Tie Resulted nounced for This Month. ELEVEN PLAYERS QUALIFY Ernest L. Allen, Secretary of the Aiken Chamber of Commerce, was notified Monday evening by Senator Jame* F. Brynes that at a conference held on Monday arith the Director of the Budget 'and other official® he war assured that the committee in charge of Federal Public Works Projects will on today approve an appropriation for the Aiken Federal Court House in the sum of $118,000. While it is thought that this amount will be sufficient to build a most attractive Federal building in Aiken the committee indicated that in view of the increased cost of materals and labor that they would approve an additional amount for the Aiken building if the same appeared to be necessary. This news from Washington will be very gratifying to the people of Aiken and the Chamber of Commerce and its efficient Secretary are to be congratulated in finally securing the Aiken Federal Court Building. The building of course will be located on the lot purchased by the government adjoining the Aiken Presyterian Church and formerly known as the Wyman property. The lot was paid for by the government over a year ago and architects employed to prepare plans for the building. However, shortly after-Mr. Roosevelt was inaugurated he deemed it wise to switch the funds appropriated by the Congress for Federal Buildings to the C. C. C. camps in order to immediately furnish employment to a great mass of young men then unemployed. In January $950,000,000 was appropriated by the Congress to carry on ('WA work and to build a number of federal buildings throughout the United States. A committee wa Jhen appointed in Washington to take up all of the federal building projects and select those that were most worthwhile. Since the appointment of this committee Senator Byrri* - ha- repeatedly urged the committee to approve the Aiken project, calling to their attention the fact that the site had been purchased and architects employed and other expcn-e incurred by the government. The Senator also stressed the very great need for the Aiken Federal Court House. Th* I' mieral < >u i' Build i e ba been an objective of the Chamber of Commerce for the past five yeas a. The need was first brought to the attention of the Board of Directors by Mr. Ernest L. Allen, Secretary about 1926 through th** co-operation of Congressman Hare, then the Representative of th* Se* nd District, tho court building was recommend ed by th** Judicial Department later and in 1930 when it wa- planned by the Federal government to construct a number of federal building-th** Treasury Department alloted $190,00 for tin Aiken building, lbs allotment v.u- made howevei after a committee from Aiken togethi r with Congressman Hare had conferred with the various member- of the Inter Departmental Building Committee in Wa hington. It is believed by those who are familiar with the project that had this committee not gone to Washington and actively pushed the matter at that time that Die court house would never have be* n approved.
