This Is An Era Of Church Building
When some energetic person starts to write
a liiMurv ul Haywood county fifty years from
now. we would not be surprised to learn that
they termed 1H4!I as "An Era Of Church
In almost every section of the county there
is a church building program either under
way, or definite plans made to bepn soon.
It is not jus: the churches in town, but the
rural churches are also takinu a bit; part, and
doing a wonderful job.
Last week the members of the Canton
First Baptist let a contract for an educational
building, for $117,(HHl. The Spring Hill Baptist
plan a $40.(KiO church: The Crabtree Method
ist plan a church that will cost about $20,000,
while Iron Duff churches have been renovat
ed and modernized at a considerable cost.
Aliens Creek Bnpftsts have moved to tlx?
building stafje and plan a modern structure,
while the Waynesvillc Baptist have a pro
cram fi.tr a new auditorium scheduled to start
within a week or so. This project, it is estimat
ed, will cost over . 100.000.
And the list could uo on and on. The Clyde
.Methodist just recently moved into their
modern church, and the Lake Junaluska
Methodist Assembly have an expansion pro
gram that is ybing to mean much to the work
of the Church in the entire South.
Church progress in Ha wood is certainly
far ahead of the average over the nation. Such
an attainment should be the source of pride
for every citizen of the countv. '
A Ringing Tribute
Many a time we have watched the huge
locomotives of the Southern Railwaypull long
freight trains over the mountains of Western
North Carolina. Every time we have been
impressed with the power generated by the
giant s of the rails.
So powerful, and with such ease do they
glide along the rails, that never have we given
thought to one of these giants being claim
ed bv the death caused by old age.
An interesting article in '"Ties" the official
monthly publication of the Southern reveals
that these giants do de. The truth of the mat
ter is, that death Is overtaking a large number
of these giants right now, as diesels are re
placing them on the Southern's 8,000 miles of
Down near Spartanburg is the "graveyard''
for these locomotives, where an average of
nine a week are cut down into scrap iron and
steel, and sold for junk to steel mills.
Very few parts of the locomotives are sal
vaged. Some of the valves are kept, but al
most everything else is classified as scrap
that is with the exception of one thing. All
the bells from the locomotives are carefully
taken from the engines when they first get
to the "graveyard."
The mellow-toned bells are tagged "Handle
with Care." Later the bells are polished, and
sent to an engraver who inscribes: "Gift Of
the Southern Railway System," nd then pre
sented to some deserving bell-less church
along the railway.
Such a gesture on the part of the Southern
will keep alive a familiar and beautiful sound
that the horn of a diesel will never attain.

Looking Back Over The Years
By EULA NIXON GREE.Y
TIm; Basis Of The Program
June fifth looms being a bi day at Lake
Junaluska this year.
The annual Haywood County Day program
will usher in the opening of the season at the
Assembly, with Rev. Clay Madison, former
pastor here, as the platform speaker. All
Methodist churches of the county are expect
ed to participate in the program on that oc
casion. Then starting at two o'clock in the after
noon, a religious-musical' program will be
staged, with the 26 organized communities of
the county taking part. This program will be
a phase of the -religious side of the community
This newspaper thinks well of such a county-wide
program along religious lines. This is
getting down to the fundamental of coopera
tion, and learning to live together after all
that is the basis of the program.
A Stimulant For Dairying
Another example of the importance of the
State Test Farm to the Mountain area will be
demonstrated next Wednesday when some
500 farmers from many counties gather for
the dairy and feed field day.
An interesting program has been arranged,
highlighting some of the state's leading agri
cultural specialists in the dairy field
Howard Clapp, and his co-workers at the
farm have done a lot of work in planning, and
preparing for the occasion. They have charts
showing results of feeding, breeding, and pro
duction. All of this will be of valuable inter
est to the dairymen and those who plan to en
ter the dairy business.
At the rate grade "A" dairies are being
built in Haywood, this is destined to become
a center of dairy activity of the state.
The State Test Farm with the constant re
searckprag rani .going on fight her? among us,
is a vita) factor in encouraging and prbmoting
the increased dairy program.
No doubt there will be many a Haywood
farmer attending the event on Wednesday,
gathering facts which he will take home and
put into practice.
