Large Crowd Heard Chair
man Lilienthal In Address
At Court House Here
The vital role the TV A is play
ing in fighting the war was brought
Out in the address of David E.
Lilienthal, chairman of the Ten
nessee Valley Authority here on
Friday night before an audience
of around 600 persons at the
meeting in the court house.
The gathering had been spon
sored by the Lions and Rotary
Clubs of Waynesville. It was at
tended by citizdns from over
Western North Carolina, farm
specialists from seven states, in
addition to Col. J. W. Harrelson,
head of State Colege, R. W. Schoff
ner, farm economist, of Raleigh,
and Harry Brown, general agent
of the Farm Credit Administra
tion and former assistant secre
tary of agriculture.
In stressing the importance of
the work of the TVA, Mr. Lilien
thal pointed out that if the TVA
failed then German industrial cen
ters will not be darkened with
American bombers and General
MacArthur would look in. vain for
the aid he will need.
The TVA is the servant and not
not the boss of the Tennessee
Valley the speaker pointed out.
It will become a billion dollar
investment said Mr. Lilienthal.
Many of those who were hostile to
the idea of the Tennessee Valley
have been convinced of its sound
ness and are now seeing the great
potentialities it .offers, ! contin
ued the speaker.
The TVA stands today in all
its activities one hundred per cent
for defense effort it was evplained.
In discussing the organization Mr.
Lilienthal stated "there are no
politics in the TVA," things are
worked out on a merit basis.

Drive To Collect All Type
Of Rubber In Salvage
Haywood participation in the drive
to gather scrap rubber has brought
very satisfactory results the. first
three days of the 15-day drive as
set up by President Roosevelt.
Cay ton C. Walker, general chair
man for the; county, said last
night that the response had been
gratifying. "Future driving of
civilians will depend upon how
much rubber we gather during this
campaign," he said.
All old scrap rubber is needed
by America and will be reclaimed
and manufactured into needed
articles. Any piece of rubber can
Service stations have been au
thorized by the government to buy
the scrap rubber at one cent a
pound. The oil companies of the
nation are co-operating, and will
pick up the rubber from the ser
vice station and ship it to smelter
Mr. Walker's station has col
lected 6,000 pounds (or the three
days of this week.
Chairman Walker urges people
living in the rural districts to
bring in their scrap rubber this
week. The campaign closes July
first, and the amount collected be
fore that time will determine, he
said, to what extent rubber pro
ducts will be made available for
Some people with small quan
tities are donating their scrap,
although all stations are offering
one cent pound. "Whether a
citisen wants to donate their scrap
oi receivei tfrm ceBt a pound, is a
personal matter, )'
-"James Ewart, of (fciethera street,
this week Sold 1110 pound of
scrap rubber. He has been gath
ering it up for months. ', ..
Citzens are urged to search at
tics,, garages and basements for
discarded rubber articles, such as .
tires, boots garden hose, mats, wa
ter bottles, overshoes, rubber
heels, and many other items that
have served their period of use
"It is estimated that there are
two milion tons of rubber lying
around in America. It is the
patriotic duty of every. American
to help collect this rubber and see
that it gets to some service sta
tion. Scouring the country for
scrap rubber is one of the most
worthwhile contributions that can
be made by civilians today in our
war effort," Mr. Walker said.
The rubber must be collected
by July first so hurry. .
