THE FRANKLIN PRESS AND THE HIGHLANDS MACONIAS
(By Margaret Scherf)
1 don't want to tell anyone else what to do with his money. This is
XSt to myself ;
What do you mean,
Walking around in Nylons without runs,
When MacArthur needs gun ? . ,
You've killed a lot of people, Scherf,
But what have you done
' To hustle Adolph under the turf?
i Oh! you bought some lO-cemt stamps?
An occasional dime
Isn't going to reconstruct a griddle
. For Goering's middle.
You'd better fork over to your Uncle Sam,
Or you'll be sitting its the Nazi stables
Writing publicity for Goebbels.

Funds For Special Road
RALEIGH, N. C September 18.
State Highway Commission meet
ing here tolay voted to recall all
funds set up for special road bet
terments throughout the State.
Highway Chairman, Bei Price,
said this action was taken "be
cause the Commissioners recogniz
ed the conditions confronting the
Highway Department brought on.
by declining revenue." Price indi
cated the Commissioners were de
lighted to take this measure.
The resolution as drawn up by
the highway group read as fol
"Resolved, that all allocations
for -specific betterments be can
celed except for retreatment pro
jects, county road improvemer.ft
under division wide betterments
a.nd such betterment projects now
already under way where it is nec
essary to preserve the investment
already made in the project."
The action was taker because of
existing Federal restrictions halt
ing any construction work not di
rectly aiding the war effort and
an effort to conserve all funds
available to supplement a critical
ly declining highway revenue.

ruled ineligible at the last minute.
Facing the ring wise veteran, Sgt.
Boiling from the 47th Infantry
Sloan displayed a willingness to
fight and managed to land a few
blows before getting the count
early .in the second round.
There is a real story behind the
ring appearance of the Falcon's
Assistant Editor. While busy with
stories and such ore the Boxing
Team, he became impressed with
the team's spirit. So ratner than
see them forfeit this one fight and
to gain 5 points for the 39th by
entering the ring (Ed. Note : Ac
cording to the A.A.U. rules a for
feited fight nets the winner 20
poinds while a decision win only 15
iwints going to the loser) Sloan
donned the gloves for the first
time in his life.
