It is si-nifieant that bankers and farm

applies. -As the prospers, so prospers
the nation.
These two -roups have a part in dv
terminin.: the general economic welfare ol
this nation. The problems of each tn'oup is
.1 vital concern to the other. And for that
reason, the leaders are bein.u brought to
: ether to discuss their problems, and to hear
reactions, and stimestions for the other side.
This newspapi r teels :hat it is littnm that
sue:! conferences be held, and present prob

as well as on a down-to-earth basis.
There are but few national economic prob
lems that can be solved by theory - thev are
solved more satisfactorily hy those who have
the experience, and the know-how.
No doubt the results of this conference
here Wednesday will have a far-reachirr;

r.iM iculture and banking, as well as business
in ecneral throughout the five counties that

Haywood Churches Are Active
The Friday edition of The Mountaineer
carried two pat;es of church news of Hay
wood churches. This news was about the
activities of churches in every section of the
countv. and their programs for the coming
In rcaclin- a'l the church news, we had
a feeling that Haywood churches are far
more active than a lot of people want to give
them credit for being. We believe part of
this feeling is due to the fact that too many
churches have been keeping their activities
too quiet -or in Biblical language. "Hiding
their light under a bushel."
Among the many interesting items, was
the f;.cl that Btirnette Cove Baptist church
has bought a bus. This is another of several
churches in the countv that operate buses
lor the benefit of their congregation. We
believe's Chapel owned. a bus at one
time, perhaps still do. Then we have seen
a B:::bersville Baptist church bus operating
i: Kimdavs. No doubt there are many
ether;-. Facts such as these should be made
known to the public at large it adds to the
prestige of the churches, and the church pro
gram as a whole.
We are encouraged over the work and
accomplishments of Haywood churches. We
shall continue to contribute all the space in
this newspaper necessary to carry their ac
tivities. Worthy Of Appointment
We trust that Governor Scott will name
Thomas W. Alexander to the Board of Con
servation and Development. We feel that i
Mr. Alexander would be an asset to rtie State
board, as well as to this area. j

Should a wife smoke If her husband forbid It?
Answer: Either partner in
healthy marriage will think twice
before indulging in a practice
that is seriously distressing to the
other, but to talk about "forbid
ding" puts the issue On a different
basis. An emotionally cmTdish
woman may find a sense of secur
ity in acknowledging her hus
band's right to give her orders,
but with mature-minded people
no uch right Is claimed or exer
cised j either husband or wife.

Can a moron be made normal?
Answer: Certainly not after he

(Are childish people more
subject to illness?
Answer: Yes, writes Dr. Jurgen
Ruesch of San Francisco In Psy
chosomatic Medicine. Physically
mature people with "infantile
personalities" are the central
problems in the field of the effect
of emotional disturbances on bod
ily health. One main reason Is that
such a person does not plan his
life so as to satisfy his heeds. If
