TUESDAY. MARCH 8. 1949
Senator J. M. Broughton
Uealh dealt a stunninjiblow to this state
una nation Sunday, by taking Senator J. M.
Brouf.hton. while just at the threshold of
becoming a national liure in the Senate.
Senator Broughton liail served his state as
uuvernor. as well as in many other distin
guished capacities. He assumed the office of
Senator this past January, and on Friday
had presided for l!4 hours over the Senate.
A courtesy seldom ever extended a freshman
Senator Brou.nhtons deatli will be keenly
telt throughout the state, but nowhere any
more than in Western North Carolina. He
was one of the few men in Raleigh who had
consistently realized that the North Carolina
state line was not the French Broad river,
but more than 100 miles westward.
Senator Broughton knew Western North
Carolina, and elVnrlv saw its needs as few
other official. He was interested in the de
velopment of this area, and his death is a
severe blow to the program adopted here ten
davs ao hv the N. C. Park Commission in
seeking an additional five millions for Park
way construction. Senator Broughton was
to be a key I'-iire in taking the matter to
This would be a much better nation if we
had more men as devout, and devoted to
their fellowman and state as Senator Broughton.
Ls Wine And Beer Going Out?
The Ministerial Association have in hand,
petitions bearing the signatures of several
hundred Haywood voters, who have asked
'hat an election be called to abolish the sale
ot wine and beer in Haywood.
The sponsors of the petitions have withheld
action, pending formal outcome of the propos
ed slate-wide referendum on liquor. As soon
cS thev are assured there will be no state
wide referendum, the ministers plan to ask
that an election be called in Haywood.
Just what the citizens of the county want
to do about the matter will be determined by
the voters in the proposed election. The
wishes of the majority will be final.
There has been a growing sentiment
against wine and beer in the state, and so far.
the great majority of the counties voting on
the measure have overwhelmingly ousted
them from their county. Some counties voted
as high as 14 to 1 against the sale of wine and
Alreadv fruits of the community develop
ment program can be- .seen the first project
to get started is a campaign to establish fifty
grade A dairies in the county.
On first thought trwat would seem like a
large undertaking, bur. when one has the
facts, it will mean converting one out of every
live dairies now producing manufacture
grade milk. Changing ov.tr 20 per cent of the
farmers to modern methods should not be
Oi.e big thing in favor of the success of the
program is that the same cows as now owned
can produce grade A milk it is just the
conditions under which it is' produced. So no
additional herds will be needed. Just a mod.
ernization program of barns .and milk sheds.
The county agent, extension, forces, and the
dairv commission, which is headed by Frank
M. Davis, are making the jilao so simple,
easy, and easy to pay for, that it is hard to
believe that any trouble at aJl will be exper
ienced in getting the quota of fifty modern
The big factor favoring the change from
"shade tree" and a grade A, is the extra
revenue. A cow producing manufacture milk
eats just the same quantity of food as if she
were producing grade A milk. The labor in
volved is the same, with perhaps a little more
care m the grade A set-up. but the difference
in the price of the product offsets everything
else. Manufacture milk is bringing $3.10 per
hundred, while grade A sells for $6.40 per
This is proof enough that modernizing will
be a cood investment a profitable one right
from the start.

A Big Improvement A Good ?
One of the best investments made on Main
Street in a long time, has been the expendi
ture of the Town of Waynesville and the
Chamber of Commerce in remodeling a part
"Til the City Hall building.
The construction of two offices on Main
Street is an asset to the looks of the town, as
well as the efficiency of operating the affairs
ot the Town and Chamber of Commerce.
The huildmu s'ill has some valuable fool
age on Mam Street, and from contractors not
too much would be required to make store
rooms or offices with the remainder of the
space. Such a venture would be a revenue
producing proposition, as well as adding even
further to the looks of the building and that
end of town in general. Rental from such
space would amount to a tidy sum before too
Vwi a period.
Perhaps the city fathers will continue
their remodeling project to carry such a plan

A Better Forestry Program
It is encouraging to note that a record
breaking number of tree seedlings have been
ordered for planting this year in both the
state and county. The report comes from R.
W. Craeber. in charge of forestry.
Last week some 25,000 seedlings were re
ceived here for 4-H Club boys. The seedlings
were donated by the Champion Paper and
Tins is a fine project, and one that will
