Dinner In Asheville
Several fanners from Madison
county were honored by the Farmers
Federation last Saturday1 at the fed
eration's annual lOO-Bttshcl Corn
Club dinner at the George'Vanderbilt
hotel in Asheville.
The dinner is given annually by
the Farmers Federation in tribute
to each farmer, future farmer or 4-H
club member who has grown-100
more bushels of corn on one acre
land. This represents from three to
five times the amount normally'
grown on one acre a f ewjM ''sgo.
Governor Wr Kerr Scott was prin
cipal speaker-for the event, whcih
was attended by approximately 200
formers and county agents of 15
v Those attending the meeting from
Madison county were A. W. Huff,
Coy Morgan, ,W. L. Worley and V.
OF FARMS WITHIN
In reviewing the applications filed
for 1950 farm transfers in owner
ship, a decrease in farmland turn
over within the County is evident
when compared with the number of
applications of prior years at this
season. It is probajile that some land
transactions have taken ' place for
which en application for a division
or transfer in ownership has not been
made. In releasing this announce-,
meat Ralph W. Ramsey, Secretary to
the Madison County PMA Commit,
tee, stated that May 15, 1950 had. been
set as the closing date for making ap
plication for -1950 divisions or combi
nation of arms and that all persons
who have either bought or sold farms
Lor pans 01 farms should request a
transfer in their Tecorda .prior . to
May 15. As tobacco acreage quotas
are involved in . most ail transfer
cases within this County, it is. essen
tial, that ths individual farm records
be kept current if future trouble is
to be avoided by the parties involved,
Ramsey concluded. - J 3

Gymnasiums; Other Plans Approved
NEED SISGI YEN
By EDNA G. RHODES, Supt.
There have been no buildings or
additions to the County Schools since
1940. The enrollment in most schools
has increased due to consolidation or
an increase in the school population:
Therefore, almost all of the larger
schools are unusually crowded and
classrooms have been improvised
wherever any small space could be
found. This resulted in using: class-;
poms about half or even in some
cases one-third the size of a regular
classroom. These teachers could seat
only about 25 pupils and therefore
other teachers with standard size
classrooms have had to be burdened
with more students than they were
supposed to teach.
A thorough sd extensive study of
the existing conditions were mads
and the following. facts were found:'
