"The War Department realises the

"More supplies must oome from all
parts of the «>untry, with particular
reference to the South at this time.
"The basic economy of the country,
of course, must be maintained, at
least in its minimum requirements,
and overall increases in production
are imperative." v V %!■

The following comment on the
August crop report was made recently
by Marvin Jones, War Food
Administrator: "The July crop seport
made it clear that farmers in
the face of many difficulties had substantially
met, and in some eases
exceeded, the crop acreage goals.
During July, growing conditions were
favorable and current indications are
that yields per acre in 1948 will be
the second largest an record. The
progress of the year's production «o
far is gratifying. The hard work
tad the determination at farmers
have placed ns in • position to meet
essential food needs, given average
weather from now on.
"However, the crops are still to be
harvested, marketed, and processed,
and, in the aase of the feed crops,
red to livestock. Farmers will need
additional workers for harvest, and
food processing industries ore short
in the hiftory oI the world.

according to Clarence T. Ltiibaek,
-Winston-Salem, State Chairman of
the War Finance OimBilttHi
The gigantic drive has two major
phases* Lstabach stated. 0» phase
is the big business and industry purchase
of bonds and other government
securities through personal solicitation,
and the other phase is the
volume purchase of E. F and G bonds
to reach WMWlJjbOO wage earners.
.At the present time there are 82,000,000
workers in the United States
on the Payroll Swings Plan, their
combined piwsfrsns of War Bonds
totaling $500,000,000 per month. During
the third War Loan campaign it
will be necessary for these 82,000,000
workers to buy WarBonA* in addition
to those purchased regularly
through the PaymU Savings Plan.
These estaa bonds they may purchase
with the extra money they are
earning or Ky setting aside a special
budget which will enable them to buy
additional bonds.
"Ifeel confident of the success of
the third War Loan drive rh_ the
public realises the urgent need for
thesis,000,000,000 set as goal. When
we are winning we cannot afford to"
let up," he emphasised. "For as
long as there are men dying we cannot
afford to stop buying. Once thin
message is gotten across to the w*g»
earninc public, that public will net
hesitate to do its full share in put
ing over the third War Loan drive."

complete shortly his state organisation
