This would indicate that now is the time for our dairymen and those contemplating getting into the milk producing business to expand . . . and that is exactly what we mean. At the same time a serious over-supply of milk is occurring with the firm now supplying most of the milk consumed in Sylva, the county schools, and at Western Carolina Teachers College. This same firm has been buying most of the raw milk produced by Jackson dairymen, processing it, and bringing it back, or other milk in its place, to be consumed here; Our farm leaders and county dairymen, foreseeing the possibility of a curtailment of the market for their raw milk brought about by the milk brought in irom other counties, have taken action and have secured an outlet for their milk, provided the people of the county, will buy this processed milk. A. B. Slagle of the Nantahala Creamery at Franklin will -- 11- 1 J U.. Duy t!16 raw miiK, pruuuv;cu \jy o ativauii County farmers and will deliver pasteurized milk to the homes and business places in the county daily, beginning March 1st. / >. Jackson County milltf"usert& are urged to buy their milk from the Nantahala firm in order to further the dairy industry in Jackson county. There is hardly anyone in the county who does not want to see more farm and industrial income in the county. Patronizing Jackson County milk producers is one way to help increase Jhis income. o Bondage In The Name Of Liberty In a discussion of the welfare state idea, Dean Russell of the Foundation For Economic Education observed, "The advocates of this compulsory 'security' honestly seem to believe that most Americans . . . are too ignorant, or lazy, or worthless to be trusted with their own destiny; that they will literally starve V w in the streets unless their welfare is guranteed by a 'benevolent' government. However good their intentions may be, these disciples of a Relief State are demanding that they be given the power to force mankind to follow their plans. In the name of liberty they advocate * bondage!'' The complete welfare state must be a slave state. In the early days of this country, when slavery of the Negro existed, Georgia passed laws that guaranteed all slaves "the right to food and raiment, to kind attention when sick, to maintenance in old age ..." The slaves thus were given "security". But they were slaves nonetheless, subject to the unchallengeable orders of their masters. In modern times, we have seen "security" on a far wider scale. In Russia, for instance, everyone is given a place to live q nortain amount to eat and wear. CU1U U VM?.. ? They are given a minimum of state medi. cal care. They are "guaranteed" employment, and, of course, the state determines where, when and for how long they shall work, and how much they GOALS FOR 1950 (1)?new industry. (2)?improved school facilities.

THE Pine Creek Goes Forward The citizens of the Pine Creek community made a big step forward Monday night when they met and organized an area development program and elected officers to carry on the work. A. C. Edwards was elected chairman of the committee, Fred J. Brown, vice chairman and Mrs. Pearl Stewart, secretary. An article elsewhere in this issue of The Herald states the purpose of the program and the goals it hopes to attain. This community is to be commended for leading the way in this type of community work. We expect to see many more communities of Jackson County follow these wide awake Pine Creek citizens. O 9 Why Advertise? Advertising should be expanded rather than curtailed in times of recession, Paul G. Hoffman, UJconomic uo-operauon Administrator, told the Sales Executives club of New York recently. Linking the United , States business situation to the cold war, Mr. Hoffman declared, Editor & Publisher reports, that an economically strong America is a bulwark in the defense against totalitarianism. "I don't need to tell you," he said, "that when it comes to a cut in the budget, almost the first item on the list is advertising. When sales start going off is no time to let up on advertising. If we meet our responsibilities, that is obviously the time to expand." "At the present time," he added, "such expansion is not only significant in the marketplace; it has political significance of great moment indeed, because this recession has started to recede, and if we ' hit, and hit hard now, the recession upon which the Russians have been counting will not come off." ' American business, said Mr. Hoffman, has a "unique advantage" in the range and effectiveness of its advertising media as compared with those in European nations, "but these instrumentalities will not be effective unless they are employed." o Supporting Our Band This newspaper has carried numerous editorials and news stories concerning our school band, urging everyone to support the band in order that we might have a creditable organization. This is to again urge as many as can to hear the band in concert Friday, March 3, when it plays a special benefit performance in order to raise funds for a much needed bass horn. We feel that our people now need little urging to support the band, merely to suggest attending and you will. The performances given by the band since last September amply prove that it is a big asset to the community and has its place in the promotion of our community just as much as any other organization. The boyS and girls, under Director Ben Cole, are developing into a fine band and we expect to hear much from them in the future. o YOU'RE TELLING ME! In a political speech there was a reference to "the stage-coach of history." Now don't tell us Hopalong Cassidy is running for office! f f r That Canadian town recently re-namec Enchant is isolated by a blizzard. High time the Chamber of Commerce and the weatherman got together. ! f ? A Central European country asks foi a loan?a measly five million.

But the people are slaves, just as the Negroes were ir the America of a century ago. They d( what they are told, or else. The welfare state regards everyone ai a ward of the government. There are those in our own governmeni who are now working hard to sew the seeds of the welfare state here through public medicine, housing, banking power development, farming, etc. * + TLVA HERALD AND RURA horn'oi r, -v . ^ .'V- c -if W -t ^-r^- ? > .--*--iV - -<i - - The Everyda; By REV.

He * * r xi XT l T? 101a a meeung 01 me nauundi m- ^ dustrial Conference board: "We are chasing a mirage of easy money in the form of deficit dollars flowing through expanding ] Federal programs which are undermining the will of individuals, { regimenting the production of agriculture and labor, controlling ; the practices of business, cur- ' tailing the sovereignty of states, ' and reducing the self-determination privileges traditional in our local government. "Make no mistake. It is social' ism which lies at the end of this 1 rainbow .... As we stand tolay there are 100 different programs , spreading put from among 60 principal Federal departments and agencies (with a thousand units), and the President has just an nounced that payments to the pubi lie through the programs this year wil total $47,500,000,000. "Seventeen million individuals are now receiving regular direct payments from the Federal government, and government pay, ments to business are equal to [ more than half of corporate profits after taxes are paid. "If we like what we see in Engj lish socialism, we are justified in stuffing ourselves with gratuities 1 from a paternal central govern ment until we bankrupt the greatest nation in history. "If socialism is what we want r there are three more Federal proj grams pending in Congress at this moment which, if enacted, will ir' revocably commit us to a state of socialism from which there is no retreat." He said that these are t more socialized housing, socialized medicine, and the farm subsidy plan proposed by the Secretary of Agriculture.

CAN YOU REMEMBER? 5 Years Ago? Mrs. David Cagle has returned to her home after visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Wild in Jonesboro, N. C. Mrs. Wild is improving toiiowing an operation. Pfc.

Coming from the one man who probably knows more about the subject than any other single individual, this it not idle talk. It is a serious and solemn warning. Concerning the public debate over whether the hydrogen bomb should be made, this wry parody of Churchill's famous remark may be made: Never have so many known so little about so much.? St. Star-Times. Spectacular Results Newton Enterprise The remarkable record made in the 1950 March of Dimes Campaign in Catawba county merits a post script to previous comment in this column. Donations totaling over six thousand dollars over the quota given in the campaign make headline news. But it is spectacular news when the quota is as large as that assigned Catawba county?twenty-five thousand dollars. The county organization that produced these results and all who aided, through ^ime, talents and money are to be congratulated. Chairman Hubert Kelly of the county campaign is due a hearty "well done" from all citizens for the manner in which he led ^the county to successful completion of the drive. Our 'Campaign' Problem Ashevllle Citizen Appointment of a committee of seven persons to draft a plan for regulating solicitations in Buncombe County is a long step toward correcting an unhealthy siti loUftn in this rnmmunitv?the tireless and demanding round of "drives." There were 70 of them last year, some legitimate, some dubious, and nearly all of them failures. The Citizen hazards the gu?ss that the community at large and certainly the major givers in Asheville and Buncombe would support a Board of Review to pass on campaigns and screen out the undesirable ones.

The result is that the important causes and projects suffer badly. It is safe to say that tens of thousands ^ of dollars leave the community every year to serve no worthy purpose whatever. Much, too much, of the "giving" game is a simple form of racketeering. The community could put its foot down on this unsavory business if it wished. Thus we look forward to the recommendations of the committee of seven named by a number of civic agencies to get at the root of campaigning and bring it in line with Asheville's capacity to give. Other cities have found this procedure to be the only rpmpHv which would really work. Some of our People's Opinions , What's yours?
