IP£5 General Assemblv early in the session it was out today by Chief Engineer W. Vance Raise. Ap proximately 1,000 additional mainten ance men have been at work sisce March on the roads that were in the ™'crst condition and most of these have now been areally improved. Ap proximately $750,000 a month has been spent on additional maintenance dur ing the past four months. One of the problems in connection with the new maintenance appropri ation of SIO.OOOOOO a year is that sl -a year of this must be spent in the employment relief labor, Baise pointed out. It is not yet definitely known iust what wage scale will be paid this relief labor, but it will prob able be about $1,400 per man year with the result that the ’highway de partment will have to employ about 1,300 relief laborers a year as main tenance workers. Baise pointed out. If these relief laborers turn out to be as efficient as the other workers, the plan will workout all right. But Baise is inclined to doubt whether these relief laborers will be as effi cient as the ethers, and that the main tenance division will get as much work done with this relief labor as it could if left free to employ its labor without restrictions.

S No New Case Has Been Re ported in City in About One Week TYPHOID SERUM GIVEN Hundreds Rushing for Inoculation Against Disease as Numbers Exceed Any Campaign in Recent Years Health authorities and doctors in general here are hoping that the peak in the outbreak of infantile paralysis has been reached, since it has been about a w r eek since the last case in this county was reported. They have no basis for the hope other than that it has been a long time since the last case turned up than th interval be tween any of the others. A total of fourteen cases have been found in this county since the pres ent flare-up of the dread disease, and two of these have died, both being very small children. At the present time there are 12 cases in the county, and, according to reports, some of the sufferers continue to show improve ment. Information is not available for all of the children who have been stricken. Meantime, the rush to obtain the anti-typhoid serum preventive goes on unabated throughout the county. Everywhere Dr. Z. P. Mitchell goes in the rural clinics he is being greet ed by great numbers of people seek ing the treatment, which, of course, is free. Nearly 1 000 received the vacci nations Monday on visitations to ru ral localities, it was reported today. And the number being treated at the health office is still very large. No figures are available for last week, but at the end of the previous week more than 2.000 persons had been given the first and many of them the second of the three injections requir ed for the full treatment. Indications now are that the number taking the preventive this summer may set an all-time high record for Vance county. ARRANGE FOR DESK POLICE SERGEANT Arrangements are being made at the fire department for quarters for the new police desk sergeant, but the set-up has not advanced as yet to the point where the service can start. A part of the new plan provides for a number of telephones to be stationed about over the city where officers on beats may be reached by calls when it may become necessary to communi cate with them.

He stabbed Bpb Neathery, operator of the sta tion, and slashed Wesley Adams, Jr., to the extent that several stitches had to be taken to close the wound. The Negro came to the filling sta tion to see another colored man who worked there, and got into an argu ment with Neathery, in the course of which he pulled out his knife and at tacked Neathery. He stabbed the young man in the chest and on the arm. and Adams sensing Neathery’s predicament, went to his rescue and received a deep cut in his thigh and a minor slash on his finger. Adams is able to be about, but Neathery is still confined to his bed. According to information, the Negro was aiming at Neathry’s throat and may have in flicted a serious, if not fatal, wound, had not Adams intervened. After the cutting.
