Stronger Was Appeal Of
Speaker To H.D. Club
The address of Mrs. Estelle T,
Smith state vice-president of Home
Demonstration clubs, before the
recent district meeting held in
Franklin was reported by the sec
retary, Mrs. F. E. Mashburn, but
arrived too late to be published
in last week's' paper.
Some of the highlights of thhis
notable address are given here
The speaker traced the progress
of the clubs over a period of 20
years when the first club of the
western district was organized in
Jackson county. From a life rich
in experience and accomplishment
Mrs. Smith inspired the club wo
men attending from Macon, Clay,
Jackson, Haywood, Swain and
Cherokee to press on .with their
purpose of education for better
homes which has already created
a new spirit and higher ideals
throughout this whole section.
Making America strong physi
cally by eating the proper foods
was pointed out as a matter of
education, and there was an appeal
for unity of effort to win the war.
She suggested the aim, "Make
America strong by making Ameri
She described our "good neigh
bor", South America, saying that
a visit to those countries took all
of the conceit out of a North
American, because in education and
culture they are far above us in
many ways in speaking several
languages, they are devout, and
their English is pure.
The speaker urged elimination
of nan-essentials and warned,
"Not to let a slip of the lip
Sink a ship."
"Let tire and gas rationing be
the opportunity for us to get ac
quainted with our own family and
our community," the speaker sug
gested, closing with an appeal for
good will and practise of the Gold
en Rule, "Let us love our neigh
bor as ourselves."
Mrs. Mashburn expressed ap
preciation to the 4-H club girls
and to all those whose efforts
contributed to the success of a
lay which will long be remember
ed by those attending the gather
ing. The North Carolina Highway
Commission maintains a total of
