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.

The demand has been greater than expectations, and no more extras can bp printed. Copies will be mailed in the county for ten rents, or mailed out of the county for 15 rents, as long as the limited supply lasts. Community Development 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. Corpening. 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 industry." 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 es. 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.
