WAYNESVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
THURSDAY. MAY 18, 1933
Haywood County Included
In Bank Offset Law Mon.
Depositors Of Closed Banks May
Sell Claims To Debtors lo
Haywood County was included in
bill recently introduced " lne
iieneial Assembly with reference to
legislation permitting depositors in
i-loed banks to sell their deposit
claims to debtors who can use them
to offset against loans.
Major credit for this Ifgislation,
which was widely approved here, is
iveii to Representative Sullivan of
iUmcombe county who engaged in a
voi it of skirmishes with Commis
sioner Hood of the state banking de
partment and came out victorious,
i he bank commissioner sought to
have the bill recalled from the. en
. oiling office, but was out-maneuvered.
F.ffoits to repeal the act also flounder
ed, the senate tabling the Burgin re
Senator Francis of this county and
nunagan of Rutherford, introduced a
supplemental bill bringing several
a ostei n counties under the Sullivan
-.ink offset act. In the house, Rep
1 1 t entative Sullivan brought the meas
i!o from the unfavorable calendar.
A'.oio it had been consigned by the
;i,f committee on banks and bank
er, and passed it despite the vigor
. .is opposition of the commissioner's
1 1 iends in this branch.
1 ht. final effort to defeat it was
unt ie in the senate when several sena
'.! blocked concurrence. In the con
uiciiee committee, Representative
' iii h van again won his point, bring
ing the report to the floor and secur
ng approval of the house. In the
.-(.iiate, approval was also voted and
hill was ratified Saturday, adding
i'i counties to its provisions includ
ing. Transylvania, Cherokee, Clay,
Henderson, Haywood, Rutherford, Ma
ioii, Avery, Polk and Jackson.
(ommissioner Hood secured the in
troduction of a statewide bill which
would have repealed the Sullivan act.
I he committee on banks and banking
leported it unfavorably, but again the
iiuii'.'ombe representative defeated it,
the house upholding his motion to
table it. . .
Representative Sullivan's final vic
tory against the stale bank depart
iii ni came when he brought the I'at
'"ii bank bill from the unfavorable
. .uvriiiar and secured its passage by
Introduced by Senator Patton of
'lacon, the measure provides:

Kirchhoff To Make
Asters Here Soon
Several Acres Will He Planted.
Company Is Pleased With
W. L. Boyd, who is retail sales
manager for the Kirchhoff Gladiola
Farms, announced yesterday that an
experiment will be made here with
several acres of asters in addition to
the 40 acres of gladiola; there being
about 20 acres already planted,
Mr. Boyd stated that he believed
that the asters could be grown here
successfully. "I am favorably im
pressed with the climate and soil for
gladiolas." he said.
The location of the aster farm has
not been determined. A place with
suitable soil is now bning sought.
E. II. Ganshaw, who is in charge
of planting, has already planted pboui
12 acres at the Sloan propeity an-i 5
acres at th Welch farm on Highway
No.-. 10. The five acres at Clyd-j have
already been planted. Mr. Ganshaw
will remain here until thj planting
is completed. Mr. Boyd will be here
until about November.
i.Mr..- Boyd announced that plans
were being made for the establish
ment of about 5 roadside stand in
Western North Carolina where fresh
cut flowers, bulbs and plants will be
offered for sale. No definite sites
have been leased, but negotiations arc
under way to establish stands at
Clyde, Black Mountain, Biltmore,
Lake Junaluska and at the Welch
"The majority of the flowers will
be shipped to eastern and southern
markets," Mr. Boyd stated. "It would
bo almost impossible for the local
:ndc here in Western North Caro
lina to demand aTl the flowers from
" acres acres."
-Mr. Kirchhoff is the largest single
gi wer in the United States, and sup.
plies large florists in the country with
flowers, as well as large seed compa
nies with bulbs.
If the flowers do as well here as
expected to do, it is Mi
KiichholT's intention to increase the
acreage next year.
The places where the flowers are
planted will be one of the show places
of YVes trn North Carolina.

Merchants Not To

The passage by the general assem

mandatory'. that the merchants shall

consumers was regarded as a signal,
of a last minute, victory for the mer
chants. Dispjte the fact that when
this proposal was first made, it was
viewed by some members of hp legis
lature with distrust, if not with alarm,
the bill had very little opposition in
