Cut More Pulpwood
We want to keep reminding’ the farmers
and timbermen in Wilkes county that they
are missing a good chance to help the war
effort if they do not cut and market pulp-
wood at present prices.
Pulpwood is badly needed in-*the- war
program and the campaign for wood cut
ting for an extra cord for every man in
service from this county between Novem
ber 11 and December 11. Those who cut
an extra cord in honor of some service
man, relative or friend, get their name on
the honor roll in the campaign.
Help the war effort and help your finan
cial status 'by cutting and marketing more

The Joumak speaks for all patriotic,^ law
abiding citizens of North Carolina when
thanks Judge Johnson J.-Hayes, of the
Federal Court, for the effective manner m
which he is helping to hold the line on one
vital sector of the home front
On the opening day of his court in Wim
Bton-Salem this week, he was confronted
by four violators of OPA regulations. .
In sentencing two of the defendants to
prison and . imposing heavy fines on tho
other two. Judge Hayes is quoted as hav
“1 do not know anything more important
than seeing that these OPA regulations are
* In further stressing the importance of
both observing and enforcing these regu
lations, he directed attention to the fact
that this whole rationing sptem was set
up for the purpose of dividing the availa
ble goods as fairly as possible and that in
order for the syStem to work, all the peo-
'ple must co-operate in the program.
In this position Judge Hayes has the
earnest and unfaltering support, we are
sure, of an overwhelming majority of the
people of North Carolina, because they
recognize that the present rationing sys
tem is the only democratic method of deal
ing with the problem of shortage of many
vital necessities of life.
Our people know that rationing is neces
sary to the successful prosecution of this
war, and that those who wilfully violate
the rationing regulations are hindering
rather than helping their country at a time*
when their country is fighting for its very
life as a nation.
If all Judges in the United States will
follow the example of Judge Hayes in
dealing with violators of OPA regulations,
the success of the rationing system will be

THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS
We sometime wonder at the lukewarm
ness, coldness, formality, indifferences,
dreadness and powerlessness of the ma
jority of those who profess to be Chris
tians, and of the average church through
out the land today. While reading a bof.k
by Andrew Murray entitled “The Prayer
Life”, we are convinced more than ever be
fore that the main reason is that of prayer-
lessness. How little the average church
member and professed Christian prays!
Our blessed Lord said: “Men ought always
to pray, and not to faint”. (Luke 18:1).
This quotation heads a very wonderful
parable on prayer which every professoi
of religion ought to read very, very often
and heed. It not only'teaches us to al
ways pray, but to hold on and on in prayer

WHO WAS ORAOT?— «
A few days ago a man sat down
beside ns at InneU time.' He had
imbibed too freeljr of firewater or
some of its derlTStlvoB, and was
feeling pretty good. In fact too
good for bis own good.
After taking the seat adjacent
to ours he looked at ns and grinn
ed. Next he looked at us and
laughed. Then he stared stnolght
into us for a time.
Then he said: “Are you Dwight
Nichols’’? We didn’t know wheth
er to admit It or say we were one
of the Jones ooys, but finally said
"yes”, after thinking that if he
was mad about something he
wouldn’t be laughing so much.
Aftdr our reply he laughed
again, and after a pause laughed
some more. He was one of tho
fellows who really laughed out
After e long pause during which
it looked like he would have
another spasm of laughter, he
leaned over and while still grin
ning, asked: "Are you crazy”?
Having disqualified ourselves
on that topic, we countered with
What do you thiak?".
He sniggered again aad apolo
getically said: "I read that col
umn with your picture at the top’’.
