Our confideilce in the'people of Transylvania was well placed as was proved by the way the workers ]>iled up the results of tiieir work in a few hours on Friday and Saturday. Reports from every committe in the ^County shjow that the best work was done toward the end of the drive. Ti4 congratulations of the county are due the volunteer workers for this loan who gave untiringly of time and energy to the task of keeping Transylvania's record for war work one hundred per cent patriotic. But the success of this last of the series of war loans is due first of all, with out doubt, to the county chairmen of the campaign for the Fifth War Loanf Miss Eliza Wallis and G. C. Kilpat rick. In undertaking to put this loan oVer they were confronted with dif- Where is to be found a more favor ed region than the one in which the citizens of this town dwell? Nature has more th&n done her part. Words grow powerless and trite when set to the'task of portraying the natural beauties of Brevard's environment. And what town its size can boMt of the civic improvements and municipal advantages of the county seat of Tran sylvania? Her schools lare held up as models throughout the state, her streets and public buildings would do credit to a town twice as large. Her people are a striking combination of all the accepted qiudities of ideal citizenship. HoweVer the possession of all these good qualities, will not help in ^en a slight proportion of their value unless their possession who are living here right now. We arouses some enthusiasm in the people must boost the good points of the town to the exclusion of the kicker. Brevard is the only town we’ve got. Let’s boost her. Maybe if we had boosted more in the past our town would be even better now that it is. We live here and we make this town, ficulties not encountered by the work-^ right up to WE US & Co. Boost ers in the preceding campaigns. The Brevard the Beautiful, general feeling that the war is fish ed added to the fact that a number of people in the county taxed their resources to buy bonds of the fourth issue made it a hard matter to secure canvassers in the varijous sections of the county; and increased the weight of responsibility placed upon the two county chairmen. 'And by their efficiency and loyalty Transyl vania county mountains a record for patriotic service which cannot be sur passed. Mr. Kilpatrick states that bonds were bought here to the amount of $69,700. Most of these were taken in Br\vard township. Lake Toka- way, where the drive. was managed by J. W, McNeely, ranked next to, Brevard. ' BOOSTBREVARP' IHENEMniFlIL ROSMAN ELECTS CITY OFFICERS GOV. BICKETT BREVARD VISITOR Gov; T. W. Bickett, who is making a tour of the western part of the state, spent a few hours here on Mon day. The chief executive was much gratified at the interest being mani fested here in the grood roads move ment and spoke in very flattering terms of the results accomplished by the county road commission. ‘ In fact Mr. Bickett seemed highly pleased with everybody and everything Tran sylvanian in general and Brevardian in particular. Of course after receiv ing the largest^ vote ever given a candidate for his office by the people The following men were elected on May 6 to fill th^ offices of the town of Rosman for the next two years: Mayor, W.

These men were nominated in a meeting of the citizens which was held prior to the election^ and are the same men who were elected two years ago, except Mr. J. W. Glazener, who was elected in the place of Mr. D. J. Bullock, Mr. Bullock having moved away from Rosman.. I desire to thank the citizens and voters of Rosman, thru the Brevard News, our valuable county paper, for th^ confidence that they have in me. I am sure that the Aldermen and Mayor will ende&vor to serve the people of Rosman with credit for the next two years. The board has elected Mr. J.

Mr. Sims came from the Boyleston section and 1^ just recently returned from Franc^^here he hejped wfwk the Hindenburg Line as a member of the 30th division. Thre is no doubt in the mindt^j^otjr pe«ple that in Chief Sims^^Bive acquired a num>. ber on^i^lPwDcer to succeed Daye 10 m^de such a large num- tends wWle^ he served the of ilbiicew Mr. Holliday not pnly lor ms vigilei^ce in )f duty but for, his unfail- iiraor gave pleasure to all Clime in <cohtact.

In its issue of Saturday Ae Green ville Piedmont published at Gi^n- ville, S. C. quotes at length from the Brevard News of May the 9th in re gard, to the road improvement now going on in TralksylVania. In regard to the JoMfes Gap road the GreenyiUe;^per sayr: “If tlra Jones Gap road in Green ville county is' soon, put in shape by J. W. Norwood and others who will attempt to secure Federal aid for the purpose, Greenville will be on direct line of a route to Pisgah Mountain, beautiful spot in the highlands of North Carolina. Building of this road from Brevard, N. C. to Pisgah Mountain^will soon begin according to the Brevard Nff^ and if the Jones Gap road*ilk built this summer Green ville will also have the benefit of it.” ' All of which is true. A good road benefits the territory adjacent to it not only but also aids in developing the resources of a*widespread area. We hope the people of Gxjeenville County will see their way clear to follow without delay the lead of Tran sylvania in good road building. The present is the best time to improve our roads.

Our Eiansrer ia Victory -, Let’us not spoil the quality of our victory by 'militarybombast or the pride of mere might. Rather, let us rub ^away'what rust there may be clinging to our. ideals of justice and purity and honor, and put into effect nationally thoiie principles which We advocate internationally. Up to the present we have been straibiilg for groat outline effect. We stood jA need of a world baickground. ThilB.we have in some measure secur- ed by our, victory, but it forms the barest beginning, doomed to become a menace unless we follow it up by a laborioiM filling in of details. 1116.world yision includes Amer^- ica, but it does not absolve her from a distinct national vision for home conditions. We aro suddenly con fronted with the fact that the small things now are the great things. Re ligiously, economically, intellectually, socially, we are pledged to a program of justice and rig)iteousness, which alone can secure for us national sal vation.—Bishop Brent. A Prayer Almighty*«nd Everlasting God. who dost govern all things in heaven and earth, we thank Thee for the world vision Thou hast granted unto us. Give us now, we pray Thee, a national vision, wherein our ideals of justice and purity and honor may be exalte ed. Religiously, economically, inter- lectually, socially. We are pledged to a program of justice and righteous ness, which alone can secure for us national salvation. Help us, by Thy might, and in thy strength, to carry out this program in meekness and humility, ever looking to Thee for guidance and direction that truth and justice may rule in all our delib erations and that our decisions may promote Thy glory and the general welfare of all our citizens, both in body and soul, through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord.
