PAGE TWO THE FRANKLIN PRESS AND THE HIGHLANDS MACON IAIN THURSDAY, NOV. 26, 1942 Putting Our Home On A War Basis By Mrs. Estelle T. Smith, Assistant to State Home Demonstration Agent, and Chairman, Women's Division of the State Salvage Committee (Mrs. Smith made this address recently to the Home Demonstra tion Club it Macon County. We are printing it in part. Editor.) Putting our home on a war basis means first that it is a V-Home-an insignia that denotes we in this home are fighting; we know this war will he easy to lose and hard to win; we mean to win it; there fore, we solemnly pledge all our energies and all our resources to fight for freedom. We are personally carrying the fight on the home front in these ways: (1) By following the in structions of the air raid warden in order to protect our home against attack by air; (2) by con serving food, clothing, transporta tion and health, in order to hasten an unceasing flow of war mater ials to our men at the front; (3) by salvaging essential materials in order that they may be converted to immediate war use; (4) by re fusing to spread rumors designed to divide our nation ; (S) by buy ing War Savings Stamps and Bonds regularly. We are doing these things be cause we know we must win this We want to do these things be cause we want to do our job on the home front with the same un selfish spirit that our boys are displaying every day in the air, oil the land, on the sea. We have made up our minds to accept in good faith and cheer-, fully whatever our government feels we should do or do without. Ire this war a home, like bat tleship, must ready itself fir ac tion and every member il . the ". family in the home must take his battle station. This not only is im portant, it is necessary, if we ore to win. Do You Know The Enemy? By our insignia, V-Home, we serve notice that we are person ally carrying the fight to the enemy ; but do you know the enemy ? Are you able to "recognize him, regardless of what his dis guise may be a . You are thinking of the enemy as being off our coast in a sub marine ; or, im a long-distance bomber with charts or our target areas; or, ainong us as a saboteur and a rumor-monger. And yet, he is nearer va,n that. He is in every home iiv America, disguised as waste, inefficiency, disunity, in security, ill-health, plotting to weaken the home front and there by we;.'en the production front and; the fighting front to decrease the total striking power of this nation. ... What she does is important her help is indispensable. The fu ture holds for us the opportunity to make, this work of ours civiliz ed once more. The future of civil ization, of Christianity, freedom itself cannot be saved without women. There is immediate and desperate work to be done now by women. We will do it badly if we ourselves are narrow and un developed, physically, mentally, morally. Women have a peculiar gift for which humanity today stands in dire need, the develop ment of the power of mind and heart and soul, which shall help to restore the waste places. In time of war, the U. S. rweds us strong. Health is our most im portant natural resource. Better health means actually adding more working and fighting men. The American people have been shocked to learn ir some rural districts as many as half the draftees for the present war were rejected as physically unfit. This disconcerting fact called attention to the acute need for better health services and for making available to those with defective eyes, teeth teet, the means tor corrective treatment. The neer! for physical fitness is also emphasized by the present day requirement of eigh teen civilian workers to maintain one man at the front, as com pared with five in World Wrar I. Basic Value Of Health These wartime necessities mere ly serve to underline the basic value of health, which is of equal importance in peace, although it is more apt to be overlooked. This need for improved health furniihei an opportunity to supplement the expanding public health services with voluntary work by local groups. One such group took the correction of defective teeth as a cooperative project. The four dentists irii the community agreed that, as their professional contri bution to national defense, they would contribute one-third of the cost of dental work. The group undertook to raise funds to cover another thir, with the individual patients paying the remaining third. Such a set-up might be repeated in othe communities and in con nection with otther types of phy sical handicaps, since General Her shey reported from the first draft 200,000 boys deferred because of bad teeth and 100,000 because of bad eyes. A factor, equally important, is personal attention to Healthful Living. Physical fitness is one of the most important cogs in our machine for the worker, for the farmer. It is important therefore that he and his family keep well. The longer hours and heavier work these days make us more suscep tible to illness. This is serious in view of the scarcity of doctors and nurses. Four hundred million working hours were lost last year because of illness and accidents, too many of which were in. the home Sixty four times as many hours as lost by strikes, of which we hear so much. Human Erosion Much has been said of soil ero sion far worse is human erosion. A poorly nourished person cannot do a job well any more than poor soil oars produce good crops. In tests made not long ago in an aircraft factory, it was found that 48 .percent of the workers were deficient in Vitamin A; 21 percent in Vitamin Bl; and 42 percent in Vitamin C. Since vita mins lead the usable elements of food we eat to the parts of the body where they do the most good, such vitamin deficiencies are ser ious. It means that the bodies of these workers were not properly assimilating their food. Under these conditions they could not feel their best nor do their best work. Health 'or Victory, or H for V Clubs ,.ave been organized for famines of war plant workers. Get ti.ig enough sleep and exercising .in open air, so that we may have a race of . Americans who are as good as their machines, air cratt, guns, and tanks. Conservation of health is not all our home must conserve food, clothin.g, and transportation. . Are we, as housewives, doing our part as K. P. kitchen police? "Give us this day our daily bread," is the Christian's prayer "Give me bread" is the hoarder's prayer, as well as the pagan's. "Me and my wife, Brother John, and his wife; Us four and no more," exemplifies the selfishness which dominates so many lives. Salvage Materials Every home should salvage es sential materials im order that they may be converted to immediate war uses. So check over your at tic, basement, garage, and closets for salvagable materials. That means you. It means me. Iron and other metals, tin cans, . to make the steel, aluminum, brass, copper, lead, tin parts, of guns, planes, tanks, ships; old rubber to make new rubber for planes, tanks, bat tleships; fat and grease to make explosives. Have a regular place to save Scrap in your home a can for fat and grease, separate boxes for rubber, metals, tin cans. Don't say it's hard. Nothing we can do is hard in comparison to what our boys are doing. So get in the scrap and "Let the Lads and Lassies Help You." This is not the first tough time the world has known. In 1813, the time of Napoleon the aged and middle-aged abandoned hope, sur rendered in spirit to the conqueror While the aged despaired, youth went confidently forward planned a career, fell in love, married. It is needless for me to tell you that we, the women of the United States, are the most privileged group on earth ; the most pro tected; the richest; 'the freest group. Neither is it necessary for me to tell you that the women in Europe or occupied territory have lost all for which they have fought for the past 100 years the vote work desired education ; that 19 million Soviet women are working in the fields, 11 million in industry. Uncle Sam has said. We cart win the war without the women and their reply has been "Here we are, Uncle, what can we Do? Will we rate as an E worker for Excellence, Example, and Expecta tion in Putting our Home on a War Basis ? I have every reason to expect an excellent job as an example of American womanhood at its best. i Ten out of 13 Scrap ) Atfl ) Victory Pennants in This State Won by YItJ!'"". f W.NsC.GOUNTIES. sSMmm viPl N0RTH Carolina I f JJw SCRAP DRIVE. p VX BxP COUNTIES OVER.
