Word has just been received,
states Forest Supervisor Melichar,
that March 31 to April 15 will be
the period set aside this year for
each CCC camp to celebrate the
sixth anniversary of the beginning
of the CCC. Inquiries have come
into the Franklin office of the Nan
tahala national forest asking when
the next open-house at the CCC
camps will be held. The people
around Highlands have been espe
cially keen about again loading up
all the school children and citizens
in private trucks and making a holi
day of visiting the nearest CCC
camp and the projects the boys are
Each camp will select its own
specific day for open-house, but
April 11 has been selected for a
special birthday party in Washing
ton. Mr. Fechner, director of the CCC,
says,: "The Civilian Conservation
Corps completes six years of suc
cessful operation on April 5. In re
cent years the Corps' birthday has
been made the occasion for the
holding of 'open house' celebra
tions in the individual CCC camps
to which the general public has
been welcomed. These 'open house'
celebrations have served a very
useful purpose for they have fur
nished the public with an oppor
tunity to inspect the CCC camps
and to look over the work which
enrollees are doing."
Watch this paper for further news
of the date set by each of the
three camps on the Nantahala na
tional forest Otto Camp south of
Franklin, Aquone Camp near An
drews, and Robbinsville Camp in
Graham county. .
Alder Byrd, of Burnsville in
Yancey county, reports that he
sold $50 worth of cherries from a
small orchard of 12 trees last sea
son. This is in addition to cherries
consumed at home. The reason for
this excellent return is due to the
fact that the trees are kept pruned
and cared for as they should.
Other trees in the community have
died for lack of this attention.
TILE DRAIN ;
Following a demonstration on the
farm of J. A. Ofmand, Daughtery's
Chapel community in Craven coun
ty, he is now using 400 feet of
drain tile and says that other
neighboring farmers will install tile
this season to the extent of 1,500
feet in reclaiming marshy spots in
otherwise fertile fields.
This is a good time to inspect your peg-tooth
harrows to find out whether all the sections are
in good shape. Each section should be solid and
rigid every tooth should be secure.
If your harrows aren't in A-l condition, come in
and let us show you the complete line of Mc-Cormick-Deering
Peg-Tooth Harrows. We have
a good stock of them in the style you like best.
There is no danger of a McCormick-Deering
twisting out of shape. These harrows are well
balanced and solidly built for good, clean work.
We'll quote you on a complete harrow or as
many sections as you need. Ask us about extra
sections to hook behind the plow or disk harrow
when you farm with tractor power;
