High Tribute To
Miss Ida Lee Hunter
Mrs. Peart Hunter, who teaches
in the Franklin school, has receiv
ed the following letter from the
Navy Captain of Supply, Washing
ton, D. C, under. whom her daugh
ter, Miss Ida Lee Hunter, has
served, and which we are glad to
publish as a high tribute to one
of Macon county's young women.
My dear Mrs. Hunter: I
Your daughter, Miss Ida Lee
Hunter, has recently been de
tached from duty here in the
Washington Navy Yard and order
ed to the Naval Air Station at
Jacksonville, Ha., and I feel that
it would be unfair not to inform
you of how much she. was appre
ciated by the Supply Department.
Miss Hunter was efficient in her
work, was always courteous and
loyal. Above all she was everything
that one should expect of a typical
American young lady. If she ever
wishe. to return here for duty, I
am sure that a place can be found
for her and her return will be
welcomed by all.
Very truly yours,
C H. Cope, Captain,
(SC) U. S. Navy Supply Officer

the state leader to engage in the
national 4-H rural electrification
contest, and learn which of the 100
and more rural uses of electricity
may profitably be used on their
farms. Where currqnt is not in
use participants will ascertain what
adaptation of tt can be made. All
Contestants are encouraged 'to con
Examples of. what can be achiev
ed are these from last year's con-,
test: An Oregan 4-H'e'r helped
rewire' and hang new fixtures for
better lighting in a community
church. A 17-year-old Oklahoma
boy made a grindstone with a
-horsepower electric motor from
a washing "machine, together with
fly and pulley wheels from a
w-ornout engine. A Montana club
ster wired his own, as well as 25
other homes and farmsteads. Illi
nois' 1940 topnotch 4-H electrical
member made an electric fly trap
by utilizing a 2,000-voIt neon 3'ign
transformer, and built conmections
for an electric brooder with odds
and ends. An : electric basketball
scoreboard for his high school was
designed, constructed and wired by
a Michigan youth. A West Vir
ginia lad installed convenient
switches for his farm's water pump,
cribi and hen laying house, and
performed many other useful elec
trical jobs at home.
Rewards for outstanding achieve
ments are provided by Westing
