Moving caravans carrying the household goods of the former residents in the building used by the Bolshevoks as their "concentration camp" at Kharkof. It is across the street to the left that "Judge" Syenko, the brutal carpenter of Kharkof, held his ghastly seances of death. Now that the Bolsheviks are a safe distance from the city, the former residents are returning finding their furniture which was hidden in cellars, and are moving into their domiciles. This photograph was taken by the American Red Cross News Service, at the request of General Denikine's government, as a part of the series which is to give a dispassionate view of Bolshevism in operation to the people of the United States

Miscellaneous design. In the course of its construction programs, the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) has occasion to design and construct many different types of buildings, always with an earnest effort to set examples which are within the ability of local residents or organizations to follow. This school at Fontana, erected for the children of TVA employees, is operated in collaboration with the North Carolina State Department of Education and a large portion of it will remain in permanent use,

Recreational structures. Big Ridge Lake. Diving tower, beach and bath house may be seen in the background. This forty-five acre body of water has proved an attractive recreation spot for thousands of visitors since it was first opened to the public in May 1934. Encircled by the 3,500 acres of wooded hills in Big Ridge Park, the resort is provided with a boathouse, bath house, a public lodge, nineteen modern vacation cabins and a beach with a specially constructed pool for children. Located on the eastern boundary of Norris reservoir about twenty-five miles northeast of Knoxville, Tennessee, the lake was formed by constuction of a small dam across one of the arms of the reservoir. This recreation area and the 3,800 acre Noris Park near Norris Dam were developed by the National Park Service and the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in cooperation with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). This is one of many comparable parks on TVA reservoirs, most of which are in use and greatly enjoyed by tourists as well as residents of the surrounding area who previously had few, if any, outdoor opportunites for ourtdoor sport and recreation. The completion of other recreational parks has been prevented by the war

Miscellaneous design. Another library, connecting with a larger reading and recreational room, built to accommodate construction employees and residents of the vicinity. This structure is demountable, having been constructed in slices on the same principle as demountable houses, at a distance of some 300 miles from its present site at Fort Loudon [i.e, Loudoun] Tennessee. It can be easily dismantled for relocation where the need for library services may be greater in the future

Freezer locker plants and cooperatively owned cold storage rooms are important in the agricultural improvement program of the Authority. Photograph shows a view of one at White Pine, North Carolina. Such structures are designed for local materials and the simplest possible workmanship because the purpose is to encourage rural residents to plan and erect them on their own initiative

Electrical cooperatives. The wholesale power of the Authority is distributed among rural consumers by cooperatives formed and managed by the farmers. The headquarters buildings of the cooperatives, usually located in small towns or in open country, are for many of the local residents the first contact with modern construction, architecture and interior appointments, as well as with electrical power and modern business methods. The buildings contain reception rooms, which also accommodate the display of appliances; offices; garages; warehouses; and meeting rooms, usually in the second story. They are built within strict cost limitations and perform a much needed service as clubs or minor cultural centers for the rural population. This one is located at Murfreesburo, Tennessee

The grocery store in the group of buildings shown in K 1870 was likewise designed as an offset to the usual dark and messy crossroads establishment typical of rural areas. While originally established to serve TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) employees, it is now used by residents of the vicinity in general

This structure is fairly typical of the kind of accomodations provided for the recreation of unmarried TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) construction employees of both sexes. Whenever possible such structures are later converted to fill permanent needs of the region. During the construction of Norris Dam, the structure included a large lounge, a refreshment and lunch space, and auditorium with stage and projection room, capable of accomodating 300, library and reading room, barber and beauty shop, restrooms, administrative office and committee or lecture rooms. The auditorium was converted into a gymnasium. It now serves as a community building for the permanent residents of the town of Norris, a regular restaurant having replaced the refreshment room, while the county art center has been installed in place of the library, and the offices, display room, and storage room of the handicraft cooperative have taken up the space formerly occupied by the barber and beauty shop

Miscellaneous design. Another school built by the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), primarily for children of its own employees at Norris, Tennessee, but operated in combination with state authorities and made available to children of county residents. It is used as a model school in the state teachers' training program
