40RTH CAROLINA DAY OF DEDICATION, JULY }, 19«
Work ia no longer nerely a privilege or opportunity; it ?. hJ
patriotic duty. No man or woman, white or colored, in North Carolina i
indeed in America today has any moral right to loaf or be idle even for a
part of the time. We are confronted with the mpst urgent need for wsxiuctW*
manpower in the history of our nation. Farm labor and industrial Later ' t
are absolutely indispensable for the protection of the national welfare and ,j
for the success of our men in arms. Under these circumstances all citizens is
of all classes, groups and races have a public duty to engage in .productive
work, even though the individual financial necessity for such work may not
«' Trustworthy reports have come to me from virtually every section of, ?
North Carolina indioating that hundreds, indeed thousands, of men, white and f
colored, are either not working at all or working only part of the time. 4 'ifir"
Likewise, many women, boys, and girls above the age of eixteen who could be
productively employed are doing virtually nothing in the way of productive -4s&
work. The tims has come when every able-bodied person should either be fight*]
ing or working. „ jjy
f•, **• .. ' ■
i&f*" J herewith call upon the citizens of our state to respond to this most J
urgent need. I have every confidence that our people will rise to this need
and I hope in a manner worthy of our state and its traditions. I urge the minis
ters of North Carolina and our teachers and school people generally, our civic
clubs, representatives of the press and radio, and other public spirited leaders
of the state to Join in the high endeavor to get every citizen of our state
productively employed on a fulltime basis. I further urge the Judges, mayors,
and law enforcement officers to do everything within their power and within the
law to end any idleness or vagrancy that may exist anywhere in North Carolina.
Furthermore, I call upon the local selective service boards to study carefully
the cases of those who have been deferred on physical grounds but who are able
to work and are not working. lam also calling upon police officers and
sheriffs to visit places in their cdtiae and counties where.loafers and idlers
customarily congregate and Inquire iifto the reasons why they are not at work.
If these efforts fail to get the necessary response, I should feel it my duty '
to use the emergency powers granted me by the recent legislature for dealing '
with these problems so vital to our national welfare.

COMBINE OPERATORS MEET i

I Blickle, Agricultural Engineer,
T Raleigh, in regard to operating
combines. At this meeting Mr. I
Blickle pointed out that every
precaution should be taken to
save all the grain and not blow
part of it out of the machine with
the straw. The oiling and greas- j
j ing of the machine was stressed |
since this operation makes the
combine last longer and do more i
'efficient work. It takes less pow- |
er to pull and operate a we 11- j
greased machine than if it is dry
The combines are in full oper
ation throughout the county.
Farmers state that many of the
crops are good while others re
port a somewhat lower yield.
Some people in the northern part |
of the county state that their I
wheat is yielding around thirty i
bushels per acre.
At this meeting the combine i
operators agreed to set a uniform ,

Aid to Enemy
"Any American who wilfully
neglects to pay his taxes on
time or to invest every cent he
can in War Bonds is surely giv

service to our country. Our
