THE TRIP TO CAMP AND BACK
By Betty Jane Waldrdop
"The trip to' the camp seemed to
be a very enjoyable one except
some cars were a little crowded.
The cars left Franklin about ten
thirty Monday morning, July 12,
and arrived at camp about two
o'clock Monday afternoon.
The boys and girls from Macon
County went in cars, while the
children of Clay County went in a
school bs, and those from Jackson
County went in a truck. The cars
from Macon were driven by Dr.
O'Neil, Mr. .Brown, Mr. Alexander
and Mr. ' AI endcnhall. They all re
turned to Franklin early Monday
except Mr. Mendcnhall.. His cai
was very safely locked up. He left
the key in the car and locked the
key inside. , It couldn't be opened
until Dr, O'Neil went back to camp
Friday morning and took M rs.
Mendenhall's key to the car. It
was a good joke on Mr. Mendcn
hall. All the cars from Macon stopped
in Sylva to see how the. children
from Jackson County were going
and to give them a little informa
tion about getting to camp. Most
of the boys and girls of Jackson
Coun,ty went to the camp on a
truck. The rest went in the Clay
County school bus. .Most of the
cars stopped in Waynesville to get
dinner. The rest passed . on .-but
stopped in Asheville.
Mr. Alexander reached the place
to turn off the main highway first,
so waited there for the rest.
The truck from Jackson County
returned to Sylva and then went
back for the children Friday morn
ing. Dr. O'Neil and Mr. Alenden
hall and John Cunningham drove
back to Franklin. As no one stop
ped much on the way back, there
is nothing more to tell about . the
WORK AT CAMP
By Katherine Gray
"A number of 4-H club members
from Macon, Clay, and Jackson
counties went to Swannanoa to
camp. While there we had an en
joyable time. We were divided into
four groups. Number one washed
the dishes, number two packed the
dishes and cleaned the dining room!
number three cleaned the grounds,
number 4 cleaned the bath houses.
Ve all took turn about.
Each night we played a game.
Monday we played 'Steal the
Bacon,' Tuesday;. "Pop Says,' Wed
resday we had a scavenger hunt,

MY TRIP TO RECREATION
By Katherine Young
"The most interesting Ihing to
me was the animals .at the Zoo.
We saw all kinds of animals there.
And the things' I enjoyed most
were the merry-go. round, and rid
ing in little cars. As we were rid
ing in the Ferris Wheel, we could
look out the window and see the
people in swimming. Sometimes it
would stop while we were on top.
If any of you ever arc in Asheville;
or anywhere near Recreation Park,
I wish you would go and sec it.
THE TRIP TO THE TEST .
By Emma Lou Hurst
Clay, Jackson and Macon 4-H
club boys and girls visited the
State Test Farm while camping at
Swannanoa. At the test farm they
told how to feed the cows, how
much each cow needed and told
how they fertilized the pasture.
We saw how they used and incu
bator. When the chicks arc thirty
six hours old, they put them in a
brooder house and begin to feed
By AT arion Moody
Friday night was stunt night.
The stunts were all very interest
ing. Macon'County was the winner.
Our stunt was a miniature chorus.
We cut small dresses from' crepe
paper and sewed them on a white
curtain. Then we cut slits for our
heads, hands and feet. Three girls
put their heads through the slits
and put shoes and stockings on
their hands and put them 'through
other slits for their feet, ..while
three other girls got behind them
and put their hands through for
hands. Then we sang, danced and
did actions to several songs. Also
on Friday night we had a beauty
contest for the prettiest girl .and
the ugliest boy. Clay and Jackson
were the winners in this' contest.
Macon won the song contest both
nights. Mr. Hickman, the. camp di
rector, who weighed about 230
pounds was so. light that he could
not keep himself under water. You
should have heard the crash when
Myra Slagle fell from her upper
bunk to the floor.
From all of .us to all of you 4-H
club boys and girls go to camp
next year. You missed it.
