Such a hospital is under construction at the present time in Brevard. Sufficient funds have not yet been raised to complete the building and furnish it with the necessary medical equipment and furniture. The people of Brevard have just completed, a drive and are still raising funds. While this is going on, upon my request, all those employed by Ecusta, Champagne and Endless^Belt have not been approached, as again we want to make this a “com pany” affair. 'Whatever you give this time, same as the last, Ecusta, Cham pagne and Endless Belt Corporations AVILL MATCH DOLLiAR FOR DOLLAR. A plan has been worked out whereby our employees can con tribute in small amounts over a period of time, which will make it easy for them to do their share and, at the ssutne time, render a very noble service to all the citizens of Transylvania County. It is my hope and ambition that, without exception, each and every employee of the companies, of which I have the honor to be President, will donate at least one hour’s pay per week, for a period of twelve weeks, to this fund. If this can be accomplish ed, the employees of our various corporations, jointly, should be able to accumulate an amount in the neighborhood of $10,000^ which the corporations are willing to match, so that from the three corporations we hope to be able to contribute to this hospital under construction a total of not less than $20,000. The benefits of a hospital will come to all of you. A hoyital is needed in times of distress, and while I hope that none of you will have to be patients in this hospital, it is necessary that the hospital be ready for you when the time comes. This does not only apply to those who live in Pisph Forest and Brevard, but to all employees—no matter where their homes happen to be—because in an emergency they will have to be brought to a hospital where m^em sery.ce and attention is immediately available. This you will find in e new ospi a under construction. We want to make this a whirl-wind campaign which ought to be completed in a week’s time, and I hope, as stated ® that all of you will, without exception, enter into the worK which we have undertaken. The buildings are well advanced in construction, and we want to bring them under cover before the cold weather sets in. Con- sf^nii>ntlv. we do not have much time to waste. In advance, I thank all of you for your whole-hearted coop eration in this noble enterprise. Sincerely yours, HARRY H. STRAUS, President. The empolyees of the vari ous industries in Transylvania county will be greatly benefit- ted by the new hospital which is being erected. Modern hos pital facilities will be available at home and it will not be neces sary to travel thirty or forty miles for these facilities. All of the employees and most of the families 01 the employees of the companies belong to the Hos pital Saving Association and have a form of insurance which will cover ordinary hospital bills. When the new hospital is completed it will mean modem hospital facilities will be avail able for those who need hos pitalization. Everyone will feel much more secure if he knows that he has hospitalization in surance and that a modern, well equipped hospital is avail able within a few minutes. Every employee should real ize the benefit of the hospital to them and their families and contribute toward this worthy cause. BREVARD CITIZEN DRIVE IS SUCCESS During the past few months, two teams of staunch Brevard supporters, captained by Jerry Jerome and Harry Sellers, have received subscriptions totaling $5,000. Several individuals were known to have given as much as $500.00. This group was led by such men as Mr. Frank D. Clement, Mr. Verne Clement, Dr. C. L. Newland, Mr. W. M. Schwarz and Mr. Walter V. Landeck. _ The subscription total was given a great boost when the old equipment was found to be worth over $2,000.00 in trade- in for new equipment. Several organizations within Brevard have obligated them selves to raise money for fur ther hospital equipment. Mr. Jerome and Mr. Sellers should be commended for their excellent work.
