Last week the Scout car: ied a <t'?r\ listing the
names of tho*- trie- :hat had been selected by Governor
Ehringliaus tc? choose a sil?' for the $250,000 tuberculosis
sanatorium ihal will be built somewhere in Western
North Carolina and l!ie board of directors for the hospital.
Everywhere I ar the ieply that we at Murphy
are loo far aw i? ir??r. the state to be even considered.
ISut evidently th <-e -e to us do not think so. Onlv
the wthef day - rliele disclosed that the Chamber
of Commcx c \\ a\: 'sville was taking steps to have
tlui hospital In " that vicinity. And there is 110
douhl that ? is rlose b\ will make the >anie
bill for the i t; : i ary.
If we lake : . ? chance" attitude we might as
well give up a!! \\ ? are not too far away from
Kalcigh or ; 1 N|ow Che.okee cotintv is
located m We. \ ith Carolina and in Western
North Carolie - Uarinni will be built.
We have chantage. We should present our
bid for the b> ; i. ?ng with those others. Manv
believe that A- i.as the thing liltciallv "sewed
up. I hat In fact Ashe\i||,? has been - >
indignant nvei e : that no one from that <it\ wagiven
recogn. c;tbei ol the boards until they
may make li; - - I.o.tile and lose out altogether.
I ir>t vv i-k oat h individual that reads this piece
to consider the . i ?im.?^ lie is in. With that in mind
imagine the of $260,000 ,?n the hospital
and $100,00c p. yea; maintenance appropriation.
Then consider how much each indivual business
represented by Cherokee county folk would profit by
it. It is ivor.'i i little work and effort t?> everyone to
have the san'.otiam built here.

I TRIBUTE TO HER
Of iili v holidav-t and days of observance that
up'?u u- each year, there are none, we think, that
keeps its true meaning and spirit as does Mother s day
inch i- t" I?e observed Sunday.
It i- customary on thai day to wear a flower in
memory -i tier who would have gladly died to give us
anything toe wanted, it die is living a red flower is
woSn and it -he i- gone, a white flower is worn.
Perhaps no man. ?>r woman, ever forgets t*-e intimate
l??\c. the closeness of spirit that is taught by his
or her mother. The deep lo\e in-tilled into our souhby
lie.1 guiding hand, remains always.
Inn- of us who weae white flowers Sunday
hjv< b?-t the next dearest thing to life itself and t^osc
that are -o fortunate t ? be able to wear a red one.
have still the greatest worlJy blessing God has given
i:s -a mothe..
O- asionallv we hear <t a mother deserting her!
hiliii -H. But it i-n't oft-n .:tul when it does happen,
i i- not a true mothe: that a- deserted?not a true '
mothe like xours and mine whose hope was our life I
and whose life should now he our hope.
Sunday will he a dax >r reverance and l!ie lies! 1
thing that we, as human individuals ran do. is pax our |
respeels |., her xvhn loves us |>e<t and who will he true
to us until death.
Tit-- best tiling t > do then is to look over the li-t
loselv and if any friends are seen to he on tlie hoard. 1
contact them and present our advantages. If this sec- j
lion i'ojiId organize, lile a peptition. or better still, go
direct!) to the hoard and present our position, we feel
that we would be well repaid.
I ran readily he *een what organized action can
do for this section, and as long as we sit down and content
ourselves with twiddling our thumbs and wondering
why we aren't ! n-ated somewhere in North Carolina
-o we could share in the general appropriation, we can
not hope to he recognize I and have it given to us on a j
