STIRRING IT THE PI BLIC
Si.nit' ot tin- loading citizens of Haywood
I'cuntv have during the past few weeks come
..tit openly and denounced the crime .situa
tion in this county, and Haywood happens to
ad the state in the number of crimes commit,
red according to population.
Last week The Mountaineer printed the ad
dress delivered by Sam M. Robinson to the
Parent Teaohei-s Association at Canton, in
vhich Mr. Robinson offered criticism of the
oresent svstem of law enforcement.
This week we are publishing the address
'nut l)r S. I'. (Jay, president of the Rotary Club
delivered belore tile club last Friday. We are
also giving, in part, the sermon ol Dr. L. I!.
Hayes, presiding elder of this district, delivered
Each of these three public spirited men
hit the nail on the hi ad with their remarks and
with the facts t hat wviv- set forth. It seems
that the public' is getting stirred up about tin
present exist ing crime situation, w hich i right
iv HayWifou's biggest liability.
We believe that those who .want to sev
Haywood come out of the rank of leading lw
state in crime, will get behind such people as
: he t line mentioned above and others who will
'-.peak pubjicly later tiii the -same-. subject.
Those- who have cared little for themselves
or rheir county are the ones that have brought
Haywood County to the present rank in the
-Uite. and il is going to take the , oinbined effort
of those vho do not want to e this county
i(maiii in -tich a state of affairs to get together
and bring her out. Read the views of the men
who have given much time and thought to these
iiiest ions, and talk them over with vour neigh,
wor and it won't be long before the law abiding
Citizens of Haywood Countv will be organized
into one body for the purpose of putting an end
"o excess crime.
THE NATl'KE OF SOME PEOPLE
'I here are three classes of people that the
world could better do without than they can
do with them, and thev are hraggers. idle talk
ers and I iiockers It these three classes fit
anywhere into present clay walks of life we are
yet to hear of it.
What is worse than getting in company
with a man or woman who knows nothing but
to brag on himself or herself. A person that
brags is always a spotted person and is usually
; oided by society as much as possible.
Next we have idle talkers. Some peoole
can talk constantly and when their entire
speeches are boiled down they have merely
uttered words, seemingly just for the sport of
exercising their tounges and never depending
en their brain to furnish anv worth while
The most common of the three menaces i.s
perhaps the chronic knocker. Business con
ditions of recent years have done much to de
velop some experts along thi.s line. A man that
netei sees any good m anything can not ever
expect anjone to see any good in him, and
usually there isn't much.
If all three of the different kind of folks
were put in a bag and shaken up, we don't know
which would come out first, but our idea is that
the knocker and bragger would fight for first
