French Broad Project, '
Abandoned Five Months
Ago, Sought By People
HeiWiersonville, N. C., Dec. 27.?
Several thousand citizens of Henderson
county, it is shown, have petitioned
the United States government
to begin work On the construction of
bhe proposed dam at Bent Creek, on
the French Broad -river. Petitions,
placed in many stores in tl,e city and
carried by interested citizens throughout
the rurst Section, have been generously
signed. These have been assembled
and are this wehk being placed
in the hands of administration representatives.
Examination -of the petitions disclores
the fact that practically a/U leading
business and professional uncn of
the city and the farmers generally
have signed the petitions Of especial
interest was the copy of the petition
that was circulated among the residents
of Mills River section. It is
said 90 percent of the citizens of
that section signed the petition asking
the government to begin work on the
Thirty Million DoFar Smith
Waiter B. Smith, outstanding leader
in advocacy of erection of the dam
Here, expressed confidence that the
government will Soon bqgin work on
the dam, basing his belief, he says,
upon the fact that so many of the
citizens and tax saV<rs have netition
ed the government to go ahead with
the work. Others here likewise believ:
that work will soon start on the
massive structure that wi.l create a
lake which will cover a large area of
t}>e lands in the Oounty.
It was the belief of many citizens
interviewed this week that the work
woiiM have already beer, started had
it not been for an apparent objection
to the plan. Since the petitions have >
been bo generously signed, however.^
It n now believed the government will j
go ahead with the original pfans.

of use it was washed away by a
The grand stand, as planned this
year by Hickman, will cost approximately
$150 for material, the labor

the third base line between the diamond
end the highway. Also included
in the plane is a high backstop to cut
down the loss on balls.

of at hast one ball game in
