PAGE TWO THE FRANKLIN PRESS AND THE HIGHLANDS MACONilAfN THURSDAY. JANUARY , 1M2 Scrap Metal Sales Aid Farmers And Red Cross " . Scrap iron and steel is .needed in. the defense program '.. .''the American Red Cross needs money for emergency work : . . farmers want to hell) in the war effort in every way possible. Dean 1. 0. Schaub, director of the- State College Extension Ser vice and agricultural ; representa tive on the executive committee of the State' Defense Council,- sug gests a way' for farmers io serve to ''Scrap the Japs- With Scrap. ' .In Hoke County, he says, a one day scrap metal collection . cam paign was conducted, and farmers brought in more thas 300,000 pounds of discarded farm machinery, trac tors, gas engines,, automobiles, fence wire, etc. They sold the .scrap to licensed dealers ait from 40 to 55 cents per 100 pounds. "Instead of pocketing the money for the scran, most of the farmers turned around and do nated the cash to the Red Cross," 1 lean- Schaub reported. "In this way, the farmers provided metal for gun and munitions, and for i he manufacture of farm machin ery, while donating to the Red Cross aiiore money than tlhey otherwise would have been able to irive." ' .' Dean Schaub suggested that the scrap metal collection campaigns -.which ..will be conducted in. other couivties this month be patterned along the same lines as the Hoke county"- drive. A theatre , in Rae ford offered free movie tickets to fanners who brought in 500 pounds or more of scrap, and other prizes were offered by merchaii'ts who advertised in a special edition of the local newspaper. - "Scrap iron- and steel is abso lutely necessary in the present method of manufacturing ,new steel," the farm ' leader, explained. "There are thousands of . tons of scrap on farms of North Carolina which should be put to use in the National war program.'; . WOMEN FROM RURAL HOMES ENTER ARMY SER VICE Women as well as men on the farms and in the villages and small towns of the country are forging to the front in America's united war effort. The 2,000,000 men in our Army are not only supported Dy we patriotic civilian work of an in creasing' number of women and girls who are rendering efficient service in their home communities, but thousands of wives, sisters and sweethearts of the men in the combat forces are enrolling for active duty. Those now engaged in full time activities are members of the Army Nurse Corps, Reserve Nurses, hostesses in the various cantonments and dieticians in the hospitals and food consultants.' in the War Department and the camps. Four-H Clubs have furnished ideal training for- many young women nqw serving in auxiliary branches of our Army, according to a recent announcement by au thorities in Washington. Conspic uous among the 4-H Clubbers now working for Uncle Sam . is Mrs. Meryl p. Stone, designated as en associate of Miss Mary Barber, food consultant to the Secretary of War. It is Mrs. Stone's Job to as sist with menus for the soldiers In the camps and in the field. She will sample the "chow" and will be available for conferences at the Army Bakers and Cooks schools. Mrs. Stone declares that the foundation for her present post was built during her 4-H Club days in her home town of Black Earth, I Hiiiilinaii i E f ' - - Photo by U S. Bitrnal Corpf! MRS. MERYL P. STONE Wisconsin. (That quaint name, by the way, cemes from the dark, rich soil in the valley of the Wisconsin river.) A 4-H Club flourished in her community and Mrs. Stone was one of its active members. Under her leadership the Black Earth or-' ganization won honors at a county ', fair for skill in sewing. After high school Mrs. Stone entered the University of Wiscon-) sin to major in borne economics. . Following her graduation she: served an internship as a future dietician at the University of Michigan and established a train- ' ing course in dietetics for student nurses at a Detroit hospital. ' Going to New York she joined the staff of a large commercial concern and continued her work in preparing recipes and balancing their caloric contents Tor hotels. schools, hospitals and other insti tutions. Romance and marriage came for the former Wisconsin 4-H Club girl and last summer with her lawyer husband, she moved to Washington, where she continued . active in her chosen field. The 6tory of her career is not unlike that of many other women on duty for our Army, as shown by the files of the War Department. Four-H Club girls recruited from various sections of the country have answered the call to service and are giving the Government the benefit of their skill, thrift and efficient training. As home dem onstration agents, many young (women from rural communitiea are strengthening the civilian forces, and in other fields they have shown resourcefulness and initiative in their patriotic efforts for the na tion's defense.

States Marine Corps on the front page of every paper showing their exploits in the Pacific war zone, many may have wondered what it 1 is that makes the Marine Corps play such a prominent part. Through the years since the birth of our nation, America's best trained military men have been United States Marines. The high type of military ef ficency reflected through the phys ical and mental alertjness as well as cleanliness and neatness, of Marines can be traced directly to the thorough yet considerate, train ing received under competent non commissioned officers, at the Ma nne A.orps training station on Parris Island, S. C. Marine Corps recruits reach military perfection soon after leav ing "boot" camp, where recruits spend their probationary training period. There new Marines find their non-commissioned officers strict in every detail. The purpose of the exacting "boot"' camp rou tine is soon realized by the re cruit who, within a few short weeks of rigorous training, be comes an able rifleman and fa miliar with the manual of arms, military environment and other basic requirements of the Marine Corps. Unlike the hard boiled Marine sergeants of fiction and movies, the new Marine soon discovers that non-commissioned officers are stern yet friendly and anxious to assist new Marines solve oroblems New Marines soon learn to look to these seasoned veterans as tnends to be sought - for instruc tions and advice. Non-commissioned officers of the Marine Corps have earned repu tations as top notch military ex perts because of the vear thev nave spent training troops. These sKinea soldiers of the sea are re sponsible to their officers for the performances of their mn.
