"Sandy" Graham, candidate for governor, spent the most of ilast Thursday in Waynesville, meeting the voters, and getting a line-up on an organization in this county. While here Mr. Graham conferred with a number of prospective county man agers, but gave no indications as to who he would name. Those feeling that they are in line for the place have looked forward to each mail, with the hope that the appointment would be in it, but as far as could be. learned no appointments have been made. Some believe that Mr. Graham will have two managers in Haywood one here and another in Canton. Mr. Graham stopped in town for a short while on his return trip from Macon county Friday, reporting that "everything looks mighty good." Saturday morning the usual inter est that is always created by the first executive meeting of the board of elections ran true to form. Th ap pointments of registrars and judges, however, were not made public until after the election board had met with the board of commissioners. And it might be well to add here, that the new law this year requires that candidates file with the board of elections not later than Saturday, May !Uh at six o'clock. Any mem ber of the board of elections can re ceive the filing fee, according to chair man F. M. Byors. The May term of civil court which convenes here on Monday, May fourth, will likely be the real beginning o po litical activity in Haywood. From V.

Searchers Fail To Find Body Of Baby After River Drained 22-Months-OId Son Of Mr. And Mrs. James Heatherly Was Drowned April 10. Not Found (By Ernest Messer.) The last organized effort to find the body of little Bruce Heatherly, 22-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. James Heatherly, drowned April 10 in the muddy waters of the East Fork of Pigeon River, was made by the Can ton fire department Saturday, when the water was pumped from a deep pond a short distance below where the child fell in the river. Many people expected the body to be found there, but after the water had been pumped out only mud and trash were revealed. If the body was there, it was buried in the soft mud of the river bottom. This futile effort was the last hope of the searchers. Unless the body of the child is brought to the surface by the waters of the river, the lost body will probably never be found." The people of Springdale communi ty, the members of the CCC camp at Sunburst, the fire department and police department of Canton and many others are to be commended for their efforts to find the body of little Bruce. Without remuneration they worked diligently to -reveal" the whereabouts of the drowned boy. Hundreds of people from other communities showed, by their fre quent visits, to the scene of the trag edy, and by their offers to aid in the search their interest in the efforts to rescue the body of the boy, and their sympathy for the Heatherly family. " The fate of the body is now in the embrace of the powerful waters of Pigeon River. '.'which: holds .secrets of many other similar tragedies. Time alone will now accomplish what men have failed to do. Sanitation Survey Now Being Made Of Canton's Watershed Canton Will Get Water From ' Pigeon River When New System Is Installed Representatives of the District Health Department are now at work making a survey of the Canton wa tershed, which is along the east and west fork of Pigeon river all tne way to the Transylvania county line, it was learned from Dr. C. N. Sisk, who is in charge of the department. Bonds have been soid for the new water system for Canton, and the wa ter will be taken from Pigeon river, about three-fourths of a mile from tne city limits, and then filtered and chlo rinated before stored in the new reser voir. .'.:.' Approximately 800 homes are on the watershed that will in the future sup ply Canton, and each of these homes will have to have sanitation facilities that Will meet the requirements of the North Carolina Board of Health. At present sewerage from the county home. Bethel school, New Col lege and other places is put into the river without treatment, and since Canton will get water from the river, all this will have to be treated first, it was pointed out. . Four men will be placed on the job of making the surveys, and it is ex pected that it will take about a week or ten days to complete the survey.
