THURSDAY, JULY .14, 1932
The special Court House edition recently
published by The Mountaineer has been given
quite a bit of publicity recently and several
letters of congratulations have been received.
The Hendersonville Times-News, a daily
paper in our neighboring county of Henderson
had the following to say in regard to the edition',
"A splendid 24-page edition of The Way
nesville Mountaineer, celebrating the comple
tion of Haywood County's new court house, has
been received by this newspaper. The new
county building, which it is said cost $240,000,
is evidently one of the finest in the State. The
special edition of The Mountaineer not only
presents a record of the, courthouse construc
tion but makes an impressive showing for the
town and county."
Harvey Holleman, director of public works
at The American Enka Plant said the follow
ing about the edition:
"The Enka Library has received copy of
your special Court House edition of The Moun
taineer, which is wonderful. Goodwill and
prosperity premeate the pages and it reminds
one of the good old times in Western North
Bruce Webb, promotion director of the
AsheviUe Citizen-Times, and also the most
prominent figure in the sponsoring of the 5-10
year farm program for Western North Caro
lina during the past few months said in a letter:
"I have just finished reading your Court
House edition, and congratulate you on it. The
breadth of reading matter is most noticeable
and should do much to convince "Haywoodites"
that they have a fine old county."
The Rutherfordtoa News had the follow

WATCH YOUR HEALTH
It is a known fact that here in Western
North Carolina living conditions are far
better than anywhere else east of the Rockies
and south of the Mason-Dixon line. Even with
all the blessings of nature bestowed upon us
we sometimes drift into a habit of neglecting
our health and letting it look after itself only
after we have gorged ourselves with the things
that are really harmful to our bodies. During
the sumer time the body is usually unable to
throw off the many disease germs that the ave
rage person is thrown in contact with, which
makes it more important that we watch our
food, and also keep ourselves alert to the dan
gers of Catching these dreaded diseases.
In speaking along this same line The
Rutherfordton News says:
"In times like these when we encounter
such strong competition in the professional and
business world it behooves us all to keep our
physical vigor. Being in the proverbial "pink
of condition" today is a requisite to success.
"Maintaining our health imposes no diffi
cult task upon us. If we get plenty of sleep,
exercise moderately, keep out in the open .in
our spare time relax occasionally and forego
needless worry we will I have gone far toward
keeping in shape.
"So far as foods are concerned, the simpl
er the diet the better. Plenty of vegetables
and fruits, liberal quantities of water, and not
too much pastry and heavy desserts are recom
mended by physicians. We should not neglect
a nourishing breakfast consisting of our favor
ite beverage, a cereal which contains cellulose,
to add elimination, some fruit-juice and, if we
have sufficient appetite eggs or sausage this
is an ideal morning meal.
"It will pay all of us to follow such simple
and easy health rules. If we want to keep up
with the other fellow and outdistance competi
tion we can make no better start than to get
in good physical condition and keep that way."
CANNON AND POLITICS
Bishop James Cannon, Jr., of political and
stock market fame, to say nothing of church
activities, is against an insurgent against the
great political party to which he paid allegiance
for so many years. His address at the Lake
Auditorium Sunday morning left no doubt in
the minds of his hearers as to just where he
stands politically this year. To what extent
he will go in his efforts to herd the Methodist
of the country into the folds of the Republican
party with his cry of prohibition cannot be pre.
dieted at this time. It is safe to say, however,
that his influence is nothing like what it was
four years ago. Then those who followed him
did so mostly for the reason that they balked at
voting for a Catholic and not on the ground
that Smith was wet.
In spite of the fact that the Bishop re
fuses to answer when asked the direct question
as to whom he would support for President,
his sermon left no doubt in the minds of his
hearers that he will give his strength to the
reelection of President Hoover. His compari
son of the Democratic and Republican platforms
in the matter of prohibition made it perfectly
plain that of the two he considered the Republi
can platform dry as compared with the wet
ness of the Democratic plank, in his opinion.
Not only this but his comparison of the last
utterance of both Mr. Hoover and Mr. Roose
velt on the prohibition question left no doubt
in the minds of his audience that he consider
ed Mr. Hoover a dry and Mr. Roosevelt a wet,
based on his interpretation of these utterances.
Naturally Bishop Cannon strongly urged
and advised that all church people make it a
point to discover where each candidate from
that for the presidency to township constable
stands on the matter of prohibition and then
vote for the man who is dry or the dryest. AH
of which leaves the thinking citizen unable to
form any opinion except that the Bishop will
support the Republican ticket and do what he
can to lead his church followers to do likewise.
After all there is nothing in the Bishop's
attitude to surprise any one. He bolted the
party four years ago and has never yet been
brought to the point where he was willing to
return home. It is unfortunate that he even
now fails to see the trend of public opinion and
to realize that he is fighting a futile battle that
only in defeat renders his cause more and more
hopeless regardless of its moral points.
There are larger things at stake this year
than prohibition intolerance. Upon the victory
or defeat of the Democratic party this year
rests the economic fate of this nation for the
next four years. Regardless of which party
is elevated to power the question of the eigh
teenth amendment will come to the people as
a whole for a decision. Neither party can
change the constitution otherwise and after all
when the people speak a majority must and
will rule. Therefore the blame cannot be at
tached to the Democratic party because it is
only fair that the people now have an oppor
tunity to speak their minds and whatever their
decision shall be it will be for the temperance
leaders to begin anew a fight for the outlawry
of the Whiskev traffic not alone by laws of the
state and nation but through the actual desires
of the people themselves.
In the death of Frank Nash there passes
from the stage of action in North Carolina one
of the ablest lawyers cf his generation. To
few men of his profession has it been given to
labor for so many years. The happy thought
in this connection is that by far the most of
his labors were spent in a effort to serve his
state and his fellow men.
Frank Nash was a man trusted by the pub
lic as will shown by his record as a public
servant. From the mayor of his home town
he rose by rapid strides to the office of Senator
and later to that of assistant attorney general
of the state, an office which he ably filled for
many years. Recently he had been discharg
ing the duties of the clerk of the supreme court.
To Mr. Nash it was given to live through
that period when North Carolina, his native
state, struck her stride and came into her own,
and no one rejoiced in her development and
her progress more than did he.
In his. passing the state loses a citizen
who played his part and played it well. North
Carolina is a greater state because of his life

The grading of the court house grounds
has made a decided improvement and it now
begins to look like some of the government
buildings in Washington. The huge shovel,
during the past few days has tackled the job
and made much headway in leveling the surplus
dirt on the front into terraces in the rear of
the building. When the walks are laid in front
the looks of the building will be improved 100
We have noticed that during the past few
days many tourists have stopped in front of
the new court house and gazed at its beauty
for some time. It is truly a building of strik
ing beauty that any one can't help stopping

One of the outstanding things that has
been done during the past few weeks in the
national political circles was the immediate ac
ception by Governor Roosevelt of the Demo
cratic nomination for president in order to save
expenses. It seems that he has got right down
to the trend of the day to save every penny .that
he could, and certainly the old custom of being
officially "notified',' several weeks after the con
vention is out of date, and certainly an added
expense that is worth nothing. We believe
that if Mr. Roosevelt will practice that brand
of economy throughout the coming three mon
ths that he will have little trouble in being
elected. ' . " '
