peopl- wh' have labored all the years the hooe
of recreation and travel and amusement in their
fieelining years. Of course, there are many pro-;
and emis to a big question like this. We have
so far read many more pros, than, cons. '..'The
first reaction to such a proposition is that it
would not be practicable good in theory, fine
to think about but not workable. If the bill
comes up for debate in Congress, it will be one
of the 'most interesting discussions in many
years, interesting not only to those debating
but more interesting to the people back home.
We are fearful that a plan that sounds so good
and appeals so strongly to the great masses
will be found Utopian or fanciful and abandoned.
If it can be shown that it is at all feasible, all
the weight possible should be brought on Con
gress to at least give it a trial. It seems to. us
no more experimental than some things that
are now going on. Instead of spending billions
to put young men in CCC camps, why not let
those boys have the jobs the older people now
have and let the older ones be kept up by the
government? Instead of destroying needed
commodities coffee, corn, wheat, hogs, cattle,
cotton let the government buy the surplus and
give it to those not able to Work the feeble
minded, the blind, crippled, diseased. Such a
plan would reduce the number of insane, would
abolish county hemes, and could increase the
number of real homes, where children could
have home training and home life, thus making
lighter the burdens of the orphanages. So much
is being said and so much more can be said that
if the plan is impossible, that fact should be
made known in very plain language so that
false hopes may not bo aroused in our people.
If such a plan is possible, then let's adopt it

HELP FIGHT TUBERCULOSIS.
The sale of Christmas seals, sponsored
every year by the National Tuberculosis Asso
ciation, is now going on in Haywood County and
should meet with hearty response here.
More than 650,000 American citizens are
said to. suffer from tuberculosis at an econonvc
cost of around $350,0uO,O0o a year, and despite
the progress being made in control work the
disease still kills more people in the prime of
life than any other malady.
Early diagnosis is vitally important for the
recovery of individuals and extensive eduta,
tional programs along this line are being car
ried out. When the disease is diagnosed within
six months of the first symptom the chance of
revovery is much higher than when treatment
is delayed and the cost of the patient's care con
Once every year, at tne Christmas season,
the people of almost every community in this
country have an opportunity to help tight the
scourge that afflicts so many persons. It is the
privilege of every reader to participate in this
great battle by buying Christmas seals Cr
Health Bonds which will aid the national and
local associations to carry on the campaign
necessary to win the victory that is desired.

GOVERNMENT WILL FORECLOSE
Announcement that the government will
foreclose on property under mortgage to the
Home Owners' Loan Corporaiton unless interest
due is paid, made by John II- Fahey, chairman
of the corporation, gives notice to all those who
have been under the impression that undue len
iency may be expected.
The government, in making vast sums
available to citizens as emergency relief meas
ures, had no intention, so far as we know, of
giving away money, but only sought to relieve
distressed debtors who otherwise might have
lost their property. For those succored to try
to take advantage of the government would be
poor gratitude and if there are such in the coun
try then the sooner the government Cracks
down the better.
