I must say that I really enjoyed the Wagon Train at Murphy,
July 4th. It was something beautiful and overwhelming.
I am aware that it is customary for political candidates ior public
office to be invited to such festivals, and treated equally, with
equal time to talk. I WAS invited.
But it appears that this occasion at the fair ground grand stand
was rigged from the beginning as a Democrat rally and show,
or display. Though the Democrat Administration has done no
thing as yet toward the construction of the required road to the
Tennessee line, which for the past three years has been the
purpose of the Wagon Train festivals.
I am informed that when the original Wagon Train committees
were announced in the press the reception committee consisted
of five or six leading Democrats of Cherokee County, and NO
Republicans; that this was called to the attention of the Chair
man, and four Republicans were later added to the bottom of
the list that was on the program bulletin, but not in the news
paper. All the Republicans named, if they were aware of their
being on the committee, boycotted the affair, except Mr. D. M.
Reese, who is Chairman of Cherokee County Republican party,
and Republican nominee and candidate for State Auditor, who
'did not know that he was on the reception committee until he
saw the program bulletin about the day before. He was not
even recognized nor given the opportunity to introduce his guest
Republican candidate for Congress. But Mr. Frank Forsyth was
called upon to introduce, with quite an eloquent speech, the
Democrat candidate for Congress, who in turn made quite a
lengthy and elaborate speech. Candidates Reese and Rollman
were completely ignored as far as speaking was concerned.
After being there on the platform for an hour or more, 1 decided
that I did not want to sit around and wait as I rather wanted to
see the Wagon Train in Murphy and then go on, since I had
another engagement for the evening and started to leave. But
the Co-Chairman, Mr. lack Dickey, cam* after us after we had
gotten off the grounds and vehemently insisted that I come back
and wait stating that he would feel badly hurt if I did not and
gave me his solemn word or honor that I would be given equal
Hme to speak, that if not he would ierk the microphone out of
the hands of the person responsible.
The readers of this paper, I am sure, will be interested in the fol
lowing correction of the statement that was made in the Introduc
tion, of the Democrat candidate for Congress, that he got such an
overwhelming vote. The two candidates for Governor polled
almost 42,000 votes, and the Democrat candidate for Congress
polled only 28,000. Does this show you the shape of things to
come? It shows that 14.000 Democrats who went to the polls on
June 25 and voted for the Democrat candidates for Governor did
not vote for the Democrat candidate for Congress.

The Soil Conservation Service
wound up its fiscal year on 30
June I960. This is the sixth full
year that an office has been
maintained in Cherokee County,
the office having been opened in
October 1953. The progress made
during this period has been quite
satisfactory from the standpoint of
interest shown in the Soil Con
servation Service and the Soil
Conservation District programs
since the start of operations.
Each year, the requests for
assistance from farmers become
more numerous. Fiscal year 1960
has been no exception and the
number of calls for assistance
has been larger in the last twelve
months than at any time previous.
Some of the major accomplish
ments of the farmers in the
county with assistance from the
Soil Conservation technicians in
clude the installation of more
than seven thousand three hun
dred feet of drain tile. The
majority of this tile was paid for
by the County ACP program, al
though more than two thousand
feet was installed by the farmer
without any assistance from the
More than six thousand five
hundred feet of open drainage
ditches were constructed during
the year. These ditches have
opened up a considerable acre
age of land that was formerly
too wet for economical produc
tion of crops or grass. It is
necessary in many cases to con
struct an open ditch to serve as
an outlet for tile drainage ditches.
The combination of tile and open
ditch drainage installed during
the year was responsible to bring
ing approximately one hundred
acres of land into economical

In most instances the land is

every farmer who has spent
money for drainage has stated
that it was the best spent money

Due to the heavy damage from

the past four months. According
to figures available almost three

is one of the most valuable ir

more of the rainfall will be taker

when land with low organic mattei

Many other good conservation
practices were carried out by
several hundred cooperators with

job of conservation farming dur
