Board Plans ? To Move
Into Building Latter
Part Of Next Week
Formal opening of Hertford's new
municipal building has been tentative
ly set for September 29 and 30, it
was announced following a meeting
of the Town Board last Monday night'
Plans call for open house to be held
at the building on Monday and Tues
day nights, with officials of the town
on hand to receive individuals attend
ing the opening and showing them
around the building.
1 In addition to the present members
of the town's official family, former
Commissioners iB. C. Berry and M. J.
Gregory, who were members of the
Board during the time the building
was originally planned, will also be in
the receiving line.
Present : plans call for the new
building to be occupied the latter part
of next week. 'Workmen are now
putting on the finishing touches to the
building, completing .the lighting
equipment, installation of furniture
and fixtures and landscaping the
The new building, an impressive
looking Town Hall, is located on
Grubb Street, just, west of Church
Street. It contains a large office for
the clerk of. the town, a public and
private office for the police depart
ment and an oversized room for Board
meetings. Sufficient space is pro
vided in the Board room for most
any size delegation which might de
sire to appear before the Board for
presentation of petitions or other mat
ters in the interest of the town.
Total cst of the building will run
approximately $25,000, according to
figures reported at the Board meet
ing on Monday night. Slightly more
than $17,000 has already been paid to
ward the construction, and current
bills on the construction run about
$5,000 according to W. G. Newby, who
gave the report to the Town Commis
sioners. The overall figures include
all constructions and the installation
of heating facilities and furnishings.
With less than eight weeks remain
ing before the national elections on
November 4, campaign managers for
both the Democratic and Republican
parties are carefully mapping strat
egy for their candidates. Governor
Stevenson and .General Eisenhower
are expected to "steam up" their cam
paigning for the Presidency as each
day goes by. Polls, which have been
conducted in connection with the elec
tion, reveal .the race to be very close.
Activity on the Korean warfront
has been stepped Up in recent days
with the Communist ground troops
raiding UN positions and the UN
forces carrying out more air strikes
against the Red's supply lines and de
pots. Meanwhile the truce talks con
tinue but reports state no progress ia
being made toward an armistice.
Baseball's World Series will open
October 1, according to an announce
ment made this .week. Both the Ameri
can and National Leagues have a
"neck and neck" race for the league
titles, and there appears a possibility
a play-off may be necessary to de
cide the participants in the big series.
Cleveland and the New York Yan
kees are tops in the American League
while New York Giants and Brooklyn
are leaders in the National League.
Forty two cent cotton may be the
situation by next May 1, according to
a prediction made this week by M. G.
Mann, general manager of the N. C.
Cotton Growers Cooperative, who urg- '
ed farmers .to hold their cotton for
the higher prices next spring.
