Thc Geological Aspect of Haywood
'vnmy una some of the History
of Its Making
The area of Haywood County is
546 square miles. It's bounds, with
the miner exceptions, conforms to the
drainage area, oc watershed, of the
Pigeon river south of the Great
East of Canton, the county line
itacnts over into the drainage area
of the French Broad, taking in North
Hominy and South Hominy creeks,
or about twenty-sne- square miles.
The other exception is in the Pisgah
egion, where the line runs a straight
course between big Pisgah and Lit
tle Pisgah, cutting, oft into Bun
combs one or two hundred acres cf
ihe Pigeon watershed.
This watershed Haywood County
is quite interesting and unique in
several respects. The fact that the
county line conforms so nearly to a
watershed usually. This watershed
hasi a greater average elevation than
any other major drainage are in the
ooutnern Appalachian, and this means
the greatest east of the Mississippi
iiver. 11 is, on an average, about
five hundred feet higher than the
French Broad watershed; one thous
and fX'et higher than the Little
Tennessee, or any of its larger trib
utaries; and about fifteen hundred
feet higher than the Hiwassee.
The lowest point in the county,
1400 feet above sealevel, is, of
course, at Waterville, where the
Pigeon crosses into Tennessee. The
highest point, 6'J21 feet, is the top

League Of Women Voters
To Meet Here October 26
Announcement was made yesterday
that the League Of Women Voters of
Haywood County would meet at the
Court House at 3 o'clock on October
26th. Plans are being made to secure
a prominent speaker to address the
meeting. Further plans will be an- vited to attend, said Sam
nounced in this paper next week. way, president.
That it U not a paying proposition
tio chairge higher rates than the
traffic will bear, is illustrated by the
experience of the Post Office Depart
ment in the matter of three-cent
etttr postage. It is : revealed that
during July and August,; the two
months immediately following the en
actment of increased rates, postal rev
enues were about the same as for the
corresponding months of 1931. This
indicates that the volume of mail for
the period in question was less this
year than last. It also indicates that
a larger proportion of letters are lie-
mg sent third-class this year than last
When the new revenue bill was en
acted, it '.-was estimated that Federal
revenues would be increased to ' the
extent of $161,000,000 a year by; high
er postal rates, but it is already hian.
ifest that these estimates were entire,
ly too optimistic .
In a recent public address, Post
master-General Walter ; r. Brown
pointed out that the Department was
not mistaken when it anticipated that
increased rates would not meet with
favor, and he urged that the prime
objective should now be to get back
to the two-cent postage, rate at the
:arliest possible moment.

would receive about $10,000 of this
amount provided a welfaae officer

Another point was brought out at
the meeting whereby the county would
be making a good investment to take
one-half of a wellfare officer's sal

the remainder of the fund was
properly distributed. It was stated
that more good could be done with
