Defense Aluminum To Be
Made By Nantahala
The gigantic hydro-electric plant
under construction at Nantahala in
this county, by the Nantahala Pow
er and Light company is being
rushed to completion to become an
1 other unit in the production of
'aluminum' for national defense.
When completed it, will produce
approximately 60,000 horsepower.
The force of around 1,000 men
is working in three shifts, and it
is expected to increase this num
ber to rush the project to com
pletionpossibly, within a year. ;
'.The (ilcnville project of the same
company in Jackson county is prac
tically complete, and some of the
machinery and skilled workers are
being transferred to Nantahala.
Power from both plants will be
used by the Aluminum Company
of America to produce aluminum
for ' national defense. The Nanta
hala project will have about twice
the capacity of the Glcnville plant.
Excavations frr the power hoase
at Beechertown,. near Tqpn, known
as Camp No. 1 of the Utah Con
struction company buildinR the
dam, are complete and work of
pouring concrete for the founda
tion will bet-in next week. A diver
sion tunnel is already completed

the building of the dam. One tun
nel head is being driven at this
tioint. and two others on cither
ide. of "Dick's Creek which will be
ronni-cted by a pipe line across
the creek. The other end of the
tunnel at the po-wer house ond is
u)o being dug that will meet that
which 'heads- from Dick's creek.
Thr tail race at the power plant
ha also been excavated, and ex
cavation is nearly finished for the
pen stock the big steel pipe which
carried water from the tunnel to
the power house. This pipe will be
laid in a bed of concrete. The
tunnel head at the power house is
(i00 feet up on the side of. the

Samuel Ikenson ruefully surveyB some of the 4,000 casualties on his chicken farm near Lakewood, N. J.,
victims of the forest fire that raged through the Jersey resort area. Nearly 100 homes were destroyed and
damage was estimated in the milliens. The flames threatened to wipe out Lakewood itself before the fire
split into two sections and passed around the community. .
Aqwme To Be Flooded '
Since a large part of thc Aquone
community will be under water
when the lake fills, a number of
the residents have already moved
or will build homes on the banks
of the lake.
The Nantahala Power and: Light
company has been purchasing
farms in this area for the past
ten years in anticipation of the
building of the dam. The company
has been removing the cemetery,
with permission given , by relatives,
to a location on . the side of the
lake. The Baptist church is in
the lake area, and will be rebuilt
by the company. The Aquone
school, which employed two teach
ers during the past year, may have
to be abandoned. It is possible
that pupils attending this school
may be transported by bus to near
by schools, since the formation of
the lake is expected to reduce the
population in that area, it is re
ported. Rod Rc-Located
The Aquone post-office will be
located on one side of the lake if
it is continued. Many homes will
be rebuilt 'on the banks of the
lakef as some of the farms will be
only "partially flooded.
Some state and national forest
roads that will be under waser will
be replaced with new highways
well above the margin of the lake.
The main highway between Frank
lin and Andrews will have to be
relocated, and it is proposed that
this pass through the Dick's Creek
community and cross the Nanta
hala river just below the dam site.
The new highway will be wider
and better surfaced than the pres
ent road, it is promised.
The lake will add another scenic
and recreational attraction to the
county's assets, that will offer
boating and fishing to residents
and visitors. ;
Demonstration Will Be

Food conservation will have an
important roll to play in the .De
fense Program of 1941. In order
to train . leaders for all county
workers who are in charge of can

interested person, a food conserva
tion demonstration will be given
Fire Wipes Out
Seek To Replace Recprds
Destroyed, In Fire
When the Bank of Franklin
burned in November, every record
pertaining to the. Franklin -Cemetery
was destroyed by the fire.
Only a few lot owners had re
corded their deeds. This presented
a problem next to the impossible
to determine the ownership of
the various lots. However, we be
lieve that this has been worked
out correctly with very few pos
sible' exceptions. It is urged that
each lot owner have his deed re
corded for his protection, for there
could be another fire later on.
For the past number of years
Alex Sprinkles has been caretaker
of the Cemetery and no one eaa
justly complain of his service. Of
course,- quite a number did not
arrange with him to keep their lots.
In .such cases, the cemetery with
its limited funds saw that the lots
were mowed twice a year, but this
does not leave them in a condition
in keeping with the respect we
have for those who are buried in
Prior to this Mr: Sprinkles has
charged $1.00 per lot per year for
their upkeep. He states'? that this
only yields him am income of
around 12 cents an hour and that
quite often he has to wait for. his
pay until the end of the year and
in some cases has worked all sum
mer keeping up lots and has re
ceived no pay at all. Mr. Sprinkles
states ' frankly to the Board of
Trustees that he could not con
tinue to do the work on the above
basis and make enough out of ilt
to support himself and hi, family.
The Board of Trustees, therefore,
fixed' the price per' lot per year
at $1.50 to be paid in advance.
The price of preparing a grave,
removing the surplus dirt, and
leveling up and sowing the grave
in grass was also raised from $5
There is nothing, in the by-laws
of the Association requiring its
rnembera to have any particular
persons to keep up the lots or
to pay any particular price. It is
a great deal more satisfactory,
however, for one man to have it
in charge. Alex has served us
faithfully during the past several
years and it is hoped that all the
members will continue to avail
themselves of his .services. Jhose
who wish to do so, will please
see him immediately about it.
We wish to call your attention
to the fact that' each lot owner
takes his deed subject to the rules
and regulations of the Association.
These rules are a, follows:
1. Each grave shall be kept level
with the surrounding lots in order
that the mowing may be done
c. .-no person may place any
monument or other obstruction in
any walkway, and the rfuse from
any lot must, be moved entirely
from the cemetery.
3. The planting of shrubs or
trees is only allowed in lots set
apart for that special purpose.
4. Each person shall keep his lot
m a condition calculated to show
the respect to which those buried
in such lots and the adjoining lots
are entitled. Only those have died
whose memory and resting place
have been forgotten.
by Mr. D. E. Hall of the Burpee
Can Sealer company in the Agri
cultural Building May 7 at 10 a.m.
It i important to remember that
this training school is for the bene
fit of Macon county homemakers.
Those attending are urged to
bring pencil and note book and
be ready to ask questions. Mr. Hall
will be glad to test and readjust
the gauges of pressure cookers.
Because no one can foresee what
is before trs in the immediate fu
ture a full pantry is the best pre-
pardness for the individual family.

Children Of War Veterans
Of Macon County
Shortly after the World War a
movement was' set on foot -to' erect
a .suitable memorial for the 17
Macon county -boy's who lost their
lives in the service. For this pur1-'
pose .$1005.00 was raised but the
question as to the sort of a me
niorbl was never fully decided,
and the movement was all but for
gotten for ai'-. number pi years.,
However, the money -.raised ' bad
been kept on interest in the Build
ing & Loan Association until some
two or 'three- years ' ago,. -when ' the
principal with the accumulated in
terest made a total .miouut of
$2,(XX1.(X). It was then agreed .by
the principal contributors that this
memorial should take the iomi of
a permanent loan fund available
to the descendants of Veterans of
the World War for the purpose of
higher education. A permanent
trust wa, created, one trustee of
which was fr" be selected by" the
County Board of Education, one
trustee to be selected by the
American Legion and one to be
selected by the local Bar.

Mr. Cabe, who is treasurer of
this fund, states that there is ow
$2,277.(K) on deposit in the Memor
ial fund in addition to two loans
which have not been paid back.
From this $207.00 is available to be
loaned to some worthy boy or girl

trol the breeding of flies.
Lest We forget, here' are some
hints on such control:
1. Every garbage can should
have a tight fitting cover.
2. F.vfry horse or cowstall with-
in the city limits ' of Franklin
should be cleaned thoroughly at
least every two days and manure
spread upon the fields or stored in
a fly tight box or pit.
3. -Each residence should have a
sewerage .'disposal properly pro-,
tected against flies, - '
4. All surroundings should be
kept clean and well drained.
5. Houses should be" screened
with at least 16 mesh seheen wire.
The abovemeasures will also
eliminate mosquitoes to some ex
