With all the talk about high prices, it may seem foolish to ask if food should be cheap The answer is not as obvious as it may seem. It depends on what we mean by cheap. If by cheap, we mean that food should be produced and marketed as efficiently as possible and sold at the lowest price that will yield a reasonable profit for producers and marketing firm, then food should be cheap. If, on the other hand, by the word cheap we mean that everyone in the food industry should operate at a loss so that everyone else can afford to buy T-bone steaks, then why should food be that cheap? Food is essential to life, but so is clothing and shelter in most areas of the world. In a society such as ours, one might argue that transportation is also essential. However, style changes in clothes make costly wardrobes outdated long before they are worn out. And certainly not everyone can afford tailor made suits and original design gowns. Neither can everyone afford an expensive house on a hill surrounded by five acres of landscaped scenery, or a large super-deluxe automobile. Society does not seem concerned about these "problems." It reasons that not everyone should necessarily be able to afford a luxury car, wear expensive clothing, or live in a mansion As long as the essential needs of the not-so-rich are met, society is satisfied. But when it comes to food, values are different. If the price of steak goes up, there is a cry that poor people are going to starve. Everyone seems to be entitled to eat steaks and chops, and if they can't, it is. a "national disgrace " Maybe everyone should be able to eat steak. But if they should, shouldn't they also be able to have expensive clothes, houses and cars? It is not the value system that is questionable, it is the inconsistency of values that appears to be questionable N.C.

Your distribution of publicity, when we were planning and making our initial labor survey of Madison County and the surrounding area, made that undertaking successful. So the seed was planted that bore the fruits of the location, construction and, finally, the opening of our new, modern plant in Mars Hill. Your latest contribution in announcing the actual opening of this plant on July 9, 1973 is truly appreciated. I am certain that you must join us at Shadow line in deriving a great sense of personal satisfaction in seeing a beginning plan become a reality. Yes, you were present and participated at the very outset.

He was introduced by Mrs. James Story, program leader. While a youngster in Sylva where he was born, Terrell gave thought to becoming a gospel singer, but he could also write and he chose to become a writer. Following graduation from Western Carolina University he took a job on The Asheville Citizen and is now associate editor of the Citizen-Times. His daily column is read by thousands in his native North Carolina and beyond, and it is Terrell upon whom the Citizen calls to cover the activities of the area's No. 1 resident, Billy Graham. A close follower of gospel music through the years it the Editor stated, "I hope you people are serious in your intentions. The people of Madison are tired and frustrated from continual surveys by industry with no results." At that time, Mr. Jim Field and I assured you that not only were our in tentions but our motives were absolutely sincere. So, on the first Monday of July, 1972 Shadow line, In corporated accepted the responsibility of joining the communities of Mars Hill and Madison County as a cor porate citizen. 1 Speaking on behalf of Mr. Salsbury, the President of Shadowline, Incorporated, this responsibility is accepted and we will make every effort to live up to the expectations of the people of Mars Hill and Madison County. May I add that Mr. Thomas Stuping, the Plant Manager of the Mars Hill plant, will continue to need the support of the people and leaders of Mars Hill, Madison County and the surrounding area, as well as your paper, in recruiting and hiring qualified people to accomplish our systematic plan for controlled consistent program of employment, training and growth of the work force. Again, thank you for your many considerations.; I remain with warmest personal regards Sincerely, -8- Arthur T.

The book authored by Terrell is titled "J. D. Sumner ..Gospel Music is My Life," which he discussed at the Book Club meeting. He told of how the book was written in five days' time after talking with Mr. Sumner and several days of recording sessions. "J D. Sumner" was born in Lakeland, Fla. and has devoted almost his whole life to singing gospel songs. The book is a good history of the development of this form of entertainment in the U S Sumner had his ups-and-downs as a professional singer and his really big-time career began in 1954 when lie joined the Blackwood Brothers Quartet, with whom he remained fro 11 years He is now with the Stamps Quartet Terrell said writing the book "was an easy task.
