Our Post is deeply grieved in
the sudden death of State Com
mander, Henry Ingram, which
occurred at his home in Ashe
boro, early last Sunday morning.
He was taken with a heart at
tack. The funeral services were
held from the First Methodist
Church of Asheboro, on Tuesday.
Henry had just about served
eight months of his year's ser
vice as Commander for North
Carolina Legionairres. He was
just about ready to complete one
of the best year's work for any
Commander in this state, and had
been mentioned as a candidate
for National Commander next
Mrs. Ingram and family have
the deepest sympathy of the en
tire membership of the Jambes
Post American Legion, Louis
burg, in their bereavement.
The following letter was re
ceived this week from our Na
tional Commander, which will be
of interest to our members:
THE AMERICAN LEGION
Feb. 17, 1943.
Mr. E. F. Thomas, Commader -
American Legion Post No. 105
Louisburg, N. Ct
The membership records at
National Headquarters reveal that
your Post has recently been awar
ded the "Citation for Distinguish
ed Service." It is, therefore, my
pleasure to convey to you and to
the members of your Post my
hearty congratulations and com
mendations upon this impressive
To have enrolled for 1943 the
equivalent of your average mem
bership of the previous four years
by November 30th, 1942 is evi
dence of the devotion of your
many loyal Legion associates to
the American Legion program
and its fa>r-flung activities.
The critical days which our
country is undergoing make all of
us appreciate the prime necessity
for a great and virile organization
such as The American Legion.
Added to our normal load will be
many new jobs of the utmost im
portance to our country. We all
appreciate as well that thousands
of our most loyal members have
or are returning to active service
in the armed forces. We must
have the man power to carry out
such assignments. You must
have the membership for ap
pointment to the details. I am
sure this early constructive ef
fort of your Post will be perpet
uated throughout the year.
11 ? .11
Our total membership last
year wag 53. Up until this time
the membership for this year
now is 85. There are lots more
ex-service men in the county and
even in Louisburg that we would
like to have in our Post. How
about it. Buddy? -
Our late State Commander set
as a goal for this year of 20,000
members. We are just a little
short of this goal. What could
be a more fitting tribute to him
than to pass this goal overwhelm
Our Post is trying to work out
some plan that our membership
might get together in the very
near future. As soon as we can
you will be notified. So be on
the lookout for this notice.

Lend - Lease
Raleigh, Feb. 22. ? It now can
be revealed that Lend-Lease ^
planes, trucks and guns played an g
important part in the long ad- *
vance of the fighting French for- g
ces under General Leclerc across i?
the desert to Tripoli from deep v
in Africa. s
Lend-Lease American planes ]j
roared over the wastelands froni|s
Lake Chad in French Equatorial j
Africa with reinforcements and:
supplies for General Leclerc'ri,0
forces as they pushed northwardly
toward the coast of Tripolitania. s
On return flights they brought L
| back to base hospitals men woun-|y
;ded in engagements with Axisia
units on the line of advance.
American Lend-Lease trucks it
carried the fighting French sol-)
diers in their advance and Amer-i
ican machine-guns and other I
arms, in the hands of French sol-j
diers, poured destruction uponij
Axis garrisons as the French mop- j
ped up Fezzan. -y
The forces of the fighting ^
French left the Tlfoesti sector of j
French Equatorial Africa on De
cember 29 last and reached Trip
oli. 2,000 miles away, on Janu
ary 25. Their start was timed a
with the arrival of new Lend- ']
Lease arms and other supplies ,
from the United States. These c
were landed at a ?port in the t
camerooms and were transported j
about 800 miles to the vicinity of
Lake Chad where the French ^
Itroops were waiting. if
