Garbage fails On Soco
To Attract Many Bears

DR. DEANE W. OOLVARD
These men will be among the top U. S. experts who will aid in conducting the two-day Beef
Cattle Judging School being held at the Mountain Test Farm this week. The event opened today at
10 a. m. The beef cattle commission of the Haywood County Community Development Program is
sponsoring the school as part of the efforts to expand the development of top beef herds in this
county. ..! .
Before too long, motorists driv
ing over Soco Gan will find plenty
of hear aion the way. This is:
the prediction of Tom Alexander,1
an auliioriiv on mears ana ineir
Mr, Alexander bases his predic
tion on the fact that the State
Highway Commission has estab
lished six picnic areas on Soco
Mountain, along the highway tU. S.
"The bears will soon learn that
there is food in the garbage pails,
and they will make daily raids for
the easy food." Mr. Alexander said.
Plans are to put the pails in an
18-inch hole, which will prevent
bears from tipping them over.
General opinion is that the pres
ence of bears along the road will
be an added attraction to both
sides of the mountain. j
