Optimism Prevails As
Lake Season Opens

At Lake Sunday
GOV. J. M. BROUGHTON will

Under AAA Plan
The AAA office has announced
that crimson clover, vetch, and Aus
trian winter peas are available now
through the program, according to
Glenn A. Boyd, chairman.
Due to increased demand for !
farm production in the war effort,
now is the time for planning the
fall, winter, and next spring pas
tures, Mr. Boyd points out.
It has been hard for the farmer
to buy protein feed on the market
during the past year, and it has

There is a strong possibility that
county schools will not open until
August 30. Mr. Messer said.
The opening date had previously
been set for August second, but
with the shortage of labor in pick

Another factor entering into the
postponement of the opening has
been the lack of parts for repair

said yesterday that it would be al
most impossible to get the busses
in shape for use on August second.
