' SUPPORT THE NEW PRESIDENT
The November winds have blown the
smoke away; the roar of tens of thous
ands of political speeches have faded
away, and for four long years the U. S.
will travel along unmolested by another
presidential election unless something un
The president of the United States
has been elected by the people, although
he was not the choice of all, he was the
choice of the majority, and now it is the
patriotic duty of every citizen in this
country to get behind Herbert Hoover
and support him until he leaves the White
House next March fourth and then to
stand squarely behind Franklin D. Roose
velt from then henceforth.
What is a president? He is only a
human being that has been selected irom
the millions of people to guide them and
look after their interest in governmental
affairs. He is not a king. He can't make
demands that have only selfish motives
behind them. The president of the Unit
ed States is a hired worker of yours. You
help pay his salary to look after your in
terest, and if you are constantly criticiz
ing his work sooner or later the outcome
will be unsatisfactory to all concerned.
A CLEAN CAMPAIGN
Few political battles h ave been fought
as clean as the one which just ended Tues
day. Both parties did their, best to get the
most votes, naturally, but we believe it
can be truthfully said of both parties that
only clean wholesome tactics were used.
Of course, there might have been a few
individuals that tried to pull little things
that were not becoming to the party of
their affiliation, but this was done with
out the sanction of the party under whose
name most of this type of work was pull
We bojieve there were more real
honest-to-goodness facts and principles
used in this campaign than in any cam
paign in many years prior to this. There
was little mud-slinging done except by a
few minor politicians who were trying to
crash the front pages with-their remarks,
but this was hard to do. The harsh poli
tician this time found it hard to get many
newspapers to print anything except
So after all has been said and done,
the voters of this country owe to the poli
ticians a bow for the cleanliness and fair
ness of the recent election. May the same
continue through the years, and the old
mud-slinging, lambasting method be forgotten.
THE FARM PAGE
Haywood County farmers will find
this week in this paper a page devoted to
things of general interest to them. Each
week the page will contain facts and in
teresting articles which the publishers
trust will be read. Special emphasis is
being placed upon the exchange of ideas
of farmers. That is one of the best ways
of learning to do things better talking
over problems with those who are con
stantly confronted with similar ones. If
you have a problem which you have solv
ed to your satisfaction send it in to this
paper for the benefit of your fancier
friends of this county. j
Cheer up. The election is over and
Christmas is 38 shopping days off.
AMERICA NEEDS TO SIGN ANOTH
Fourteen years have passed since the
guns on the Western Front were silenced.
but only two days have passed since
America stopped fighting. Not with guns
and implements of Warfare, but with
phrases, letters, speeches of all descrip
tions, radio talks, newspaper comments,
and even straw votes.
With these fourteen . years and two
days behind us, America should now com
bine all forces together and go after the
only reward of peace happiness. The
government can't do it alone, the states
can't do it, neither the county, nor city, but
the individual must work out to his or her
satisfaction what really constitutes hap
piness. In 1918 the general belief was that if
Germany would sign the armistice,
the whole world would be forever happy;
but we were not. No sooner had the
roar of the crowd vanished than we
were engaged in another war not firing
but fighting among our selves for the al
mighty dollar the curse of any nation.
Immediately after the war prices
soared; men thought there would be no
end to the prosperity era; then came the
slump, and in '24 and '26 a rise, and then
another slump and from then down, down,
down went prices with millions being
thrown out of employment, and thousands
of bread lines formed to care for the hun
gry. On this Armistice Day we can get a
lesson from the soldiers who fought for
their country during the war. Yhen
they got over into foreign soil they were
fighting against the odds, but they' did
not give up. On and on they went until
they forced Germany to sign the Armis
tice Needless to say, they won the fight,
because they knew they were fighting for
the right, and with fear and selfishness
left behind they'-went forward through
the opposing line.
If America today would leave fear
and selfishness entirely out of this battle
with the economic situation, it would take
only a short time until the front lines of
the depression would be shattered and
again this country could add to her vic
tories that of defeating one of the' worst
enemies ever known to attack this coun
try. The battle cannot be won with fear
and selfishness predominating, however.
HAYWOOD'S TOBACCO CROP
The tobacco farmers of this county
should be encouraged over the present
tobacco crop. Indications are that prices
will be about the same as last year or bet
ter, and with a fair crop this year the
farmer will realize more than most of
them did last year when the grade was
not so good. The quality of this year's
crop is superior to that of last year, ac
cording to Asheville tobacco men who
made a trip through this county last week
on an inspection tour.
Tobacco is a tedious crop to handle
properly, but those who understand it
thoroughly and with favorable weather,
usually always see a balance at the end
of the season. We venture to say that
before many years have passed, tobac
co will be One of Western N orth Carolina's
greatest money crops. ; It is feared that
once the farmers begin to realize large
profits from their tobacco crops oth
er crops will be dropped from their list
and many will plant tobacco exclusively.
In that case the tobacco crop in this coun
try would not be so valuable. :
One of the best boosters for the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park is
"Tours In The Great Smokies," edited by
J. L. Caton, at Knoxville. Thousands of
these bulletins are sent out each month to
different parts of the nation telling of the
wonders to be found within the park area.
Even to us right at the park, there
yet remains much for "us to learn about
what nature has bestowed upon this sec
tion of the country.
It is publications like Mr. Caton's
that will eventually make our dreams
about the park come true.
Radio authorities predict ; that the air
will be cleared of static for the rest of the
winter after November 8th. Anyone that
has been keeping up with the election
could have guessed that.

would the ordinary citizen have an
extra burden of taxes. The tmall

the soldier did not leave his home and

sufficient evidence of his physical
condition being such that he needed

European countries twenty-two bil
