In connection with this phase of

percentage of farms 'rwried and those
operated by tenants, percentage ef
high school graduates, percentage of
those employed, sales income per
farm and retail trade.
Mr. Straus said there would bei
little difficulty in. selecting the route

task would come in choosing between
Tennessee and North Carolina.
"We, however, are dealing fairly
and expect to decide on a route sat
isfactory to both North Carolina and
Tennessee," he added.
