.Noi Carolina, as a state, has a rec
.ord In tie World War which will: id-
IV ...( ....... -' . i
? ways be the occasion of great and just
pride to her future generations. Every
I calf made of the Old North Stale, for
J men, money, food, manufactured prod
j ucts,' was promptly and generously
! met ; ' The war record of the boys in
the service and none hare better, has
been matched by the' women and men
? Vthiir " fighting sons. Her boys were
fn the thick of the battle and those at
home saw to it that the farms, facto-
ries, banks, business generally and ef
? forts individually, were all Jined up to
win the war. Every appeal for funds
was met and .over. Liberty Bonds, War
! Savings Stamps, the Red Cross, Y. M.
C. A. and other welfare agencies all
I received generous support from the
people of North Carolina. '
j War Is Over,
j The war is won and fpr the most
j of us It is over and done with. The
boys coming back from France cast
i off their uniform with a feeling of a
job well and completely done. It is
over for them. They have xdone all
that was asked or expected of them
f and better. But there are a few
phases of the war in which the home
I folks -took" nart. that are not as vet
! completed. v In mind is the United
J War Work Campaign which was held
i November of last year. North Caro
;lina pledged a total of $1,208,000. Of
( this grand total there has only been
jpaid in " up to this time the amount
j of $1,001,000. All; of this money was
pledged in entire good faith by the cit
jlzenship' of the state! The war is over
but only, half of the boys have been
sent home from France. ' Those that
remain are impatient and, restless
I and chafing to get back. Put yourself
! in a foreign country, with strange
1 faces and languages, bound by air iron
; discipline and with your 'thoughts
turning "ever to HOME. How would'
; you feel ? The . welfare v agencies,
which co-operated in the United War
I Work Campaign; are at the present
time doing one of the biggest pieces
of work in their history.
Helping the Boys.
Large .colleges with fulf staffs of
educators are ' helping the boys im
prove their time of waiting; scores
and scores of trained entertainers are
traveling from one end of France to
the ' ether, dispensing cheer and sun
shine and helping the boys get up
their, own shows; athletic events r are
being staged that compare with former
Olympic meets'; everything possible
is , being done at this time to make
the hours go faster for the boys who
today are' upholding the power of right
to i Germans. The war is worn and
a ced many' of the boys who helped
win it are.stiU ta Fraact adjr for
any eventuality. "We.' owe" them a
debt; the money has been pledged and
in paying. It real tme-blue patriotism
will be : shown. . :
- : - - Need For Funds.
' Secretary Jo&ephus Daniels, la ap-,
fproving the budgets of, th, War Work;
societies; made an urgent requeii to
the people of the nation' to pay in full
their pledges. Following is a combin-,
ed statement of Secretary" Newton D.;
Baker and Secretary Josephus Dan
iels. Regarding the budgeU which will
finance' theaoUjities oi"the eeyen or-;
ganlzationa presented in the campaign
from October 1st; last, to December 31,,
maf, the secretaries" declared report
from overseas confirmed 'the necessity
of "maintaining and, in some of its
aspects, 'augmenting ' this work." .- .
-In our Judgment, the statement
continued;' "the full'sum subscribed in
the campaign will be required, if these
societies are to do what the American
people desire to have them4 do in serv
ing the soldiers and sailors and the
other classes included in the original'
appeal: . Z' "' ;.. '
"Moreover, there could, ta our Judg
ment, be no wiser use of such, funds:
The demobilisation plans, so - far mt
they have been' determined, make .it
plain the work "of thedlfferent-organ-izations
will be needed for a long Ume
still, and, owing to conditions whiqh
necessarily characterize ' the period of
demobilization, this practical wslfArtj
work will be evem, more" needed Uan
ever." . . , -
, Wipe the Slatt (Jlean.
Fifteen but of a ; hundred 'counties
of the state "of North Carolina have
already reported every . cent collected
and in some cases an over-collection
is reported. v
The county chairmen and treasttiers
of, the counties not paid, upliave work;
ed as' hard and faithfully as those In
the counties which' have paid the en
tire" subscription;" in some, cases, per
haps, more so, but if the people of
their county have, not local pride, and
personal pride enough to pay their'
own subscriptions, the county cam
paign organizations cannot wipe the
slate clean for their counties.
Surely there can be nq better way
of thanksgiving and appreciation that
the war is won than to pay up all
obligations sustained for, the pros ecu'
tiok of 'the wan " Every cent pledged!
is needed for the work of the welfare
agencies. Th'e 'state of North Caro
lina can thui "make a record in , the"
United War Work Campaign similar;
to those in former drives. The sol
diers have finished their Job aa4 sa-j
ished it well. " The heme - citizenry,
should have the same satisfaction of
