shuttle train at work. At another
farm was evidence of great haste,
the lime being scattered mostly
within shovel-throw distance from
the pile. Uncle Abe, seem' he
would have to put his lime out

on hauling East ' Tennessee and
scattering it out in Haywood, this
county will go "radical" shore.
"Time Changes Everything"
"How long did it take us to
drive from Lenoir?" asked Uncle
Wade Frazier as he got out of the
car at Waynesville after we had
driven the 110 miles. "A little less
than three hours, safe driving,"
he was told.
"Well, that reminds me," replied
Uncle Wade, "I used to make it

miles, with a loaded wagon in half

attention to it. Hemmed in by the
railroad and highway, as it is,
I had never noticed it before. It
is now grown up with trees, briars,
and vines as though forgotten.
"Those graves were there fifty
years ago when I used to drive the
old road with wagon and team,"
"What if the dead lying there
could wake up , and see the big
busses and vans whizzing by now,"
"I guess they'de jist about pass
out again," he replied.

"Searrit the Groon"
"He scarrit the groon", (he
scratches the ground) said a
Scotchman of his neighbor who
followed shallow ploughing. That
could be said of many persons
in the various trades, professions
and pursuits of life; they do noth
ing thorough, merely scratch the
ground. And, as the Scotchman's
yields were doubtless meager, so
will be the returns from any work
of merely scratching the ground.
"Do you kill ducks when you
want to pick 'em to get the feath
ers?" we heard a woman ask a
few days ago.
Whereupon she was told that it
wouldn't do to kill her ducks every
time she wanted to pick them.
"Granny" Land was a simple,
faithful, trusting, plodding old
soul. I said as much of her when
she was living, carrying around
her little bunch of wild flowers or
bucket of berries. I certainly
should not withhold this brief
tribute now, that she is dead.
" It was a short, simple program,
yet impressive, that saw the thirty
draftees and volunteers off last
Friday. Our high school band
performed well-as they do at all
occasions. And' most of the draf
tees, though young, seemed to
"hold themselves together" well.

Calls For Aid
At Welfare Office
One Fourth Less
The county welfare office is re

the number of calls for assistance
this fall as compared to last year,
according to Mrs. Sam Queen,
county welfare superintendent.
Mrs. Queen attributes this to the
increase in employment opportu

The number given aid last month
still represents a problem, how
ever, from the number receiving
help. There were 129 families
where the bread winner was either
dead, unable to work, or had de
serted his dependents, given aid
during the past month.
These 129 families represented
285 children. A mother receives an
average of $5.80 for each depend
ent child in this county.
There were 496 persons receiving
old age security during the month,
being paid an average of $1.95 per
There were 28 blind persons in
the county who were helped dur
ing the month.
In addition to the foregoing six
patients from Haywood county in
the Western North Carolina San
atorium received aid.

Jiggling the Hook
Slows up Service
When you've finished a telephone call and wish to
speak to the operator before hanging up, move the
hook up and down slowly. This causes a light to blink
oo the switchboard, attracting the operator's attention
immediately. Rapid jiggUag of the hook, on the other
hand, may fail to flash the signal light Remember
you'll get quickest service by moving the hook slowly.
