TO PLAY GOLF HERE
"Open House" To Be Observ

Two Weeks Period.
EXPECT MANY TO PLAY I
, THE FIRST GOLF GAME|
W Hoped That All Citizens of
Town and County Will '
Open House will be observed at tho
Brevard Golf Course from April 15
to May I.
All citizents of Brevard and Tran
sylvania County are invited and urg
ed by the Brevard Country Club to
piny on the course, as the club's
guests, during these two weeks. It :s
hoped that many hundreds of men
aril women will accept the invitation.
No formal invitation will be sept
anyone. This public invitation is in
tended for all citizens, and the mem
bers of tht' Country Club will wel
come all residents of the county who
care to visit the course and play the .
game. To those who have never play- ?
ed golf, the members extend a hearty
invitation, and any member will he J
glad to accompany those who do not:
know the game and show them how,
to get started off.
Of course, there will be no charge J
made to any of t.he guests during1
these two weeks, as the club mem- ?
bers are extending tihis invitation in ?
its broadest sense. The course is now I
in the best condition it has ever been,
and those who have beten wanting to
learn something of the game could
find no better time or place to play
their initial game. . . ,
The members of the Brevard
Country Club would be really delight
ed should the course be filled every
day during the two weeks with cit-j
zens of the county. Many people :
here have never been on the course
and know nothing of the great amount
of work that has been done by the >
Country club in preparing a first class ?
golf course, primarily for tourists. |
The local course is recognized as one
of the main essentials to this com-,
munity in bringing tourists to Bre
Mrs. Harry H. Patton will have
moved into the club house' before the
15th, and will greet the visitors who ;
accept this invitation, . .
PROF. JONES MAKES j
Superintendent J. B. Jones, of the
Brevard schools, issues notice to the '
parents of the school children that
the authorities are not sponsoring
camping trips for the students, over]
night hikes, or any other activities i
except such as are duly announced
in The Brevard News. The children!
in the schools, the superintendent!
states, are under the care of their
parents from the time ihey reach
home from their regular school du
ties until they return to the school
room on the following day.
This notice' was deemed necessary
bv Prof. Jones on account of criti- j
cism that had been directed at the
school authorities because of a near-!
accident occurring to some of the
students one night recently.
Following is the formal statement
issued by Superintendent Jones:
"The attention of parents is call
ed to the fact that the Brevard
Schools do not officially sponsor
camping trips. After the children,
reach home from school they are un- ;
der the authority of the parents.
Teachers may go with them at times,
but they do so as citizens of the com
munity and not as official representa
tives of the schools.
Many people from' the county are
planning to attend the Scottish Rite
Reunion to be held in Asheville on
Aprill 23, 24 and 25. Several Master
Masons will go from Brevard to take
the higher .degrees, while members of
the Scottish Rite living here will at
tend to witness the beautiful work
Which has such strong appeal to those
who have seen its beauty and learned
something of its philosophy.
LOOSE FOR CATTLE
# Five thousand dollars are being
A circulated in this cotmty for cattle
~ by the county commissioners brought
shipped last we?k. Four steers sold
the sum of $498.50, and Mr. W. L.
Aiken, shipping the cattle, declares
it is a great waste and loss to the
farmers to sell their steers while
young. By keeping them ar.d feeding
them just a little longer, Mr. Aiken
says, psuch more money can be made
by the fanners.
R. W. Everett averaged over one
hundred dollars for 19 steers and just
a little under $100 each for 11 more.
Sir. Aiktn i3 enthusiastic in his be*
lief that 3tock raising would be the
best thing in which the farmers of the
county could engage. (

Many Brevard People Re

Mrs. Lewis P. Hamlin is critically
ill at the French Broad Hospital in
Asheville, where she was taken sev
eral days ago. Physicianb Tuesday
called for volunteers for blood tests,
deciding that blood transfusion was
the only chance to save the life of the
? .oil loved Brevard woman. A score
or more people in Brevard immediate
.y pi\ ;<.'n ,u themselves to the Ashe
ville physicians for tests.
Among those taking tne test were
a group of High School boys and a
group of Brevard ln'.tituue hoys.
Those from the High School were as
follows: Edgar Osborne, Bill Morgan,
? vibert Payne, Bill Erwin, Harold Kil
Patrick. Those from the Institute
were: Frank Jermgan, Troy Boggs,
Fred Priddy, llobart Goodman, Sol
Greear. Among the citizens of the*
town offering their blood were: Mrs.

Miss Clara Jones, William Allison,
Louie Loftis, Mrs. Charles M. Doug

The meeting last week at Rosman
High School was a splendid success
from the standpoint of attendance,
some farmers came as far as fifteen
miles, which ic certainly commend
able from the standpoint of interest
in farming for those men. The first
and only experiment on fertilizing
corn on French Broad Bottom land ,
iWas explained. The adaptability of;
this section for growing Irish potatoes !
was discussed. Experiments were !
shown where seed potatoes from this
state had been tried in competition
with seed potatoes from other states
itn.l the test showed that seed from
this state showed up favorably with
the other seed.
One of the most important jobs in
growing Irish potato crops is now
time to be done ? treating seed before
planting. In order to prevent three
important diseases in Irish potatoes
tin seed should be treated before be
ing cut to plant, as follows: Secure |
at the drug store one pint of foral- j
delude or four ounces of corrosive ;
sublimate and mix with thirty gal
lons of water in a wooden barrel, !
soak the potatoes in this solution one
and one-half hours before cutting.
Cut the potatoes and plant as usual, i
These materials are deadly poison and '
the water and potatoes after treating |
must not be consumed by man orj
ON BIG POWER LINE
.Much progress is being made on
the big power limfc to bte strung

it is reported that actual stringing
of the wires has been started at the 1
Greenville end of the work.
Pete Pithoud, superintendent for
the engineering company, is well
pleased, he says, with the results of
the work so far, and gives much cred- 1
it for the good showing made to the [
splendid cooperation and good work
on the par', of the large number of
Transylvania County mehi who are
empl'oyed by his company.
Revival meetings, which have been
CLtxch since Easter Sunday, will
continue through this week, conclud
ing with the Sunday night service-.
Services will be held each night this
week including Saturday night, be
ginning at eight o'clock.

eral babies, and any who desire to
unite with the church.
The' pastor, Rev. A. L. Aycock, who
is conducting the special series of
meetings, is continuing to preach the
plain truths of the Bible in a clear
cut and telling manner, and it is felt
that a d,eep impression for good has
''een made on his audience through
these messages each night.
(BIG SUM KtALIZtl)
Woman's Bureau Officials Are
Highly Pleased With the
Success of Venture.
Generally pronounced a most suc
cessful event was the Children's Ea
zaar, which was i.i operation during
the past week, coming to a close Sa
turday night. The bazaar was spon
sored by the Woman's Bureau, the
proceeds going toward the fund for
beautifying the school grounds.

ent booths all during the week, an d
dilmtfr was sclrved by a deferent
committee of Bureau numbers each

several nights, culminating Saturday
n:ght in a thoroughly enjoyable en
tertainment, including selections by
the toy orchestra, a miniature square
dance by children of grade 1-A and
other features. All the remaining un
sold articles were auctioned off by
auctioneer Rev. Wallace Hartsell, oc
casioning thereby much enjoyment
for the large number of people pres
The final event of the bazaar on
Saturday night was the popularity
contest the announcement of which
dir.clof.edd the winners to be Miss;
Ruth Cantrell, as the most popular j
young lady, and Mr. Harry Sellers j

It is understood that the bazaar
netted a neat sum for the Bureau in
