T. U. Green brought the "house

detail in Here and There, on page
two of this newspaper.)
Dr. C N. Sisk, district health
officer, was alarmed at the large
percentage of young men rejected
by the service because of physical
disability. Proper diet and better
living conditions are heeded to
correct this needless condition he
remarked. "We have got to have
a proper and balanced diet, and
here m the rural sections there is
no reason for not having such,"
He advised that everyone eat
wholesome bread and "leave white

of "Render unto Caesar those

Lord," he expounded on the first
part that we were obligated and
should consider it a pleasure and
duty to help our government when
called upon. Mr. MacBlain was
warm in his praise of the co-operation
between business men and
farmers in Haywood. "I am a new
comer in this community, having
been here but a year. Each group
knows what the other is trying to
do, and under euch conditions you
are helping each other to make a
success of your undertakings." He
said further: "I feel The Mountain
eer is responsible for this under
standing and co-operation between
the two groups."
W. A. Bradley told the group,
"We farmers are going to put this"
program across. If the people in
England need food now as badiy as
they did during the last war, they
are in a bad fix, because I tried
to eat some there in 1918, and it
was terrible." r
W. T. Shelton pointed out that

HEWS REPORTS AT FT. JACKSON
By Bobby Sloan.
The first real fighting of the
maneuver as far as our regiment
was concerned, took place this past
week, when the 120th Infantry
made up the spearhead of an as
sault against the First Army troops
with whom we were maneuvering.
Black-out troop movements by
truck took care of the firat two
days of the week. We were the
