down and plunks the quarter on the counter—“A choco

Come Home To” blares away. On the soda counter
there is a poster “Buy bonds with that quarter,” but it
is too late now, so there is one less stamp bought—-one

Somewhere in the South Pacific on an island a Unit

trained on a line of Japs, slowly proceeding up the
hill—eight—nine—not many Japs. A Marine’s match
for an even fight. The Marine is tense as his steady
finger searches for the trigger in the dark fox-hole.
Above, the sun shines doAVn on a world at war, and
scattered clouds dance across the skies. The Japs come
closer—closer—closer—’til the Marine is Just a hun

where all Japs belong.

In order to reach the goal

I in Wilkes county during tbe
I remainder of this moolii
I must totfd approximately
$150,000, W. D. Halfacre,
war finance campaign chair
man for Wilkes, said today.
Mr. Halfacre stated that bond
sales to date were approximately
$225,000, but that the sum In
cluded the purchases by the heavy '
investors and- that the balance
must come from persons who can
buy only the smeller bonds In de
nominations from $25 to $1,000.
It is interesting to note that
Tuesday, April 23, the birthday of
Hitler, was a banner day in bond
sales in Wilkes county and that
many people' called at banks and
other issuing agents to buy bonds
and asked that the date, Hitler’s
birthday, be stamped on the bond.
’Thus they paid their respects to
"by-furnishing money ■wltir
which to pay for the implements
of warfare to defeat Hitler and all
he stands for.
A'esterday Mr. Halfacrc receiv
ed a letter from Duke Power
company in Charlotte stating
that $20,000 had been allotted by
the company to purchase bonds
for which Wilkes will get credit
in the campaign. Previously $10.-
000 had been received from the
International Shoe company,
which operates a wood extract
The war finance or.ian'/.ation is
making a strong appeal to all the
people who hove money to invest
it now in war bonds in order that
