Area Growth j:
V. P. Nixon
By W. CURTIS RUSS
"I had no idea that Western
North Carolina had developed so
much in the past few years."
Vice President Richard M. Nixon
said as he rested in one of the
luxurious rooms of Lambuth Inn
just before dinner last night.
"One has to get off the main
highways to realise just what
there is to this vast seenic area.
"Of course you get this in
vigorating mountain air any
where in the mountains." he said
as he took a deep breath, "but
for such developments as Lake
Junaluska. Montreat. and Ridge
crest you have to get o(T the main ?
"I have met much larger aud
iences today than I had expected,
and certainly have never seen
friendlier groups than I have
been with today. It has been (
an inspiration, and I hope to
come back sometime to revisit
each of the assemblies.''
The Vice President made his j
way. still talking, to the end of |
the hall to get another look at
the lake and cross.
"The large cross on top of ; (
the hill overlooking the lake was
truly an inspiration?a perfect
setting for such a place as Lake '
Junaluska," he said, looking out (
through the trees on I.ambuth
hill towards the cross.
Mr. Nixon went on to mention
the many new buildings at the
lake and continued. "I have noted
new hotels, motels and tourist
places all through Western North
Carolina. This Is a wonderful
country?" He looked again at
the cross, and was standing there |
just looking, when a secret ser
vice man came In and said he (
thought they had better go down

District CDP Council 1
Is To Be Organized c
Haywood County has been asked i1
to send representatives to a meet- :1
ing at the Battery Park Hotel in 1

Vice President Hichard M. Nixon
told an overflow audience at Lake
Junaluska Sunday night that the
churches can play an important !
role in combatting Communism;
bringing about permanent world
peace; bringing about better labor
management understanding, and
helping "create a climate of under
standing and good will" which is
essential to carry out the Supreme
Court's school desegregation de
Mr. Nixon said, "Communism has
been and remains Godless materia
lism. Atheism is the very heart j
of their system. Their persecution j
of religion has been cruel and un
sparing . . . Communism is morally i
wrong because it denies human ;
dignity and the rights of mankind.
"There is a vital difference be
tween political neutrality and
moral neutrality in the present
conflict of ideals. . .
"Here is where the stern moral
judgments of our religious bodies
can do so much to clarify the
thinking of the confused. We do
not wnat or expect organized re
ligion to back the foreign policy
af the United States as such. Hut
when church leaders speak out on
the great issues of religious free
dom and its denial under Com
munism. and on the dignity and
'ights of man, in contrast to the
tyranny of the totalitarian state,
diey focus attention on the deep,
mderlying moral issues which are
>o important in this contest for the
<ouls and minds of men."
Mr. Nixon, in discussing foreign
aolity and foreign aid, pointed out: !
Giving must be motivated by
Christian love ... A related great
moral issue which affects Ameri
?an policy is the struggle for world i
Hace. The task is enormous and
he w ork is not done.
"The churches ean help in 1
trengthening the will for peace
md especially the will for sacrifice
or peace ... Those who will not
,vork for peace must face the cruel
?c ality of war."
In speaking of labor-management
?elations, Mr. Nixon told the Lake
lunaluska audience: "Our country
\ould benefit enormously if under
t.inding could replace resentment,

People began gathering at the
auditorium shortly after 5:30,
and by 7:30 there were but few
seats left. .Many people waited
outside the auditorium to get a
close-up look at the vice presi
dent, and missed getting a seat
inside. The benches and win
dows of the auditorium wrre
filled. Many folk sat in their
cars rather than stand.
As Mr. Nixon arrived at the
auditorium, he was greeted by a
large throng, and he surprised one
little boy by stopping and shaking
One of the vice president's first
remarks on arriving at the audi
torium was to romment on the
beauty of Lake Junaluska. A
highway patrolman in the party
told Mr. Nixon; "It's also a good
place to fish."
Walking to the rear of the audi
torium to the room behind the
? tage. the vice president greeted
one little girl standing wistfully
by a tree, and then stopped a mo
ment to pose for another girl hold

Mr. Nixon observed: "You have no
bulb, so you might not get a pic- i

when he does" (indicating a near- '

Kennedy is a Roman Catholic

Minority Of Children
Receiving Salk Vaccine,
County Physicians Report
Dr. How ard Smith, president J
of the Haywood County Medical
Society, said that the records
showed as. of this morning that
5104 Haywood children had re
ceived the first shot of Salk vac- j
cine through the schools, plus an 1
estimated 2,000 through doctors' j
offices, out of an eligible esti
mated 18.000. The number who ,
have received the second shot is
lie estimated there are approxi
mately 5.000 pre-school children in
the county and 9,000 school chil
dren, with 4,000 others through
age 19 On this basis approximate
ly one out of every three persons
eligible for the shots has had them I
??which he termed as an "alarm- ]
ingly low" ratio.
The doctors in cooperation with
the health department have set
up clinics for giving the polio
shots, starting August 8. These
will be held on Wednesdays, Aug
ust 8, 15, 22 and 29 at the Haywood
County Health Center from 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m.
The Haywood Medical Society
has worked out a list of questions
and answers which they feel would i
be of interest to the parents of the |
county. The Doctors urged the im
portance of each child having the j
polio shots immediately.
1. Is the Salk Vaccine safe?
Yes. Experience following the j
use of the Salk vaccine in over j
20,000,000 individuals has proven
it to be one of the safest vaccines
now in use. Stringent tests insure
1. Ilow effective is the Salk vac
The vaccine was approximately
80 per cent effective in preventing
paralytic polio in 1955. The un
vaccinated child is five times more
likely to get polio than is the child
who has received the vaccine.
3. What is the full schedule of
One vaccination, followed.by an
other injection at least two weeks
