This Edition Dedicated to Those
Who Have Paid Supreme Price
This edition of The Mountaineer is dedicated to
the 13 men from Haywood County who have given the
supreme sacrifice in this war; and also those who face
death as they fight to free the world from the beasts
of the Axis powers.
We have set aside page nine of this edition as
further tribute to those 13 men. Our prayers are, and
we trust also yours, that as the weeks and months
pass until Victory, that the list will not increase.
We suggest that you now turn to the front page
of the second section and read it before reading the
rest of the 56 pages in this edition.

tourist and agricultural life of the
More than 5,000 copies of thia

Tribute To Haywood
Men And Women Now
Serving Their Country
This edition of The Mountaineer is being published as
a tribute to the sons and daughters of Haywood who have
answered their country's call and gone to war.
These 2.500 men and women have heroically answered
the call, and have pledged themselves to protect our homes
and freedom from enemies who have sworn they will destroy
both. We owe these gallant men and women a heart full
In preparing this edition, the editorial staff stayed clear
of long drawn out articles. In fact, most of the articles in
(his edition are not over two paragraphs long. We have
tried to give a brief sketch of hundreds and hundreds of
Haywood men and women now in service. Hundreds of
pictures have been used, and every precaution has been
taken to make the accounts accurate.
This edition will be read by more people than any news
paper ever published in Haywood County.
And as we roll down the curtain on this edition, we
pay homage and tribute to you men and women in service
I- today, and in the past.
May you soon come marching victoriously home!
