Between 200 and 250 persons at
tended the sale, which was consider
ed the most successful ever held, ac
cording to Jas. L. Robinson, county
agent. The success of the sale was
in large measure due to the interest
taken in it by the First National Bank
of Waynesville and the Champion
Bank and Trust Company, of Canton,
which institutions made it possible for
any farmer in the county, who desired
to do so, to acquire a purebred bull
by means of assisting in the financ

their midst allows the citizens of any
county xvhen they so wish it to vote
houds for the building and -equipping
of a county hospital the interest and
principal of said bonds to lie repaid
from a county wide tax levy. The
same law also states that the Board
of Trustees must see that a reason
able charge is made for hospital ser
vices, and only in case of pauper's are
the services to be free, and in -such
cases the welfare .officers must "first
pass upon their worthiness.
The citizens of Haywood county
some few years ago voted a $100,000
bond issue for the puroo.-e of building
and equipping a hospital in order that
the citizens might have the opportU'
nity of hospitalization at moderate
rates without having to leave the
county. The real estate, building and
equipment cost more than $120,000.
therefore the hospital could not have
been built and equipped with the lKind
issue alone, but was made possible by
additional help from Other sources.
During the year 1931 there was paid,
into the hospital fund from both cur
rent and back taxes combined $7,860.
96, from Which was paid bond maturi
ties and interest $7,715.51, leaving n
balance of only $151.46. How far
would the $151.46 go toward giving

county? The operating expenses -alone
