can't can a can, can he?'"
We have heard that there has
been talk of taking our only pas
senger train off that runs from
Asheville to Murphy. The people at
Balsam are not in favor of this and
hope the Utility Board at Raleigh
will not recommend such a move.
Norman Christy, our postmaster,
thinks a large number of tourists
would use the train in the sum
mer time if the railroad would
make it possible for them to go
to Murphy and back the same day
and if the railroad would adver
tise the trip in the newspapers,
for Norman says the scenery
along the railroad is marvelous,
but only a few summer visitors
know anything about it. And it
would be a trip over the highest
standard gauge railroad east of
the Rockies, he said.
Early Sunday morning, I drove
to Asheville. Two boys, Merlin
Dixon and Dick Pumphrey, who
had been visiting at the Erickson's
cabin thumbed a ride. They were
on their way back to Daytona
Beach. Dick had never seen a
mountain before and Merlin only
once before. The hovs eninveH

climbed Wessner Bald while here.
About ten days ago, I drove
through the Royal Gorge of the
Blue Ridge and through the Swan
nanoa Gap with Mrs. Mable But
ler, She told me that she and her
family rode on the first train that
came over the railroad from Salis
bury to the Gap.
