Four hundred men were drawn by lot, and given permission T-o kill one deer each, with the government exercising complete power ever the regulations of the hunt. These four hundred men will , be accompanied by others, an<l this i within itself >vill serve as a great | advertisement for this county. The ! papers throughout Eastern America are carrying daily news uf the acti- ' vities of the hunters, all f.f which is considered most valuable publicity. Perhaps the most important pub- j licity, certainly the most valuable, will come after the close of the hunt ing period. The United States gov ernment, with the management of i the wild life department, is having complete raotion pictures made of the hunt. These pictures, made pri marily for the extension work in col leges and universities, will also be shown in many theatres throughout, the country.

RAMSEY 'BROADCASTS STORY OF COUNTY'S GROWTH ! And Describes The Beauties | I Abounding In This Community > ! RECORD OF PAST IS BASIS FOR ITS FUTURE Radio Audience Of WWNCj ! Hears Most Eloquent Cotsaty j Appeal Mayor Ralph H. Ramsey, Jr., in j an address over radio station WWNCj Sunday night, paid a tribute to Tran- j sylvania county that only one who j kr.ows his e'ounf.y and who has its ' interests at heart, could possibly pay. ] His speech was in connection with a j series of similar talks being heard j over this station each Sunday night, j describing the counties of Western North Carolina. His speech follows: Ralph H. Ramsey, Jr., of Brevard,! spoke last night over radio station WWNC on Transylvania county, in one of the series of talks on western North Caroling counties which are being broadcast each Sunday night. Mr. Ramsey described the scenic attractions, industries, agriculture, and other features of the county. Transylvania offers special attrac tions to the tourists, he said, as it is part of Pisgah National forest, it has many summer camps for boys and girls, and has some strikingly beau tiful scenery. His address follows: "Transylvania County is grateful to the Citizen Broadcasting company for the opportunity afforded through this series of weekly broadcasts of learning more about our sister coun ties in Western North Carolina, and of telling you tonight some of the {Continued on Back Page) ANOTlR CAR LOAD OF FLOUR RECEIVED Transylvania's consignment of ai carload of Red Cross Flour has been j received and is ready for distribution ? to the indigent families of the coun- . ty. Distribution is to be under the: direction of Joseph S. Silversteen, chapter chairman. fho central distribution depot is J in Brevard and operating ir. the va- j rious communities are other depots' located in Pisgah Forest, under su- 1 pervision of Bob Mackey; Rosman, in! charge of Craig Whitmire and Lake' Toxaway in charge of W. H. Arro-j wood. ! As in the past this flour will be! issued only on orders of committees in charge of the relief work in the county. This is the third consign ment received in Transylvania coun ty within the past few months and it has been a Godsend to many desti tute families throughout the county. DOGS NOT PROPERLY j TAGGED TO BE KILLED The board of aldermen met Mon-j day evening at the City Hall for | their regular monthly session. The only matter of moment other than the regular routine business was the order passed that all dogs on the streets of Brevard after December 15 without the city dog license tag will be killed by the town authorities. If I you have paid your license be sure that the tag is kept on the dog or it will be impossible for the authori ties to determine whether or not the tax has been paid. Whiskey Drinking Since the Election Shows Shocking Increase, Bost Says Effort will be made in the Janu ary session of the North Carolina legislature to repeal the Turlirigton prohibition laws. During tha recent campaign, Hon. Jake JT. Newell and other speakers oft?fc asserted that this move would - be m$a&, but little thought was given to t^fi^tatements. They were brand, ed aa political propaganda, because Mr. Newell was such an ardent dry, and was leading the Republican cam paign in the state. . Already report? aro coming from Raleigh that recently elected mem -bers of the legislature are "feeling out" the sentiment, and are embol dened by the results of the recent election that they will be safe in of fering repeal measures for the Tur lington law, the state's own prohi bition law. Whether the bill wocid D&sa or not is, of course, problematical, yet there are many men who predict such of the measure, if it is offered. If offered, it will be in the nature of a revenue-producing movement. Bat there ia one chance of ito failure, ^ and that is the way the lickeritea have been openly drinking liquor since the election.

There is no way' ?to placate public opinion unless this, is done. Anybody with as much sense as a fried oyster knows that the luxury or the sales tax in Hsu of the 15 cents ad valorem tax would have left the state in worse financial plights than it is now. but the strength of the sales taxera of both; kinds is that the state did not adopt ? their plan and did employ the ad| valorem- method of raising about I $4,000,000.

But their plight is vastly worse when it is considered that , 'hey owe $67,000,000 more. The j counties do not come of the agri I cultural east alone or the mountain-' j oua west.
