out doors Jennings CC marksmen 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 5200 ft. 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. SCHEDULE OF COMING EVENTS Fire Fighting Training 2nd Turkey Shoot Annual Bear Hunt Mt.

COMPLETE PRESCRIPTION SERVICE COSMETICS CARDS CANDIES by Tommy Coo k "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 the issues. 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 President Johnson. 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 know. 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. oo Sunday at the Inn 3:30 P.M. Sunday Nov. 3, N.C.
