THE NEWS - JOURNAL, RAEFORD. N. C.
The housewives of Raeford are
callrd upon to back-up the merchants
in the fight against black markets.
Our merchants are trying to cooper
ate with the OPA ceiling price reg
ulations and they are having a dif
ficult time. Some times they are los
ing money in doing so.
We want to cooperate with these
merchants who are conforming. They
are real heroes in this home-front
b.Utle against inflation.
There are two ways in which we
are tempted toward black market op
erations. The first, when we give or
receive ration stamps from one another-
-that is called the friendly
black market and is strictly against
The second, is when we pay higher
prices than those allowed by the re
gulated ceiling prices. Each market
has been given a copy of the com
munity ceiling prices which you may
consult to acquaint yourself with the
current legal prices. Do not mind
a.-iking to see this lost. It is your duty
tu inform yourself and it is the kind
tiling to speak to the merchant if you
are asked to pay more than these
prices. If the price is too high and
t:,e merchant is unwilling to adjust
it, to conform to the coiling, then you
c:in help win this war against in
flation by refusing to buy from him.

of men and dogs. Tradition

praise for their service. General
"Owners of dogs supplied for
