j& Morehead City's receipts from the race track this EKrnmer
4ced the towq's total "miwellaneous revenue" for the fiscal year,
947-48, by $3,337.01. The dog dividend Is approximately four
rid a half times the revenue expected from Port Terminal levy
ignd for operation of the hospital, and is only $6,358 less than the
"total amount of tax revenue slated to go into deot service for the
leurrent fiscal year.
if' Comparing the $27,000 with total amount of taxes expected
'fa be collected during 1948-49, the race track revenue is equal to
lllightly more than 31 per cent of the anticipated tax Income, and
fyn comparison with the total revenue expected, during the current

' ' Morehcad City right now is in, the uncomfortable position of
, being looked upon enviously by towns or cities which do not have

Tire Prevention Campaigns Pay Oil
' Well-planned fire prevention campaigns do pay dividends.
' Proof of this fact is shown by a report from the United State"!
Navy's Bureau of Yards and Docks.
Through a nation-wide fire prevention campaiun, the bureau,
which is responsible for maintenance of, Navy shore installations,
was able to reduce fire damages by marc than a million and a
; half dollars during 1948.
... J Fire losses for the first quarter of this year wore $756,873,
Jdrop of nearly a million and a half dollars from losses of $2,
,050 in the same period last year, the bureau reports. The
'iber of fires dropped from 26 to 17, and average loss per fire
pped from $89,387. in the first quarter of 1947 to $44,522 in
f first quarter of 1948.
I Fire Prevention Week ends tomorrow, but fires caused by
felessness will continuo as long as we' continue to tolerate
boding places of fire, such as heaps of trash and oily rags, tum
edown buildings, and buildings without adequate number of
