Program of the local band, which
will cost $4,200, it was learned from
W. A. Bradley, chairman, this morning.
Mr. Bradley said that about S800
had already been raised through
contributions at two football games
Friday and Saturday anj the
dime boarfl which was operated n
Saturday by the Lions Club.
"We got about $360 on the dime
board Saturday; about $100 at the
open house program of the new
band building last Thursday night,
and almost $400 at the two games."
"The need for 30 additional unl
forms, together with several instru
ments is urgent," the chairman
said. "Now that we have a modern
band building, it is important that
we add these other things.
"This is the first drive for funds
for the band in several years, and
it will be three or four more years
before we will have another. We
feel that once every four years is
not asking too much when one con
siders how much the band contri
butes to the life of the community,"
Mr. Bradley continued.

Town officials- have sixty days in
which lo set up final machinery for
calling an election on the $80,000
bond election for a recreational
center. The aldermen are checking
the petition containing 816 names
which was presented lo them
Thursday afternoon by representa
tives of the Waynesville Lions
Club, and Jaycecs. The petition
must contain 15 per cent of the
number of voters participating in
the last two election. Sponsors of
the petitions feel they have about
seven to eight times a many names
as required by law,
Francis Massie, chairman of the
1 group," ind Charlie Woodartt,' pre
sented the petitions to the board,
with the request that no time he
lost in calling the bond election.
Mayor J. H. Way told the group
that his idea was to have a resolu
tion passed calling for a vote on
$250,000 in water bonds at the
same time. He explained that the
45-year-old filler plant was now
processing four times as much wa
ter as it should, and a new plant,
together with new mains from the
intake were essential. It was es
timated that It would require
$250,000 for the Job. Engineers
made a survey several years ago,
and estimated the cost then at
The leaders presenting the peti
tions pointed out that many addi
tional names could be secured,
but the committee felt that 816 was
.sufficient,' as it contained the sig
natures of some of the largest tax
payers in town. They also cited,
and quoted several large property
owners here who live outside of
town, and do not vote in town elec
tions, srs favoring the proposal.
