W SHE CAM TAKE OUT MORE OPPOSmON THAN AN ALL-AMERICAN TACKLE' ' US The Smoky Mountain Highway As a last piece of fine public service while on the State Highway Commission. D. Reeves Nuland had the highway from Asheville to the Parkway named the Smoky Mountain Highway. Naming the section of the highway will set it apart from an ordinary highway, and will give it a title of distinction and one of advertising value to the area and the high way itself. Our neighboring state of Tennessee has lung found the wisdom of naming highways, and especially those in the neighborhood of the Park. The average person traveling through an area soon forgets the highway number, but a name lingers, and it is easy to tell others when they get home. This entire section owes Mr. Noland a debt of gratitude for taking this initiative and seeing that this important link of our high way system got a name, and a good one at that. 15 YEARS AGO Fanners vote to continue plans for the establishment of modern cannery here.

Catering To Tourists It appears that the sponsors of the Ramp Convention are going to make the event so attractive that it will appeal to the tourists in early spring. The group in organizing for the 1950 con vention have decided to stage the. event three weeks later than usual in order to appeal to a lot of visitors. According to official records kept of the crowd, it appears that the convention is growing so large that perhaps two days will have to be given to the occasion in order to handle the crowds. Any way, that is a matter that can be determined later. A Mid-Year Inventory The Methodists of the Waynesville district have a good business policy which they fol low. That is their mid-year conference in which they take stock, and find out just what is going on, where it is going and how. Such a practice allows churches time to pull themselves together, and get to work and complete a successful year. It gives all other, churches an opportunity to see what their neighbor is doing, and they can adjust themselves accordingly. a The practice is a good one, and perhaps would De Denencial to many civic organi zations as well as individuals. What: -Change The Name Of Maggie The State magazine published in Raleigh ! by Carl Goerch has taken a decided stand against changing the name of the post office ' at Maggie. Several weeks ago some mention was made of making a change of the post office and I area. but. after a mass meeting of the citizens of the area, the matter was droDoed. How-: ever, Mr. Goerch wrote his .article and his stand before that point was learned by him. Since his stand is so definite, we are pub lishing Mr. Goerch's article for all our readers: Up in the mountains of Haywood County there's a little rural community which for many, many years has been known by the name of Maggie. There are many people in North Carolina who don't know where Haywood County is, but practically everybody has heard of Maggie. When unusual community names are dis cussed, the name of Maggie generally is drag ged tinto the discussion. There's something folksv, comforting, sound and appealing about that name. It s a' name that has no frills at tached: it stands firmly by itself. And now guess what they're figuring on doing! They're planning to change the name of Maggie! It's a fact. Recently a mass meeting of some 200 citiaens was held at which the subject was discussed at leneth. Thev've imt an organization up there known as the Soco j Road Boosters Club. The members of this i organization are among those who want to ' see a change take place. Here are some of the names that have j been suggested: Socdluska, Soco City, Mount-! ain Valley and Mountain View. A committee has been appointed and this committee will give consideration to all these and a number L,Wis" M;"'But,':il'' Mass'f aends f ... May Dav exercises at Greensboro fFdllltra. A tourist, traveling through "Mountain 1 View'' or "Soco City," will do so without blinking an eyelash. .Just as soon as he gets ' on the other side of the community he will promptly proceed to forget all about it. So far as he's concerned, it will be just another wide place in the road. ! But what a different reaction when h e 1 comes to Maggie! He immediately sits ud and I takes notice.
