People in all walks of life to
day were in one accord that the
third Annual Tobacco Harvest Fes
tival was a success from beginning
The Merchants Association, spon
sor of the event, was well pleased
with the results, and the fact that
such large crowds attended and
were highly entertained.
Members of the county agent's
staff, who carried the brunt of the
5-day and night program, were
happy, but tired today as tbey
gathered together the loose ends
of the festival, and made notes of
suggestions for next year.
The programs were of a high
calibre, from beginning to end,
with some of the best speakers in
the country occupying places on
the programs during the events.
The Armory literally groaned
Saturday night, as more than 3,
000 people jammed every nook and
corntir, wilh hundids being
turned away. The crowd came by
seven, and were there when the
last number was played. The 3,000
spectators saw Mrs. Jennie Mae
Early, crowned queen. She repre
sented the Thlckety community.
Then after she and her court left
the platform, five square dance
teams thrilled the audience with
some excellent danclqg. The Mars
Hill team took first glace honors,
while the Enka team was second.
U C, Edwardj la, -manager of the
winnittf leam; - feMlife Treil ' Tott
was in charge of the Enka dancers.
The judges were Wayne Holland
and George Bidstrip, of Brasstown,
and W. B. Collins, of Asheville.
The judges for the Tobacco
Queeii were Percey Ferebee, of
Andrews, Rush Hamrick, Jr., and
Ralph Gilbert, of Shelby, and Mrs.
Carl Klllian, of Cullowhee.
In the string band contest, the
Haywood Mountaineers were judg
ed the best.
Wayne Corpening, general chair
man, issued a statement of thanks
and appreciation to every person
who worked in any capacity on
the Festival program. "Without
this united cooperation, the com
mittee would not have been able to
have staged such an event cover
ing five days and nights." he said.
The Mountaineer had reporters
and photographers at every phase
of the program, and are carrying
details of each address in this is
