PROSPECTS FOR WELFARE OFFICER
After a survey last week, we find that there
is much public sentiment being aroused over
the suggestion made in this column recently
regarding a welfare officer for Haywood county.
We feel somewhat encouraged over the fact
that the general trend of public sentiment is
toward that end, and believe that eventually
this county will have a welfare officer.
The city of Canton is now employing a
welfare officer for six months in the year, and
authentic reports from that place are to the
effect that conditions are "very much improv
ed" among the unfortunates since the employ
ment of this officer. What an officer has done
in one part of the county could be accomplished
in the entire county. Surely the civic and busi
ness leaders of this county are not going to try
to get through this winter without some defi
nite outlined program to take care of the poor
in a systematic manner, in preference to the
kosely conducted way charity is now being
The Board of County Commissioners -e
believe, would gladly cooperate with a central
charity organization in this work, and would
appropriate a sum toward the salary of a wel-

the Board of Commissioners will see that the
ether halt is provided wjien the citizens of this
county get down to brass tacks and organize a
charity organization and throw themselves
whole-heartedly into the work.
The version we take on. the matter is, that
me people must act first, and then county and
state officials will follow, with moral and finan
cial support. We can't expect the commission
ers to do something we are not willing to do ourselves.-
This week three communities will have their
annual fairs, and many interesting displays of
farm and home-grown products will be shown.
These fairs are the beginning, we believe, of a
large county fair for this county. The interest
we take in these community fairs will deter
mine largely whether or not we will have a
There are two reasons why we should at
tend these community fairs, first, those put
ting on the fairs and fixing the displays deserve
our cooperation; second, it is of educational
value to us to see what other folks are doing,
and we should take advantage of learning and
getting new ideas.
As we have said before in this column, "as
the farmer lives, so lives the county'" can be
well used here, because in these fairs we car.
see how the farmers are going to live this
UNITED STATES IS PROGRESSIVE (?)

tionincreasing the postage rates in order that
we might tear down good post office buildings
so that we build another just like it only at a
greater cost. How many 3-cent stamps and
postal cards will it take, after costs of printing
and selling are deducted, to pay for the new 12
million dollar post office building in Washing
ton? With things like these before we continue
to say we are "the greatest nation on earth,"
When we ought to say "we are the greatest
wasters on earth."
THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING RACKET
The United States Government scatters
approximately 300,000 pamphlets, documents
and bound books over the country every work
In the 1931 fiscal :ear the Printing Office
issued, almost 3,500,000,000 copies of printed
matter. It is now doing still better. In the
six months following July 1, 1931, the amount
of type was 129,000,000 ems. greater than in
the same period the previous year.
This is at a time when taxes of all kinds
have jumped, in the face of a lowered national
income. The government printing department
offers a fertile field for some real and needed
Literally, speaking, it cost the tax payers
of Haywood County last year $95,000.00 for
the indebtedness on her schools. Some of this
was used in paying the principle, and some on
repairs, but the molt of it was on debts. The
state spent $102,319.24 on schools in the county,
outside of the Beaverdam schools which are
under special charter.
SENDING CHILDREN TO SCHOOL
In the news columns of this paper last week
there was an article about a man of this county
being sent to jail because he refused to send
his children to school, and which impressed us,
, not because he was sent to jail, but to know
that within our county there are people that
deliberately refuse to send their children to
We do not know all the facts mentioned
in the news article, and are not necessarily
centering our remarks on this one case, but to
all who have at any time refused to send their
children to school.
From one standpoint, it is a selfish motive
on the part of the parent that keeps most child
ren home, and usually in order that the child
ren might work. This attitude not only de
prives the child of an education, but also places
upon the community in later years a person of
little education and culture; to say nothing of
the feeling the children will have for their par
ents in later years when they can see for them
selves the need for an education.
There is a law that provides that all child
ren of school age (14 and under) shall be sent
to school, and we understand that the school
authorities are going to see to it that this law
is earned out, and all those failing to obey this
law will be dealt with severely.
It is not so much the fact of obeying the
law that we should see that children are sent
to school, but from the standpoint of duty as
parents, and as progressive citizens. We do
not honestly believe that any parents can truth
fully say that they want their children to grow
into manhood and womanhood ignorant, and
yet they seem to delight in knowing that this
very thing will happen when they refuse to
send them to school.
The school authorities tippH tha
tion of all citizens in seeing to it that children
of school age are in school. Our civic pride
and love for our county and country should
prompt us to press each case until we see that
our aim is accomplished in an effort to wipe
out illiteracy from the borders of our county.
During the next few weeks the mountain
sides will change from their summer attire to
colors that painters have long sought to copy
on canvas, but as yet without success, because
nature alone possess the talent to transfer foli
age into as many colors as will soon be seen in

developed and opened to the public that there
will be more travel through here during the
fall months than at any other time of the year.
Certainly, if the tourists ever get a glimpse of
the mountains here during the month of Oc
tober, it will be more than they can resist
the next year and will return, bringing with
them those whom they believe will also enjfiy
the place "where nature did her best."
BUSINESS HERE IS GOOD
The Asheville Citizen last weplr hart Mr
McCoy, of their staff, to make a business survey
of Haywood county and find out what the actual
existing conditions prevailing in the county at
mis time were, rnis survey was made in con
nection with similar investigations of all the
omer counties or western North Carolina.
Mr. McCov brouzht out the fact that
ditions here were on the imwarH frond RnaL
ness in Haywood county will not have to climb
as nign m oraer to get back to normal as in
some other counties. Haywood county was
slower in contracting a case of bad business than
most other sections.
Then, too, Haywood county has more things
to draw from than most places. If our crops
fail, we still have tourists, apples, cattle, manu
facturing to draw from.

HOW TO GET BUSINESS
The Ford Motor Co. three years ago spent
$1,000,000 in advertising and got $500,000,000
worth of business as a result. Yet, many mer
chants and business men wonder how to get
more business. There is only one way, do more
advertising. All successful merchants spend
at least 3 per cent of their income for adver
tising. People read ads more today than ever
before. Thrifty housewives scan the papers
to see where to buy and who is offering the
greatest values. If you want to get more busi
ness, do more advertising.
If you doubt this, asjc those who have tried.
SIXTY-FOUR WAYNESVILLE YOUNG
PEOPLE IN COLLEGE
Some Deonle Would have ns hpliWo fhnt
young people of today were good-for-nothing
and too lazy to get in out of a shower of rain.
To this kind of talk we should remind them
of the fact that 64 of Waynesville's young peo
ple that graduated from the local high school
are in college this year. There are more than
64 from here in college, this number only in
cluded those graduating from the Waynesville
high school. We believe this is more than will
be found in other towns in North Carolina.
Are you advertising Waynesville to the
world? There is no excuse now for not doing
so, for we have the advertising material. Get

Right at this time of year every'communi
ty seems to more or less be infested with travel
ing salesmen that try to sell everything from
socks at five cents a pair with a half dozen
magazines thrown in, to an all-wool suit for
$7.50. It should be remembered that these
agents don't help pay taxes to support schools,
civic welfare, or anything else. They come
here for business and don't contribute one
thing to the town. v
We patronize these parasites and then have
the brass to fuss and fume because the mer
chants don't keep everything you can think of.

see if you are not convinced that a dollar spent
with a traveling salesman that does not live
