Rabbit, Quail Hunting
Seasons Closed Feb. 10;
Fishing licenses On Sale
Stokes Game Protector Geo. A
Barr announced that the huntin;
season on rabbit and quail closed
Feb. 10. All other seasons are
closed except on fox with dog:
only. Attention is also called to
the laws prohibiting Sunday hunt
ing, or hunting turkey or deer in
Stokes county at any time.
N. C. fishing licenses for 194"
are on sale at Booth's Cafe, Dan
t bury; Sisk's Hdwe., King; and
Tuttle's Hdwe., Walnut Cove.
Stokes "county residents do no',
have to have licenses to fish i
StoSes county, but, Barr said, r
was almost impossible to get Da i
River or the Hanging Rock Lake
stocked with fish until the coun
ty passes a county fishing law.
The Game Protector said as it is
we can fish without lisense hi
Stokes, but have no fish. Barr
expressed his opinion of a county
law to buy a SI.IO license an.!
catch fish. He said Stokes resi
dents pay Virginia about sfoo a
year to fish in New River. The
County can pass a law and tV
Department of Conservation will
stock Dan River so residents can
fish at home. However, lie con
cluded, the Department world
probably want to be assured thn*
some protection would
be necessary against fire near th
river, as forest fires kill more fis'i
than fisherman catch.

Rural Bond Sales
Effective Slep In s
WASHINGTON, D. C—Secretary of
Agriculture Claude R. Wickard today
called on American farmers to invest
all "extra" dollars in War Bonds during
the Sixth War Loan beginning Novem
ber 20 as an "effective step in postwar
planning" for rural America.
Directing his appeal "To the Farm
People of America," Secretary Wick
ard said, "the farm people of this
country have an outstanding war rec
"It still takes a lot of money to
finance the war, even though we are
winning. The single task of supplying
the Pacific theater is a tremendous
undertaking. Add to that the equip
ment which was needed on the inva
sion coast of France, the supplies that
are required now to knock down the
walls of HiUer's Germany, and the
total is staggering. So our job here at
home is by no means over, just as the
war on the fighting front isn't ov.r
Our homefront responsibility is two
fold: One is to stick to our job s.nd do
it well until total victory is i. uie
other is to buy War Bonds. •
"The farm people of this coin "rv
have an outstanding war record. 1 -i".-
have achieved a production miracle :.•> i
the face of wartime difficulties. Their
bond-buying record is good, too, as in
dicated by the fact that farmers and
their families purchased more than one
and a quarter billion dollars' worth of
bonds in 1943. This figures out at about
10 per cent of their net income.
"This Sixth War Loan campaign is
the biggest yet for agriculture, but
never before has agriculture had so
many dollars that could be put into
War Bonds. The record production of
farmers, coupled with favorable com
modity pries, has pushed their income
up to an all-Ume high level. The in
vestment of those extra, inflationary
dollars in War Bonds would be the
most effective step in postwar planning
Rural America c.'uld take.
"Stake your share in the future—
■hare your stake in the war."
