He re cently said: "1 know of no county that affords a better opportunity for dairv ing on u large scale than does Hay- woou. mis county nas everything from climate to grass to make dairy ing profitable, and it has already been proven that it can be done on a profi table basis. The local creamery is right now begging for cream and milk in order that they may fill their con tracted orders. What more could a county ask for?" W. I). Smith, county agent, will have charge of thy program, and stated that there will not be any long winded speeches, but everything would be to the point and short. Committees are working on the at tendance, and reports are that at least 100 or more will be present. In fact more than one hundred plates have already been reserved, a special price 1 of 25 cents has been placed on the plates, although a regular fifty cent meal will be served, but the Rotary Club is naying for the difference in the cost of the plates. It was said that no subscriptions or money would be raised at the meet ing, u ueing merely lor the purpose 01 bringing before the farmers and business men a clear idea of the pos sibilities ot this county and also of the present need for development of certain lines of agriculture.
