BOOK STACKS PLEA •STUDIED BY BOARD ♦ _. Call For Equipment Present ed By Board Of Trustees Of The Library The city commissioners yesterday studied the proposal to purchase pew hooks stacks for the city library during the board’s weekly meeting pf record. At the conclusion of the discus Sion between the board of trustees of the library and the city commis sioners it appeared probable t h e stacks will be purchased, though there was nothing definite about the matter. City Attorney William B. Camp bell pointed out the city cannot le gaily expend funds received from taxes for purchasing the stacks, as the supreme court has held a li brary is not a necessary expense for the city. Commissioner of Finance W Louis l'isher pointed out the city cannot at this time appropriate funds from monies received from sources other than taxes for the stacks since there is no available money in the treasury. After considerable discussion about ways and means by which the . I stacks might be purchased, Mayor Tom Cooper told the members of the board, “jpe should either turn these people down flat or make I them a definite promise to help them.” It was suggested by Commission er of public Works J. E- E. Wade that the city reject all bids it has received on the stacks. Then, he suggested, the city could advance to the library board all funds which will be due it in the remainder of the fiscal year. The library board could then, he said, agree with dis tributors of the stacks to purchase them, using funds from this year’s appropriation to make an initial payment. In addition, he said, the city commissioners could agree to ‘ ser iously and sincerely consider the inclusion of an additional $1,000 ap propriation for the library in the next fiscal year and if the count! would do likewise the library board would have sufficient funds to bu! the stacks.” There was much talk of “conside ration” of the appropriation in the next fiscal year and the word con sideration” came in for two unmade but indicated definitions. Wade and Cooper used the term in the sense of a tacit promise to appropriate the money if the county will do likewise. Fisher insisted on using the word consideration to mean just what it says, that the board would think about the appropriation. The board of trustees also com r1 lined about the dirtiness of the library floor and rged that a coat of paint be applied to it. No action was taken on the request. Should the county refuse to make the requested additional $1,000 ap propriation for the library in its next year’s budget, Wade pointed out, it would be possible for the city to appropriate an additional $1, 000 again the year following. However, he pointed out, the pre sent city commissioners cannot bind the city to that action as their term ot office will expire prior to that time.

Erwin, superintendent of pub lic instruction, and two congression al candidates paid filing fees today to the state board of elections. Erwin paid $60 to run for reelec tion.

All three are democrats. No opposition has filed either to Erwin or Weaver. Two other demo crats have filed in the sixth, Oscar Barker of Durham and Carl T. Dur ham of Chapel Hill, incumbent.

J. 0. CARR Atty . 1 Change Winter-killed oil— and here’s why to change to OIL-PLATING Slush in the gutter is scarcely thinner and dirtier than Winter oil over-staying in your engine. Drain now, warns your judgment— and Car Manual. But get more than a re-filled crankcase. Get cylinders, rings, bearings, and other precious parts oil-plated by making sure that you change to Conoco Germ Proc essed oil—patented. Your Mileage Merchant puts it in at an ordi nary price, in the ordinary way. But how ex traordinary is the man-made extra substance in the Conoco formula, that sets Germ Processed oil apart. For here is oil whose strong “power of attraction” makes engine parts draw glossy oil-plating all over themselves and keep holding it close—as drain-proof as plating on hub caps. Not for one instant can oil-plating go drain ing “down home” to the crankcase. Though you’re speeding the limit or parking long hours, oil-plating is always faithfully maintained. All in addition to the strong oil-film of Germ Processed oil, this drain-proof oil-plating helps to keep down wear. And that’s how to keep your engine nearest to the oil economy of its youth. Your correct Germ Processed oil for Spring, at Your Mileage Merchant’s Conoco station today, will give you the change to an oil-plated engine.
