There's a corner now that is vacant,
There's a voice that we hear no more,
And the hands that were always
Have ceased to, toil as of yore, -They
are folded quiet and peaceful .
Over a heart that is still and cold;
A heart that lived its life sweetly,
Whose courage can never be told.
We are so thankful for the sweet
Of your life and your love' so true,
For God seldom gives in all the world
A person just like. you.

Buy Bonds Today
The Seventh War Loan drive is
under way to run seven weeks and
to secure from the people of this
country the sum of $14,000,000,000
with which to prosecute the war
against Japan to a victorious and
There is not much doubt about the
over-subscription of the loan but the
goal for individual subscriptions is
the highest yet set. Fortunate Am
ericans, who escaped the destruction
and devastation of war, are being
asked to lend their Government J7,
000,000,000 in safety and at a good
rate of interest.
We have no doubt about the people
of Perquimans. Undoubtedly, we
will go over the top, not only in the
total of bonds purchased, but in ex
cess of the goals set for individuals
in this county.
To do less would be a reflection,
not upon our brave soldiers, sailors
and airmen, but upon the people at
home who, at little risk have safety
and security through the bravery and
sacrifice of others.
Crop Report Given
For Competing States
A brief report on the condition of
truck crops in states competing with
North Carolina in the sale of various
vegetables has been released by the
Crop Reporting Service of the State
Department of Agriculture.
With snapbeans, the harvest is al
most over in Georgia, said the re
port, but a light volume is still mov
ing from late plantings in Florida,
and marketing is at its peak in South
Carolina, with the crop regarded as
good. Prices were fatisfactory until
about May 15, when a decline di
verted part of the crop to canners.
Condition of the crop in Virginia and
Maryland is regarded as poor.
The harvesting of Irish potaties in
Kern County, California, has begun
and fairly heavy shipments should
reach Eastern markets by the end of
May. The early crop failed to size
up as rapidly as expected and grow
ers are delaying harvest in anticipa
tion of heav.er yields. In Louisiana,
harvest of the crop is general.
The condition of the crop in Missis
sippi, Alabama, Cio.fc u, U.lUi Caro
lina and Virginia is good.
Cantaloupes should begin moving
out of Georgia in early June, with
the crop considered "ii.iv In good."
Movement in South Carolina is an
ticipated by June 15.
The condition of the watermelon
crop in Georgia is reported as fair
with prospects hurt by the cool wet
weather. The harvest of the crop is
expected to begin by June 15 and in
volume by July 1. Although the
shipping season opened earlier in
Florida, it is slow in getting under
way because of the drought Plants
in South Carolina are in good condi
tion, and the crop should begin mov
ing to market on June 11.

POULTRY FREEZE MAY
MEAN MORE CHICKENS
The Government's freeze on poul
try is gradually swinging more
chickens into the State's big pro
cessing plants, according to reports
received by the State Department of
Agriculture. However, virtually all
of the poultry processed in these
plants is moving toward military
The War Food Administration
made it clear to the department the
poultry will go into civilian channels
during weeks in which the Govern
ment has filled its quota from this
area, and various processors voiced
the opinion that there will be a suf
ficient number of chickens reaching
the market by June 15 to assure
'large numbers" for the housewife

getting just prior to the freeze order.

SO YOU THINK THE
War Is Over
LET'S SEE YOU TRY TO TELL THAT
TO THE MEN ON OKINAWA, LUZON,
MINDANO, GUAM, SAIPAN, TINIAN,
IWO JIMA; IN BORNEO, BURMA,
CHINA. YEAH; AND YOU MIGHT
TELL IT TO THE JAPS
It's funny about those people. Those who
live in Tokyo don't believe a word about
the war being over. They don't shoot
like it,, either.
Sure, Germany has surrendered unconditionally.
Now all we have to do is to transport the men
and materials in Germany 14,000 miles to the
Pacific and start on the second half of this war.
All this will take a bit of doing . . . and riiore than a
bit of money, too. That's where we come in. The
mighty Seventh War Loan is now in progress. It's
dedicated to the licking of Japan. Our goal is the
biggest ever ... so we urge you to join the 1800 Club
by purchasing a $100 E Bond today.
Sign up every member in your family for this 1800
Club to help keep Perquimans at the top of the list
in meeting its War Loan quotas. Membership is open
to every person who buys a $100 E bond..
