Loss of property because of fire was nearly $400 less during the past year than the previous year, according to Lawrence L. Kerley, chief of the local fire department The fire department has two trucks, one purchased by Hazel wood, and operated by the Waynes ville department under a special agreement between the two com munities, and all other fire fight ing equipment considered neces sary for a community of this size. The town co-operates with prop erty owners in hauling off trash, garbage and other fire hazards on a regular schedule of trucks. Close inspection is made of all the pri vate and public buildings in this area. In accounting for the improve ment along these lines Mr. Kerley stated that people generally speak ing are taking more precautions about their property, and are more careful than they have ever been in keeping their premises clear of rubbish. From October 1, 1940 to October 1, 1941 the local city fire depart ment received 45 calls, 34 of which were from the town of Waynes ville. Eleven of these, including 8 from Hazelwood, were from out side the city limit. The cost Of operating the trucks, counting wear, upkeep of the equipment.and gas amounted to $1,756 during the past year. The total cost for firemen amounted to $308 for inside fires and $143 for fires outside the city limits. This does not include the salary paid the fire chief. . "' -,' KThe damage to property in the city limits last year totaled $1,880, accqrdingt0 Chief Kerley. . . Personnel of the fire department is as follows: Lawrence L.'

Shubert, comes to the Auditorium, Asheville, one performance only Saturday, Oct. 18, with Everett Marshall singing the role of the famous composer. It is 20 years since "Blossom Time" had its first performance on Broadway, and during the intervening years, the operetta has enjoyed a success un paralleled in the annals of the American stage. The charm and simplicity of the love story, the sheer verve of its music, the gay humor and the bitter-sweet poig nancy of a life devoted to a single end, assured it of overwhelming popular approval from the very be ginning. So great was the demand to see it in the early days that a second Company was installed on Broad way. Never before or since has New York been treated to the spectacle of the same musical pro duction playing in theaters facing each other on the same street, . V The original presentation of "Blossom Time" remained on Broadway for almost two years, while eight or nine road companies were touring the key cities. Since then, the operetta has returned to New York at least seven times for additional long runs, and repeat performances have been offered in every city where a theater was available. Its audience seems as inexhaustible as its appeal. The curtain goes up on this per formance at 8:30 p. m. sharp. Mail orders for tickets now being received.
