King Goes Over War Bond Quota (Reported) During the Third War Loan Drive, King has gone over her quota with a bang. Under tlu sponsorship of the Woman's Club j along with the P.-T. A., and burl iness organizations of town, the drive seems to have been carrie-J out effectively. Enthusiasm was : prevalent throughout the entire ! period of time. Much of this must be attributed to the school children, who have shonw 100 per cent cooperation. Tod Say, more than ever, we feel the true value of our youth—the men of tomor row. We also wish to thank the par ents for their contributions to ward making us go even beyond our goal. To you, committeemen, pupils, and parents, we owe the immense pleasure of announcing $17,000 toward the funeral of anything that tries to down democracy.

Approaching- Nuptials At Miami, Fla., Of Former Danbury Boy i Invitations have been received in Danbury as follows: "Mr. and Mrs. William Dicker-1 son request the honour of your , presence at the marriage of their daughter Lillian to William Bev erly Christian on Sunday, the tenth of October at six-thirty o'clock in the evening at Central Baptist Church, Miami, Florida."

C., writes in the Winston-Salem Journal that he wants crop control abolished. He says the farm ! ers are "in a spot." Does Mr. Watson refer to the 20 "spots" or the j ' 50 "spots" or the 100 "spots" now so promiscuous ' ly handled by the grinning tobacco growers? Mr. Watson goes on to castigate the govern - | ment bureaucrats for their pernicious control | regulations. Does Mr. Watson not know that these control regulations were imposed by the farmers them . selves by crushing majorities? Does the correspondent not know that without i control, wild over-production would make the cultivation of tobacco unprofitable again? Or perhaps he refers to the "ceiling." And is he not aware that without a ceiling, prices exacted by tobacco, meat, shoes, rents, butter, plow points, gun cartridges, clothing, sugar, coffee, gasoline, etc., would produce an inflation that would quickly become a national; tragedy? With tobacco averaging 43 cents, can't farmer.-. ;be sati-fkd in a small way, especially when tho world is staggering with unprecedented terror; land stiffen m v and .'Vnt'i? ! ' i 1 Mr. Watson closes with this: "There is a remedy, and I do hope the poor far jmer will use the hatchet and throw those in pow er out who make such laws against the welfare of the farmers." If Mr. Watson believes the people have so little business sense as to go back to the conditions of the early '3o's when there was no crop control, and when Will George marketed his crop at SI.OO a barn (picture of this dollar now framed and on exhibition), we fear his hopes will be dashed to the earth. | History of the Old Court House Bell About 87 years ago Forsyth > J county was cut off from Stokes, and the county seat of Stokes was removed from Germanton to Dan bury. The court house that was buiit here was then graced by the I old court house bell taken from j the Germanton building. | | This bell saw service on the old court house at Danbury for about 1 50 years, when the present court! j house in Danbury was erected. A new and larger bell was then in ' stalled, and the old bell was sold to Robt. P. McAnally and remov- \ ed to" his farm in eastern Stokes, j Later Mr. McAnally bought a i I farm near Richmond, Va. He car | iried the old bell with him and kept it on his Virginia plantation until his death some 25 years ago. I It was then purchased by C. R. I jWall of Beaver Island, Stokes i county, a brother-in-law of Mr. J McAnally, who brought it back to Stokes and installed it on a church near his home, where it is now. Mr. Wall, who was in Danbury Monday, told the Reporter the history of this old bell, which is J very interesting. No one knows I how old the bell was when first used on the old Germanton court | house. ■> « - - I Price Adjustment Payment To Be Made To Milk Producers ; The War Food Administration has announced that a price ad-1 justment payment will be made to j all milk producers to meet the j difference in dairy feed cost since I Sept., 1942.
