Buy Bonds Or Wear ’Em
The war bond quota for this county for
'August has recently been announced, and
we are confident our citizens are going "-n
buy their share, even though some of them
may have made sacrifices to do so.
The government is asking each income
earner to set aside at least 10 percent of
his or her savings for the purchase of war
bonds and stamps, the soundest investment
in the whole world.
Some of our citizens can invest this
much and a great deal more without pinch
ing their pocketbooks. For others it may
mean some sacrifices, such as doing with
out luxuries and things that are really
classified as non-essentials.
Most of the large firms and corporations
of our State are doing their part. Only four
of the corporations employing 500 or more
persons do not have a payroll plan. Un
der this plan the employes vote to have 10
percent of their wages deducted each pay
day for the purchase,of war bonds. More
than 1500 of the State’s firms and corpora
tions now have this plan in operation, and
in practically every case at least 90 per
cent of the employes are participating.
North Carolina was in the forefront of
Southern states in bond sales for May, ex
ceeding its quota by 40 percent, and was
well up among the leaders in sales for
June and July. The August quota calls for
‘•Dollars thus lent the government
through the ])urchase of bonds are used
directly to buy guns, tanks, airplanes, ships
for our armed forces. And at the same
time, tn the extent they are not spent for
cars, radios., sodas, and the like, they re
lease labor and materials for war uses.
“These bond-invested dollars do not
compete with other dollars for our limited
supply of clothes, food, and other neces
sities and thereby raise prices and cause
‘‘Moreover, they remain available to the.
lender at any time and will return to him,
increased by generou.s interest payments.
After the war things now scarce will be
plentiful. Purchases then will help post
war recovery as much as purchases no^^ of
non-essentials can hurt our war effort.”
In the final analysis it is up to each one
of us to invest as much as possible in
these bonds. We can take our choice—
we must buy them or wear them.

“SIXTH, After the final destruction of
the Nazi tyranny, they hope to see
lished a peace which will alford to all na
tions the means of dwelling fail safe^ with
in their own boundaipes, and which will af
ford assurance that all the men in all the
lands may live out their lives in freedom
from fear and want;
“SEVENTH, Such a peace should enable
all men to traverse the high seas and oceans
“EIGHTH, They believe that all of the
nations of the world, for realistic as well
as spiritual reasons must come to the aban
donment of the use of force. Since no fu
ture peace can be maintained if land, sea
or air amraments continue to be employed
by nations which threaten, or may threat
en, aggression outside of their frontiers,
they believe, pending the establishment of
a wider and permanent system of general,
security, that the disarmament of such na
tions is essential. They will likewise aid
and encourage all other practicable meas
ures which will lighten for peace-loving

I AM AN AMERICAN
I am an American.
All that I am, all that I ever hope to be,
all that I can ever become, I owe to Amer-
it;a—its struggles in my behalf, its teach
ings, its counsel, its origin, its prophecies,
and its destiny.
I am an American, but not because ot
race, creed,, social position, ancestry, not
because my grandfather had a million dol
lars in his own right, not because my fath
er is a United States senator.
I am an American because I was poured
into the American mold.

Anniversary Of Atlantic Charter
A document which will go down in his-
tor>' IS the Atlantic Charter, which wa.s
formulated and signed one year ago today
by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, of the
United States, and Prime Minister Winston
Churchill, of the British Empire, while in
meeting on a warship on the Atlantic.
Ju.st in case you missed its text in news
papers following that event, or to refresh
your memory of what that document con
tained, we are reproducing its eight points
“FIRST, Their countries seek no aggran
dizement, territorial or other;
“SECOND, They desire to see no territo
rial changes that do not accord with the
freely expressed wishes of the people con
“THIRD, They respect the right of all
people to choose the fonn of government
under which they will live; and they wish
to see sovereign 'rights aind self-govern
ment restored to those who have been for
cibly deprived of them;
“FOURTH They will endeavor, with
due respect for their existing obligations,
to further' the enjoyment by all States,
irreat or small, victor or vanquished, of ac
cess on equal terms, to the trade and raw
materials of the world which are needed
for their economic prosperity.
“FIFTH, They desire to bring about the

Millions of soldiers, sailors, civilians
have toiled that I might have the best
chance possible, the broadest basis of good

They have taught me to bear and for

bought heritages, to proclaim and preserve
the right to make my own laws, elect my
own public officials, worship God accord

the test, to carry on untiringly that Ameri^
