Whereas chapter forty-eight, Private Laws one thousand nine hundred and twenty, extra session, authorized an election in the Morganton Graded School District on a bond issue of seventy-five thousand dollars for the purpose of enlarging the graded school building for white children, the erection of a high school building for white children and the erection of a school building for the colored children of said district, together with the purchase of lots or sites for such buildings; and Whereas the cost of erecting of such buildings and the purchase of necessary lots therefor far exceeded the estimated costs thereof, and the funds on such bond issue have been exhausted and no school building for colored children has been erected, and the high school building for white children has no auditorium as contem- plated; and Whereas it will require some thirty-five thousand dollars to fully carry out and complete the objects mentioned as necessary in said chapter forty-eight as aforesaid: Now, therefore, The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
That the board of trustees of said school district. may in its discretion sell the old colored school building and site, either at public or private sale, when the new building for the colored school children is erected and ready for occupancy.
