National War Fund con
tributions in Wilkes county
to date total approximately
^000, which is two-thirds
of the $12,000 goal. Chair
man T. E. Story said today.
* The combined National
War Fund, which includes
many service men and war
relief agencies, cat's for $9,-
500 from Wilkes and in order
to eliminate a local drive for
funds $2,500 was added for
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts,
making the total $12,000.
Chairman Story said that some
of the rural workers have made
their reports to the central or
ganization hut he urged that they
continue to receive contributions
and to contact any people who
were missed in the first canvass.
He also urged, that the workers
who have not reported make every
reasonable effort to call on every
person who can make a contribu
tion in order that the county may
go over the top In this important
wp:; effort.
Pointing out that the National
War fund eliminate many calls
for contributions, Chairman
Story said that the people may be
assured that liberal contributions
in this campaign will make it un
necessary for them to be canvass
ed often for funds for war relief
and related agencies.
In order that the quota may be
reached, all workers are urgently
requested to complete the canvass
of their respective communities
within the next few days.
Attention is called to the fact
that persons who are not contact
ed by workers may send or mail
their contributions to Chairman
Story, or to W. D. Halfacre, treas
urer of the fund, at North Wilkes-
