The project will cost approximate ly $800,000, according to Lloyd E. Griffin, executive secretary of the commission. Of this amount the WPA would furnish $480,000 and the state’s 100 coimties the balance of $320,000. School funds, he said, are not available for the work.

Betterment Group Calls Meeting at Cowee A meeting of the members of the North Macon B'Ctterment as sociation and the school patrons of the northern end of the county has been called for 8 o’clock Sat urday night at the Cowee school to discuss plans of obtaining a high school at Cowee, R. C, Rick man, president of the association, said' all interested persons are in vited to attend. A high school was formerly sit uated at Cowee but was abandoned some years ago when the consoli dated high school was estabhshed in Franklin. A check-up yesterday on the outcome of the annual Red Cross call for Macon county showed a total of 304 memberships reported. Several workers were yet to be heard from and the roll call chair man, the Rev. Frank Bloxham, ex pressed the hope that the final count would result in a 50 per cent greater membership than en rolled last year, when the number was 214. „ “The closing of the call, Mr. Bloxham commented, “shows that we are much short of our goal of 5(X) members, but far ahead of last year’s total, A great deal of praise is due to the noble band of workers who have achieved this vcar’s result. Some' few member ships are still to be tnrned in, which will probably result in the total being a 50 per cent increase over last year. It is not too late for persons who have not already joined to do so. Such persons sho,uld see one of the roll call workers right away.” Among the reports received this week was one troin Chapel schoo for colored children, which turned in its full quota of $5.
