Knight of Asheville said $50,000 would repair the flood dam age to Haywood's roads and bridges as the county s entire stale Highway work force of 100 men la bored today to complete the Job of clearing debris-blocked roads. The major bridge casualties in cluded the vest span of Me three spaft roricrcfr trtdge'We5Tne Eat Fork of the Pigeon near Woodrow. Mr. Knight said this span would probably have to be completely re placed, at a cost of several thous and dollars. Meanwhile, the portions of High way 276 between Woodrow and Brevard had been cleared suffi ciently by Saturday afternoon to permit the passage of one-way traffic. The major problem, he added, was getting the big road machinery to do the job. Workers cleared the road with pick and shovel suf ficiently to let the bulldozers and tractors to get through to finish the job. Temporary spans were being built as I he work force went for ward, starling at Little East Fork where the wooden bridge to the Boy Scout Camp had been washed out Among other timber structures washed awav were bridges over Crawford's Creek and Pisgah. and the steel-reinforced span over ine Pigeon between Lake Junaluska and Clyde nenr the old Medford Farm.

In several places, entire fields were washed away completely. But, he pointed out, damage to torn and tobacco crops appeared not so heavy as was first feared. "Corn can be reclaimed except in places where the water stood In the Melds, and except in cases where the plants were washed away completely, much of the tobacco can be saved." he continued. nf the hardest hit of the farmers was Mr. Ferguson, whose I 10-acre meadow was carried away by the flood.
