1 take this opportunity to thank the many citi
zens of Martin and adjoining counties in mak
ing it possible for me to receive this Merit Award
from the War Production Board.
This award wan given me for increasing the shipment of scrap iron and metal by
one-third over a six-months period. It would have been impossible for me to re
ceive this honor unless the patriotic citizens of Martin and adjoining counties
had not put forth special effort in gathering and bringing to me an increased
quantity of iron and metal.
Let's keep the good work going, as our boys at
the front need all the assistance that
we can give them.

Second Prise?Scrap for Freedom
Take time to go from door to door,
Until the scrap you find no more;
In attac, basement, and the yard.
The work will not bo very hard.
Look here and there.
Get all the metal you can find,
Lead, steel, and iron of any kind;
We need them all.
We'll fight our battle on land and sea,
We'll fight till we win victory.
Till Axis fall.
?Mrs. Eagles' Sixth Grade.
Third Prize?Save Your Scrap
Hoys and girls come with me,
Save your scrap to keep us free.
Men and women you come too,
Save our flag, red, white and blue.
Throw your scrap into the fight,
Ere you go to sleep tonight.
If you wait another day,
The Japs may take your land away.
We all want to win this wa^,
Peace is what we're fighting for.
Help our boys be brave and true,
They will serve and save us too.
