we all. or at least most all of
us, have traveled to some extt -t
and have been about in other
towns and cities. We have, no
doubt, in our travels noticed
many peculiar things and ob
jects of great interest as well
as very beautiful, which was a
treat to our sense of sight to
gaze upon, and again we have
viewed objects that, in a "way,
was not ’ so interesting, neither
were they gratifying to the
eye. In our travels we have
heard sounds and . expressions
that seemed to enlighten us and
bring happiness and content
ment to our minds, and again
we have heard expressions that
would probably create a feeling
of contempt or disrespect to
ward some people, however, we
presume all of this must come
during our life here.
To what the above paragraph
alludes, we do not have to get
out of Clintwood to experience.
We meet with such experiences
right here in our own town ev
ery day. Almost everyday we
hear some individual of our
town talking about his neigh
bor, talking about the school,
talking about the churches, or
in some way talking about his
home town. But to have your
home-town-folks talk about
their and your home-town does
not hurt so bad as having some
out-sider, a man from some ot
her town, come into our town
and use slighty remarks about
our school, our buildings, or our
streets. We may not enjoy hav
ing people come into our town
and criticise and use slurring
remarks about our town, but
after all, haven’t they a right
to criticise our streets or the
condition of our streets? Think
this over and take a look at
Main Street and you will agree
that there should be somethin^
“Better get a garden rake, or
drag of some kind and drag the
paper, bottles .and other trash
from your Main Street.” This
expression was used by a vis
itor to Clintwood not many
days ago. Wouldn’t any resid
ent of Clintwood have felt hum
llitated at hearing such an ex
piession as that from a strang
le \ , but it is an undeniable
tact that the trash the stranger
had reference to is there for
anyone to see. What are we
and the officials of our town
going to do about it? Are We
going to let this condition re
mam as it is and let folks tell
the world how unsightly our
streets are? Surely not. There
are several things that can be
done to improve the appearance
of our streets.
This article could be applied
to a few other neighboring
towns, but let us clean up the
streets of Clintwood before we
talk about the other towns.

Detroit, Oct. An indication
that the automobile industry
is looking forward toward in
creasing prosperity was noted
here today with the announce
ment by the Chevrolet Motor
Company that construction will
start immediately on a new
Chevrolet assembly plant in At
the Atlanta plant has been
made necessary to adequately
meet the requirements of the
rapidly growing demand for
Chevrolet cars in the South and
at the same time to relieve the
Cincinnati' plant, which has
been operating nn ...v/cuneastern
tauiiiess as well as that from
more immediate territory. The
Atlanta "plant will serve partic
ularly Georgia, Florida and
parts of Alabama and South
When completed early next
spring the plant will represent
an investment of more than $
2,250,000 , covering acreage,
building and equipment. Thirty
one acres of ground have been
taken over for the Atlanta lay
out. Building plans call for 410,
000 square feet of floor space,
including plants, office and
driveaway shed."
The plant will be one of the
largest and finest of its kind in
the south with a capacity of
350 cars a day. Work will be
provided for 1,200 people and
the payroll will exceed $8,000
The assembly plant proper
will be a one story unit, 800 by
320 feet, of face brick constru
ction with a monitor steel roof
There will be a Fisher Body div

160 by 680 feet, and parts sup
p y depot 120 by 204 feet. Plans
also call for a two story office
building, 40 by 204 feet.

hght assembly plants through
out the country and an export
plant at Bloomfield, New Jersey
Domestic assembiy plants are

The most important element in business success—
and the most difficult—is to be sure that you
have all the facts before you act.
To get them all, from every possible source, is the
first objective in General Motors. The Research
Laboratories contribute some. Fhese are nuggets,
left in the crucible, after hundreds of ideas that
looked good have been burned away. The Proving
Ground contributes others. Dealers contribute. The
public contributes. Every department contributes.
1 hrpugh the whole organization runs a spirit of
inquiry and of rigid insistence on proof.
/^\ut of such thinking come the new models
announced from time to time by Chevrolet,
Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Oakland, Hoick, LaSalle,
Cadillac—all with Fisher Codies. And by 1'rigidaire.
Each new model is a tested step forward. Nothing
goes into it as a result of habit or guess or pride of
Nothing counts but hard-won facts, gathered and
used with an open mind.
