Where's The Answer
From all indications there has been
a serious breakdown of the supply
line on the home front since the end
of the war with Germany. House
wives with OPA coupons for canning
sugar, bacon, fat back, lard and
many other items are finding it prac
tically impossible to trade these cou
pons for the badly needed articles.
Reports from residents of this com
munity show that meat, of the break
fast type, is almost non-existent and
bushels of fruit, purchased for can
ning, has rotted and been thrown
away because sugar could not be ob
tained to preserve the same. Local
stores report that they are receiving
precious little sugar, if any, and do
ot have sufficient quantity to honor
the regular sugar coupons, to say
nothing of the additional allotments
for canning purposes.
There must be an answer to this
situation, but, frankly, we do not
know where it is. We have read of
other communities facing this same
problem and local committees are be
ing formed to put sufficient pressure
on the proper places to relieve the
condition. No doubt if such a com
mittee was formed here and the facts
pertaining to local shortages were
placed before the proper government
authorities, the condition here could

diminished to just one part of the
globe, and many members of the
armed forces are being discharged,
the situation surrounding the supply
ing of the home front should be eased
instead of becoming worse.
The present conditions simply mean
fertilizer for the growth of a black
market unless steps are taken to see
that this community receives at. least
its fair share of these commodities.

SOIL CONSERVATION NOTES
During the month of July every
farmer in Perquimans County has
been more conscious of the need for
better drainage, especially farmers
living in certain sections of the
county. The Albemarle Soil Conserv
ation District is glad to give any
technical assistance to farmers such
as staking off ditches to grade or de
termining the most practical way in
which to drain a fm.
Mrs. Leroy Nixon of the Chapanoke
community recently had the Soil Con
servation technicians to make a topo
graphical survey of a large portion
of her farm to determine the best
way to drain it.
Twenty farmers in Perquimans
County have recently indicated a de
sire to have conservation plans work
ed out for their farms.
Two farmers, M. C. Boyce of Chap
anoke community and H. L. Williams
of Whiteston community planted -cro-talaria
for the first time this spring.
Both farmers have a good stand .and
upon visiting Mr. Williams' field last
week it was observed that the cro
talaria was waist high and blooming.

should dispose of its surplus holdings
in a business-like way, with the idea
of salvaging as much money as pos

obligations. While some of the prop

months or years, if necessany, to se

What Will End
War With Japan?
In any discussion as to the pos
sible length of the war with Japan,
there is repeated reference to the
enemy's "will to fight," and some of
the predictions as to the length of the
struggle seem to be based exclusively
upon the belief that the Japanese will
to fight will not vanish.
. In this connection, it is being as
sumed that the purpose of the bomb
ing raids upon Japanese centers is
mysteriously connected with a belief
that the .bombs will destroy the ene
my's will to resist, lhis, we think,
is erroneous. The purpose of our
bombing is to destroy the enemy's
ability to resist.
, Regardless of the Japanese will to

means of waging war are no longer J
available. -The bombing campaign)
contained millions of fightingmen.
While it is possible that the bomb
ing and blockade of Japan might
bring about our complete victory, the
chances are that an invasion of the
home islands will be necessary. The
possibility also exists that this inva
sion will result in prolonged fighting
and exceedingly heavy losses. Nev
