ing June 30, 1135.
Other counties in this immediate

42; Jackson, $248.09; Macon, $1,413.40,
Swain, $61.50; Transylvania, $2,985.15.
These payments together with the
increase in prices paid to farmers for
their commodities have been re fleet
ed in the larger income being received
by farmers, said Dean I. O. Schaub,
of State College.
From 1932 to 1934, he pointed out,
the total income of N'orth Carolina
farmers increased by approximately
155 per cent, or from $104,362,000.
to $260,449,000.. The .Idialt i.neome
The total AAA payments to farm
eis of the state during the past riseal

follows: Tohacco grower? $8,015,380.
21; cotton growers 85,945,844.43;
coni-hog producers $719,363.20; and
wheat growers $51,599.67.
During this period the .expense of
administering the programs amounted
to $1,147,290.71, or approximately
seven per cent of the total AAA dis
bursements in the state
The administration expenses Were
largely payments to county and com
munity : commit teemen who were se

Ralph L. Hebbard, of Washington,
D. C, Grand Master of the Grand
council, nf the District ti Columbia,
one of the distinguished'' visitors at
the Labor .Day. Assembly of the
Grand Council of Xorth Carolina, held
here this week, was high in his praise
of this svetion.
Since Mr. Hebbard is the water
works engineer, in charge of the
water meters of the District of Col
umbia, the first asset he named for
this section was the excellent water
supply of the town. He', expressed
great surmise in the progressiveness
of this area, and spoke at length of
the comfortable accommodations and
the food he had been served.
As to the scenery, he. 'Stated., that,
as this was his first visit to this sec
tion 'he was .not prepared for the
wonders of nature he observed on all
sides. He complimented thoee . re
sponsible tor planning the meeting at
Soco G?.r, and of the imnressivene
of the beauties of nature as a back
ground for the summer asseiiibly of
Hp snoke of his work for the Ma
sons, takihe him in everv state' of
the Union this year,' and of the in
terest "he felt, in each secticn. While
all the states have a certain aniom t
of local color and problems that make
them almost s small separate country,
bp aid he had been forcibly impressed
with the national spirit, that existed
throughout the land.
. -When asked, about the political sit
uation and how things were around
Washington he .raid:' "In tb.e District
of Columbia where we can not vote
we have no politics, but I will say
that now Congress has adjourned the
city has settled dowp. to real isork."

that tb.e towns of Waynesville and

that there not enough families :i

in the rejection, that the cost per

cords revealed that some 600 families
are on relief in the county, however.
The prokct has been estimated
would cu-t' SJJ 1,(100. Of this, under
the PWA set up, 100,000 would be
