Although it has only boon a little
over a year since I was your guest,
it seem' like an eterri'v ... so verv
much has happened since then. We
are living in a different wcm Id and
not quite all of it is good.
But now I am preparing to come
back for another visit and I am so
impatient for the time to pas; so
lhat I can again enjoy your b; mii
ful mountains. You may Lak this
for flattery but it is the triiili . . .
somehow, I always enjoy myself
more in Wayncsviile th in any other
place I spend my vacation. Perhaps
that is due, in some measure, to

so filmy and gossamer-like that
they seem more suitable for fairy

I am so in hopes "that I can make

It was almost ten years ago, when Farmers Exchange started in a small
way on a program destined to serve farmers in this area with merchandise
and at the same tme provide a ready cash market for the farmer's produce.
Needless to say, the firm has grown, and grown. During the past three
years that the founder, C. D. Ketner, has been in the armed forces, the firm
has steadily grown under the supervision of W. D. Ketner. Due to the
foresight of the management, Haywood produce has become to be recog
nized on all markets as the symbol of quality.
Today, the founder, together with the manager for the past three years,
have entered into a partnership, with plans for carrying on the business (m
a larger scale than ever before. New units for handling produce quicker
and more economically will be installed shortly. Other expansions will be
made as soon as practical.
