With many peo ple from here at work on the coast, it is nothing unusual for a letter to reach, here telling of the sinking of a ship, and then days, and even weeks later, the news of the sinking of the same ship conies out of Wash ington. ,,,,..,.. ; On the surface that does not make sense. After hearing two officials from the cen sorship office in Washington, in an "off the record" discussion of the ' matter, and ex plain in detail the necessity, continuing this precaution, we are absolutely .satisfied that those charged with sending -out such news are correct in their procedure and methods. :jK v. We must not forget that we are at war with nations that are smart:;' They have studied and prepared themselves, for every little detail. One little intended innocent word dropped here might make big news in military circles in our enemies' camp. We were impressed with the sincerity of the men from the censorship office, and we are confident that Americans will get all the news that can be given out with safety. Inflation(In One Cylinder Words) Inflation, as described in the dictionary, is a disDroDortionate and relatively sharp and sudden increase in the quantity of money or credit, or both, relative to the amount of exchange business. In accordance with the law of quantity theory of money, inflation nroduces a rise in the price level. In simpler language and applied to the nresent situation, inflation is caused by a shortage of consumer goods and a tremen dous increase in the amount of money paid out in wages. For the time being, we have stopped mak ing automobiles, refrigerators, bicycles and other useful peacetime products that we could buy and use any time, and have con centrated on the production of warplanes, tanks, guns, bombs and other things that are useful only in wartime. We have stop ped making the things we want and are making the things we must have to win the war. Thousands of formerly unemployed now have jobs. Added thousands are making mnrfi monev than they ever made before. So, with more money in our pockets to spend tr snend it on. either the value 01 money is reduced or the value of the goods has increased figure it either way ine result is the same. They both mean infla tion to the man in the street. The danger in inflation lies in the fact that when it is in operation, all the money we earn and all the money we have savea U worth less to Us and to everyone else Inflation is just as simple as that and just as dangerous. . That is why the people should be so in terested in combatting it. "RIGHT HAND MArT I ; UNO! SAM'S TOM ' ., , Voice s OF THE People Rambling Arouni '- - By W.

Emmett Balentine "I believe wo will have a substitute that will lift the rationing from tires," HERE and THERE By .. HILDA WAY GWYN Dirty Propaganda Postal laws prevent us from printing our honest opinion of an individual, a commun ity or a state, who deliberately takes undue advantage of the misfortune of others. Because of this feeling, we fail to appre ciate the news coming out of towns across the Tennessee border, which on the surface is designed to entertain readers, yet be tween the lines is injected prepaganda to exploit their adequate supply of gasoline and the absence of rationing. ; It seems that some Tennessee resort towns are taking an unfair advantage of tourist centers in this state. A lot of ugly rumors from Tennessee about the gasoline situation in North Carolina have made their way across the mountain, but we are hardened enough in news gathering to disregard the rumors. However, we cannot overlook some of the recent news releases from the Ten nessee tourist centers that have found their way into print in many papers. : The gasoline rationing is costing Wee tern: North Carolina plenty of money. There iss no need to deny this, however, there is tfrisj compensation, we all know that what sacri fices are being made in the curtailment oC business and pleasure is being made for thes ake of peace and victory. And when the peace and victory come;. W in North Carolina can hold our heads high and think back to the time when we made the sacrifices for peace. We have no desire to live in a town, or a. state that could not do likewise. We have no desire to live in a town or a state that might gain a few dollars by cap italizing on the misfortunes of others "That Which We Call A Rose" it soeitia that inhabitations of some of the towns in the U. S. A. that were named Berlin long before the named carried pres ent day associations are very unhappy over the choice made when the communities were founded. We can hardly blame them. We can imagine ourselves residing in a town of fKflf : name and being asked where we were from, starting at once to explain that it contained only patriotic American citizens desDite its name. It is said that there are at least 16 Ber lins in the United States, to be found in Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Wis consin. New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Alabama and Mary land. Berlin. Maryland, is agitating a change in its name. We hope they don't all settle on Victory or Liberty, two popular current . names. .: : In fact when one starts on the subject there is no end of names that might have new associations, never dreamed of in the past, for instance, Japanese iris, German measles, Japanese beetles, and Japanese gar dens. .

The nation's farmers deserve commenda tion for their wholehearted cooperation with the salvage committees of their respective states during the busy spring season. The recent successful drive to recover country iron" was spurred by a personal appeal from WPB Chief Donald M. Nelson, who told Yarmers that farm iron ranked second only to steel rails as the most Valuable scrap imetal for defense. There are 6,300,000 farms in the United States. Surveys show that the average iarm has approximately 1,000 pounds of acran iron. This is in the form of obsolete, broken, and worn-out machinery of all kinds. The collection has accomplished two im mortant ourDoses: It has made available a huge amount of high quality iron for -war needs : it has brought a very substantia sum to farmers at a season when ready cash is welcome. A word of praise is due also to the farm imnlement dealers who have cooperated to help Uncle Sam secure this metal. They have used their trucks for collecting and have handled the scrap in their yards with out profit. The entire program is another proof of the willingness of citizens to co operate when they see a way in which they can help. Christian Science Monitor. ' you to know where the money came I J- L.
