Strong Article By Leading Wo

The everlasting candidates! Don't j
they make you sick? All ready the i
mails are being flooded with letters
f r o m would-be nominees, begging
folks to support them, just like we
didn't have all we can or ever could
do to support ourselves.
Honestly, we believe politics are
the ruination of our county and
churches. Politics have such hold
on the majority of the folks and
elections coming so closely to each
other ? there's no breathing space
left. Politics make neighbors fall
out, church members disagree. Why
some of our folks just won't pay any
thing towards the support of the
church. Stewards and deacons of
churches won't speak decently to each,
other just because they don't vote
alike. Sunday School students quit
Sunday School and church members
quit going to church because the
preacher or Sunday School superin
tendent doesn't vote like they do or
Superintendents and teachers resign
because all their Sunday teachers and
pupils don't vote just like they do.
It's a shame, but it's just like that.
We wish both parties in this coun
ty would get together and throw poli
tics so far they'd never be heard of
again and pick our good, honest, sen
sible men from both political parties.

half the ticket, men from the other

fighting, back biting, buying, selling, i

recently made, which was thoroughly
discussed by Rev. Paul Hartsell, of i
the Brevard Baptist church, last Sun- J

Wednesday night prayer meetings
of the town in all the churches have

town, and the average church attend

Church leaders look upon this con

Rev. Mr. Hartsell declared from the

$1.25, INDICATED IN

Board Brought Tax Rate
Down Eleven Cents
CUT TO VERY QUICK
Town Tax Rate Reduction Ad
ded to County's Reduction
Is Very Encouraging
Brevard'.s budget estimate, as pre
I pared by the clerk, H. H. Patton,
I provides for a town tax rate of $1.25
on the hundred dollars valuation, this
being a reduction of 11 cents from
the tax rate of last year. This esti
mate is arrived at after carefyi prun
ing of every possible operating ex
pense, yet with inclusion of deficits
in past years which had to be includ
ed in this year's budget. Town of
ficials assert that the rate could have
been reduced still more had it not
been for deficits in recent years.
Under practically every heading
this year's budget estimate is lower
than the amounts included in last
year's budgets, insofar as operating
expenses are concerned, showing that
the town authorities have pruned
every expenditure where it was pos
sible to do so. In the water depart
ment this year's budget estimate of
expenditure is 51,540.17 against $1,
609.29 last year. The sewer departs
ment's estimate for this year is $718.
15 as against $1,257.79 last year.
Streets and sidewalks are given an
estimated item this year of $2,932.37
as against $3,641.30 spent last year.
The police department is allowed $2.
380.00 this year as against $2,905.76
last year. Salaries for mayor and
town officials this year amounts to
$2,590 as against $3,201.95 last year.
The fire department is given $851 as
agaipst $1,090.60 last year. Lights,
this year, $4,906.31 as against $4,
907.07. (Of this amount in this year's
budget for lights, $1,697.77 is for
deficit of last year, but had to be in
