Mount Airy News. Airy, April lftfc, 1*1* TO K£KP OUT OF THE ARMY. Thar* ara not many ra«n who want toptlntlM army. Moat of ua envy the nun who goea and livaa through it, but not many ara wanting to taka tha iKancaa. Wa all admire tha man who la wlllini to riak hia Ufa for hia country. Ha ia a haro, and wa all honor him. Now if a young man want* to kaap out of tha army tha way ia simple. I,at him ahow that ha ia worth more to tha rountry hare at bom* than ha would ha worth to tha rountry in tha service and ha will ha laft at home. There ara many young men who are trying to avoid tha draft, and lhay ara railing thotr friend* to •id them. In many of theae cases tha circumxtanrea are *u<h that their friend* are not able to render the assistance that ia nerer «ary to get them laft at home. The rountry need* food a* it never needed it before, and the young man who ran get buxy and »how that he ia producing a substantial amount of food, mora than enough to aupply hia own need*, will stand a good rhenre to remain at home. It ia not enough to be a farmer, for it ia very well known that many farmer* barely exiet, and that it mean* nothing to the rountry for them to barely make a living. To interest Unrle Sam at thia time a man muxt lie a producer to that extant that he nut only feed* him*elf, but produce! a Hurplua to feed other*. So important ia the subject that Local Boards are now in receipt of blank forma to be used by parenta who can aak for a furlough for a *on that he may come home and help ma'-e tha prenent crop. The govern ment muat have food. Every reaaon able effort will he made to increaae production, even to allowing young men now in ramp to return and help make the crop. Now there are many young men who are at home on deferred classift cation and awaiting their time to en ter the Mrvire. The beat minda in the world aea a strong probability of thi* war la*ting for a long time yet, pos sibly several year*, certainly for a* many aa two or three years. Now these young men who are on deferred clarification can nerve the country to mighty good effect if they will bend every energy to the production of food. It mean* no great thing to grow tobacco in th*se stirring tiire* when the world ia clamoring for bread. Tobacco is a luxury, and while it pays to grow tobacco it ia better to aae ansa energy to feed the hungry. And so if a young man wants to aid his country in winning the war the way is open right here at home with out joining the army. AN HONOR TO SURRY. Mont people nre proud of their mil itary record, that is if they have a re cord that ia creditable. For a life time we have heard the follu brae about what a large part this section played in the civil war, and how our people responded nobly to the call of the country. Future generations wj)| be able to say the same thing about the present war. The records will show that in proportion to the num ber of citizens and the number of men liable to military duty Surry has sent as much as fifty per cent more vol unteers to the army than the average rounty in the state. And this fact alone is so creditable to the citizen ship of the country as to cover a mul titude of sins of those who, for rea sons best known to themselves, are not in line with the country in the present effort to preserve human free dom. For, after all, a large part of the human race has ever tieen willing to submit to the rule of the mighty rather than contend for their rights. If all the country will play as credi table a part as Surry is playing the nation ia safe. The men in Surry county who have ■luney to spare are **pecled to take liberty bonds to the amount of |191, •OO.OO. This is the amount appor tioned to the county by those who di vide out the total amount expected from the country. Of course Surry will make good. A two weeks term of Surry Super ior court will be held in Dobson next v.ek for the trial of both civil and « i initial cases. A murder case from Forsyth in which a negro must answer to the charge of killing a whole fami ly will take up part of the term. This itN was moved here because of the intent* feeling in that county against the negro. y ik* war* lad*>U< U him.
