Program Is Set
For Rationing Of
Copper Wire
Farmers of Haywood nty who
wish to obtain supplies of copper
wire for farmstead wiring should
make application to the County
USDA War Board, which has been
charged with rationing of this item
locally, it was announced today by
Glenn A. Boyd, chairman of the
The new procedure for rationing
copper wire was announced by the
War Food Administration and re
places former distribution methods
by which farmers applied for pre
ference ratings. It provides that
both old and new users of elec
tricity obtain copper wire in the
same manner.
"Rationing of copper wire now is
set up on a state and county basis,"
Chairman Boyd said. "North Caro
lina was allocated a total of 24,000
pounds for the current quarter
year, and this amount will be allo
cated to counties according to local
needs. This plan of rationing is
designed to effect a more equitable
distribution of existing supplies,
and assure those eligible for wire
that they can obtain the amount
which they au- allotted."
Under the program, Mr. Boyd
said, copper wire applications will
be approved only for essential needs
which will add to the food produc
tion program or save labor on the
farm. The maximum amount which
can be a lotted to new users of
electricity, after power line exten
sions have been approved, will be
75 pounds for any one farm. Where
an extension of farmstead wiring is
requested on a farm already served
by electricity, the maximum allot
ment will be 50 pounds of wire.
The number of livestock and poul
try units on the farm will determine

Farmers need not apply under
this procedure for certain small
purchases of wiring materials, he
said, as a farmer may purchase up
to 75 feet of insulated copper wir
ing, except for household use, by
certifying to his local dealer that
he is a farmer and needs the equip
ment for production purposes.
Certificates issued for purchase
of copper wire must be surrendered
to a supplier within ten days after
date of issuance or they become
void, he added.
