THURSDAY, JUNE 21. 1934
I-'riday of :his week has been set a,-ide as
Farmer's Day in Haywood County. This will
be a day when the farmers of the county will
gather and hear discussions by capable men
about problems that are confronting farmers of
this section at present.
V. D. Smith has arranged a program that
will be of special interest to tv.:y farmer of
this county; and not only will it be interesting,
but it will be most beneficial. Some of the be.s:
talent available will be brought here and appear
on the program.
The entire day will not be devoted to ad.
dresses and educational features, but will in
clude athletic events that the average farmer
can participate in. which will, be both amusing
and perhaps profitable to a few lucky ones who
After the strenuous activities, the mana
ger of the new Creamery will provide all the ice
cream tha: those attending Farmer's Day hero-can-
eat'.' That is rather a large order, but he
is determined -to see ': Haywood farmers filled
with hi- :ce cream, provided they furnish their
own dishe.- and spoons.

"There is the nincompoop, who starts:
blowing his horn half a block before-he gets to
a street light or intersection to let folk know
that he is coming and -that all must, give way
to him or he will clear the way itself." adds. the
Gastonia Gazette. "The very sound of his horn
has an insolent and aggravating tone. We would
like to shower down on him,;
"v "Then, there is the man. generally the pro.
fessional driver, who thinks the road or. street
' belong? to him. and that he has the right of
way over everybody else. Some, local taxi driv
ers act as if their lives depended on their get
ting somewhere in the quickest possible time.
' and they dash, in and out and around other peo
ple on the streets, speed up to .40 miles an Jiour.
on a downtown street, honk and blow their
horns wildly and constantly at the slightest de
lay or inconvenience. We would like to see some
of them taken down a peg or two.
"And as for these motorcycle drivers if
there is any bigger pest, we don't know it. The
machine at best is a big nuisance, but when the
rider tries to make as much noise as he can, it
is positively disgusting and nerve-racking. Some
of the colored delivery boys around town who
ride these things might be given a lesson or
two in common courtesy by the.ir employers be.
fore they are taken up by the police." Ex.

Shifts in population that have drawn the
balance of numerical power from rural to urban
areas in some parts of the United States have
not occured with similar emphasis in this state
Dr. C. Horace Hamilton, associate rural
sociologist of State College, has authorized an
informative brochure setting forth what hap
pened to the population of North Carolina dur
ing the decade ending 1930, a study revealing
that in that year the total population of the
state was 3,170.276. of which 1,597,220 wer
classed as rural-farm. 763, 2o9 as rural non.

In 'the past, there were very few national
parks except in the West, This was partly be
cause they could be. carved out of public do
main, of which there was practically none left
in the East. , Resides, most of the outstanding
examples of supreme scenic effects were in the
West. More recently, however, there have been
added many of the shrines and historic spots
of . our Colonial : Revolutionary and Civil War
history, all in the East, as well as. beautiful
wooded and mountainous areas in the Great ,
Smoky-and Shenandoah regions. .
There are many kinds of national parks,
of varying appeal and attraction. But the out
standing features: of the. far-flung system are;
those reservations in which man finds himself
in closest touch with the primitive world of
Nature. For here he stands before the truth
and power that poets and philosophers have
tried to express throughout the ages. It is well
for all of us to,set out to see these most beauti.
ful of our possessions while we can. It is our
duty to see that they are kept in their natural
and primitive condition and not gridironed w ith
boulevards and cheapened to attract tourists
who have no real interest in the parks unless
they can speed through them in the daytime
and be amused at night, with radios, dancing
and vaudeville. They were set aside for those
who want to return to Nature uhdefiled and
uncommercialized. Saturday Evening Post.
