'.- ;iu. meeting last Friday night,
during t!i.' two-hour discussion, sev
eral pies, 'lit expressed :h:' opinion
:m,t Hr- Waynesville District Cham
i.er (,f Commerce might conflict' with
:he piestn Waynesville Chamber oi
Commerce, while others took a dif
ferent view. The general opinion of
;he meeting, was, however, tha; this
city and community was not large
enough fm- two similar organizations
and it seemed be.-t to center all ef
forts on one such organization.
J. F. Massie, president of the Way
ntsville Chamber of Commerce, had
planned to have a meeting of the di
rectors of that organization Tuesday,
but several were out of town and was
postponed until they returned to the
city. He stated Wednesday morning
that he hoped to have this meeting
before Friday night and have the
board express their views on the mat
ter, and present some definite plans
at the meeting Friday night.
Mr. Massie stated that if he did
not get the directors together in a
meeting before Friday night, that he
expected to be present at the meeting
At last Friday's meeting, C. M.
Dicus was elected president of the or
ganization, but at his request the
meeting rescined this vote. Mr.
Dicus was then made temporary
chairman of the meeting.
After a motion was presented from
the floor for the adoption of the Dis
trict Chamber of Commerce plan, a
vote was taken, and the majority was
in favor of proceeding with the elec
tion of officers for the organization.
The minority, however, insisted in
holding the matter open and consult
ing the directors of the Waynesville
Chamber of Commerce. The meeting
was then adjourned until this Fri
day night, thus giving the minority
the opportunity to go into the matter
with the directors.
According to the vote ef 'the ma
jority present last Friday night, un,
less some other plan is offered to
morrow night, the election of officers
for the Waynesville I'istriot -.I'.ha'hm
'her -of Commerce will be held.
140 Attended The
Here Last Saturday
(By William Turner. i
We held our Father and -Son. ban
quet" 'April the first. The boys pro
vided all the food stuff necessary.
We started with our regular open
ing ceremony having the officers fixed
under their simbols. It being "All
Fools Day" we decided to play a joke
on the green hands. We made them
think that they were not going to get
anything to eat. After several num
bers of music from the '"Aggie band"
the Home Economics girls served us.
We had started eating: and someone
remarked that we hadn't fed the green
hands, After a laugh at their ex
pense we gave them their plate.
After feasting for quite a while we
called on several people for a speech.
We had Arthur Francis to give his
speech on "Taxation as a Farm Relief
Measure," Which he will giv, ?.n
Raleigh sometime in June.
After it was all over we voted it
a great success.
G rover Davis was the speaker of
the evening. He gave a ;ood short
talk which was enjoyed by everyone.
Others made short talk'.

Haywood Senator Would Place
License Fee On All Koad
Signs In State
The perennial question1 of regulat
ing the signboard advertising along
the highways of the state has been
put before the lfKi.'! session of the
general assembly in a bill offered in
the senate by Senator W. R. Francis
and which is now before the senate
roads committee, with indications that
it will receive a favorable report,
;; If the Haywood senator's bill should
pass, all persons, firms or corpora
tions placing signboards along the
roads of the state would have to ob
tain a license from the commissioner
of revenue, and observe certain regu
lations which would prevent the clut
tering of the highways with unsightly
The signboard advertisers would
have to pay a license fee based on the
size of the signboard put Up. The
ra.e would he five cents per square
foot, the license feet in no instance to
be less than $2. This licensewould
have to obtained each year. The
fund collected from this source would
go to the state '-highway commission
and would have to be Used toward the
beautification of the highways.
The money, it is proposed would be
used for the planting of shrubbery
and other growth along the roads.
The movement to keep the highways
free from unsightly advertising, de
stroying the natural beauty of many
of the roads, is an old one in North
Carolina, but those who are interested
in the movement have been particular
ly active of late, and it is expected
that the general assembly will take
some action on the matter.
Considerable opposition to the bill,
however, comes from outdoor adver
tisers. It is believed that the bill
would eliminate many of the smaller
signboards from the highways and
discourage the promiscuous placing
of "eyesores" along the roads of the

several hundred of the men to Ik given
employment could be used to a good
advantage in removing jetties from

Representative Weaver's letter to
the I'resident in full follows:
"I'resident I'Tankling I). Roosevelt,
"The White House,

"My dear Mr. I'resident:
"I .tm interested in your proposal
contained m n. k. otioa. itenei oi un
employment through the performance
of useful public work and for other
"My interest is immediate because
of the fact thai a large area of na
tional forest '.lands' are situated in my
district,1 -which includes a large part
of the western portion of North Caro
lina, and for the further rea-on that
one. half of the tlreat Snioky Moun
tains National J'ark lies within this
aiea. Both old1 national forests and
this national park, area, arc, and wil!
continue to lie. great ly beiloicial fo. the

the whole of Fas ern America, and I
trust thi'Sc ala as shall be "considered
fully, in tdlociiting a jioition of: the

to call your- particular attention in

river for the purpo-e of constricting
the river flow and peepening the, course
of the stream. This attempt, however,
proved impractical and wis abandon

North Carolina, the binds ale very
fertile, bottom lands, and the con
struction of these jetties, with the ac

continuous overflows and ,flo ding of

removed by the war department. This
survey was merged into a larger sur

"The people of these two counties
are extremely anxious to have a por
