THE TRUTH AND VALUE OF A WEEKLY
For years and years it has been a known
fact that the weekly newspapers of the countrv
had more influence and power than any other
news medium. This might seem to be a broad
statement, and at first glance seems to be un
true, when we consider that the large dailies
print hundreds of thousands of copies every
clay and .k-orne have several editions a day.
An editor of the daily group seems to
admit, indirectly, this power, when he recent
ly warned the weeklv newspapers about crit
icising Janan and China. He said, "every
county w t'kly, when it has nothing else to
say, denounces Japan. Who knows anything
about China and Japan and their intimate re
lations? Certainly not some cross roads
editor smoking a pipe."
Well said, thou one time small cross
road editor. Surely thou realizes the power
of the weekly press and warning giveth by
thee is worthy of consideration.
What a weekly newspaper has to say is read
and reread by every member of the family.
Topics printed in the columns are discussed in
the home, America's greatest institution. Re
gardless of which side of the question the week
ly editor takes it always receives more dis
cussion from the readers.
A few weeks ago an official of one of the
largest retail companies in the United States,
who spends millions of dollars annually on ad
vertising, told the editor of this paper that he
had rather have his company spend money
for advertising in weekly papers than in any
other advertising medium. He went on to
say that the life of a daily paper is only a few
.hours, as a new issue comes out before rhe last
one was thoroughly read, while the life of a
weekly newspaper is seven long days. The
subscribers of a weekly paper read practically
every word in it before it is discarded.
The writer made a visit to about thirty
rural homes in the county last week, just to
find frr st hand what attitude they had for a
weekly newspaper. The result shows that the
copies were kept from week to week and fre
quently references were made to the paper
and that the neighbors very often borrowed the
paper, even if it were several weeks old.
A weekly newspaper fills a need that no
other news medium yet known t man could
posribly fill. The type of news in a weekly
paper is still news when several weeks old.
Taking these facts into consideration, Mr.
Raleigh Times Editor we heartily agree with
you that the weekly ought to be careful what
it says, because the readers-have learned to
rely on the truth as presented in the columns
of a weekly and have found that their weekly
paper has a personal interest in their welfare.
They regard a weekly as one of the family.
They'll swear by a weekly newspaper.
THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN NATION
AL PARK A MECCA FOR TOURISTS
"Economic independence is assured for
Western North Carolina bv (the development of
reat Smoky Mountain National Park, which
will make this region more than evr the va
cation land supreme' Horace M. Albright, di
rector of National Park Service, told a group of
business men in Asheville last week.
During the course of his talk, Mr. Albright
brought to light some facts that perhaps the
average mountain citizen has known, but
passed up, taking for granted that the world
knew of the wonderful scenery and advantages
offered in Western North Carolina.
Mr. Albright stressed the point of adver
tising the Great Smoky Mountain National
Park. Most of us take it for granted that
since we know about this park that every one
else should know about it, but this is a sad
mistake. Very few people outside of this im
mediate swtion. ever heard of this new devel
opment, and all they need to know is what na
ture has blessed u.? with and then they will br
glad of. the opportunity to come here by the
thousands and spend their money. j
That leads up to the question of entertain
ing them after they arrive. Mr. Albright said,
"I hope that Asheville, Waynesville, Bryson
City, and other cities about the park willl be
attractive ito visitors who desire mere luxurious
and comfortable surroundings than the moun
tain lodife or camp. It is not only important
For what is a man profited, if ho shall gain the
whole world, and lo.ie his own soul? Or what shall a
man wive in exchange for hi- soul? Matt. - 10:20.
to get the people to come and enjoy a few days
in the Smokies, but it is important for them
to stay and enjoy this whole mountain country
of Western North Carolina."
"Western North Carolina is a vacation land
supreme. Its destiny is clearly denned. It en
joys the advantage of close proximity to a very
large population. The problem is to bring to
the attention of the whole nation that we have
here in Western North Carolina and Tennessee
one of America's greatest recreational areas. We
have got to broadcast its natural beauties, its
benign climate, and its vacation opportunities."
One suggestion that The Mountaineer
would like to make at this point is one that
every citizen in this Smoky Park area tan do
without any cost to any individual, that is, on
every letter you write, either business or social
make some remark about the wonderful oppor
tunities awaiting here in the mountains of
Western North Carolina. It would take only a
line or two and if every person in Haywood
county would say twenty words about the new
park during the next six months to some one
that did not know of the park, it would be
worth in advertising, at the regular commer
cial rate, over twenty thousand dollars, to say
nothing about what profit we would receive
from the tourists after they decided to spend
their vacation in the "vacation land supreme"
Western North Carolina.
Let's get ready now for the multitudes that
will arrive later.
LETTERS TO EDITOR
THE DEPRESSION IS OV ER
The best news tht has been printed dur
ing the past two years is in the title of this
article. Some are saying that we don't know
what we are talking about, perhaps we don't,
but we have everything in our favor to prove
we at least have the figures to back us up.
We are not trying to convince the citizens
of this country that good times are here, they
are not, but we do say that the nation, we be
lieve, has gone as far downward as it is going.
We are now in a period of reconstruction.
This period is of most vital importance and
how we emerge from this period depends solely
upon our faith in the country and in ourselves.
This country is just like Florida was a
few years ago after that terrible tropical storm
swept across the east coast and destroyed
hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of
property. A financial storm has just blown over
our nation and left in its path turmoil and un
rest. We are not satisfied with what was left
us; when we should be thankful that we were
not deprived of all our earthly possessions.
Florida did not build back the hundreds of
buildings wrecked by the storm in a day, a
month, or a year. They were built back, but
not one was completed by those that wore long
faces and lacked faith. Some were so dis
couraged that they would not even help those
that had courage and faith, and we all know,
that type of person can do plenty of harm just
by mingling with people with faith. If noth
ing else, they get in the way and hinder the
Just as Florida was for a few weeks, in
ruin, so are we now in financial ruin, but are
We satisfied to stay in this predicament. No!
Not one loyal citizen would be willing for Hay
Wood county to be littered with ruin and derbis
and not be willing to help clean up;
The government has just appropriated two
billion dollars to be used to the best advan
tages in aiding in this "reconstruction period."
Of fniirQP thprp is finite bit of arcrnmpnr for
and against the appropriation, and whether it
was a wise thing, we cannot say, but we do
believe (that it would give us more faith and
courage to face the next few months with a
determination to forget "hard times" and work
for the goal of "normal times."
Perhaps you farmers are saying, what does
that fool know about our problems, and the
business men the same. We grant you that
there are many problems that you have that
we know little of, but we do know this, that no
matter how many problems you have and how
discouraged you may be we can all determine
to talk less of the depression that has already
passed "out to sea."
AND AGAIN IT PAID
Another proof that advertising pays was
clearly demonstrated here Saturday afternoon
when a crowd of at least 600 people gathered
it Massic's Department Store for the
climax of a sale put on by Hugh Mass:e, owner
of the store.
The crowd practically blocked Main street,
the cars were only able to pass one at a time
for about an hour.
The store was so crowded that it was al
most impossible to wait on the customers.
Mr. Massie put on his advertising campaign
of the sale through the pages of The Moun
taineerand did it pay? the extra dollars
taken in shows that it was a splendid investment.
Well, if Al runs aeain we'll discover whether re
lijrious prejudice: is sti'Drirer than 6-cent cotton.

Service reported 44 milk-borne dis-'

In one Texas city three milk-borne
disease outbreaks occurred within a
period of two years. The most common
milk-borne diseases are typhoid, par
atyphoid fever, tuberculosis, scarlet
fever, diphtheria, septic sore throat,
and dysentery. Besides the more
prevelent diseases mentionel above,
it has been found that milk may also
be the medium of transmission of
various other diseases, such as foot
and mouth diseases, anthrax, niatta
fever, cowpox, and certain gastro
intestinal disorders found chiefly
among infants and young children.
According to some authorities, the
most dangerous of the milk-borne
di;;ea?es is tuberculosis, due to the
frequently with which it occurs an!
