Last 'Sunday Franklin was honored
by a visit from Dr. Wm. S. Rankin,
an efficient executive and one of the
foremost medical auth6rities in the
south. While here Dr. Rankin had
uncheon at the Angel Brothers' hos
pital and inspected that institution
with a view of placing it on the list
of hospitals in the state to receive
the. benefits of the medical section of
the Duke Endowment. Dr. Rankin,
who was formerly connected with the
Stste department of HeallhY made a
national reputation in that capacity.
So satisfactory was the inspection of
the hospital that Dr. Rankin desig
nated it as one of the hospitals to co
operate with the Duke Endowment.
The selection of a Macon county
hospital for this purpose is quite an
honor for the county and means that
poor people who have not the money
to pay for expensive medical treat
ment can be accommodated at one
df the hospitals cooperating with the
Duke Endowment officials.
Dr. Rankin is now directof of the
medical section of the, Duke Endow
ment. Merchants Will Close

Large Crowd f People At
tend the Formal Opening
ot the Creamery Last Fri
day at Franklin.
Franklin last Friday celebrated the
formal opening f the -recently com- '
pleted plant of the Carolina Creamery
Company of Asheville, with several
hundred persons from the surround
ing sections of North Carolina and
Georgia in attendance.
vpenmg oi tne creamery was hailed
as an outstanding move in the agri
cultural development of this section.
The mayors of Franklin and Sytva
and prominent county and state dairy
and agricultural experts delivered .
addresses calling the farmers' attention
to the opportunities offeaed by dairy
ing and to the advisabRity of using
surplus crops to support dairy cows.
The addresses given at the court
house and the barbecue that followed
at the tabernacle occupied the greater
part of the day.
Mayor R. D. Sisk of Franklin made
the address of welcome and thanked
the Carolina Creamery Corapany for
establishing its branch here. Curtis .
Bynum of Asheville, president of the
company, responded declaring i that
the plant would be enlarged as soon
as necessity called for it. .
County Agent J. V. Arrendale then
introduced F. H. Jeter, agricultural
editor, State College. Raleigh. "Agri
culture in the State", sid Mr. Jeter,
"is handicapped by lack of education,
insufficient income and lack of pride
in the profession of farming." He
enlarged on these three phases tad
made valuable suggestions as to their
Pleading wfth the farmers to con
vert their products into manufactured
commodities, J. A. Arey, State dairy
man,, urged feeding of surplus crops
to live stock, principally dairy cattle.
Almost thirty percent of the agricul
tural income of the nation is obtained
from the dairy cow, said Dr.-A., J.
Glover, editor, Hoard's Dairyman of
Wisconsin, in the main address of the
day. Dairy cow by-products such as
skimmed milk and fertilizer are worth
almost as much as butter fat, in hb
"Western North Carolina" he said,
"has many ; advantages over . the
northern states from the viewpoint of
the dairyman. The principat one of
these . is climate. The saturation
point for the dairy industry in the
coantry will never, be reached in my
opinion. I want to see American
children fed on a balanced ration, the
principal component of which is milk
and J want to see America prosper
through the dairy industry prosper
as have Denmark and Switzerland.
Representatives from various of, the
counties in the western part of the
State and , north Georgia then mada
short talks, pledging their cooperation
toward making i'ranwins new in
