“Book Week this year finds us wag
ing a war to the death against a brute
foe who knows that if truth, beauty
and decency are to be stamped from
the eafth, they must first be destroy-,
ed in the minds of children.
Books can transport them into
places and times remote )from the
grim present, can give them the com
plete relaxation the growing mind
so badly needs.
Books bring inspiration, too. For
in them can be found the! stories of
past struggles to make men free.
They are the best means by which
We can teach children why we fight
and for what we fight.
And so the foe we face began his
war against us by burning books.
But, children who are taught to love
books and to look to them for friend
ship, comfort and guidance, will be
armed with knowledge to oppose the
forces of destruction, present and
Book Week will be observed from
November 15th to 21st this year, and
the slogan is “Forward With Books.”

T. Colon Scarborough, local Scrap
dealer, had been awarded the con
tract for Scrap at Fort Bragg. He
was first sent to the Adjutant Gen

issued a Pass which he was to use ev
ery time he entered the Post. Sidney
Epstein was working for Scarborogh,
hauling the Scrap. So Scarborough
says he thought the Pass was issued
to him for his business and that of
course a man in his employ could go
in on it. He therefore gave it to Ep-
steen to use when he went to the
Post to haul the Scrap, and it was in
this capacity that Epsteen was at
tempting to enter the Post with Scar-
boro’s Pass. Scarboro was arrested
by Military police and convicted by
U. S. Commissioner Downing of il
legal entry to the Fort Bragg reser

fine. He also warns his friends that
