This Week With Macon County Agents By Mrs. Florence S. Sherrill Mrs. George Byrd, president of Cowee home demonstration club, has observed that, mem- , bers of her club have fall gard ens worthy of recognition. She , writes that, in spite' of busy canning season, the entertain ing of company, and all the other numberless duties of home makers, the production of an adequate home supply is not being neglected. Mrs. Byrd gave the home demonstration agent the following report: "Who wouldn't like to have a 'jjiess' of green beans and good corn on the cob as late as November, and fresh from the garden? If Jack Frost is as late as he was last year, you may be able to have these and other late vegetables^ Mrs. S. W. Carter, of Cowee club, gather ed green beans, corn, and let tuce from her garden November 5 of last year. The freeze was unusually late but you don't ; have to take a chance on the freezing of the more hardy veg- | etables that must be planted now for fall and early winter. "Golden Cross Bantam Is Mrs. Carter's favorite variety of corn, and white bunch beans, her favorite bean. Mrs. S. C. Leath erman 'keeps them growing' ac cording to John H. Harris, hor ticultural specialist of North Carolina State college, by plant ing bean seed from her first early beans. She practices this recommendation for greens that she sells on the curb market in Franklin. Mrs. Leatherman has staked her Southerland toma toes so that she can keep them covered with copper sulfate to prevent blight. She has a good sumlti.c to sell < "Mrs. J. L. West, Sr. is grow ing collards, brocolli, brussell sprouts, and cauliflower. She shares these more unusual plants with her neighbors. Be cause of Mrs. West's generosity I am growing brocolli for the first time this year. "Mis. Frank Gibson plans to sow Chinese cabbage within the next few days which serves as celery and cabbage until very late in the fall. Mrs. Gibson ad vises to sow rutabagors in July and if you haven't done so re member to follow this practice next year. Also, in July she planted Fordhook 242 lima beans. The butternut variety of yellow squash is one that she finds stores well until after Christmas, it can be planted in early August. You will notice that Mrs. . Gibson is thinking about these yellow and -green vegetables that every family needs each day the year around. 'Purple top' turnips is a good variety according to Mrs. Cart er; for greens the 'seven top' or 'thrifty' kind grows well during the oold winter months. Car rots and radishes offer a vari ety of root crops for the fall garden. "Mrs. Fred McGaha, Mrs. S. C. Leatherman and Mrs. S. W. Carter have found that they enjoy raising vegetables for their family use and can have a surplus to sell at the curb market. When you can sell six tomatoes for 55 cents, as Mrs. Carter reported at the July H. D. club meeting, it is well for all of us to follow John Harris slogan, 'Keep 'em growing.' Mr. Harris said, 'A garden _ won't make you rich, but I can't re call having seen a poverty stricken hoftie that had a good garden. Have you?' " Some 80,000,000 bushels of wheat were produced in North Carolina in 1951.

For ticket* and room accommodations write "Unto These Hills", Cherokee, N. C. SURE, a trim new Buick makes a mighty pretty picture when you see it in your driveway, or watch it wheel by. But if you could get a mechanic's-eye view of this big, broad beauty as it sits on a lift, you'd see an impressive picture of rugged brawn that makes good-to-k>ok-at Buicks give such B good account of themselves on the road. You'd see the full-length torque-tube drive that firms the whole power relay system, and steadies your going like a giant hand benfeath you. "You'd see big sturdy wheels with really wide rims that provide surer footing, give better car control, make tires last longer. [You'd see all four wheels cushioned by stout coil springs that are completely service-free, practically brcakproof ? and a principal reason for the ever-level Buick ride. But mainly, you'd see the missive foundation that backbones every Buick ? gg the deep, wide, X-member frame that's rugged as a rock, and a brute for strength. So when you look at the beauty of a Buick the big mileage power of its valve-in-head Fireball Engine? and the moneysaving abiU * ity of its Dynaflow Drive*? don't overlook the tough stamina that goes with it all. And don't overlook the fact that a new '5L Buick, with all its heft, costs less per pound than any other car of comparable size, , structure and weight.
