With a population of 35,000 New
Hanover county, during the second
Mhprtv Loan campaign, gave &,5yb
subscriptions to - .the : issue, the per
nntmlation subscrintion Dein
i:..9S, according .to report made to the
rprr-il eommitte by the Federal Re
rrvfl Bank. The Der capita sub
scription in this county was $45.26,
rvo total subscription allotted, follow
in- rhe cut that was made being over-
sul-scribed, and Liberty Loan officials
,o nnintine out that a lot of hustlin
i? coing to be necessary if a record
eoniparableto that established during
the second campaign is hung up in
the marketing of the third issu3 o
The demand upon the county during
Ihe second campaign, following the
our that was made, was $1,582,250,
and the amount actually , subscribed
ir?.s $1,739,750, which, however, was
mailer than the initial allotment was
considerably in eicess of the tota
eti'i-criotion allotment after the au
thorized cut had been made. The
leco-cl estaDiisnea in tne .saie oi sec
ond issue bonds is one. that' the coua
ty cm feel justly proud of, but does
not permit any laurel -resting acts
during the run of the third campaign.
Local officials are very much con
cerned over the manner in which the
third issue campaign is slowing up.
Subscriptions continue to filter iu
from the county; but the bonds are
nnt heme marketed in a manner that
ineets the approval if officials who
realize just what is necessary if the
pmmtv is to "zo over the top."
Officials are inclined to think that j
much could be accomplished if more
corporations would followthe course
taken by the S. H. Kress store in
buying bonds. This company, which
operates a chain of 'stores through:
out the country, are buying bonds and
local committeemen are inclined to
think that outside companies doing
business here will follow suit.
The local central committee ha3 al
so been advised that shipments of
the honor flags have been delayed,
but that they will be delivered just
as early as possible.
