Mass Meeting Tarned Into Enthusi
astic Approral of National Foreata.
The mass meeting called by the
park' committee waa a complete fail
ure from a, park sentimental stand"
point. " .'
The meeting was called for Wednes
day at 2 o'clock in the Waynesville
court house arid the park committee
invited those- who were not in favor
of the park and proponents of a Na
tional Forest to attend the meeting
and it was stated that they would
be given an opportunity to state their
Mr. T. L, Gwyn was achsduled to
act as chairman of the meeting, but
failed to put in an appearance.
Mr. Bonner Ray, prominent young
business man and president of the
Wayneaville Chamber of Commerce,
presided and endeavored to keep the,
opposition from presenting their
views even though they had been
challenged to attend. Mr. Ray had
a hard job, but presided very grace
fully. Following is the call for the mass
NATIONAL PARK MEETING.
A meeting of all people who are in
terested in getting information in
regard to the proposed National
Park are requested to meet at tha
court house on Wednesday, Jan. 27th,
at 2:00 P. M.
At this mass meeting speakers will
persent the views of the proponents
of tha park side of this question and
an opportunity will be given those
opposing the park to give their views.
We feel that our people should get
first hand information on ihis ques
tion and act, as other counties are
very much interested in it and are
looking to see what Haywood will do,
since we are at the gateway to the
proposed parte. , ...
Mr. Plato Ebbs of Asheville made
his usual plea for the Great Smoky
Mountain Park and his sincerity and
earnest desire to carry the park idea
out created considerable sympathy
and consideration for the speaker.
After Mr. Ebbs had talked for
sixty-seven minutes, Mr. Ray invited
those who were in favor of the park
At this point Mr. J. M. Mock, one
of the park committee, asked fo
an expression of opinion upon the
part of those present. Out of over
one hundred and fifty people present,
about eighteen hands were raised in
favor of the park.
It was then pointed out that this
was an open meeting and Mr. Dan
though of Canton made a logical talk
on the superior advantages of a Na
tion Forest, Mayor D. J. Kerr of
Canton next made a most humorous
and sensible plea for the preserva
tion of manufacturing industries and
declared that the backbone of civi
lization was the man who labored and
made his livinging by hard work.
Mr. Prevost of the Unagusta Man
ufacturing Company of Hazelwood
made a most sensible address on the
superior benefits of full time pay
rolls over that of a few weeks tour
ist business. His address was ono
of the best made.
Hon J. Bat Smathers, represent
ing the Suncrest Lumber Company,
made a most eloquent speech on the
inconsistency of raising funds to
bring a manufacturing industry to
Waynesvillo and then trying to raise
money for a proposition detrimental
to their interests. He also stirred his
audience by referring to the balloon
knickers and the tin lizzy comparing
same with that of the man moulded
from the farm land and the laborers.
Mr. Ray requested that a resolution
presented by Mayor Kerr against sub
scribing to the park at this time
Althouga-those not in favor of the ia National Park and while the Ashe

THE TATE FAMILY.
At Wednesday's meeting the local
newspaper received some citicism on
account of its attitude in favor of
a National Forest, but it was pointed
out by a representative of the Moun
taineer that this paper had given one
hundred and eighty inches of free
space to the park adherents and had
charged the manufacturers even
though our editorial opinion is de-.
cidedly against the proposed park and

The mass meeting demonstrated
that the majority of the Haywood

the - attitude or destiny of a great
people. This was proven at the Great
Smokey Mountain National Park
mass meeting last Wednesday afternoon.

RAISING TREES BY REDUCING
ft has been stated on good author
ity that four times aa much timber is
consumed each year as is grown. Re
forestration is the proper solution for
our dwindling timber supply. But
it is more easily preached than prac
ticed, due to heavy taxes which con
sume all possible profits, long before
the trees are marketable.
California is to vote at the next
election on a constitutional amend
ment designed to relievo replanted
timberlands from taxation until the
!res are merchantab'e. This ? a

Red Cross, spent Thursday here in
regard to re-organizing ihr local
chapter of the Red Cross.
The chapter plans to hve a mil cnil
at an early date, after a canvass is
made for new members. The animal
roll call which is scheduled to wnm
some time between Armistice Day and
Thanksgiving, was never booked this
year. Miss Kemper states that un

members to our roll each year wa
will have to forfeit our charter, which
would be unforgivable for such a
thriving community. So far we
have been negligent in adding new
members to such a deserving cause,

have a chance to redeem ourselves.

Last week we said that the "con
mon cold" was caused by an infec
tion. Following this it is logical to
discuss Influenza which in many ways
is hard to differentiate in its mild
form from a severe cold.
Tho bacterium which causes Influ
enza (the French word is La Grippe)
was first isolated in 1892. It is a
very small rod, shaped bug and can
only be seen by a powerful micro
scope after being properly stained.
The onset of Influenza is marked
by chilliness, flushes of heat and cold,
sneezing, nasal discharges, intenso
headache in the forehead and bach
of the head, often severe muscular
pains, cold perspiration, cough with
expectoration of a whittish tenacious
mucous, chest pains and a tempera
ture from 101 to 103. Sometimes tho
symptoms are mostly those of a se
vere stomach disturbance, with nau
seaa, vomiting and perhaps diarrhea.
The fever remains usually for threo
or four days then gradually but rath-pi-
ranidlv subsides. In many cases
the cough continues for an indefinitrt j tablishment of a school library and
time and catarrhal penumonia is a ' placing a set of supplementary read

The National Forests Fulfill the
Needs and Desires of the Public.
It is now proposed that should havo
National Parks, as well as National
Forests in our White Mountains. Thq
sentiment of New England is not in
favor of a park in the White Moun
tains. After fourteen years of adi
ministration by the Forest Service;
we find it abundantly satisfactory.
It protects all our roadsides through
the National Forests. It protects tho
timber along all our trails, of which
we have more than a thousand miles
in the White Mountains. Through an
understanding with officers of thu
Forest Service before the Weeks Law
was passed, six areas are reserved as
natural history museums and sconiu
beauty spots, without any cuttini!
whatever, and there are large areas
on our high slopes that have been
set aside forever to be uncut in ordeo
that the purpose of the Weeks Law
may be carried out and the stream
flow in our mountains may be con
trolled. This is quite sufficient to
maintain the balance of Nature, and
for the rest, we believe that our nat
ural resources should not be set asiilo
in a National Park where they cannot
. e utilized. Our smaller mills and
Victories are thriving in th neigh
Nunood of the National Forests. They
ate now able to secure material which
formerly they could not gut from tho
great lumber companies. This wo
regard in New Hampshire as of tho
greatest possible importance. Under
a park management the natural re
sources would be entirely locked un
and unused forever. The area would
become a matter of expense instead
of revenue to the Government and tu
the state. The White Mountain Fori
est is now more than self-supporting,
and yields a small revenue to the
Government, and to the towns in lhi
State in lieu of taxes. Our area im
probably the most intensively nse,!
for recreation of any similar area
in this country. Sentiment with us ia
