MEMORIAL BUILDING FREE
Not a cent of indebtedness rests

which was dedicated Saturday dur
ing the Armistice Day exercises, ac
cording to an announcement made
by Miss Lucy Blythe Simms, chair
man of the Memorial Building
Fund. When the building was
turned over to the trustees it was
with the understanding that all in
debtedness had been officially set
tled. For many months the fund com
mittee was undecided whether to
erect a monument in the public
square or a memorial building to
Bourbon county's former service
men. The building will also be used
as a community center. At a meet

committee was appointed to equip
and furnish a ladies' rest room for
the Community House.
