Some agitation has been aroused in favor of removal of a lot of so ca'lled unsightly signn. displayed in front of 'business - houses, and the possibility was seen today that an or dinance of’ some kind may be put through the' City Council relating to this practice on Garnett street. Such regulations, it appeared, if enacted, would not relate to costly and attrac tive electric signs, but many that bang low. and extend far out over t'ie sidewlak would be banned. It was rec riled today that n city ordinance limits signs to an exten sion of only three feet from the building out of the. sidewalk, and in dications were that sentiment.

It was said that the next step now is for the bond attorneys in New York to proceed to write the forms and have the actual bonds printed ready for delivery. The attorneys are also to prepare forms for advertising the bonds for sale before the Local Government Commission in Raleigh, when the PWA will buy them as a matter of course. That is a formal procedure. That. is expected to be done imihediately.

Os that number, 1,- 84 persons completed the three treat ment's of anti-typhoid serum, of that number, 1,417 were white and 417 colored people.
