After being introduced by Don
Elias, president of the AsheviUe
Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Drury
replied to Governor Broughton's
statement that more road were
needed into the Park, by adding:
I appreciate the open mindedness
of your progressive governor. As
far as I am concerned, the Park
ervice will approach the subject
of road building with an open
Director Drury pointed out that
the defense program came first,
but went on to say that projects
were being "worked up and put
on t,he shelf until the defense work
was over, and then these projects
would become a reality and men
now absorbed in defense would be
given jobs. Road building will be
an important item at such a time,
The defense work has slowed
us down, but in one way that is
good, because sometimes we spend
money top rapidly."
Mr. Drury said it was wonder
ful to meet with such groups and
learn of the trends of thought,
and to get local slants on such
The park director was emphat
in his remarks that "some sec
tions of the Park should not be
penetrated by roads. We should
maintain some wilderness areas, to
which man may retreat, and where
wildlife may find refuge."
"I have come to think of the
reat Smoky Mountains National
Park in that class of truly great
things in America. I have made
several trips into the park, yet this
the first from this side, and on
one of those trips, I was with the
late Arno B. Cramerer, who for 7
years served as director of the
Park Service. It was with him
that I stood on top of Mt. LeConte
and looked for miles at the color
ful trees in their fall colorings.
inee that time, I always felt very
much at home in the Park area."
The Park official was highly
complimentary of the barbecue,
which was- served, stating; "I have
never tasted such delicious barbe
cue, even in sunny Califoria."
