Jj$7e ave Nol Known Hunger...
"Pray send me something to eat, for you know that I am al-
tiitw.ways hungry, so much that I cannot sleep." This was the prayer
' ''"of an llyear-cld German child in Zwickau in the Russian zone.
Miwr , . ,
j. Fortunately, this child's prayer was answered because of a
rftvpa':ticular church child-feeding program made possible jn that
'""'"city End elsewhere by donations of American churches. But there
are thm.s:nds of other small voices crying daily for food in Europe
iuln without answer.
To still these voices and to hrlp restore the desire to live to
.oung.'itcrs who perhaps have never in all their lives had their
um. hunger completely satisfied, churches in this country are spon
soring the Christian Rural Overseas program, CROP,
in Entire populations in some cities and provinces are desner-
Pately in want. Now prisoners of war are returning from other
countries end those from Russia are in filthy rags and so undcr
') fed that their health is permanently damaged. A Red Cross work-
'; "Tr, seeing them leave a transport train, described them as "hu
man wrecks, hollow-yed, hollow-checked, painfully trailing them
selves along, covered with ulcers, still showing marks of a hurdly
recovered attack of typhus, the living picture of sorrow and mis
ery." ' Germany and other nations, still in the throes of war's after
niath, are not sitting idle, begging and awaiting food from Amer- .
ica. Through ellorts of I'rotesiant territorial churches Hilfswerk
was horn in Germany in 1845. With headquarters at Stuttgart,
Hilfswerk administers relief throughout the country.
In 194(i, despite terrible poverty, and even when supplies
from abroad started coming in. Germans contributed to the less
fortunate in their nation more than the total amount sent in from
g. Church relief agencies in Sweden and Switzerland were the
irst loreign supporters of Hilfswerk, and help later came from
lAmerica, South America. liridin, Canada, and Australia.
In contributing food to the CROP train we're not doling out
from our horn of plenty to whining beggars who have no potential
ity of ever pulling their share of the load in our world. We're
working together with them, laying with hope, foundations for a
future unmarred by war.
Food for the CROP box car in this county is being collected
now. Neglecting or forgetting to contribute means that other
youngsters, like the German child in Zwickau, cry themselves to
sleep and awake jgnin with tears on their clucks we can dry
those tears. (Portions of the above were tjken from the Decem
ber issue of Highroad).

Beaufcrt Junior Women's club and all those who cooperated
with them in decorating Front street deserve a red and green
Mffeather in their cap.
' At the moment, colored' lights have net bcea. w laced along
Jurner street but there will be-WCTtrtttrtrH'Mn- promised, as
"ebon irs more electric cord and IwrWlifP ubtalued.
The Junior Woman's club has beautified the colored strings
of light by draping the cords with Spanish moss. As usual,, in
projects of this type, perhaps the well-known "one or two" did
the work, but the group as a whole initiated the project. The
town looks pretty as a Christmas card and again we say, "Thanks."

TO THE EDITOR
Editor of THE NEWS-TIMES
Beaufort, N. C.
This is a plea for help; a call for
action on the part oi all Ocraco
kers. The roads at Ocracoke have been
anything for us to brag about, but
during the past few years they
have become nothing more than
water holes. After the least bit of
rain it becomes Impossible for the
children to get to school without
the aid of knee boots. We feel that
this deplorable condition is the re
sult of the extra duty imposed on
the roads by the heavy Navy ve
hicles during the war. During the
past Democratic primaries we
heard a lot about the improvement
of rural roads. We feel there is a
chance that Ocracoke might be
included in Governor-elect Scott's
program of "all weather roads."
Many of you will say that we
have heard promises but hove seen
little action. It has been said that
we should be content to stay out
on this sand pit and lend color to
the state. We believe the time for
action is now) now is the time for
us to speak up. We are not asking
for too much when we plea for a
small amount of sand and crushed
rock for our roads. We invite all
friends of the Island to join us in
ouur campaign for better roads.
Yours for better roads,
Troy S. Williams
