THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
Brought In County

to all Haywood farmers that tie
bank would finance the purchase
of any purebred animal for a year
without interest, and pay the haul
bill from Asheville to Haywood.
The crowd of 400 cheered at the
news, A banker from Marshall,
made a similar statement.
Glenn Boyd bought 2 heifers and
a bull; H. B. Milner bought 1 cow
and a bull; Fred Campbell bought
a bull; C. M. Moody a bull and Mrs.
Frank Davis a heifer.
The 40 animals sold brought a
total of $9,339.80, the 29 females
averaging $246.20 and the 11 bulls
Approximately 400 persons at
tended the sale, held at the Ashe
ville Live Stock yards. In the group
were many breeders of Hereford
and Aberdf en-Angus beef cattle, as
well as those who raise Shorthorns.
A number of Western North
Carolina bankers, business men
and agricultural leaders were also
in attendance. L. A. Richardson,
extension animal husbandry spe
cialist of the University of Ten
nessee, was among those present.
The sale was the flr?t fbr the
Shorthorn breed in Western North
Carolina in years; the first since
the beef cattle industry staged its
comeback in the mountain section
of this state.

he tried to sign up, and was
compelled to leave disappointed,
with 'the comfort that if the con
flict lasted long enough he would
yet have his chance.
Little boys peeped in the doors,
looking big eyed over elder broth
ers and friends who were old
enough to be "signed up."
There was one 20-year-old who
was married and the father of four
Jh&te were a few boys, who had
lived within the shadow of good
schools all their lives, who could
not sign their names.
As prospects for the great army
of the United States they showed
'what it will take to win the war,"
They were willing and eager to go.
More often was heard, "ys they
are going to let me register," than
"yes, I got to register,"

of every cow are among the first
essentials of good dairying.
Mr. Ruffner stressed the point
that with good cows, plenty of
proper feed and lots of elbow
(frease will make a success of any
dairy project. He concluded his
remarks by pointing out through
an illustration of a good and poor
management, that the best people
live on the best soil.
Haywood has one cow for every
5 people, which is about the na
tional average. The state average
is one cow for every 9 people.
F. R. Farnham, district county
agent, and dairying specialist of
State College, made a few brief
remarks, pointing out the necessity
of properly conserving the hay crop
this year by putting it under a roof.
"Hay exposed to weather looses a
gxeat percentage of food value,"
Mr., Farnham said he often used
Haywood as an illustration in
showing the value of co-ordination.
The business men, professional men,
and farmers have always stuck by
each other in Haywood, and that
is one reason the county is out
standing, he said. .
After the meal, and addresses,
the Rotarians and their guests,
visited Pet Dairy Products Com
pany,' and were served ice cream.

Alice, the oldest elephant in the New York Zoological Park in the Bronx,
was down on her side and could not get up. Her legs were not strong
enough to lift her 4,500 pounds. So the zoological authorities had to call
for a derrick to aid her. It looks like the kiddies will again be able to
feed Alice her share of peanuts. (Central Preit)
Number Of v
The current high rate of rejec
tions of selectees at the induction
station has been so high that the
government is explaining the rea
sons, it was learned from the local
draft board yesterday.
The subject has been disturbing
the public and the board members
pointed out that they felt there
should be some explanation at this
Prior to January 1, 1942, com
plete physical examinations were
given the selectees by local board
examining physicians. After a
few months of experience, those
physicians were passing men who
very closely met the army's requirements.
Rejections at the induction sta
tion at that time were almost en
tirely of men on the borderline
conditions, men who had contract
ed disease between the time of
their local examination and the
time of their delivery for induc
tion and men rejected as a result
of the chest X-rays which were
never a part of the local exam
ination. Under the regulations now in
force, the local examining physi
cians do not make a comprehen
sive examination. In fact, they
make only a casual "screening" ex
amination and are guided by a list
of defects, one part of which sets
forth non-remediable physical con
ditions which disqualify the se
lectee for all military service. The
second part sets forth those non
remediable physical conditions
which disqualify for general mili
tary service, but qualify for lim
The local examining physician
has no alternative but to follow
this list specifically. With these
limitations, the examining physi
cian can reject little more than the
Another reason for the large
number of rejections is that
local boards no longer have
the authority to disqualify reg
istrants who are below the
minimum literacy standards for
military service. Prior to Jan
uary 1, 1942, they had such
authority and did not send to the
induction station men who were
below such standards.
The local board has no choice
but to send the men to the induc
tion Centers, even though they
know at the time that they will
be returned, it was pointed out
by the local board.
Delivered To British
Iseland of Malta
Aerial reinforcements have been
delivered to the British Island of
Malta in the Mediterranean and
has already caused the enemy to
suffer "Considerable losses," it
was announced by the U. S. Navy
The planes were carried to Malta
by the United States aircraft ear
lier Wasp which made the deliver
ies without damage.
Malta, the mtst bombed spot
in the world, is a vital British
stronghold lying athwart Axis
supply lanes through the Medi
terranean from Italy to Libya.
New Ruling Will
For 2 Weeks Stay
The policy of granting furloughs
to inducted men upon recommen
dations made by their local broads
was discontinued on June 30( ac
cording to the local draft board.
Beginning yesterday every in
ducted man will be granted a four
teen day furlough at the induc
tion station unless he prefers not
to be furloughed.
The new procedure provides for
the transfer of men so furlough
ed to the enlisted reserve corps im
mediately following induction and
the issuance of orders recalling
them to active service at the end
of the fourteen day period.
The army will furnish transpor
tation, meals and lodging for such
reservists to and from the cities
and communities where their local
boards are located.
There will be no change in the
procedure of delivery of regis
trants to the induction station by
the local boards or for the return
of rejected men from the induc
tion station to the local boards.
Men furloughed under the new
plan will assemble at the spe
cified hour at the office of the
board and will be returned to
the reception center in body.
The chairman of each local board
will be mailed meal tickts and
transportation requests necessary
for the travel of each local board
group from the city in which the
local board is located to the desig
nated reception center, together
with copies of the orders for the
return to active service and any
other necessary instructions.
Many of the disadvantages of
the furlough system will be elim
inated n this new procedurei.
Every man who wishes to return
to his home will be given the op
portunity to do so without being
required ,to establish his yea
sons for returning.
They travel at the government
expense in local board groups un
der an appointed leader. Farewell
ceremonies may be arranged at
the time the men have been ac
cepted for military service and are
going into active duty. None will
be faced with the embarrassment
of returning home following the
ceremonies formerly given at the
The local draft ; board in view
of the new ruling announces that
there will be no ceremony of fare
well when the next call leaves the
first time, but will be held two
week after when they are actually
inducted into the service, follow
