Waynesville, N. C.
Dear Mr. Kditor:
In amnion. 1 assure, with a great
number of community-minded folk
within the area served by our paper,'
I have lead with much interest the
letter of Mr. C. M. Picus, and your
editorial comment thereon. The idea
is certainly of far-reaching signifi
cance if put into a workable plan of
organization such as suggested by
Mr- Diais' letter. It will require a
"long pull, and null all tofether" k,
perfect sin-h a plan, but once perfect
ed it would go far toward placing
this community in its rightful "Place
in the Sun."
Realizing that the co-operation of
everyone is important, if the sug
gestion is to become a reality, I am
ready at all times to render any pos

Within a limited time after the
first lot of letters was mailed I re

plies. Indicative ot the reaction from
various classes I quote the following
excerpts from some of the responses
now in mv tile:
From a district judge in Kentucky:
"I shall b0 more than glad to go out

it is possible for us to do so.".

$50,000, and an assestment was made
on the stock ladders immediately after
the bank closed. Something like $14,
000 lias been paid in by the stock
holders, it was said.
The bank officials were allowed to
reopen the bank and accept new ac
counts after the bank closed with
many others in the fall of l'J-Ji). The
bank remained open for IS months and
made every effort to collect monies
due the bank, but because of the eco
nomic situation and their inability to
nniKe collections, they suspended busi
ness and moved the new accounts to
the First National Hank.
Mr. Burns arrived here the next
day, September 20th, and took charge
of the old bank's business affairs.
