The Southern Public Utilities com- j
with all the big Duke interests:
behind it, has the reputation of lo- 1
citting many industrial establish-;
ments in whatever section the com- !
? :-.ny operates its power lines. With 1
the big connections of the con
ci i n, citizens in Brevard are led to I
believe that the coming of the Duke ;
s iterests into Brevard is simply a
forerunner of an industrial expansion J
h'-'.o that will mean much to this
county. This belief is based not on
any statement that may have been
issued by any company official, but
merely on the record of the company :
in other towns and sections, and the j
ability of the big company to influ- ;
t r.ee industry to locate in sections ;
where the company can furnish the
power for operation.
Lines have already been strung '
from Hendersonville by the Southern;
Public Utilities company into Brevard

"juice" turned on. The lines carry
?14.000 voltage, and this, added to the

pany which the new concern will dis

ance of power for as many industries

Newspaper? in the Piedmont sec
tion of the Carolinas often publish
special articles and editorials, giving
in detail the growth of towns and

COUNTY CLUB TO BE I
ORGANIZED ON THE
12TH IN BREVARD
(Continued from page one)
other sections can affect us, <t is '
natural to assume as a certainty that i '
anything of a constructive nature '
would affect the country as a whole.
Using this argument as a basis, Prof, j'
Jones showed in a concise manner,
just what such an organization as
"The Transylvania County Club," in
it> nationar scope could arid would do
for not only this county but for the '
state and nation. Prof. Jones was a
charter member of the original Ruth
erford County Club formed seven
years ago, and gave verifiable facts
of the benefits derived by that county
in the past several years from the
concerted efforts of the organization
The Rutherford County club,
Prof. Jones asserted, had been di
rectly instrumental and responsible
for the following movements and im
provements in Rutherford county:
United the county into one factor 1
for good and has eliminated much
jealousy, etc., between towns; spon
sored the county fair, older boy's
conference, Farmers Federation
warehouse and potato curing house
with a capacity of 15,000 bushels,
more purebred poultry and livestock
on the farm ; defeated the proposal
to increase telephone rates in Ruth
erford county; sponsored several
county-wide celebrations, that have 1
gained state-wide recognition; full
time county welfare officer; home
and county demonstrator and a full
time county physician.
Climaxing his statements, Prof.
Jones declared "that if Rutherford
county can have these things through
the efforts and concentration of all
the people in the county, how much
better can the people of Transyl
vania do with their incomparable
dairying possibilities, the greatest of
which is the natural grass-growing
soil of this county, and the adapta
bility of our county for diversifica
tion in all lines of endeavor ? both
agricultural and industrial. If
Rutherford county can have, in
i their level county great money-mak
Jing industries, why cannot Transyl
jvania coi%ty with its wonderful cli
mate, purest of water and unlimited
I water power have great smokestacks
| belching forth smoke and furnish
ing employment for many, and a
; market for our surplus produce."
Dr. Bright explained that the local
club would function absolutely as an
individual organization, having its
own constitution and by-laws and be
ing its own "boss" entirely. That
though the national organization
would offer from time to time, sug
gections for lines of endeavor, the
i local organization would be a free
j lance body operated by and for the
people of the county. That no as
| sessments could be made by the na
tional body. However, Dr. Bright
said, information of any nature per
taining to the welfare of the club,
Jof laws being enacted in Washing
ton which would in any way effect
| the farmers, or of proposed" meas
! ures, could be had for the asking
from headquarters which maintains
at all times in the national capitol a
j branch office for this purpose.
! Dr. Bright further explained that
j the meetings of the club would not
be centralized at any one point in
jthe county, but that from time to
I time meetings would be held in the
i various prec'ncts of the county so
that a clearer first hand knowledge
of the particular needs of the dif
ferent sections of the countv could
; be had.
| Other speakers heard were E. Carl
| Allison, G. T. Lyday, Prof. S. P.
Verner, W. S. Ash worth, Mrs. C. F.
Baldwin, C. R. McNeely, J. F. Bar
rett and others, declaring they were
heartily in favor of an organization
that would function by and be com
prised of farmers of the county, and
I through which matters that vitally
concern the agricultural interests of
.the county could be brought to the
attention of the farmers of the coun
ty as a unit and through the concrete
work of the body be taken care of
in such a manner as to promote the
Committees were appointed by
the chairman to invite the farmer's
of the county to be present at the
organization meeting at which time
the principles of the club will be
explained. Mr. Osborne stated that
no undue demands would be made at
the meeting for other than volun
tary memberships, and that to at
tend did not necessitate the taking
of a membership in the organization.

MILLION CHEVIES I
MADE THIS YEAR
Detroit, Oct. 3. ? The Chevrolet:
Motor company announced here to- '
lay that more than 1,200,000 new1
six cylinder Chevrolet cars have been !
placed on the road since the first of !
This achievement accomplished in '
little over nine months, is three j
times the best showing of any other !
manufacturer of six cylinder cars in
a calendar year and tops Chevrolet's
record total for the entire year of
It is no certain that six cylinder!
production will set a world record j
this year, surpassing for the fir>t !
time in the history of the industry ?
the output of four cylinder car:
This leadership of the sixes will com'
about chiefly because of Chevro- 1
let's record showinp this year.
Chevrolet factory officials declare
that the dominating reason back < A '
the leadership of the six is the pub- ;
lie preference for the advantage: '
which this type of construction af
fords. They point out too that thi
influence of great volume produc- 1
tion,, which has enabled the industry
to get six cylinder prices down to
the lowest on record and has made ii j
possible for Chevrolet through max
imum volume to offer six cylinder
performance at a price that for- ,
merly bought only four.
With a new yearly record already
assured, Chevrolet factories are con- 1
tinuing on the biggest fall produc- 1
tion program ever undertaken bj
the company. Nine assembly plants
and seven large manufacturing plants ?
are facing the busiest final quarter |
that Chevrolet has ever known. j
The heavy fall factory program
was made necessary, it was explain
ed, to bring production up to the
level of the demand and make pos
sible quicker deliveries to owners.

No, she lived out in the country
And each Sunday morn she'd go

j Where she'd occupy the stool
At the little wheezy organ,
At preaching and at Sunday
And she'd also lead the singing,
If the leader wasn't there;
And her voice with gladness ringing
With melody, would fill the air.
In the big fine city churches
They can hire their singers grand,
And if they take a notion
| They can have a whole brass band ;
But when it comes to music
That really is worthwhile,
Some of our country churches
Have got them beat a mile.
