DOINGS OF SPRING
By N. L. PQNDER
This school opened the. first day
with an unusual attendance of pa
trons. It was at the opening the
writer wanted to crive a risintr vote
of appreciation to the Board of Ed
ucation, Board of Commissioners,
State Heads, and all others concern
ed' for what had been done for the
SDrine Creek Hiarh School. But
modesty and some timidity caused to
be left silent what should have been
spoken or acted. And now may
these words of the writer sueak in
behalf of the community from Bluff
to Luck the appreciation of a host of
pleased school patrons and1 pupils for
what has been done by our good
friends. Sunt. Blankenship, the Board
of Education, County Commissioners,
State Heads and all others who have
helped to make a real school in this
This is it. We hardly expected to
have so many good things the first
year. Then there was the appear
ance of new desks and chairs (no old
ones admitted) for teachers and pu-
pils. We wondered about lights.
So in one room sits a Delco plant
ready to be installed. And chairs
for the auditorium, they just kept
unloading them this week so you may
be seated when you come. Just last
"week thev let us have another bus
after saying we couldn't get another.

a great relief in our "sardine' meth

And did you notice that? A dandy
new highway is opening up Freeze
land, It's wider and better than No.

to our Metropolis. They're already
beginning that, and that makes one
think of this. A big taxpayer of this
community and also a leading citizen
and. a truthful man, has just now
made the statement that his taxes for
this vear show o be $38.00 less than
last year and he has besides a fine
consolidated school m 80 steps of a
bus and a few turns of the wheels,
and on to that a highway. It may

TIONS FOR HUNTERS AND
Madison County contains some of
the best hunting grounds in the whole
state. We have thousands of acres
of cut-over timber land mostly own
ed by the government, which affords
fine shelter and' food for all wild life,
such as deer, bear, turkey, pheasants,
etc. If these lands were restocked
the game would soon increase and
scatter to the adjoining farms and
communities. A good example is the
Government Preserve in Buncombe,
Henderson and Haywood1 counties.
If the sportsmen and citizens
would jojn in a concerted effort they
could obtain from the State and
Government sufficnt numbers of
every kind of animal or fowl for
We have in Madison County over
150 miles of trout water. The li
cense money paid by the different
counties goes to support the hatch
eries of the State. Each year mil
lions of voune trout and bass are
, They are then turned over to clubs
and individuals for distribution in
the various streams of the State. All
the cost to individuals or clubs is the
hauling from hatchery to stream or
destination. Of course, the stream
has to be suitable for the kind of fish
It has been determined that the
best results may be had from releas
ing fish from three to six inches in
length because of the larger fish or
anything else that may be in the

j . .L.I.- l- 1.. J ...J IV, tmtalf
treams being stocked and the small
fish fed1 and taken care of until they
are large enough to take care of
themselves before being released.
We have two pools already built
at Belva, N. C. Each pool is 36 feet
lontr. 6 feet wide, and three feet
deep, with three inches of cold moun
tain water flowing into them.
These two pools will support from
thirty to forty thousand of the small
fingerlings when taken from the
hatcheries. In about six months time
these fish will be from four to five
inches long, large enough to liberate
in the streams. We have at the pres
ent time about six hundred speckled
trout taken from the hatcheries in
July. They are now about five to
six inches in length and1 will be al
most large enough to catch when lib
erated next spring.
No county or community has any
asset that is a greater asset than well
stocked trout streams and good hunt
ing orounds. It not only furnishes
fine wholesome diversion for the lo
cal people (but attracts sportsmen
from other sections: Men who have
money are continually looking for
some place to spend it for things they
best like and fishing is the pastime
and sport of some of our wealthiest
as well as imost prominent men for
example, President Hoover, Ex-President
Coolidge, and thousands of oth
