Showing the Merrill Tobacco Field in Little River
The above picture shows the fine
tobacco crop grown by Mr. Joe Mer
rill, oil his farm in the Little River
section. In the picture are Mr. j
Merrill and his boys, with Mr. Julian
A. Glazener, teacher of vocational
agriculture in the Brevard High
School This tobacco was fertilized
with V.-C. fertilizer, which is rec
ommended by Mr. Glazener. Last
week's pictures showed the fine to- ;
bacco grown ia Gloucester, in Que- 1
bee, and at Brevard. This picture I
shows the weed grown in the lower
end of the county, proving beyond
a doubt that the whole county is a
tobacco growing county Next week
there will appear a picture of the
crop grown by Mr. Hardy Merrill, 1
also of the Little River section.
Government Proposed Dam and j
Lake Creates Widespread Interest
Widespread interest was aroused
in publication recently of the gov
ernment's report concerning the
probability of erection of a dam at
Biltmore which would create a lake 1
reaching from that point to Rosman. '
Hundreds of people have visited The
Brevard News office and studied the
government maps accompanying the
announcement. The very bigness of
the proposition precludes an easy
grasp, or understanding, of the
project. The report, made by the
United States engineers, operating
under the War Department, is the
result of work that has taken some
five years to complete.
As an indication of the water line
about Brevard, according to the
engineers making the survey, the
first floor of the home of Mr. T. A.
English, at Davidson River, would
be submerged, the water line coming
to the porch floor of the second
story of the English home. While
the government engineers were sur
veying this section, Mr. English ask
ed them as to the water line, and was
given the above information. Mr. ,
English, in speaking of the matter, j
asserted that unless the government .
removes the jetties from the French (
Broad river,' the whole valley might
just as well be taken for a lake site, (
as the overflows from the river in
flood time, caused by the jetties, ]
make it impossible to farm with any ,
degree of certainty.
Best informed people in speaking <
of the matter express . confidence (
that the project will ,at some future ;
date, be completed. Many years, ,
however, will pass away before ac-j
tual work is started, it is believed. J
The government suggests in a letter!
that all individual or private enter-*]
prises be carried on in usual man-1,
ner, even to the buliding of dams, ,
stating that such work on the part of
individuals or municipalities would .
be paid for by the government in '
event the federal project is pushed |j
through to completion.
The following letter was sent to ,
Mayor Whitmire and the town coun- '

ASSIST m BO io
Many merchants and business in

Fair through their advertisments
this week as a glance through the
paper will disclose. Study of these
messages is interesting. Others whose
messages do not appear sent their
copy in too late for publication, sev
eral ads having to be left cut. The
whole News force worked nearly all
ngiht Wednesday night in an effcrt
to get as nearly as possible all the
ads and articles, but could not reach
all of them.

HENRY REFUSES TO
MEET HAMLIN FOR -
Says Time Is Too Short Now,
as Democratic Dates Are
IS DISAPPOINTMENT TO
MANY CITIZENS HERE
Tax Payers Believe That Pub
lic Matters Sholud Be
Treated as Such
Hon. W. M. Henry, democratic
candidate for the legislature, has
declined to meet Hon. Lewis P. Ham
lin, republican opponent, in joint
campaign, as requested to do by Mr.
Hamlin on September 30. MrTHemr
states as his reason that the invita
tion for the joint campaign came
too late, owing to the fact that the
democratic candidates had already
planned their speaking tours over
The action of Mr. Henry will be
regretted by many citizens who feel
that the county's affairs should b?
discussed by representatives of both
parties at the same time, rather
than the method now employed of
one group of candidates speaking at
one time, telling that group's side of
the question, and the other group
appearing at a different time. Each
side is making charges and state
ments about the conduct of the other
party, and many citizens believe
these charges and statements ought
to be made at joint meetings, so the
citizens, who foot the bills, might
have the privilege of hearing from
both sides at the same time.
People who look upon the county's
business as being public and belong
ing to the public cannot see why
those who aspire to public offi.e
should hesitate in meeting their op
ponents and making their claims and
their charges in the presence of the
opposition, according to statement*
made by citizens when informed of
Mr. Henry's refusal to meet Mr.
Hamlin in joint discussion of county
affairs. As to there being lack of
time, it is pointed out by some citi
zens that it would require only nine
meetings for the candidates to appear
in each of the townships of the
county, which would have taken
them throughout the county.
A copy of Mr. Henry's letter,
which must be a great disappoint
ment to many of his friends, is pub-'
"Hon. Lewis P. Hamlin,
"Brevard, N. C.
"Dear Mr. Hamlin:
"I received your letter of recent
date in regard to a joint Campaign
between you and myself during this
"I regret exceedingly that you did
not make this request earlier' in the
Campaign, as our Candidates had al
ready made out their" list of ap
pointments before I received your
letter and every spare minute which
fore cannot accept your proposition.
I have is fully taken up and I there
fore cannot accept your proposition.
"The Democratic Plaform and
record are of suck^ high character
and so well takes Tare of the every
day working man and woman and
taxpayer, that it would have given
me great pleasure to have contrasted
said Platform and record with the
Platform and record of the Repub
lican Party, but it is now too late
to make changes in our speaking
dates, as same have been advertized
and arrangements made for the meet
, ings, and I therefore cannot accept
! "There is no one whom I would
have rather had a joint debate with
than yourself, for I feel sure that
you would have been a most cour
teous opponent and would have ably
represented your side in our debate,
for although you are a trained
speaker and lawyer of ability, while
I am only a plain everyday citizen
with no training along these lines,
still I would have ventured into a
'joint campaign with you fully aware
of the great personal advantage you
have over me, because I would have
relied upon the Platform and record
of the Democratic Party, which ap
peals to every good citizen regard
less of political affiliations.
"Again thanking you for your of
fer and regretting my inability to be
with you, for the reasons hereinbe
fore stated, I remain,
, ? "W. M. HENRY."
