in the state doing a better job. I
have not learned of it as yet. We
have taken the liberty of passing
on to other counties the ideas
developed in Haywood county and
I shall look forward with interest
to future reports and results in
that county,'' is an excerpt from
a recent letter from I. 0. Schaub,
director of the state co-operative
extension work, to J. C. Lynn,
"We plan to send sample copies
of your posters to other counties
in that it may be worth something
to them in the form'of a sugges
tion for their own problems. Nat
urally, in doing this Haywood coun
ty will not lose anything through
the publicity," is taken from a let
ter from J. F. Griswell, extension
leader Land-Use planning, to the
"In my opinion you have one of the
best organizations in the state and
the interest and enthusiasm shown
by the members of your council,
I do not believe will be surpassed in
any county. You are all to be con
gratulated for the fine work which
has been done and I am sure that
future reports will show that this
good Work is being continued in
a very fine way," is in part a
letter received by J. C. Lynn, coun
ty agent from F, S. Sloan, district
J. S. Criswell was so much im
pressed with publicity given the
program in Haywood county, that
he ordered copies of the poster
designed and printed by The Moun
taineer and the double page ad
sponsored by the merchants which
was carried in this paper sent to
other counties to be used as a
pattern for them to follow.
The National Defense program
was first launched on March the
11th, when the officers were elect
ed and the organization plans
J. C. Lynn is president of the
county council; W. H. F. Millar,
vice president; and Mrs. Henry
Francis secretary and treasurer.
J. E, Barr is head of the publicity
committee and much of the credit
of the well laid plans should be
given to him, according to the
other members of the council.
Through the various features of
promotion which will arouse the
citizens of the county to the im
portance of planting and "living
at home" from their gardens dur
ing the coming year, more vegeta
ble plots are being planted with
larger acreages than ever before in
In the interest of stimulating
the urgency of the national defense
program, Mr. Barr has distribut
ed 250 posters throughout the
county, the merit of which has al
ready been referred to in the
excerpts from the letters.
Through the schools of the coun
ty 6,000 garden plans have been
distributed through the students
in the schools, which they in turn
took to their parents. In this
material were directions for veg
etable gardens for families of five
persons, outlining daily food
charts. They also contained va
riations of planting and best meth
ods of garden fertilization.
There have been: mailed from
the county farm agents' office
2,600 cards containing better food
and feed charts, to the rural fam
ilies of the county. If a family
fails to return the first card to
the county agents' office according
to instructions, they will be mailed
a red card asking why they have
failed to comply with the request,
pointing out their responsibility
at this critical time.
Each family in the county that
takes an active part in the Na
tional Defense program and
through the outlined instructions
actually produce 75 per cent of
their food and feed needs will be
given : a certificate signed by the
Governor, director of extension
work of the state, and the supervi
sor of vocational agriculture.
Each landlord Where the ten
ants can qualify as to the produc
tion of this stated per cent of food
and feed production will be given
an additional certificate.
Miss Mary Margaret Smith,
county home demonstration agent,
is Stressing the preservation of
foods and is urging that not only
the rural women, but those resid
ing in towns take part in this fea
ture, as the usual summer garden
can supply not only immediate
needs, but the surplus offers can
The ground work of the na
tional defense program has been
well laid in Haywood county and
whether or not the results equal
the initial start depends upon the
co-operation of the people. The
county farm agents and the mem
bers of the county council are
willing and ready to lend every
possible assistance in carrying out

tess during the summer.
President Prevost said that in the
past, separate campaigns had been
made soliciting funds for many
of these events, and that this year
one canvass and one soliticitation
would be made in order to raise the
$4,200 budget necessary to carry
on this general program.
"We have found that those who
are soliticted for every community
wide event, prefer the one solici
tation plan. We have been encour
aged in this program by a number
of leading contributors saying
they would rather give to a community-wide
program than have so
many solicitations come up dur
ing the course of the year,"
"The plan is similar to that
which many large cities use in
their community chest drives, In
which all charity organizations
share from the gross proceeds
without having to stage separate
campaigns. This means less trou
ble to the contributor, and certain
ly saves time with those having to
make the drives."
Complete details of the budget
under which the program will be
carried out, will be given next week.
