Onco u j Km :t time, in coutiection with one of the
abortive attempt to iiiuiapluui, the Cullowhee School to
Asheville, tiiis paper was caused to direct the attention
of the Asheville Chamber cf Commerce and the people
of that city, to three of '.he commandments: viz, that is,
namely, "flum iSliait Not Covot?', "Thou Shalt Not
Steal". "Thou Shall Not Bear Faiiie W&lnew against
thy neighbor". , \
The Asheville papers, a week ago, exulted in a story
that The Vocational School at Waynes villa, was to be
moved, bag and baggage to Asheville.
> Titer has been a well defined, and poorly veiled
opinion among many people in Western North Carolina

QoWJtf b*H nmnUd it. Thsy have believed, or many of
thwn have, that Asheville killed the Greater Western
North Carolina Association ; that it was a stab in the
baek from Asheville that eaused the - decease of the .
Western North Carolina Chamber of Commerce; that it'
was a dose of eold water from Asheville's magnificent
supply that brought death to thp newly- bom Tourist In
dustry Conference, Thejr may have been wrong, but
many have entertained the suspicion, and it is not the
small-towli prejudice against the "metropulos", for
Western North Carolina has always been ready to co
operate with Asheville, when shown a willing spirt, and
a neighborliness. - . '*>
The people may have entertained a suspicion that was
without. foundation ;but wo here and now declare that such
attempts, as the removal of Cullowhee, Boone, and the ?
Waynesville schools have furnished well-grou*ded and 8
tangible evidence upon which to found just such sus- ;
It may be that Asheville was entirely justified in try
ing to get the Vocational School moved from her neigh
bor's territoiy. (Such a move would be a death blotto
Waynesville) but if the. school is moved to Asheville,
and without a clear, distinct and convincing explanation,
that that was the only way to keep that school in Western
North Carolina, the people of the entire mountain region
will resent it most heartily, and Asheville will lose more
good-will among her neighbors, then ten schools of the
character could possibly repay her. j
That school ia Waynesville 's all in all. It means so ;
much to the Haywood town, and so little to Asheville. i
Let us have the. whys and wherefores.
The Asheville papers stated brazenly that the secretary
of the Asheville Board of Trade has been on the job,
trying to get the school to Asheville for some time. Tell
