Picked In County
Official Of TVA Will Speak At
Court House Here On
The Township Agricultural com
mittees have selected one farm in each
of eleven townships to be designated
as a Demonstration or Model farm
for that township. All of these farms
have been mapped and the farm own
ers are now planning the cropping
system he thinks i.s best adapted to
his farm and any neighboring farm.
The farms selected by townships are:
Waynesville, J. R. Medford.
Clyde, A. J. McCracken.
Pigeon, John Justice.
Beaverdam, Will Hipps.
Iron Duff, Joe Medford.
Crabtree, John Rogers.
White Oak, Ben Wright.
Fines Creek, Charles MeC:aiy.
Ivy Hill, A. D. Hunter.
Cecil, W. F. Hipps.
Zast Fork, I. R. Howell.
It is hoped that every farmer will
take a live interest in the demonstra
tion farm in his township; that he
will make it his business to know what
is being done there, how it is being
done, why it is being done so, and
what results are obtained. From
time to time he will be asked to meet
the county agents and specialists in
various fields at the farm for confer
ences, demonstrations, and discussions.
! This i.s a co-operative venture prima
rily with TVA sponsorship.
Mr. Lawless, of the TVA, is sched
uled to lead in a meeting here at the
court house Thursday, Ma-ch 7, at
10 A. M. The township committee
men and the owners of the demonstra
tion farms, with their wives, are nut
only invited and requested, but urged
to attend this meeting in order to
have this direct contact with the TVA
and inform themselves about, the" pro
gram. The publi .; is cordially .invited
