D. J. Boyd Returns

ia producing most reach Britain
safely and quickly if the United
State ia to be defended.
Elsewhere during- the conference,
Mr. Boyd picked up authoritative
figures which show that Britain
imports of all products have drop
ped' from the rate of 65 million
tons per year pre war to 47 mil
lion tons, due to shipping losses.
Thirty-five million tons of omports
have been regarded as the dan
ger line, he said. Normal food
imports have been at 22 and one
half million tons per year, but
this has been cout to 12 million
tons. Recently, however, this
amount was increased to 14 mil
lion tons at the expense of muni
tions imports, badly as they are
needed, because of the growing
food shortage, he explained. .
Mr. Boyd brought home with him
a copy of the secretary's address
excerpts from which follow;
"Speaking for myself, I would
never ask the farmers of this
country to grow more food for the
British if I did not believe we would
see that this food gets to the Brit
ish. I don't believe the people of
this country favor half-way meas
ures. Let's do whatever is nec
essary to see that our .food and
munitions actually get to England
and let's do it right away. The
situation is urgent, terribly urgent.
Our food and munitions must not
only be produced, they must be
delievered, and delivered in time.
The American people face the de
cision on this mattr now. We
run risks if we insist upon de
livery of our food and munitions to
Great Britain, but any course we
take involves risks. Half-way
measures involve the worst risks.
To put it bluntly? we had better
take risks on getting aid to Eng
land than to risk bombing raids
on American cities, and tank at
tacks on our own fields."
"From the outbreak of the sec
ond World War, I have hoped with
all my heart that the United
States could remain at peace. But
to refuse to take decisive and
vigorous action to help Britain is
no guarantee of peace. Frankly
speaking, I see no course for the
United States that gives any real
promise of keeping us from be
coming deeply involved in this
world conflict To refuse to fight
until an attack has been made upon
us is no guarantee of peace. If
anyone doubts that, let him ask
the people of Belgium, Holland,
Denmark, Greece and other coun
tries under Nazi domination. It
is acknowledged, I think, that
Great Britain will go down unless
the United States sees that she
gets munitions and food. Does
anyone believe that the fall of
British ends the danger of war
for the United States 7"
"Once upon a time women and
children behind fighting lines were
reasonably safe. Now nothing Is
safe. Cities can be wiped out in
a few hours. In the hands of fan-

The Civil Service
As a part of the Nationad De
fense program months ago thu gov
ernment began preparation to meet
an anticipated need, for an unsu
ally large number of nurses both in
military and civil services. The
government has recently announ
ced open continuous examinations
to secure nurses, but despite these
examinations there is an acute
shortage of nurses.
The need now is urgent, and
trained nurses are urged to make
application- for examinations with
the local post office or the secre
tary of the Board of U. S. Civil
Service Examiners, Washington,

Stadium Is Far
Ahead Of Average
The stadium at the high school
athletic field has just had an addi
tion completed, giving a large
concrete stadium facing oie of the
best atletic fields in the state.
The grounds used for baseball
and softball play is rated as the
best in Western North Carolina,
while the turfted football field is
said to be one of finest in use in
the state by high schools.
Both the ball and football fields
are equipped for lighting at night,

threatens civilization. . Unless we
find some way to end war, we
might as well prepare for a return
to barbarism. Does anyone think
that the way to lasting peace is
to give the dictators time to con
solidate their gains, utilize their
conquered reseources and then pre
pare for the richest conquest of
all the United States 1 Some per
sons argue that no power or com

United States provided we. stay at
home and arm ourselves; Have

Britain out of the way, the dic

to decide what further steps are
necessary to safeguard the Amer
ican way of life."

includes a written test.
For Skilled Labor
For Defense Work
The needs of various National
Defense agencies for skilled work
ers have increased greatly in the
past few months. Hundreds of
positions are as yet unfilled.
The government has made dur
ing the past eight months an in
tensive effort to locate qualified
skilled machinists and shipbuild
ing workers for arsenals, army
air depots and naval shore estab
lishments. In this time the U. S.
Civil Service has placed 10,000
skilled workers at locations where
because of labor supply, these skill
ed jobs have been hard to fill.
This number does not include
localities where little or no diffi
culty is found in recruiting those
with experience and is but a small
fraction of the 270 000 workers
that have been placed during the
last 8 months.
Applications for the3e positions
at a navy yard should be filled
with the labor board at the navy
yard where employment is de
sired, or for positions at an arse
nal, with the secretary, Board of
U. S. Civil Service Examiners at

are indeed grateful for the splendid success
you. made of our formal opening last Saturday. We
were overwhelmed with the large attendance.
The many kind expressions, and compliments made

in that we know our merchandise is of superior quality
and our prices lower than many replacement prices
on today's market.
