Date For Opening
Haywood Schools
School children put a red riiiff
and a question mark around Mon
day. August 29lh.
The board of education will de
cide the opening date of school
for all the county when they
meet Tuesday morning at ten
o'clock. It now looks as if all
schools In the county will open
on the same date.
While the 29th is not definite,
it now looks very logical that it
will be the "back-to-school" day
for Haywood's thousands of
school children.

Turn to today's sports page
for the first of six illustrated

Two stones, believed by many
'o have been used in pounding

were uncovered by the recent
flood waters on Pisgah Creek near
Cruso, and they were found by

Well worn by use, and the wcath

stones have attracted much inter

used by the Indians in pounding

The small stone, found several
feet from Ihe larger one, still had
a portion of the wooden pin in the
center, which is thought by some
lo have been used in turning the
small rode in the large one

have expressed the opinion that
the two have no connection,
