sible. : '
To relieve the situation
we are engaged in an expan
sion program costing mil
lions of dollars. Many thou
sands of miles of new long
distance circuits have been
placed in operation this
year, and more are on the
way. Additions to many
switchboards have been in- ,
stalled. Others are being set
up as fast as they can be se
cured and our men can place
them in operation.
But manufacture and in
stallation of telephone
equipment takes time, and
defense priorities are mak
ing it increasingly difficult
to secure essential materials.
Long distance telephone
users can do their part in
this present emergency by
avoiding as much as possible
placing calls during the peak

11 a.m. and 7 to 8:30 p.m.
The understanding and
cooperation of those we
serve will be most helpful
and will be genuinely ap

Burley In White
Oak 10 Better
Than 1940 Crop
White Oak township has by far
the most outstanding tobacco crop
in Haywood county. It is estimat
ed that the crop in the White Oak
area is 10 per cent above 1940,
while the county as a whole is es
timated to have about a 65 per
The poor crop of burley over the
county is due to weather conditions
in most eases. The long dry pe
riod at planting time and exces
sive rains during the last three
weeks have caused a "stunted"
growth and much root-rot.
A recent visit by the county
agent through Madison, Yancey
and Mitchell counties showed only
a 60 per cent crop of burley, un
less weather conditions are ; ex
tremely favorable during- the re
mainder of the season.
Most of the White Oak farmers
set their tobacco during the dry
season in the spring and watered
