North Carolina's War Savings al
lotment is 48,666,380. To October 1,
it had pledged 76.2 per cent of its,
allotment leaving 23.8 per cent yet
to be pledged. To November 1, It
had sold $19,606,727, leaving $29,059,

State is to redeem all outstanding Wax
Savings pledges by December 31 and
to secure additional sales to complete
the State's quota, which amount is
The week of November 28-Decem-ber
6 has been set apart for a com
plete War Savings Victory drive. Dur
ing this week the citizens of the
state will be called on to make the
War Savings Campaign a complete
success and thereby give the State a
100 per cent war-record. Every per
son will be called on at some time dur- J
ing this week to go to the limit of
his ability Heads of families who
are able will be asked to take $1,000
of Stamps for each member of his
family and thus qualify for member
ship in the North Carolina War Sav
ings Limit Family Society. Individu
als who are able (will be called on to
take $1,000 of stamps for themselves
andthus become members of their
County Limit Club. People who ara
not able to go the limit by the law
will be asked to go the limit of their
ability to buy all they can, pay for.
Every individual will be called on to
give to the utmost that the State may
raise its full quota by December 31
and have a 100 per cent war-record to
War Savings Stamps make. ideal
Christmas presents. There are sev
eral reasons why people should give
Thrift and War Savings Stamps as
presents at Christmas instead of the
usual Valueless cewg&ws and trinkets.
A War Sayings Stamp is .a, pfttriotle
gift. It is not to be . prized only; for
its value but for the patriotic spirit
in which it was bought and givm.
The giving of stamps does not require
the labor and material so creatlj
needed by the Government at this
time. Furthermore. rrvin& fitampt
saves the usual rush that'-makes
Christmas a burden instead of a Joy
ous occasion. This year stamps are
the most patriotic gift. Buy. ihem and
help put your State over the top in
the War Savings' Campaign.
Today North Carolina, lacks $11,
500,000 having her War Savings quota
subscribed. If every North Carolinian
who is able to do so would buy at
least one War Savings Stamp as a
Christmas present either for himself
or some other member of his fam
ily and would do this in addition to
.what, he has. already bought or pledged
to buy, the amount realised 'would be
sufficient to complete what the fitat
lacks in having its War Savings allot
ment. Therefore, it behooves very
patriotic citizen of North -Carolina tc
be patriotic and buy Waf Savlmgi
Stamps for Christmas presents.

The Traitor In The Ranks.
A spy is a contemptible person, but
traitor is a thousand times worse.
Every doctor, when he receives his
flegree, Doctor in Medicine, takes the
Hippokratic Oath. He solemnly swears
not to do certain harmful or deleteri
ous things. He swears that whatever
houses he may enter, he will go into
them for the benefit of the sick and
will abstain from every voluntary act
Df mischief or corruption.
Every good doctor lives up to that
oath. But there are rascals in all pro
fessions. Now and then a doctor for
gets his responsibility and indulges in
deliberate mischief and corruption
he acquiesces in the criminal desire of
lome family to conceal the existence
of contagious disease from the health
authorities. This is a vicious act of
corruption which ought to cancel the
doctor's license to practice in the

goodness, very few physicians Indeel
are guilty. But the rascals do get
into the profession occasionally, and
the health authorities of North Caro
lina feel bound to protect the public
against the traitors within the ranks
of the healers.
People of ordinary intelligence will
readily understand that a physician
who .is corruptible in behalf of his
patient is not to be relied upon in
other matters. A good doctor will go
far to protect the legitimate interests
of his patients, but he will stop short
of a crime always. North Carolina
wants good doctors to take care of the
people. She will have none of the
crooked kind, if the State Board of
Health can help it.
Health authorities everywhere un
hesitatingly condemn the ancient su
perstition that any disease could pos
sibly be good for a child or an adult.
The iditdic idea that a child ought to
have such diseases as whooping-cough,
measles, etc., and be over with them,

There are selfish people in every com
