Cherokee Co. To Get $10,474 From Fed. 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 ranger said. 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 acres. / 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. ' $14S,6M.30. 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.

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 Coca-Cola. ' 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 waste. 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 brick. 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 tonight and a? are four other. coup les base. Our quarters are ready, but Bud has to sign for them first and maybe we can move in Satur day 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 time. .... 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 ara for some good iced tea. We had our money changed yes terday. We have markes ? which are about M cents each; military payment certificate, which has the same value as your money, only not near as many denominations and it's an paper aad script ? the German paper money.

' 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 tant director of the North Caro lina Extension Service, said L. V. McMahan, assistant county agent will be transferred to another coun ty The other county has asked for his services and McMahan agreed to the move, Shoffner said. \ The difficulty over a county agent for Cherokee County started in the spring when the commissioners ' withdrew County funds from the salary paid G. H. Parley, then county agent. C. E. Hyde, county attorney, sa'd the commissioners have included in the new budget the county's nor mal amount to pay an agent if the state will pay the remainder of the salary. The commissioners have selected A. Q. Ketner, Murphy man and for mer county agent, for the job, Mr Hyde said. I But Mr. Shoffner said that his of fice feels hiring Ketner would not clear up the difficulty in this coun Ity. He pointed out Lhat his office had nothing against Ketner as an agent. He said Ketner has been of fered a Job with the extension ser vice in another county. 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. The extension service In Raleigh will not demand that any certain man be hired, Schoffner said. He ' pointed out that several men will be suggested until a man can be agreed upon.
