. typhoid clinics to BE HELD AT TWO PLACES IN COUNTY To Safeguard Against Disease the State Is Conducting Clinics Here COUNTY TO BE MADE . 100 PER CENT IN HEALTH] Free Vaccination Against Ty phoid ? One or Two Cases Accepted as Challenge Typhoid clinics will be held at Pisgah Forest school this afternoon (Thursday) at 2 o'clock and also on the two succeeding Thursdays of the month; at the Rosman school Friday atternoon at 2 o'clock and on the two succeeding Fridays of the month, when large numbers of people are to be vaccinated against typhoid. The clinics are being held un der auspices of the State Health Department, with Dr. Charles L. Newland, county health officer, in charge of the vaccination work. John E. Floyd, District Sanitary Inspector, is in charge of gen eral arrangements in connection with the clinics. The vaccination program is being arranged simply as a precaution against possible spread of this dread and useless disease. , . There were one or two cases of i typhoid, it is said, at Rosman last year, and this year another case or | two developed proving to the author ities that some local conditions exist- 1 ed in that community which created j the typhoid germ, or there are "ty- 1 phoid carriers'' living in the com- j munity. The authorities have been j busily engaged during the week in j making examination of water supply j there, and have made such changes ; as would guarantee complete removal I of any cause of typhoid from this ! source. The only other thing neces- j sary, it is pointed out, is for citizens i to take the vaccine treatment, which | makes them immune to the germ eith- j er from water supply or from conta- 1 gion by coming in contact with a; "typhoid carrier." Pisgah Forest has been exception ally free from typhoid, and only the suspected presence in the community of a "typhoid carrier" causes the authorities to deem it necessary to give the vaccine treatment in that ( Continued on page eight) MASONIC REUNION TO BE HELD SOON Program being arranged by the committee in charge of the Masonic ? Home Coming on October 23, calls for an afternoon of splendid enter- j tainment, with a real dinner at 6 ' o'clock, and exemplification of the Master's Degree at the evening ses sion.

ANOTHER CHANGE IN | SCHOOL BOOKS SEEN This Time Ii Is the Old Arith me tic That Needs a New Bath ? 2 Plus 2 Not 4 Raleigh, Oct. 14 ? The State Board of Education has decided to call for | bids for supplying arithmetics, and presumably drawing and writing ':>ooks, for the public schools of the State for next year and following years, on the belief that contracts ? made now will be on a basis of such a low price that the State can ill af ford to postpone adoption of new books longer. Also, the new books will be more modern and up-to-date than the books which have been in use, one book 15 ] ' years, another for 10 years and j; which are regarded as antiquated by i the teaching profession. The board : last year postponed adoption, as rec- , ommended by the State Textbook ' Commission. The board, in calling for bids, reserves the right to reject . any or all bids, a move expected to ' bring the books to the lowest possible ! price. The meeting was held Saturday , mornifcg, attended by Governor Gard- , ner, Lieutenant Governor Fountain, Attorney General Brummitt, Auditor Baxter Durham, Treasurer Nathan OBerry, Secretary of State Hartness, and Superintendent of Public In struction A. T. Allen. By changing arithmetics now, the time can be re duced for changing geography and history books, which are more notice ably out-of-date, since much of the i ? geography of the earth has been < changed and much history has been i made since the World War, about ] which time the present ' books were s adopted. 1 SMATHERS OBTAINS | CHEVROLET AGENCY!: 1 1 Opening of the Auto Sales oom-ji pany, in the Jenkins building on Main i street, brings back to Brevard the'' Chevrolet agency, and the big show i rooms now display the Chevrolet ! sport coach, the standard coach, !

' Mr. Smathers is said by automo bile men to be thoroughly informed on things relating to the automobile J business, and his entry into the busi- > ness field here is an announcement I that will be most pleasing to his many ! friends who are plad that he is to | be in Brevard all the time. He is | active in civic affairs, a staunch be- 1 liever in the future of the town and jcoiinty and his influence in the civic and business life of the community will be a great addition. BUDGET FORMALLY ADOPTED BY BOARD | At Monday night's session of the | (board 'of Aldermen the budget eti-j I mate and tax rate recently presented! was formally adopted, setting the j town tax rate at $1.25 on the'hundred j dollars valuation.

C. Finds Itself In Raleigh, Oct. 14 ? Promise to give to the national administration the ' blame for the present economic ' stringency to the extent that "it is ' attributable to stupidity in national legislation and leadership" was made by J. C. B. Eringhaus, Elizabeth City, in his radio speech in Raleigh last week / in his campaign for the Democratic nomination for Gover nor. While Mr. Ehringhaus spoke pri marily regarding taxation, devoting his time to three of the planks in his platform, immediate revaluation of property for taxation, special pro vision for relief for the small farm and home owner, and economy, but economy with sanity, he gave promise that in due time he would take up national issues and speak of the part they have played and are playing in bringing about the economic-debacle of the country. "Though our" country today," he said, "is possessed of considerably more than half the world's entire supply of gold, and though our peo ple in industry and enterprise, as well equipped for .life's battles, can match any on the face of the globe, we fjnd ourselves in the midst of a depression which has played havoc with our economic structure, destroy ed many billions of our wealth, re duced both industry and agriculture to n condition of unparalleled pros tration and brought several million jobless men in the nation face to face with the winter's task of provid ing food and warmth for their de pendents. "That a part of this is due to world conditions I do not deny. "That much of it is attributable to stupidity in national legislation and leadership I shall not forget and in propoT^cime and place shall lay the burden at the feet of those re isponsibile therefor. j 'I mention it now," said Mr. I Ehringhaus, "merely that we may 'recall, as a background for our pres I ent thinking, that the problems in 'taxation now confronting the peo : pie of North Carolina are the crea tures, not the cause, of our present I distress." In introducing the subject of taxa tion, Mr. Ehringhaus said, "I venture to suggest that important as it is, the subject does not comprehend all thai challenges our attention in the pres ent situation or that calls for some' thing of our thougtful consideration.' SINGING AT GLADY SUNDAY. Announcement is made that the dis trict singing convention, to be hel< next Sunday afternoon at the Glad; B'-anch church is to be one of thi most largelv attended meetings eve i held in the uiouict The pubiic is in ivited.

West, pastor of the Brevard Methodist church, and the < ?ntire membership have expressed < ^reat appreciation to the Rev. G. T. 1 Bond, of West Asheville, for the ] splendid revival services conducted in 1 the local church last week. Rev. Mr. ( Bond preached twice daily throughout i ;he meeting, the morning services be- 1 ng-held at the Brevard Institute andjl the evening services in the up-town ? i :hurch. The earnest manner and elo- i :juent appeals of the visiting pastor j J made lasting impression upon the .< large congregations attending the < series of meetings. '< Members of other churches in the town were regular attendants at the 1 services, and expressed genuine joy < in the spirit of the meetings. The re- < vival is said to have meant a great deal to the community, and the citi- i sens now are turning their attention . to the coming revival to be held at 1, the Baptist church. ? < FOUR NEGROES HURT I IN AUTO ACCIDENT! i: Several negroes were seriously hurt i in an automobile accident on the Hen dersonville highway last Sunday, when a car driven by one of the col ored men collided with a car being driven by Tom Cox, of Henderson ville, in which members of Mr. Cox s family were riding.

Jones announced Monday night :hat the teachers would, however, 1 complete the day's work Friday, and ittend the evening session and Sat urday's meeting. Heretofore it has seen the policy to have half holiday n the school on Friday when district meetings were held, but owing to the Tact that the coming session fasts two 3ays, it was not deemed necessary to sacrifice any school work in the :ounty. The afternoon session on Priday will not be attended by local teachers, as schools will be kept in1 session until regular time Friday aft ernoon. At the association of Commercial teachers, Prof. J. B. Jones, county and city schools superintendent, will deliver an address. Prof. J. A.

Owen, famous Mars Hill preacher who is to conduct the meet ings, the announced revival at the Brevard Baptist church has been postponed until the Rev. Mr. Owen has recovered from his illness.

LICENSE STATIONS IN EVERY COUNTY, IS PUN OF BUREAU ? t Harris See# Great Convenience to Auto Owners In the New Plan SEVERAL STATIONS ARE ALREADY NAMED BY HIM Sales of Autos In State Larger Than One Year Ago, Fig ures Disclose Raleigh, Oct. 14 ? With the ultimate aim of having an automobile license plate station in every county in the State, both for the convenience of the owners of automobiles, as well as for increased revenues for the State, Director L. S. Harris, of the Motor Vehicle Bureau, is making plans for an increased number of stations for selling plates at the end of the year for 1932. A dozen permanent stations arc to be added to the 16 in operation last year, to remain open during the en tire year, and 23 stations, an increase over last year, will be open during the license plate selling period, from December 15 to February 15, Direc tor Harris said. Permanent stations will be added at Lenoir, North Wilkesboro, High Point, Reidsville, Rockingham, Ab erdeen, Fayetteville, Wilson, Green ville, Kinston, Weldon and at Way nesville or Canton, in addition to those which have been in operation and will be continued at Asheville, Statesville, Shelby, Gastonia, Char lotte, Concord, Salisbury, Greens boro, Burlington, Durham, Rocky Mount, Goldsboro, Wilmington, New Bfern, Elizabeth City and Winston Salem Temporary stations for the two months period will be established at 23 points, unless plans cannot be completed for banks at those points which can and will meet the require ments of State Treasurer Nathan O'Berry as State depositories.

I - , Brummitt Says He Wants None of Governor Max Gardner's Support r r t - Raleigh, Oct. 14 ? Attorney Gen eral Dennis G. Brummitt has said, in so many words, in two statements is-, sued the past week, that he wants j none of the support of the present administration, as headed in the ex-i ecutive, if and when he enters the J contest for the seat of that executive. 3 : The statements are two hefty blows _(at the wedge into the relationship ofj I Governor Gardner and Mr. Brum-, j I mitt, which has been cracking under , . ! the strain for many months. < | Mr. Brummitt's statements are - dignified, terse ahd to the point, but - show a feeling that has been foment s ing in the Brummitt breast for some time and has just come to the sur face. Mr. Brummitt charges Tyi C. Taylor, executive counsel for Gov ernor Gardner and formerly hi? private secretary, with getting out the propoganda that Mr. Brummitt will resign as Attorney General arhen he announces formally his can didacy for .Governor. That was one statement, to which Mr. Brummitt adds that he has never had any thought of resigning. The other is evidence of resent- 1 ment as being classed'.as a follower in the matter of the qnadriennial re valuation in the excerpt from the radio talk of .T. C. B. Ehringhau? announced candidate for Governor, ?last week. Mr. Ehringhaus express } ? ed pleasure that other candidates and prospective candidates have tak en a stand for revaluation of prop erty since he announced his platform. Mr. Brummitt's statement reported a conversation with Governor Gard ner in January, in which the Attor ney General was asked to approve- a measure to postpone revaluation two years, to which, Mr. Brummitt makes it plain that he could not subscribe Thus, he would have it known that he did not follow Mr. Ehringhaus, but was for continuing revaluation all along. His statement is precise, and he gives notice that more may be expected on his resigning while running for office business later. By his statement, Mr. Brummitt puts himself a step nearer formal announcement, but still leaves him self leavay to run or not to run Many believe that his candidacy de pends on whether or not Josephus Daniels gets into the r although there is intimation from the Brum mitt camp that his plans arc not con tingent upon the rtmning or not run ning of any man. Still there is Dan iels talk, but as yet, no action. Many who doubted any desire on his part to run, now believe he is giving it serious consideration, It may be that he is playing with it in order to bring one of the candidates nearer the Daniels point of view, peesibly Mr. Brummitt, probably not.
