An urgent appeal Is made to all the people of Wilkes county to take advantage of the oppor tunity the United War Fund cam paign affords to provide comfort and recreation for the service men who are fighting to defend and perpetuate freedom here and abroad, and to aid the helpless and suffering people of war torn nations of our allies.

With the help of all the people who can give, the present campaign.can go over the top. Workers are now engaged in canvassing the people of the coun ty, and because so many causes are included in the preaent cam paign, liberal contributions are most urgently requested. Some contributions which were not solicited have been received. Gllpii Cooper WUCniwHore ^-pastil Home CM To AdfihreM ;,,Xibnoi' Speak at Church R.
