THE l'KOI'OSi;i) WAVNESVILLE DISTKICT
CHAMIiEIl 01' COMMERCE
The Mountaineer has boon impressed with
the large' number of comments made 'favoring
the proposed civic organization of a Waynes
vi;le District Chamber of Commerce by C. M.
Dicus, which va published in last week's paper.
Not all of the comment made has been in
lavur of tin- proposed plan, however, and those
expressing oipo-ii ion to it were as sincere in
their views ;i- those favoring it, but we find
that the genera1 opinion is. as far as revealed
hall continue to support any and
'which we believe arc uplifting
betterment of our community,',
e time we are always willing to
those seeing things differently.

THE CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE
Our sympathy goes out to the citizens of
the nation who lost heavily of their property
and in many instances members of their fami
lies or loved-ones, in the California Earthquake.
As terrible as the earthquake was, it also
had another side to it, in that it made the rest
of the country stop thinking so much about thp
bai.k situation and look at the suffering and ,
.-onow wnicn nact befallen the western shore
of our nation.
Many people throughout our nation have
been comparing everything in life with gold
and .vih-c-r, and during the past few weeks they
have stuck even closer to that ihun
with the scenes of devastation of the California
aitlHjuake in their minds, we feel that many
ih look beyond their financial troubles and
isualize the suffering and sorrow that can
really befall a nation.
And again, we repeat, our sympathy goes
"tit to all those affected in any way by the
earthquake, but since it had to happen, it seems
Unit it was indeed a blessing that it should
"-uir at the crisis of the financial situation
i bring our nation face to face with the fact,

'. euuiu.v omciai last week,
that those now on the charity list and receiv
ing help would be checked on and all those not
planting gardens and trying to help themselves
would not receive aid next year.
This same official told us that a record was
-.being made of those who were offered jobs and
relused to take them because they felt that
the county will care for them. These persons
will be .-omewhat overcome next fall when thev
hml that they can no longer depend on charity.
Citizens in each community should inform
I hose now receiving charity, just what plans
are being made for next winter, and should try
l make the "destitute" realize the importance
of having at least a garden.
We believe that next 'winter it is goinir to be
a difficult task to get charity assistance.
WHAT COULD BE PLAINER?
Last Sunday morning Rev. II. W. IJaucom
pastor of the First Baptist church, brought to
his congregation a most timely and uplifting
message. lie used as his text, a scripture verse
that seems was perhaps written just for this
nation at this time, II Chronicles, 7th Chapter
and 14th verse:
"If My people, which are called by Mv
n.i ..1. 11 . . . J
......, Mian numoie themselves, and pray
and seek my face, and turn from their wick
ed ways; then will I hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sins, and will .heal their
A few of the remarks made by Rev Mr
l.aucom were as follows:
"This seems to be a cure for the world's
"A cure for the depression
"The world seems to have forgotten God,

We suggest that those of our readers who

and read every word of it.
The average person knows very little about
the banking: system of our nation other than
how to make deposits and write out checks, and
only a limited knowledge of that.
Our President presented some interesting
and educational facts in his address and it is
