County War Bond
Sale Nearly 2011
Of Fifth Loan Quota
Drive Closed Last Sat
urday; E Bond Sales
Still Under Way
War bond .sales in l'eru,uimans
County, at the close of the Fifth
War Loan last Saturday, amounted
to $rl.T2,.'i!)2..r0, according to R. M.
Riddick, chairman of the Perquimans
War Finance Committee, who pointed
out these sales were almost two iiun
dred per cent of the county's Fifth
War Loan quota of $267,0(10.
This county is one of the few coun
ties of the State to reach its quota
in the sales of V. bonds. Local resi
dents had purchased $7(,Ki',4 worth
of K bonds up to the close of business
Saturday. The county quota was
$74,000. However, Mr. Riddick dis
closed that all K bonds sold during
the balance of this month will count
toward the county's record during
the Fifth War Loan and he urged
the public to continue to buy K bonds
in order to aid the national goal,
which at the present time is slightly
behind the quota.
In releasing the final figures on
the sale of bonds during the drive,
Mr. Ridick and members of the com
mittee expressed their thanks and
appreciation to the people of Per
quimans County for the splendid co
operation shown in making it possi
ble for the county to again success
l fully meet its war bond goal. The
j chairman said: "The people of the
: county have established a record that
I can be pointed to with pride. During
the five drives Perquimans has rank
' ed among the first .counties to o
j over the top in lending money for
l the war effort."
' One correction was noted in the
list of purchasers of bonds during
j the rally held two weeks ago. This
newspaper published the Hertford
j Cafe as ibeing the highest bidder
i during the rally. The purchaser of
the bonds should have read Sarondis
Metaxas. He made the highest bid
on any one article offered at the
Winners of the prizes ofiered by
the committee for sales made during
the drive will be announced just as
soon as the committee can make a
complete tally of all applications and
sales are recorded during the Fifth
War Loan, Mr. Riddick stated.
