THE SCENIC HIGHWAY.
The iiut encouraging news fur this sec
tion of the stat'- since the announcement was
made in the spring of '.)2S that the Great
.'Moky Mountains National I 'ark was assured,
was' the di-e isbui on Monday morning by Secre--tary
HarmM L. Ickes that the Scenic Parkway
would foilowtlje n ute as proposed by the state
highway commission, which will follow. the toj

Almost two month- ago' some three hun
dred Tar Heels, fifty from Haywood, went I o
Washington to attend the public' hearing before
Mr. Ickes. Tennessee had 7o present. ': This one
point was not the determining factor, but of
course it had weight that nothing else could have
given. From that one instance alone we should
be MORE convinced that it pays' to work to
gether for anything that is: worthwhile.
The Parkway will represent an expenditure
of .?16,060,000, and the part from Blowing Rock
to Soco Gap will cost the most, so the amount
spent right here within sight of us will amount
to a staggering sum.
TAKE OFFICE IN JANUARY
The Congress elected this week will tak.3
office in January with only two months inter
vening between election and succession to of
fice, This come about as a result of the Norris
amendment to Jhe constitution, eliminating the
"lame duck session" which used to begin in
-March, following an election. Under the old
system the Congress elected last week would
not convene until December, 1935.
Naturally, such a delay in taking office
was net necessary in this modern era of trans
portation ar:;l transmission c;f intelligence.
However, it may be discovered, later oh, that
two months is not quite long enough to wait
after an election and that changes in govern
mental policy come too rapidly. Newly elected
Congressmen . have: a lot to learn before assunir
ir.g office to dire r . the affairs of this, republic
and vote upon the nuny important matters that '
come before them. .. ,
CLUB REARS SEVEN ORPHANS
In the Rotarian magazine we recently read
about the adoption of seven orphans by the
Lynchburg, Va., club some sevent .n. years ago
and the r emarkable success of ..the project in
humanity a: a cost of around S40,000.'
We feel sure that other service clubs have
records of similar cases, where unselfish busi
ness, men, brought face to face with human
need, have responded nobly. The Lynchburg
example, however, is inspiring because it was a
concerted effort over a period of years, outlast
ing the first enthusiasm, that comes to many of
us when we undertake something unselfish. It
succeeds in giving the seven boys and girls a
successful preparation for living and a start
in life itself that promises much.
The idea comes to mind that there are op
portunities for business men here to do some
thing alone the same line. In Haywood County
there are worthy children whose lives will be
handicapped by lack of education unless some
unselfish agency extends aid. There are children
in our midst who will suffer the pangs of hun
ger and shiver from the cold blasts of winter
unless help is forthcoming from without the
family circle. i
THE FARMER-BUSINESS MEN'S MEETING
WAS A SUCCESS
The meeting of farmers and business men
last Friday night at which time a general dis
cussion was made of the new program that is
being launched in this area was a success in
every sense of the word.
The two outstanding features of the meet
ing were, as we see it, encouragement to the
people of the county, and second, it gave a bet
ter understanding between the two groups.
And where there is understanding and
encouragement there is much that will be ac
complished. Ever so often we have said that
the future holds in store for Haywood County
great things, and that this county is right on
the threshold of a bigger day. Our statements
were certainly backed up by the speakers last
There were so many good statements made
that could be expounded upon that we are wait
ing until later and will use them separately.

TEACHERS SHOULD WARN PUPILS
School teachers of Haywood County should
not hesitate to take a few minutes out of their
work every week to discuss with their pupils
the dangers of the highway, with modern auto
mobiles whizzing by and children being acci
dentally killed at the rate of eighty a week.
Not only should this slaughter have the at
tention of .-chool teachers but other organiza
tions in Haywood should help in the fight

AM. AP.Ol-T SLEEP
A ieriiian inve-t igaior, Wiiiteistein, wri'
ing about .sleeping and divnming, comes .for! h
with the information that depth of sleep is as
important as length, -and says that some people
get more rest. 'from a six hour deep sleep than
others get mil ..of ten hours shallower sleep.
So far, so good, but the investigator goes
on. lie says that under the spur of necessity
the hours of sleep can be shortened without
harm and that the man who knows he can sleep
'.only four hours is more refreshed at the end of
that period than if he thinks he can sleep eight
hours and is awakened at the end of the fourth.
Sleepers, he says, are of two classes : even
ing sleepers who drop into oblivion soon after
their heads hit the pillow and only recover con
sciousness toward morning and morning sleep
ers, who find it hard to sleep early in the even
ing but drop off soundly toward dawn. If the
sleeping period is to be shortened the evening
sleeper should chop it off in the morning and
the morning sleeper should stay up later.
Now, we have chronicled what the investi
gator says he discovered but it is useless be
cause every reader of The Mountaineer has his
or her own idea about sleep and knows the answers.'
THE OCEAN OF TRUTH
The great English scientist, Isaac Newton,
was in some ways, a modest man. Notwith
standing his great discoveries and theories, he
realized that he had only scratched the surface
of investigation. He said:
"I do not know what I may appear to the
world; but to myself I seem to have been only
like a boy, playing on the seashore, and divert
ing myself in now and then finding a smoother
pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst
the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered
There is no excuse for any one thinking
that all of truth has been found. Keep your
mind open for the reception of new facts, al
ways recognize the possibility of present con
ce.pt io'ns being in error. The man or woman who
closes his or her mind to new truths will at the
end of life die ignorant that's how fast the
world is moving.
HAVE WE TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT?
Now that the election is over and the offi
cials named for the ensuing term it might not
be amiss to direct attention to 'the cost of our
system of government.
According to recent census figures the tax
payers of the United States support 3,062 coun
ty governments, 16,659 city governments, 128,
'548 school districts and 19,769 township orga
nizatins. The question before the citizens of
this country is whether there are too many or
ganizations for modern needs.
We have no objection to any of these arms
of government if the taxpayers are willing to
pay for them. However, the average citizen of
this republic pays $71.09 each year to support
them, when many of them could be eliminated
without crippling government in the least.
Good comrades are a pair of shoes and friend- -
ly all the day:
With faithfulness they do their part to ease
life s ruffed way;
Yet though they bravely shield the one
confidence they share,
We learn the trails men travel from
of boots they wear.

The "S. 0. S." Behind The Lines
Phjsicians and nurses form the front line forces in
the endless battle against sickness, but behind the lines
there is another essential unit, fighting just as hard and
conscientiously as those at the front.
Comprising this unit are the ethical pharmacists,
the 'Service Supply" corps, on whom doctors and nurses
must rely for ammunition in the sjiape of medicines and
Alexander's is justly proud of their reputation for
dependability and speed in supplying this demand.
