I have not right to con demn any one group, but we cannot win this war unless we first declare war against our own selfishness." The third enemy within our bor ders. according to the speaker, is disunity, "and we must declare war against it if we are to win. I do not mean that all people must think alike. I am not against th?- individual who would express his own opin ion. What would have happened if all people in England had agreed with Chamberlain" If they had agreed to agree. England would still have a Chamberlain if there were an England today Do not declan war on disunity by throttling the press, freedom of speech., The dis unity that can destroy us is a divi sion of purpose. There must be single and definite unity of purpo if we are to preserve these United States Our weakness is not a lack of leadership, and 1 admire West ?brook Peggler. bitter critic of Pres ident Roosevelt, who after Pearl Harbor admitted he was wrong I have every reason to thank the Al mighty for the leadership we have in Roosevelt Our weakness is found in poor followers. We have gotten all tangled up in our own web of selfishness." Continuing he said that our fourth enemy was short-sightedness, "and must guard against it." Dr. Me Donald declared. "If in our zeal to win this war. and we must win it, we destroy some of the basic liber ties that have been growing in past years, we might find when the war is over that we have lost them for ever. There are those who would lay low some of our basic institutions, institutions-that are necessary to otir way of life, by lowering expenses for education The winning of this war also means the winning of the peace. We must build agencies <>t democ racy. and now is the time to strength en our schools and enrich the curri culum. For, in so doing we are lay ing the framework for handling the peace.

Civilian America Is To Sacrifice For An All-Out War Effort (Continued from page one) ernment, short Of depriving our arm ed forces of the materials these forces need to beat the Axis, is doing every thing it can to see that no one lacks tools with which to produce food to eat and clothes to wear, fuel to burn and a stout roof over his head. The government Is controlling prices to guard us against ruinous inflation. The government is trying to assure tires and autos to fulfill essential services in every commun ity The government 'is seeing to it that there will be enough farm ma chinery in good repair to take care of the all important 1942 crops. Here's the way the 1942 program for farm equipment has been han dled by the Office for Production Management's priorities division . The basic problem was to mesh this program with the Department of Agriculture's program for food; to -provide more machinery where it will be needed and to curtail pro duction where?as with wheat?the agricultural plan calls for smaller crops. It s obvious that since farm equip ment is manufactured entirely of ma terials vital to the armed forces the kinship between tank and tract or is apparent?the problem had to be considered cautiously. There was a second factor, too?the certainty that many more civilian plants must What the OPM has done is to hold down in materials for new machinery (to about 83 per cent of the 1940 lev el) while raising the quantity ear marked for repair parts manufacture to approximately 150 per cent of the 1940 output Repair, wherever pos sible. is the thing, and the OPM has asked that farmers begin these re pairs as quickly as possible. Hires the way it works out. The agricultural program, for example, -culls for increased production of pork and lard, milk and eggs, in 1942. And so new machinery used to produce these foodstuffs will be available in greater quantity than machinery for raising and harvesting wheat, be cause the agricultural plan calls for a 16 per cent reduction in wheat acreage. The tire rationing program is an other example of the government's effort to keep essential services functioning under conditions of all out war. The Japanese topk away the tires from our pleasure cars when they blocked our Pacific import lanes But that isn't going to ham Ikt farm Work You can still.get ttrao for farm vehicles -if you really need them The physician can still get tires, and the veterinarian. And the folks who decide whether or not these tires are needed will be, in most cases, neighbors?the local gar ageman, and a local rationing board probably no fuilhrr dlSTantThart the County Seat As for that car you use for trips to town. Price Administrator I^eon Henderson makes several suggestions about that He suggests you drive slowly, because fast driving burns up rubber, he suggests you double up w ith a friend when you can, thus making one set of tires do the work ordinarily done by two; he suggests >ou be careful not to scrape against curbs and take it easy over the bumps Remember, too, that tires which have been recapped or re tic.tded often last almost as long as new-ones, and cost a lot less Anyone who can think back to the last war and the inflation which came of it can't help but realize that it is as necessary to control farm prices in wartime as it is to control prices in industry. In 1918 the U. S. farmers had an income 24 per cent above their buying power in 1913 even allowing for the high price of goods But by 1922 the slump which followed the inflation had carried farm incomes way below the 1913 level. Tlie Price Administrator whose job is to see that everybody gits a fair deal and also to stand guard against such evils as anoth er inflation, has indicated that there may be upward revision of prices on cretain agricultural commodities un-! der the Price Control Act 'to bring existing standards into line with special standards set up for farm products The maximum price of "..h'T SU,fiar aIri'ady has been raised 24 cents per 100 pounds.

Draft Board Chairman R H. Good mon explained that plans for the reg i istrations must be submitted to the | State Board for approval before they can be formally announced. By this action, the board, it is believed, will | ask for the establishment of conven ient registration places in every county, meaning that instead of han dling the registration in Martin at four centers, it will be handled pos sibly in nearly every one of the ten townships. Learning of the tentative plans for handling the registration in four centers, some few citUens have sug gested that it would be more con venient to handle the registration in possibly at least four other districts. Fairly definite plans for the Febru ary 16th registration are to be sub mitted on or before next Tuesday to the State Selective Service Board for approval or rejection. If the plans are approved, arrangements will be made with citizens to handle the reg istration. A special school of instruc tion will be held on or about Febru ary 10th instead of on the 12th as the county board first proposed. Persons 20 years of age and oth ers under 65 who have not hereto fore registered will be required to sign up for possible military serv ice. Drive For Ail Old Scrap Iron Going Forward In County (Continued from page one) der, and the dealer's profit in han dling the material is held to a low minimum. It was decided to handle the collection of the metals through established dealers after it was learn ed that the aluminum scrap drive did not carry to a successful end. The dealers are given the responsibility of separating and sorting the deliv eries, the operators of the blast furnaces explaining that mixed ship ments of iron, steel, brass, copper and other metals are almost worth less because facilities are hardly adequate for grading the vast amounts of materials moving to the plants. The important thing in the drive for scrap metal is to make it avail able. How it is to be done is of no great importance; the material is badly needed if the war effort is to be maintained, and all Martin Coun ty farmers and others are urgently requested to deliver every available piece to the dealers. Farmers are again urged to an ticipate their future machinery needs and place orders with their dealers as soon as possible.

Malta, the British base in the Mediterranean, has been bombed continuously for almost 100 hours this week, but the stronghold, bat tered and torn, is still in the hands of the British.

It can be said that the draft board has made its every decision only af ter minute examination of every fact and that no high ratings were hand ed out until every member was sat*-; isfied Slicli action was right and proper. Realizing that many boys have already been sent from this county, the board, however, is not shirking its responsibilities when it comes to sending those young men who have no material claim to re main at home. There are baffling cases before the board, but the following is one that has been referred to President Roose velt directly by the registrant, it has been unofficially learned. Ac cording to reports coming from the registrant's home community, he is the father of two illegitimate chil dren He did not provide for the chil dren or their mother until just a short time ago when he married their mother and established a home ap parently to "buck" the draft. It could not be learned definitely, but the draft board is understood to have ruled that the man accepted depend ency to defeat the purpose of the draft and he was placed in the 1-A classification. Then there is a case where a hus band has deserted his wife and chil dren and accepted a common-law mistress. He does not support his le gal wife and children, but he does support the other woman and his children by her. Should the man be sent to the Army? That's just an other baffling question the draft board has to answer. Farm Life Opens Gym With Victory After battling the elements on open eourts for -year the Farm Life School moved its sports program in to its new gymnasium last Tuesday evening when the basketball team opened the play house with a victory over Oak City. Handled by private contract, con struction work was started on the building the latter part of Novem ber and was virtually completed in record time.
