Banker Heard At
Annual Event Of
The "three pillars" of Haywood
county economy, tourists, agricul
ture and industry, always feel the
effects of conditions in many dis
tant places. Edward A. Wayne, vice
president of the Federal Reserve
bank of Richmond told some 400
persons at the annual Chamber of
Commerce banquet here Friday
This, he declared, points to a
continuing need for research, adap
ting what the section offers to the
ever-changing desires of the pub
lic, in which "there is a job for
all of us . . . working together on
a community level."
The highlight speaker used as
the theme for his talk, speaking as
a banker, "my problems arc your
headaches". Speaking with fre
quent use of humorous and pointed
anecdotes, he brought out in his
opening remarks that the main
causes of trouble in Europe steins
from disunity and the artificial
barriers between the small states
which form the continent. We must
always be alert to avoid this in the
United States, he said.
Turning to the sources of econ
omic support in Haywood county,
he illustrated how visitors a term
he called more descriptive than
"tourists" know of the attractions
of this section, since thousands
come each year. "But what is the
reason other millions don't come?"
he asked. Mr. Wayne said he didn't
know the answer, but it should be
the job of civic leaders in this
area to find out, and recommended
the use of public opinion surveys.
He explained how business condi
tions in other sections affect this
H ade, and also, brought ouL vUu?,
point that services offered must
change to fit in with what people
like today not a generation ago.

economic problem number one, Mr.
Wayne continued. The future is
