Facilities Needed l or Caring For
Contagious Diseases At Local
The Haywood County Medical So
ciety by unanimous vote in the last
regular meeting. is. sponsoring -a
movement to provide facilities at the
llai'wninl Count v Hostiital to allow
hospital care for contagious diseases.
The doctors of the county have al
ways been confronted with the .prob
lem of providing hosmtal care for
lesperatelv ill patients suffering with
such diseases as diphtheria, scarlet
fever, erysipilas, typhoid fever, ami
other infectious diseases. 1 hese cases
must necessarily be quarantined at
home or in the- hosmtal. 1 hev are
dangerous to the health of all pa
tients, but more particularly to sur
gical and obstetrical patients.
n iinrn pitioc nmi menica ceu-
ion isnhitpd hrtsnittils are lirovided
for this type of cases where there is
no possibility of infection of clean
"To meet this provision it is nec
essary to have a separate building or
an an isolated wing to the mam build
ing whereby complete care can be pro
vided without danger to the regular
hospital population. A proper unit
to care for this important class of
.ltAnlD nan hp nmVtdpil for the PCO-
pie by the construction of another
wing to our present no-spiim ""'.
Too, this new facility will be provided
just as soon as the cn.iens i jii-
wood county realize its impormme
and express their wishes to the prop
er authorities," it .was pointed out.

state in which J. c . Welch, sheriff, and
former tax o. lector is named co
defendant for the allcgtd shortage of
$p(l.i20.0s. is now being prepared bv
the defense attorneys, it wa- learne I
from 1111 authoritative source bv this
piper vc.stei ilav.
Sheriff Welch in his tir! lonnal
public statement, told this paper that
1 he amount set out in the two suits
woul.i bo reduced fifty pec cent a:

.Mr. Welch, through, attorneys, wi. I
maintain that he did not receive cred
it for "about fifty per cent," as he is
charged with sales certificates and
hot given ircdit for insolvences, er
rors, releases and removals.
In his first statement yesterday,
Mr. Welch slated that some $l,K.IMI0 or
$111,0(10 had been recently collected of
the alleged $li0,!12tl shortage, but he
had hot been given . redit for it.

the suits, n against. Mr. Welch and
the ' Fidelity and Deposit Company,
of Maryland, tnr an alleged shortage
of $LM.7H.2.' 111 Mr. Welch's tax ac
counts for 193-1. 'I'lie other suit is
against Mr, Welch and the National

for all alleged shortage of $1S,'JH.H:1
111 Ins J ILL' tax accounts.
The bonr.l of i-nnimissioncis .ill a
number of occasions met with officials
of tlie bonding- companies in an effort
to settle the alleged shortage, but
unauthorative reports are that an
agreement could not he reached, as
the companies were not satisfied as to
the time the alleged shortage took
place.' lo this nomt Mr. Welch main
tains that i.he audit covering a period
of seven years brought forward all
uncredited n leases, errors and re
movals winch are consult r il regu

Just how iieai' the commissioners!
and the bunding companies got to
making a settlement could not be
learind, although the fact is- known
that cvt'i.y effort has been made to
keep the mat tor 'out of court,, as some
of those who.study such cases believo
it will be a long truwn out litigation
before the case is disposed of.:
The 1 ounty commissioners in a
