Expert In Water

To Analyze Costs
A crew of clerical workers began
this morning compiling data from the
books of the Waynesville water de
partment, in preparation for W. H.
Newelle, an expert in establishing
water rates, who will arrive here Mon
day morning to make an analysis of
the local water rates.
Mr. Newelle is employed by the
North Carolina league of Municipal

The system used by Mr. Newelle in
making analysis of water rates is

J. W. Seaver, engineer Yes, it will
soon be obliged to do so. Why not

get it? ;

Hugh Massie, merchant "By all

another opportunity to get a gift of
$100,000, and the rest on nch' easy
terms. The Lake is the biggest asset
Waynesville has at present time.
Bill Chambers, Hazelwood Yes, I
think it should be done at this time.
Walter Crawford, lawyer "The
towns can get by with half the cost
now that it would take at a later
date. It would be disastrous to delay.
If we are going to be a tourist cen
ter, we hae to be ready."
Chas. E. Ray, Jr.--Definitely yes.
(1) It has been established by court
action that polation of Richland Creek
must cease and this is the responsi
bility of Waynesville and Hazelwood.
(2) The PWA grant and loan provide
the cheapest money that the towns
can hope to obtain. Delayed action
will mean greater cost later. (3)
Lake Junaluska is a big asset to Hay
wood county and when freed from
the handicap of having its Lake pol
luted, it is bound to grow inte a much
bigger community and mean more
business to us. (4) While the rela
tionship may not be direct, the re
cent announcement in regard to
building of the Parkway into Soco
Gap, the completion of the state
highway into Cherokee from Soco, and
the opening of the Park next spring,
mean that Junaluska along with all
of Haywood county will develop rap
idly, and make a clean lake indispen-

served by the creek has shown sub
