Nc doubt Haywood housewives can ap
preciate the low cost of operating the County
Home much better than the average man.
Anv housewife knows that it is almost
next to impossible to maintain a family on a
dollar per day each basis. Yet that is the
record of the Havwood County Home. The
Haywood home's averaue cost is S30.67 per
person per month, which is about Slf per
month lower than the state average.
There is an average of 21 persons in the
home, and on that bafsis. the report was made
y state officials.
The county homo utilizes products of the
farm, and that accounts for the large cash
savings. Anvw.iv. r. a good record.
The Number One Crop

meeting wl-.'-re a pcc-iiid subject is to be dis
cussed. That was well illustrated here last week
when 250 attended the meeting where specia
lists discussed beef ca,ttlc.
Beef cattle has long been the number one
crop with Haywood farmers, as it brings in
more cash income than any other one item
on the farm. Then too, Haywood is especially
suited to the successful raising of beef cat
tle, in that the pasture land, plentiful water
supply, and the ideal growing season for
From all indications, it looks like beef

Miss Mary Margaret Smith
Fur the pas: thirteen years Miss Mary
-v'lr.rt'art-t Smith has been 'Haywood's Home
Demonstration agent. She came here shotly
after the loan vcars" of the early thirties,
and started a program among the women
of the county.
Miss Smith has led a program in the coun
ty that has truly help make this a better
place in which to live.
Last week some 2(K women of the county
gathered at the court house to pay tribute to
hei. and to acclaim her the "'outstanding.
Woman of the county" for the year.
She leaves Haywood to enter a broader
field. The results of her work here will be
a living tribute to her accomplishments for
the past fourteen years.
THE WAYNES VILLE MOUNTAINEER
Another Progressive Church
The Aliens Creek Baptist have definite
plans underway for construction of a .modern
church plant. This is not surprising news,
because the Aliens Creek church is the larg
est Baptist church in the county, outside of
Waynesville and Canton.
The report for last year shows a member
ship of 437: this is only less than three other
Haywood Baptist churches two in Canton,
and the First Baptist in Waynesville.
The Aliens Creek church led the entire
list of Haywood Baptist churches in gifts to
hospitals last year, by giving $1,000. The
church also gave $240 to the orphanage, and
had a total budget of almost 89,000.
The construction of the modern plant for
the Aliens Creek church will no doubt give
them an opportunity to continue to .grow,
and increase their good work.
There is a lot of good being done in church
es like Aliens Creek, and our faith in the pre
sent and future of this wcrld lies in the ac
complishments of groups like the Aliens

Keeping Fishermen Busy
Speed is the trend of the day, even in
catching a man without a fishing license, or
shooting game out of season.
The Wildlife patrol has modernized their
manner of apprehending violators of the game
laws, by adding planes and radio to supple
ment their hiking crews.
Back in the "good old days (?)" a game
warden's whereabouts were generally known,
and would-be-violators kept up with his every
move. That proceedure made it hard to catch
Now a pilot in a plane zooms across a
creek, and can spot fishermen over a wide
area, radio back his findings to a patrol car
or crew on the ground, and direct them to
the scene of violation.
Such action will make illegal fishermen
more observant, both on the ground and in
the air. In fact, it means he'll be a pretty
busy man watching his fishing, and looking
over both shoulders for game protectors as
well as listening for a buzzing plane overhead.

CHURCH ATTENDANCE GAINS
Editor the Mountaineer:
We pastors of the Hazelwood

with the progress which is being
made in our . "Church Loyalty
Campaign ". The movement is tak
ing on great momentum. We gained
in Sunday school attendance
in March, though it was only a
month of preparation for the move
ment which is to be'in with April.
The first two Sundays in March we
averaged 360 in Sunday school and
440 the last two Sundays, making
an average of 400 for the month.
Last Sunday some 25 people visited
and gave inspirations to most of
the homes in town; this will be
followed up this week with cards,
letters and personal visits. We will
expect at least 500 in our Sunday
schools next Sunday as a result of

is the fact that our Worship serv
ices, in all of our churches, are on
the increase. Then too, eight of the
Deacons from one of our churches

of our homes. We expect resutls
from this and other work which is
being done. We hoDe to make a
