Ketner as June Dairy Month chairman (or Cherokee County has been announ ced by Morris L. McCough of Asheville, Western North Carolina Chairman. "Dairying has become a $100,000, ?M industry (or North Carolina funiliea,". states Mr. Ketaer. "This is reason enough (or observing June Dal?y Month. But More im portant is the (act that we are too little mjlk in our state( only a little over half of what we dMuld. During June; we hope to get more people In Cherokee County to saying "Make It Milk". The milk habit is one habit we can't go wrong on. Mr. Ketner stated that the pur pose of this program is to acquaint the public with the nutritional (acts about milk. He stated that the American homemaker spends 15 per cent of her food budget for dairy product*, but this actually buys 80 per cent of her family's nutritional needs. On a nutritional basis, this makes dairy products the most economi cal source of vitamins, minerals, orotein and energy - supplying foods. The dairy farmers, milk plants, agricultural agencies, health de partments and many civic gin y are joining forces to let the people of western North Carolina know that plenty of good fresh milk Is available, and that during June it is the richest and best testing ot any time. According to Mr. Ketner, plans will be worked out soon on the various activities to be carried out in the county. Chatuge Is Lowered for Hiwassee, Apalachia Work The elevation of the Chatuge Lake, in Western North Carolina and North Georgia, is being low ered, TV A said today, to provide storage space which will be needed later In the year when the dis charge of water at the Hlwassee Dam, downstream, will have to be discontinued because of construct ion activities, and because of main tenance work at the Apalachia Dam. ^ TV A said another purpose of the present drawdown la to supply water for Hiwassee and other down stream plants. Elevation of the lake at this time is at approximately 1,897 feet a bove sea level. TV A engineers say that if normal rainfall and runoff are experiecned over the next few months, the lake will be drawn gradually about IT feet or to ele vation 1,880, by early July.

After that, and during the progress of the construction work at Hi wassee, which will take about five weeks, the Hiwassee and Chatuge Lakes will be allowed to All. Because of the powerhouse con struction work now in progress at the Nottely Dam in north Georgia, water cannot be discharged from that lake over the spillway, and the water in Nottely Lake win remain near spillway level.

May Be In Auto Wreck , 11 the present rate of accidents on North Carolina streets and high ways continues unchecked, one out of every two persons now living In the state will sooner or later be in volved in a serious automobile wreck, according to Motor Vehicles Commissioner Edward Scheldt. Speaking over a state-wide rad [ io-television network in support ot | the current campaign being con ducted by the Governor's Traffic Safety Council, Scheldt said the only thing that can prevent this from happening is for every citizen who operates a motor vehicle to conscientiously and continually abide by the state's traffic safety laws. The Commissioner based his statement that one of every two persons in the state would be in MARRED BEAUTYI - jured in a motor vehicle accident on statistics which . show that in North Carolina, at the present time, a serious automobile acci dent occurs every 11 minutes, someone is injured every 34 min utes, and someone killed every eight hours. "The problem of motor vehicle accidents is one of the most serious with which our state is confront ed," Scheldt said. "Are we going to be content to drift along, day after day, month after month, and year after year and see this continue? Well, I for one am not, and I don't think that you are either. A great deal is being done by official agen cies of our state chen-ed with a responsibility in thik problem to make our highways safer. On the enforcement level we are endeavor tag to give our people honest and conscientious law enforcement On the engineering front, safety ef forts are being made by our State Highway Commission. But there is (till another element ? most Im portant element of all If we are to' materially improve this problem ? , ind that element Is you, the citi- ' ten ? you, the walkers and the op- 1 srators of motor vehicles here in Worth Carolina." Scheldt said that one of the big test causes for traffic accidents is hat everybody thinks they will lappen to the other fellow and not 1 o themselves. But he Warned that 1 accidents don't happen Just to the ' ither fellow. 1 ' j "They happen to you, too," he *id, "and an of us have a part to ?lay in tyris cafnbalgn now under- ' ray to make our highways the ' j ruly safeways they ought to be, ind can be, so that we and our rives, children, Mends, relatives.
