designed to abolish the present!
requirements for physical exami
nations for those applying for
marriage licenses, introduced the
first few days of the present ses

that the prospective bridegroom I
must either make an affidavit that
he has not had tuberculosis or any
venereal diseases within the past
two years or present a certificate ]
showing that he has had a physi-1
cal examination and does not have
any of these diseases. No afi'i-!
davit or certificates is required j
from the prospective bride.
The original bill, introduced by
Representative Wilson of Caswell,
would have repealed the present
law requiring physical examina
tions for both contracting parties.
The bill was bitterly fought by the
women's lobby, and the senate re
fused to agree to it. The confer

The new tax relief law applies
also to municipalities, and it was
expected today that the board of j
commissioners of Hendersonvillo j
will adopt a resolution similar to i
that enacted by the county board, j
Official action in this connection |
has been deferred until early next ■
week, it was said today.
The relief, through the giving'
of notes for back taxes after pay- j
ing 19:12 taxes in cash, is covered
by section No. 1 of House bill No. j
That section reads as follows:
"Section 1. That the several
counties, municipalities and other
agencies of government owning
taxes, or tax sales certificates for
lands in their several units for
the years 1027, 1928, 1920, 19.X0,
and 19.11, at the request of th'j
owner or owners of the land, are
hereby authorized, empowered
and directed to enter into agree
ments with the owners of the
lands covered by said tax sales
certificates whereby said taxes, or
tax sales certificates, exclusive ot'
interest and penalties may be paid
in installments covering a period
not to exceed five years, and bear
ing interest at the rate of six per
cent per annum, payable annual
ly, from and after the first day
of April, 19.1.1; provided, that un
less the said counties and the
owners of lands covered by said
taxes, or tax sales certificates,
enter into said agreements on or
before the first day of April, 19.1-1,
this section shall become inopera
tive, and the said counties are au
thorized to proceed with foreclos
ure proceedings as hereinafter set
out: provided, that as a condition
precedent to this settlement the
several agencies of government
are authorized and empowered in
their discretion to require th-'
payment of the 19.12 taxes by
resolution duly passed by the gov
ernmental agencies.
Section 9 of the act reads:
"The governing authorities of
(jbe counties, municipalities, or
utiier subdivisions holding any
claim for delinquent taxes upon
lands for any of the years 1927,
1928, 1929, 10.'10 or 19,11 atv
hereby authorized and directed to
accep1 from any person or per
sons owning any interest in or
! holding any lien upon lands the
principal amount of the taxes, less
iteiest and penalties, in cash, less
10 per cent if "paid before April
11, 19.14, or upon the installment
i plan provided for in section 1 of
this act: provided, the maker of
any installment note may antici
pate the payment thereof in whole
■ or in part by paying the same in
i cash, less 10 per cent discount, »f
