With the conferring of member-
rhip upon Miss Surah Pool and M
Mary Pool Newsome into the Nancy
Hart Chapter of the United Daugh
ters of American Revolution, thi
cal chapter achieved the distinction
of being the «*nly chapter in the
state which has on its roll the name*
of two real daughters.
Mrs. Y. H. Yarbrough, regent of
the Nancy Hart Chapter, heurd that
Henry Pool, Revolutionuty soldier of
Georgin, had two daughters living
she immediately made an investiga
tion. The result revealed the fact
that the daughters of the old soldier
lived near Gibson, Gcorgiu, and that
their father had served in the first
war of the nation. This honor
entitled them to u Gold spoon from
the National D. A. ft. society and
pension of $25.00 per month each.
These two sweet old ladies live in
a three roomed cottage near Gibson,
Gn., nnd when they were asked what
they would like their new found
friends to bring them, replied that
they would like some medicines nnd
a Bible in big print.
Mrs. Lamar Ilnm, hereby eligible
to the D. A. R., gave to the Nancy
Hart visitors a large handsor

hers. “Aunt Mary” read* il

In n review of the year’s work, the
Board of Trustees of the Georgia
State Sanitarium, presented to Gov
ernor L. G. Hardman their annual
report giving a record of the institu
tion’ work and pointing to r-ed* that
will lend toward a greater service of
“Georgia’s Greatest Charity.”
The report cited the fact that
there hnd been an increase in the
number of patients during 192R by
133, a total of 5096 inmates Being
confined to the institution ut the
close of the past year. Over six hun
dred patients had been paroled dur
ing the year, :he record divulged,
which brought the total of patients
receiving treatment to 5794. This
presented u crowded situation that
mnde u problem for the authorities
and demanded the attention of the
Georgia general assembly. Since the
report was hsued a new colored
dormitory has been opened and the
greatest congestion temporarily re
lieved. 400 colored female patients
have been housed in tbit building.
During the early fall the I- M.
Jones hospital building is expected
to be finished. Thi* building will
fill a much needed place in the
Institution's program, the report out
lined. It will be devoted to the
treatment of the acute insune and
the physical ill* among the patient*.
Two hundred and eighteen beds will
be installed in the hospital nnd the
est equipment included ! n the, ma
terials that will be «.dd*u.
The Trustees urged that the Gover
nor recommend in the Sanitarium
appropriation a fund for the erec
tion of three additional building*. It
was shown that five buildings had
been requested and that the request
had been partially answered wuh the
two new buildings that have and are
being erected. The repefrt stated
