Gov't. Forest Funds
CberakM County will receive
?ome *10, 474.58 from the Federal
Government this year from Nation
al Forest receipts, Forest Ranger
W. E. Howell said this week.
Ranger Howell explained that
while the Federal Government
does not pay state tax on National
Forest land, it does pay to the state
25 per cent of the receipts.
This money is distributed to the
counties according to the National
Forest acreage In each. The funds
are supposed to be used for roads
and schools, Howell said.
Qierokee County has some 81,431
acres of National Forest land, the
Clay County will receive $7,612.42
for its 59,173 acres: and Graham
County will receive $13,758.02 fpr
its some 106,944 National Forest
The total net collections oft the
1,113 831 acres of National Forest
land in North Carolina was
$586,797.23. The total 25 per cent of
the fund to be paid to the state tor
allocation to the counties k.
The average the counties will re
ceive is about 12.9 cents per acre,
Mr. Howell said, and is probably
a higher amount than what the
county would receive from similar
land in other ownership.

FIRST IN A SERIES . 23. June, 1955
.... We got to Augsburg at 3:00 today. We leftthe Butner at 8:00 last night and got on a Pullman ?
sleep wagon, they call it. which was real nice. We bad two compartments ? traveled first class. Debbie
and I slept in one part and Bud had the adjoining one. We had good meals on the train
and changed at Frankfurt for a day coach which was also real nice and roomy.
Germany is quite different from what I expected. It is very, very clean and some
places are real modern. Near the coast they use flourescent lights for street lights.
Some towns even have neon signs. The only American sign I've seen is one edvertising
It's mostly a farming country
and the land U really beautiful.
No matter how big or little a farm
or garden U, it la planted In neat
squares ? each kind of food >e pa
rated by a small walk and flowers.
We saw Heidelburg, Frankfurt,
Stuggart and quite a few other
places. There are some of the
moat beautiful old buildings,
churches and churches ! And flow
ers galore ! They hare flower gar
dens everywhere, even on balcon
ies of buildings.
Bom* plaoes are quite flat, and
others pretty mountainous. We
saw some mountains so steep they
're alnOet straight up. But tile
people still farm it, they terrace
the hillside, build rock walla tq
hold ?rety three or four rows and
narrow steps 19 the hill. It sure
took work and it's a beautiful thing
to lea. Not an inch at toad goes to
h tie stties the hoosM are hum
practically on top of each other,
they're so cloee. They're very nar
row and three or four stories high.
They all have red tile roofs and are
painted dull colors, or made of
Heidelburg has a very modern
train station. The terminal is built
up over the street and railroad
tracks. It is really nice.
We're staying- at a German Hotel

but Bud has to sign for them first
and maybe we can move in Satur
A PRETTY PLACE
Augsburg is ? real pretty place,
there are quite a few big modern
buildings, only I can't read wtiat
any at tharn are. it seems iobea
large place. There's a large park
across from the MM la the center'
ot town. And the meet beaaUful^
Most ot the peeyie here ride bt-i
cycles, or those funny little cars.
There are some of the funniest
looking 3- wheeled cars ? one in
front and two in back.
.... It's hot today. It got dark
at 10:00 last night and at 3:00 this
a. m. it was coming daylight. Ev
idently we don't have much night
.... We aren't allowed to drink
the German water, and I'm so thir
sty. All we had to drink on tin
boat was awful tasting water and
coffee and I'd give a hundred dol

We had our money changed yes
terday. We have markes ? which
are about M cents each; military

Group Says Will
Not Attempt Fair
The Cherokee County Fair Asso
ciation this week said a county
fair will not be held this year. '
The association said it was call
ing off the fair because it felt a fair
could not be held successfully with
out the aid of a county agent.
The decision was reached at a
recent meeting of the association.
Meanwhile, R. W. Shoffner, assis

McMahan, assistant county agent
will be transferred to another coun
The other county has asked for
his services and McMahan agreed
to the move, Shoffner said. \
The difficulty over a county agent

He said his office did not want
personalities to enter into the
county agent's job and he felt that
would be the case if Ketner were
employed in this county.
His office is interested in fore
stalling any further trouble in the
agent's office, Mr. Shaffner said.
He said he felt that trouble could
be avoided if another man far the
job was agreed on between the
commissioners and his office.
Mr. Shoffner said he wanted to
"sit around a table" with the
commissioners and work out the
difficulty so that an agent can be
brought into the county.
He is willing to meet with the
commissioners to work out the
trouble at any time, he said.
