Thonius Price, of New York, sec
retary of the Union Pacific Railway
Svstem. and summer reside;. t cif Hay
wood county, who returned lo his sum
mer home here, al the headwaU-rs w
Allen's Creek, stated yesterday during
an interview with a reporter of The
Mountaineer that every time ht came
,o Haywood county he was more
l-.essed with the beauty and "friend
liness" of the mountains of this sec
tion. He compared the mountains
here with the Rockies and stressed
the fact that there was a feeling in
"thpsi. hills that Wki not found in any
other section of the world." He con
tinued, "there is everything here lu
the mountains to make Tan happy.
It's just wonderful. The seem ry is
never tiring." :
Mr. Price spent part of last week
here before leaving to preside over a
board of directors of his company in
Salt Lake Uity. un nw return
ha l,.ft immediatelv for Cllcaj'O
rm )iusine iinil iptlirlied here for only
a few days when called to New York
on another director's meeting, lie
will be there for the next few weeks.
Mr. Price was born in Wales and
came to this country at the age of 17.
He lived in New York and workec nis
way up to his present position. While
lu. uiu nn a visit, here he found that
the mountaineers of Haywood cot ity
had the same friendly ieenng towaru
strangers that his native home folkt
had, and for that reason he felt more
at home here than elsewhere, h said.
He stated that when was in the moun
tains he felt that he was among his
people. He has clearly demonstrated
the fact that he loves the people here,
and takes an interest in everyone in
the neighborhood of his summer home.
During the course of the conversa
tion the present economic situation
was brought up and Mr. Price referred
to it as a blessing for the nation,
"because," he said, "it is teaching us
to practice economy, which has not
been a virtue with American people.
After tViino-o retlirn to normal. We Will
find that we will have a keener inter
est in our neighbors, and there will
exist a stronger love for each other.
We will take our fellowman's interest
No matter what line of conversa
tion he is led into he always comes
back and talks of the many advantage!
of the mountain country, where he
says he wants to spend his time when
he retires from business. He thinks
a persons ast days should be their hapr
iof .n,i foola that this could be ful-
'nlled if he lived among the people he
has learned to love, the mountaineers.

Report Shows That
Business Here Is
Good For Advertisers
The general cry that times
arc hard and that every busi
ness firm is on the rocks is not well
founded, according to actual rec
rds given to thw paper by a certain
business man of Waynesville. The
stock of the store has not been
enlarged, but advertising has been
used and that, says the merchant,
accounts for the increase. -The
following figures arc gross figures:
February, 1931 $ 363.28
Increase - --
March, 1931 437.9S
March, 1932 943.39
Increase S 190.41
April, 1931 - 598.23
Just figure it out for yourself
did it pay this merchant to spend
a few dollars each month to advertise?
