vember 11
Fltuis tofythe annual observance of
Armistice Day here on November 11
were discussed and outlined at a
meeting of the .ioint committee of
Henderson Post, No, 60, of the Amer
ican Legion, and the Legion Auxiliary
held last night in the Legion club
rooms. The offer of the Auxiliary to
serve a dinner at the West End Coun
try Club in the evening, to be follow
ed by a aanee, was accepted by the
committee, and that procedure is to
be. carried through.
It is expected a speaker will he ob
tained for th*' occasion, but no one
has been announced as yet.
Attendance at the dinner and dance
will be free to members of both units
who have paid their dues for the year,
it was decided.
The fact that Armistice Day this
year falls on Saturday has created
something of a problem for the com
mittee to deal with, and the plan
decided upon was regarded as the
best, and mos f convenient for Legion
and Auxiliary members.
Members of the joint committee are:
For the Legion post, C. L. Carter,
post commander; Dr. H. A. Newell.
James W. Jenkins, D. P. McDuffee;
for the Auxiliary, Mrs. J. C. Gard

Several Offers »
Os School Sites
Already Sent In
While no formal request for bids
has been issued, several property sites
in various locations in the city have
already been tendered to the city
school board as prospective locations
for the new high school which is .to
be built with the aid of government
funds. The exact number .that have
been sent in has not been' learned; but
it is understood there are a number
of them.
The school board's idea was to have
these submitted in sealed offers for
consideration of an outside commit
tee, which would make a survey of
the local situation and recommend the
location for the new school.
Estimates of the cost of the work,
together with preliminary drawings
and specifications, are now in the
course of preparation.
Repeal Campaign
.Is Getting Close

also maintain they have obtained
much more outstanding candidates
as anti-repeal candidates in the va
rious counties than the repeal forces
have and that this is giving them a
big advantage.
*‘Thi3 repeal campaign is getting in
creasingly close and it would not sur
prise m: a bit to see the State vote
against repeal on November 7,” said
a prominent business man and po
litician from one of the larger Pied
mont counties who was here this week
“And I am saying thi& as an advo
cate of repeal. I have been for repeal
and still am. But present indications
are Lhat my county and most of the
surrounding counties are going to vote
against rc-peal. The repeal forces in
these counties we-re positively not able
to get, ,jtny outstanding men to be
candidate? for the r, State convention
while the anti-repeal ■ forces, have in
most cases secured outstanding men.
If the eastern ‘and .western counties
are organised the way the''Piedmont
counties are, the .State will go against
repeal. ’’ f
Others coming here from the middle
and western Piedmont counties say
that former Secretary of State James
A. Hartness, who is in charge of the
prohibition campaign in the Pied
mont and west, and who is a past mas
ter at political organization, has
these counties organized to the hilt
against repeal and is daily getting the
people worked up to a higher and
higher pitch against repeal. Hartness
learned his politics in the old Sim
mcns-Wat.ts school, was active in the
campaign of 1908 when the State first
went dry. and is regarded as one of
the ablest political strategists in th:-
State. There is no doubt he is going
to give the repeal forces a hard fight
in the Piedmont and west.
