the enjoyable and novel experience
befalling children of Lake Lure res
idents in future. Since plans have
practVcally been completed for the
immediate construction of a (42,000

lots 15, 16 and 17 in Luremont, the
initial-residential section now being
rapidly developed here.
The site for the school has been
donated by Chimney Rock Mountains,
Inc., to the Rutherford county board
of education. Construction will
start at once, the finished plans being
prepared by G. Lloyd Preacher, noted
Atlanta Architect, making use of the
Northern Italian style adopted as the
motif for Lake Lure buildings. The
school will be sufficient for 336 pupils,
and the commanding location near
Lake Lure will make it possible to
serve this tract both by water routes
and by N. C. 20, the new link of
which runs close by. Site for a
modern high school building over
looking the golf course, ha likewise
been donated by the Lake Luve devol

pavilion to be built immediately, jut
ting out into Lurenvor;t Bay near the
Lake Lure Inn which will open its
doors in August.

Northern Italian architecture, with a
floor measuring 75 by 75 feet in tha
clear. An arcaded balcony will give
access by aposing flight of steps to
large floats at which pleasure may
moor. The site selected is close to
the new Pool Creek arch type bridge
upon the new link of State Highway
No. 20 traversing Luremont. Hollow
tile, concrete and otner durable ma
terial will be used throughout, with
predominating colors, white, red and
green. A children'? wading beach is
to be prepared nearby, while not far
distant will be the general bathing
beaches, heavily landed.

TWENTY-FOUR STUDENTS FROM
HAYWOOD AT CLXLOWHEE
Cullowhee, N. C, June 7. Al
though nearly one-tenth of the 350
students enrolled at Cullowhee State
Normal for the first session of the
summer school are from other states,
the enrollment figures show that the
school is pre-eminently a training
school for Western North Carolina
teachers. The eight North Carolina
counties leading in number of stu
dents enrolled are: Jackson, with 46;
Buncombe, with 37; Macon, with 32;
Haywood, with 24; Swain, with 24;
Clay, with 15; Madison, with 14; and
Cherokee with 13.
With the exception of Boone Train
ing school, Cullowhee is the only
state normal this side of Greens
boro, and this probably accounts in
part for the unusually large enroll
ment regardless of the fac: that
Western North Carolina has five sum
mer schools for teachers.
Although the Cullowhee officials
have tried to provide all dormitory
space possible for the summer school
students, dormitories are overflowing
and already plans are being made to
provide more room for a still larger
enrollment for next summer.
The rapid growth of the inslitu

Dear Mr. Band and Staff:
We are nearinj our journey end
and arrive at Athens at 2 p m. today
and will give Europe the once over,
leaving South Hampton, Eng. June
5th for New York. We enjoyed our
overland trips through India very
much. Of course the weather was
exceedingly warm. However, the
railroads operated by the British
give excellent service, each car has
two compartments and have four
berths in each compartment provided
with electric fans and shower bath.
There is no passage way from one
car to the other and at meal time
the special train which we were , on
would stop and everybody would get
off and go ahead to the dining car and
train would go on, then in about an
hour it would stop and the passen
gers would all go back to their re
spective compartments. The manner
of serving meals is rather different
from our usual custom, namely, five
meals are served daily, about 6:30
a. m. the train would stop for early
breakfast, in the schedule it is called
choto Haxri, then at 8 o'clock regu
lar breakfast, at noon lunch is
served with sandwiches, rakes and
cookies. Then the big feed at 6 p. m.
I managed to show up at all these
different meals, but would not eat so
much at each meal. We often longed
for some good spring water from
home. You don't dare drink the
water served with weals on t'.if
trains. There water eeaters are un
known anywhere in this country.
You are supposed to buy bottled
drinks, soda water, etc., most eft.

News from Raleigh
(By M. L. Shipman.)
Raleigh, June 7. Interest in the
primary of Saturday was the absorb
ing item in Ra'cgh during the past
week, but there were other things
which interested the citizens. The
hearing on the increase in state fire
insurance mutters claimed some at
tention. The voters in this section manifest
ed great interest and all during Sat
urday, despite weather which was not
favorable, the polls were crowded.
The local interest centered largely
on the fight for the Solicitorship be
tween W. F. Evans and Leon G.
Brassfield. The Overman-Revnolds

local politics overshadowed in inter
est all others. At the close of a bit
ter campaign in which Evans ran
for re-election solely on the record he
had made while Brassficld, a nice
young man of pleasing personality,
because of the fact that Evans had
upheld the law, had gathered to him
self a heterogeneous collection of
voters, which included some from
every class. The issue was in doubt
until the last vote had been counted.
The Overman-Reynolds race claimed
attention toward the last when it be-
came manifest that Reynolds was
making a surprising race.

day indicate an overwhelminging ma
jority for Senator Overman over

Walter E. Moore has long served

it not be a gracious act if the vun-ner-up
in this judicial race should
waive his rights and permit Mr.

provides for it. The sentiment of
the people is ususilly opposed to a

friends; he who calls for another
