Much interest was shown in the
establishment of a public health unit
for Madison when Miss Elizabeth
Lovall, public health educator from
the North Carolina Health depart
ment spoke to a large group at the
courthbuse" Frftlay afternoon. Miss
Lovall first showed a movie present
ing the.nesd of health improvements,
then told the group how the county
could have -a health department and
of the different phase of work car
rad on by such a departmet.
Miss Lovall stated that Madison
County is one of only four counties
in the state without a health .depart
ment. She suggested that the county
go in with one of the adjoining coun
ties in establishing a health unit, as
the county would be unable to secure
full time health officer at this time.
If Madison joined with another coun
ty, besides having a part-time health
"officer, she would have two public
. health nones, one sanitarian, and one ',
xlerk who would live in the county
