W THE WOMAN'S LEAGUE
I OR REPEAL NON PART I SAN t
Announcement in Wedneaday'a
Ashevillo Citizen that "Repeal Week"
will be observed next week, beginning
Wednesday, is interesting. Statement
is made in the announcement that a
"drive" for new members and con
tributions will be made. Further
statement is that the organization of
women, under Mies. Sourne and Mrs.
Mclnturff, "is non-partisan."
Is it non-partisan?
If it is non-partisan, why did Rob
ert R. Reynolds, candidate for the
United States Senate on a wet plat
form, make all the arrangements for
the appearance here a few weeks ago
i>f Mrs. Mclnturff and former Con
gressman John H. Small? It is said
that Mr. Reynolds is the gentleman
who called ladies of Brevard, and
made arrangements for the repealers,
pleading with this one and that one
to act as chairman of the meeting and
introduce the speakers who were com
ing here under auppice3 of this same
woman's league which is now de
clared to be "non-partisan."
Looks to us like this league is moat
partisan ? in Mr. Reynold's behalf. If
not, why is that gentleman taking the
lead in making the dates for the
speakers who go out for the league.
Senator Morrison is also candidate
for re-nomination and re-election. He
is not in favor of repeal, and he is
not making dates for Mrs. Mclnturff,
John Small, and so on. Tain Bowie is
a candidate for nomination, running
against Mr. Reynolds. He is not mak
ing any dates for the Mclnturff
group. Frank D. Grist is also a can
didate against Mr. Reynolds. He is
not making dates for the Mclnturff
group of repealers. Mr. Reynolds is
the only avowed "wet" candidate
among the Democratic aspirants to
the Senatorship, and he is the only
one of the number engaged in calling
over long distance telephone, urging
first this person end then another, to
sponsor these wet meetings.
Far be it from us to dispute the
word of a woman, but when the state
ment is made that the league is non
partisan while Capt. Bob Reynolds is
doing the stage directing, there is at
least a very serious doubt created in
the mind of the average laymen as
to the accuracy of the statement.
HIGHWAY 284 PROMISES
MUCH FOR THIS SECTION.
Brevard is not alone in appreciat
ing the promises of increased busi
ness as a result of competition of
Highway '284. Waynesville sees good
business for that section coming by
way of this popular route. The
Waynesville Mountaineer, always
alert tc the advancement of llaywood
county, in speaking of this route this
When Highway 284 is paved, lead
ing into Waynesville from Brevard
and South Carolina, we will be con
nected with the section of the country
from where most al! the tourists
come, South Carolina, Georgia and
Florida. This new improved highway
will save approximately 70 miles for
the tourists and will bring them over
one of the most beautiful scenic high
ways east of the Rockies.
Waynesville is destined to become
the highway center of Western North
Carolina. We already have Highway
No. 10, "Main Street of North Caro
lina," passing through here. When
Highway No. 284 is paved and the
Soco Gap road completed into the
park, with Highway No. 209, which
leads to Knoxville, and has always
proved to bo a popular drive with the
tourists, these highways are certain
to aid in bringing many tourists to
Very few cities the size of Way
nesville can boast of as many leading
highways entering and passing
through their city as can Waynesville.
Where there are lots of good roads
and scenery as found in and near
Waynesville the tourists will be found
in large numbers.
Ruffin Wilkins is telling of a good
customer who came into the Blue Bird
last Saturday, ate 20 cones of cream,
one after another, and then called for
a pint of cream to take along with
him, to eat on the way home. And
that's the ice cream eating record.

Better do all you can for the trolf
course. You may not play golf, but
the fact remains that your summer
tourist business depends largely upon
golf. Not many people are going to a
resort town where there is no golf
course. There is direct connection be
tween the golf course here and your
business, that is, if you hope to do
business with the summer tourist.
Summer is upon us. Have you writ
ten to any of the people who were last
year, or the year before, asking them
to return to Brevard for the summer?
There is no other method quite so ef
fective as direct personal appeal to
the summer tourist. You can help
yourself and your city by taking the
time to write a few letters to the
people who have been with you be
