Chamber Of Commerce Head
Says Prospects For Coming
''c .son Most Propitious
In his splendid talk on Tuesday eve
ning I'resident Charles E. Ray, of .the
Waynesviiie Chamber of Commerce,
presented in a detailed but consice
form, the projects that will go for
ward during: the coming year under
the Work of the organization. In
his openine remarks" . he voiced
his : gratification, . over : the, re
soonse from every contact in
getting his plan? formulated and
that the presence of so many repre
sentaive citipens of the town at the
banquet, be felt, gave promise of the
accomDhshments of the coming year
In stating that the prospects for
the coming season were the most pro
pitious in years he based his claim
on the following reasons: First, the
profitable winter season in Florida
which from Past experience i. indica
tive of one for this section. The pub
licity kiven through countless medi
urns of the Great Smoky Mountains
National Park and the Parkway will
bring thousands of tourists this way.
The general improvement in business
will encourage people to travel more.
With -the greater opportunities also
come greater responsibilities, Presi
dent Ray ppir.ted out, , The town of
Waynesviiie must prepare in a more
thorough manner for the expected
season. Among improvements urged
were the following: A beautification
program, with not only a vision of
what may be done in the immediate
present but a vision of what may be
worked out with an idea of perma
nency and growth, not only" for the
town but the surrounding country.

Breese Urges The
Of Highway 284
Would Make A Direct Route For
Southern Visitors To Get To
Park, Says Brevard Man
People of Section Ready And
Anxious To Push Further
Dexelopment of Area
William E. Breese, former state
senator from this district, urged that
the citizens of Haywood county do all
in their power to push the completion
of highway No., 284. in his address at
the Chamber of Commerce banquet
here Tuesday night.
Mr. Breese went into detail in de
scribing the1 scenic attractions of No.
284, all the way from South Carolina
to this city. "The road when com
pleted," he said "would offer a direct

"I believe that we have a 'people
nving here with the ability, i. e en
ergy, and the will', to develop the
material, natural, and God-given pnsr
sibilities of this .section to our ad
vantage and our profit," said Fred
Weede, manager of the A; .'hev ilk?
Chamber of Commerce at the annual
banquet here last Tuesday night it
the Waynesviiie organization. ..
.: Mr. Weede's topic was potentiali
ties, and he di.scussed agriculture,
stockraising, the TVA, tourists, ihe
eat Smoky Mountains National
Park, and the workings of the Cham
bers of Commerce in Western North
, "The process of developing this
section began long ago. The pioneers
had faith. They had spirit, and the
will to do. We of the present gener
ation are heirs of their endeavor,
and I trust are heirs of their spirit
as well" '
The speaker then spoke highly of
the work being done in the section
along agricultural lines, and brought
out the fact that "we should entour
age more stockraising."
"Our industrial potentialities of
fers a rather enigmatic problem.
Western North Carolina constitutes
fourteen per cent of the Tennessee
Valley Authority area. Our future
is not wholly divorced from the fu
ture of this vast enterprise, but what
the TVA future is, nobody knows."
"One thought is that we shall see
developed in this area the farm-
factory combination. A number ofi
relatively small industries scattered
in a number of smaller towns, with'
