Aggressive Young Men
The election of James Kilpatrick as presi
dent of the Chamber of Commerce did not
fume as any surprise to those who have been
associated with him for the past several
He has served as vice president of the or
ganization, and has taken an active part in
the civic affairs of the community. He is
the representative from here on the Western
Carolina Associated Communities, and an
officer in the Rotary Club. He has held many
places of responsibility since coming to Way
nesville. and we predict for the Chamber of
Comnierce another year of growth, and con
structive work for the community under the
leadership of Mr. Kilpatrick.
It is gratifying to also know that the of
fice of the organization will be under the sup
ervision of Stanley Henry, who launches out
orj "hi second year as secretary of the group.
Botn of the gentlemen are young, aggres
sive, yet have enough conservative traits to
keep the ship of the Chamber of Commerce
on an even keel. ' "
A Worthy Project
There is seldom a month which passes that
some drive for funds is not being made.
Citizens sometimes state that these various
money-raising campaigns are "Driving" them
crazy. Most of the drives merit our whole
hearted support and are greatly helping man
kind. We are aware of the heavy demands
being made on individuals which sometimes
seem too great to donate to all of them.
Your judgment must decide on how much
you can donate and to which drives vou be
lieve most worthy.
There is one project, not drive, which we
wish to mention this week and we believe
you'll WANT to give generously to see it
materialized. This project is the building j
of a new 4-H Camp at Wavnesville. The :
camp is to be located at the State Experiment
Station and is to serve every county in the
western district. Each county is to have its
own cabin which will be used by the 4-H
members each summer. When the cabin is
completed any organization or group from
the county who desires may use the cabin
lor meetings or camping.
Madison County's part in the project is
S800.00. If this money can be raised, the
cabin can be built and used this summer.
On the grounds will be a dining hall, recre
ation hall and swimming pooll In past years,
the camp has been located at Swannanoa,
but the property there has been purchased
bv the Government.
"The 4-Hers are enthusiastic over the oAiTtlTZ
pects of having their own cabin like other i location of Park-to-Park highway,

There's Money In Poultry
The poultry industry has grown by leaps
and bounds in North Carolina, yet thousands
of dollars in eggs and chickens are still ship
ped into the state, according to government
Interest in poultry here in Haywood is
again on the increase, and indications are
that several farmers will give the matter
serious study during the next few weeks.
The fact that there is always a constant
market for eggs and chickens, is in itself,
proof that under proper management, the
pGultryman can always find a profitable mar
ket for his products.
Poultry, like everything else, demands
cartful business management, and thorough
thought and study before it is undertaken.
Since this area lends itself to the profitable
raising of poultry, there is every reason to
believe that ere long this important, and
profitable field will be opened up here.

THE JOHNSON FAMILY . . .
Everybody around Raleigh is ask

Charles Johnson, former State
Treasurer, has been expected to
take. Last summer and fall the talk
was that he was considering three
or four positions. The Bank of
Charlotte, it fs understood, held a
place open for him several months,
and then finally took the man who
handled his publicity in his bid for
governor. For weeks now. news
papermen have been awaiting the
announcement of "that job," but
so far nothing has materialized.
As for Cousin Robert Grady, the
feeling here is that his days with
the Utilities Commission are num
bered, definitely. Neither of these
members of the Johnson family
