Scrap Metal Sales Aid
Farmers And Red Cross
" . Scrap iron and steel is .needed
in. the defense program '.. .''the
American Red Cross needs money
for emergency work : . . farmers
want to hell) in the war effort in
every way possible.
Dean 1. 0. Schaub, director of
the- State College Extension Ser
vice and agricultural ; representa
tive on the executive committee of
the State' Defense Council,- sug
gests a way' for farmers io serve
to ''Scrap the Japs- With Scrap. '
.In Hoke County, he says, a one
day scrap metal collection . cam
paign was conducted, and farmers
brought in more thas 300,000 pounds
of discarded farm machinery, trac
tors, gas engines,, automobiles, fence
wire, etc. They sold the .scrap to
licensed dealers ait from 40 to 55
cents per 100 pounds.
"Instead of pocketing the money
for the scran, most of
the farmers turned around and do
nated the cash to the Red Cross,"
1 lean- Schaub reported. "In this
way, the farmers provided metal
for gun and munitions, and for
i he manufacture of farm machin
ery, while donating to the Red
Cross aiiore money than tlhey
otherwise would have been able
to irive." ' .'
Dean Schaub suggested that the
scrap metal collection campaigns
-.which ..will be conducted in. other
couivties this month be patterned
along the same lines as the Hoke
county"- drive. A theatre , in Rae
ford offered free movie tickets to
fanners who brought in 500 pounds
or more of scrap, and other prizes
were offered by merchaii'ts who
advertised in a special edition of
the local newspaper. -
"Scrap iron- and steel is abso
lutely necessary in the present
method of manufacturing ,new
steel," the farm ' leader, explained.
"There are thousands of . tons of
scrap on farms of North Carolina
which should be put to use in the
National war program.'; .

in full time activities are members
of the Army Nurse Corps, Reserve

the way, cemes from the dark, rich

The 6tory of her career is not
unlike that of many other women

U. S. Marines f
With .the United. States Marine
Corps on the front page of every
paper showing their exploits in the
Pacific war zone, many may have
wondered what it 1 is that makes
the Marine Corps play such a
prominent part. Through the years
since the birth of our nation,
America's best trained military
men have been United States
The high type of military ef
ficency reflected through the phys
ical and mental alertjness as well
as cleanliness and neatness, of
Marines can be traced directly to
the thorough yet considerate, train
ing received under competent non
commissioned officers, at the Ma
nne A.orps training station on
Parris Island, S. C.
Marine Corps recruits reach
military perfection soon after leav
ing "boot" camp, where recruits
spend their probationary training
period. There new Marines find
their non-commissioned officers
strict in every detail. The purpose
of the exacting "boot"' camp rou
tine is soon realized by the re
cruit who, within a few short
weeks of rigorous training, be
comes an able rifleman and fa
miliar with the manual of arms,
military environment and other
basic requirements of the Marine
Unlike the hard boiled Marine
sergeants of fiction and movies,
the new Marine soon discovers
that non-commissioned officers are
stern yet friendly and anxious to
assist new Marines solve oroblems
New Marines soon learn to look
to these seasoned veterans as
tnends to be sought - for instruc
tions and advice.
Non-commissioned officers of the
Marine Corps have earned repu
tations as top notch military ex
perts because of the vear thev
nave spent training troops. These
sKinea soldiers of the sea are re
sponsible to their officers for the
performances of their mn. This
