WASHING CAR WETS DYNAMITE
CHARGE CAVE LIFE
Mrs. Lawrence Genaro, wealthy
Dallas widow, probably owes her life
to her neatness. Returning home
from a trip, .she found her automobile
had become dusty from standing on
the driveway at the side of her home.
She ordered a servant to wash the
automobile without moving it. It
later was discovered that the washing
had dampened a dynamite stick at
tached to the engine by unknown per
son and prevented it from exploding
when the motor was ignited.

To Co-operate With
The salespeople of the Waynesville
stores can co-operate with o.her cit
izens and the Governor's Hospitality
committee of Haywood county in sev
One of the first, sometimes the only
personal contact a tourist makes in a
city, is with the salespeople. It is
fortunate for Waynesville that people
employed in the stores are above the
average in intelligence and ability.
This makes the carrying out of such
a program as has been outlined by
the Governor's Hospitality committej
a much simpler t:;sk.
The store employes by a thorough
study of the points of interest of
North Carolina,, can make the strang
er within our gates feel more wel
come and at the same time give valu
able information as to where to go
and what to do during their stay in
North Carolina Strangers are al
ways delighted when someone shows
an interest in their visit and if the
sales personnel has a complete knowl
edge of our city and surroundings
there is every reason to believe that
the visitor will appreciate this added
Employes of retail stores should
investigate the sports activities of
area and so be able to recommend
where to go for good fishing, hunting,
horseback riding, golf, or other sports.
The salesperson should be sufficiently
informed to give directions and infor
mation about places of interest within
and without the city. He or she
should know the location and time of
meeting of civic and social clubs open
to strangers the .hiking club, the
luncheon clubs Such contacts with
groups or similar interests will al
ways breed a friendly spirit.
If each merchant would consider
himself a committee of one to carry
on some sort of intensive training for
the instructing of his employes, upon
the subjects mentioned above the
atmosphere of a friendly resort com
munity would be enhanced.

Dangerous Practice, Says Eakin
Visitors In Park Will Not He Al

Considerable publicity has been
given to the bears in the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park within the
past few weeks. In view of the fact
that both the press and the public
are apparently unaware of a National
Park Service regulation which makes
it unlawful to feed bears, much of
ths publicity has been an undesirable
influence, J. R. Eakin, superintend
ent, pointed out recently. ,
"Over a long period it has been
proved that the feeding of bears by
mankind tends to be detrimental to
both parties. It makes of the ever
hungry bear a dangerous beggar nat
ural caution has been overpowered by
the case with which food is gotten
from tourists; and the tourist in oblig
ing this animal is running a foolish
risk of serious injury. In time a
begging bear becomes overly-insist
ent, and the danger to mankind con
sequeniiy Decomes greater, f ood is
the bear's chief concern, and as long
as the animal is tempted by the smell
or sight of food there is no telling
what may happen.
"With the protection given all wild
life in the Great Smoky Mountains
National Park, practically 11 species
have increased in number. Within
this sanctuary the black bear now has
no natural enemies, and it is t3 be
expected that population of these
animals will increase to such an ex
tent that the hiker will have a good
chance of seeing animals in their na
tive home. Where mankind's food is
not to be expected, the bear is a wild
animal which will remain wild in
other words an animal which will not
molest the hiker or the tourist.
"The authorities of the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park pos
itively will not lower the prestige of
this marvelous wilderness area by
being plagued by a number of dan
gerous, overstuffed 'tourist bears,'
consequently all visitors are urged to
assist us in keeping our bears wild.
This can be done by never feeding
the animals, by reDoitine all such
violations to our rangers, and by de
positing all remains of lunches in
containers which are provided for that
The bear problem in some of the
western national parks where tour
ists have been feeding bears for years,
has become a very serious matter.
Dozens of bear bites or scratches
have been reported each month and
conditions became so bad it was noc
essary to break up the practice of
feeding bears even if this required
making arrests and assessing fines.
"When a bear becomes too insist
ent for food he is either trapped and
removed to some remote section of the
park, or destroyed. In the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park
'tourist bears' must be destroyed as
there are no parts of the park that
are not used by the park Visitors."
