Chairman Of
Committee
Farm families of the Pine Creek
Area demonstration met Monday
night, February 20th in the old
Pine Creek Schoolhouse and made
plans for an area development
program.
Neal Tucker presided over the
meeting and outlined to the group
the purposes of the area betterment
meeting. Others on the
program included M .L. Snipes,
Associate Agent; Miss Mary E.
Johnston, Home Demonstration
Agent; and W. T. Brown, County
Agent. The group of farm men
and women discussed freely various
activities and developments
that they desired to be promoted
on a community basis. After this
discussion they adopted the following
program: (1) To beautify
the grounds of the new Pine Creek
Church and the cemetery; (2) To
practice good forestry management
including the setting out of
young tree seedlings; (3) To promote
pasture improvement in the
area by each farmer establishing
at least a small section of good
permanent pasture; (4) To promote
home beautification throughout
Uie community.
A committee was selected for
the area consisting of the following:
A. C. Edwards, Chairman;
Fred J. Brown, Vice Chairman;
and Mrs. Pearl Stewart, Secretary.
The group present requested
that a Home Demonstration Club
be organized in the area. It was
brought out during this meeting
toy various people that considerable
progress has been made since!
the establishment of the area demonstration
during the winter and
spring of 1945. However, it was
also brought out that by setting
up a new community development
program the entire area could be
more closely united and move forward
much faster.
These alert, wide awake, progressive
farm people in the Pine
Creek Area are really making
history and setting a good example

There were seven reactors out of

time was lost in selling eggs for
hatching purposes.
Mr. Cabe further stated that the
hatching egg industry is now expanding
in the county on a sound
basis. More farmers are now getting
pullets, and several of the
Cornish Cockerels have already
arrived.
Pullets will be available for several
more weeks. Farmers wanting
them should let any of the
agriculture workers in the county
know at once.

- A defective rear end was thought
to have caused the accident. Eye

that the raar wheels of the car

The citizens of Sylva feel that
the patrolmen have not been given*
a fair deal in being discharged and
because of this fact the Sylva Lions

Patrolman Lindsay has an 11

As to his standing with court
officials and local officers, everyone
is most high in praise of his
