One large contribution to the
scrap pile of Waynesville was made
when the officials of the Standard
Oil Company donated the tanks
and other salvage at their bulk

other equipment which had been
left on the grounds were weighed
they would total more than 40,
The Bethel district school have
had one of the best organized
scrap campaigns conducted in the
county. Every section of the ter
ritory was covered in a regular
planned drive that left no spot un
touched by the energetic students,
who worked in squads. .The same
plan was used in the Waynesville
hitrh school districts, also with
with, amazing results.
On Wednesday every school in
the county will be organized in
the same manner, it was learned
from Jack Messer, county super
intendent of education, who is high
in his praise of the co-operation
of the students in the, schools
throughout the county.
A number of articles that peo

$177.43 has to date been collected,
according to Mr. Ray, making the
total $2,177.43 contributed by the
people of the county toward the
welfare of approximately 2,000
Haywood county men now in the
