In a letter received here by his sister, Mrs. Clifton Arnold, Ben says that the Jerries have learned to respect the American soldiers and their ability to fight.

W. Earle, Manager of the North, Carolina Pulp Co., of Plymouth, said to- ! day in stressing the immediate need for increased production to back the invasion of "Hitler's Fortress." "All over the globe our Allied military forces are girding for the death blow at the enemy. In the Atlantic the invasion may begin at any moment In the Pacific we already have the Japs on the | run as our offensive gains in strength. "Pulpwood with its many, many uses has played an important role in the war so far. Now its job will be even bigger. More and more supplies are needed to equip and feed our growing armies overseas. The boys in uniform are ready to do their part, even at the risk of death. But the Home Front must do its utmost as well if we are to win victory in 1944. "General Eisenhower, commander-in-chief of the European , invasion forces, has stated that we will win the war in 1944 adding, "the only thing needed for us to win it is for every man and every woman, all the way from the front line to the remotest hamlet, to do his orherfullpart.' "This means that the production army at home must keep pace with the fighting army at | j the front," Mr. Earle said.

"As the Allied armies roll on to Berlin and Tokyo, they will need enormous quantities of war material. They wi'l need smokeless powder, paper parachutes, medical supplies, weatherproof containers for blood pasma and for food, map paper, ordance wrappings and the hundreds of other articles so vital to a 1944 army on the march. "The Pulpwood mills are dependent on the farmers and oth- U ers in woodland areas to cut pulpwood and more pulpwood. Ever'y tree moved to the mill may mean the saving of another soldier, sailor, or marine. Every tree left standing may mean the death of a boy ? your boy or your neighbor's boy.
