M. LONG ?ur P??t baa been organized and in operation just a little over two months. Our volunteer-list has grown to 70. This number, in a community of only 500, with a large part of that 500 children and colored people, is one of which we are proud, Practi cally every family is represented' several families are one hundred per cent volunteers. Our watches are four hours long, but there are no complaints, and some take extra watches just to feel that they are helping more to win this war. even if in a small way. Sixty of the volunteers have watched will over the 25 hours re quired to win an arm-band, and some have over sixty hours to their cred it Our chief observer has ordered these bands and plans to make the presentations soon. Week before last an army plane made a forced landing within three miles of us. We regretted missing the opportunity to send a "red flash," but were glad the land w as such that the pilot was able to make his own report. Mrs. T. B. Slade, who was on watch at the tune, did however re port the plane's passage and was questioned in regard to its direc tion, etc. But we still wish we had seen it land. A spot in front of the post was se lected this week for the local Vic tory Salvage Pile. It is good to see this pile grow; for we know that the more we can collect to knock heck out of A. Hitler and his fellow yellow Aryans, the Nipponese sons ol Heaven, the less likelihood there will be that we shall ever send in the flash, "Enemy planes over head."

Two observa tions were included, first, few peo pie are busy harvesting, and second, large numbers are still not enlisted. He climaxed his message with the ap peal to begin today, and to go on with the assurance that a glorious harvest could be reaped. Dr. J W Kincheloe, of Rocky Mount climaxed the morning ses sion with the sermon which had as Its basic theme, The Need of Evan gelism and the Kind of Evangelism Required in This Day. TIh- hearts of the people were stir red as Dr. Charles Leonard, the fa ther-in-law of the former pastor of the Memorial Baptist Church, said his goodbyes, and staled that he v ould in a short while be on his way V5 Chma Hls daughter, Mrs. J H. Smith, br. ught a not-to-be-for gotten message in song. Mr J. C. Hough, of the Kennedy Home, presented the cause of the orphan child, and a trio from the home sang. The highlight of the association was the address of L Bun Olive, a former missionary to China, just returned after eight months of in ternment by the Japanese in China He gave a graphic account of his ex periences while in the hands of the Japanese, and stated that person ally he suffered no hardships at the hands of the Japanese The worst feature, he added, was that all means of communication was taken away .and they were entirely de pendent upon the Japanese and street gossip gathered by their serv ants for knowledge of what was tak ing place in the outside world The Japanese caused them very great anxiety by giving elaborate details or Japanese victories, and the de struction of allied armies and na vies. When the time came the Jap anese were quite willing to return them to America Mr. Olive told of the destruction of Chinese cities wrought by Japanese bombs. How ever, he said that from whatever places the Japanese were driven out the Chinese immediately began the work of restoration. He gave a great picture of the prospects and the growth of the Christian religion jmtong?the^ Chinese and stated.

The first attack featured demolition bombs, and the second one made on Wednesday fired the base and destroyed three seaplanes.
