Jonathan Woody has again been
named chairman of this area for
the Crusade for Freedom drive.
He headed the campaign last
year, which proved most success
ful throughout the state.
Appointment of Jonathan'Woody
as Haywood County Chairman for
the 1951 Crusade for Freedom was
announced today by John Harden
of Greensboro, Crusade chairman
for North Carolina, and James G.
Kj McClure of Asheville, Western
North Carolina chairman.
The Crusade will this year seek
enrollment of 25,000,000 U. S.
citizens and contributions of $3,
500,000 to expand its Radio Free
Europe truth broadcasts to the
peoples behind the Iron Curtain.
, "With the help of the American
people," said Harden, "we hope to
hflve" individual transmitters beam
ed to each of the Iron Curtain
countries. We invite the coopera
tion of all local groups and indivi
duals in this citizens' movement
to fight world communism. ,
, "We are fighting the Communist
leaders on their own level with
their own weapons," said Harden.
"The busier we can keep them Jn
their own backyards, the less
chance there will be of their start
ing trouble anywhere else. In the
words of General Lucius D. Clay,
national chairman of the Crusade
for Freedom, 'If we can win the
cold war we can prevent it from
becoming a hot war'."
Incomplete figures on school en
rollment indicate that a sharp drop
nas taken place since last spring.
Excluding Crabtree-Iron Duff, Mt,
Sterling, and the Waynesville Col
ored School k for which current fig
ures were not available at press
time, the enrollment last spring
was 6042. Present enrollment fig
ures, minus the three schools men
tioned, is 5446.
Officials stressed the fact, how
ever, that the 596 drop mav not
remain so large. They pointed out
that many students wait until af
ter Labor Day to enroll. Neverthe
less, a small drop is expected, due
largely to the influence of the de
fense effort making more Jobs

In a Labor Day speech delivered
at the annual picnic of Wellco em-
ploees, President H. W, Rollman
advanced a plan by which Wellco
and its employees can provide free
"radio pillows" to the Haywood
County Hospital. "Then again,"
said Mr. Rollman, "we will have
done our duty in spreading a little
bit of happiness as we go along,
we hope, to something better.''
,fhe industrialist, saldr. ;
.-"A little -over ten years ago, just
few feet away from wherewe-
are now, Wellco had its very hum
ble and modest beginning. Since
then we have not only made many,
many millions of shoes, many mil
lions of hospital slippers and many
millions of leggings, but I feel that
we have accomplished something
else, too. From beginning of a
very few of us we have grown to
he a company with about 500 peo
ple, working together, tolling dally
and earning a living. However,
earning a living and satisfying our
daily needs at to food and sleep
I believe is not the only thing we
have accomplished either. We have
accomplished to be a group of
people working together for the
common good, trying to make life
just a little bit nicer and easier
for the other fellow, and getting
thereby just a little more fun out
of life than people very often do.
"Many a person who talks about
capital and labor has never had
any capital or done any labor, and
this obviously has to lead to the
most unpleasant misunderstand
ings, misunderstandings which we
have never had amongst us, and
misunderstandings which I know
wo will never have, We have never
had a slow down, a sit down, a walk
out, a lotk out, or any of the oth
er unpleasant things that 'some
times happen when a number of
people work together for their
living. I believe that one of the
reasons that we have not had any
of these unpleasant things amongst
us is that all of us here, all of us

That the shooting of James D.
Frady Tuesday night was the un
expected climax of a carefully
planned robbery attempt, was re
vealed today in a signed statement
by Robert Lee Gillion. In reply to
questions asked by Cpl. Pritchard
Smith, Jr. of the Highway Patrol,
Sheriff Fred Campbell and S.B.I,
agent, P. R. Kitchen, Gillion re
lated the following facts:
He is 17 years old; he completed
the ninth grade at Center High
School in Waycross, Ga. He was
working for Mr. Frady as a handy
man, cleaning and mopping. While
cleaning Mr. Frady's bedroom
Tuesday afternoon, he decided to
rob him. -
The story continues in his own
words: "When I got through I got
a rifle out of Mr. Frady's closet and
carried it in the other room and
then cleaned up that room. Then
I went to the kitchen and cleaned
it and came back and went into
Mr. Frady's room and got some
shells for the rifle and then 1
loaded the rifle,"
When asked what he intended
to do with the rifle, Gillion said:
"Well, I intended to use the rifle
to rob Mr. Frady with, but I did
not Intend to shoot him, Just bluff

continued to cleanup and -iB-if4v
so found some keys. "I took one
off the ring," he said, "and fitted
It in the door and it fit and I plan
ned to use It to get in the house.
It was 10:30 p. ni. when I got to
the house. I had been to the show

bedroom and began fixing the
After a few minutes, according
to the story, Mr. Frady went back
to bed, and, said Gillion, "I finish
ed making up my pallet and then
lay down and waited 30 minutes
thinking about what I was planning
to do. Then I got the rifle and tip

at the gun and the gun went off

"When he said 'oh', I whirled and
run for the door and got the key I

door and opened the door and
went to Ma Simmons' house still
carrying the rifle. I laid the rifle
down beside the back steps. She
