JT AND J
Hon't Be Misled |
In any campaign regardless of
the natur of same, rumors of 1
different kinds will be circulated,
namely: one candidate will hear
that another candidate ha> so |
many votes, etc. These statements
can always be discredited
aiiu especially in a campaign ni\ j
There arc only two people
who know how many votes have
been cast for a candidate. On
is the campaign manager and the
other is the candidates themsel- i
ves. N it even the publisher of
the newspaper knows. So don't
bo misled. By your own accomplishments
you can win.

Lioug Club Interested in
Having Roads Repaired;
At the suggestion of Fred 0.
Scroggs and Sam Mendenhal), the
local Lions club at their regular
meeting in the Murphy cafe Tuesday
night voted to back up a move to
have one or more CCC camps located
in this county to h ip in th*- conduction
of roads and the prevention
of soil erosion.
Basing their claims on th*?
that there is only one CCC camp lo:ated
in the county and that no
benefits of the government worker?
lias been received in Cherokee, the
two Lions suggested that an investigation
be made to obtain any possible
assistance along this line possible.
In view of the fact that the government
has made increased appropriations
for CCC funds, a committee
of Chairman R. W. Gray, Fred
0. Seroggs, Sam Mendenha", W. M.
Fain and A Q Ketner was appointed
to investigate the matter.
There is no indication that the
CCC boys have ever done any work
on Cherokee county roads and the
extravagance of unabated soil erosion
is driving the Cherokee county
farmer to the dole line and the relief
offices, the two reported.
G. \V. Ellis, acting president at
the meeting in the absence of H.
Bueck appointed another committee
of Chairman W. M. Fain, H. G. Elkins
and A. Q. Ketner to be in
charge of arrangements for "Ladies
Night", which will be observed at
tho next meeting two weeks hence.
It is believed that District Governor
Guy O. Bagwell, who will be in
Asheville the night of May 22 to attend
the ladies night meeting of th?
As>heville Lions, will be present at
the meeting. j
Lion W. M. Fain reported that a
new club would be formed at Hickory

VND DONKEYS IN
ONKEY BALL GAME
under flood lights, the TVA boys
showed themselves superior to their
challtngrs, the Lions club, in Murphy's
first taste of donkey baseball.
Weilding a mighty bat, and with
the aid of a pocketful of lump sugar,
brother Beall of the TVA posse,
smashed one clean out of the range
Df the lights for a home run?with
three cohorts on base.
The best the Lions could do was
