Taxable Property Valua
tion In County Boosted
$200,000 Over Last Year.
Tax payers in Haywood County
will get a break during the year
1943-44, according to the budget
announced this week by T. J. Cath
cy, county auditor.
The tax rate has been set at
$1..'?0 per $100 property valuation,
which is 15 cents less than that of
last year which was $1.45. Th
present valuation of property ii
Haywood County is estimated at
$23,400,000.00, which is $200,000
more than the valuation set for last
The 1943-44 budget appropria
tion of $4411,554.77 which has been
approved by the county commis
sioners is around $118,000 less than
the appropriation for the past year
which was set at $4S1 ,.r)t',7.:lH.
The current budget is around
$(.4,00(1.00 1. ss than the budget of
the year 1041-42.
One reason for the lowered bud
get of the past and the current
year is the fact that th.re was no
school building program last year
nor will there be in the coming
year, us was the case in the years
prior to 1942-43. It is estimated
that the school building program
absorbed anywhere from $35,000 to

Dr. Elmer T. Clark
To Address Hazelwood
' Dr. Elmer T. Clark, of the Board
J of Missions of the Methodist church
jwill speak to the women of the
I Hazelwood Methodist Church at
their church tonight at 7:30. Dr.
I Clarke has recently returned from
ta tour of the Latin American coun
tries where he surveyed the work
of the mission field. All the wo
men of the community are invited
to hear Dr. Clarke.
The call f"i' more bandag. s from the v
woik. i's in Waynesville has been increased. Th.- quota
Augu-t will require hundreds of hours of work by women
are anxious that Haywood men and their conn ad. s can h. I
uly eared for when wounded.
Th" bandages which volunteer Red Cross workers all
the nation art- . aking, are among the essential things
help restore wounded men back to health.
With the increase in the demands for bandages, it means
that the local Red Cross room must have many more workers.
Failure to get adequate bandages made, means only one thing
somewhere, sometime, some wounded man will have to do without.
This war has come mighty close to Haywood, and hardly
an issue of this newspaper is published without news that sad
dens the hearts of the community.
Next to news that one of Haywood's gallant fighting men
has given his all or wounded, we know of no sadder news than
"a life could have been saved, if we had had bandages."
Haywood has never failed to make a quota in any war
campaign or war effort.
Haywood will not fail this time.
There are too many brave, patriotic women in Haywood
who will volunteer their services, and make bandages.
The Red Cross room is open every day from Monday through
Friday from 2 to 5 o'clock and on Thursday nights from 8 to 10.
The men who are facing death to keep this nation free, are
expecting the women back home to make the necessary bandaiges
for their wounds.
