COMMUNITY HOUSE
NEARS COMPLETION
Middleburg Structure One
of Most Attractive Things
In County
’l'd*' handsome new Middleburg
Community House, under construction
off and on for more than a year, is
now nearing completion, and an in
spection of it Wednesday afternoon
revealed the place as a thing of un
usual beauty and attractiveness, and
an asset that any community could
well afford to be proud of. There is
nothing like it in Henderson, nor any
where else in Vance county, or any
where in this section, so far as is
known.
The building is largely of stone and
log const!uction. Its rustic appear
ance, both inside n.nd out. serves to
add to its great beauty. It Is inviting
throughout, and the more one ex
plores the generous provisions for all
kinds rural community activities the
more the idea grips and the deeper
the impression it makes.
There are some nine or ten rooms
in addition to the large auditorium
or assembly hall, with Its adequate
stage and balcony. It will seat several
hundred. In the basement, with a ce
ment floor, is the kitchen and the
dining room, with ample storage fa
cilities there. Small rooms for l-H
club and home demonstration work
meetings have been provided on the
top floor, on the balcony level, and
verandas on two sides serve to in
crease the convenience and delight of
the arrangements.
The material that has gone into
the building has been donated in large |
measure by residents and property ,
owners of the Middleburg vicinity.
That includes the stone, some of it
in many colors of strata, and the logs,
most of them placed in their rustic
condition and trimmed only to a de
gree necessary to make fits. The labor
has been financed through govern
ment relief funds.
The finishing touches are being
placed and a formal opening is plan
ned in the next few weeks. An ex
ploration of the premises indicates
the very great reality and apprecia
tion of the place as one around which
the activities of this fine rural com-I
niunity will center. It makes one cn- |
vious of the .rood folks of Middleburg
and the weatlh of rural contacts and
associations that will I c made pos
sible. •

Committee of Commission
ers Understood To Be
Investigating Matter
A committee of the Vance Board of
County Commissioners is investigating
the desirability of appointment of a
prosecuting attorney for the record
er’s court of the county, it was learn
ed today, but whether the board con
templates any decision in the mat
ter at its monthly meeting next Mon
day could not be ascertained.
A "committee from the bar associa
tion appeared before the board at. a
recent meeting and urged that a pro
secutor be named for the county
court.
The matter was discussed and
agitated to some extent two years ago
during the 1933 General Assembly.
There was talk at that time of the
introduction and passage of a bill au
thorizing such an appointment, ft is
said now that there is ample authority
for the commissioners themselves to
act without any specific authority
from the legislature as applying to
this county.
Whatever may be the feeling of in
dividuals as to the proposal, so far
as has been learned, very little op
position to it has been formally voiced
at meetings of the commissioners.

Reynolds
Proposes
Work Bill
Washington. Feb. 28.—(Alb—A pus- !
Bible b asis for compromise between
•he Senate and President Roosevelt
I on the prevailing wage controversy in
! hr $4,880,000,000 work-relief program
was offered today by Senator Rev- ,
nolds. Democrat. North Carolina, whe
| proposed to permit the executive to
depart from paying prevailing wages
if he found this course “detrimental.”
\ Reynolds was one of those who
bolted the administration to support
the McCarran prevailing wage amend
i meat.
He drafted an amendment to the
McCarran proposal providing that if
the President found the payment of
the prevailing wage in any locality
“subversive of the maintenance or re
r.ovcry of priatev industry or other
wise detrimental thereto." he could
fix the wages within his own discre
tion in that locality.
As Reynolds made known his plan,
some administration quarters looked
for a “break” soon in the relief dead
j lock.

tenant - Governor “Sandy” Gra
ham had turned the gavel over to
him. The bill being voted upon
was a local measure and the sole
> "aye” was cast by its introducer.
There were, of course, no “noes.”
