Of special interest to this section is the
announcement by the State Department of
Conservation of the stream survey being
made which will develop a management plan
for each watershecWn the state.
It has been .pointed out that one of the
big problems which has faced the staff of
the fishery division has been the proper
distribution of fish from thCstate hatcheries.
Too often fish have been placed in waters
unsuited to them.
Brook trout have been stocked in waters
where they once thrived, but where illy
planned agriculture erosion and abuse have
modified the original streams so that brook
trout can no longer live and produce. Rain
bow trout and brown trout have been wasted
in waters which become too warm or are
otherwise unsuited for trout. At a series of
35 stations and sub-stations in the state the
data is being gathered. "
We appreciate such a step in this county
as the fishing, thanks to the State Conser
vation Depaitment, is steadily being im

What Price Eggs
One of the first pinches of the present
crisis felt in this community was the sky
rocketing of the price of eggs. When one
has an egg for breakfast these days he can
justly have the sensation of eating money,
for when the fruit of the hen goes beyond
forty cents per dozen, it makes the regular
old fashioned breakfast, which is still cur
rent in a lot of families, come mighty high.
Nobody knows how long this war is going
to last or how far inflation will carry us on
its uncertain wings, but we might as well
get it into our heads that anything we can
grow or raise on our own premises is money
in our pockets, and maybe enough food for
This much can be said for the hen, when
she lays an egg, it is now truly a gold nugget.
Congratulations are in order to the leaders
of Haywood county for the splendid home
arts - exhibition and livestock show which
they staged last Friday. The day represent
ed hard and zealous work on the part of the
citizens as a whole as well as the civic leaders
who took a forehand in planning it. A good
part of the success of the event is due, we
believe, to the effort of The Waynesville
Mountaineer in publicizing the show, and we
hand the publishers a laurel for their excel
lent work in that piece of community ser
vice. The Transylvania Times.
v We noticed recently agricultural education
is to be expanded in North Carolina through
the schools with the addition of 67 hew voca
tional agricultural departments.
This brings the total in the 69 counties
in the state having such departments up to
489, according to Roy II. Thomas, state su
pervisor of vocational agriculture of the
state department of public instruction.
We congratulate these 67 schools for the
addition of these classes. We know here in
Haywood County the fruits of such work.
We know what it has done for agricultural
promotion and development in this section.
We have evidence of what the boys are learn
ing in their class room and on their projects
being put into practice on our farms.
We have been exceptionally fortunate in
this county in the high type of the teachers
of these classes, who haveput forth' every
effort to aid the boys not only at home but
on the farms.
Will You Have One?
We haven't tried one yet, but we see
where the new "Vitamin B sandwich' is
highly recommended to help one guard
against deficiency illnesses. The sandwich
is the result of research by the Universities
of .Wisconsin and Chicago, and was made
public last week. V .'.
It consists of peanut butter mixed with
about 20 per cent dried brewer's yeast spread
between two slices of so-called "peeled wheat
bread", which is manufactured under ; a
process that removes only 2 per cent of
the whole grain. !
The sandwich is said' to contain all the
members of : a "thriving B-complex family"
which at ; present numbers eleven sub-vita
mins that protect against pellagra, nerve
inflammations and other ailments. The sand
wiches have been given a try-out" for the
past five months in the office of the Reader's
Digest. . ;'

Home And Regular
More regular and tranquil American fam
ily dining room habits would strengthen
parent-child 'relationships in this country,
so the Ladies Home Journal editors believe.
They made this the subject of an extensive
editorial theme, starting with the Septem
ber issue of the magazine. '
The editors claim that the crying need of
' today's children is a sense of family security. -In
the dining room the place where the re
current ritual of good food and family as
sociation deepens family bonds, here the
thild can feel himself a part of the .family
group. Here the fundamentals of good man
ners can be taught. ,
Too frequently in recent years, it is point
ed out, the dining room has fallen into disuse
In favor of snack-and-run eating in the kit
chen or careless, quick crowded habits of the
breakfast nook. The editors have observed
such habits from coast to coast in articles
during the past two years on "How America
"In the present state of world emergency,"--'
says Beatrice Blackmar Gould, co-editor,
"the first thought of each American family
is to strengthen its own family unity and
to draw closer together. , No better means
for these can be provided than to bring the
family together regularly and pleasantly each
day with the happy associations and conver
sations of the dining room.
Paperand the Defense
Steel plants use paper for the purpose of inter
leaving armor plate and cold rolled steel to the
extent of some 60,000 tons (or 3,000 carloads per
year. One point of embarkation for our t'roop
movements required within a very short period
of time 1,000,000 pounds of waterproofed kxaft
paper to be shipped immediately for the purpose
of wrapping supplies. It might be interesting to
also give at this time certain pertinent figures
with regard to paper requirements under the de
fense program which we believe will give you a
better idea as to the collosal size of this program.
Let us itemize for you certain of these requirements,
as follows: .
Today, the requirement has been for:
7,500 tons (or 375 carloads) of mimeograph
. eamp. ... -
2,500 tons (or 125 carloads) of typewriter
2,000,000 rolls" of toilet paper for etuh army
; ,. paper
50,0.00,000 file folders. ,j
' 3,750,000 sheets of carbon paper.
1,000,000 paper milk bottles per day (at the
present time) to each army eanp.
30,000,000 Defense Stamp albums.
100-000,000 pounds of super book paper and '
100,000 pounds of cover paper for soldiers hand
books. This amount of hand books.
if stacked, would be sixteen times as
high as the Washington Monument.
4,000,000 sheets of poster paper for the Minute
Men" National Defense Posters.
11,000 tons (or 550 carloads) of target paper.
14,000 pounds of asbestos paper for each
cruiser manufactured, of which 64 are
now being built.
11,000 tons per month (or 650 carloads) of
board for, shell containers. -'
1,250,000,000 envelopes will be required this year
for the government.
30,000 pounds (or 1 carload) of blue print
paper for each battleship constructed.
These figures, enormous as they may seem, give
you some idea as to the tremendous demand being
made upon the paper industry under our national
defense program. Bear in mind, however, that this
is only a portion of the paper, as the greater amount
of paper required for the program is going direct
to contractors under the national defense program.
In fact, it has been estimated that it requires 1
000,000 tons of paper for each $5,000,000,000 of

are asking people to save their
stamps . Mrs. L. M. Killian has
been appointed local chairman of
this work ... we understand that
she plans to place boxes in public
buildings . . where people may
drop their used stamps . . . she is
begging you to save them both at
home and in business . . . Did you
ever hear of a cheaper way to help
in a great cause ? . . , so remember,
before you throw that envelope into
the wastebasket, to tear off the
corner with the stamp. ... .
We recall that when we were
young, chestnut hunting was one
of the major sports . . . and often
we have felt a nostalgia for those
happy autumn days . . . before the
great blight stripped! the chest
nut trees of life and left them
standing like start sentinels in
the woods and fields ; . . the power
of nature defying man, sa to speak
... showing that in her ruthless
moments what destruction she can
bring ... . . we have regretted that
the rising generation has known
nothing of the thrill of climbing
a chestnut tree ... of hearing the
nuts fall . . . and watching: with all
eyes in every direction to see where
to- hunt them -.-then the fun of
seeing who in the party could find
the lion's share . . then the mem
ory of those prickly burs comes to
mind . . . now we are told by several
persons in the community that from
some of the stumps new branches
are growing . and that in certain
spots one can enjoy chestnut
hunting . . . so maybe the children
coming on will know on a small
scale this joy. . V.,
We were tremendously interested
in the answers to the "Voice of the
People" last week ... and like
wise surprised in keen interest
most of those asked, manifested in
their ' answers (one person felt
disinclined to talk) . . .we were
startled at Judge Frank Smathers'
answer . . , for his great wisdom
and how learned his is in such a
versatile manner . . . we thought
he would choose all three books of
a very deep nature . . . and then
when we began to ponder . . . it
came to us how dumb we were . . .
what books could better direct one
how to live on a desert island than
Robinson Cruso. . . . . :
We recently everheajd a group
of boys and men . . . giving the
lowdown on certain faults of girls
. . . they had a pretty lengthy list
before they finished . . . among
the habits were . . . yanking up
stockings in public . . . pulling up
garters . . . crooked stocking seams
. . . repainting faces at any time
or place ... the eternal habit of
adjusting shoulder straps (they
might be out of sight . . . but you
were reminded of them) . . . and
you'll have to admit they are all
legitimate complaints . . . and no
age limit to the guilty ones , . .
but like most women we began to
check for' masculine failings . .
and we believe that if they balanced
off, the scores would be about equal
. . , now take this habit the boys
have of pulling out a comb and
operating on their sleek pompa
dours ... at any time the urge
comes over them . . . the present
style of baggy pants calls for a
lot of hitching up ... then this
habit of waiting on the girls .

SPREADING government orders
for defense and lease-lend supplies
among America's small producing
concerns is an emergency policy
just at present. It's more conven
ient to make contracts with the
comparatively few whaling big
companies than with the multitude
of pewees. Consequently Uncle Sam
started out to deal with the mon
sters ignoring the midgets.
Shortly it became apparent that
the giants huge as they were,
weren't numerous enough to pro
duce the desired rate.
A thorough size-up of the situ
ation, Conducted by . Commerce
Secretary Jesse Jones, revealed that
the little fellows, combined could
produce more than the small group
of big ones, if only they could get
contracts. By including whales and
minnows alike, it was evident that
the government could considerably
more than double national indus
try's total output.
Accordingly, suggested Director
William S. Knudsen's Office of Pro
duction Management. Let's hand

companies, and then let each of
