THE DANBURY REPORTER Established 1872 Volume 72 Danbury, N. C., Thursday, Sept. 16, 1943 * * * Old Belt Tobacco Markets Open Monday, September 20th The tobacco markets of this belt will open next Monday, Sep tember 20, with every prospect of high prices for the fanners. The Stokes county crop is all in, and is an excellent one. The averages are expected to be at j least as high as they were in the i 1942 sales. News from the eastern belts re port high averages except in • some cases owing to inferior quality offerings. It is expected that notwith- . standing government experts an well as home authorities have ad vised particularly against crowd- j ing the markets, that the open- ' ing of the sales will see the usual ' big initial offerings on the wars-! house floors. Many Stokes county farmers are ready with loads, while some j have even this early reached the floors for the first sales.

AN EDITORIAL DON'T LET THE BOYS DOWN The immortal Fifth Army of the United States is engaged now in a death grapple with the Ger mans in Southern Italy. Commingled with our gallant forces are many j | North Carolinians and possibly quite a number of our Stokes county boys. ' I They are making a record of heroism that will be read with pride and enthusiasm in the future 1 pages of history. Can we afford to let these boys down that they may not be equipped and armed and fed to en jable them to fight on to victory? Can we afford to let these noble boys, who are making the great sacrifice, know that Stokes 'county did not do her part in the great Victory Loan? I We cannot —we will not fail. Our armies need planes and more plane?, tanks, bombs, ships and food. With these they will not fail. ! Every person in Stokes county should do his or her part by buying all the bonds they can pay for. It does not mean giving, but' LENDING to the ' government. i It is the safest investment in the world today, j and the most attractive buy. Do you know what will happen if the nation fails to raise the Third War Loan? I It will mean that the Government must resort to ! issuing new money, which means INFLATION Inflation means for instance, $25.00 for a pair ,of shoes, $5.00 for a pound of meat, $200.00 for a suit of clothes, etc. Lend your money to the Government and while keeping down inflation, you help the boys ■in the army, navy -and air forces press on to I victory.
