THE RIGHT TIME FOR WAYNESVILLE TO
One of the last things The Mountaineer
ever expects to do is to try to dictate to any
group of officials how to run their business and
we hope that the County Commissioner and
City Board of Aldermen will see the suggestion
that we have to make in that light.
If there ever was a time in the history ot
Haywood County that public funds need to be
spent carefully and wisely, and when a dollar
can be spent to save .several we believe that it
should be done. That point seems to lie the
present situation of both town and county.
Within the next few days the county commis
sioners are going to let a contract to grade the
court house grounds and terrace the grounds
from the building to Depot Street. While the
county is almost compelled to do this it seems
that it is an opportune time for the city to join
in and widen Depot Street at the court house
There is no doubt about it that Depot
Street will in a few years be the main highway
leading into the park via Soco dap and through
the Mt. Sterling section, and the present, width
of the street is not nearly wide enough to care
for the trallic now passing along this route, to
say nothing' about the heavy travel after the
park officially opened.
While the grading is being done on the
court house grounds it would be a simple mat
ter to just grade back about 10 feet further
into the grounds and widen' the street. If the
widening of the street is not done at this time,
we understand that the county intends to ter
race the court house grounds all the way to the
street, and then after that is done the city would
have an expensive job to build new terraces and
place new sod on the yard in a few years when
the park traffic would demand a wider street.
The citizens of the city would be saved a
large sum of money and would show that we
really believe that the Soco Cap road into the
WEAVER STILL OPTIMISTIC OVER THE
The Eleventh Congressional District is for
tunate in having a representative in Washing
ton that has the courage to carry on, when the
people back home offer little encouragement
on the many different problems confronting the
Congressman of today. We are speaking of
none other than Zebulon Weaver, the man that
is working day in and day out to help this sec
tion of North Carolina, probably more than any
other single man.
Last week Mr. Weaver submitted to the
Congressional committee on banking and fin
ance the park bill to secure $1,500,000 for the
purchase of park lands in Western North Caro
lina and Eastern Tennessee. We hesitate to
says this, but there is a lot of truth in it. Many
people right here in sight of the park doubt
its ever becoming developed, in spite of the
fact that we have representatives in Washing
ton doing everything possible to develop the
The Mountaineer sincerely hopes that the
citizens of this section will get a little more
faith and muster up enough courage to look
into the future and become convinced that we
have a project here that will make Western
North Carolina known throughput the entire
world. If Mr. Weaver did not believe and have
faith that he could get the fin nd banking
committee to let the park commission have
funds to buy park lands, don't believe that he
would be wasting his time on the matter.
Mr. Weaver is optimistic and working for
the development of the park, what are we do
ing to help? Since beginning this the idea
came to us that perhaps it would be fitting to
send our Congressman a little note of apprecia
tion and a word of encouragement. We know
ho would appreciate it and it would show that
we are really approving the work he is striv
ing to get aciross for all of us.
On June 4 the voters showed that they ap
preciated Mr. Weaver by their votes and gave
him a large majority over all other opponents.
Now it would be the proper thing to give him
encouragement so that he will be able to re
turn the help that was given him in the June
park will become a reality. Hut even if the
park were not envolved into the matter, there
is certainly not going to be parking space on
Main street for the cars of people that have
business in the court house, and Depot Street
could be used for parking to a good advantage
until the park opens up.
The architect in charge of landscaping the
grounds said that if this were decided upon be
fore the grading was started the cost
would be small and would not interfere with
the present plans of the Commissioners to
beautify the court house grounds. To save the'
citizens money on this matter immediate ac
tion must be had. The Board of Aldermen
should take steps along this line, and we firmly
believe that every citizen in the city will Lnck
them up to the last peg.
We believe that the widening of Depot
Street will bear much weight upon the State
Highway Commission in putting the park road
through Soco Gap.
