plaved an immortunt role in bringing
the con ernes' decision about. It
was repeatedly pointed out by Dr.
Morgan in Washington that the Xorris
machinery could not be used on
any other dam under TV A consideration
and if not used on the Hiawassee
project it would have to be
scrapped. Th ;t fact coupled with
the TVA's initial engineering oxpen
ditures here and engineer's reenv
mendatior.s that th local site was
ideal for Tennessee valley flood control,
was impressivC enough to formulate
the final dec^ on.
As to how long it will take the
TV A staff to give its directions, is
not known. But it is believed that
I the hiring of h lp. ninety per cent of
which will come from Cherokee and
at^rtoundirsz counties, will begin

mov.l of lilt- Xorris equipment may
