The county board of commissioners
in executive session last Thursday
night named T. J. Cathey as county
auditor for the coming two years. Mr.
Cathey has served in that capacity for
the past two years.
The reason for the appointment at
this time was necessitated by the
fact that the term of auditor expires
on the first of April instead of De
cember first like other county officers.
Mr, Cathey has become popular as
auditor during the past two years,
and received many congratulations
upon his re-election.
The duty of this office is to audit
all county offices, and institutions
with the exception of the schools and
and hospital. He is now at work on
the audit in the clerk's office. All
payrolls and vouchers are issued
through his office, as well as meeting
bonds and interest that become due.
Mr. Cathey was born and reared in
the county, and has spent most of his
life at bookkeeping and auditing, lie
was with the Bank of Canton for six
years and also worked with other
firms in the county, including, Cham
pion Fibre Company, J, T. Bailey
Wholesale Grocery, Hyatt and Com
pany, and for a number of years was
agent for the Tennessee and North
He acquired his auditing degree
from the Alexanaer-iianiiiion insii
tute, and business colleges. Afcer
receiving his degree he traveled over
the greater part of the United States
before returning to Haywood. He
now resides at Woodrow,

Mr. Briggs said the total cost of
the benches, including placing and all
was less than $1.50 each. Plans are

time," Mr. Smith said.
"Next week we are g'dng to for
