HOT SPRINGS ACHIEVES GOALS
It is with pride and delight that this newspaper
salutes the citizens of Hot Springs for achieving its
goals during 1956 in 'the Finer Carolina Program,
sponsored by the Carolina Power and Light Compa
ny. Truly, whether Hot Springs wins, loses or draws
in the contest, its accomplishments have made Hot
Springs one of "Carolina's Finest Towns."
With a total of 137 towns competing for honors
in the Finer Carolina Contest, it is indeed likely that
some other town may win the "blue ribbons," but in
any event, the people of Madison County can well
realize that the citizens of Hot Springs are progress
ive and work together for town improvements.
The Hot Springs Friendship Club sponsored the
establishment of a medical clinic and as a, result of
splendid leadership and cooperation, Hot Springs
can boast of the Craig Rudisill Memorial Clinic,
staffed by Dr. James Milling. "This has long been a
needed addition to that section and it now affords
the entire section with a modern and adequate med
The W.omen's Civic Club decided to take as its
project the development of a Community Center.
Needless to say, the women of Hot Springs do things
when they set out to, and as a result a community
center has been completed where various meetings,
benefits, and parties are held. In addition to these,
it is used as headquarters for the Blood mobile and
other Red Cross Programs.
The Hot Springs Men's Civic Club, not to be out
done by the women, pitched in and decided to im
prove the whole town s appearance. Their beautifi
cation program has added greatly to the appearance
of the town.
Among the town's other major improvements are
a new "addition to Burlington Mill, a new and mod
ern gas station, enlargement of the town's water sys
tem, paving an additional 350 feet of streets and
over 5,000 man hours and 80 bulldozer hours in gen
eral clean-up and improvement.
The most important force behind these improve
ments was enthusiastic leadership; leaders who
would not become discourdged and tired when plans
seemed to lag. Hot Springs has the necessary lead
ership to make plans "cUck."
J We offer congratulations to Edward Ellehburg,
ftasraijjairman; the Friendship Cpub, -th.,Wom-'

A new antituberculosis vaccine, called RlRv, is being developed in the laborato
ries of the tuberculosis research center of the North Carolina Sanatorium System lo
cated at Chapel HUl, and tested in animals along with four BCG vaccines which are
used widely in countries where the death rate from TB is extremely high. The project
which led to the development or the RlRv valine was made possible by dollars con
tributed to the annual Christmas Se.;l Sales of tuberculosis associations throughout
tho country. In the top picture, a rabV.t which has been vaccinated with one of the
five vaccines being tested, and later jriven live TrS germs, is getting its regular
