Burger Mountain Is Scene Of Religious Ceremonies Monday Bishop Tomlinson Leads Assembly In Prayer For Victory in War Rain, which fell intermittently throughout the day. failed to damp en the ardor of several hundred per sons who gathered atop Burger mountain Monday to attend the six hour world prayer day ceremonies at the place of prayer on the mountain peak. The attendance for the services on the mountain was considerably increased by delegates from all sec tions of the United States who are attending the 37th annual conven tion of the Church of God at the tabernacle 'on Central avenue in Cleveland, Tenn., which will be in session through this week. The bishop prayed for victory for the Un.ted Nations and for President Roosevelt as the worshippers pros trated themselves about the massed flags of the United Nations, with more than 200 members and their families in the armed forces kneel ing nearest the banners, with these words. "We thank Thee that he stands before us in Thine appoint ment." After tne conclusion of the prayer the crowd sang "Onward Christian Soldiers." now being called the Bat tle Hymn of the United Nations." Scripture mottos and banners were hung from trees about the impro vised altar. With but a few exceptions the en tire assemblage went to Cleveland to participate in the general assembly of the ch irch there. Telephone Users Urged To Ration Their Calls Still further reduction in long distance and local telephone calls is essential in order to assure vital war calls the quickest possible service. This announcement was made hero today by W. L. Lampkin. Man ager of the telephone company, who revealed that although there is some evidence of the public's effort to vol untarily ration their use of long dis tance and local telephone service in response to the Bell System's nation wide appeal for such help, the re sults are far short of what is need ed. Mr. Lampkin 's statement supple mented an announcement made by the telephone company in the sum mer. The telephone company's form er statement asked long distance users to eliminate the least neces sary calls and to place the really necessary ones at the Jess congested hours; It asked everyone to also make fewer local calls. It is now necessary to request all civilians not to place any long distance calls at any hour unless the call is very urgent, and to ask that every tele phone user voluntarily ration his local calls to at least one-third less each day. It Is urged that long visit ing by telephone be curtailed for the duration. This is essential in order to assure at all times the quick service which military and production men must WASTE FATS TO BE) COLLECTED HERE A campaign is to be inaugurated in Cherokee county it lias been an nounced here by county home and larm agents, for the collection of waste fats to te used in the war ef fort. Tlit waste fat is valuable !or the glycerine it contains, which is used in making explosives. Meat drippings and other waste fats, if not rancid, sire strained into clean cans by housewives, and when they weigh a pound or more they are sold to grocery stores. The gro cers in turn, sell the ?a?te tat they have collected to a rendercr. Grocers will pay housewives three cents a pound for all waste fats. The Consolidated Hide and Metal Co., of Asheville, will collect the waste fats from local merchants participating in the campaign, mak ing two or three trips to Cherokee county cach month. The need for waste fats is urgent. War in the Pacific has greatly re duced our supply of vegetable fats from the Par East. It is necessary to find substitutes for them. More over, fats make glycerine. And glycerine makes explosives for us and our allies ? explosives to down Axis planes, slop their tanks. si?k their ships. We need millions of pounds of glycerine and housewives can help supply them. The following merchants will be glad to buy your waste fats: Murphy Sanitary Market Murphy Supply Co. Johnson's Market A <& P Food Store. Other stores wishing to participate in the waste fat campaign may do so by contacting the home agents of Cherokee county. Social Security Agent To Be In Murphy Sept. 16 A representative of the Asheville field office of the Social Security Board will be at the Postoffice , An drews, N. C., Wednesday, September 16, 1942, 9:00 A. M.. EWT. ? Court Boom, City Hall, Murphy, N. C., Wednesday Sept. 16, 3:00 P. M., EWT. Wage earners who have worked in a job covered by the Social Security Act since December 31. 1936. and have attained age 65. may be eligi ble to file claim for themselves, their wives, or minor children, whether they have an account num ber or not. Surviving relatives of deceased workers, such as widows, children, or parents, or if none of the above, persons who have paid funeral expenses, may be eligible to file claim. In addition, persons who have need of social security account mm- | 'Jjers or other information pertaining I to the Act are invited to meet this I representative at the time and place j mentioned. have. Mr. Lampkin stated. He added that unless voluntary efforts of civilians in general result in suf ficient reduction of calls to keep the lines clear for war messages, more definite measures may become necessary to make way for war calls on the overcrowded lines and central offices. "We ordinarily would relieve over crowded equipment by building more facilities, but we cannot do this now because the necessary materials are going into war weapons. So the so lution Is for all of us to cut down on our personal use of the telephone so that UBcle Sam's needs will come firet and will find clear lines and clear centra] office equipment", the telephone managCT concluded.
