C.. THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1945 12.00 PKK YEAK Butter, Cream Operations Purchased By Lexington Co. Ixantahala Creamery To Continue The Sale Of Grade A Milk After several years effort to secure a reliable whole milk market for Macon and sur rounding counties, County Agent Sam W. Mendenhall is happy to announce that the Coble Milk Products Company of Lex ington, N. C., have purchased the butter and cream opera tions from Nantahala Creamery. The change over from purchase of cream to the purchase of milk will take place as rapidly as the Creamery can notify in dividual patrons rfind Coble rep resentatives can see them. For the first week in Sep tember the Nantahala Cream ery routes will be run as same as the past and as rapidly as possible all cream patrons will be contacted as to the possibil ity of selling milk. County Agent Mendenhall points out that it would have been impossible to Interest any whole milk market coming into this territory if Nantahala Creamery had not developed an Interest in dairying and the' sale of cream during the past years. The fact that the Creamery has developed a business of 1, 000 pounds of butter per day proves there is real interest in dairying. Mr. Slagle, in announcing the sale of his Creamery business, states that he doing it large ly to further the dairy income and interest as he believes that a reliable milk market over a period of years will bring the farmer a greater revenue lor his products. Mr. Slagle will continue the sale of Grade A milk and continue to operate his Grade A business as he has in the past. The Coble representative pointed out, and it is hoped and believed, that a good volume of milk may be built up in this territory. The Coble Company has recently established a plant at Murphy and are installing a vacuum pan to process the milk in the Franklin and Murphy territory. This territory is well located from the standpoint of sales to the nearby cities in the south and there is no dan ger of producing too much milk. In order to be successful to the farmers and to Coble Company, it is going to be necessary to develop a real volume of milk and all the Coble Company asks is a fair trial of its market. The same prices will be paid here as are paid at the other Coble plants where 7,000 North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia farmers are supplying milk. Robert Hunt, native of Shelby and graduate of North Carolina State College in Dairying, will be in charge of the operation. It will be the desire of the Coble Dairy to continue the friendly relationship and fair treatment that has been the policy of Nantahala Creamery and ltd owner, Sheriff Slagle. County Agent Mendenhall be lieves that with the coming of this reliable whole milk market that the future of dairying in this region is assured. Franklin C. Of C.

The re-creation of Wllllams Va., by John D. Rocke feller, Jr., and his associates, has provided not merely an au thentic physical setting, but al so a group of , Williamsburg people who, by reason of train* lng, Interest, or aptitude are, literally, at home In that set ting.

Walker, of the local United States Employment office, states that finding jobs for veterans is relatively an easy task now. Due to the man power shortages, practically all of the men and women being discharged from the uniformed forces are absorbed by employ ers sorely in need of workers. Now that the war has really ended, many cut-backs and change-overs from war to peace production are being made. and. on a nation-wide basis, millions of Jobs are ending. And, there will be increasing numbers of men and women gradually re leased from the armed services. The estimated 10 millions of servicemen and women to be discharged now that Japan has been defeated will present a major employment problem. Also, there will be the task of furnishing information ana action on the many rights, ben efits and privileges available for the returning servicemen and women ? including the continu ation of high school and col lege education, vocational training, Insurance, legal in formation, home, farm and business loans, musterlng-out pay, pensions, and many others. The average soldier Is likely to expect conditions to be the same when he gets back home as they were when he left, par ticularly if he is returning from overseas. Just now, and for an Indefinite period, higher prices and limitations on what he an ticipated, such as complete freedom of action, are likely to beoome Irritants to the return ing veteran, It U becoming clear that the serviceman's ela tion at the time of his dis charge fades in proportion to the difficulties he encounters. Government agencies, patri otic organizations and the pub lic generally must join hands in getting over to the return ing veterans these five specific information objectives: 1. To inform the veteran, his family and the citizens of the community of the veteran's rights and privileges and where they may be obtained. 2. To show local citizens in all commijnities the need fot, and how to organize, veterans' information committees and lo cal information centers in co operation with Selective Serv ice, the U. S. Employment Service, and Veterans Adminis tration Committees. 3. To instruct the people at home on the treatment of the veteran, whether he is disfigur ed, disabled, highly nervous, or in perfect physical and mental health. 4. To acquaint employers with the many virtues of employing veterans whether they are dis abled, recovering from nervous conditions or in good health; and to emphasize to employers the value of the vocational and other training the veteran may have received and, if disabled, the rehabilitation he has been given by the military service. 5. To point out to the veteran his opportunity to help build a better America, reminding him that he is well qualified to do just that by reason of his mil itary and other training, his qualities of leadership, and his respect (or discipline, One Killed, Four Injured In Car Wreck On Co wee Last Rites Held For Mrs F.
