Ecusta’s Community
Spirit
(Editorial from Asheville Citizen)
There will be a general sense
of gratification for a desirable
end well attained as Western
North Carolina reads the an
nouncement that the endow
ment campaign for Brevard
College seems assured of suc
cess.
It will also be observed with
satisfaction that the Ecusta
Paper Corporation, although it
is only now well settled in its
fine Transylvania location, has
so quickly become acclimated,
so to speak, that the company
enters heartily into the com-
-munity affairs of local and state
importance. . . . ,
The report of the initial gifts
committee in the college cam
paign shows that President
Harry H. Straus subscribed, in
the name of Ecusta, $10,000 a
year for three years, for the
maintenance of the college as a
Brevard institution.
Thus Ecusta not only makes
a substantial contribution of
money to a good cause; its of
ficials manifest their possession
of a truly notable community
spirit as co-workers with Bre
vard and this region in the gen
eral advancement of Western
North Carolina.
It Doesn’t Take Much
Every man and woman
dreams of doing some great
good deed that will make oth
ers happy—leading a crusade,
giving an address, writing a,
book. We dream of the big
things and often fail to do the
little things. We let slip by
hundreds of little opportunities
to spread happiness and cheer.
In an inspiring poem, Lois
Snelling suggests some of the
little things we can do each day
to make this world a more joy
ous place to live in:
He stopped to pat a small dog s
head—
A tiny thing to do;
And yet the dog, remembering.
Was glad tne whole day
through.
He gave a rose into the hand
Of one who loved it much;
’Twas just a rose—but, oh, the
joy
That lay in its soft touch!
He spoke a word so tenderly—
A word’s a wee, small thing;
And yet it stirred a weary
liGsrt
To hope again, and sing!

ISN’T THE MILL IT’S YOU!”
If you want to have the kind of a mill
Like the kind of a mill you like.
You needn’t grab your clothes in a grip
And start on a long, long trip.
You’ll only find what you left behind,
For there’s really nothing new.
It’s a knock at yourself when you knock the mill.
It isn’t the mill, brother .... It’s you!
We sit and stand around and complain of what’s done
And do very little but fuss.
Are we doing our share of the work to be done?
It isn’t the mill, my brother .... It’s us!
So if we want to have the kind of a mill
Like the kind of a mill we like.
Let’s put on our smile, our very best smile,
And work, my brother, not hike.
It isn’t the work of a very small few.
It isn’t the mill that is wrong, my boy,
It isn’t the mill .... It’s you!
—Roy Wolfe.
