A Guide to the Old North State
TTflE above is the title of the North Carolina vol
uine of the American Guide series which has
been accomplished as a federal writers' project of
the Works Progress Administration.
Recently released by the University of North
Carolina I'ress, this story of the state furnishes a
practical guide to points of interest, as well as a
condensed historical, economic, social and scenic
description of the state "Extending front the sand
bars along the Atlantic to the crest of the Great
' "The text, which has been condensed from masses
of material sent in by project workers in each
cpunty and many other sources, was prepared under
the supervision of the well known author, Edwin
ijjorkman, of Asheville, state director, whose pref
ace acknowledges the assistance of many organi
zations and individuals as consultants.
Part III is arranged under the head of "Tours,"
designed to guide motorists on the highways. In
describing Tour 23 Dillsboro-Eranklin the com
piler unfortunately confused Jackson and Macon
county information; ascribing to Franklin the pos
session of "paper mills" and "extract factories,"
also an erroneous paragraph concerning the court
house. It is to be expected that such err6rs will
sometimes occur in a work of this character. Of
course each section will regret that much of inter
est is omitted in the condensed form necessary. The
same will be noted of the illustrations.
As a comprehensive picture of the state the. work
is of great interest and value.
This Is Fire Prevention Week
TTIIIS is Fire Prevention Week throughout the
United States by proclamation of the President,
the chief executives of the various states and the
mayors of cities and towns.
It is the time to get rid of inflammable rubbish,
to carefully go over all heating and cooking equip
ment and electric wiring and appliances the time
to see that all is ready for the cold weather that is
on the way, when stoves and furnaces, and fire
places will roar with flame and electric lights will
burn throughout the long evenings.
To those who have taken all precautions to pre
vent fire from ravaging their homes and places of
business, the winter will hold no terrors and they
can look forward with satisfaction to the season of
frost and ice.
A Soldier Marches On
SOLDIER of the Confederacy at seventeen,
T and, for the rest of his life a soldier of the
Cross, the Reverend Edmund Neville Joyner, of.
Hendersonville, last Tuesday laid down the burden
of his ninety-three earthly years.
Those who knew him through his long and faith
ful ministry were inspired by his single-hearted de
votion to his Master and love of his fellowmen.
Ill's brilliant mind and dauntless spirit gave service
to his church and state as missionary, teacher, writ
er and editor. Many of his beautiful poems have
A native North Carolinian of distinguished par
entage, Edmund Joyner, the boy soldier, came home
from federal prison at the war's end after being
given up for dead. He carried a deep scar on his
brow where a bullet entered his head and which
he miraculously survived. He twice served as chap
lain of the North Carolina Division of Confederate
With a deep compassion for all who were under
privileged, this indefatigable pastor spent many
years of his life raising funds and directing schools
for negroes in South Carolina, where he also served
as chaplain for several labor unions in those early
days of labor's struggles for better conditions. As a
missionary in Western' North Carolina, Mr. Joyner
not only served several town churches but estab
lished Christian work in isolated parts of the moun
It is to preserve the spirit of such real heroes of
war and peace that gives purpose to the present
work of the Daughters of the Confederacy, now
assembled in their state convention in Raleigh. The
. Asheville Citizen says of this organization: "They
wish to keep alive the fine philosophy of the Old
South which lived and still lives after the debacle
that swept away so much of the material shell
which housed it."
As the last Confederate veterans cast aside their
material shells, the South of today seeks.to preserve
its heritage of courage and gentleness.
