Mr. Noland began his talk by
pointing out that North Carolina
leads the nation in the number of j
miles of highways maintained by j
the state. The breakdown shows
that 20 per cent of the state's 63,-
000 miles of roads are listed as
primary, and 80 per cent as sec
ondary. All roads in the state
are constructed and maintained by
the State Highway Commission.
490 Projects Completed
"During the war, only necessary
maintenance was put on North Car
olina's highways, and on May 1,
1945, there was only one project
under construction. To date, 490
projects have been completed since
that time, and 252 others under
construction. These projects have
resulted in 5.000 additional miles
of hard-surfaced roads for the
state," Mr. Noland said.

The Board of Elections on Mon
day morning called a special bond
election for the enlargement of the
Haywood County Hospital. The
board set Saturday, February 26, is
the date for the election, which
was reauested bv the board of com
missioners, upon receipt of petitions
presented to them last July.
The matter of enlarging the
Haywood County Hospital began
more than a year ago, and last
winter a citizens committee, head
ed by Joe S. Davis, began work
securing names to a petition ask
ing the commissioners to call an
election. The petitions with 812
freeholders were presented to the
commissioners last July. Due to
the pending general elections, the
board withheld action until Decem
ber 10th and then formally pre
sented the matter to the board of
George A. Brown. Jr., chairman
of the board, said that both the
board and county attorney had
carefully checked the petitions and
found a sufficient number of names
to ask for the bond election.
The proposal under which the
election will be held is the haalth ..4
prpgr,an.lawieb.bqtU a4, '
federal agencies are participating"
up to 71 per cent of building costs.
"This means that Havwood will
have to provide only 29 cents of
each dollar needed for the badly
needed expansion," Mr. Brown "
The exact amount needed for the
project has not been determined,
but Haywood's share, it is esti
mated, will be between $150,000
Work Out Plans
"Now that an election on the
matter has been called, the state
and federal agencies will send rep
resentatives here, and together
with an architect named by the
county, will work out the best plans
within keeping of the law governing
the dual set-up of the state and
federal governments," Mr. Brown
Much interest has hepn shown
here on the project, and when the
matter first came up last winter,
many civic leadurs and citizens
from ali sections of the countv met
and discussed the urgent need for
aaonionai faculties at the hospital.
Jerry Rogers, chairman of the
board of elections, pointed that
the machinery for staging the elec
tion would be completed at a later
date. On Monday, the board of
ficially called the election, and
then devoted their attention to the
special election to be held in the
32nd Senatorial district Saturday.
