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 ing him. BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR MISS SARA HALL A charming birthday party was given on Febuary 18th in honor of the 7th birthday of Miss Sara Hall at her home here. The George Washington holiday colors were used decorating the house and in the favors. The children were each presented a blue three-cornored soldier hat with red, white and blue tassels. Vanilla ice cream with cherries and a Lady Baltimore birthday cake were served. Those present were seven of the young hostess' schoolmates. HIGHLANDS MUSEUM BUYS PROPERTY ON MAIN STREET The Highlands Museum and Lab pratory' Association bought this week the Main street property of Mr. Julius E. E. Berndt of Balti more. The property consists of about an acre of land, 215 feet front, between the property of Mr. Porter Pierson and Mr. J. C. 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.
