Madison Farmers Attend Federation 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 counties. v Those attending the meeting from Madison county were A. W. Huff, Coy Morgan, ,W. L. Worley and V. L. HoUoway. r, , RE-CONSTITUTION OF FARMS WITHIN THE COUNTY 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 Schools Are Urged To Plan Arbor r Day Programs , 1 t Stite Poretter W, 'K.Befchler to.' day r " " 1 t " "s of NoVth Car- kolin : y t'.ia j'-ar. wIU 1 - - I?-- Cxijion Ljrvice U r.alc'sh, will pi., . i'-'H a pro -am, "9 discuss the. feeding and management Ha Uservance by school children, in V0 sheep 'and .ths possibilities of in order, that they may be taught to sptereasing sheep production in Madison prectate the true vatue of treea and County; " , . forests to their State.

Li VAX Hi Marshall Andjiot Springs TojHave Gymnasiums; Other Plans Approved EXPLANATION OF SCHOOLBUHDING 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:' , "5 ; SPRING CREEK r Osed the principal's' former office f or a . classroomi v The 'lunchroom consisted or oniy one standard Class, room which was used both for cook ' nd serving y: pn;is lunch oe classruuut ati i mwi .yip IsJLJwing fulfilled bra, building lunchroom and a home economics de partmenb V ' HOT SPRINGS No Gymnasium.'
