Contasi Held In
Mri. Emelyn Haynes Smith,
teacher of reading in the seventh
grade, in Junior high school, con
ducted a contest on the Victory
Loan drive In her classes. The
students were given the privilege
of making a poster or writing
about the drive. The winning post
ers have been placed in the vari
ous business firms and the winning
written entries were as follows:
We are now heading for a goal
on the Eighth War Loan Drive.
The other war loans paid for the
war. This one will pay for taking
care of the soldiers and hospitali
zation for the wounded.
The bonds bought in the first
seven war loan drives helped to
avenge Pearl Harbor, brought Italy
to surrender, brought about D-Day,
and made Germany surrender.
The bonds boutrht in the seventh
war loan helped to raise the flag
on Iwo Jima. Then on September
10. 1945, Japan surrendered.
Because the war is'over the peo
ple of the United States should not
lie down on the job. They should
continue to buy war bonds and
hold the ones they have.
So peoole keep on buying bonds
so n? to have a home or some de
sired item in the future. When you
are buying bonds, you aren't giv-
in" just lending. j
Some people have given their i
lops, some their arms, eyes, and
even some have given both leps or
arms. While we at home say we
have bought all the bonds and
stamps we can. but we haven't
We can use the money we spend
for csndies and other luxuries for
bonds and stamps. Let's all strive
to do our best. i

A Statement About Shoplifting
It is the observation of the merchants of this community that during
recent months there has been a very considerable increase in shoplifting.
It is the further observation of local merchants that the increased use
of shopping bags made necessary by the shortage of paper bag3 has con
tributed to this increase particularly with relation to food items.
The loss by local stores is estimated to run into thousands of dolla
for the past few months.

Our sales people have been alerted to be on the watch. Information
is being exchanged between stores and furnished to law enforcement offi
cials. These officials are cooperating, and we express herewith our appre
ciation to them.
