Dit orium. The query was Quot resolved that the people of High Point should vote by popular suffrage a Bond Issue of a million dollars to be used to eliminate Grade Crossings within the City limits provided the railroads will assume three fourths of the the affirmative was upheld by miss Minnie Herman and Robert Overman. Although she and her colleague were Defeated miss Herman won the Honor of being the Best speaker of the occasion and will be awarded a Gold medal by Bob Wagger local jeweler. Henry Gurley was declared second Best speaker. Rip judges the judges of the contest were Paul e. Lindley of the High Point College faculty the Rev. George la. Brown pastor of the first methodist Church and t. Wingate an. Drews superintendent of City schools. Miss Billie Hiatt vice president of the senior class was chairman of the debate and miss Nell Jones Junior was Secretary. Miss Minnie Herman made the opening address for the affirmative. She presented a number of powerful Points Iii favor of elimination of the Grade Crossings in a Clear forceful manner her Rich voice carrying distinctly to every Corner of the auditorium a of Mercoal suicide miss Herman declared it was obvious that the query needed interpretation. She called the judges attention that the query did not read a fall Grade Crossings should be eliminated but that the Money should be used for the elimination of Grade Crossings. She said that meant Only those Crossings that endanger lives or impede Progress should be eliminated and to say that All Crossings should be eliminated would men the City would be robber of its arteries which would result in commercial suicide. She contended that Only those Crossings that present real traffic problems should be eliminated Cost about $3,, to the speaker declared that up to the present time there have been three suggestions presented the City Council for the elimination of the Grade Crossings within the City limits. The first would put the Southern railway around the City at a Cost of approximately $5,Gou too. The second would build underpasses at an estimated Cost of half a million. The third and the one she declared was advocated by the of. Formative is that the Southern tracks should be made lower than the City. She quoted City authorities As saying this would Cost approximately three million dollars. Miss Herman pointed out that the Grade Crossings constituted a real menace to the safety and Prosperity of the citizens of High Point. She reviewed the activities of the chamber of Commerce the mayor and prominent citizens in making an extensive study o situation the mayor she said has Only recently communicated with corporation in the entire South. Duty of Road he declared the negative would attempt to prove the following Points first that the City is unable to carry a $1,000,000 Bond Issue second that the taxpayers should not be forced to give a million dollars to the richest corporation in the South and third that the tracks of the main line of the Southern should be lowered but that it is the duty of the Southern to lower them. More than $1,000,000 he admitted some of the Grade Crossings should be eliminated but argued it would require an expenditure of More than $4,000,000. 1 the speaker said at present the valuation of the City is Only $32,-000,000, and the bonding limit is Only eight per cent of the total valuation which is for All things not classed under the head of a bonded with these figures he pointed out it May easily be seen that the City May be bonded for Only $2,585,359.29. He quoted r. L. Pickett City manager As saying the bonding limit for anything not classed a a necessity is eight per cent and at the present the City is bonded to the extent of $4,282,000. The City Council May vote Bonds for As High As they like for anything classed As a necessity but the City has voted to the limit the amount not classed As a necessity. Jack Fields assistant City manager he said declared under the head of bonded necessities came water and lights department sewerage system and Street department and did not include Public schools Public health Public buildings and the elimination of Grade Crossings. He declared that at the time the City Council was afraid to vate Bonds for a sewerage main in Mechanicsville for fear of ruining the credit of the City. Profit in Carolina or. Mcpherson asked that the judges Bear in mind that in 1924 the Southern railway made just one half of its profit in the state of North Carolina and that High Point is the third largest shipping Point on the Southern line. Robert Overman spoke next for the affirmative favouring eliminating the Grade Crossings stressing the Point that High Points growth has been and is dependent on the railroads and that without the roads the City would be nothing but a Hamlet. He pointed out that elimination of Grade Crossings would be a Mutual proposition that the Railroad would profit to some extent by the project but that the City would reap More benefits. People would object he declared there would come the cry that the poor people should not be taxed to improve the railroads property. Ile insisted that instead of the Bond Issue working a hardship on the people the improvement of the City a property would be an investment. The speaker pointed to the rapid growth of the City and said if the tracks were not lowered the citizens would impoverish themselves and the City. To trains Dally or. Overman referred to information obtained from the chamber of Commerce that 60 trains passed through the City daily. He placed 45 persons As a conservative estimate of the number of test sons held up by each train. It estimated the time lost by each individual As eight minutes which would give a total loss of 400 hours a Day. On the other hand he said the elimination of the Grade Crossings would make possible the read handling of the City a fast Gronim business.
