Not les than three internationally

day night, Oct., 19th, in Atlanta,
according to official word from the
Atlanta A. S. H. A. Although the
names of the three speakers were
not revealed, it is said that one is
a Governor, one a high official of the j
Dominion of Canada, and the third j
the son of a former President of the |

| -\. Marvel, famed rdad promoter,
\ ice president and general manager
of the Kenilworth Inn, Asheville.
"Adulph Ochs, publisher of the
Now York Times, has written me that
he will drive over the A S II in his
personal car, ami will probanly say
something at the convention," Mr.
; "I wish to thank Murphy for the |
loyal support she has given the A. S. I
H.. and I will make every effort to
see that Murphy is properly repre-'
centcd at our second convention." '
, Mr. Marvel Has long been a booster J
for Murphy, located as It is between
Asheville and Atlanta, the South's
two most progressive cities. In his
mind, he says, there is no doubt but
that Murphy will grow by leaps and
bounds in coming years, and with the
good roads which she now enjoys.
"It is imperative", declared Mr.
Marvel, "that we all boost our respective
cities, but it is even more
imperative that we tell the world of
the glories of Western North Caroline
that we may feel the benefits of
the industries and tourists, whether
or not they locate in our particular

Following the dinner. President W.
M. Fain introduced two A. S. H. officials,
Woodley C. Merritt, Field
Secretary and David Sanders Ballou,
Director of Field Publicity, who are
making a short southern trip to
arouse enthusiasm in the coming convention.
In a short adlress to the Lions, Mr.
"Murphy, as an industrial centre,
has a most unusual and strategic position.
It is located between Atlanta
and Asheville?two cities famed
throughout this country for ILhetr
"Travellers, passing from Asheville
to Atlanta, will most generally stop
at Murphy for lunch, or, in many instances,
overnight. The same applies
Atlanta. The mileage from Murphy
to Asheville or Murphy to Atlanta is
almost the same, with the variation
of hut a few milc?>
"There is no reason, with the live,
progressive men of which Murphy
can hoast more than the average, why
this city should not rival either Atlanta
or Asheville in a short time.
It has the tourist possibilities and it
has the industrial locations. It has
electricity water sanitation accomodations
and space which can be had
for a reasonable figure. Should a
large industry come here, realizing
the future of Murphy, I feel sure
that you would find another railroad
make a bid to come into this territory.
Let's all get together and make
this a banner year for Murphy which
we can easily do, with the roads of
the A. S. II. in the excellent condition
which they are now in, " he
Mr. Itallou, who handles all of the
Field Exploitation work and Publicity
fo the A. S. II. fervently asked the
members of the Lions to band together
with every other progressive man
in Murphy to further Murphy's interests.
"The old saying of 'United we
stand' hold here as it does in all cases
If all of us get together for the common
good, we will all benefit, just
as surely as you sit here.
"Boost Murphy", assorted Mr. Ballou,
"but be sure and also boost the
other town in your immediate vicinity.
Such action brings Rood will and
very material gains in the end. it is
no trouble at all to tell the world
that Andrews is a good town,?and
when Andrews finds she's got a booster
in Murphy, what is her logical
thing to do? Reciprocate! She'll
boost right hack.
"When we have Western North
Carolina boosting not only the A.
S. H., but aiding the propaganda of
the other towns and cities on the
route, industrial men, tourists and
business men will be a whole lot more
interested in what we have to say,"
Lions Club First Members
Following the regular business of
the meeting. Dr. E. E. Adams made
a motion that the Lions Club of Mur.
phy be the first member to join the
