The Appalachian Trail Clubs
'J'HE Georgia Appalachian Trail Club, represent
ing a distinguished group of professional peo
pleteachers, writers, doctors, lawyers, musicians,
naturalists and others came to Franklin over the
week-end to make the trek over a section of the Ap
palachian Trail that passes along the crest" of the
Nantahala mountains. '
Every summer witnesses an increasing number of
hikers to the Nantahalas from every section' of the
country. Appalachian Trail Clubs are organized
from north to south "for those who seek fellowship
with the wilderness" and whose, purpose is to con
duct frequent outings and hikes, encouraging people
everywhere to seek wholesome recreation through
camping and trekking in the beautiful spots of
mountains, woods and streams afforded, especially
along the, Appalachian, Trail, and to promote their
conservation. This Trail has been mapped from
Mount Katahdin in Maine to Mount Oglethorpe in
Georgia, embracing the whole length of Appalachia,
with many side hikes along the way. In Macon
county the Trail follows part of the old Cherokee
Indian Trail, leading over Wayah and through
It is the ambition of many Appalachian Trailers'
to trek the entire distance from north to south
through succeeding vacations. Thus we are welcom
ing not only those members of clubs from neighbor
ing states, but all the way from New England. Dur
ing the past week a party of hikers from New
Hampshire and Massachusetts came to cover the
Nantahala part of the Appalachian Trail. All praise
the hospitable -camp grounds and other aids of the
forest service, and express enthusiasm over the rare
beauty of mountains and streams, birds and trees
and flowers that delight the nature lover.
It means much for our part of the mountains to
entertain those who seek and find all the beauty
that awaits them in the Nantahalas.
An Undertaking of Great Value
HE WPA project to copy and .cross index the
iuiua ui marriages ana Dirtns in Macon
county, which was started this week, is1 an under
taking of the highest value, and it is hoped that all
citizens interested willcooperated in every way pos
sible in enabling the workers to get the informa
tion necessary to complete these vital statistics.
The files containing marriage certificates go back
to 1829 and are fairly complete, though some of the
older ones are hard to decipher; but the birth rec
ords, which were started in 1913, are far from ac
curate on account of missing names, wrong dates
and other errors. These errors can only be corrected
by securing the necessary information from those
Time was when exact information as to the dates
of marriages and births was a matter of small mo
ment. In the early days entries in the family Bible
were, always made, and were considered sufficient
proof in any case. But at the present time the cus
tom of keeping records in the Bible has been almost
discontinued, and it is necessary to rely on informa
tion obtained from the county courthouse.
The calls for birth records are becoming more
numerous every day. Civil service examinations,
applications for government and state work, - for
driver's license, for passports to travel in other,
countries, and many other forms all call for copies
of certificates showing pace and date of birth. Also
those applying for old age assistance must be able
to establish their claims by some record of birth or

The marriage records of the county are on file,

under the old system, therefore the cross index

"But We Didn't
Sometimes in this day of relief,
-pensions, and increasing demands
from every side for government
help, it seems that the fine tradi
tional' American qualities of sturdy
self-reliance and grit are vanishing,
B,ut they still exist, perhaps in as
large proportion as ever. Here's a
bit of testimony on the point from
The Progressive Farmer:
"'Yes, I had a pretty good-sized
farm and was doing right well,, I
thought, before the 4ig depression
hit us about 1932,' said a friend in
our office. Then I lost the place
and about everything I had saved
in .30 years of work. But we didn't
give up. My wife and I started life
over again on a 40-acre tract. And
we are clifnbing back. We are mak
ing a living and keeping our faith
in the future.'
"There are thousands and thou
sands of just such folks on South
ern farms. To all of them we take
off our hats. They are the salt of
the earth. No matter what sort of
trouble comes, the individual, the
family, the country, or the section
that can say afterwards, 'But' we
didn't give up,' is the one that tri
umphs in the end. Confederate sol
diers were able to say it in ,the
years after Appomattox. Their sons
and grandsons still say it, no mat' I
ter what fate offer them."
