WAYNESVILLR CHAMBER OF
The regular meeting of the Good
ft llows' Club is to be held next Tues
day and it is planned to have every
member present according to Secre
tary K. K. McGee.
Many members of the Goodfellows
Club and other eivn leaders are inter
ested in the rc-irfranization of the
ChamW of Cnr.imerce lor Waynes
ville with a full-liiiH' paid siiceinry.
Waynesville has a Board of Trade
v.hich is responsible for many pro
gressive achievements during the past
decade. Mr. ICrnest Withers has been
acting' as secretary gratis and he is'
due niiKW praise and in fact the citi
zens of this community are under deep
obligations ngt only to him but the
other officials of the Board if Trade.
Many, weary hours have been given
for the cause of Waynesville's ad
vancement; many gallons of gas; much
use of personal equipment, including
automobiles etc., to say notliing of the
Postage and other expenses anil this
has always been done cheerfully and
without hope of remuneration; but.
times have changed and whjle the city
would have been in a honelCs plight
; without the assistance of the Board of
Trade and its officials, it Js admitted
that Wavnesville lias outgrown this
, gani.at ion and if we wou'd continue
(.Np:in,l, W1 must liave; a genuine-
full-membership Chamber of C'om-
merer with a full-time paid serrotn'-y.
The beneT's of -i cai Cli i 1 1 cr if
Commerce are u.o numerous t men
tion here; but it is a fact that nearly
every city of :;ny i mpjrtaiire hr.s an
organization of this naiturn. Cities
n.uch smaller than Waynesville have
'hem with four and five hundred mora
l.i .- at $.r0 per year membership.
A Chamber of Commerce will hav
in connection with it: a merchant's
protective association; a women's bu
reau; a real estate bureau; a publicity
and advertising bureau. It will work
by committees that will accomplish
something. It will jajt the city on the
map, bring new industries into our
community, will organise .important
events such as a county fair, horse
shows, old home week. And the great
ional patriotic holidays will not go
by unnoticed. It will bring conven
tions to our cities and will do more in
one year for the good of our city than
any other contemplated movement.
There are at lpast one thousand citi
ezens of Waynesville who are directly
and indirectly benefited by the sum
mer tourist sqasnn. The.ie citizens
could etsily put $25 per var for mem
bership in such n organization purely
as an investment not as a donation
There are some fiotels, boarding hous
es, etc., that oujht to have from one
half to a dozen memberships. The old
way of asking a (business man to giva
up half his timd to take care of tho
community's interest without remun
eration is out of date and we should
not expect it nnjj longer.
In order to ge the best results, it
is better to get a full time secretary :
at a real salary. A cheap salaried
man is worse than none. He should
not he allowed to enter into any real
estate, insurance or any other business
as a side line, but should be required
to devote his entirp time to the pos'
tion. There are always, hundreds of let-,
ters of inquiry not only about Way
nesville and vicinity, but many times
people wanting to nvest in rual es- '
or in business o some kird.
These communications would be a- ;
vailable to all membbrs and if a citi- J
zen has property to rent, he would?;
have an opportunity of reading anj:&.
letters of inquiry without having tt'"
pay any percentage wmatcver. . , v H
All mail would be oben to each a u ''JJ
