FIRE DOES DAMAGE
AT COITRY CLUB
Roof of Club House Partly
Burned; Firemen Check
the Blaze
The timely arrival of firemen on the
-scone probably saved the club house
at the West Knd Country Club (mm
total destruction bv fire in mid-after
noon Thursday. Harold Mixon, con
tractor. wlu win; approaching; the
building, where he was going to makr
an estimate on repainting the build
ing. discovered the blaze and made
the alarm
The blaze originated in the pantry,
it was said, and worked up through
the ceiling into the attic and was
breaking through the roof in several
places when the firemen arrived. A
hole was burned in the ceiling over
the dance hall also t’sc of the boo: ler
tank on the motor truck, after a hole
hud been cut into the shingle roof,
was sufficient to control the blaze. but
firemen said had they been a few
minutes 'later in teaching the scene,
it. would have been a total loss.
W. IT. V 1 boning. secretary of the
club, said today the loss wa- e-dimat
ed at s2f>o, thnt it was fully covered
by ri utunce. and ‘he repairs would
be made immediately. He gave the
firemen credit for saving the club

COTTON STORAGE IS

4,200 Bales Threatened At

SPRINKLERS DO WORK

Moor and Works Upward
To Second
Approximately t.2‘>o hales of cotton
were threatened in a fire lust night
in the storage of the Henderson Bond
ed Warehouse in West Henderson, but
the blaze was quickly brought under
control when the caps on the sprink
lers melted and sprayed the fire until
it was extinguished.
F. L. Toeplenian, head of the com
pany. .-aid today the actual toss was
ten bales of cotton. with about 25
more damaged. The entire holdings in
the warehouse are insuied. and there
will he no loss on the cotton that was
burned. It. belonged to the Federal
government, which had it stoied
j there. None of th L dnnuiged cotton
was owned by any one in Henderson
l or Vance county, he said.
! Cotton it', the warehouse belongs to
'h«' government, to the North Caro
lina Cotton Growers Cooperative Asso
ciation an to numerous indi vidauls.
Mr Toeplenian said today the
! sprinkler system was what saved the
t utile wai chouse, and he was greatly
[ oiea.-ved witti Hi'- effectiveness of this
! f.re prevention equipment. He wag
i mure confident H an ever of the safety
of the storage.
The fire originated on the first floor
and worked through to the .second
story. H* ,: p that gathcird after the
blaze began quickly roiled the burn
ing bales to a window and tossed
them to the ground, and this and the
work of the sprinkler system prevent
ed greater damage. Fiiemcn respond

FURTHER REDUCTION
IN COTTON SOUGHT
Matthews, S. C . Dec. 8 (APi Tht
American Cotton Association has ap
peak'd to the governor of every Stall
tn the nation in which cotton is growr
to immediately issue a proclaatiar
pointing out the fact that the world’t
production of cotton for 1932 is the
mallest of any year since 1923," Wan.
namuker said. '
“That the suyrply of world's cotton
as of this date, is 5,000,000 bales les:
han ar the same date a year ago.
“That the sale of the manufacturer
goods is much in excess for a similai
period a year ago.
"And. that all landowners, farmers
bankers, merchams nncTevery loyal cl
izen are urged to use their finance:
md influence to prevent the sale of »
bale of cotton for less than ten cent
per pound and to encourage In ever
way humanly possible non-plamtirq
nf cotton for 1933, carrying the oot
ion that would be produced in normal
seasons while it can _b& bought foi
|25 per bale less than the actual cos)
of production a»d thus save the extra
expense of production and avoid thr
rivk of adverse weather and insects.

Yet it certainly is a tact that Uncle ,
turn's post-war debt conferences to
late have been pretty expensive to
him.
"Well, the tiuth is," admitted the
enatqr, "that 1 do know of what
ve're so fcatful. If we establish an

ment's claims against the European
nations and it occurred to me to in
quire.
*•‘lf the United States government
vould cut its claims down, as you
suggest, would you bankers consent
o a corresponding reduction in your
private claims?’
“ 'Ah.' he said, ’that would Ire prac
ically impossible: private claims are
oo numerous and widely scattered.’
"Which was true; it wouldn’t be a
iractical proposition."
Nevertheless
The creation of a new war debt
ommission would be good policy?
“I don* like the term 'commission,’
aid the senator. “It s been overwork
d. I don t like the term 'efficiency, ’
lther, for the same reason. Or 'co
iperation.’
“As to an ‘agency.’ t<* hear and
weigh our debtors’ stories- I can't
;onceive of any sound objection to its
;reation.”
And then take what we can get?
“No, no." exclaimed the senator.;
vtth strong emphasis and some im
patience.
“That implies a reduction.
"I’m saying that we ought to be
tble to trust ourselves to listen-- and
ifter that, unless good and sufficient
eas ons for it are given. Not grant
any reduction-’’
