ON BUYING TRIP
Mrs. C. J- Reece is in Atlanta
attending the Southeastern Travel
er's Exhibition, wh.re she if buy
ing merchandise for Massie's De
partment Store. She returned last
week from a buying trip in New
(Special to The Mountaineer')
Raleigh. Glenn C. Palmer, rep
resentative from Haywood county
in the legislatures of 1939, 1941,
and 1943, is in line for the chair
manship of the House Committee
on Agriculture for the 1945 session
of the General Assembly, it was re
ported here yesterday.
Palmer .one of the business lead
ers in Haywood, served on 18
different committees while in the
legislature last year, and was
something of a leader in at least
half the meetings held by these
groups for legislative planning.
Due to the fact, however, that
Palmer has had broad experience
in dairying and general farming,
he is now being spotted as the man,
for the agricultural group, and
agricultural leaders throughout
North Carolina, it is said, will do
everything possible to place him in
a position where he can do some
thing for the farmers of this State.
Palmer, it is recalled was one
of the most popular members of
the 1943 legislature and was a
familiar figure at all sessions of the
If he is made chairman of the
agriculture committee, legislative
leaders see for it a place of real
prominence next year'.

Tost War Programs Dis
cussed By A. L. Freed
lander and Malcolm A ins
worth. Almost 300 people filled the
Hazelwood school cafeteria to
capacity Thursday night for what
is considered in all quarters as the
best Chamber of Commerce meet
ing held here in years.
The address of A. L. Freedlan
der, president and general mana
ger of the Dayton Rubber Mau
facturing Company on post war
planning, was a highlight of the
meeting, followed by an equally
stirring address by Malcolm Ains
worth, general manager of the
Asheville Chamber of Commerce
on. "Visitors in the post war Era."
The high school orchestra, under
the direction of Charles Isley, got
the 300 patrons off to a good start
with music that compared favorab
ly with that of "large-name" bands.
During his address, Mr. Freed
landcr pointed out the need for
individual post war planning, as
well as that of business firms. He
stressed the importance of a well
planned program that would fit
into the economic "climate" of the
post war period.
Mr. Freedlander was presented
by Jonathan Woody. The indus
trial leader said in part:
"To my mind, free enterprise is
going to bo put on trial, and it is
up to us to see if by proper post
war planning we cannot solve the
problem. Some people have thought
that winning the war is our first
consideration. Of course it is, but
many others undoubtedly the ma
jority of thinking people feel that
winning the war and winning the
peace are parts of the same prob
lem. "I am your friend and neighbor,
because eventually I hope to make
my home in Haywood County and
spend the rest of my days here. I

"The goal of the individual
worker in the hospital is 'to cure
sometimes, to relieve often and to
comfort always'," was the closing
remarks of Mrs. Evelyn Osborne,
superintendent of the Haywood
County Hospital, as she addressed
the Rotary Club last Friday, and
urged more civic interest be taken
in the affairs of the institution.
"If it is not something to
apologize for, a community hospital
is something to be proud of as
evidence that the community has
achieved stability and foresight,
and as insurance against disaster.
Even if we never expect to need
the services of a hospital ourselves,
we think there should be a place
where the woman next door or the
child down the street may be taken
when the need arises.
"The present excessive demand
for hospital beds is due largely to
three conditions: First, the large
number of women working away
from home; second, the nation-wide
acceptance of hospital insurance
and last but not least, the conven
ience of the doctors.
"The patient's need creates the
hospital and dominates it, taking

"Sgt. Moody paid a great price
that we as a free people might
continue to enjoy all those things
that make life worth living. By
that he showed his intense love for
us: 'Greater love than this no man
hath, that a man lay down his life
for his friends.' Our nation, nay
our very civilization, is deeply in
d bted to him; a debt we can never

mercy has given bun the reward
he so well deserves.

y autifully located cemetery that
is kept spick and span. Full
Military honors and religious ser
vices conducted by myself, were
rendered at his graveside. I am
not allowed to divulge any infor
