Announces N e w Addition
and Nurses Home For
y.-" ' " ;;;;Im;. "
Since Dr. Furman Angel opened his
surgical hospital here five years . ago
he has already built two fine addi
tions to this institution. He now an
nounces that "he will build another
large addition next spring. The an
nouncement states that the third ad
dition will bring the total, bed capacity
of his hospital to 150 beds, thus mak
ing Angel Brothers' hospital the larg
est purely surgical hospital in the
state and one of the largest in the
South. Dr. Angel's hospital at first
consisted of the Cope Elias old build
ing on Riverside street facing Lake
Emory. He now proposes to raze this
building and place the new addition on
this site. A nurses new home will
also be constructed. It is estimated
that this home and the new addition
will require an expenditure of more
than one hundred thousand dollars.
Dr. Angel expects to .start work on
his new buildings as soon as weather
will permit next spring.
Dr. Angel's brother, Dr. Edgar
Angel, graduated last June at the Jef
ferson Medical College in Philadel
phia with first honors. He is now an
interne at the hospital connected with
this college. On the completion of
his interneship Dr.. Edgar Angel will
return to Franklin to enter partner
ship with his brother. While at Jet-
Experts Have Begun Soil
Survey of County Much
Valuable Data to Be In
cluded In Map. v
Through the efforts of the county
agen and at no cost to the tax pay
ers the United States Bureau of
Chemistry and Soils, in co-operation
with the N. C. State Department of
Agriculture, has begun a soil survey
of Macon county. Mr. R. E. Dever
eux, representative from the Bureau
of Chemistry and Soils, is at this
time in the field for that purpose and
will be joined by Mr. W. A. Davis of
the state department the latter part of
this month. -
The soil survey consists ' of a de
tailed inventory of the soil resources
of the county. A close examination
of the soil is made in the field
through the aid of a forty-two inch
soil auger and the soils classified ac
cording to color, texture and origin.
The location and extent of the dif
ferent soils are shown on a map made
on a standard scale one inch to the
mile. In addition to the soils this
map shows all important physical
features such as reads (primaray and
secondary), railroads, towns, houses,
churches, school houses, drainage, etc.
Upon the completion of the soil
survey a report is written covering the
county and its soils. This report
contains a description of the county,
its climate and rainfall, a brief his
tory of the county, its agriculture
and soils, and a detailed description
of the different soils found, giviru,
recommendations for increasing and
conserving their fertility and crops to
which the soils are best adapted.
Samples of all the different soils
are collected and sent to the labo
ratories of the Bureau of Chemistry
and Soils and the N. C. Department
of Agriculture where analysis are
, made of the ' soils. The results of
these', analyses arc also published in

Funds Already Collected
In previous issues of The Press,
from time to time, there has been
some discussion of the Macon County
Memorial association, and a fund
which was started some seven or
eight years ago to erect some form
of memorial to thirteen men who lost
their lives in the service during the
World War. It seems 'that a fund
of something over $1,000 was raised,
and this has keen kept on interest
until it has accumulated to something
like $1,600, but no definite stpes have
been taken to complete the memorial,
as the amount raised was not deemed
sufficient to erect a suitable memorial
to the deceased soldiers.
At a recent meeting of the Macon
Post of the American Legion, the
matter of supplementing this fund
was taken under consideration. A
committee was selected for the pur
pose of selecting the type of memo
rial that would be erected, to work
out the details of raising the addition
al money needed, and of construct
ing thq memorial. The committee
selected consisted of the Post Com
mander, Frank I. Murray, Dr. Walter
E. Fiirr, Messrs. A. R. Higdon,
George Dean and Gilmer A. Jones.
This committee will submit a detailed
report to the Legion at its next meet
