DECEMBER IT. 1!MH An Efficient Commissioner We knew the day that liuvenv.r Cherry named I) Reeves Noland ;is H:hvav Cnm missiur.er t I" the 10th district that a v ise ckoiee had been made. We wet e aware ! the fact that Mr. Noland knew the !:; ri.1 compi isiim 14 counties from one end to tp.e other. We knew too that he u .'.s a .r;fu.i man. having had a lot of expertCiVt. :: h:: ness. fiiiininL; and engineer:!',-:- Mr. Noland had hardly taken the oath "t office before he began a comprehens;ve study of the road needs of the 14 cmin.'ies ami held lone conferences with the engineers of the district. Following that. Mr. , land vis.'ed each county, talked to school ir.en. and busi ness leaders, and saw first hand th" most urgent needs for ceUini: people o! the d'N'"! ict out of the mud. The results of this energetic ; : :a:n .. Mr.'ifloland and his associates in the engineer ing deportment, resulted in Charles Ross, for mer chairman of the highway e miri'ssii o. to make this special report to irrr elecft Scott recently: "The school h;is ro;v;s in the 10th district are in the best condition of any district in the state. All the i ; use. I by school buses have cither been covered with crushed stone and gravel, or the con tract let for work to be underwa" by Jjruarv first. Thosa in charge of the work (Mr No land) put their efforts in ce'tinr' the peop'e out of the raud first, instead of build::;, fewe: miles of black top or hih cost roads." Mr. Ross made a personal s;.i vcv .if the road system of the state in order to yjve Mr. Scott first-hand information as to 'he exist ing situation. We have no idea what historian mi cht write about Governor Cherry's administra tion in the years to come, but we know that the people of the 10th district will a aw re member his administration as the era ' ' .1 n he appointed an efficient Hn-hwa" Cormr.is sioner that tt us out of the mud. ' Let us repeat attain that Governor Cherrv made a wise choice in naming Mr. N'o'and as highway commissioner. The entire tate. and more particularly this area, have' boon :erv edand served well by his hard work and careful planning. There remain- a lot of needed work to be done, and this new-paper feels that Governor-elect Scott could do no better than retain' Mr. Noland on the high way' commission under his. administration which begins January 6th. A Community Sing For several years prior to the war, this community enjoyed every Christmas season, what was known as a "community sing". Several hundred citizens met at a theatre or church, and there for an hour, wtould en joy the fellowship of singing the famous Christmas carols. The event was not commercialized in any way everything was free, and all services were donated to the cause of getting together and singing. Many a person have remarked time and time again that this one event did more to instill the Christmas spirit in them than anything else. So far we have not heard of any program like'this being planned for this holiday sea si m. Porhaps we are all too busv to take time off and participate in such an event then per ha:; - we had rather listen to Christmas music evr the air. and from our several church t! o than to hear ourselves sing. i'hi.- is not a rebuke for not having the " c .!-1 unity sing" this year. We merely call n vour attention, and with the few side 1 envrks that it was once an enjoyable occa :i hue. Maybe we have outgrown such public programs. Anyway, it does bring back tonil memories of yesteryear, and such cheer ful memories seem to come to the surface more readily during the Christmas season. No doubt that is why we remembered the community sings that took place years ago. They'll Do Ic Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo We give vou (aud you can keep her-) DJM8A 6LJ.W, QJEEN CF THE GIFT SHOf? WHO CASE FULLY REMOVES THE PfflCE MARK FROM ytXJR MOST EXPENSIVE PRESENTS Lending A Helping Hand Already many clubs. Sunday School classes, . ations. and individuals, are making !;.! for spreading Christmas cheer by send :v. out baskets sometime next week. We know of no better way of portraying the true spirit of Christmas than remembcr i:ur those not as fortunate as some others. It is always blessed to give, and to see the hap piness one can create by giving to those who d'-MTve a helping hand. M,.ny times in the past, there have been dtsei'vim; families that received several bas sets, while others were overlooked. This is i; aallv the result of not checking against a general list of worthy cases. This is much easier said than done, but it appears that every organization as well as individuals should make it a point to check .ri'h the Welfare Department to get full de tails before making final plans for taking ou baskets.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By LAWRENCE GOULD Consulting Psychologist from her completely. Again, most men get their moral principles and standards from their mothers, so that if a mother either tells her son that his wife "is not worthy of him," or has brought him up to feel his sexual desires are shame ful, his love for his wife will make him feel so guilty, he may turn against her. It If-tonfidenc an aid to success? Absww: Not when it rests on a tendency to overestimate your achievements, reports George S. Klein,. psychologist mt the Hen Binger Clinic. Some hundreds of aviation cadets were called on to estimate how well they had done in 1 series of tests, and results, showed that those who rated themselves too highly were more apt to be "washed out" In training thin ven the ones who were "too modekt." True self-confidence lets 'you' admit your 'failures -without panic, while the more you doubt - yooxselt, the igjer "front" you ' tea Xeel t&at you have to put up. Can a mother's disapproval . wreck her son's marries? Answer: Nothing does so more effectually. For the love that al most any man gives his wife is in some sense "transferred" to her from his mother, and when she refuses to let him go, it's a tare man who is able to detach himself Will psychology improve your golf game? Answer: Not all by itself, I am afraid, and I am speaking from painful experience. Like most forms of sport, golf requires four - things: know-how, muscular co ordination, practice, and control of your emotions, and it's only with the last of. these that psy chology can help you. But most of the bad shots a "fairly good player makes are due to emotional disturbance above all, "anxiety." You're roost likely to "took Hp" at the time when you are under pres sure, and the less prone you are 1 to neurotic tensions, the teas often you will do so.

A no! her Law Enforcement Office Gets Radio We were interested to note that Jackson County has placed an order for a radio for the sheriff's department, to tie in with the state patrol radio svstem. Three towns of Haywood police together with the sheriffs ' ffi'e. and highway patrol have enjoyed the practical uses of the radio system for some time. With a radio set-up in Jacks.on County, and one in Buncombe, Haywood will be in a po sition to more rigidly enforce the law as far as apprehending criminals trying to escape :,; concerned. Only several days ago a Waynesville police man watched two suspicious men, and sud denly thev ran to their car and fled in iVi. direction of Canton. ,The policeman got their license number, and before the ear had t'onA ; very far the Canton police had full informa-l tion over the radio and were on the watch In due course, the car showed up, and the men surrendered, and were lodged in jail. We are happy Jackson County is joininr? the ranks of providing this latest law en forcement aid for their sheriff's department.

Views o' Editors flll RCHILLS FEARS Win'ton Churchill tells the House of Commons, "We should en deavor to reach a settlement with Russia before they have the atomic bomb as well as the Americans." VV'e all can appreciate the former Prime Minister's concern and bis recognition of the urgency of a settlement before the Soviet Union has atomic bombs ready for use. But have not the United States and British governments earnestly and vigilantly endeavored for the last three years to "reach a settle ment with Russia"? Mr. Churchill knows, or ought lo know, that it has been impos sible except to at?ree to any and all terms proposed by the Soviet Union without regard to our own interests or the welfare of other nations. And yet it must be admitted that the Conservative leader has ample ground for saying that only in reaching a settlement with Russia "resides the best hope of avoiding a third world war."

Bakers say the bread will be exposed to in tense, riigh-freciuericy heat and will . be a more uniformly-baked loaf than can be produced in any kitchen. WASHINGTON Whether it's Mrs. Truman's "Ozark Puddini;" or something called "stuffed monkey " that you want to whip rip lor the family, you'll find the ricipc in a unique GOO-page cook book due lo come out in January. It's the new Congressional Club Cook Book, latest edition of a vol ume first published by the congres sional wives' organization hack in 1927. In addition to some SO re cipes from foreign countries sub mitted by wives of diplomats, the book contains hundreds of recipes contributed by wives of cabinet members. Supreme Court justices, congressmen, former congressmen and governors of states. The First Lady, who joined the club when her husband was sen ator, has written a foreword for the book and contributed her fav orite recipe too. Signed simply Bess W. Truman. Missouri", are the following directions fur mak ing Ozark Pudding, a dish which features chopped nuts and apples and is served with whipped cream or ice cream: Mrs. Truman did not let the in gredients first. She just pilches right in "One egg and three fourths cup sugar, beaten together for a long time until very smooth. 'She underlines the 'very'.. Mix two tablespoons of flour, one and one-fourth teaspoon of baking pow der. nne-ei(!h'th teaspoon of salt. Add lo eg:',-sugar mixture, add one h.ilf cup chopped nuts, one-half eup chopped apple, one teaspoon v,,nilla. Bake in greased tin in a :jfiO-dcgrec oven fur 3.r minutes." Members of the club take pride in the loreign recipe section of the book TIkv feel they can help spread a bit of international good will by the exchange of recipes, says Mrs. Lawrence H. Smith, wife of the congressman from Wiscon sin and chairman of the cook book committee. The recipe for stuffed monkey, incidentally, was submitted by Mrs. Norman J. O. Makin, wife of the Aurtralian Ambassador. I called the Embassy to ask Mrs. Makin to please tell me how you caught the monkey in the first place and then 10 give me the recipe. I here was long and hearty laughter at the other end of the line, j "Oh. my dear," Mrs. Makin ex plained, "that's just the name of ; my favorite tea cakes. We really ! don t eat monkeys in Australia." i 1 he diplomat's wife explained the cakes are called "stuffed monkies" : ' imply bec ause you stuff them as full of as many different kinds of i nuts and fruits as you can get into j them, along wilh a variety of exotic 1 spites.
