Above right, this is a photo taken in the 1950s of the Centerville armory located at North 10th and West Franklin streets. The 52x128 foot armory was completed in 1950. In 1953 plans were developed to add two wings to the existing building, both measuring 23x128 feet, which are clearly evident on the east and west side of the building.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
