"Pray send me something to eat, for you know that I am al- tiitw.ways hungry, so much that I cannot sleep." This was the prayer ' ''"of an llyear-cld German child in Zwickau in the Russian zone. Miwr , . , j. Fortunately, this child's prayer was answered because of a rftvpa':ticular church child-feeding program made possible jn that '""'"city End elsewhere by donations of American churches. But there are thm.s:nds of other small voices crying daily for food in Europe iuln without answer. To still these voices and to hrlp restore the desire to live to .oung.'itcrs who perhaps have never in all their lives had their um. hunger completely satisfied, churches in this country are spon soring the Christian Rural Overseas program, CROP, in Entire populations in some cities and provinces are desner- Pately in want. Now prisoners of war are returning from other countries end those from Russia are in filthy rags and so undcr ') fed that their health is permanently damaged. A Red Cross work- '; "Tr, seeing them leave a transport train, described them as "hu man wrecks, hollow-yed, hollow-checked, painfully trailing them selves along, covered with ulcers, still showing marks of a hurdly recovered attack of typhus, the living picture of sorrow and mis ery." ' Germany and other nations, still in the throes of war's after niath, are not sitting idle, begging and awaiting food from Amer- . ica. Through ellorts of I'rotesiant territorial churches Hilfswerk was horn in Germany in 1845. With headquarters at Stuttgart, Hilfswerk administers relief throughout the country. In 194(i, despite terrible poverty, and even when supplies from abroad started coming in. Germans contributed to the less fortunate in their nation more than the total amount sent in from Jtside. g. Church relief agencies in Sweden and Switzerland were the irst loreign supporters of Hilfswerk, and help later came from lAmerica, South America. liridin, Canada, and Australia. In contributing food to the CROP train we're not doling out from our horn of plenty to whining beggars who have no potential ity of ever pulling their share of the load in our world. We're working together with them, laying with hope, foundations for a future unmarred by war. Food for the CROP box car in this county is being collected now. Neglecting or forgetting to contribute means that other youngsters, like the German child in Zwickau, cry themselves to sleep and awake jgnin with tears on their clucks we can dry those tears. (Portions of the above were tjken from the Decem ber issue of Highroad). 1 Easiness Section Ready for Santa Beaufcrt Junior Women's club and all those who cooperated with them in decorating Front street deserve a red and green Mffeather in their cap. ' At the moment, colored' lights have net bcea. w laced along Jurner street but there will be-WCTtrtttrtrH'Mn- promised, as "ebon irs more electric cord and IwrWlifP ubtalued. The Junior Woman's club has beautified the colored strings of light by draping the cords with Spanish moss. As usual,, in projects of this type, perhaps the well-known "one or two" did the work, but the group as a whole initiated the project. The town looks pretty as a Christmas card and again we say, "Thanks." 1 In The Good Old Days THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO Town commissioners met Mon day night find set the last Tuesday of the month as the date for hold ing a speciftl election on the ques tion of bonding a dredging opera tion for Taylor's Creek. Queen Street was opened to Front Street. While regretting the passing of the boardwalk, the pa per approved the progress and hoped someday to see Front Street extended down to Lennoxville. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO The electric current In Beaufort had been discontinued during day time, making it particularly diffi cult at the newspaper office where Job and newspaper printing had to be done at night. Capt. Bonner Willis, aboard the Chas. S. Wallace III, brought in 105 toi of menhaden. TEN YEARS AGO There was a story on the front page of the paper about the trials and tribulations of the local Bolt ers. Not Only did they have slices, hooks and the rough to contend with, crows were stealing their balls. The lead editorial in the paper commented on the need of a wider and deeper harbor for Beaufort. FIVE YEARS AGO Mrs. Luther Hamilton, Mrs. C. 0. Holland and Mrs. Julia a Hamil ton were assisting in recruiting Carteret county women for the WAVES. Dr. and Mrs. Edgar A. Jones arrived in Beaufort. Dr. Jones was the new rector for St. Paul's Epis copal church. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Editor of THE NEWS-TIMES Beaufort, N. C. Dear Sir: This is a plea for help; a call for action on the part oi all Ocraco kers. The roads at Ocracoke have been anything for us to brag about, but during the past few years they have become nothing more than water holes. After the least bit of rain it becomes Impossible for the children to get to school without the aid of knee boots. We feel that this deplorable condition is the re sult of the extra duty imposed on the roads by the heavy Navy ve hicles during the war. During the past Democratic primaries we heard a lot about the improvement of rural roads. We feel there is a chance that Ocracoke might be included in Governor-elect Scott's program of "all weather roads." Many of you will say that we have heard promises but hove seen little action. It has been said that we should be content to stay out on this sand pit and lend color to the state. We believe the time for action is now) now is the time for us to speak up. We are not asking for too much when we plea for a small amount of sand and crushed rock for our roads. We invite all friends of the Island to join us in ouur campaign for better roads. Yours for better roads, Troy S. Williams CARTERET COUNTY KEWS-THIES Carteret County's Only Newspaper A Merger Of .
