Grove Park Inn Retervet Biff Space For Presidential Party Ashevllle, Sept 10.—After view- Ing- the scenic grandeur of the Great Smoky Mountains on an all day motor trip, President Roose. velt whipped a major address Into final shape. /His trip yesterday through the thickly forested mountains — the highest east of South Dakota's Black Hills—was his Initial visit to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Starting at Knoxvllle. Tenn., after breakfast on his special train, he mad ethe 150 mile Jaunt to Asheville through wea. ther contrasts of heavy rains and brilliant, hot sunshine. Thunder roared and rain splash, ed down as he stopped more than 6,000 fett up In the mountains at Clingman's Dome to eat fried chicken with his fingers at lunch, time. But the sun burst out before he dipped into North Carolina by way of Newfound gorge, where the caravan of offllcial cars dropped down a steep grade scarring the mountainside. The President later described the park to reporters as "delightful" and "thrilling." "For 30 years," he said, "I have wanted to come here. At least half a dozen times I thought I could, but each time something has intervened. Now today I finally made it. "Not only am I not disappointed, but I am delighted and thrilled with It. It was a grand trip." Emerging from the park, he drove into the Cherokee Indian reservation and stopping on a broad athletic field, received from Chief Jjerry Blythe, the Wighest honors of the tribe and the .title "Chief White Feather." An Indian bonnet of brown turkey feathers with bases of purple and tips of red was placed on his head. Mr. Roosevelt leaned over the side of his «ar to talk with Chief Blythe, questioning him about the number of Indians on the reservation and what the bonnet was made of. He examined a long blow gun with interest, squinting through the hollow 10-foot pole and examining the sharply pointed dart. "Well, this is very, very Interesting," he remarked. A little later on a sign hung by the road read: "Lake Junaluska Greets Chief White Eagle."

Mission Fathers Sowed California Weed Pest San Francisco (UP) — California's famed Mission fathers used a trail of gold to guide their way about the West long before .real gold •became the state's chief claim to fame. OH their tripa of exploration they would scatter the seed of the bright yellow mustard, plant along their path. Returning weeks or months later, the padres would find a path, of gold sprung up to lead them home. In California now in the spring whole hillsides are covered with the gold of this plant- 1 — to the farmer a noxious weed. One mustard plant will produce a million seeds and the plants spring up almost overnight. PASSING IN REVIEW By WORTH SPEAKS Miss Dot Ervin going into cor. ner drugstore . . . Mrs. J. L. Me.
