Working Together
For Progress
With almost unlimited possibilities, agri
culture is making rapid and 'sound pro
gress in Wilkes county.
No longer can visitors refer to the "Red
Hills of Wilkes." The hills in Wilkes are
Much of the agricultural progress in
Wilkes can be attributed to a splendid atti
tude of neighborliness and cooperation be
tween farmers and business men, all of
whom realize that they must depend upon
each other.
The recent farm tour sponsored by the,
Wilkes Chamber of Commerce gave evi
dence of this fine spirit of cooperation. Far
mers and business men went together to
view some of the examples of what is be
ing done with Wilkes county soil to make
it productive and to raise the income of the
farmer, which in turn makes more business
for the merchant, banker or professional
One of the honored guests for the farm
tour was I. O. Schaub, dean of the North
Carolina Extension Service and widely rec
ognized as one of the outstanding agricul
tural authorities of the south. Commenting
on the farm tour Dean Schaub said:
"I was delighted to have had the oppor
tunity and certainly enjoyed the visits to
the farms together with the luncheon. I was
particularly impressed with the work done
by Mr. Andrews. He certainly has made
an outstanding demonstration on handling
badly eroded land so as to make it produc
tive. I wish it were possible for us to get the
18,000 acres of idle land reported in Wilkes
county to produce the forage like that on
the Andrews farm. It wfould mean more
than $1,000,000 in the increase of income
of the county if that were possible. Wilkes
is making progress, and I look for accelera
tion of better practices. The Chamber of
Commerce and all the other agencies co
operating in the furtherance of the agri
cultural program are to be commended."
Staton Melver, district head of the Soil
Conservation Service, in a letter to the
Wilkes Chamber of Commerce said: "We
wish to express our appreciation to the
Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity
of participating in the farm tour. W e were
very well pleased with the tour and glad
of the opportunity to be able to show farm
ers and business men some of the results of
the work of the Soil Conservation Service
in Wilkes county We consider it a very
fortunate situation where there is an active
chamber of commerce to carry out such
projects for the benefit of the county as a
One of our greatest assets is the very ex
cellent relations between business inter
ests and the farmers in Wilkes county. Such
relations mean greater progress in agricul
ture and business and a happier and more
prosperous place in which to live.

Clean Streets Moke
Good Impressions v
When you visit a town with littered and
dirty streets you immediately get an im
pression of that town and its people. That
impression would not lead you to locate
Much improvement has been made here
in recent years relative to having cleaner
and more attractive streets and sidewalks.
But the field for advancement in that direc
tion is practically unlimited.
The Civic Affairs committee of the
Wilkes Chamber of Commerce in recent
meeting gave much study to improving
downtown appearances and made the fol
lowing recommendations:
(1) That all merchants and business men
clean the sidewalk in front of their places
of business each afternoon at closing time.
(2) That the town wash the streets early
each morning to remove trash accumulat
ed there.
\of xiiat awiauuve anil suiiauie contain
ers be placed at proper places for deposit
ing trash. 4 i
(4) That unsightly trash containers be
removed from the sidewalks.
Enlarging on item four, the committee
recommended that containers which are in
good condition be given a coat of paint,
preferably green, to enhance their appear>
The public is also encouraged to use the
containers. There are sufficient receptacles
on our downtown streets to make it un
necessary to throw paper bags, trash, and
even empty cigarette packs, on the side
walks and streets. Just hold on to that rub
bish until you walk by one of the conven
iently located cans.
These suggestions are little things, but
are of sufficient importance that the town's
future could be determined by the appear
ance of one street or sidewalk.
