FOR FORD GARS
The Ford Motor Company
Now Has Special Steering
For Ford Cars With Bal
Probably the most important hews
in automobiles circles during the last
week was the announcement that
balloon tires arc to 1e furnished as
optional equipment on all types of
This i probably the greatest re
cognition giv'en balloons since their
introduction on the market, and
should prove an impetus to their pop
ularity. The Ford Motor Company has long
been interested in .balloon tires and
has been carrying' on experiments
with their: for some time. Its decision
to supply balloons conies only after
severe tests which, coupled with the
good results obtained by individual
owners, have proven these tires to
be thoroughly practical for '., Ford
To compensate for the harder
steering with balloon tires ,a special
steering gear with a greater reduction
will be installed on all cars carrying
these tires. . '
Balloons to be funished-for new
Ford cars will be of standard size
29x4.40 straight side and mounted on
wood wheels. This eqiupment will be
available at a comparitevly small ad
ditional cost to the new car pur
chasser. Arrangements also have been made
for providing dealers with balloon
tire equipment so that any Ford car
owner who desires to do so can
change over from high pressure tires.
Distribution of the new balloon tire
equipment has been made Jo Ford
Dealers and is now available to pres
ent and prospective Ford own3rs.
A Citizen Takes a Crack
at Bill Cunningham
Dear editer I seen in the paper
where Mr. Bill Cunningham says he
sets the price and beats the catalogue
and that nobody ought to trade with
anybody but him. Now I am a farmer
and a citizen of Macoji County and I
make my own living without no help
form Mr. Cunningham or any other
merchant in Franklin arid I trade
with whoever sells goods the cheap
est and gives me the best bargains..
And I want to say right here that I
have a catalogue from a Chicago com
pany that beats Mr. Bill Cunningham
c.lear down the list and I can bring
it and show it to him any time he
wants to sec it. If Mr. Cunningham
wants me to trade with him he'll have
to come down a whole lots yet before
he can beat Sears & Roebuck.
Yours truly, A, CITIZEN
who wish to share in this prize dis
Sealed Ballot Box
To insure absolute fairness and im
partiality in the awarding of prizes
the campaign will be brought to a
close under the "sealed ballot box"
system. During the entire last week
of the race, the ballot box locked and
sealed will repose in the vaults of a
local bank where candidates and their
friends will deposit their final cash
collections. Whdn the race has been
declared closed a committee of local
men, who will act as the official judges
in awarding the prizes will take
charge of the ballot box break ' the
seals unlock the box and begin the
final count of the votes. In this way
no one,; not even the campaign mana
ger, can possibly know the number
of votes held by any candidate until
after the judges have made the final
eount, which precludes any possibility
of favoritism and guarantees fairness
to the minutest degree.

University Professor Pays
Forester Alexander a Visit
Thomas D. Burleigh, Professor of
Forestry, Universtiy of Georgia, guest
of Alexander of the Nantahala, 'has
made a general and informal look
at the various workings of the office
and field force here and has secured
many good practical pointers to use
in instructing his apprentice lumber
men and foresters. As Alexander was
one of his, star' pupifs in the earlier
days, there being a small class of two
or three then, they had a big rtow-wow
over the many interesting events that
have occured on the campus since.
The i-ores. try school has at present
nearly, fifty pupils and in anticipation i
ot a much larger attendance expect
to erect a new Forestry building orf
the campus soon. There is no school
of 'this kind south of Pennsylvania
and because of this attemtence is
rapidly increasing. Mr. Burleigh
makes arrangements with big lumber
companies and forestry people' to
place during the summer months giv-j
ing them practical experience that
aids them greatly not only in school
! but also in later jobs,
' While Prof. Burleigh and Alexan
der were on Wayah Bald on the cliff i
locally known as Raven, they discov
ered, high above their heads, in a
('rock cranny, a raven's nest with;
' one egg in it To make a long story j
short it took them four hours to get1
that one egg. And from all accounts i
they saved their lives several times
by using their teeth. Prof Burleigh !

help them either because the ground
was covered .three inches o,. more

Th Forester representing the State
of North Carolina. Mr. Peterson, put
on a moving picture show Saturday
for the bench of all, and showed
many interesting forest and mountain
scene's. Due to a misunderstanding
Mr, Peterson did not give a lecture
as had been planned, but will try at
some future date to do so.

Qne Thousand, Thirty-six of
Patients Are Now Living
and Working Only 303
That Are Not Working.
Santaroium March 6, One thou
sand, thirty-six former patients now
living and working is the record of
the North Carolina Santaorium for its
patients discharged from the Sana
torium during tine past ten years.
There are also 303 living " and not
working. Eighty-nine per cent of alt
the early stage cases treated in the
past ten years are living and eighty
per cent are living and working.
"We claim," Dr. P. P, McCain sup
erintendent of the North Carolina
Sanatorium, !,aid. "to have the most
complete record of our discharged
cases of any sanatorium in the Unit
ed States. We have not completed
our survey for 1924, but previous to
December 31. 1923, we had lost track
of only fifty-six out of all the patients
discharged from the Sanatorium.
"If we estimate the value of a life
at the low figure of $5,000 these. cases
who have been restored to health and
to useful citizenship are worth more
than five million dollars to North
Carolina. Outside of their money
value, the patients who have gone out
from the institution have been a great
health educational factor in the State
missionaries carrying the gospel of
early diagnosis and prevention of tu
berculoshis to cities, villages and
farms throughout the whole State.
Our ex-patients are instrumental in
discovering a large per centage o
the patients sent to us in the curable
stage. They hane learned the' symp
toms of tuberculosis ; .they know 'the
necessity of an early diagnosis if a
cure is to be effected, and their own
experience has made them want to
help the other fellows. "-'
"As a means of prevention the value
of the institution in that discharged
cases cannot be estimated Not only
has the life of the person effected
with the disease been saved, but many
persons have been kept from the risk'
of infection and probable death by re
moving the tuberculosis persons from
among the healthy citizens of the
comrnuity. Treatment by segregation
remove the risk of infection and
knowledge of how to prevent infec
tion by precautionary measuresles
sens the risk of infection to others
when thev' leave the institution.. .
"The extent to which the instiution
has been successful in the prevention
of this great white plague is shown
by the steadily declining rate. Ten
years ago there were more than 5,000
yearly deaths from tuberculosis. In
1923 there wete only 2,450. Tuberculo
sis exacts Its toll from those in the'
prime of life. Is it not worth while
to save 2,500 of our most useful citi
zens every year I"
The most improving thing now a
days is the building of better roads.
The Dixie Highway is ; now being
completed so any one can travel from
the Atlantic to the Pacvific with out
leaving the Dixie Highway. ,
Just think of Alerica when it wars
first settled. There were "no roads
only trails made by the wild animals,
mals, . , . '
A person starting to California had
no roaXs to travel except the trails.
Everycitizen should be pleased to
think they live in America. : Every
citizen should strjve to have better
roads. There Is still room -for im-
