During 11 Years,
Many To Be Made
The 11th anniversary of the Fed

ration, which serves this area, mak
ing steady progress with its post
war activities despite handicaps to
line building, according to an an
niversary report by Carter Os
borne, president of the Coopera
tive. Pointing out that this month
also marks the end of the first
year since wartime line building
restrictions were modified, Mr. Os
borne said thai I he Cooperative
lias built HO miles of line and ex
tended service to 4t() new rural
consumers since .Japan's surren
der. In its current construction pro
gram, covered by loans already ap
proved or now pending with the
Kural Klecl ril ical ion Administra
tion, the cooperative will add 485
miles of line and 2,10(1 consumers
to its lines as soon as the material
It is the lirsi stage in the cooper
ative's planned area coverage pro
Cram, which will bring service
eventually to fi.OIIO consumers in
1 his area.
The cooperative obtained its first
loan of $42,000.00 fnim HKA in
lOli!) and built its original H7 miles
of power lines in Haywood county.
These lines were energied in Au
gust, and served 170 consum
ers. Today, the system consists of
3(H) miles of line serving 1,400 con
sumers in Haywood and Buncombe
To finance its program, the co
operative has to date received a
total of $459. (iOO in HKA loans to
be repaid over a period of 35 years
with interest at 2 per cent. To
date $35,850.20 has been paid in
principal and interest on the loans,
including $10,225 repaid on princi
pal in advance of due date. In ad
dition to funds already received,
the cooperative has received ap
proval of loans totaling $172,400
that are available for new conduc
tion and has applied for $515,000
more in loans to finance construc
tion planned in the near future.
RF.A's eleventh anniversary finds
that agency handling the greatest
volume of loan applications in its
history, Mr. Osborne said. Through
out the nation, REA borrowers that
were in operation on July 1, 1945,
were deluged with new service ap
plications shortly after the building
restrictions were removed. This
forced an enlargement of their
postwar construction plans. In less
than nine months, nearly 100 new
rural electrification projects be
came active in unserved areas and
more than half of them had re-

When It I". A was established 11
years ago, only approximately
750,000 of this country's farms bad
power line electric service. Today
about 2,750.000 American farms, or
nearly 45 per cent of the total, are
electrified. More than half of
those electrified since 1935 are
srvd by RKA-financed lines. On
February 1, 1940, UFA borrowers

Most of these are farms, but also
homes, rural schools, churches,
stores, factories and other rural
establishments, the electrification

more effective use of rural com

Materials shortages that are now
delaying building operations are
receiving special attention by REA
experts and co-op officials, Mr.
Osborne explained. The pple situa
tion, most acute of all a few
months ago, is improving. Line
hardware, including transformers,
conductor and meters, is still critic
ally scarce. Locally, the program
of the Haywood Electric Member
ship Corporation is affected most
by the shortage of poles, trans- j
formers, conductor, meters and ,
some items of pole line hardware. 1
In spite of these aggravating de
lays, Mr. Osborne said, more than
28,000 miles of new lines and 133,
000 rural consumers were added
to REA-financed facilities in the
nation during the first eight months
of the current fiscal year. It is
only a question of time until these
bottlenecks are broken. When they
are, the rate of new construction
will surpasse any peaks attained
in pre-war years.
The local cooperative, Mr. Os
borne said, now serves rural com-1
munties in Haywood and Buncombe j
counties, has construction work in j
progress in Jackson and Transylva-i
nia counties and has funds allotted ,
for Macon county.

larger banks, as it keeps each tell

Three large vaults have been
constructed in the building. The
largest is for the safety deposit
boxes and bank's funds. This one
has an automatic time lock. An
other vault, entered from the direc
tor's office, will be used by the
bookkeepers for all bank records.
This dual vault system enables the
main vault to be closed within a
few minutes after the bank closes
daily. The bookkeepers can get
their records in the other vault
when the day's work is finished.
The third vault is in the base
ment and will he used for storing
old bank records, which must be
kept ten years, and for bulk safety
storage for the public.
The bank has had installed 500
new safety deposit boxes, making
a total of 1,000, These are in the
main vault on the first floor.
Something new here in banking
is the night depository. This is
especially designed for merchants,
who can put their day's receipts
in the vault at night, instead of
having to keep it in their place of
business overnight or ever the
