Going After Business
All Western North Carolina will look with
interest on the fuller development of the
Western North Carolina organization which
began here Thursday, embracing 11 counties.
The tourist business in Western North
Carolina is about the same in each of the
11 counties, and by presenting an area pic
ture before the vacationers of the nation,
much more can be accomplished.
The same type program has proven suc
cessful for Florida and California, and other
vacation centers. The same program is pulling
visitors to the beaches of the Carolina coast
by the thousands.
Now that Western North Carolina is realiz
ing that the market for the vacationer's
money is a highly competitive one. perhaps
we ilL find a different reaction to the at
titude of gelling out and going after the
The organization which has just been
formed can go a long ways in making this
the vacation center of the East.
Mr. Eiler's Utter
The proposal of Warren Eller to lease the
former Belle Meade swimming pool, pavilion
and bath house to the Town for a recrea
tional center, is a generous offer on his part.
The rental would be one dollar a year.
Mr. Filer owns the Country Club, and this
recreational unit adjoins that property.
The pool would have to have some repairs,
as would the pavilion, but the cost of the
repairs would only be a fraction of the orig
inal cost of constructing the present units.
Under present health laws, the water in the
pool wo uld have to be treated.
This community has discussed, and talked ;
and dreamed of a recreational center more ,
than any other one project during the past
few years. I
Civic organizations have spent long hours j
discussing the needs, until now. the need is
admitted, but means of filling that need
have so far never met a satisfactory solution. 1
At ;'r.e time, a recreation commission was
set up here, and the work started off in a
satisfactory manner. As in the case of many
such projects, the, plan soon had financial'
difficulties, in that its operation was solely
dependent upon donations.
Mr. Eller's proposal is the best we have
heaid thus far in giving the community a
recreational center at a small initial in
vestment. As stated above, it is a generous
offer on the part of Mr. Eller, and shows
his interest in the community's recreational
No doubt some plan can be worked out
wherebv a recreational commission with
enough financial assurance back of it can
accept Mr. Eller's oiler.
The commission will want one thing as
sured before they start, however, and that is
the operating expenses will come from
sources other than voluntary donations.

Lack of Respect To Flag
Many Haywood service men have been
much disturbed since Flag Day on June 14.
;;i the lack of respect paid to the flag on that
and on other occasions.
Sever.) 1 score of former service men were
in the parade that marched down Main
Street that late afternoon of Flag Day, and
al! were aware of the lack of proper respect
paid the colors by the average citizen as it
passed m review.
One service man pointed out later that
some places of business left their flag out
all night, while others failed to take in their
fjag during the heavy rain before the parade.
Another iormer Marine cited numerous
occasions when the flags have been on dis
play on the streets and left out all night.
The public schools, together with patri
otic organizations constantly carry on a cam
paign to educate the public as to the rules
tor handling, displaying and respecting the
flag. However, it all seems to be forgotten
except in times of war.
Many a public speaker has reminded
America time and time again of the short
comings in the public display of our patri
otism. We do not feel that this county is any
worse about this than the national average

May "high standards" be an
excuse for inaction?
Answer: Yes at least, uncon
sciously. One way in which our
unconscious minds help us avoid
doing what we dislike, but regard
as our duty, is to make US paint . a
mental picture in which the de
tested task appears so difficult
that we arc able to convince our
selves we do not have the time or
strength to do it. A woman who
is so exacting about her house
cleaning that she wears herself

excellent excuse for feeling that
she "is not equal" to the job, when
it she liked to "clean," she'd be
