A Letter Out Of The Pant
A quarter of a century ago, David R. Coker,
renowned agriculturist, addressed a letter to
the farmers of the South. It had to do with
World War I. The letter, carrying able advice
and basic suggestions, is applicable with few
minor changes to World War II Addressed to
the Southern Farmer, the letter reads:
"Our country is at war. To insure the safety
and freedom of the world we must win. We
must furnish men?possibly millions of them
?but we must also furnish billions of dollars
and millions of tons of feedstuffs for our own
armies and those of our Allies. It is the literal
truth that the safety of the Nation depends on
the American farmer and the American house
wife. If they produce liberally and consume ec
onomically, the necessary food and the neces
sary money will be available. Our President has
called upon all to step into the ranks and do his
or her part toward the success of the war. Ev
ery patriot will respond and those who do not
may be termed slackers or traitors. Every farm,
every home and every business should be so
conducted during the term of the war as to be
of the greatest possible assistance to the gov
"The average Southern farmer has in pros
pect for this fall a greater net profit than he
ever before enpoyed. What will he do with it?
Will he show prudence and patriotism, pay his
debts, invest liberally in liberty bonds, contrib
ute to the Red Cross and other charitable war
agencies, respond to all other patriotic calls
made on him by the Nation and the State Coun

those emergencies which the future is almost
sure to bring forth? Or will he launch upon var
ious speculations and extravagances which will
make the temporary prosperity a curse rather
than a blessing?

prices of fertilizers (especially nitrates) sug
gest an increase in livestock, the universal em
ployment of cover crops and the saving and
utilization of all animal manures, leaves and
woods turf on the farm. Diversified farming
and a reduction of the cotton acreage must
come in North and South Carolina to prevent
great disaster from the approaching boll wee
"In order to do his full duty to his business
and his Nation, the farmer should look the sit

steps to meet it. Both money and thought will
be required to meet the new conditions and
the surplus dollars must be put aside and wise
What is the American Red Cross doing for
That question was answered the other day
bv no less an authority than Major General
Russell E. Hartle, commander of the United
States Forces in Northern Ireland, in an address
at the opening of the new Red Cross club in
Belfast. Speaking of the new club, General Har
"It is a place where the enlisted man of the
armed forces can enjoy his friends, sleep in
clean comfortable beds, secure good food ? a
place where he will find a friendly interest in
lum as an individual in a homelike atmosphere.
No effort is being spared to compensate for the
man's separation from his home.
"It would be a mighty satisfying experience
to the Americans who have contributed to the
Red Cross if they could see what their dollars
have accomplished, together with the unselfish
contributions of time and effort that have been
given voluntarily by the fine group of Ulster
citizens who have made the club possible. It is
nut only a tribute to the wonderful hospitality
which has been extended to Americans here,
but is indicative of the understanding which
draws together our peoples in a great common
"The club will be a joy to the man who will
use it; further, its effects will be reflected into
his home, where though removed by thousands
of miles, his loved ones will know that he is
the object of this splendid effort. All who have
contributed to its creation may feel justly

the American Red Cross and its work
