Board of Education of Haywood coun
ty has been working upon '.lie .May
budget. In the nroi-i:ng last Monday
held for the purpose of liniihini? up
the document before submitting it to
the Board of County Commissioners
for their official confirmation, several
things affecting the school-, of the
county came up for consideration. One
of the matters that claimed attention
for a time was the question of bot
rowing the sura of $25,000 to replace
the expenditure of a like amount by
the Waynesville township committee,
although allocated in the budget for
'he payment of tue sal tries of the
ttwnship teachers, had been used for
In the discussion of the question
of making the loan, the only point at
issue was whether or not the instal
ments and interest should go upon
the county budget or be taken from
the special tax of Waynesville town
ship. Mr. R. L. Prevost and Mrs. J
M. Long, representing the township
committee, presented a petition in
person from the committee asking
that the Board of Education borrow
the money, charging the sinking fund
to the county budget and the interest
to Waynesville township budget. Af
ter a fall discussion of the matter
the question was put and failed to
carry, members voting "n;." explain
ing that they were in favor of bor
rowing the money and lending it to the
township committe in accordance
with the school law as given tinder
section 276 of the codification of 1925
but were opposed to the request as
given in the petition. The township
refused to modify then- request and
1he action was declared . lost.. .
Another motion was then made tl.tt
the county board borrow the sum of
$25,000 with which to pay off the
outstanding obligations of the county
including all teachers' unpaid salaries
in Waynesville township if the chair
man can get from the attorney cf
the board the proper legal advice as
to how it is to be handled. Mr. T.
A. Clark, the attorney, explained that
the board of education cannot borrow
money legally unless in anticipation
of the budget and that if this money
is borrowed, provision will have to be
made in the budget to have a sinking
fund and interest to retire the claim
as it faTIs due, a matter that every
body does not understand.
It is hoped that the way can be
found to borrow this sum so as to pay
the teachers the amounts that are due
them, which will not only relieve the
board of an embarrassing situation,
but will pay the teachers the money
that has been due for a long time.
During the discussion that tjys sit
uation orougnx out, tne united sen
timent of the board was emphasized
that better school advantages for
every part of Haywood was to toe pro
vided, that the fartherest corner of
the county was entitled to the same
-'fits and ooportiniti ;is any
other. From the advanced positions
taken, one must believe that there is
a bright future ahead for the country
schools as well as those of the towns.
'Another matter of outstanding im
portance passed upon was that of al
lowing $2,600 in the county budget for
a superintendent for Waynesville
township schools. This came as a
clmiix after its was learned that the
County Commissioners had declined
to confirm the amount of $3,400 for
a cr.t.jty wide supervis . to wrk un
der and with the county superintendent
If this is allowed by the commission
ers, Waynesville township will have1

As a matter of self-protection for

income, indeed as a matter of the

That was the earnest conviction ex
pressed by every one who spoke on
the present state of the industry nt
the cattle men's meeting in tiic town
ball at Clyde Tuesday afternoon.
In respect to attendance the mett
ing was a disappointment to those
responsible for the calling of it.
However, they found much encour
ngemeent in various indicatinos show
ing that all over the country ther,'1
is appearing a real awakening to the
extreme seriousness of the situation.
A keen sense of the unavoidable need
of organization, they feel is growing
Mr. (iwyn who called the meeting,
acted as ihairmun. After a few In
troductory remarks he called upon
James (I. K. McClurc of Hunromlie
county, widely noted for his success
in organizing the farmers of that
county, also of Hemic ;n coenty, to
explain the proceedure and offer sug
gestions toward promoting similar
Action in this county.
Mr. McClur? briefly explained the
discoeuragenient met bv him and the
few at ulrst interested with him in
the moement to organize their fellow
farmers for self-protection, over at
Fail view. At first for months, he
said they could induce only from
eight to fifteen of the farmers in that
vicinity to attehd the bi-monthly
meeting--. Then, suddenly, he de
clared, the idea caught fire and spread
and that very quickly thereafter a
sufficient number were lined up with
the movement to enable them to un
dertake the building of a co-operative
warehouse a few miles out of
Asheville toward F i view.
A great many dicouragements of

Now, he tells, there are four ware
