Farmers And Business Men
To Meet on Friday Night To
Hear Farm Program Discussed
Big Dairying Program Is Being
Launched In County, State
Specialist To Be Principal
Speaker
TO SPEAK HERE FRIDAY
Haywood fanners and business
men are to meet at 7:.i0 Friday even
ing; in the dining room of the First
Methodist church to hear a thorough
discussion and detailed plans for a
program that is being launched for
the increase of dairying in the county.
The meeting is being sponsored by
the Wavnesville Rotary Club.
Another important and vital sub
ject will be modern means of market
ing, which will be discussed by Mr. A.
C. .Jackson, of the TV A and Mr. J. E.
Barr, district manager of the coope
rative canneries in this section.
Mr. F. R. tarnham, dairy specialist
of State College Extension Service
will be the principal speaker on the
dairy program, and there is a possi
bility that F. H. Jeter, of the same
department, will be among those pres.
cm at the meeting.
Mr. Farnham has been in the county
some weeks making a thorough studv
of the conditions here, and is interest
ed in bringing into this county some
of the pure-bred cattle that are avail
ble in the drought stricken areas and
which can be bought at a greatly re
duced price at this particular time.
He has outlined on several occasions
why Haywood farmers need to give
more attention to dairying. 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.

family lived. Mr. Sisk was a tenant
on the farm. The lamily was asleep
and knew nothing of the lire until
the barn root was falling m. The
