Carolina Flyers Get
Award for Bravery
Washington, March 28. Awards
of 579 decorations to officers and en
listed men of the Army Air Forces
for outstanding aerial actions in the
European and North African thea
tres of operations were announced
today by the War Department.
The actions for which most of
these awards were made have taken
pliice since U. S. troops moved into
North Africa. Some of them are for
the destruction in combat of Ger
man fighter planes, others are for
successful bombing missions against
the enemy and for the longest troop
carrier flight on record a flight
from the United Kingdom to North
Africa on November 7-8, 1942. Many
were for individual fead of heroism.

Included in the list of North Caro
linians awarded, was Fist Lt. James
K. David, for 10 sorties.
Our Boys Think ? ?
Is the county ashamed of its ros
ter of men in the service? That is
a question that is being 'phoned into
this office daily. WHY? BECAUSE
the roster that was painted as an in
centive for every person in the coun
ty to collect scrap is lying (at this
writing) face down in the mud and
on the scrap heap of the junk pile.
Would it not be a tribute to these
boys to place this roster on the Court
House lawn where all may see how
gloriously Hoke County men are do,
ing their dpty?
Among the timely books to be
found in the library are the follow
ing: America in the Pacific, is by
George Taylor, author and expert
on Far Eastern affairs, who writes
from a background and with a per
spective all too rare in discussion of
Athene Palace, by Countess Wal
beck, is the most effective dissection
of the Nazi New Order yet present
ed to the American public.
Arms and the People by Alden
Stevens, is the story to date of the
millions of men in our armed forces,
mill more in defense jobs, of tiny
villages mushrooming overnight, of
farmers under pressure to produce,
of the greatest housing boom in our
history, of struggling infant indu
tries becoming giants and a nation
al income at an undreamed of figure.
In Return to the Future, Sigrid
Undset tells of her flight from Oslo
to Stockholm, then the long Jour
ney across the Soviet Union and the
Pacific to America, a story of the
most intense dramatic interest.
Books about places of interest are,
The Panama Canal, by Padelford;
My India, My America, Shridharani,
Dawn Watch in China, Homer; Aus
tralia, McGuire; Hawaii, Restless
Rampart, Barber, and Central Amer

Dear Ma Dickkson:

that cold rainy day back in good old
Carolina when you sewed up a hole
in my O. D. gloves and at the same
time gave me a subscription to the

everybody down to the last man
in our unit, read it all of it. And
believe me it's a comfort, for from
North Africa to the States is a long
hard way, and we're all homesick.
