TO LIST BABIES
Gets Slow Response
RALEIGH, Feb. 20-Macon coun
ty parents are starting their re
ports to Washington of the births
of children born in the county
during the oast 12 months. Cards
mailed during the first two weeks!
of the "Register Your Baby cam
paign show that 43 children have
been properly registered.
This is compared with 374 chil
dren which were recorded as hav
ing been born in this county dur
ing the year 1933, as shown in the
files of the Bureau of Vital Sta
tistics of the State Board of Health
in Raleigh. Parents are urged by
Dr. John H. Hamilton, director of
the Bureau, to send in these cards
as early as possible.
North Carolina had 75,238 births
properly recorded in 1933, and in
complete figures show that? 79,350
births had been recorded for 1934,
by which Dr. Hamilton estimates
that enough more will be added
to make the number of births in
the State last year, 80,000, or more.
With almost a 5,000 increase in
births in 1934 over those in 1933,
as shown by the records, it is be
lieved that North Carolina has the
chance of again taking er place at
the head of the list in birth rate,
a position held for many years, but
from which she was dislodged last
year by New Mexico, and tied with
Utah for second place.
Complete' recording of births is
being urged in the State by the
U. S. Bureau of the Census, the
State Board of Health and the
State Emergency Relief Administration.
Hoar Tax not New.
Old Tax Receipt Shows
The agricultural experts at
Washington might have prided
themselves on a new discovery
when they hit upon the idea of a
hog tax in - evolving the corn-hog
reduction plan. But the fact is a
slaughtered hog tax was levied
many years ago by the Confeder
ate States, though for a different
purpose, that of raising revenue in
stead of reducing production. Lee
Leach, Franklin hardware merchant,
has in his possession a receipt is
sued on Sept. 29, 1864, to his late
father-in-law, Hugh Rogers, who
lived near CulloWhee, for "270 and
no cents, Confederate tax on
slaughtered hogs for 1863."
