C.« WW c—, '' 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: i 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 Postwar Planning 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 ord. "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.
