Some Clover
Sample from Justice Farm
Measures over 6 Feet
The livestock of Mrs. John Jus

what a sample! It averaged six
feet, six inches in length, and has
not yet reached its full growth.
Mrs. Justice said she had between
three and four acres of this clover.
It was planted 16 months ago and
is not quite ready for cutting. The
acre tonnage remains to be seen
after mowing.

American Legion and other or
ganizations of Franklin, is making
a child welfare survey of Macon
county with view to obtaining a
roster of all ex-service men, chil
dren and orphans of veterans and
all children physically handicapped.
"The American Legion has a na
tional endowment fund of $5,(XX),(KX),
the income of which is now being
used for orphans and children of
veterans," Miss Jones explained.
"North Carolina has not received
its share of this fund, because no
effort has been made to locate the
needy persons in this state who
are entitled to assistance from this
Although only children of veter
ans may receive help through the
American legion endowment, it was
stated, other handicapped and un
derprivileged children will be listed
in the survey now being made un
der the sponsorship of the legion
so that they may be cared for by
state agencies created for this pur
The Macon county post oLlhe
legion has requested that all veter
ans in the county, whether mem
bers of the legion or not, co
operate with Miss Jones in this
project by sending to her informa
tion concerning any children in the
countv who are handicapped
through blindness, deafness, lame
ness or other afflictions and are
in need of assistance. Blank forms
for supplying the proper informa
tion may be obtained from Miss
Jones at the office of Miss Rachel

Most of Cottages Rented;
Mean Temperature of
66 Reported
Practically every summer cottage
in Highlands is now occupied, eith
er bv renters -or owners. The cool
weather is drawing large crowds
especially over week-ends, from
the lower states. The thermometer
has registered so far no higher
than 80 degrees this summer. The
average temperature is about 66
There is always a cool breeze in
this mountain-top resort even on
the warmer days.
Hotels report many guests. The
Martin is especially well-prepared
to care for its influx of guests due
to renovations made the early part
of the summer. Other hotels are
proving equally popular. Bobby
Jones is playing daily on the coun
try club course, near which his
new home is situated.
Talkies, managed by O. F. Sum
mer for the benefit of the school
are presenting pictures as recent as
"Flying Down to Rio." The pic

Per Head for Grass
Land Grazing
Ten carloads of cattle, estimated
comprise 3(X) to 350 head, are
xpected to arrive here within the
next few weeks for Grazing tm
Macon county grass lands. Al
though this county's full quota has
not been announced, it is thought
likely that Other shinnienfc nf rat.
tic recently bought by the federal
government from drought stricken
western areas will be sent here
later for crazine mirmicpc
Macon county farmers alreadv
have offered approximately 400
acres of fenced grass land. Besides
this, it is estimated, there are
several . hundred more acres of
grass land available and many
hundreds of acres of mountain
land suitable for ranging livestock.
urass Lands Preferred
Those in charge of placimr the
cattle in Western North Carolina,
however, are following a policy of
giving, preference to grass land.
l.enoir 1. dvvynne, of Haywood
county, who is directing the dis-
iriDution ot the cattle in the 18
westernmost counties of the state-
has received atmnrorl nf imfe
irons for 25,000 head of cattle in
this territory.
For grazing on strictly urass land
fanners will be paid by the federal
government a dollar a month per
lead, the grazing fees are some
what less on poorer grass lands
and wooded ranges.
Relief authorities here have es
timated that Macon county could
graze approximately 800 head on
grass lands and, if it is permitted,
1..MX) to 2,0(X) on mountain ranges.
Crockett in Charge
Distribution of the cattle in this
county will be under the direction
of the Rev. S. R. Crockett, garden
and farm supervisor for the Macon
county emergency relief.
Arrival of the first shipment of
cattle has been expected since the
first of this month, but shipments
have been held up pending inspec
tion of the cattle. No definite in
formation as to when the rattle will
be shipped has been received here,
but the relief authorities already
have prepared stock pens near the
Franklin depot so they can handle
the cattle on arrival.
If the cattle arrive this month,
they will have approximately five
months of open grazing. The gov
ernment has not announced its
plans for handling the cattle through
the winter, hut it is thought likely
farmers having enough feedstuff
will be given an opportunity to feed
them under contract, and some may
be shipped to the eastern part of
the state or to other sections
where year-round grazing is avail
able. ,
The. government has promised
that it will not place the cattle on
the market in competition with privately-owned
stock for at least three
years. However, it may slaughter
the stock and distribute the beef to
needy families through relief chan
