two
Voters to determine who, in the
judgment of these members,
were the twelve greatest women
in America. The results were
as follows: Jane Addams, phi
lanthropist; Cecilia Beaux, pain
ter; Carrie Chapman Catt, poli
tics; Anna Jump Cannon, as
tronomy; Anna Botsford Con
I stock. Jnatural history; Minnie
Maddera Fiskc, stage; Lou we
Homer, music; Julia Lalhrop,
, child welfare; Florencfe Rcna
oaDin, anatomy; M. tarcy Tho
mas, education; Martha Van
Renssalaer, home economics;
Edith Wharton, literature.
This is certainly a most in
teresting list, and one which
will probably arouse much dis
cussion. Already many dissent-
' ing voices have been heard, al
though if the basis of choice is
considered perhaps little criti
cism could be made of the fair
ness of the judges and the re
suits arrived at. It would seem
as though the aim was not to
name the twelve most eminent
women in the nation, but to
choose twelve women each of
whom was greastest in'her par
ticular calling. Twelve callings
were enuwerated and then the
most out standing women in the
profession named. This accounts
for the fact that there are five
or six names in the list whic
very few of the readers of THE
x CHRISTIAN WORK will rec
ognize.. I must confess that
i had never heard of Anna Jump
Cannon, or Anna Botsford Com
stock, or Florence Rena Sabin
and Cecilia Beaux and Martha
Van Renssalaer were but names
w tuui u a iiiiu fciiat .ivAias
Beaux is considered by the art
cntics as by all odds the grea
test painter, among American
women: that Mrs. Comstock has
written many learned books on
bees and butterflies and is the
foremost authority on natura
history ' among American wo-
men; that Miss Sabin is a pro
fessofin Johns Hopkins Uni
versity and has published
wonderfully original "Atlas of
the. Bram"; that Mrs. Cannon
has discovered" over two hun
dxed stars through her telescope
and has made a catalogue of two
hundred and weat thousand
stellar spectra: and that Mrs
Van Renssalaer has written a
long list of books on home eco
nomics
This explains how it is that
seVeral names of women known
to everyone in America are not
in the listnovelists, poets there
, is nip , poet jiamed, by . the way,
dramatists, singers, accesses,
educators, are not in the list,
while, their less widely known
sisters are there Were a list of
the twelve really greatest wo
men to be made, regardless of
" proportionate representation,"
even this a p e ci a 1 committee
, would haye given us quite a
different list'-' Upon such names
. as ine outers Jane Addams,
Carrie Chapman Catt Minnie
Maddern Fiske, Louise Homer,
Julia Lathrop, M. Carey: Tho
mas andt Edith Wharton practi
cally 'ey erpbody will be agreed.
All of them have really made
of western
and other counties
North Carolina.
This is the goal that has been sot
for this section of tho state by J.
CJ. Stikelcather, who represents the
district on tlw state commission and
who has supervision of the state
highway work being done in wit-
em North Carolina under the $65,-
000,000 state bond issue program
According to Mr. Stikeleulhcr,
he expects to let contracts this year
for tho amount of -road improve
men's mentioned and hopes to .ac
complish the coal if nntliinc iinfnr.

seen nappens to delay me work.
However, there is now being anti
cipated probably some let up in the
road work in this section, he said,
if the conditions now prevailing in
the central and eastern parts of the
state should arise here. Oiaccoimt
of the general industrial boom, in
eluding a great building activity
throughout the state, the roa
work in the central and eastern
counties is now being handicapped
by a shortage of material. There
is also a shortage of labor in those
sections, largely because the same
business boom is attracting labor
ers elsewhere, This situation ha
nofyct struck the western part o
the state, according to Mr. .Stike
lcather, and if it does, a plowing up
in the road work until the situation
is passed may result. However, he
ishcping that such conditions wi
not prevail. '
At present there .sre over 1,000
men, including the state engineer
ing force and employes of contract.
ing firms, busy building better
roads in this western soction of
North Carolina. Mr. Stikelcather
says he expects to keep them busy
and Will, m so far as he is able
Of the money derived' from the
fc65.O0O.OO0 bond issue, the ninth
highway district was awarded about
$5,000,000, and of this amount ap
proximately, $1,000,000 has been
spent, according to latest estimates
It is stated that the balance of the
alloimcnt will be spent during tho
next two years, and if the road
building program is to continue
after that time in full force, an ad
ditional bond issue, may have to be
authorized by the legislature.
600-Mile Road System
The state highway system in the
western counties calls for the con
etruction of 600 miles cf roads, in
eluding hard surface and other
kinds. For the entire stato, it is
planned to build a chain of 6.000
miles, linking up every county, bc-
ore the present program is com
pleted in its etriiety.' .
Among the projects for this year
Mr. Stikcleathcr states, so far as
now decided, two will bo in Bun
combe county. One of these will
be a road from Cole Creek; in the
Hominy section, to the Haywood
line, a distance of seven miles and
the other will be a distance of 12
mile j in Buncombe and 4 miles in
Madison, oonnccting Ashcville and
Marshall, Both of these highways
will be either concrete or asphafl.
, The other projects now visualiz
ed for the western counties this
year include a gravel surface road
in Medison county, from Hot
Springs up, Spring Creek to the
Haywood county line a distance of
14 miles; in Haywood county, grav
