HELLO SPORT FANS! In order to promote more
interest in tennis in Haywood County, a tennis tournament
will be held on the 13, 14, 15 and 16th of August and is
being sponsored by St. John's School. This will be the first
tournament in a long time that has been held in Haywood
and it is believed that a large number of players will participate.'.-.
This event takes in the whole of the county, in
cluding Balsam, and it is likely that a number of people
from Canton and the several camps around Lake Juna
luska will participate.
Through the courtesy of St. John's School the tourna
ment will be held on their concrete court, which is recognized
to be one of the best cement courts in the state. Necessary
balls will be supplied by the sponsors for the tournament.
The event will be divided into two classes the boys
and girls junior amateur and men and women senior
amateur. Anyone under the age of 16 years will be
eligible to participate in the junior amateur and any one
overly will be eligible to participate in the senior ama
Semi-finals will be played, for both boys and girls, on
the 13th and 14th, with the finals on the 15th and 16th.
Games will start at 10 in the morning and continue until
12, then they will be continued at 2 in the afternoon in
order to give those people who have to work during the
day a chance to participate.
Although no admission charges will be made for
spectators, a registration fee of fifty cents will be
charged each participant. However this money will
be turned back into prizes for the junior amateur.
Anyone wishing to register for the tournament should
get in touch either with Bill Hannah or me. All regis
trations must be completed by the 14th of August.
PRIZES TO BE AWARDED
To the boy and girl winner of the junior amateur will
be given a tennis racquet also donated bjr St. John's School.

18 inches high and is made of beautiful Sun Ray metal,
the woman's cup is also 18 inches high and is silver.
These two cups are being donated by the sponsor.
If any one wishes to practice on St. John's court

under this system, the eastern
crowar saves the added cost of
doing his own hauling, which for
one or two animals woud be great
ly in excess to the amount Gwyn
pays to ship the stock in carload
lots. ; .
But as far as the State Highway
Commission is concerned, Lenoir
Gwyn works much more directly
for them than through the revolv
ing fund. Conferring with State
Prison Director Oscar Pitts a
little over a year ago, Lenoir Gwyn
convinced Pitts that Caledonia's
salvation was the introduction of
beef cattle. All feed could be
raised on the 6,000 acre farm and
the cattle would be thus furnished
with unlimited pasturage at little
So Prison Director Pitts gave
Gwyn a free hand to organize the
cattle business or tne prison ae
partment. In back and white the
experiment has been a great suc
cess. Latest figures for sales of
the Caledonia cattle from Novem
ber to March show that Gwyn
bought cattle paid a profit
of $19,118.66. Inventory of the
cattle taken this July showed that
the cattle on hand were valued at
$46,000 more than the number on
hand at the same time last year.
Gwyn bought 460 steers in West
ern North Carolina, grossing
443,130 pounds at a cost of $40,
853.48. When they, arrived at
Caledonia their average weight
was 962 pounds and cost: per
hundredweight $9.22. When these
same cattle which Gwyn had
bought were sold in March, they
brought $59,972.14, hence the
profit of more than $19,000. Fur
thermore they averag.d 1170.5
pounds and brought $11.16 per
hundredweight or an average gain
of 208.5 pounds per st er.
Perhaps this is why Lenoir
Gwyn with all native-born love for
the beautiful hills of Western
North Carolina predicts that
some day in the not too far dis
tant future Caledonia prison farm
will be the largest cattle range in
the South. There are some 700
head of cattle owned by the prison
department at Caledonia now, by
next winter, Gwyn says there will
be far in excess of 1500 cattle at
the prison farm.
But neither Gwyn nor prison
director Pitts wants the people of
North Carolina to think Caledonia's
cattle business will be competetive
with private cattle interests. Both
Gwyn and Pitts believe it is rather
a sensible utilization of available
lands and feed crops. Producing
cattle on the lands at Caledonia is
rounding out a logical farm pnv
gram closely knit with the grow
ing of vegetables and other such
products on the farm.
Neither the Highway Commis
sion nor the State Department of
Agriculture are entering the-reg
istered cattle business. Cattle at
Caledonia are more of the com
mercial breed than the pure bred.
When, as Lenoir Gwyn predicts,
Calendonia becomes the home of
one of the finest herds of grade
white faced Hereford cattle in the
South, the people of Western North
Carolina can feel proud that they
had a part in it.
For despite migration to the
flat, former tobacco and cotton
lands of Eastern North Carolina,
the cattle are still natives of the
western part of the state. The
cattle country of ' Western North
Carolina can take the credit for
supplying the cattle which turned
the worn out lands of fcastern
North Carolina into one more
finest in the South, another thing
all over the South
