A large <;rowd was present and many gumes >\v>v played until aboi't eleven and all re turned home and reported a grand I time. East Fork News A few folks have missed our chat- | ter and made request that we write j again: so here we are. Fact is. : there's been so many things happen- j ing on East Fork we couldn't afford ;; to take time to write them all. arid ? too, we thought some one might feel j slighted and accuse us of parti-iliiy. : Unless our county was running a : daily paper and putting on two or j three extras every week there'd be ; no room for all our news. Somebody has asked why we (! ;l : not. give it to our present bunch of : county commissioners likv we did ?> i the bunch before them. Well, for one j reason, we've had a change, of heart,! concerning county officers, and es- i i pecially county commissioners. The .1; is no crowd of men on earth who have j to take as much cussing and get so j little pay. as county commissfoners. j | Thev are to blame for all the sins and ; misfortunes of all the folks: for all . ? the bad roads; for all the high taxes: j for all the drunken brawls: for all j the barefooted youngsters, and for : everything else. The old board was I cussed for getting money arid spend- ; ing it; for creating new offices: for.; paying high salaries, and for ever : so many things. The present board , ! is cussed for not getting money and j putting it into circulation; for cut- ' I ting wages; for not giving more peo- j pie iobs? in fact they are to blame : for everything past, present and fu- ; ture. So you see folks can't be 1 1 pleased. Right here and now we're j : swearing off, not ever going to fuss ' | at the county eommisisoners any , ; more, strictly let 'em alone. You see ! j we just happened to think, they don't j I need our advice or else they would j : have asked it long ago. They'll just I j have to work out their own salvation. > j We had just begun to think that | ; all the old election sores and bruises 1 j were completely healed, when to our surprise, all at once, up popped a full crop of candidates. Fourteen months before election ! We wonder what they want with offices anyway. There's no money to pay officers with and too, we'd like to know how they expect to be elected, with no money | to buy votes. East Fork is one the verge of a nervous break down. Did you know, our roads have been scraped, and | what we mean is : they are worked i good? honest, it is so. We can't I blame you for being so surprised ? | we are ourselves, and afraid to get a good long breath lest we wake up and find it's all a dream. We have no Associated Charities on East Fork, neither have we any bread line, and from the looks of our crops we won't need them for a while. Now if we can get just a bit of money to buy our children some school books and a few decejit clothes we'll be sitting pretty. Farmers are busy all day and long in the night hours ? taking roughness ? and soon their cane is to be work ed up. We're not fussing, for if we didn't have our crops to care for, we'd be on short rations. So we're mighty glad we have a bumper crop of everything. THE RIGHT WAY TO TRAVS1 is'by train. The safest. Most com fortable. Most reliabl*. Costs less. Inquire of Ticket Agents regarding greatly reduced fares for short trips.

CORBIN The Rosman School children show fine spirit in cooperating with the Agriculture boys and Home Econom- , ics girls in the canning of vegetables ] ter, Florence, were dinner guests of I Mr. and Mrs. Egerton Fletcher one day last week. Rev. Mr. Souther of Pisgah For- ! est, delivered a good sermon here j i Sunday night a large number from|i Pisgah Forest were present. for the unemployed last week. The Agriculture hoys and the Home Economics girls did the canning but the entire school assisted in bringing in the vegetables to be put up. The grades leading the school were the ord? 5th, 6th? and 7th. The citizens who gave money to buy cans with, salt, kerosene for fuel, and loaned ! vessels to use are all to be commended I for their effort in helping the less 1 fortunate. It seems to the writer that during ; these times when farm po^luce is hard to sell and so much o"it going to waste that our community and some individual farmers are sleeping on a golden opportunity in not start ing a cannery.
