Barrett Editor SUBSCRIPTION RATES (Payable In Advance) Thursday, December 3, 1931 LK r THE LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE THEIR SANTA CLAUS Calloused, indeed, is the man who would deny a little child its full en ioyovoutr o!' Christmas and its sweet KssuriaUon with Santa Claus. Be caii:;?. money is scarce, or times tight, #v work, is slack, there can be no rea son for taking away from childhood its inalienable right to the enjoyment of Christmas. The price of a pack ?? cigarettes, or a pint of lickcr, or i plug of tobacco, will purchase suf ik .at toys to gladden the heart of a child at Christmas time. . ii.: Brevard News derives its ^ .ttst pleasure in acting as an a: :?<: between the children and Santa i, by publishing their letters and ti:: ? giving the original letters direct to old Santa himself. He came to \h( otfice of The Brevard News this Th.i. :-.y morning and got all the lettei- that had been sent in up to tli:s tiim . But those of you who did imt get your letters in for him to get hi his trip here need not worry. Just send them on in, and The Brevard v ,'.ts will mail them direct to Santa Claus. after we have published them in i!"- paper. There are many letters in today's paper from our little [rivr.ds, and we shall be glad to pub lish. all others that are sent in. Do' wait too long, however, for the ?earlier yoyr letters come in, the earli er they can be mailed to Santa. Grown-ups should delight in help ing thi' little fellows in the enjoyment of '.(* season. It will do the grown jr.afc about as much good as the little ones derive from it. Let's get out of the old dried-up shell, and have a real Christmas this year. One Year . . .

We're telling you again that the only question con fronting the citizens here in the fu ture is that of taking care of the people who come to this section. Vireenville and upper South Carolina alone will send enough people to Bre vard next summer to fill every house a ii.i room now available. That leaves no provision for the care and enter tainment, of those who come from other sections? and they will be le sion. us not be too slow in rec ngnfeing the full meaning to this sec tion of all the good road work now being done. With th opening of the Brevard-Greenville highway, and the coming of another Springtime, the march to the mountain will begin ir earnest. Then, on the other hand, with mil lions of people reading something svecy day about the Great Smoky Mountains, the ceaseless, endless ?chain of automobiles will come into this section from the Central West and the East, and the fame of Pisgah Mountain and the Pisgah National Forest and Caorer's Head will bring them right on into Brevard from that .section. Within a few weeks, No. 2o wilt (*.' completed and that artery will provide another avenue for countless thousands who will pass this way, and be attracted to Brevard, or pass it by, all depending upon what we do right here. Unpainted houses, sagging fences, inkept lawns, automobile boneyards aleug the highway, will drive the toaristsi right on through the town. On the other hand, well kept houses and lawns, clean streets and highways and a spic and span appearance, will cause the tourist to halt and stop a while ? and in the stopping he will ipend some money with somebody in Brevard or in the county. Every flower garden in Brevard nods a wel wme to the visitor, causing many of them to stop and stay a while. And this town has many beautiful flower :C&cden* There ought to be many, criaoy more, however,. We know it to 6*? a fact that many people stop ped in Brevard last summer because ?f the impression made upon them as Uiey entered the town over Highway 28? awt looked Upon the lawn and flower garden at the home of Mrs. Ernest Webb. Brevard people can make no better investment than that of beautifying their premiss. The Woman'a Bureau has long been urg ing this fact upon the citizens here. If we want the people hero we must : be up and doing NOW. We cannot J 1 wait until the camps open and then ; make preparations. Both labor and : ' material can be obtained at low cost j . these days, and good business sug- i c-ests that NOW is the time to plane ; the seed for a bountiful harvest next 1 Spring and Summer. The Lord and the highway force have done their I part. It is now squarely up to us. Let us not wait until the first of June j to take off our red flannels. an alliance that me ass \ MUCH TO THIS COMMUNITY No other small community in all the world's history ever had a "big brother" that meant more to it than Greenville, South Carolina, means to Brevard and Transylvania county, if you will permit us to use the term "big brother." Our people go down from the hills to work in the big fac tories there, and already there is a small army of Transylvania county citizens who have gone down there during the past several years to work in the industrial plants of that sec tion. It is said by many people in Greenville that employers show a marked preference for Transylvania county people when employing new workers. Our farmers and truckers have found Greenville to be their best mar ket for the past hundred years, and millions of dollars worth of produce nnd livestock have been taken from Transylvania county into the Green vi!k' market area. . Numerous citizens of Greenville own summer homes in Transylvania couuty, while great throngs of Green ville people come to these mountains l'or their summer vacation. All these things have been done despite the fact that travel between the two points has been most diffi cult. But now with a paved highway from Brevard to Greenville, bringing the two points within an hour's trav el of one another, who is there with vision sufficiently broad to grasp the full meaning of this new arrange ment? We can see a constant stream of travel between Brevard and Green ville ? our people going down to the big city to sell and to buy, while Greenville people will be coming here to rest and refresh themselves 011 the bosom of God's great hills. It means much to both centers, this op ening of a highway thai calls for but an hour's journey' from one city to the other. It means much in a ma terial way for this community, and we know also that it will mean much to the business life of Greenville. But above all this, great and im portant as it may be, there is still something finer than mere material advancement and profits. There is a strengthening of the bonds of friend ship that have so long existed be tween the people of the two sections; a new baptism in the neighborly spir it; the forming of new acquaintances and the forging of new links of friend ships. Brevard and Transylvania county and all citizens here deeply appreciate this friendship, and ex press profound regard for all Green ville people, their strong Chamber of Commerce and their great newspap ers through which Greenville's regard for her neighbor of the hills is so eloquently and beautifully expressed. TALK ABOUT THE Y. M. C. A. Editor The Brevard News: Please allow me a few lines in your valuable paper to give vent to my feeling after reading in The Citizen if November 30th, the sermon of Dr. Owens of the First Baptist church, of Asheville. Things that happened (luring the World War come to my memory. But first I want to say that the founder of the Y. M. C. A. cer tainly started a great and wonderful organization, but as far as it being any assistance or comfort to the boys in the A. E. F., especially in the front lines, they were a "blank;'' they, simply were not there, but back in , the S. 0. S. they were as thick as j M. P.'s and one thing that Dr. Owen ' should explain is why was it at dif ferent and various places when boys , would buy whole cartons of cigarettes ] and on opening same would find that they were donated by some organize- 1 tion back home for the boys in the A. E. F. ? a plain case of stealing. Now I know of several instances like I have just mentioned and I know of many former soldiers who will tes- . tify to the same, or worse. And moreover about the time the i war was over, there was an enormous fund raised in the U. S. A. for the different charitable organizations and who got the largest part of that huge , fund? The Y. M. C. A. The Red Cross gets my dues every year ; the Salvation Army gets a piece of money every time they come around, and if the K. of C. ever need it, I'll help them; if the Jewish Wel fare Board ever needs it, I will help j them, but if any one wants to make | me sick, yes soul-sick, just suggest , that I contribute t^the Y. M. C. A. J for there are many instances of men ' going to them in time of need, dead broke, no place to sleep and they were turned out in the cold. Did you ever ^ear of ativ charitable organization doing such? Not th3 Salvation Army; not the Red Cross: but the Y. M. C. A. did that very thing many, ' many times during the war. And would do the very same today. I ! don't want to contradict Dr. Owens, j but I must say that the feeling that j the boys of the A. E. F. had for the ' Y. M. C. A. was one that no true j citizen can ever forget. So it is no ? wonder that the Community Chest drive come up short, in Asheville, for men who saw what the Y. M. C. A. did for our country are not going to give money to any such organization when they know their history.. Not twelve years after, not twenty four years after, but turn all your Chest funds over to the Salvation Army, Red Cross, and other organi zations who were honorable during the World War, and then watch them go over the "Top." Yes, they will give until it hurts. G. F. WOODFIN. Brevard, N. C. Dec. 1st, 1931 WELCOME HOME Editor, The Brevard News: For some time we have not been I taking The Brevard News.

Chase City, Va., Nov. 28. I NAMING THE PEAKS Asheville, Dec. 2 ? Sifting the tra ditions of the mountaineers and of the Cherokee Indians to discover the names for over 100 peaks and ridges | and for a numbcjr of streams in the newly created Great Smoky Moun tains National Park, a special nom enclature committee is laboring at the task ?>f having the landmarks of the new national playground definitely designated for the benefit of the horde of tourists expected to flow into this scenic region within the next few years. i Centuries of isolation and the un- ; usual number of high mountains in the terrain of the park, have combin ed to produce a confusion of names ; and many duplicate designations. A 1 number of the outstanding elevations [ are unnamed. The committee in charge of finding the right names is composed of men selected from both North Carolina and Tennessee, with Paul Fink, of Jonesboro, Tenn., as chairman. Verne Rhoades, of Ashe ville, is chairman of the North Caro lina group. The members of the two groups met in Knoxville, Tenn., re cently to forward the work of naming mountains. Many of the names being applied to peaks and streams, by the committee have been discovered by the help of the comparative few who are familiar with the region, the lumbermen, hunt ers, explorers and Indians who have ventured into the region, before its ' designation as a national playground. Even the maps of the section have been found to be incorrect by the U. S. Geological Survey. The Survey has recently completed a correct topogra phical map of the park. Some of the names are of Indian origin, dating back to before the day of white conquest. These names have been supplied by members of the Eastern Band of Cherokees, 3,000 in number, living on their reservation which borders the North Carolina boundary of the National Park. One or two of ?hese peaks have been nam ed after men who worked in the inter est of the establishment of the Na tional Park, these including Mount Kephart, named for the late Horace Kephart, of Bryson City, N. C., and Mount Chapman designated in honor ? of Col. C. D. Chapman, of Knoxville, i Tenn. 1 A /portrait of George and Martha |1 Washington was recently found in a ' gajuvt in Springfield, 111. i MODEW ETIQUETTE j 1 ?
