If the reading public loved his characters in hooks would they not lie at? tracted over a national highway through iho Cumberland, Ilm l?g Clack, Ilm Ihg Stone, and iho author's home town, and l'owoll's ami Clinch .Mountains if Sltcli highway carried the author's name or a suggestion from some of his famous sto ries? 'The ,/onesville mass mooting by vote rejected the names pro posed by lint committee and adopted instead: the Vlrjlnla*Teane*ie< Highway. 'This name was voted on with only two or three minutes dis? cussion and with little consid? eration as to whether the inline applied or represented tile whole territory from Kentucky into the Carolinas.
