The Result of Hard Work
After all these years, it now appears that
definite plans are getting underway whereby
sufficient appropriations can be had to com
plete the Blue Ridge Parkway and the deal
Smoky Mountains National Park.
For many years, the projects have been
allowed to drift with the tide l indifference,
with the idea that some day something would
happen to bring the plans to a reality.
Everyone seemed to favor the completion
ot the projects, but the lack ol leadership
and initiative on the problems at hand kept
anything from being done.
It was almost by coincidence that the
North Carolina legislature in 1947 set up a
commission, whose duty and obligation it
was to promote and foster just such work.
This commission, headed by Charles E. Ray.
Jr., of Waynesville. began their work just
about the time that Rep. Monroe M. Redden
assumed his seat in the House ol Congress.
Almost at once, Representative Redden and
the N. C. Park Commission, with the aid ol
other agencies in this area, including the
Western North Carolina Associated Com
munities, mapped a long-range plan tor get
ting something done, and getting it done m a
The word hurry, however, is not found in
the vocabulary of the Federal government,
but anyway, the campaign was started.
First of all, and an important factor in the
program, was one of unity. With that assured,
the leaders went to work.
The results have been almost breath
taking. The men and women who will handle
the appropriation were brought down, and
shown first hand the territory and the un
developed projects. Then followed close at
hand. Secretary of Interior Krug. Then almost
overnight. President Truman put his stamp of
approval on the projects, and then the In
tenor Department revised their plans, and
included the work in the budget for next
All the while, there has been a lot of hard
work going on behind the scenes, and con
ference after conference held between all
the leaders interested in this matter of com
pletiniiSe jtjf major projects.
We have every reason to believe that the
leaders will follow this through to completion,
and that today the Park and Parkway are
nearer completion because of the consistent
hard work of those behind the program.
Fire Inspectors Coming
On Wednesday and Thursday of this week,
some 20 members of the North Carolina Fire
Prevention Association will be in Haywood,
checking for fire hazards in the towns of the
These twenty experts will check business
places, hotels, theatres, schools, and all
places except churches. They will be looking
for fire hazards, and will make suggestions
for getting rid of the things that can easily
cause disastrous blazes.
Of course all of us know the dangers of '
tire, but too often, we get careless and over
look the little things that can cause the
greatest trouble. !
That is one of the ideas behind the visit of
these specialists here this week to check,
and point out to property owners and busi
ness people, those things which have been
overlooked all of the time.
The citizens of this county are indebted
to the insurance agents for bringing these
specialists here and for getting the inspec

The Modern Fourth of July
Today America is observing the Fourth of
July, or Independence Day.
Many people look on the occasion just as
another holiday away from work, while
others will take a few minutes out to medi
tate over the reasons behind the events of the
All over the country, there will be patri
otic speeches, and in some sections, just as
here in Waynesville, there will be a parade,
with bands and military color.
Sad to say. the day has grown into one of
hazards for those who drive along the high
ways. There are too many who celebrate
without thought of their own safety, or the
safety of others. They just step on the gas
and here they go. just as hard as the vehicle
Our only hope of maintaining the Fourth of
July as a national holiday, and a day in
which Americans can again reaffirm their
appreciation for being an independent nation,
is to have more respect and forethought for
others on the highways.

Cooperation In Rural Sections
Not so long ago, Carl Goerch. editor of
The State, visited Haywood, and was so
impressed by the Community Development
Program that he asked the editor of The
Mountaineer to write an article for The State.
The request was met, and about a week
later. Mr. Clocrch received, the following
letter from Arthur Creech, of Statesville.
which was published, and we felt would be
of interest to the citizens of Haywood. The
"I was greatly interested in the article
appearing in the June 4 issue of The State
under the heading, 'Look at What Hay
"I am in favor of chambers of commerce
and other civic organizations, but the trouble
is that most of these organizations are located
in urban centers. Some time.ago the Ruritan
clubs were formed out in the rural areas,
and these clubs have done a fine work. I
think our main trouble has been that we
have been 'organizing' the towns but have
not organized the country.
"Haywood County has taken a step in the
right direction. Most of our people in North
Carolina live in rural areas, therefore it
stands to reason that most of our people will
benefit by the building up of these areas.
"You are to be commended for publishing
such an article, and I hope that it will be the
means' of other counties following the exam
ple which has been set by Haywood.''
