealeigh ‘tettriosity'’
yesterday. Little was to be seen ex
cept a deep muddy hole in the earth
' with considerable fiJi&y water still on

Extension of time for filing bids was
authorized at a meeting of the Com-
mision on Friday, when it became
known that a number of prospective
bidders desired more margin in which
to make their calculations. A strike
clause in the present contract has
occasioned unusual delay in delivery
of certain publications and an eflort
v/ill likely be made to eliminate that
clause from the new contract. Gen
eral chaos in almost every line of en-
deavor^ when the contract was made
two years ago, appeared to justify
the action tal.en, but the strike pro
vision has pro ven a detriment in the
operation of State departments the

The subject of Mr. Clark's address
was “Forest Fire Prevention” and
he impressed upon his audience the
imperative need and the ultimate re
sults of an organized fire prevention
department in the County. The state
through the Forestry Division of the
North Carolina Gealogical and Econ

000.00 to be used for this purpose.
Our part of this amount will depend
upon how much the County Commis
sioners give and to the extent of the
cooperation we will ei;tend in the
interest of fire prevention. It Wf"
proposed by Mr. Clark that Trunsy.*

amount the state would cover the
