Rules for Waitress and Child Poems
Among Books Sent for Soldiers to Read
WASHINGTON. Soldiers and
sailors who patronize the library
at Service Men's Club, No. 1, are
willing to admit that the person
who donated the latest box of books
had ii wide range of interests.
The first volume they pulled out
of the box was "The Campfire
Girls Go Motoring." This was fol
"Baldness, Its Cause, Its Treat
ment and Its Prevention."
"Up to Date Waitress of 1922."
"Rhymes for Kindly Children."
And these in German: "A Lace
Dictionary With Patterns", "A
Guide to Vienna", "A Catalogue of
the Munich Art Gallery", "A Lex
icon of German Quotations", and
"The Pilgrim's Progress to Culture."

Killed In Fall
SYLVA Special to Mountaineer
Plunging head foremost from a
second story window to the paved
street below her East Main-Street
apartment, Mrs. Doug Stevens, well
known resident of Sylva, fell to
her death last Thursday night at
about 10:30 o'clock.
Fatally injured by the fall, she
died two hours later, without re
gaining consciousness at the C. J.
Harris Community hospital.
The Stevens home being in the
down-town section, night police
men Don Davis and Jesse Sullins
reached the spot immediately after
the fatal plunge, rushing her in
the police car to the hospital.
Neither Mr. Stevens nor Miss
Juanita Long, Mrs. Stevens' daugh
ter by former marriage, were at
home at the time, the husband, em
ployee of Mead Company, being on
night duty at the plant.
Police officers, who surveyed the
scene of the tragedy, thought it
probable that Mrs. Stevens, who
had been in ill health for some
months, probably went to the win
dow, at the sound of passing army
vehicles, which attracted consider
able attention along the street;
that, seized with sudden faintness,
she toppled over the window ledge
which is unusually low.
The funeral was held last Sun
day morning at Stevens cemetery,
15 miles from Sylva. Husband and
daughter are the only survivors.

"Since the newspaper profession
is more intimately and directly

oorhaps any one privately owned
institution, the publishers, acting
through their press associations,
four years ago set aside one week
during the year in which they

chairman of the National News

"It is hoped that through this
year's observance the newspapers
may not only bring about a better
understanding of the free press as
a right of the people, but may also
intensify appreciation of all our

Letters To The
LIKED SI'KCIAI. KDITIOS
Editor The Mountaineer:
Some weeks ago a cousin of mine
sent me a copy of your Special Edi
tion in which you paid tribute to
the boys in service from Haywood
county. 1 have read it with a groat
deal of pleasure and have looked
at the pictures of those tine moun
tain boys and am proud of them
and wish to congratulate you for
getting out such a splendid paper.
1 doubt if then' is another coun
ty in tin' state or any of the other
states in our great Nation that
has a better record than Haywood.
1 do not know, personally, any of
I he boy,s whose pictures are shown
in your paper, as 1 have been away
from the Old North State forty
years, but they are a tine looking
bunch of fellows and art' Tar Heels
I read the New Orleans, Dallas,
Houston and Beaumont papers and
they all have nothing but praise
for the boys in service, but The
Mountaineer is the first paper I
have seen to put fifty-six pages of
praise in one issue. I know every
man, woman, boy and girl in Hay
wood and surrounding counties are
proud of The Mountaineer and the
wonderful tribute paid to those
noble boys in service.
This Special Edition will be filed
away by Mothers, Fathers, Sisters
ami Brothers and will be read
after Victory is won, the war is
over and the lights have gone on
all uve r the world. Yes, it will be
read by those brave boys after
they have come home, put away
their guns and uniforms and have
taken up the task of making the
nomel and a better place in which
to live and where we can worship
and praise our Great, Good and
Gracious God who gave us the
Mountaineer, again I say hearty
congratulations to you.

ing from Mediterranean base.
The mother, Mrs. Fay Varner,
received from the adjutant general
a telegram September 1 that her
son was unaccounted for since Au
gust 21, following flight into action
as tail gunner on a U. S. flying
fortress. Of course, there is al
ways the possibility that the ser
vice members reported missing
may later prove merely to have
been separated from their units,
and many have been the expres
sions of such hope.
