To Be Held September Ist
Reports from many sour- ;
ces indicate that the num-; 1
ber of entries in the Tri-'
County Cattle Show on the 1 ,
fair grounds in Spruce Pine'
on Friday, September 1,1
will exceed all previous re-j!
cords. The quality of the
stock to be shown also pro
mises to be better than in
any of the shows that have
been held, starting in 1941.
Final plans for the show
were adopted at a meeting
of the farm agents of the
three counties and their as
sistants acting as a com
mittee in charge, held last
• Saturday in Spruce Pine.
At this meeting the decis- j
ion was made to have the
farm agent of the county in:
which the show is held etfCh' <
year serve as chairman. |
That means that George :
Conrad of Mitchell will
the chairman this year.':
Next year the farm agent j:
of Yancey will hold this \
! place, and in 1952 the farm
agent .of Avery will_ head
the managing committee.
Manager of Show
The decision also was
made to place the. authority ,

Rev. Julius Van Hensley, ]
71, of Burnsville, Rt. 2, who ]

for the operation of the
show in the hands of one
man. For several reasons,
the farm agents thought
that the manager of opera
tions should be some one
outside of their group who
had a direct and serious
interest in the improve
ment of the cattle of these
counties. They accordingly
requested Guy Wilson,
manager of the Carnation
Company plant in Spruce
Pine, to act as manager of
the show this year.
Hours of Judging
As a large number of en
tries is expected, the com
mittee decided that judging
will start promptly at 10:00
a. m. and continue without
interruption until all clas
sess have passed through
the ring. In discussing this
part of the program the
necessity for &11 owners to
have their cattle on the
grounds by 9 a. m. on Fri
day,; September 1, the day;
of the show, was stressed.
Ample Room For All
Ample room tq care
of all entries uhdei* cover;
will be available on’the fair
grounds, the committee p
wished prospective exhibiy
tors to know. Even thought
cliUe brought "than
last year, stalls for all will
be provided.
By arranging so owners
will not have to bring their
animals until the morning
of the show, very little feed
will have to be provided by
the owners. Provision for
watering will be made, but!
each owner is requested to<
bring his own pails to serve
his animals.
Cash In Hand for Prizes
Under the long-range
plan for the show the de
cision was made that the
business interests of the
county In which the show is
held should raise 70 percent
of the prize money. The
other 30 percent is to be di
vided between the business
interests of the other two
The show being held this!
year in Mitchell, the busi
ness houses of that county,
already have subscribed
more than SBOO.OO. It also
appears that they will put
up about $150.00 more.
