Last Friday evening the spacious
dining roorn of Panorama Courts
was; filled to the doors with th,e
Macon county teachers and , their
guests. The 180 people were seat
ed at long tables gaily decorated
with crepe piper. The theme of
the banquet was "Defense" and a
red, .whiw and blue color motive
was carried out in the decorations
from the American flags on the
walls to the tiny silk flags at each
place. Much careful planning and
work had been done to produce
th,c. attractive paper mint basket
ami program at each tlate.
At the speaker's table, seated
before an inunense American flag
was the presiding officer of the
Macon county Teachers Associa
tion, Miss Nora Moody, who was
.a capable and inspiring master of
ceremonies. The party was a gay
affair to the very end.
Dean Bird Chief Speaker
Dean VV. E. Bird, ioi iWestern
Carolina Teachers College, Cullo
w'hec, delivered a thoughtful mes
sage, as is' his custom. He indicted
all teachers including himself
for having too narrow a concept
of education, limiting it to the
training of the mind and not the
hands. He pointed out that it is
an established fact that North
Carolina must stand by and' with
otlu-r states to get large defense
"North Carolina has not kept up
with the other .states in producing
skilled workers; teachers and edu-
cators must wake up to the fact'
that North Carolina is producing
only two classes, namely, unskilled
labor and white collar job seekers",
the speaker said. "Today's: demand
is for neither of these. The ne,ed
is for ' skilled workers men and
women who can think while they
build with their hands. Teachers
cannot chang,e the present system
until told to do so by their super
iors, but they , can guide the chil
dren and mould their ambition to
become a. skilled Worker rather
than a bookkeeper." DLean Bird
said that expert carpenter,, stone
masons, plumbers" and other skill
ed craftsmen were very . difficult
to find, whil,e there were many
job seekers in the common class
and white collar group. "
Dr. J. L. Stokes II offered the
invocation and all sang Amer-:
ica." The Franklin Choral Club j
sang Dvork's "Goin' Home", di
rected by. Mrs. James Ay,erell. The
male quartette of the Choral so
ciety, . consisting of Hawkins,
Stokes, Harky Cabe and Menden
hall sang "Roll Dem Bones" and
all joined in singing The Old
North State and God Bless Arntr
Preceding the principal address
by Dean Bird Dr. W. A. Rogers,
Macon's representative in the Gen
eral Assembly, gave a brief out
line of what that body had done
during the 191 session, and assur
ed the teachers that he was giv
ing active support to improving
their working conditions. . He added
to the eVning's entertainment by
telling several jokes that also
emanated from the legislators, ac
cording to the doctor.
Guy L. Houk, county superin
tendent . of schdols, urfted the
teachcri to. take the offensive in
training their pupils to be self
reliant in nreoararion for the post
war period. "Teach the children
to be glad to work, to save, Jo m
vest wisely." He stated that he
did not approve of WPA, NYA
and other government help. He
reviewed the fundamentals of de
mocracy and stated that the
teachers should lose no opportun
ity to awaken in the children an
appreciation of democracy's privi
leges and responsibilities."' ..
Mrs. Jessie Horsley was chair
man of arrangements for the ban
This delightful affair jas en

One Motor Fatality
In Macon In 194T
Figures released from the' High
way Safety Division show that one
fatality was recorded for Macon
county in 1940 and one for 1941.
As compared with nf ighboring
counties, the 1941 record of Jack
son, 1 ; Graham, 1 ; Transylvania, 1 ;
Clay, Cherokee and Swain,, none.
An increase throughout the state
of traffic accidents is shown, but
this cannot be attributed to in
creased national defense activities,
says Ronald Hocutt. director of the
Highway Safety Division.
"Only 12 of the 175 traffic deaths
in the state during January and
February could be attributed to
national defense activity,"' he said.
"In view of tHe heavy volume of
traffic and vast movements of ma
terials, this number indicates that
the defense program is not a
great factor in the accident situa
tion." "The really big factor.?' were
carelessness, recklessness and speed.
What we need in the way of de
fense is a greater number of
drivers who are interested -in the
defense of lives of travelers on the
