The Conservation Club had a turkey
and skeet shoot on Saturday, October
26th. A few brave g'rls tried their
luck at target shoot’ng. The shoot was
successful in that it demonstrated gun
safety to many new members.
Saturday did not end the Club's
activities. A h’ke was scheduled for
Sunday to Dickey's Loop, the half
way point between Montreat and
Mt. Mitchell. Many eager hikers
took to the mounta’n ridges to observe
the natural beauty of the Fall season.
Upon arrival at Dickey's Loop,
eleven brave souls dared to climb
Greybeard Mounta’n, elevation
After struggling up the slopp
the climbers were rewarded by a clear
360 degree view of the surrounding
mountains. Mitchell was in plain
sight. As the sun quickly
d’sappeared everyone scurried
down. The only wddlife
sighted was a roving black bear.
All returned safely to Montreat
about 7 p. m.

"The American voter is very confused
this year," Peter Jennings said when he
spoke here to a small audience on Friday
night, October 18. Mr. Jennings, whose
subject was the Presidential election, gave
several examples of places he has visited
in an attempt to find out how the general
public feels about this year's election and
In a crisp talk which preceded a panal
discussion, Mr. Jennings mentioned all
three candidates to some extent, none
very favorably. At one point, he
apologized for displaying his liberalism.
He affirmed that Nixon Is using the
Paris Peace Talks as an excuse not to make
a statement on V'etnam; that Wallace
would not have much support in the
Senate and the House; and the Humphrey
would be hurt In the election because
he cannot disassociate himself from
Mr. Jennings spoke of the places he
had visited. One was Orange County
in California, generally considered
the most conservat’ve area in the country.
Surprisingly, the people there, instead
of electing a conservative Republican,
who is backed by a multi-millionaire,
will probably re-elect to the State House
of Representatives a Democrat who was
a McCarthy backer.
Another example Jennings gave was
Independence, Missouri. He pointed
out that this city of 120,000 would
probably vote for George Wallace. He
said th’s was probably because most of
the people in Independence, Missouri,
fearful of riots, had moved out of
Kansas City, ten miles away.
In Jennings' opinion many wealthy
people would ally themselves with the
middle class whites in Independence
who are expected to vote for Wallace.
Jennings gave us another example, a
small town of 4,000 people in Iowa. The
people In this town had voted for the
winner in every presidential election
for the past 70 years. Who would they
vote for this time? Even they did not
Near the end of his talk, Mr. Jenn’ngs
reminded his audience that there are
75 mill’on people In the United States
who live ^n towns with less than 7,000
people. His visits showed him that
these people are not too concerned about
law and order, and Vietnam, the two
main issues in th’s year's elect’on.
His own opinion about the outcome
of the election was that Richard Nixon
almost inevitably would be the next
President of the United States.
