Standing on the Parkway under
the shadow of towering ureen
Knob you can see the rich green
hardwood forests spreading south
ward below vou. disappearing into
the, haze in South Carolina. ,
The lush green carpet of rolling
hill is broken by the works of man
in the brown fields and in the
buildings of the Ecusta Manufac
turing Company near Brevard.
But these seem an integral part
of the whole scene with the forest
covered hills.
In the distance to the northeast
from this ledge at Wagon Road
Gap, you see the white cloud ris
ing slowly above the valley, and
you are surprised when someone
points out the white cloud is the
smoke from the factory at Can
ton. Bui this beauty is something you
have to experience personally. It
cannot be described in words ade-
nualelv. nor even in a fine color
photograph, because it is a perfect
composition of the sights and the
sounds and the feeling.

afternoon with Forest Ranger Cliff

Program Is
Big Factor
The income of the average Hay
wood farm family will exceed that
of last year, according to ottieiat
calculations just completed for the
first five months of 1949 by wayne
Corpening, county agent.
This increased Income for Hay
wood farmers is in part, the di
rect result of increased production
and quality production, which is
one of the goals of the Commun
ity Development Program inaugu
rated in the county last February.
A large number of farmers have
stepped up production in several
departments, with dairying and
poultry leading the list to date.
Haywood farmers are right nnv
planting their burley, and ever
effort is being made to get the
full acreage allotment planted this
year," Mr. Corpening said. Last
year Haywood had 300 more acre?
in the allotment than was planted,
and at an average of $1,000 per
acre, lost 1300,000, according to Mr.
The interest in construction of
grade A dairy barns has exceeded
the expectations of many leaders.
The goal of fifty dairies this year
will be exceeded by a large num
ber, it was pointed out. Already
31 have been completed, and about
25 others definitely planned.
Mr. Corpening pointed out that
the difference In price to the farm
ers on grade A milk soon paid for
their modern barns. As of today,
the price of grade A milk was $6.00
as against $2.85 for manufacture, or
grade C milk.
The $3.15 per hundred pounds
difference between the two grades
of milk is sufficient proof of the
importance of going to grade A
production," Mr. Corpening said.
Next to dairying, the poultry
field has shown the most rapid
growth, with more and more farm
ers entering the field all the time.
Mr. Corpening said that the in
come from poultry would be twice
the total of last year, which was
estimated at $300,000.
Beef cattle farmers are keeping
their heifers this year, which is a
"step in the right direction," Mr
Corpening said. "It is sound busi
ness practices, and this means
larger herds, and takes much of
the speculation out of the beef
Haywood has long, been noted
for fine beef cattle, and have buy
ers from all sections of the coun
try coming here to make purchas
This county is also gaining rap
idly in forestry, especially in tim
ber management, and the plantnr;
of white pine seedlings. The pro
gram has been underway several
years, but is stepping up to a taster
pace since the Community Devel
opement program started, Mr.
Corpening said.
Haywood's 3,100 farm families
had an estimated income from
agriculture along last year of five
million dollars.
At the present increase of pro
duction, Mr. Corpening said that
the figure could easily be increas
ed to $7,500,000, barring any un-
seasonal weather on crops.
"The members of the Extension
Service and the County Agents
office are well pleased with the
progress that has been made with
the Community Development Pro
gram during the past three and
a half months. Continued pro
