pany something to think about.
Dr. Stringfield served as a ma
jor in the World War and his only
regret now is that he is not young
enough to get into this war as a
soldier. As a civilian, he is do
ing his part as chairman of the
Wayneaville draft board.
As far as is known, he is the
only man in Haywood who served
in the Spanish-American war and
the World War.
A new father knows what "to
have and to hold" really means.
Two of the soldiers going from here to Cuba in the Spanish
American War. were twin brothers, George and Sam Keith, from the
lower end of the county. They looked so much alike that their oflicers
never learned to tell them apart. Dr. Tom Stringfield, who was their
officer, tells of some interesting events that happened during the
campaign, in the accompanying article. This is one of several hundred
pictures Dr.. Tom has of the Spanish-American War period.

The regiment marched through

with the enemy that day.
Among the more than a hundred

H were twin brothers, George and
Sam Keith. They were so much
alike that Dr. Stringfield could not
tell them apart. It was a custom
of the brothers to celebrate pay day
by drinking. Usually one would
land in the guard house, but being
identical in looks, gave the brothers
an advantage, in that the free one
would visit the jailed brother, and
after a few minutes, the "prisoner
brother" would walk out. The
guard could not tell which was
which, either. A little later the
prisoner would return, and in pre
tense of chatting with his brother,
would let the rightful brother go

Used Motor Oil
The North Carolina State High
way and Public Works Commis
sion is meeting the rising cist of
motor oil by re-refining used oil
drained from the crank case of the
6,000 pieces of highway department
Highway Chairman Ben Prince
estimates the reclaimed oil will
amount to around twenty-five per
cent of the highway commission's
average consumption for a year.
Up until last year state contract
price for oil was about twenty-five
cents per gallon; the last bid re
ceived for the same quality oil was
forty-seven cents. The reclaimed
oil costs at most fifteen cents per

C. Austin replaced his outmoded re.
refining equipment which was heat
ed by gas, and as a result was
(mite hazard, with a modern elec
trically heated outfit which has a
capacity of 200 gallons per day
of nine hours.
Operation of the new oil reclaim
er is quite simple. Used oil is
dumped first into a huge screen
covered, iron tub and then pumped
into two worn out tank cars where
it is allowed to settle. After five
days in the tank cars, water is
drained off from the bottom and
oil is ready to be poured into the
Fifty-five gallons of used oil
and 35 pounds of petrol filtering
material are poured into the con
tinually agitating tank of the re
claimer. The mixture is heated to
450 degrees and allowed to remain
at that temperature for fifteen
minutes. The oil is then forced
through 29 sheets of special filter
paper (which resemble blotters) by
compressed air. Oil is then pure
and is placed in barrels which are
delivered on the same basis as
new oil to the highway division
Each highway shop and prison
camp has its oil pool into which is
dumped the leavings from the
equipment crankcases. When a
trip has to be made to Raleigh, oil
is placed in drums and sent along.
There is a supply of some 15,000
gallons of oil awaiting re-refining,
an amount which piled up while
the new reclaimer was getting
into operation. About 10,000 gal
lons have been refined during the
last three months. Reclaiming
has been done on a small scale
for eight or nine years.
Highway chemists make care
ful tests of the oil runs and have
found the average viscosity weight

According to those chemists,
the re-refined oil is as good

it is better.
Filter papers have to be clean

each run, but can be used up to
