The falls, described by a U. S.

three miles down the White

in the Gen. Pickens division of
the Sumter National Forest.
, Both falls are more than 100
feet higher than Niagara. Their
exact height is not known dui
Forest Service contour maps show
the lower falls to be approximately
280 feet high and the upper falls
possibly may be higher. Niagara

Commissioner Of
District, Thrash,
Wants Group To
Map Out Program
Thirty-nine Haywood men were
named today as members of 13
township committees to help map
plans for the rural road program
in this county. L. Dale Thrash, high
way commissioner or the 10th dis
trict, has notified eacn oi me ow
men of their appointment, and at
the same time outlined a plan for
studying rural road needs in each
ot Haywood's 13 townships.
Mr. Trash said that he appreci
ated the cooperation he was get
ting from the people. "They seem
to realize the tremendous JoD to De
done and understand that we can
not get to everybody s road first.
Mr. Thrash, togetner wun nign
way engineers, came here several
weeks ago and discussed the gen
eral rural road program, and point
ed out his plans for putting crush
ed stone on all main roads where
it was needed. About 200 attended
the meeting.
In naming the committees to
serve in Haywooa, wir. inrnsu, m
selecting the men, wrote each: "I
would like for you to represent the
"Go Forward" road program in
your township. As you know, this
program is for all the people. 1
suggest that you hold public meet
ings, and let the people discuss
road's of your township, recom
mend road locations changes, point
out danger spots, and muddy places
on school bus routes. Other mat
ters that are necessary for the
improvement of our road system
should also be discussed."
Mr. Thrash also pointed out to
each member that any road main
tenance matters should be referred
to Raymoift'cf Menaffey; coifntf rjbad
foreman.
Another suggestion of Mr.
Thrash, was that the people on
each rural road give the road a
definite name, and put up the name
on posts at each end of the road.
He also suggested that plans be
made to paint all mail boxes and
place the owner's name and box
number on each one.
Mr. Thrash pointed out that his
plans were to have all township
committeemen, together with the
I county commissioners and others
interested in rural roads, to meet
with highway engineers and the
