Letter from Mr. Ammon, Telling how
"The Bc.ys" are Seeing It
I wil Itry to give you some idea of
what we county agents arc doin.tr :
? We arc in school studying, not
theories, but practical methods of do
ing what should be done in- our coun
ties; we. are exchanging ideas, and
from this source we gather much
Much stress is being laid on hav
ing definite plans of work for the
county, and for each community. The
.making-up of these plans for devel
opment is why we organize the
county boards of agriculture. And
the Extension Division will not be
satisfied until each County has a
Board of Agriculture.
Another matter that is being em
phasized is economics, as applied to
farming. This is supposed to be a
very dry subject and too theoretical
for farmers, but it becomes very in
teresting when they can show you
that hogs sell at certain prices about
every three years, and that at pres
ent the trend of prices is up and is I
rather certain to be up for twelve to
' eighteen months, and then down;
farther that cattle are now on the up
ward trend and will very likely be
up for two seasons, and then buck
down; and that when the interest
rate of money in Wall Street and
other money centers, is very low as
this par^t summer, you can .expect
farm prices in general to go up. So
we have a year or two years of good
From these lectures we learn that
one of tin- farmer's big problems is
to keep down production to the point
of just meeting our needs.
The department at Washington has j
a man here teaching us the use of j
the lantern slides, charts, posters,
taking pictures, ar.d best of all how
to use our local 'papers in giving to
the fanner information that they
should have. _ !
This study of publicity as applied ,
to Couvty Extension Work is very in- I ,
terestirig. and Mr. Editor, you may |
yet tire of our efforts in trying to j ;
put into practice what we have
The club work with boys and girls
is receiving much attention. 1 he idea
is that when we teach an adult, he
wlil pass on in 10 to 15 year.--, but I
with 'the boys and girls the good re
sults will last 30 to 40 years. The
conclusion arrived at from hearing
the different agents tell of tin-it. c.x
pefier.ee in starting work in new
counties is that the best way to start
is with the boys and girls.
Most all agents tell storiiv ui how
ciuii work with boys who have given

the result that some of those boys
are now here in college.

Chamber of Commerce
[? Canvass Is Big Success
The Chamber of Commerce of Transylvania County had a most
successful drive for membership Tuesday, and added about seventy-eight
new members. Before the completion of the drive_ it is hoped that the
membership will be at least two hundred and twenty-five.
While there may be larger Chambers of Commerce in the State, there
are none more active or doing more good than the Transylvania Chamber.
Space will not permit us to go into the merits and show what the
Chamber has done during its first year of existence, but we will wait until
after the completion of this present campaign and then hope to publish an
article^which will describe the activities of that body and which will be a
source of pride to the citizens of our County

WEEK OF PRAYER
In accordance wit hthe plan of all
Baptist churches throughout the
country to observe annually the first
week in January as a special week
of prayer, the ladies of the Brevard

each afternoon last week. The spe
cial object of these services was tc
pray for the advancement ojf mis

The first meeting of the series was
held at the local church, but the
