A traffic count taken at one of the
.iv entrances to the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park in. .June
resulted in account of 14,145 auto
mobiles and 40.769 people. Con
servatively estimating that 20 per
cent additional peoplp came into the
park by the rive other entrances, a
travel figure for the entire park
of 4!922 for the month is arrived at.
While this figure is surprising, it is
believed to be only a fraction of the
travel that may be expected when
the park is developed.
Automobiles from 40 states, the
li-trict of Columbia, and one for
eign country, Mexico, were counted.
Twenty-three per cent of visitors
were from states other than North
Carolina and Tennessee.

WILLIAM SLOAN WILL
Dr William Sloan arrived Satur
day from Peoria, Illinois, where he
spent the past year as an interne
at - St Francis HosDitaf. He seit
vesterday for a few' davs; visit to
friends 'in Savannah. Georgia -and
upon his return will, he assorted
with his uncles, Dr. Sam and Thomas
Stringfield in the practice of medi
cine. Dr. Sloan received his M. D.
degree at V'anderbilt University last
Friday the l.'ith, as a had luck day,
is one f the oldest of all beliefs re
oanling bad. luck, and ranks along
.w:th the. one that it a... garment is
stasc I on Fridav and not ifinished the
same dav, that the person v.-jll nevei
live 'to. w ear it out. The. general be
lief, among those taking such ideas
to heart, is that 'Friday is naturally
a hard-luck day, to say nothing of
adding .- it, 13.
To others t.he: number 13 seem.'i to
be the luckiest of all numbers. Some
interesting - facts that have been given
about "old number 13" were recently
recorded in a national public'ition.
As for the men Victor Hugo and
some other notables had such antin-
athy to 13 that they refused to si
down at table where there were that
many present. A French cabinet offi
cer, when entertaining Andrew V.
.Mellon, discovered with alarm that
j.3 were present and hastily summon
ed his wife to sit in at the stag affair,
Piime de Rivera was said to have
been doomed by 13. His name was
composed of 13 Tetters, and he set-'but
to save the reign of AJfonso the 13th
on the 13th of September. He ap
pointed 13 ministers and died under
a combination i 13 accidents, in
Paris no houses bear the number 13.
In that city there are people known
as "fourteeners" who are paid for
making 14 at a table in an emergency.
The British have omitted the hoodoo
number for the auto tags. The Ital
ians ban it in lotteries and the new
Turkish republic has dropped i, from
the vocabulary. Even the abougines
of Mexico and Central America abhor
the number. The ancient Hindus;, too,
dislike it. -'
In our own country , many 41"
