James K. Boyd
James R. Bovd perhaps served more Hay
wood County people d urine hi lifetime,
than any other per' n in the fame period of
time.
Soon after finishing schu-l. he beiiar. teach
ins.1, and carried on his work on the farm for
15 years. Then he entered pehtics. and heM
the office ol Register of Deeds for four vears.
Just before his term of office expired, he he
came cashier of the Commercial National
Bank, a place he held un'ii the merger -villi
the First National in 1911. Then lie became
president, a position he held until HIM!"!, al
though he was chairman of the board (
directors at the time f his death.
His political career did not stop with being
Register of Deeds, however. He serve i f.r
11 years as a member of the Beard of Educa
tion, in addition to serving or the bn.,pi
trustees of the special Vayncsvi!k CKa-.cr
School District. He served fi-ur v.:rs os
mayor of W'aynesville. and f. a;r ther w '
as member of the board ol cmntv c ..:
sioners. His activities of serving a', h-mo we're
interrupted as he represetited Haywnod for
three terms in the North Carnima G'.-n-.ral
Assembly.
Mr. Bovrl was a charter menibT "i '.he
Havwood Building and Loan Associat.on. and
served as secretary-treasure:' over a period
of years.
While his business and political interest
took a lot of his time, he took an active part
in the affairs of the Methodist church. He h !
many offices of responsibility in 'he r!rr-h.
He pave encouragement, and n e,-,ns i, , t:t
support of smaller churches throughout the
area. S5jr
Mr. Boyd was looked upon bv banking
circles as a safe and conservative openi'.or.
His reputation went to the four corners of
the nation, when during the earl'.' thirtie.-: nt
many banks were failing, and runs were
being made on thern. he coolly announced to
his depositors to "come ret your nonov. it r
here for you." There was not a run on the
bank, and it weathered the storrn. and r'a H
open until President Roosevelt ordered all
banks to take a holiday.
His reputation as being careful and con
servative with monev. and especially to:-:
money and depositors' mono;-, followed Inm
to the Legislative halls of Raleigh, where he
was often called the "watchdog of the state
treasury."
Mr. Bovd had a keen sense of humor.
but would not wear. He never found
a tie was any benefit, and therefore
nt(. nt to go without one.
advice was sought by people in all
ol htc. He advised young people on
ducational problems, as well as busi-
re ; men on expansion of business ant
investments.
He was never too busy to listen, but he did
not make hasty decisions, and thought things
out for himself. He was deliberate in his
thinking, as well as thorough. He would
admit his mistakes, but when he was right,
he kept silent. He never acquired the "art"
o: bragging. To hear him speak of his worldly
possessions, one would gather he had but few.
which was contrary to the fact.
Few people knew more Haywood citizens,
their family connections, than did Mr. Bovd.
He developed over the vears the ability to
"si.e up" a person, and only on few occasions
v.-;i Ids appraisal wrong.
He was III when he died, and in those years
he had served a greater part of Haywood
c;t :rens in one way or another. Many of the
goals and standards he set in the business,
political and religious world will stand for
manv. main- vears to come.

The Cherokee Indian Fair
Starting tomorrow, is the 32nd Cherokee
Indian Fair. The traditional attractions will
be leatured again this year, and a large crowd
is expected to attend for the full week
festivities.
There is something about the Cherokee
Indian. Fair that is more than just the ordin
al y county fair. In the first place, the Indians
1.1. ( mselves attract a lot of attention, and their
handiwork, and agricultural displays are
worth seeing.
We have often said that the Cherokee
Indian Reservation is one of the best tounst
attractions of this area.
What is the greatest problem
confronting your school at this
tin'e?
Frank Roscrs, principal of East
V.'ax nes ille: "We don't have any
serious problems this year since
an additional teacher has reduced
our tiacher load to 30 to 39. But
wo have a problem that confronts
all of the schools that of over-
of crowded buses. Some of the chil
dren are forced to stand in the
aisles of the buses going to and
from school and this is iincmn
foi table as well as dangerous."

Miss Truman's Concert
It is our opinion that one of the largest
audiences ever assembled on the campus of
Western Carolina Teachers College will hear
Miss Marg'aret Truman's concert on Tuesday
night.
Music lovers of this area have looked for
ward to Tuesday, since the event was first
announced several months ago.
Miss Truman is a talented musician, and
the sponsors and officials of the college are ter.
to be congratulated for getting such a pro- m'u
gram scheduled for this area.
l-awrenee l.eatlierwood, principal
of Mazehvnod: "Our greatest prob
lem is lack of sufficient playground
space."
Fred Safford, principal of C'rab-!ne-Iron
Duff High School: "I
'.Mild say our problem is the lack
of ph; ical facilities. We could use
a tremendous amount of athletic
equipment, classroom equipment,
science and visual education equip
ment and more materials in our
hop and cannery."
M. II. Bowles, Township Super
intendent: "Our greatest problem
In the W'aynesville High School is
lack of classroom space."

role and undervaluing the female
role in our culture." If you want
to make sure that your daughter
will not have a happy marriage
or a normal sex life, brim; her up
to feel that "men have all the best
of it" and,that women who are not
on guard will be "exploited."
F.van .1. Evans, principal of Beth
el High School: "Our two biggest
problems now are lack of ade
quate water supply and rest room
facilities, and the need for some
thing to get us out of the mud.
The areas around the lunch room
and the bus-loading space are in
mud when it rains. We also need
a private telephone. The 'chool
telephone is on an eight-party
line."

Will good intention mak you a psychologist?
Answer: I'm afraid not. Com
mon sense and good will can go
far to helping you help other peo
ple solve their problems, but they
no more qualify you to deal with

Does "sex rivalry" cause sexual

Are glands what make children
"Fatties"?
Answer: Rarely, say Drs. Tte
vaud Lemicux.aTl Antonio Mar
tcl of Laval University, Quebec,
Canada. Especially in the early
teens, obesity is nearl.' always due
to over-eating. The fat boy or girl
is finding consolation in the pleas
ures of the table for failing to
make the difficult adjustments
early adolescence requires. At the
same time, being "fat" adds one
more burden to a load that is
already heavy, and the child's
personal problems should be stud
ied so as to help him see why he
eats to much and to find wiser
forms of satisfaction.
Canton Lions
Campaign For
Blind Funds
Members of the Canton Lions
Club, aided by the Canton High
, School Hand, last weekend cam
i piigned for funds to aid North
Carolina's blind people.
The funds were raised through
sales of the Lions Club's White
' Cane buttons and in recruiting of
l new meinbf rs and renewing old
memberships for the North Caro
lina Association for the Blind.
Membership fees are SI up.
The Canton club's campaign was
part of a state-wide drive to raise
$25,000.
The Canton Lions Club will use
one-third of the funds for its local
work. The slate 'association will get
the rest to finance its work in areas
Where there are no organized move
ments to aid handicapped persons.
A new electric drill for home use
is equipped with two sets of drills,
one for metal and one for wood
and plastics.
