W. G. Hyers served H.tywood as
clerk of superior court for many
years, and during that lime listened
to many a speech, some good, oth
ers Icrrihlc. Some were loo long,
others should have never been
started. He learned that brevity,
and to the point proved profitable.
Last Thursday while attending
the Stale Democrat ic Convention
m Kaleinli. he put into practice
what he had learned in his years
of observation and practice.
It all started when the platform
committee, of which Mr. livers is
a member, read its report. After
the platform was read. Rivers .John

said he wanted a platlonn bis

and said, "I think they're right
purty words." And then made a
motion that the plank be approved
He won, and so the convention
adopted a plank reading: "'Wise
state policy calls for their i natural
resources: protection against selfish
spoliation and for their construc

nomic, recreation, and aesthetic
of the people."
Johnson, however, had the last
say-so in reading the platform to
the convention, he skipped "aes

Needed For Park,
Says M. Redden
Monroe Redden, candidate for
the Democratic nomination for
Congress from the twelfth congres
sional district, urges North Caro
lina and Tennessee to move hand
in hand in the development of
the Great Smoky Mountains Na
"In my opinion, The Great
Smoky Mountains National park is
the most valuable national attrac
tion in Western North Carolina.
More publicity on a national scale
is given to Western North Caro
lina by reason of this park than
any other attraction we possess.
"It is up to the people to exploit
the possibilities of this treasured
possession. It fits into the life of
this section. We have long been
a tourist center of wide attraction.
Our mountains are famous for their
scenic beatuy. The time has come
when we should now not two
years from now call together our
congressional leadership of North
Carolina and Tennessee in order
that a program of progress and
development of this park may be
"There is no reason why North
Carolina and Tennessee should not
move hand in hand in urging the
development of this park. The peo
ple of both states have a common
interest in its development.
"I believe this generation is en
titled to enjoy the beauties and
advantage of this park in substan
tial completion. There is no reason
why its development should be
postponed for the pleasure of other
generations. While America moves
forward industrially, agriculturally,
and on all other economic fronts,
we should not lag behind in this
section because nf our failure to
take advantage of our present op
portunities. "The completion of this park
will mean that millions of dollars
and millions of people will pour
into our section annually that oth
erwise would go elsewhere. I sug
gest that we join in a united front
and demand action now."
