cussing the matter later, Mr. Boyd '
laugnea ana.saia the crop had been
worked only once.- Wet weather
prevented the first workouts, and
the beans grow in spite of it, and
had made good. He sold all his
beans at the cannery.
One of the newest, and perhaps
most modern cattle farms in Hay
wood, is the T. L. Gwyn farm, on
Highway 284. The barn is mod
ern in every detail, built accord
ing to specialists. The grounds
are fenced into lots, which per
mits segregation of cattle, , while
a stream of cold water runs through
each lot. The barn is equipped with
A new project just started on
the Gwyn farm includes 125 pul
lets. The -new 65-ton silo was com
pleted recently at a cost of $226.
The farm has 17 acres of crop land.
The 33 fat steers in the lot lined
up as if on parade as the tour
drove onto the property.
Of particular interest was the
loading platform, which fits into
one of the stall doors and permits
loading of cattle on a truck direct
from the barn. The cost was placed
at 75 cents, by Perry Trull, mana
ger of the farm. The platform was
built of scrap lumber.
The thoughts of 4,000 pounds of
ice cold watermelons at the Joe
Rose farm at Balsam hastened the
tour to the last scheduled stop.
"On top of the world" in the
haze of the Balsams, the group saw
prize Aberdeen-Angus cattle,
against a background of a modern
barn, and workmen pouring con
crete on a 70-ton silo.
Mr. Rose has already used a car
of lime on his 80-acre farm and
has another car on order, as he
is preparing to put 65 acres in
The barn is a show place, painted

Mr. Rose has 2 car loads of
steers which he is fattening for the
Baltimore Steer Show. This will
be the first time that any cattle
south af the Mason and Dixon line,
has been shown at the Baltimore
show, and the fact that these cat

lot, it was said.
Of special interest was the calf

This week I motored to Atlanta
to meet my husband who arrived
on the streamlined train that
leaves Miami every third day in
the afternoon and arrives in Atlan
ta the next morning at 7:12 Cen
tral time or 8:12 Atlanta time, or
9:12 Day Light Saving time. Af
ter breakfast, my husband wanted
to head straight for Balsam and
Wayneaville .' in the mountains,
where nature's air conditioning
system really works.

and in such a manner that the cows
cannot get to it.
Mr. Rose takes the position that
Haywood is the ideal place for
breeding cattle, and then have them

While the count was being made
of those from each township, Mr.
Lynn announced that Mr. Rose was
workiiiff 100 ner cent with 4-H
club boys in getting purebred stock
in all sections of the county. -
The AAA committeeman, D. J.
Boyd, Sam Ferguson and Thurman
Davis were presented to the crowd,
with the explanation that it was
through their committee that Hay
wood farmers received $63,000 in
soil conservation payments last
A number of guests were pre
sented, including A. L. Freedland
er, president of the Dayton Rubber
Manufacuring Company, who in
vited all to attend the formal open
ing of the new plant on the night
of the 23rd.
At the stroke of five, the 4,000
pounds of watermelons, which were
donated by Joe Rose, went under
the knife, and the "face washing"
began, and the fifth annual farm
tour came to a close.
Wherever you saw a group of
women, it was safe to bet that in
the m-nter was Miss Mary Margaret
Smith, home demonstration agent.
While the tour this year wasn't
designed so much for the women,
thev Hid eet in many good point
ers, and the association must have
been profitable judging Irom the
expressions on their faces during
the day. .
It had been a long day, but a most
afisfnrtnrv tour in every way.
Every one seemed pleased and well
repaid for the time spent.

Over at Jo Rose's farm last
week, I met up with the farm tour,
I don't know much about cattle,
especially Aberdeen-Angus the kind
Rose had, but I liked being with
the farmers and their families.
They are the backbone of Hay
wood county and I like the way
the editors of this paper favors and
fosters the farmers' interest where
ever it it is possible for him to do
so, for he realizes that what helps
rural residents helps everyone. I
am clH ta see the farmer really
being appreciated, for they have
had a touch row to hoe. Mr. Russ
has liad a lot to do with the better
farm program in Haywood county.

The log cabin home of the Roses'

under Mrs. Rose's magic flair for
color line. Most girls who marry
men from other parts of the coun
try forget about bringing their hus
bands down to the old home place,
but not Mrs. Rose. They have put
a lot of money in their farm and
home and it has helped this sec
tion of North Carolina. If more
Haywood county girls would fol
low Mrs. Rose's example more of
our land in these parts, would
blossom like a rose!
This insurance is offered bv tht
federal government through the
AAA proeram. The insurance
guarantees 75 per cent of normal
yield as set up under the agricul
tural conservation program.
Any person growing wheat in
1942 who is interested in insurance
on this crop is asked to call at
the county agent's office on or
before August the 30th. No ap
plication for insurance will be
taken afer that date.
This type of insurance does not
require cash outlay since a wheat
note plan has been developed for
paying this insurance. That is to
say the coat of the insurance can
be deducted from the 1942 larm
The cost of the wheat insurance
will be for the most part for farm
era of this county, one-half bushel
of wheat per acre. This depends
upon the market value-of wheat
on July 25, 1942.
