CULLOWHEE, April 13. In
line with the policy of serving the
teachers of North Carolina the
Western Carolina Teachers Col
lege will operate a Workshop
Demonstration School project in
connection with the regular sum
mer school program this summer
The Workshop is designed to
provide opportunities for exper
ienced teachers, principals, and
supervisors to work on practical
school problems. Emphasis is be
ins? increased in North Carolina
schools on a new program of sup
ervision. Tire Demonstration School
will provide opportunities for those
interested in supervisievi to observe
and participate in the newer ideas
of school supervision. Experienced
teachers will have an opportunity
to learn what is meant by the term
supervision and to see just what
is expected by a modern super
visor. Members of the staff of the
State I Apartment of Education
will be available to answer ques
tions and to advise the members
as to their own school situations.
The school will be under the di

fice. CCC Marks Ninth
March 31 marks the ninth anni
versary of the founding of the
Civilian Conservation Corps. Cre
ated during the darkest days of
the depression, the CCC has in the
'ast nine years done a two-fold
job. It has made healthy, self-reliant,
trained young men out of
hundreds of thousands of boys, the
majority of whom at the time of
their induction into the Corps were
under-nourished, dissscouraged, at
loose ends, jobless and hopeless.
The work the enrollees have done
has advanced by a generation the
program of protecting and develop
ing America's natural resources.
Practical on-the-job training giv
en these American youths has de
veloped proper work skills, habits,
and attitudes, personal hygiene and
knowledge of safety measures, thuc
fitting them for service in war in
dustries, in food production, and
in the nation's armed forces. More
than Vt million boys and young
men have been physically, intellec
tucally, and morally bettered
through regular and vigorous out
door work and through camp train
ing and schooling programs.
With tihe growing intensity of
America's national defense program,
more and more camps have been
shifted to war efforts. CCC boys
are constructing landing fields, and'
rifle and artillery ranges. The
ninth anniversary of the Corps
finds it with its .numbers of camp
and total mart power greatly re
duced ,but its morale and esprit
de corps unimpaired, and with its
work program geared to national
defense and proceeding fuH speed
WAKE UP AMERICA!
THE CIVILIAN POPULATION HAS NOT REALIZED THAT
WE ARE IN AN ALL-OUT WAR
Thousands of typists, stenographers, and secretaries are needed
for defense work. Urgent demands are being made on our sdiool
to fill this demand. We re rushing our students through just
as rapidly as we can to meet this emergency. We are in need
of many more people to train for these defense jobs. Who is
willing to help his country in these perilous times?

Growth Of Rubber
Is Started In U. S.
One of the war problems which
has stumped the experts has been
threatening shortage of the na
tion's supply of rubber, with the
foreign supply cut. Now, according
to the General Tire and Rubber
company of Akron, Ohio, the prob
lem will be solved. William O'Neil,
president of the company, has
presented the case of a plant call
ed "guayule" as an emergency war
measure to replace far-eastern rub
ber. Congress passed a law provid
ing for the development of the
Guayule Emergency Rubber Pro
ject, under the direction of the
Forest Service of the U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Gaiuyule From Mexico
Guayule is a dwarf shrub, native
of Mexico, which contains more
rubber by weight than any other
known plant. Because the cost of
growing is 20 cents a pound com
pared with six cents a pound in the
Bast Indies, guayule never has
been able to compete on a com
mercial basis with Hevea rubber.
Guayule will produte a' rubber
equal to the second grade Hevea
rubber used in tires, and will give
the country a supply of- natural
rubber necessary to supplement the
synthetic program advanced by
Jesse Jones, secretary of com
merce. It is needless to say that the
guayule rubber issue will play a
vital part in the war effort by
providing the real rubber needed
for the manufacture of tires for
military purposes and for relieving
tire ' shortage throughout the na
tion. At present, 2,000 men. are at
work in the Salinas Valley in
California planting guayule seed to
meet the rubber demands of the
future. There is available a seed
supply of 24,000 pounds. This seed
reproduces at the rate of 10 to
one at the end of the year. Thus
in 1943, we will have 240,000 pounds
of seed and in 1944, 2,400,000
Many proponents of guayule as
a rubber source believe that the
present project is the beginning of
a giant new rubber industry in the
United States. They point out that
the cost of producing guayule is
much less than that of producing
synthetics and that guayule has the
further advantage of being a na
tural rubber and therefore better
adapted to the making of tires.
The chief objection to guayule
in the last few months has been
the fear that it could not produce
rapidly enough to be of use during
the war, but under the planned
culture of a two-year growing per
iod, the most pessimistic prediction
made is that there will be avail
able for the rubber industry by
194a about 500,000 pounds of guay
ule or almost the normal demand
of the rubber industry.
And Fruits Recommended,
Mrs. Cobb's Recipe
Home dtying is a satisfactory
method of preserving certain fruits
and vegetables, says Miss Ruby
Scholz of N. C. State college. Used
as a supplement to canning and.
storage, it will reduce the cost of
food budget and provide an ade
quate variety of foods for winter
use, she pointed put.
Some of the advantages of dry
ing, or dehydration, listed are : The
products' weight is only one
fourth to one-ninth of the weight
of the fresh materials; there is a
considerable reduction in bulk;
storage is possible" for long per
iods without , thi.vsfc' of hermetic
ally sealed special containers ; -and
very little special equipment is
Among fruits best suited for
drying are apples, peaches, and
pears. Berries and figs do not dry
successfully in this climate, and are
most palatable when canned in
syrup by the hot water bath
method, or when made into pre
serves. Drying is advised for a limited
number of vegetables. Dried vege
table materials are prone to de
teriorate in flavor and table qual
ity. Corn is delicious when dried.
So are green beans, some greens,
and peas. Vegetables to be dried
require partial cooking before they
undergo the drying process. This
pre-cooking should be done in
steam rather than water, to pre
serve the food value.
Types of dryers for fruits and
vegetables include the outdoor,
screen tray, oven and .sieve dryer.
The outdoor pan should be of wire
netting, cheese-cloth covered, and
slanted to the direct sun. Drying
also can be done in trays, or can
vas, or no non-resinous boards on
a slanting roof.
Recipe For Drying Corn
Mrs. R. J. Cobb of Highlands,
has won a reputation of keeping
delicious, dried corn. The following
is the method of preparing this
corn as given by Mrs. Cobb.
Select tender ear corn suitable
for table use. Boil on cob as for
eating; then cut off the cob and
scrape the cobs'.
Put this corn in pane, prefer
ably enamel-ware spreading about
one-half inch deep.
This corn should be put in oven
with door open to avoid too in
tense heat. Stir often for six hours
or until danger of souring is past.

Remove from stove and finish
in warming closet usually taking
two to two and one-half days,
stirring occasionally. This corn is
very nice and if properly dried is
a golden brown color when fin
isshed. It has a delicious flavor
unexcelled by canned corn.
Note: Mrs. Cobb uses yellow
corn which is more nourishing and
has a more desirable flavor.
