Ono nf (hp largest stills ever
captured in this section was
brought in about 3 o'clock Thurs
day from the Big Bend section.
Officers estimated the copper
dill had a capacity of 500-gallons.
Nine officers from Tennessee, j
the Alcohol Tax Unit, and Hay
wood, went on search of the still
about three o'clock Wednesday j
afternoon. They took their time,
and found the still. Two men who
had just made a run of the still
made a break, and while running
from the Haywood officers ran
right into the arms of Tennessee
officers just across the linn. The
two men were arrested, together
with 124 gallons of liquor, and a
The Haywood officers got the
still, and brought it here, where it
is attracting much attention, back
of the court house. i
The still was right on the Haywood-Cocke
county line, and about
two miles from the site of another
hig still which was captured several
months ago. The still was down in
a gulf, and well protected from
view by the dense undergrowth.

Lake Junaluska, according to a I
suggestion of the board of diree- j

The tourist committee met re- j

Court, but many people felt lho
more easterly intersection leading .
into Waynesville would be mure j
logical, according to Mrs. Frank '
Ktiutti, secretary. j
Volunteers are being sought
from those catering to tourists to
work in the booth about three
hours each afternoon.
The directors discussed numer

When It Rains They
Read And Read
I "It's not raining rain today"
. . it's raining readers. That
could be truthfully said by the
Haywood County Library this
past week, for they have been
kept busy every day supplying
readers with books of every type.
The Library, together with
four trips of The Bookmobile,
have passed out 1885 books to
eager applicants during the past
week. That is somethfng of a
record and certainly attests to
the popularity of both the Li
brary and good material.

"We must not overlook the fart.
Said thp snpalrfir "that thprp tc 3
factor in the world situation which
lias never before been present to
such a marked degree. It is not
entirely the same old world. For
the first time in the history of man
kind, the nations have been
brought so close together that it
is no longer possible to think intel
ligently or to plan for any part of
the world without taking into ac
count all parts.
"The question arises as to where
the individual Christian can take
hold upon such a complex and con

circle of his own individual being.
Until the individual, by the grace
f God. has made his own life a
part of the remedy rather than a

Positive force for righteousness.
"The second place where the in

realm of family life. The unit which
God uses in building a Christian
social order is not the individual
