Ti noiintv board of commis
sioners repealed on Monday of
uim mull thn recent action taken
by them prohibiting the sale of
wine, ale and beer between the
hours of midnight on Saturday and
the same hours on Sunday.
The first action was taken as
a result of the recommendations
of certain groups in the communi
ty, and afterwards those oppos
ing the action presented sufficient
evidence to bring about the repeal.
It was pointed out that of
the establishments selling light
wines and beer in Haywood county,
all but five are located within the
corporate limits and that each com
munity has adequate police pro
tection and tfliat each of the incor
porated towns also has the right
by law to make and: enact regula
tions for the sale of beer and wine
during certain hours on Sunday.
