LESSON OF FRANKENSTEIN
MAKES GREAT IMPRESSION
Those people of the community who
saw the showing of Frankenstein at
the Clemson last week, (and nearly
everybody saw it) pronounced it one
of the greatest lessons ever presented
on the silvery screen. The young
scientist who made a man from the
several parts of other human forms
succeeded all right, up to a certain
point. Beyond that he could not go.
He fashioned the form of a human
being and, through aid of Nature's
elements, the form took on life, and
grew into a monster of powerful
But the scientist could, not create
a conscience for his pet scheme, nor
was he able to endow it with a soul.
Its strength was immeasurable; its
reason a blank. One day this monster
turned upon its maker, and crushed
How true to life is this story of
Frankenstein! How many bankers
there are in these United States to
day who created monsters in the form
of financial institutions which turned
upon their creators and crushed
them! The banker who started in to
build up an institution which would
place him in an impregnable position
of power in the community, reached
out and took parts and portions of
other men's fortunes, and added
these parts together in the construct
ion of his super machine. A mortgage
here, a deed in trust there, stone by
stone the structure grew, but, like
Frankenstein's monster, this institut
ion had no soul, no reasoning power,
no kinship with human things. Then
came the fall of the institution,
crushing its creator in the same
rutMjss manner that Frankenstein's
1 crushed its maker.
may be a business institution
instead of a bank, or a political
machine, or a newspaper, or any
other 2 "HING that man might build
for his own aggrandizement rather
than for the service of humanity.
Germany's kaiser was a Franken
stein in every sense of the word. He
builded a military machine that was,
in his opinion, most perfect. The
kaiser thought is was so perfect that
all the nations of the world could not
conquer "Me and God." But his
monster did fall upon this kaiser, and
crushed him, and drove him, an out
cast, from his once powerful land,
to become a citizen of no man's land.
The billionaires of America have
followed in Frankenstein's footsteps,
and have created and amassed mon
strous fortunes, taking from this man
here, and that woman there, mite by
mite, until the wealth of the nation
is within the hands of a few Franken
siteins. You have to wait only a short
time now until you will witness a far
greater picture on the screen of
every-day life than you saw at the
Clemson last week. You will see these
monstrous fortunes crumble upon the
heads of their creators, and crush
them, and grind them, even as the
grain of corn is ground between the
rocks in the corn mills hereabouts.
All of us, with but. few exceptions,
belong to the Frankenstein school of
thought. A few build institutions for
the good of all mankind; most of us,
however, spend our efforts and our
time in the attempt to build things
for our own glory, benefit and 'profit.
Some of us succeed, even as Franken
stein succeeded, in crieating the form
of our desire, but, having no sub
stance, it soon tumbles over upon us,
to crush us underneath the weight of
size and strength. r

FAVOR OF FARM, PLAN.
Wholehearted support was promised
^ by Western North Carolina editors i
to the 5-10 Year Farm Plan at a 1
banquet held last Friday evening at 1
the George Vanderbilt Hotel, Ashe
ville. The Asheville Citizen and the j
Asheville Times, sponsors of the j
movement, were hosts to the visiting t
newspaper men. 1
Ways and means of assisting in the i
organization and furtherance of the i
plan were discussed by the newspaper <
men, and stress was laid on the fact 1
that the local newspapers could be i
of untold value in disseminating in- 1
formation relative to the movement. i
Transylvania county was represent- >

ASK "RED" MISENHEiMER
ABOUT THE GOOD ROADS.
Men who have been most active in
working for the completion of the
highway system in this community
are glad to talk to "Red" Misenheimer
as to the already increased travel
through here on week-ends. ' Mr.
Misenheimer serviced thirty foreign
cars at his Standard Filling Station
on the Sunday following the celebrat
ion at Caesar's Hear in observance of
completion of highway No. 284.
McGrary's place was busy throughout
the day, and while they kept no
count of foreign cars serviced it is
said that an unusually large number
of such cars stopped there for gas,
oil and repairs. The same is true at
Ed. McCoy's place, fernint the
Baptist church corner. Stations furth
er out in the town also report
exceedingly good business for that
The drug stores felt the increased
business, although the weather was
not such as to create very great
demand for cold drinks at soda
fountains. The restaurants were busy
throughout the day, and Doc Gallo
way says that his place enjoyed
tremendously increased business on
both Sundays since the opening of
All this is only a fore-runner of
what real business is to come to this
town when the trailing arbutus begins
to peep up through its wintery bed of
fallen leaves to announce the first
days of Springtime.
Folks, it's coming, God bless you ?
a volume of business such as you have
never even dreamed about.
DR. LYNCH NOT TO LEAVE
BREVARD, IT IS LEARNED.
Dame Rumor, a very busy lady
these days, had the word going the
rounds that Dr. G. B. Lynch was to
leave Brevard. So often was this
repeated to lis that we inquired of
the good doctor as to the facts in
the case ? and there were no facts.
It was 1 he first that Dr. Lynch had
heard about the matter.
Several weeks ago Dr. and Mrs.
Lynch gave up the Transylvania
Hospital, which they had been
operating for some time. It is believed
that the reports of his leaving here
sprang from their leaving the
hospital. Then, too, Dr. Lynch
resigned as county coroner a few
weeks ago, and this was taken, it is
believed, as further grounds for
circulation of the report.
Dr. Lynch stated that he intends
"to live and die in this good town,''
and his friends hope that this period
will cover many a long year.
STATE LOSING MONEY ON
ACCOUNT OF AUTO TAGS.
North Carolina says to buy your
auto tag for 1932, or store your car.
Well, some people have bought
1932 ? tags, and others ? have stored
North Carolina Highway work
depends upon its <> cents a gallon
gasoline tax almost entirely for funds
in carrying on this work. North
Carolina loses much money every day
any appreciable number of cars are
not on the highways. Take Mecklen
burg county, for illustration. There
are 30,000 cars in that county,
counting all kinds. Only 12,000 had
boutgh 1932 licenses on the 10th. of
the month. That means that 18,000
cars were "parked," until then
owners could scrap up the money with
which to buy tags. Figure up the loss,
if you can, that North Carolina is
taking each day because of these
18,000 cars that are not buying gas.
And there are one hundred counties
in the state, with cfcnditions in each
approximating the conditions in
Doesn't it look liek good business
for the state to arrange some kind of
partial payment for auto tags, say,
a quarter of a year at the time?
CHOSEN LEADERS CANNOT
DO MUCH WITHOUT YOU. .
Regardless of the promise to agri- j
culture contained in the Five-Ten]
Year Plan; regardless of the great]
ability of those people chosen to lead*
the movement here; regardless of
what others may do in other, coun
ties, this fact stares Transylvania
county in the face:
The citizens of the county must
lend their aid and give their support
to the movement, if it is to succeed
Prof. Glazencr,, Prof. Corbin . and j
Mrs. Patton, strong and aggressive j
is they are, can do but little unless!
;he people of the county work with
;hem. The general county committee
s made up of some thirty-odd men
md women representing all sections
>f the county, but even they can dc
>ut little unless ali other citizens
vork for them.
This plan is for the good of the
vhole county, and the citizens of the
vhole county must support the plan
md work together, if the whole cou:;
y is to benefit through its operation.
BREVARD HAS FRIENDS
IN THE PAXTON FAMILY.
Among the many contributing j
factor* to Brevard's ever gro\Ang |
popularity as a resort center there is
none greater, or which gives more
direct results, than the work done by
Mr. and Mrs. Cos Paxton, now living j
in Greenville. Being popular where
evar they go, the Paxtons have made
many friends in Greenville, and it;
is easy to see how extensive their
influence is for this community. This '
writer was in Greenville recently and
many people referred to what the
Paxtons had said about the beauty of !
this section, or that they had "promis
ed the Paxtons'' to visit Brevard.
'Mr. and Mrs. Paxton live next
door to Col. B. H. Peace, owner of
Ths Greenville News and The Green-]
ville Piedmont, and it is safe to say
that many of the beautiful tributes
appearing in the Greenville papers
to the beauty of this section were
inspired by the talks between the
Paxtons and Col. Peace.
Brevard owes much to these good
friends, for they have done much for
- . -i.
WHAT LIARS THESE
WET MORTALS BE!
Senator Bingham, Republican, of
Connecticutt, said in the Senate last
Saturday that legalization of four
per cent beer would "create a billion
dollar industry, raise $40,000,000 in
taxes, and employ thousands of men."
Senator Tyding, Democrat, of
Maryland, said "legalization of beer
would do more to improve conditions
than extending credit through the
President's reconstruction finance
corporation, and would provide work
for 300,000 men and provide $500,
Now, if conditions in this country
are so bad that men cannot buy food,
how in the name of common sense
will the nation consume a billion
dollar's worth of Beer? Who is going
to buy all this beer in sufficient
quantities to bring in a tax to the
government of five hundred million
dollars a year?
Boys, when it comes to using big
figures, these windjammers who are
carrying on the fight for the liquor
interests can $ling the fllang, pnd
limber up on the lingo at any old time.
Mountain resorts will experience
keener competition with the seashore
this coming season than ever before,
says one mountain man who has seen
advance showing of the bathing suits
to be worn in 1932.
