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
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 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
-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
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.

'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.
