A Debt To Pay
The Red Cross is leaking an urgent plea
fur blood for the blood bank, to help replenish
the stock which has been drawn upon heavily
during the past few weeks.
Several months ago when the bloodmobile
uiiit was here, a total of 36 pints was donated
by Haywood citizens. Within three weeks, the
hospital here had used 76 pints from the
Red Cross blood bank more than twice the
amount that was donated from Haywood.
On Thursday the bloodmobile unit is com
int back, and- everyone will be given an
opportunity to give a pint of blood to help
replenish that stock.
Medical science has found that there is
no substitute for human blood in ma.iy cases,
and there have been countless numbers of
lives right here in Haywood that have been
saved by having the right blood to ive
j.iitients at the right time.
Tins is a call that is urgent a call that
: humane a call that is life and death.
The pint you give might be the pint that
saves a life even the life of someone close

At Last, A Landing Field
A modern landing field ir
been a much discussed ps-Mcc
years. Civic clubs, individuals, l
leaders have all agreed that sue:!
but it always appeared thai sot:
stacle prevented its reality.
The news that a landing lie
Creek would be reauy fur
first is good news to this t t
absence of a field, planes c'tr,:r;c t" Havwnt
have to land at either Ashcville or Siva.
As the nation is boo i in ins: ni. re uir-rnir.ik
a landing field is mure essential a piout
sive community than ever.
We understand that vv lave htre at tl

There is no question hut what the vnimer
generation will take to tin. air. as manv have
already "sprouted wnus" ami ail t.'iev need
are the facilities.
The encouraging thnv; ab"iu tins latest
enterprise is that it is privately ..wnc.i. and
not dependent upon public donations tor its
We are happy, too. that the project is
starting small enough to allow loi steadv
and tfensistent growth in the vears to cme.
It has been a number of years since the
citizens of Waynesville banded together and
raised sufficient money to buy about 33
aeies adjoining the State Test Farm for a
4-H Club Camp.
Now the news that the camp will open
August first with 1-0 campers is'encouraging.
This is only about half the capacity of the
camp, and the remainder will be built this
fall and winter, and be all set to open to full
capacity next spring.
Haywood is interested in 4-H Club work,
and has some of the best clubs in the state.
That fact, linked with the advantages of
being next to the State Test Farm, makes
this an ideal spot for the camp.

Another Big Still
They come big these days. That's liquor
stills out of the Bi Bend section.
Within the past several months, officers
have "cut down'' two iant copper plants,
with capacities of 500 gallons each. On the
last raid the officers caught two Tennessee
men, 124 gallons of fresh corn liquor, and a
truck, in addition to a big still.
The large outfits represent a heavy invest
ment, but from the quantity of goods caught
the other night, it would not take long to
repay the cost in dollars and cents.
Officers said the men did not appear sur
prised, and did not make any effort to run
or get away. It appeared that they had
figured, as most do. that sooner or later their
luck would fail, and the arms of the law
woUl&ljiuithem. Even with that in mind,
and knowing that raids are constantly being
made, the manufacture of illic . t hquor con
tinues, and in a big way. if we arc to judge
the business from recently captured stills.
Control of Pigeon Needed
An official request has been made to have
engineers come here and make a survey to
determine what can be done to prevent
damage by the high waters from Pigeon
River and some of the larger creeks of the
The call has been made through the
Extension Service to TVA engineers to come
here and make a check-up, and see what
can be done about this growing menace to
farms in the lowlands of the county.
Pigeon River is relatively a swift stream,
and the water level is subject to sudden rises
and also sudden falls. It does not present the
same problem as some of the more sluggish
streams of Western North Carolina that
cause greater damage when overflowing
than does Pigeon.
Since Pigeon is a swift stream, it can cause
untold damage by "cutting" and sweeping
away large tracts of land. Earlier this summer
the river left its course, swept across a field,
carried away all the top soil, and stayed in
the new channel. A more sluggish stream
would have overflowed, but would not have
had the cutting, or destructive force to the
adjacent lands as does Pigeon.
Some laymen have suggested a deeper
channel, and built-up banks to help control
the heavier volume of water which ijie river
has to dispose of occasionally.
We trust the TVA engineers will soon make
a satisfactory recommendation, and that it
can be carried out in detail immediately.
Farms washed down the river are gone
forever, and it does not take many such
"washings'' to have a depleted farm area
along the river bottoms.

what you feel your rights are.

Miller, Jr., in the North Carolina
Medical Journal. The word as we
generally use it Involves three
distinct things: a lessened ability
to work; measurable physical
changes like increase of lactic acid
in the muscles, and a state of mind
that is mainly an emotional re
