Bishop Clare" "Pii rcolf bf'Ch a rlof le ,' 'prea ch - ed before an audience estimated between 7 and 900 people from the Lake Junaluska Assembly pul pit at the annual observance of Haywood County Day, Sunday morning. Dr. W. K. Greene, president of WofTord College, Spartanburg, de livered the principal address dur ing the afternoon. Dr. Walter West of Waynesville, presided during the morning service and R. L. Cole man of Canton, in the afternoon. All Methodist churches in the county were represented in the attendance, and visitors enjoyed a picnic on the grounds'at noon. Commenting on the fact that in the Christian calendar the date commemorated "Pentecost Sun day,'" which, coming fifty days after the Resurrection, celebrated the birthday of the Christian Church, Bishop Purcell called for a repetition of Pentecost in the life of the modern church. The church in this modern age he said. must achieve unity or perish. Using as a texr passage from Acts 2:1-8. the speaker related the Bible story of how the Apostles were "all with one accord in one place," and how "they were all filled with the Holy Ghost." "A common danger," he said, "had drawn them together and they were then held together by a deep sense of kinship. A common ex perience made them love one another; they had all seen the risen Lord; a common testimony made them one family; their witness was the resurrection. "The church of this modern day." he continued, "must have something of this sense of unity which always follows great dan gers, great experiences and great joys. "In this atomic age the church of Jesus Christ must realize its essential unity or perish. How can we Christians demand a UNITED NATIONS when we have never achieved a UNITED CHURCHES? We must set about realizing the principles of Jesus as the vertable law of life without which life can not continue in this world. "Pentecost today for Christians not only means a new spirit of unity but it means a new spirit of power. The promise of Jesus to His disciples, 'Ye shall receive power' was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost and the record shows that they received power to per form many mighty acts. Pentecost for today should mean that mil lions of people who are now only nominal Christians enjoy the pow er of ivictory over temptation and sin. 'Pentecost for today means a new spirit of courage among Chris tians. The disciples spoke the word of God with boldness.

I Leo Weill, president of the Wellco I Shoe Corporation told The Moun taineer this week, following an ad dress Friday before the Rotary Club, in which he pointed out the steady growth of his firm in Way nesville. "Due to the lack of adequate? housing, we cannot bring in the technicians we would need if we would expand at this time. In fact, we are having difficulties getting living quarters for many key men already here," Mr. Weill explained. The firm recently purchased the former Erkraft building on Georgia Avenue, in Hazelwood, and have bought 1 1 acres across the highway rom the Dayton Rubber Manufac turing plant in Hazelwood, as a site for their proposed new plant. In his address before the Rotary Club last Friday, Mr. Weill said that 90 per cent of the 296 em ployees are women. The firm began operations here in March, 1911 with 16 people, and a payroll of $300 weekly. In Sep tember of the same year the plai;t was employing 120 people and mak ing 1,500 pairs of shoes a day, with a weekly payroll of $1,800. "Today there are 296 people em ployed, making an average of 5, 500 pairs of shoes daily, and a weekly payroll of $11,000," Mr. Weill said. "I am sure that with our future plans, in a few short years from now, our present figures of pro duction will be doubled to the bene fit of this entire section," Mr. Weill concluded. Mr. Weill traced the history of shoe manufacturing, and pointed out the increased national produc tion of shoes, showing that in 1902 the average person bought 2 93 pairs per year, and in 1940 this figure had increased to 3.06 pairs per year. The present rate of pro duction will exceed tlie 1940 level, speaker said, and every indication is that 500 million pairs of shoes and slippers will be made in this country in 1946. Wellco Shoes are made on hot electrical units, and are finished within one hour after they are started in the cutting room. Dur ing the war the firm produced about two million pairs of hospital slippers, in addition to a large volume of leggings.
