People Get, Card
And Plan To Come
Here For Vacation
Just how good the sale of the
5,000 post cards of local scenes
did cannot be estimated, but in
the case of Lebo Massie, it was
a way of finding out that some
people intended coming here
whether that card was the cause
or not is not known.
Mr. Massie m iiled some of his
cards to Texas to some friends,
and several days latter received
word that they would be here in
August to spend some time.
The members of the publicity
committee of the Chamber of
Commerce who sponsored the
movement, were all well pleased
at the response.

Large Crowd Heard Mr.
Daniels At Lake Sunday
Daniels, United States ambassador
to Mexico, was the principal speaker
here Sunday at the opening session of
the annual Southern Methodist church
Haywood County day was celebrat
ed at the assembly Sunday, and Am
bassador : Haniels.' address was the
third he has delivered on this occa
sion at Lake Junaluska. Mr. Maniels
and family have for years spent part
of each summer at. their cottage on
Lake JJunaluska, and he has come
to be regarded as a resident of Hay
wood county as well as Wake county.
Mr. Daniels divided his address into
two parts. In the first part he dis
cussed the duty of the church in the
program of recovery in a changing
world, and in the second part he spoke
on . the growing interest in the In
dian and his advancement in the wes
tern hemisphere, particularly in Mex
ico where the Indians comprise three-
fourths of the population and are
obtaining increased participation in
the government of their country. i
The Mexican ambassador oecian-u
that mora! collapse preceded-' the fi
nancial debacle'. in America.' ."It wag
the. bankruptcy of character .rather
than the economic debacle, that de
stroyed faith and spread disaster.
Spiritual bankruptcy led the way to
the economic overthrow," Mr. Maniels;
He said the church should fear a
return'" of the sort of prosperity, which
brings a mad rush for inordinate
pi ofit ',', There; can be no good perma
nent social -order that is not based
on a sound, mora and Christian foun
dation, the ambassador declared.
Mr. Daniels emphasized that the
church fell short of it's duty when if
did not "cry aloud against the-frenzied
finance which produced the pan
ic" and urged the church leaders and
members to stand militantly for the
practical adoption of the Golden Rule
as made applicable to present day
problems in the social creed of the
churches, as adopted by the Federal
Council of Churches of Christ in
"It embraces the most equitable
