Please Give Liberally
We take this opportunity once a^:ain to
respectfully ask' that the people of Wilkes
county give liberally in the United War
Fund and Community Chest campaign now
Liberal giving means as much as you
reasonably can, whether that be one dol
lar or a hundred.
This money will go to provide comfort
and recreation for those in our armed
forces, to relieve suffering in allied na
tions, and to finance character-building
activities here at home for boys and girls,
young men and young women.
There are 25 different causes contained
in the present campaign. It would be a
burden if you were called on to make a do
nation to each, and every one is worthy of
your financial and moral support.
Instead of 25 different requests, all the
activities are contained in one fund, with

are winning and that we are desirous of a
When solicitor calls on you for a dona
tion, please don’t give as little as you can,
but be as liberal as your circumstances will
permit. Let us show to the world that we
are grateful for the plenteous abundance
we enjoy in this country.
Revolution or Hesitation
"An>'thing which facilitates ambition
toward paternalism obstructs democracy,
and nothing could contribute more to this
end than the impounding of the earnings
of the people by a government which pre
tentiously proposes to support them says
the Hon. V. J. Strieker, Judge of the Chan
cery Court, Mississippi.
"In democratic ages tyranny always be
gins with benevolence, and this benevo
lence, feeding upon itself, is supplied
through exactions from the people . . .
whatever the intention, this process gets
beyond control, and with compulsive
force, defeats itself in direct proportion as
the demand for charity comes to exceed
the demand for liberty. In their inevita
ble order, indolence, poverty and vice ad
vance in succession, until revolution de
feats the system, or resignation enslaves
Pulpwood cutters may well take pride In
their part in our Allied progress of the war
both in Europe and in the Pacific. Ack
nowledgement of their contribution was
made recently by Col. William H. Mc
Carty, of the Army Service Forces, at a
"Win the War Rally” in Michigan.
Addressing a large gathering of woods
workers, Colonel McCarter pointed out
that aircraft plant workers see the final
results of their work.
“You have no such tangible reward for
your efforts”, the Colonel said. “You labor
in the woods and very rarely do you have
the opportunity to see what type of product
your labor has built. But. . . it should be
a source of satisfaction to you that our
fighting men have a thorough appreciation
of what you haw done and are-doing”.
Col. McCarty added that the expleHuOs
these fighting men use comes from
wood. Their parachutes often are dertred
of wood fibre: And their food, tu^^Ket
and medical equipment came to them pro
tected from spoilage by. another pulpwood

Burance. To the question of why could pot
tht!! have been done before, the magarme
Hygeia says; “In addition to the neces-
sary evolution of public knowledge and
opinion and of actuarial data, me^cine it
self had to progress in effectiveness so thst
an insurance policy might be financially
possible to the man of limited means and
at the same time be actuarlalfe^ sound.
Hospitals themselves had to become avail
able. In 1900, there were 1,000 hospitals
in this country; today there are over 7,000.
Methods of medical care had to be improv
ed so that hospital days of Illness could be
reduced to a workable number. In 1912,
the average hospital stay for appendicitis
was 18 days; now it is 11 days. The aver
age course of lobar pneumonia has been
reduced from weeks to days. The case fa
tality of epidemic meningitis in 1^0 was
80 per cent; in 1935, 80 per cent;'wday it
is 6 per cent. These are only examples of
the general improvement in the quality
and effectiveness of medical care, which in
turn makes possible readjustment of in
surance rates to the point at which they
are within the reach of the average work
er on a sound actuarial basis”.
In plain words, until modem medicine
came along, the life and health of the hu
man animal was too poor a risk to be cover
ed by any form of insurance, even the com
pulsory health schemes of government.
FIGHTING MEN INSPIRE DONATIONS
General Eisenhower put it this way:
“The only thing needed for us to win is
for every man and woman all the way
from line to the remotest hamlet ... to do
his or her full duty”.
One duty we have is to keep up the
world-wide force of American generosity—
a weapon for victory and a powerful in
fluence for the peace—a force needed now
to win the victory and prepare for the
peace to follow.
For our own men, nothing else assures
them quite so well that the folks back
home are back of them all the way.
For our Allies, nothing else tells them in
quite the same way that the statesmanship
of the American people is still the friendly
and constructive influence that has built
for us everywhere those reservoirs of good
will which have symbolized these United
States as a nation everyone can respect and
The National War Fund offers oppor

LIFE’S BETTER WAY

THE BUSY WIFE
It’s wash the dishes, cook the meals,
And make the beds each day;
It’s listen as some child reveals
Its troubles while at play;
It’s feed the hungry little tots
And soothe their aches and pains;
It’s put them in their little cots.
Or keep their clothes from stains.
It’s sweep and sew and patch and mend.
And wash, then scrub the floors;
It’s be a neighbor—^good to lend—
And do a lot of chores.
It’s help the husband manage well
To save a lot of bills;
It’s smile when she would like to tell
Of troubles, sorrows, ills.
It’s help the children off to school
And fix their lunch for noon;
It’s practice well the Golden Rule
And keep the soul in tune
To do these things fi;om day to day—
The same things o’er and o’er—
And then with patience she must pray
To reach the Heavenly shore.
It's work and toil till late at night
And rise at ea^ morn;

And keep her full of grace,
So when she ends her earthly stay
In Heaven she’ll have a place
With saints and angels sweet aad fair
On God’s eternal riiore.

Nor troubles any mott.
