I'Free Cigarettes for Soldiers" is
being sponsored in Raeford by the
Kiwanis Club. Through an arrange
ment with the manufacturer of one
of the leading brands of cigarettes it
will be possible to send the boys who
are actually fighting and to those
who are in hospitals abroad, a popu
lar brand of cigarettes bearing the
label "Good Luck from Kiwanis
Club and Citizens of Raeford. North
Money is provided by gifts from
local people, and the cigarettes will
be purchased at the rate of 5c a pack
of twenty. The government will
handle the transportation to any for
eign point selected by local people,
and distribution will be by the Red
Cross. In other communities cam
paigns to send cigarettes have gone
over very successfully, and people
living in these communities have re
ceived many very interesting "thank
you" letters from the soldiers in hos
pitals and on the fighting fronts
where they received the free cigar
Boxes in which local people may
drop their money have been approx

The suggestion has been made that
cigarettes sent from this community
should go to members of the Second
Armored Division who were encamp
ed near Raeford for three months last
year. These men have been in the
fighting in North Africa, and many
are now in hospitals. It is believed
they would appreciate hearing in
such a way from Raeford people.

May I ask you to experess to News
paper Publishers our thanks and ap
preciatyon for the truly remarkable
contribution they are making to the
Second War Loan. We feel quite
certain that never before has any
oause received such complete and
effective support from the Newspa
pers of the Country, and we are
grateful for it.
H. Morgenthau, Jr.,
Secretary of the Treasury
Managing Editors, North Carolina
The splendid standing of North
Carolina in the Second War Loan
Drive is itself the best evidence of
the wonderfully cooperative job ac
complished by our newspapers and
other news agencies. If anything, I
believe newspaper backing of the
campaign exceeded that given yoOr
wholly newspaper-sponsored and en
tirely successful Scrap Drive last
It has been my privilege to thank
a number of you personally for your
splendid assistance in the campaign;
Let me here express to all of you the
appreciation of the War Finarai
Committee for your part in this .
portant phase of the war.
Congratulations on a job well doM
an assignment which when it con
again is assured of success with yell
continued enthusiasm and suppoij

Raeford, North Carolina.
.Dear Mrs. Dickson:
As you know, the United St4
Treasury's Second War Loan ca
paign in April was a complete si
cess. Final figures are not yet ava
ble, but it Is now evident that
Fifth Federal Reserve District's qu
ta of 350 million for sales to inves
tors other than commercial banks has
already been exceeded by fifty per
These excellent results were due
in large measure to the energetic
support of the press. I wish, there
fore, to convey to you my most sin
cere thanks for the splendid cooper
ation that you and your organization
gave throughout the campaign.
Your generous assistance was most
helpful not only in selling an unpre
cedented amount of Government se
curities but also in securing that
wide distribution which is so essen
tial to the economic stability of the
country. While the people of the en
tire district responded beyond our
expectations in this Second Drive,
and the number of sales was larger
than in December, it is quite appar
ent that it will be necessary for us to
reach an even larger number of indl
viduals during the next campaign.
Hugh Leach, Chairman,
United States Treasury War Finance
Committee, Fifth Federal Reserve
United States Treasury
Deputy In Town.
H. L. Mcacham, deputy adminis
trator of the War Savings Staff of
the United States Treasury was in
town Tuesday. He came especially
to discuss Hoke County's War Bond
purchase with the county chairman,
Lawrence McNeill. Mr. Meacham
praised Hoke County, the chairmen
of the Bond committee and the 2nd
War Loan Drive and said that Hoke
"has done wonderful." The govern
ment will borrow over seventy bil
lion dollars ($70,000,000,000) this
year and it is interested in getting
people to do more systematic bond
buying at regular intervals, by perl
odic purchases. In this way the gov
ernment will have something to base
their estimates on. People in the
lower Income brackets will have to
buy and sacrifice to buy if inflation
is kept down. "Bond buying," says
Meacham, "will keep taxes down.
The government is going to GET
the money for those boys and if peo
pie don't buy bonds it will be raised
by taxes. Your tax money win be
gone but you have an Investment in
your bonds," he says. s

tress recently, These Army women
