Carpenter for county school house work, Jess Keener. The school board also voted to request of all the custodians of school property in the county that the school properties and buildings . be available for use for recreation and 4-H Club work and cooperate with the leaders of those projects. The need of community center! for these activities of the young people of the county is keenly felt, and the fact that the school build ings are the property of the people and are almost wholly unused ex cept for the 40-odd hours of the eight months school session makes this action of the board not only a reasonable demand but a signi ficant step for the progress of ed ucation in the county.

It was announced . today by -Paul H. Gerrard, forest supervisor of the Nantahala national forest, that the twelve . trout rearing pools at Ar rowood Glade are now being oper ated at full capacity .for the pur pose of improving local fishing by rearing the small trout, received from the hatcheries, until they are large enough to be placed in streams. When the fish are of suitable size, usually about 6 inches long, they will be placed in various streams throughout the forest, for the benefit of fishermen. This is' a cooperative project be tween the Nantahala national for est and the U. S. bureau of fish eries. Also, the state department of conservation and development has contributed a large number of fish from their hatcheries. At present over 100,000 fish are being held in these pools to be placed in the streams this fall. Every effort is being made to properly care for these fish, so that a good percent age will survive for the sport and recreation of anglers. The fish in these pools create a great deal of interest to the hun dreds of users of the Arrowood Glade picnic area, and to the peo nle who are at Arrowood Glade during the feeding time, the added attraction of watching the fish be- ing fed creates a great deal of in terest. It is the aim of the forest service to continue to rear fish and to systematically plant them in suit able streams throughout the forest with the ultimate goal of restoring manv understocked streams, to their original state of being well stocked with legal sized fish. Since this is a public project, the full coooeration of the public is essential and the public can greatly assist by abiding by fishing laws and regulations and by reporting anv violations to the .nearest state or federal warden.
