HAYWOOD COUNTY AT TH E FRONT
For many years this county has been work
ig steadily and quietly along agricultural and
tock-raising lines. Little was said, to the out
ide world what Haywood county was doing,
ut now the entire state is looking to this coun-
as one of the leading counties along these
nes, especially stock-raising.
Not only has the agricultural and stock-rais-ig
caught the eye of the public but industry
as forged ahead and now &are proud to say
lat Haywood is also one of the leading manu
icturing counties west of the sand hills.
This distinction has been made possible only
uough the ability of the leaders to see ahead
id set their goals far enough from their past
-cords to give them something definite to work
ward. It is the duty of every citizen ot Hay
ood to back these leaders and help them make
lis county out rank any similar county in the
-Se and not only the state but the entire
outh It can be done, we have the natural re-jurces-
here. We have the blessings of nature,
a every hand, the rest is left to us. Now that
e are ahead in a few let's get ahead in many
The'Brevard News realizing the value of such
distinction as Haywood now has published
le iollowing editorial last week :
'The Waynesville Mountaineer and The Canton r,n
rprie have been telling in recent issues of the ear
ad after carloat of cattle being shipped from Hay
bod county ' to'the' markets- of the world. Huge
counts of money have been pouring into the pockets
' the farmers and stock men of that county.
"The Marshall News-Record now comes along with
-e .tatement that "More than $42,000 worth of cat
e have already been sold in Madison county, and
Ids the fertile justified boast that the season is not
it ended, and many more carloads will be shipped
om old Madison county.
-Neither of those counties aie as well adapted to
ock raising as Transylvania county. Some of the
der citizens here recall the days when car load after
,r load of cattle were shipped from this county, and
those days the farmers had money, and plenty of it.
"These mountain ranges ought to be turned free for
ock ranges. Thousands of acres of land lie within
lis county's borders that would provide range for
imberless cattle to roam and grow fat, thereby being
-epared for market at the least possible cost to the
. vners. . ..
"Let's get back to stock raising, like the men of old
lised stock here and shipped it away, receiving in re
irn much new money from outside sources,"
VVAYNESVILLE MUST RE KEPT CLEAN
Since the. suspension of the city trash truck
aynesville will have the tendency to let trash,
nd rubbish accumulate on the streets and pub
c places. This must not be the case. Some plan
ill have to be worked out whereby Waynes
ille will continue to have the reputation of be
ig one of the cleanest towns in Western North
One reason the truck Was discontinued was
ecause of the expenses. Then too, some people
'ere of the opinion that their taxes should not
elp pay for hauling other people's garbage off,
'hen they were paying individuals to remove
neirs. With all these different angles facing
hem, Mayor Howell and his board of aldermen,
ecided the only thing for them to do was to
iscontinue this service. -i
The city officials are to be commended for
his act, although the beauty and health of the
ity were at stake, but discord was among the
itizens and the Mayor and his aims were to
lease, regardless of their personal feeling in
he matter Mayor Howell and the aldermen
ealized that when it comes to spending other
eople's money that it is rather difficult to sat
;f y everyone.
The city officials do not want the people of
Vaynesville to be without facilities to dispose
f their trash and will take under consideration
ny suggestions that the citizens of Waynes
ille have to offer. The Mountaineer suggests
hat the citizens having garbage to haul from
heir homes or places of business be the ones
hat pay for this service and not tax the people
hat have their own facilities for removing
,'arbage. This could be easily done and not be a
mrden on any one.
The town of Waynesville will furnish a truck
md supervise the gathering of this garbage if
he citizens using this service will pay the men
aid up-keep of the truck. Under the existing
ircumstances what better plan could the city
There is a town ordinance that forbids the
burning cf any trash in certain districts of the
city, so just as a suggestion to anyone thinking
that burning their trash will be cheaper than
paying to have it hauled away, stop and realize
that a $50 fine can be imposed upon anyone
breaking this ordinance.
Now is the time we must cooperate with the
city officials. This is your town and your wants
and desires will be carried out as far a-; the fin
nncies of the city will permit. Thz citizens of
Waynesville can rest assured that the city of
ficials are not going to take any chances in jeop
ardizing tho credit of Waynesville.
Let's keep Waynesville clean and keep it a
city that we can point to with pride.

SAVE THE LEAVES THEY ARE WORTH
The people of Haywood County are burning
many dollars worth of valuable plant food
(leaves). They are being rakedunto piles and
burned, while lean spots in the garden and fields
are simply crying out for humus. Let's stop
this dangerous wasteful and unwise practice.
Make use of the leaves this fall, and by all
means do not burn them.
FAITH IN NORTH CAROLINA
At a time when many business concerns are slow
ing up their activities and curtailing in every possible
way it is refreshing to find an organization that is
not afraid to undertake a big program of expasion.
The announcement was recently made that the Cham
pion Fibre Co., at Canton plans a million dollar expan
sion program, extending over about a year, to start
immediately. Three large buildings will be erected and
$500,000 worth of new mechinery installed. Not only
will the construction work furnish employment for
workmen, but the expanded plant will continue to fur
nish jobs to men. It doubtless took courage to go into
a big undertaking of this kind. One of the most en
couraging notes of optimism we have discovered any
where was contained in the statement made by the
president of the company, Mr. Reuben Robertson, in
announcing the plans for expansion, in which he said:
'The decision to go ahead at this time may be
propel ly interpreted not only as an expression of
confidence in the ultimate restoration of normal
business conditions in the country but especially as
an expression of faith in the people and in the in
dustrial opportunities of North Carolina and the
: -South." ;
That's the sort of spirit it takes to pull out of this
Jep: ession. We trust more industrial leaders throughout
the State will follow Mr. Robertson's fine example.
GO TO SUNDAY SCHOOL SOMEWHERE SUNDAY
We wish the people of the churches Would inaugu
rate a campaign for' increase in Sunday School attend
ance. There is no finer training ground for life's work
anywhere than that found in the Sunday School. There
is something pathetic in the sight of a man Or woman
idling about on the streets or country roads during
the Sunday School hour on a Sunday. Such a person
is missing so much real enjoyment and beneficial in
fluence that this loss constitutes a real hazard in that
Suppose we have banners made, cards printed, and
even buttons like they use in political campaigns, with
the words: "Go to Sunday School Somewhere Sunday"
printed on them. Do you not think it would have great
influence in the matter of increasing Sunday School
attendance? If people who profess to be Christians
would work as hard for the Sunday School and church
as they do for their favorite candidates along about
election time there would be a different condition ex
isting in this good old country of ours. Constant at
tendance at Sunday School will actually lead a man into
active church work and Christian activity.

WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT HIS LAST PUBLIC
In paying a last tribute to the late Thomas A. Edi
son, nothing more impressive can be said than to re
peat what was probably his last public statement,
flashed by radio from his laboratory in Fort Myers,
Florida, to the National Electric Light Association
last summer, at Atlantic City. His words, which fol
low, show his interest in humanity which he had served
so long and faithfully. In these difficult times they
should be engraved on the consciousness of every
"My message to you is to be courageous. I have
jived a long time. I have seen history repeat itself
again and again. I have seen many depressions in bus
iness. Always America has come put strong and more
prosperous. Be as brave as your fathers were before
you. Have faith go forward." West Asheville News.
THE REAL REMEDY
The columns of the daily newspapers are filled these
days with accounts of where men and women have
taken their own lives, During the past two weeks two
leading men of Albemarle blew out their brains, both
of them right in the prime of life. Air these things
cause a thinking person to pause and consider. We
are passing through terrible times. The storms have
hit us. And woe to those barques which are caught:
out of harbor and without anchor. In nearly every
case it means destruction. But the men and women
who are anchored by a firm faith in the Almighty
those who believe in the eternal justice and love and
mercy of an all wise Ruler, and who are willing to do
their best storm and come through, through torn and
maybe and leave results to Him those will weather
the storm and come through, though tora and maybe
crippled, with faces to the front and with flying col
ors. Suicide will too often be the resort of those caught
in the gale without anchors.
"Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest," said the greatest teacher
this world has ever seen, and whose teachings have
revolutionized a world in two thousands years.That same
invitation is held out today to those who appear to be
at the end of their row. And no man in two thousand
years has risen up to say that he accepted that great
invitation and was turned down, or disappointed.
