It :s more than a resort town, however: even a short, flrst visit, outside the gala summer season, leaves the one who has sucii an opportunity a most favorable impression of the town and its citizenship. The v. N. C. Weekly Press Asso ciation, of which the editor of The News-Herald is a member, met in Hendersonville last week by force of circumstances rather than by design. The meeting had been arranged for Asheville but a ban on meetings of any kind on account of influenza prohibit? ed the holding of . the meeting in that city and almost at the last minute it was arranged to go to Hendersonville.

A bill recently: proposed in the Sen ate would authorize the election of county board of education by a Vote of the people. This issue has arisen at every, session of the General As sembly since a few counties some years ago slipped through special acts providing that method of selecting SPhool board. The General Assembly passed an act two years ago that per mitted nominations for members of county school boards in democratic primaries and the election of the nomi nees by the present method.
