IIIIIKSDAY, AUGUST 10, liKJ.i
Si-viral weeks ago two of Waynesville'.,
most prominent professional men met at our
desk and began discussing general topics of the
day, while we listened eagerly to catch their
arguments which we could see were coining, as
one leaned more to the modern things of lift
and the other called himself an old fom.
The discussion narrowed down to educa
tion, and there it settled for thirty minutt's.
"Why is it," the older said, "that the high
school graduate of today does not amount to a
much as those who graduated when I was a
From the tone of his voice we l.n,.- ih.,t
this was not the first time lie had aked that
question, but his opponent had had the ques
tion popped to him perhaps as manv times a,
the other had asked it so he was ready with his
"You and ti,e ,.esl 0 f your classmates went
to school because, you wanted an education.
Now the law makes them all attend whether
they want to or not, and you can't make a child
amount to anything just because you make him
go to school, although you have a good oppor
tunity." was the explanation given.
"The children of today may graduate from
high school diielly becau.st they are forced to
go to school eleven years, but that doe.Mi't guar
antee that they will take advantage of their
senooi uas to make something out of themsel
ves." he continued.
From that the discussion 'next" centered on
prohibition. As they were both dry thev pass,
cd on to another topic of .the day as they did
not feel like stopping -all discussions at' this
point since they were just getting in an argu
About that time a girl, still in her teens,
passed the oliice smoking.
We did not see any of the fire from her
cigarette blow into the office, but something
certainly et our two arguers on fire. One was
a smoker and the other saw no good in it, So
there was a topic.
After fifteen minutes of fast talking and
many exaggerated statements, the smoker drew
out his pipe, tilled it with his favorite brand
and proceeded to enjoy a smoke as he had never
enjoyed before. The non-smoker vowed he'd
never smoke now even if he iver had any inten
tion to do so. . ' ..
About the only topic left where there was
a difference of opinion was religion, Religion
has been the subject of many an argument, es
pecially by those who are not thoroughly' fa
miliar with it. These two men were familiar
with it, and both are Christians. The only dif
ference being of a different fiat h one a IJaptist
ami the other a Methodist. Both are loyal mem.
hers of their respective churches.
After listening for over an hour to the two
men argue on first one thing then another, and
after it was all over each was more set in hi
ways than before they started, we realized
more clearly than ever the fact that nobody ever
wins an argument.
Other than getting a few things oir their
chests and furnishing us with a subject to write
about we don't know of anything that they ac
complished during their battle of words.
As the psalmist could have written, "what
does it profiteth a man to argue when he know.
eth he can't win?"
MOKE TIME FOR LEISURE NOW
One of the features of the Industrial Re
covery Act is shorter hours for the worker, to
gether with an increase in wages. When a
person has more hours for leisure and more
money than he has had for the past several
years, it stands to reason that he is going
places and spend that money.
Where would the average person go? The
average person will go to see places that are
liff'erent from the ordinary scenes of everyday
life. He'll go where a more comfortable tem.
perture is found, and of course, he'll go to some
olace that he has heard of.
Now here is where Waynesville can cash
in on the results of the Industrial Recover,- Am
We have everything that the average person
couid wish tor that is mentioned above.
It was along this line of thought that Coi.
J. W. JIarrelson, Director North Carolina Tie
partment of Conservation and Develnnm.mt
wrote in last week's State an article headed',
vvnat are we going to do with our spare time?"
Col. Harrelson went on to say, "Under the
of) and 40 hour week, the worker finds at least
two full days of leisure on his hands. If we
could be assured that he would start a garden,
improve his home, or find other profitable em
ployment for this period, the problem would be
automatically solved; but such will not be the
case with all workers Whui r u, u.. i......
Liii.-n.: who jive
in cities and do not own a home, and who do not
knew how to find constructive pastime "
It is this group that Waynesville will have
an opportunity to reach and get to come here
and spend their leisure time.
Col. Harrelson goes on with his article say
ing. "It is never disputed that wholesome out
door activities are among the most beneficial
forms of recreation, both for mental relaxation
and improvement and for building sound and
vigorous bodies. A broader program for the
conservation of our natural resources will go
far toward bringing our people into closer con
tact with the outdoors. Some of the more im
portant angles of such a policy would be ac
quisition by the state parks ami establishment
of state fortsts to furnish recreational grounds
perpetually open to the public and for demon
strations in scientific forestry."
Small roadside parks scattered at conven
ient intervals along the highways of the state
were also suggested by ('ol. Harrelson. These
would be used by picnickers.
What a splendid opportunity this country
.affords for such a program, and since the Ameri
can people will now have more leisure time it
seems that such a program is more sorely need,
ed than ever before.
With the closing paragraph of his article
the state official stated: "A well known judge
was quoted recently as saying that in all his
years of experience on the bench, he had never
sentenced a sportsman for a criminal offense,
fs this not a testimonial in behalf of interesting
ur people in the out doors and encouraging
them to indulge in its facilities for recreation"
That last. 'point seems to climax the whole
