SrT - Ill 1 JKJtOCUM --Olor Carolina v Ay mss, ASSOCIATIONS T.V.A. We were interested in a recent editorial we read in "The Nashville Tenneesseean" of Nashville, regarding the issue of Life Magazine that gave' such a graphic report on the progress and war value of the nation's most exciting accomplishment-the TV A. The magazine pointed out that the great job of TV A had been done in '!nine short years." "In this critical summer of 1942 TVA is creating power for the nation's war machine. It is building a dozen new hydro electric dams. It is installing extra generat ing units in a dozen dams already finished. Into the great chemical and electro-metallurgical plant of the awakening South, it feeds the crisp current that produces aluminum, explosives and bombers." The article also notes that TVA, "the lar gest single construction project in history," is supplying 60 per cent of the current for the vital aluminum industry. That it gene rates now three-quarters as much electricity as Niagara Hudson, America's No. 1 power system and that its generating capacity "will increase by'50 per cent this year and another 50 per cent in 1943." That when -completed, TVA will be able to supply "power hungry America with one-half as much electricity as was purchased by the entire United States during World War One." " "The people of the Tennessee Valley region who have TVA all around them and know better than the people of other parts just what TVA has been and is doing, are grati fied by the report on TVA Life has given. For even more impressive than the sheer size of the job is the efficiency of its orga nization and conduct and the nation at large has every reason to share the pride of the Valley region in the achievement." According To Babson During the week Roger Babson wrote that it is "work and not amusement that brings progress, to cities." He was writing from his hometown in Glocester, Mass., and noting the changes that had come to his native com There was a lot of hard sense in what he wrote. In speaking of less work and more entertainment he said: "I am troubled by the shorter hours which everyone, 'except mother' is working. Stores which used to open at 7 a. m. do not open until 8:30 a. m, Fifty years ago we all went to bed fairly early very few were on" the streets after dark. Now, Main Street is so full of cars, belonging to people that you can hardly get through. Although enterprise is dead, every form of entertainment is booming." He referred also to the empty churches that once were full to overflowing, and of how cities must have vital and growing churches in order to prosper in the long run. He pointed out that for a few years after the war, while Europe is recouping, business should be good, but only a return of real re ligion, hard work, longer hours, and free en terprise will a later depression of tremen dous magnitude be prevented. Sympathy For Our Haywood Neighbors The tragedy at Waynesville is one which strikes close to the people of Hendersonville and Henderson county. The people here deeply sympathize with the people of Way nesville and Haywood --- extending this sen timent not only to the people directly affect ed and bereft by the tragedy, but likewise to the people generally, who undoubtedly were startled and unsettled by the sudden and terrible results of this accident. Family connections also bring close to this town and county the tragic aspects and the sorrows arising from the accident. Hendersonville Times-News. How Dear To Our Hearts Once upon a time, many and many a year ago, men did not wear pajamas when they went to bed. They wore night shirts. ' Nightshirts are long usually and shapeless. Except that they are made from a softer material, they look and feel different than oversized grain bags with sleeves. The War Production Board toyed with the idea of shifting all men from pajamas to nightshirts until we beat Hitler. They may have thought we would hustle that much more to finish the job. But calmer, kindlier second thought intervened. They will take the frills off our pajamas, but they won't sentence us to nightshirts. The ultimate in indignity has not been achieved. Concord Tribune. . J THE TIME, THE PLACE, AND THE GIRL! Voice OF THE People What do you think will be the next commodity rationed in this country! J. E. Barr "Perhaps the next thing will be tea and coffee. There would be no reason for rationing coffee except for scarcity of transportation." Richard Barber, Jr. say coffee." -"I would James C. Moore "I would say it would be electricty." Small Town Never having lived in a great city we can not judge fairly, but from reports of others we doubt if sympathy to those in distress flows as freely in large centers as in the small er communities. It is easy to understand for in' smaller towns people get to know each other better, While they may know their shortcomings, they also have an appreciation of the sterl ing qualities of their neighbors. Last week when the great disaster that took life and property occurred, the entire population was consumed with sympathy. It renewed one's faith in humanity, to see such genuine and heartfelt sympathy. , We had feeling also for the telephone ope rators and the hospital attaches for we are sure that there was scarcely a minute es caped without ft call regarding the condition Of those who suffered injuries. Anxiety was expressed wherever on& went, and sympathy for the in j ured and sympathy for Jheir families, whose, hearts ached for their loved ones. '';-': We are glad to live in such a community, for at such times it is necessary to have the sympathy of those about us, to help us to carry on, and keep going in the face of dis couragement and sorrow. HERE and THERE ". By HILDA WAY GWYN Mary Margaret Smith, county home agent, recently handed us the following and said . . .

Lost: Three Ships Ten thousand tons of steel enough to build three ships were lost because of a two-day strike by C. I. O. union steel work ers at the Bethlehem Steel Company's Lack awanna, New York, plant last week. It doesn't matter who was in the right about the workers' grievances: Government machinery is provided for adjudicating such disputes. The point is that the men walked out and steel for ship's urgently needed to replace those being sunk daily by enemy submarines failed to come from the mills Three ships, two days late. They could have been tankers, bearing precious fuel oil or gasoline . to United Nations ships at sea or fliers in far-off land bases, or to war industries in dire need. They could have been ore boats carrying iron from the Mesabi range or tin from Bolivia. Three ships lost. Not a single one of the true Americans among the striking steel workers wanted to hamper his country's -war effort, but he may not have thought of it just this way. The United States no longer depends up on volunteers to fight its battles, but by law has made every male from 21 to 65 a. potential soldier. Can it continue to de pend upon voluntary efforts to keep vital war industries doing their part? Must arbitration of labor disputes espe cially in wartime continue to depend upon free will and individual whim? If American war workers consider them selves as important as soldiers at the front, and that as much depends upon their efforts. they should remember that a dissatisfied . soldier cannot throw down his gun and walk off the field.
