Observes 8th Anniversary
April 5 marks the Eigli tli ( Anni
versary of the creation of the
Civilian Conservation , Corps, uni
versally recognized as an outstand
ingly successful and useful social,
experiment. Born during the dark
est days of the depression, when
hundreds of thousands ot youiig
men w.ere jobless and hopeless and
at the same time America's heritage-
of natural resources was in
! grave danger for the lack of. man
power needed for its conservation,
the CCC brought the boy and the
job together to the benefit of both.
The Corps, during the past eight
years, lias advanced the cause of
conservation . by at least a genera
tion .'and at the sarin; time has
helped over three million boys and
young men find themselves. .
In the South, the I'. S. Forest
Service has jurisdiction over work
performed 'by the CCC on Na
tional .and State Forests, on pri
vate lands, and in the domain of
the Tennessee- Valley Authority.
An inventory of work accomplish
ed brings out some impressive
totals. Regional . Forestsr Joseph
C . Kircher cites the following as
some outstanding achievements'-:
N-early 30,000 miles of road have
been built, and over J2.Q0!) -bridges.
Some 25,000 miles of telephone line
verev strung and over on." 'million
rods of fence constructed, as well
as about 3.600 buildings , f '.'various
types, ranging from administrative
headquarters and repair shops to
Fire is the worst menace to our
Southern forests. To . combat this
evil, CCC boys have erected 800
lookout towers and built ov.er 40,
miles of firebreaks. They contribu
ted over a million man-days of
work ' to other fire protective ac
tivities and nearly an equal amount
of fighting fires that without their
trained arid enthusiastic aid would
have devastated vast areas.
'Nearly.'.' 400t(X0 .acres, an 'area'
over half as large as the state of
Rhode Island, hav,e been ' planted
to forest in the Southern Region
by the CCC, Mr. Kircher states.
Enrollees worked some 900,000
man-d.ays in the nurseries which
.supplied the seedlings tfor this re
forestation, and collected nearly
onf-'half million bushes of pine
cones and three-fourths .million
pounds of hardwood seed. Timber
stand improvement work, snch as
pruning, thinning, and removal of
weed trees, was carried on ov,er
nearlv two million- acres. Timber
estimating and forest surveys, up
on which proper forest manage
ment is based, covered over three
million acres. ! . "
Other activities had to do with
building up and protecting the
wildlife resources , of he ' forests.
As an example, over ZVi.-million
fish vere stocked in hikes and
While carrying on these niany
conservation projects. CCC en
rollees themselves . reaped many
benefits. They learned discipline,
self-reliance, and habits of indus
try. They: gained in health and in
ability to achieve economic inde
pendence. A large proportion of
them received on-the-job training
in special skills, such as truck i
and tractor driving and repair, use
of heavy mechanized equipment,
carpentry and, masonry, and road
and' bridge construction. The im
portance of this training, both to
the future lives of the boys and
to the present program of nation
al defense, cannot be over-emphasized.
By Only One Car Caused
280 Deaths In N. C.
"It is speed that is killing people
every day on North Carolina high
ways, and until speeding is dis
couraged by unrelenting and im
partial (enforcement, we need not
expect any reduction in single re
sponsibility auto iccidents", say.s
Ronald Hocutt, director of the
Highway safety division.
"Yours may be the only car on
the road and you still stand a
chance of being involved in a ser
ious accident unless vou drive at
a safe speed."
Hocutt made this statement after
studying the 1940 reoord with re
spect to single responsibility ac
cidents on North Carolina streets
and highways which are accidents
involving only one vehicle and one
driver, as "iwhen a car overturns
in the roadway, runs off the road,
or strikes a fixed object.
It doesn't take two cars to
make an accident," he declared. "It
only takes one car driven improp
rly. Last year, 988' persons were
killed in traffic accidents in North
Carolina, and 280 of these were
killed in single responsibility ac
cidents. Fifty-four were killed in
cars that struck fixed objects, such
as bridge abutments, telephone
poles, etc., on the roadway or on
the right-of-way. And 161 were
killed in cars that got out of control
and ran off the road. Sixty-eight
were killed in cars that overturned

TWO COATS OF PEE GEE HOUSE PATJJT
COSTS NO MORE!
Think what this test panel means to you . . . how
you save money . . . because only 2 coats of Pee
Gee Mastic House Paint do a better job than 3
coats of average paint Many home-owners right
here in town can tell you that Pee Gee's 2-Coat
System gave them a mighty fine paint job ... at a real saving too.
Based on Research: The Pee Gee 2 -Coat System consists of two entirely different
paints. The first, an undercoat, is specially formulated to seal the wood or old paint
surface. The second. Topcoat, is designed to give brilliant finishes . . . and resist the sun.
And believe it or not it costs no more per gallon than other good paints!
