Set For Friday 12th
(Continued from page 1)
the tour. It is the thought of the
sponsors that the tour is worth much
to the rural people of the county, and
also to the people of our towns who
participate. The Farm and Home
Tour is an excellent opportunity for
people of Haywood county to meet
together and see what is being done
to further the advancement of agri
culture and better homes which will
in turn raise the staudard 01 living
of our people in the county. It is
proven fact that the slogan, 'As the
soil So are the people' is correct,
one official said.
The route of the tour was selected
by the officers of the Haywood Coun
ty Mutual Soil Conservation and Land
Use Association, representative of
the County Council of Home Demon
stration clubs, along with represen
tatives of the Extension Service in
It was the thought of the group not
to select neeesarily the best farmers
in the county to visit on the tour, but
representative farms of our county
that could be reached easily and
farms showing demonstrations they
thought that should be stressed.
The tour forms on Pigeon street
(Highway No. 284) in Waynesville at
fl:00 o'clock. From here the tour
will go to the Unit Test Demonstra
tion farm of T. Weaver Cathey in
Pigeon township for the first stop.
Here Mr. Cathey will show a demon
stration he is carrying out " ridge
cultivation of hurley tobacco. Kidge
.cultivation of hurley tobacco in Hay
wood county is something that is new
to most tobacco growers of this sec
tion. Next Mr. Cathey will show his
"prize acre" of corn. Mr. Cathey
is one of the members of the Hay
wood County Adult, Corn Club. Mem
bers of the tour will also see a field
of snapbeans which Mr, Cathey is
producing for the local cannery at Ha
The next stop on the tour will be
at the unit test demonstration farm
(rover .1. Abel, also in Pigeon town
ship. Mr. Abel will show a pasture
demonstration using triple super
phosphate, and Mr. Abel states that
tie is getting excellent results.
Next the group will be shown beef
calves that are being fed for the Ashe
ville Fat Stock Show this fall. John
and Way Abel, sons of Mr. Abel, have
these calves as their 4-H club pro
jects. A hydraulic ram in operation
will be shown. This is a very cheap
way of getting running water into
the home. Everyone will be inter
ested in seeing this "ram" work.
From Mr. Abel' the tour will go
to the unit test demonstration farm
of Guy Chambers in Iron Duff town
ship, going by way of Canton then
to Lake Junaluska and to Iron Duff.
Mr, Chambers will give a lime demon
stration, showing the results of
ground limestone applied on grass
and legumes and also an economical
way of spreading lime with a lime
spreader which is owned by the Hay
wood County Mutual Soil Conservation
and Land Use Association for its
members to use,
From here the tour will go to the
Crabtree school building. Lunch will
be served by the P. T. A. at a reason
After lunch a short program will
be held in the auditorium. J. F.
Criswell, farm management special
ist from State College, will be the
principal speaker. Mr. R. W. Graeber,
forest specialist from N. C. State
College and Miss Anna C. Rowe, (lis
trict agent of the home demonstra
tion work in the mountain district,
will also be on the tour and will be
on the program at noon.
After the program is presented a
mare and colt show will be held. Rules
of the show state that the event will
be open to anyone wishing to show
a mare with a 1938 colt of this year.
All colts sired by a jack will be shown
in one class and all colts sired by a
stallion in another class disregard
ing the breed of the horse. All mares
will be shown in one class.
The mares and colts will both be
judged and prizes awarded. The
judging will be done by a competent
horse and mule judge from outside of
Haywood county. A prize will be
offered for the mare and her colt that
was brought from the longest dis
tance away. Much interest is being
shown by owners of mares who have
colts who expect to show them at
the show. Everyone who plans to
enter animals in the show are asked
to contact the county agent's office.
After the mare and colt show the
tour will go to D. Reeves Noland's

demonstration in kitchen improve
ment will be shown. Mrs. Noland is
a contestant in the kitchen improve
ment contest which is being held in
the home demonstration club. Wom
en, especially, will be interested in

electrical unit. Many farms in the
county where electric light lines are
not available could produce their own
electricity by this method.

progress to T. N. Leatherwood's farm
in White Oak. Here a demonstration
in forestry will be shown. Also gully
