Nantahala National Forest
The Nan.tahala National Forest
continues to enjoy the favor of the
traveling public. Four hundred and
seventy thousand, two hundred and
. sixty-seven people visited the for
est during 1941. In dollars and
waits it is easy to see that these
vis'Vots contributed to the prosper
ity of ttve county. We will not
presume that eath person spent a.
dollar while in the West but. we
will take for granted they spsjit
25 cents per person, which mikes
a tidy sinn of $117,568.00. We may
be talking in too low a figure, but
let's be conservative on this. Of
this number, over 60 per cant or
290,000 were ire Macon county.
The recreation facilities of the
Nantahala National Forest have
been used heavily. Cliff side Lake
Dry Falls, Arrowood Glade, Deep
Gap, Ammons Campground, Joyce
Kelmer Memorial Forest, Wayah
Bald, Wayah Crest, have had near
ly 100,000 more visitors than 1940.
In 1940, 92,000 people registered in
the recreation areas. I,n 1941 192,-
(XX) registered, and of this amount,
.173,000 visited the areas' in Macon
county. . 1
We are glad that the public' has
enjoyed this beautiful Forest. We
are proud that the Nantahala Na
tional Forest is a part of this great
Southern Appalachian region.
Recreation is one of the multjple

America will need tojWona of eggs this winter, as part of th -to
fans food" production. Kathlyn Hines, pretty 4-H club girl, shows
biddy that soldier hours will be expected. Many poultry producers
follow this practice of turning on electric lights in laying houses- early
in the morning during winter months. The practice compensates for
the fewer hours of daylight and gives hens a full day of eating .arid
laying. . . , ' ''

improve. This" means better health
and greater happiness.
Wild life has increased so that
today organized huruts have been
conducted this year. Bear and wild
boar have been bagged by the suc
cessful hunters. And Fishing! This
sport has again come in to its right
ful heritage. With streams stocked
with bass and trout, the reel limit

Farmers Urged To
Produce No. 1 War
"What can I dq?" is the ques
tion being asked now by North
Carolina farmers in the early days
of this war. Dean 1. O. Schaub
of State college, agricultural rep
resentative on the Executive Com
mittee of thoState Defense Coun
cil, answers the question in part.
He says : "Agriculture's part in
the war-time economy of the Unit
ed States iy to: produce the No.
1 war material food. We need to
grow more food thaji we've ever
grown before. We don't need more
tobacco or cotton, and if necessary
we should sacrifice acreage of
these two crops to produce food,
and feed from which food can be
produced." ; ;
The goals established .under thf
Food-for-Freedom campaign, , and
accepted by farmers when they
signed their Farm Plans for 1942,
will insure enough food for home
use, and for the fighting forces
of the United States and her allies.
"But under no circumstances can
we afford to , fall short of meet
ing these goals," he declared. "The
best policy now is to plan to ex
ceed the goals."
The two immediate and practical
jobs for farm people are to see
that farm machinery is in good
repair, and to collect scrap metal
off the farm and sell it to junk
yards, "Steel is , scarce," he as-
serte4-land more scrap metal is
urgently frgeded for steel produc
tion, j. ne mamU3-iurcrs oi iann
machinery must knSWat oroce how
much steel will be neaped , to pro
duce ''"repair parts foo&rm trac
tors, combines, and "Other ma
chines. The metal will be allocated
to produce these parts- The prob
lem right now is ncy determine
what parts are required"
The United States hfs ' gat
superiority in the matter of food,
Dr. Cchaub said, "and. it is up to
farm people to see tha we remain
superior." - .
