Mrs. J. M. Long's club served a
delicious two-course turkey dinner.
President Ralph Nollner was mas
ter of ceremonies. He introduced
Dr. and Mrs. L. B.Hayes as hi
guests Dr. Hayes is the r.ew presid
ing elder of the Waynesville district
of the Methodist church. He cor-ies
to Waynesville from Shelby w h ..
he was president of the Rotary Club
of that city. Mr. J. Robinson had

Mrs. Jim Robinson presented the
speaker of the evening, ?r. Dalton
Smith. Mr. Smith's talk dealt with
the matter of co-operation between
farmers, business men, and corsum-
LET'S SMASH THE DEPRESSION
Economists are saying that it can be done,
and some are bold enough to tell how it may be
done. Here is a sentence taken from a folder
recently sent out by the President's Organiza
tion on Unemployment Relief:
"The American people must be brought to
realize that by restricting purchases to bare
necessities at this time they are further de
creasing the volume of business and spreading
the catastrophe they so attempt to avert."
This, of course, is only a suggestion. But
between the lines the inference is clear. By
doing the opposite, the catastrophe of the con
tinuation of the depression may be avoided.
Even some extravagance may be read into the
sentence, and perhaps a little would not hurt
at this time. It is clear, however, that the
admonition is, "Spend your mony freely at this
time even to excess, it may, sometimes."
Henry Ford, a few years ago, was advis
ing people to take their money out of savings
banks and spend it. Some people sniggered at
such advice and thought that the sage of Dear
born was talking through his Stetson. But now,
after about two years of the worst depression
in history, almost the same advice is being giv
en by the President's Organization on Unem
It is interesting to observe that Henry
Ford, seventeen years before he became a multi-
million, was financially unable to buy a tur
key for his Thanksgiving dinner. Luxuries had
to be left out of the equation then with him.
But now his business slogan along with others
is, "Save money by spending it." Paradoxical
as it may seem, the slogan is perhaps sound
But people are not going to take it serious
ly. They are not going to take Mr. Ford's ad
vice, at least not literally.' The implied advice,
however, in the sentence quoted from the Presi
dent's Organization should be considered very
An editorial in the January number of the
Ladies Home Journal puts it up to the purchas
ing agents of the twenty-nine million American j crops in this immediate section
fnmilip tn start trip hnll mil; in hn'nmmr I A few matters of business were
back prosperity. These twenty-nine million!
house-keepers who hold the purse strings can,
if they will, turn the cash into the channels
of trade The volume of money that pours from
the millions of homes throughout the United
States into the marts of trade is regulated, in
creased or lessened, to a large extent by psy
chology. The hundred million pairs of shoes,
normally purchasedUevery few months may be
cut down to fifty millions by a fear that there
is going to be a shortage of money. The daily
menu may be reduced by leaving off everything
except bare necessities, and is often so reduced
when the thought that hard times may b- just
around the corner.
Reduction in buying brings about a reduc
tion in selling. That is fundamental. Reduc
tion in selling brings about a reduction in manu
facturing, and a reduction in manufacturing
spreads the catastrophe of unemployment. If
every person in Haywood County would eat one
more potato daily than has been his custom,
the price of potatoes would advance. The same
principal will hold good in other things. The
only good reason for not spending money is not
having it. The only honest reason for not pay
ing a debt is that one has not the money.
To bring back prosperity, then, the family
budget must be reconstructed. Take down
that old blue pencil and cross out the amount
for groceries, shoes, clothing, furniture, luxu
ries, benevolence, and amusements and increase , the usual business session. Miss
each item by ten percent. Then from the
amount for savings deduct the same amount
that has been added to the others. Is this con
trary to our inclinations and training? Possi
bly, but let's do it for a year anyhow in order
to smash that old vagrant, depression, anony
mously call HARD TIMES.
