And Its Future
t Chief KXeeutive Averts Value Of
Tourist Trade Cannot He
AahevUle, Au«. 31—Governor O.
Max Gardner Fridny night advised
the counties in and adjacent to the
Great Smoky Mountains National
park to advertise It and prepare to
-eap the benefits of “the stupen
dous opportunity which this park
will bring to western North Caro
The governor spoke at a banquet
before an audience of county com
missioners, mayors and business men
from the park section.
Pointing out that officials of the
national park service estimate that
within a few years the park will be
drawing more than 1,000 000 tourists
annually. Governor Gardner enum
erated some of the advantages the j
Influx of tourists will bring to the i
'The entire population of North
Carolina,” he said “is three million
people. Can you conceive wlmt It
will mean to have one visitor for
every three persons in North Car
olina and to have all these visitors
concentrate in the main in this part
of the state? If the average expen
diture per person should amount to
$50, the annual harvest, of the tour
ist crop would be more than $50,
“This would set the value of the
tourist crop at twice tire present
value of our cotton crop and it
would'be gathered without the back
breaking toil of picking and would
not require the deduction of half of
Its value to pay the fertiliser bill."
Governor Gardner asserted west
ern Nortii Carolina would not be
the cnly section of the state to
profit from the park. .
“North Carolina will benefit from
mountains to seacoasi." he said,
“and east Tennessee will profit al
most as much as North Carolina."
He asserted the problems present
ed were "how to let the world know
about the beauties, the charm, the
appeal, the allure of this great re
gion; how to advertise the attractive
and delightful ways? of entering this
area through North Carolina; how
to get North Carolina and this re
gion In particular ready for the
great change tn this section which
the park is going to bring about,.'’
The governor appealed for con
certed action and elimination ot
petty jealousies In facing the under
taking nnd added In conclusion:
“Most especially do I urge upon
you tonight a unity of purpose and
a zeal of leadership that will catch
and capitalize for all of western
North Carolina the opportunities
that can come to It chiefly through
the broadest Rnd soundest advertis
ing of this section of the state
through advertising the park to the
nation. Through this lies more hope
of a return to prosperity than
through any other course."
Finds Other Things
To Editor of The Star:
'The best one yet, the court house
full, the county home full, the jail
top heavy, and note that they are
considering up at the court house
taking over the old No. 6 chain
gang camp for our 30 day bootleg
gers and of course that will call for
a few more two year pay boys.
You taxpayers, voters and citizens,
get up a club and go see our repre
sentative and see If he thinks there
will be any chance to get an act of
the legislature to get our board bill
reduced at the Jail, any way the
$1.00 or $1.50 turn-key fine to break
In and get out as the bootlegger
calls it. I do not see any relief com
ing from the court house as yet,
which from the way things look
will take a more drastic act from
our representative, whom I learn
will go to the court house for infor
mation and have most any law
passed that our manager wishes.
Lets take the advice of one of our
leaders, whom I think spoke a par
able If he can still stick to same,
which 1 believe the taxpayers In No,
6 ran vouch for as being very ex
pensive and as Q. M. Mull stated In
publication of the Star, January 18,
1929, "Abolish Chain Gang for
Economy." We have got rid of the
chain gang, let’s stay rid of any
thing that looks like one if possible.
