was nearly $400 less during the
past year than the previous year,
according to Lawrence L. Kerley,
chief of the local fire department
The fire department has two
trucks, one purchased by Hazel
wood, and operated by the Waynes
ville department under a special
agreement between the two com
munities, and all other fire fight
ing equipment considered neces
sary for a community of this size.
The town co-operates with prop
erty owners in hauling off trash,
garbage and other fire hazards on
a regular schedule of trucks. Close
inspection is made of all the pri
vate and public buildings in this
In accounting for the improve
ment along these lines Mr. Kerley
stated that people generally speak
ing are taking more precautions
about their property, and are more
careful than they have ever been
in keeping their premises clear of
From October 1, 1940 to October
1, 1941 the local city fire depart
ment received 45 calls, 34 of which
were from the town of Waynes
ville. Eleven of these, including
8 from Hazelwood, were from out
side the city limit.
The cost Of operating the trucks,
counting wear, upkeep of the
equipment.and gas amounted to
$1,756 during the past year. The
total cost for firemen amounted to
$308 for inside fires and $143 for
fires outside the city limits. This
does not include the salary paid the
fire chief. . "' -,'
KThe damage to property in the
city limits last year totaled $1,880,

"Blossom Time," America's fav
orite operetta, based upon the im
mortal melodies of Frani Schubert,
and produced by the Messrs.
Shubert, comes to the Auditorium,
Asheville, one performance only
Saturday, Oct. 18, with Everett
Marshall singing the role of the
famous composer. It is 20 years
since "Blossom Time" had its first
performance on Broadway, and
during the intervening years, the
operetta has enjoyed a success un
paralleled in the annals of the
American stage. The charm and
simplicity of the love story, the
sheer verve of its music, the gay
humor and the bitter-sweet poig
nancy of a life devoted to a single
end, assured it of overwhelming
popular approval from the very be
So great was the demand to see

Company was installed on Broad
way. Never before or since has
New York been treated to the
spectacle of the same musical pro
duction playing in theaters facing
each other on the same street, . V
The original presentation of
"Blossom Time" remained on
Broadway for almost two years,
while eight or nine road companies
were touring the key cities. Since
then, the operetta has returned to
New York at least seven times for
additional long runs, and repeat
performances have been offered in
every city where a theater was
available. Its audience seems as
inexhaustible as its appeal.
The curtain goes up on this per
formance at 8:30 p. m. sharp.
