Byrnes' Plea Spurs
Waste Paper Drive,
Now in Sixth Week
With well over 450,000 pounds of
waste paper collected, Washington
schools, with a few recruits from
nearby Montgomery County, tomor
row will start their sixth week of

Victory program with a new incen

forces is to continue in the vital

1,500,000 Tons Short.
At present, according to Mr.
Byrnes, waste paper is being collected
at the rate of about 6,000,000 tons

must be collected now to meet the
minimum.
In four days last week more than
168.000 pounds were collected
through the schools, which was

Washington school children are to
meet their full responsibility in the
emergency. Hardlv a home has not
