The dog dividend Is approximately four rid a half times the revenue expected from Port Terminal levy ignd for operation of the hospital, and is only $6,358 less than the "total amount of tax revenue slated to go into deot service for the leurrent fiscal year. if' Comparing the $27,000 with total amount of taxes expected 'fa be collected during 1948-49, the race track revenue is equal to lllightly more than 31 per cent of the anticipated tax Income, and fyn comparison with the total revenue expected, during the current (fiscal year, $111,041, the $27,000 equals about one-fourth of this J figure. Since there was no way to estimate the amount of money Isvhich would be the town's share of the race track take, no pro Vision was made for it in the 1948 49 budget which appeared in ;THE NEWS-TIMES ill July and from which the above figures fire taken. It was known at the time the budget was drawn up, however, that the town's share of race track revenue would be j)ut aside as a special street-paving fund. ' ' Morehcad City right now is in, the uncomfortable position of , being looked upon enviously by towns or cities which do not have ,$ similar source of irfcome. Cities outside Carteret county will have to paddle their own -canoe in this respect, but as for us, improvement of one section the county is improvement of the whole. v. Tire Prevention Campaigns Pay Oil ' Well-planned fire prevention campaigns do pay dividends. ' Proof of this fact is shown by a report from the United State"! Navy's Bureau of Yards and Docks. Through a nation-wide fire prevention campaiun, the bureau, which is responsible for maintenance of, Navy shore installations, was able to reduce fire damages by marc than a million and a ; half dollars during 1948. ... J Fire losses for the first quarter of this year wore $756,873, Jdrop of nearly a million and a half dollars from losses of $2, ,050 in the same period last year, the bureau reports. The 'iber of fires dropped from 26 to 17, and average loss per fire pped from $89,387. in the first quarter of 1947 to $44,522 in f first quarter of 1948. I Fire Prevention Week ends tomorrow, but fires caused by felessness will continuo as long as we' continue to tolerate boding places of fire, such as heaps of trash and oily rags, tum edown buildings, and buildings without adequate number of tat last cigarette in bed or as long as we neglect to put out the e in bed and as long as we neglect to put out the glowing ashes ) a campfiro. ImDortant nlaces these davs to Dractice fire Dreventlon are ScKocs.

Handbooks on school fire prevention can be had for the ask- jig by writing the National Fire Protection) Association, 6Q Bat- itrymarch street, Boston, Mass. Teacher should Impress upon children the importance of obeying all rules during fire drills Ind the importance of following orders, without panic, in. case lite should break out. Most of us know the usual causes of most fires ... yet we continue our careless ways. We're gamblers, with life and prop erty at stake.
