Farmers To Be Present At

One df the most important meet

nciy for this county.
Mr. Smith and others have been
working for the past several weeks on
these projects, and some definite
.t-s are expected to be taken at the
meeting Saturday morning.
In a formal statement he said. "We
car. put a cannery in operation here
thus sumnier if the farmers are inter,
rsted and ready to grow the truck.
The only way we can know what they
want is for them to be at Saturday's
meeting and express an opinion.
"All farmers who are planning to
grow certified seed potatoes should
in present, because there will be some
things that will be discussed that all
should know," Mr. Smith continued.
"Another mater that a number of
tanners are interested in is a milk
market here, and those who are inter
ested in this will be given some .in
formation," Mr. Smith continued,
"Many farmers have told me that
they want to grow tomatoes and other
truck, and we expect to come to some
decision, one way or another. Let me
urge all farmers to be present."
It is known that several of the
matters, which Mr. Smith mentioned
will depend on the response at the
meeting Saturday as to whether the
projects will materialize or not.
