A summary of the year's efforts
reveals the fact that the Woman's
Bureau is a thriving organization,
striving at all times toward the
goal of a better and more beauti
ful town in which to live.
Outstanding among the accom
plishments of the year was the in
auguration of Brevard's first flower
show which was staged by the Bu
lvau in August, and was pronounced
a decided success in every respect by
the hundreds of people who attend
ed. It is the intention of the Bu
reau to make this an annual event
of tlx* summer season, and thereby
stimulate more interest in flower
culture among Brevard residents,
and at the same time advertise the
A membership drive was the
main achievement of the early part
of the year, when, as result of a
?on'oRt between th<> Green and Blue
teams ,the membership was increased
from 40 to 112, the winning team
being entertained by the losers.
In cooperation with the Chamber
of Commerce, the Bureau sponsored
a clean-up campaign in the spring,
the good results of which were
visible in both the business and res
idential sections, and this organiza
tion has been untiring in its efforts
since that time to make the results
of this annual campaign of more
lasting benefit in the community.
The Bureau pledged financial sup
port during the year to a number
of worthy community requests, in
eluding the Elementary School IN
brary fund, Brevard's two hospitals
on Hospital Day, the High School
cotton day contest, and Christmas
remembrances to inmates of the
county home. In addition, the an
nual prize of a five dollar gold
piece was awarded the owner of

ing the greatest improvement in at

In accordance with its original
purpose to cooperate with the city
authorities in upholding everything
for town betterment and beau
titication, the Woman's Bureau
i>?ts conferred, by letter or verbally, j
with the mayor, the board of alder- ;
men and the city police on different j
occasions, offering suggestions for j
improvement along lines of com
munity welfare, or requesting a >
more strict enforcement of certain j
important city ordinances.
Interesting and instructive pro- |
j; tams on various subjects have been j
presented during the year, stressing i
in puticular fldwer culture, lawn j
. i ramification, health and sanitation I
problems, and different phases of |
?tvie welfare as pertaining to this |
community. Prominent speakers
have been heard, among whom were j
J. B. Ivey, of Charlotte and ' Lake |
lunaluska, who gave valuable infor- ,
motion from his expert knowledge !
of dahlia culture; Mrs. W. C. Brown- |
son, of Asheville, giving instructive j
facts from her wide experience in
the culture of small flowers and rock
gardens; Miss Martha Creighton, of |
iho State home economics depart- 1
rnent, who spoke interestingly of '
her work., also several local men ?
and women were heard on different j
subjects during the year.
In addition to these outstanding
projects undertaken by the Bureau
during the past year, others of
minor importance have been put in
to action or endorsed as of benefit
to the community.
Insofar as the policy of the 'Wo
man's Bureau, since its organization
.iust two years ago, has been to up
hold and encourage all things that
tend toward community beautified
tion and civic welfare, and to protest
non-enforcement of city ordinances,
just so does its policy continue, and
even greater and more beneficial re
sults in the life of the community
are expected during the coming
year, on account of the efforts of

Preference for Dunlop Tires has caused Dunlop
to grow so that now, including the greatest of
all Dunlop plants at Buffalo, N. Y., Dunlop
occupies a productive area of over 100,000
acres. Over 22,000,000 Dunlop Tires are now
running. The service that they give is both the
cause and result of Dunlop's magnitude.

Association; State College; State
Board of Health; State Department

Public Welfare and the Federation
of Woman's Clubs. A preliminary,
meeting was held in Raleigh on Oc
tober 20, and a subcommittee was
named to appear before the Gover
nor on November 1!) to obtain his
endorsement of the movement.
Expressing himself as thoroughly
in accord with the proposed Insti
tute, Governor McLean stated to the
committee that he felt that if a
broad program of parental education
should become a definite part of ir.e
plan of education it would be one of
the most worthwhile things that had
taken place in recent years, in his
"The carrying to the parents t f
North Carolina of the vast amount
of available information in connec
tion with these problems will no
doubt result in a closer cooperation
bctw-.-en the parents and schools in
forwarding the program of physical
mental, spiritual and social health,"
says Mr. Browne. "This information
may be disseminated most effective
ly through a concerted and united
effort of all forces concerned with
the problem of child development."
The nine institutions and agencies
which have joined forces in the
project are committed to the propo
sition that the influence of the
schools, the church, the community
and other social institutions are
effective only as the parents are in
sympathy with their purposes. Rec
ognizing that there are no influences
so strong and lasting upon the child
bs those of early life, which are
:ontroll?d and dominated by the par
ents, the group is fostering the first
Institute for Parental Education,
emphasizing the responsibility of the
parents and extending to them ev
ery possible advantage through in
formation and study.
