Bethel Hold Meet

The Bethel Chapter of the Future
Farmers of America held their annual
Father and Son banquet in the Bethel
hig-h school gymnasium Saturday
Saturday night, March 28. Fifty-four
people were present, including eighty
per cent of the fathers.
The main features of the program
were an address by W. R. Francis, of
Waynesville, and talks by Jack Mes
ser, superintendent of education, and
County Agent, W, D. Smith.
Senator Francis praised the work
of the vocational agriculture depart
ments of the state in general and of
Haywood county in particular. He
stated that the work of the two year
old Bethel chapter would compare with
any other department in the county.
Senator Francis also showed the
need for such work, and especially the
need for the father and son getting
together at such banquets. He furth
er stated that he did not know of any
other organization that held Father
and Son banquets.
Superintendent Jack Messer re
ported that the board of education
was highly pleased with the work of
the Bethel Chapter of the F. F. A. He
further said that he was pleased at
the interest the people of the commu
nity are taking in the work.
Mr. Smith spoke concerning the
importance of vocational training for
farm boys. He pointed out that the
farmers of today cannot be progres
sive if they cling to the methods of

J. B. Hutson Heads
Regional In The
New Farm Program
The new soil improvement program
will be administered under a differ
ent set-up than that of the old AAA.
Instead of commodity divisions for
the various basic crops, there are five
regions into which the United States
has been divided. Each region will
handle all crops in its territory.
North Carolina is in the East Cen
tral Region, which ha been placed
in charge of J. B. Hutson, former
chief of the AAA tobacco section.
"We who have seen the successful
way in which Mr. Hutson conducted
the tobacco program under the old
AAA are particularly gratified over
his appointment as director of this
region,'' commented Dean 1. O.
Schaub, of State College.
"Ho is thoroughly familiar with the
situation in this state, he has our
interest at heart, and he has .demon-'
strated his ability to get things done."
The new program iK like the old
AAA in some respects, however, the
dean pointed out. It will be admin
istered by the State College agricul
tural extension service and its corps
of county agents. At the same time,
much of the program will be handled
by community, county, and state com
mittees composed of farmers.
The state committee, to be made
up of representative farmers from
each section of the state, will have
a voice in determining many matters
The county committees will be in
charge, of local administrative work,
including the checking of growers'
compliance with the program. Com

Answer: Lambs will t.einn to nibble

It is usually profitable to provide them
with a good gram mixture at this
time. A good ration for this purpose
may be prepared by mixing equal
parts, by weight, of corn, oats, and
wheat bran. This ration should be
placed in a creep and the lambs al
lowed all they will eat until they are
ready for market. To keep the lambs
healthy and to eliminate digestive
troubles all refused feed and trash
should be removed from the trough
