A DIRECT APREAL TO AUf OI IIS
, (An Editorial)
This week the campaign to raise Wilkes county’s
quota of $12,000 for the United War Fund, including
quotas for local Boy Scout smd Girl Scout activities,
gets under way. And naturally, our first impluse is
to siiy:^ “There are so many calls for money, I just
simply can’t give anjrthing this time”.
The object of the United War Fund drive is to give
once for all tho seventeen worthy causes it represents,
and when we consider how little we are giving as
compared to the men and women in the tervi^ who
are giving ALL in order that we may continue to en
joy our Liberty and Freedom, the few paltry dollars
we give are nothing when so many are givmg their
Only yesterday a message of death came to a
Wilkes county home. A fine young American had
been killed in the African area. No doubt some
where this brave, young American was able to forget
war, at least for the time being, through the instru
mentality of some U. S. O. unit. There’s hardly a home
in Wilkes county that is not now represented by some
member in the service. Anything that we can do at
hinne is not good enough for the boy or girl in the
armed forces. So give liberally and promptly to the
great cause, to which you will be asked during the
next few d&y* to contribute.
Wilkes county has not come up short in any war
effort to date. Let’s put over the United War Fund
