THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER.
By Frances Gilbert Trazier
WHAT PRICE PATRIOTISM?
Take the front page of any
daily newspaper and let your eyes
form a triangle of the news yov
will find there. At the apex is
the most important news of all;
important to those who have lov
ed ones on the fighting front. For
there you will find the casualty
list: Tragedy in all its accoutere
ments! Then let your eyes slide down
to the lower right, hand point of
the triangle: you will suddenly
feel a tightening of anger in your
throat and a feeling of nausea
that will encompass your soul.
You wonder, deep in your heart,
if some men can really under
stand what war and its horrors
tan mean. For at that right hand
corner you will find this startling
information staring you in the
face: "34,000 Men Out Of De
fense Plants On Strike." Then

sorts of protective materials. Yet
let a parade pass by tnd they will
be the first to wave a flag and
hide behind its irlorious folds.
WHAT SORT OF MEN ARE
Their bank accounts are rising
to unheard of heights and, in
wardly, secretly, they are pro
moting1 the war just as much as
though it were possible for them
to grind out the orders to fight
on and on. Yet they are the very
men who condemn the Govern
ment for any expense that does
not enter into their narrow and
bigoted vision. They are the ones
that criticize the President, Con
gress, and others in power, then
go ahead and pat their respective
Congressmen on the backe because
these men happen to pass laws
that will benefit their individual
incomes. The men who profit in
politics are doing their level best
to pollute politics so that decent
men will hesitate to become a
candidate for any political job.
There are crooks, of course, in
every walk of life but none of j
them can compare with the men
who sit in exalted positions an

How can these gluttons of A-
nance face these returning men
who will come back maimed, sick
eneel and too, too often jobless
But how in all decency can they
face the widows and children of
those men wfio will never come
back to their families? Those
men who have written the word
PATRIOTISM with their life's
blood, not with a fountain pen

calls for double packaging to pro

demption plan for War Bonds.
In the Old days it took a month or so to cash ln a government
War Bond. Today you can take your E bond to a bank window ,
and in a few minutes walk out with the money the security is worth.
Although fears were expressed that the easy-cash-
in plan would result in wholesale redemption, the
ABA and the treasury big-wigs report that actually
it does not.
Instead, there Is evidence that bond owners are
content with the knowledge they can get their
money whenever they want it and are therefore more encouraged to
buy bonds with "emergency" funds they otherwise would keep In
savings or checking accounts.
W. Randolph Burgess, president of ABA, points out that bank
savings and checking accounts have worked for many years on the
principle of money available on demand and that there have been
few -examples of wholesale rushes for withdrawals.

New Jersey, advocates that American women go on the war path

fore they will ever be taken' seriously."
