eat, .not too many yean ago uran
ium was Just another mineral forf
which miners, geologists, and,
chemists were trying to find some
use In 1011, Mr. Foard said. Col.
Joseph Hyde Pratt, state geologist
of North Carolina, wrote that
there was no market for uranium,
and the ore was selling tor only
$1.50 a pound.
Mr. Foard said that although
uranium has not been fonnd In
large enough concentrations in
North Carolina to warrant min
ing, some of the richest uranium
ore In the U. 8. has been thst dis
covered in the Jar Heel State.
Another valuable mineral found
In North Carolina la mica, which
is used as an Insulator In electric
al equipment. Top-grade ruby
mica now brings $75 a pound, and
Western North Carolina now pro
duces 90 per cent of the domestic
supply. At present the U. 8. is
forced to depend on imports of
mica ? chiefly from India ? to
fill the heavy demand.
Western North Carolina. Mr.
Foard pointed out, also produces
a considerable amount of feldspar,
used in the manufacture of glass
and ceramics. This o-c now brings
$10 to $U per ton.
One little-known WNC mineral
in Mr. Foard'a collection is rutile,
a titanium exide, which is used in
the production of Jet engines.
Comprising a large section of
his collection are the seml-prec
lous stones used in the manufac
ture of Jewelry Among those he
lias found on his trips through
Western North Carolina are rubiA,
emeralds, aquamarine, sapphires,
amethysts, moonstones, sunstones,
garnets, rose quarts, rutilated
quarts (Venus hair stones), smoky
quarts, and banded agate ("tiger
eye"), ,
Mr, Foard explained that North
Carolina is the only state In the
union where emeralds are found,
and added that the world's largest
emerald was discovered at Stqpy
Point, near Statesvllle, around
1012, and Is now in the Museum
of Natural History in New York
-
~ity.
At present. he Mid, 'there is an
?merald mine in operation near
Uttle Switzerland.
Another tact, concerning North
Carolina known by only a eom
>aratlvely few people, Mr, Foard
commented, la that this. aUU led
the nation ih the production of

fornia in ltfS.
Probably the moat unusual. I
specimen in his collection, is "a
stone that bends." It's a sandstone
Hilled Itacojumite. nearly as ilexi
>le is a similar piece of leather.
Prospecting for minerals U in
ereating, Mr. Foard pointed out.
>ecause of the 'possibilities of
risking a valuable And. Aqd It's
ilso good exercise, he added.
Mr. Foard said he studied geo
ogy at the University of North .
Carolina, and first became inter
sted in minerals whils working
n Yancey County in 1934-35, but
t wasn't until three years ago
hat he actually started his collec- 1

on in ail schools.
Participation was felt essential
in the state-wide safety Inspection
of all motor vehicles the first
week In May, and carry the pro- ,
grama into all churches, clubs and |
schools.
The group also felt that a series
of first aid courses should be
started at once.
The committee discussed the
proposed program of the young
people from Waynesville high. The
WTHS group suggested a program i
for safety about two weeks ago.
The matter of the public checking
on drivers and pedestrians who
violated traffic laws came in for
considerable discussion, with the
matter to be given more thought,
and presented to the full board of
directors of the organisation.
.Cpl. Smith said it was an im
portant phase of safety that all
cltiaena report persons who were
drunk on the highways, or driv
ing reckless, as it often meant the
officers could stop the driver be
fore a fatal wreck.
The advisory committee felt
that the program would have to be
one that would carry on into the
faU months, and thought the pro
posed roadeo should be staged be
tween now and May 15th.
The advisory committee of the
?? I
council was named last Monday
night at a meeting when the Hay
