Aunt Ida, The Dancer
There has been many, many a i;ond dancer
in this community, and a "iiuoil cn.p" corr.ini;
on. But we doubt it there is one t:v. or ever
will be one that enjoys shufilmi; about and
cutting figures any nunc than Aunt Ida
Last week Aunt Icla was sjve:i a lovinc cup
by the Jaycees for her interest in square
Nothing that she has received in her 73
years has pleased her any it, ore than that
recognition. Up to this, nothing pjeased her
more than to have someone tell her she was
a good dancer arid a "oc! Republican. Now
the cup holds first place over ever thim: else.
Certainly, People Are Interested I
In the Work of the Church j
A lot of people would have us believe that I
the world is not as interested in religion as j
in the "good old days." j
We don't know so much about that. It i
appears to us, from local reports, that the I
people are interested in religion, and the
activities of the church.
Did not Lake Junaluska have a banner
The Hayvood Baptist Association had the j
largest attendance in us oo years.
The Methodists have set up high records
for the year just ending.
Revivalists report good attendance at their
Missionaries here last week visiting Bap
tist churches report much interest.
Two churches, costing well over $100,001)
each, are now being constructed in Canton.
Numerous other Haywood churches have
on building programs.
The First Baptists here raised almost
$10,000 in one week for their building
All this tends to prove to us that there is
a lot of interest in our churches. Much more,
in fact, than some of the pessimistic leaders
would have us believe.

Welcome, Admiral and Mrs. Thomas
This community is fortun.itc in having
Rear Admiral and Mrs, William X. Thomas
to make Lake Junaluska their home, now that
they have decided to retire from active serv
ice. Admiral Thomas was chief of chaplains of
the United States Navv when he retired on
Both of these fine people have been (niina
to Lake Junaluska for a number of years, and
it is'b'hly ifatural thai tfTey selected this as
their home when they retired.
They will be a distinct asset to the commu
nity, and this newspaper extends them a
cordial welcome as Havwood citizens.
Beauty Contests Increasing
You have to hand it to Americans for
beiiiL,' able to take what may come in the
usual stride, without becoming duly upset.
As safety councils started predicting the
horrible death toll for Labor Day week-end.
the promoters of beauty contests swung into
action. It seems that more than the usual
large number of beauty contests have been
In Id during the past week, including the big
one in Atlantic City.
And of course it goes without sav ing, that
the picture of a pretty girl in a bathing suit
gets far more attention than headlines about
death on the highways.
So it seems that Americans always have
a way of covering up some of the misfortunes
with an appealing program.

Science Promises Easier Living
A college professor recently estimated
that the modern industrial civilization of the
United States presents to each American fam
ily the mechanical equivalent of four hun
dred slaves. The professor maintains that
science promises us an even finer kind of
living than the wealthiest potentates of the
past ever dreamed of.
We would remind everyone, however, that
with this utilization will come new dangers
of the moral fiber of individuals, with some
persons degenerating into- flabbv indolence
and soporific stupefication. This does not.
mean that we should slow down industrial
progress because of the dangers that attend
its development. A people, blessed with such
benefits along material lines, must keep their
spiritual natures ahead of gross materializa
tion, if the nation is to live and be powerful.

Lethal As a Bomb
The cigarette that harmless looking little
tube of paper filled with tobacco can be as
lethal as a bomb.
Last year, in New York City alone, smokers
were responsible for more than 5 C00 tires
which did a total damage of some $3,285,000.
Tobacco was the biggest single contributor
to the city's total loss of just under $20,000,000.
We can't blame the weed for this sorrv
record- and it is a record which is paralleled
on a smaller scale in many other American
cities, towns, and villages. The offenders are
the people who do the smoking. They smoke
in bed. They lay cigars and cigarettes and
hot pipes down and forget about them. They
discard butts without seeing that they're
It has long been known that carelessness
with matches and smoking materials is a
prime cause of forest fires which have de
stroyed millions upon millions of acres of
forest over the years. This is one of the worst
of all tragedies fire causes buildings can be
erected in a comparatively short time, but
burned trees cannot. One cigarette, one
match, is all that is needed, when conditions
are "right," to destroy for generations a
How can such waste be stopped? Only the
individual smoker has the answer. It lies in
accepting the responsibility that is his every
time he smokes. The Sylva Herald
