Dr. E. W. Gudger was the speaker
at the Rotary Crab last Friday, and
he pointed out'sf.mne of the needs of
the community, that to local citizens
might appear to be small, yet to the
visitor loomed out as eyesores in the
community. "But nevertheless, the
town shows every sign of progress.
It is indeed encouraging," he said.
His suggestions were constructive
all the way through, and he urged
that immediate -attention be given
the seemingly "minor matters." Re
moval of: sidewalk sigtns, especially
"in from of the service stations was
one of his suggestions. Repairing of
"broken sidewalks, being another. I
Dr. Gudger was imphatic in urging' i
that the towns of Hazehvond and 1
Waynesville get together and build :
the sewer line to Pigefn river, past '
Lake Junaluska, "He intimated that
the . non-sunnprt of town officials on :
the part of the citizens had been cause
of much delay. !

eighty-nine and eighty, respectively.
Neither of them are feeble in fiict--

waiKing stick. ,
And as one of their children ex
pressed it: "Dad and mother are al
ways anxious for The Mountaineer
to come to them, and it is sure a
welcome visitor. Dad reads it with
out glasses, but mother has to use
glasses to read."
.Mrs. Trantham is a native of thi.s
county, while Mr. Trantham was
born in Buncombe county, coming here
immediately after the War Between
Mr. Trantham was bottr. at Fair
view on March 10, 1H4C. He lived
there until February 28, 1S".2 when
he enlisted in the Confederate Army
in the War Between the States. He
remained in the army for the duration
of the war. j
After the war, Mr. Trantham came-!

been spent inn this matter, and olli

is available that will be ideal for the

I he huildimr. w hile built for the

serving as a convention hall, also
ideal for Mower shows, quilt shows

The building will not have seats
