Contract for power lines awarded last week


A contract for the construction of 240 miles of power lines in Macon, Sumner, Trousdale, and Clay Counties, was awarded last week to a firm in North Carolina for approximately $175,000.

The contract calls for the construction of lines in several places in the first three counties and throughout Clay County, beginning at Red Boiling Springs in Macon County and continuing to beyond Lilly Dale.

Clay County farmers increased their soil building crops 40 percent in 1937 over 1936, Charles Vaughn, county agent announced Monday.

A total of 700 farmers shared in the program last year, while 1200 have signed up for this year’s program. Approximately 95 percent of the benefit payments have been paid.

Following the deadline last Saturday for candidates to qualify to enter the June 4, Democratic primary, office aspirants are expected to wage an active battle until election day.

The qualifiers were the following: For sheriff, Allen Boles and B.B. Masters; register, Mrs. Mary Dale and George Butler; Circuit Court Clerk, W.F. Waddle; trustee, W.A. Cook; County Court Clerk, J.H. (Jimmy) Reneau, Mrs. Roxie Lynch and Guy B. Johnson; County Judge, J.B. Bailey and C.J. Mabry.
