All the boys and girls had a most enjoyable time and every one ex pressed the desire to return to camp next year. The following are articles written by girls attending camp, showing their impression of the camp: 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 trip." 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, Thursday we played 'Brother from England.' MY TRIP TO RECREATION PARK 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 . FARM 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 them. STUNT NIGHT 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. . i : : West's Mill Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Wadsworth. and two sons, Calvin, Jr., and Billy Bryson, returned to their home i:i Saginaw, Mich., after spending .10 days here "visiting relatives and friends.
