NATIONAL CDITORIAI ASSOCIATION TUESDAY, Jl'LY 1948 Working Together One of the finest examples l co-operation we have seen in a lout; time, was the volun teering of nine orchardmen of their spray ing equipment and crews, without charge, to Waynesville and Hazelwood. in order to get 80,000 'gallons of 2 per cent POT sprayed over the entire area. The orchardmen are interested in the com munity to the point that thev are divine their time, paying their assistants, ami loaning thir expensive equipment for thus project. Had it not been for their generous offer, it is doubtful whether the spravmg could have been undertaken. In one North Carolina town, a fee of S 1 00 per hour was paid an aviator to spray the area from the air. Another North Carolina town contracted with a private concern for a fabulous amount to spray their city. Still another town in this state is paying 25 cents per gallon for spray, iccording to their public hea'.'h officer, whereas, the cost of the matei lal used here will be about vr.e cent per gallon. Everyone has gone into this program for the benefit of all concerned. a'id no one is to make one red cent in facr. it's op a uiving basis. The spraying is being done as a precau tionary measure, and in an eff ort to eliminate tlies and other disease-carrying insects. Such a program will no doubt prnve'benc l.cial to all the community, and certainly it will prove the value of co-operation between tne.town and rural people. New Geography Books "fbe State Board of Ed ucation has bought i.ew geography books for the elementary hools. The new books replace those in i se. since 1932. As this newspaper 'ins said me and time again, we do not know just '..hen the books used this past term were ritten, but the text sounds as if it were pre-l-arMaiM 905. -trust' the; new books are factual, and kavq ma$5;thaijare distinct, and can be read ith ease. The books the students have been using met neither of these qualifications. Wednesday morning Haywood farmers will be given the opportunity of seeing how to do things the practical way, and first hand, when the field day program gets underway at the Jack McCracken farm near Bethel. The all-day program, arranged for both farm men and women, will be a series of practical demonstrations, from how to re seed a pasture, to sanding floors and paint ing walls. Heretofore, the farmers have been taken places and shown the results, which is tine, but this year the leaders felt that seeing ac tual operation or application would be more practical. Take for instance the pasture project, there will be tractors. Jeeps and even teams of horses on hand to show how to operate each unit. Then there will be a crew to build a mIu. and even putting up a barb wire fence. The women will see how to go about get ting the interior of tne house improved, as manufacturers will be on hand doing a job such as sanding, painting and papering. In thinking of the practical way to do things, we are reminded of the answer one farmer is supposed to have given, when asked why he did not do a better job of farming., as fie said: "1 know more about good fann ing now than I have time to do." Perhaps there, are a lot of people who share t"is farmers sentiments. And that is one reason for the field day Wednesday. It will afford an opportunity to see how it is supposed to be done, and the quickest and most economical way of getting the job done. No doubt there will be hundreds of Hay wood farmers and farm women to attend in order to learn the better methods. SMtlL Ab bWttl- BUI WALWJ oANIs.

'Talent Money' Pays Well The Methodists of Cl;de have found a clev er and effective way to raise money for their new church building. Last April the pastor gave out to 81 people the sum of two dollars each, and told them to invest the money, re-invest it as many times as they could be fore July, and bring the profits of the two dollars to the building fund. The profits averaged live-fold on what was tin ned in, and there remains some additional workers to be heard from. This speaks well for both the program and the church, and proves again, that people prefer to work at a project, rather than just donate. V trust that it will not be long before the church has raised the money and completed their new church. With the spirit that pre vails among them now, we have every reason to believe they will attain their goal. 10 YRARS AGO 5 YEARS AGO C. F. Kirkpatrick gives luncheon in honor of Mrs. George A.
