Haywood Does A Good Job
"It was democracy at its best in action," said Richard
W. Slocum, chairman of the Newspapers' United Metal
Scrap Drive, in praising the eff orts of the people of the
nation in the scrap campaign. :
The foregoing was demonstrated in stirring and dra
matic action in Haywood Connty and the Waynesville com
munity ort Wednesday, the official scrap day, designated by
Howard H. Clapp, county chairman, and sponsored locally
by the Waynesville Rotary Club.
The amount of scrap collected in one day, also shows
the results of the united efforts of a community and a county.
Wednesday proved beyond any doubt that Haywood
County has gone out to do all in the power of its citizens
to win this war. We have leaders of ability and the people
Enthusiasm and work in the Campaign was not confined
to one group, or organization nor did it have any age limita
tions. The young and the old worked side by side in their
patriotic efforts to keep the great steel mills of this nation
rolling so that the boys on the battle fronts may be supplied
with warring implements. '
While the "battle is not won," a day like Wednesday
stirs the patriotic fervor of the people who took part, and
inspires them with the ultimate thought of victory. Hitler
cannot beat a country where the civilians can work as they
worked in Haywood on Wednesday.
Last, but by no means least, the Haywood County men
in the service, whether they be in camps in this country,
or whether they be on duty on the high seas, or on some
foreign soil, should feel deeply touched and know that they
have behind them the complete cooperation of every man,
woman and child in their native county back home.

In a 21-day campaign, Haywood County collected 2,
167,659 pounds of scrap, according to Howard Clapp, county
chairman, yesterday, after he had consulted with leaders
in every section of the county after the whirl-wind drive
of Wednesday had added a million pounds to the scrap heaps.
The cooperation of all citizens was beyond anything ever
to take place in Haywood.
Final figures will not be available until the last or we
month, he said, but it now looks like Haywood averaged it
pounds per person in the drive for scrap to help build war
Trucks were busy yesterday hauling the piles of scrap
to junk yards, and clearing school yards. WPA trucks were

Already 140.000 pounds had been hauled from tne ftign

cleared during the next few days.
Several other large boilers are being cut up and will
be brought in this week-end to be added to the total tonnage.

One of the old timers said he
bet there had been more lies told
around that old stove than any

he recalled how popular Mr. Ray's

when business was not so lively as
it is now on Main street, and the
