Election At Clyde
Will Lack Usual
All indications are that tne com
ing election in Clyde will lack the
usual hard campaigning that has
been a feature of the elections there
for the past number of years. Dr. D.
I. L. Smathers, who for the past eighv
years has served as mayor of that
town, told this paper last week that
he was no longer a candidate for the

At present there is not a policeman
in the town of Clyde, smd because, of
that reason the campaign is. not ex
pected to get as "warm" as previous
elections, because the police was usu
ally the main issue of the elections.
Dr. Smathers stated that he ex

mediate steps towards naming a. po

the Hazelwood board of aldermen had

DIRECTOR AND W1FK HF.RK
Mr. and Mrs. Marshall M. Harthol

the Yale Glee Club, which gave a
concert in A sheville Monday night,
spent Sunday night in Waynesville
on , route to Ashoville, While bore
they expressed themselves as .being
favorably impressed with this town.
They were at the H otel Le'Faine while
The Waynesville Chamber ' of Commerce is sponsor
ing a "Try At Home; First" campaign, which will be for
an indefinite period, and during Which time every effort
will be made to impress the buying public with the im
.portance of "trying at home first." ;
In beginning the campaign, the. board of directors
discussed the matter at length, and the fact was stressed
that it was not a point of selfishness in trying to keep the
business at home, but a matter of civic pride and good
business for the community. '
' A conservative estimate, based upon a close check-up
shows that between $15,000 and $20,000 each month goes
out of town for merchandise and sen-ices that were
available in Waynesville.
This staggering amount going away from the
community monthly, is cause for serious thought, one
director stated. "If this continues," he said, "within a
year almost a quarter of a million dollars will have been
sent to other communities which should have remained
in Waynesville. In the end our schools, churches and
everything in the town will have suffered."
Plans are underway to make a survey and check-up
on the different so urces through which money is spent
in other communities. Each individual is requested to
"Try At Home First" before spending money out of town, J
