Total Vote More Than 10,600 Here In Haywood County All Five Ammendments Pass In State; Election Here Was Unusually Quiet Haywood county voters gave President Roosevelt a total of 7, 776 votes against 2,917 cast for Mr. Dewey in the election on Tuesday, making a vote of two and one half to one and a majority of 4,859 in favor of the winning candidate, according to an unofficial canvass made by The Mountaineer of the vote from each of the 22 precincts in the county. The vote was one of the largest ever polled in the county and was around 4,000 more than the ma jority of the political leaders of the county had predicted. The most optimistic had stated that a 10,000 vote would be possible, but none prophesied over that figure, Haywood's record breaking vote is in keeping with the national 50 million vote that gave President Roosevelt more than 400 electoral votes with returns incomplete. Haywood kept pace with the state majority, with all state Demo cratic candidates leading with big majorities over their Republican opponents. An analysis of the votes cast in Haywood county would indicate that there were more Republicans who voted r President Roosevelt for a f out . term than for Mr. Dewey fot a first term, despite numerous predictions to the- con trary. The vote in the state also reflected the trend in the national poll, with the President's over whelming majority. All five constitutional amend ments were given a large vote, going over with a big majority, t'rtkjcie Interest In the outcJ than Had been anticipated by -leaders prior to the election. Mis. H. C. Ferguson left Tues day for Washington, D. C, where ihe will visit her daughter, Miss Blanche Ferguson, and her grand daughter, Miss Doris Grahl.

"More than any other one man," said Dr. Quillian in announcing the donation, "Bishop Atkins had the vision for the assembly, and he largely selected the location. It is fitting that his home overlooking the lake, should now be set apart not only as a memorial but as a place of service to the assembly. Friends of Junaluska everywhere will join in expressing thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Atkins for this beautiful home."
