SAM CRESWELL KILLS
6344 POUND HOG
HIGHLANDS, N. G The fact
that Mr. Sam Creswell is a star
among pig raisers (no pun, intend
ed) came to light when he recently
killed his '18 months old pig which
weighed 634 4 pounds dressed.' The
pig was of Poland-China-Duroc
breed, and its weight at 18 months
was far above the average. Mr.
Creswell bought the pig when it
was six weeks old and weighed 40
pounds, and fed it almost entirely
on corn,' and occasionally on rice
meal. As far as we know this is
quite the largest pig killed here, at
least in recent years, and Mr. Cres
well may justly be proud of rais

To the Members of the Bryant Burial Associa
tion and the General Public:
In view of the fact that a bill has been introduced in the
General Assembly to regulate burial associations in Macon
county 'and providing that in the event of the death of a mem-,
ber the -benefit shall be paid in cash or to any undertaker whom
it is seen fit to call, we desire to make the following explana
tion to the members of the Bryant Burial Association and to
the general public:
1. A burial association is not an insurance company, though it
is bonded and backed by the Insurance Commission of the state.
2. A burial association is conducted for the sole purpose of
providing a decent funeral for its members at the lowest rate
passible. The reason that our rates are so much lower than
other insurance . is because it is ' a non-profit organization. The
undertaker sponsoring the association furnishes an office, rent'
free, and furnishes all the office force at very small cost. We
,work in the association from one to five people at all times, and
so far have taken from the treasury only $25.00 per month for
the secretary. If we employed outside help it would cost us at
.least $1,500 per year for salaries alone, not counting rent, equip
ment, bonds, stationery, stamps and the many other expenses
necessary to conduct the business.
3. A burial association is intended to help everyone who be
longs to it, and we had hoped that it would never ie mixed .up"
in politics, because if there is anything in the world that is
sacred to us it is the undertaking work that we do, or anything
that pertains) to the profession, and if we did not honestly be
lieve that the burial association was a good thing for the people
of Macon county, we would turn it over to some one else today.
4. The only way that a burial association can operate with the
present rate is FOR THE SPONSORING UNDERTAKER TO
SERVICE ITS MEMBERS. If a law should pass forcing us to
pay off our members in cash it would INCREASE THE DUES
TWO AND ONE-HALF TIMES. .
5. If this proposed law was in effect it would make it impos
sible for the association in Macon county to compete with as-,
sociations in other counties and would take all of the undertak
ing business out of, town.
We do not believe that Mr. Patton has gone into the matter
very thoroughly, as we are" sure he has the welfare of the people
of Macon county at heart and would like to do something to
help the masses. If it were only the sponsoring undertaker who
was hurt it would be of less importance, but it is affecting
every member of the Bryant Burial Association, and the number
is almost (3,000." We figure that in the first year, if the proposed
law is enacted, it would increase the amount paid into the as
sociation from $1,896.20 in 1936 to $4,740.50 in 1937, an extra cost
to the peopleyjf Macon county of $2,844.30.
At our present rate it would take any one under 30 years of
age 250 years to pay in $100, and to double the assessment it
would take 125 years to pay in $100. We know that in time it
will take more than four assessments to ran the association, but
we believe that we will be able to r,un it on an average of
eight assessments, and even at that rate it is the very lowest
funeral benefit insurance in force.
We have thousands of members who, if a death occurred in
the home, would not be able to buy a $15 casket and many
would, perhaps, have to call upon the county for , help. And
every time the county pays out money it affects every taxpayer.
We would appreciate it if a lot of you good people of Macon
county would write Mr. Patton and explain just how a bill like
he has introduced would affect us all, and we feel sure that he
will do the right ..thing about it. '
