Chairman Urges Work
To Be Completed as
Soon as Possible
Receiving excellent support from
the public, solicitors'for the l'erquim-
ans United War Fund had
half of the county's quota by Wed
nesday of this week, according to J.
E. Winslow, chairman of the drive,
who expressed hope that the drive
would be completed by the end of this
week. He urged all persons who have
not yet contributed toward the fund
to give as liberally as possible, mak
ing donations at least as great as
those given last year.
The final War Fund drive opened
Monday morning, with much enthusi
asm being shown by the solicitors,
who heard Henry LeRoy, district
chairman, explain the need for these
funds at a dinner held for the solici
tors last Friday night. Mr. LeRoy
told the group that the funds raised
this year are to be spent in main
taining the USO and 1Z United States
relief agencies for the next 15
months. He said that all funds raised
in last year's drive had been expended
and additional money was needed to
bring the entire work to a close dur
ing next year.
Township solicitors are asked to
complete the canvass of their terri
tory as rapidly as possible and to
make their reports to township
chairmen, who in turn report to Julian
A. White, treasurer of the county or
Reports from the solicitors to date
are from those mostly canvassing the
lown of Hertford, with a few of the
rural solicitors having reported to the
county chairman. From all indications

equal donations made last year, and
if equal success is obtained in other
townships, Perquimans County will be

man is requesting all township chair
men to make final reports just as soon
as solicitors have concluded the can
vass of their neighborhood.

First New Car On
Display This Week
The first
i -i
new 194(i automobile to
ue mum n m t erquimans bounty is
in Perquimans County
on display this week at the Winslow
White Motor
iThe local firm, dealers in Ford cars!
received their first new car on Thurs
day and immediately placed it on dis
play for public inspection.
While new cars are expected to be
supplied to dealers very slowly, and
sales will be restricted to doctors,
nurses and to the most essential
users, the public is able to get a pre
view of their future cars at these
early showings.
Several important changes are list
ed on the new Ford, which will pro
vide a better, more economical ride,
and better motor performance.
President Truman this week recom
mended a program for peace-time
military training for youths 18-20, but
a mixed reaction to the proposal was
noted in Washington and a strong
fight may be expected in the House
and Senate before the proposal is
disposed of. The President stated
that the nation must preserve peace
by remaining strong militarily. His
program would give each youth a
year's training prior to a 20th birth
day and all youths would be com
pelled to undergo the training.
The Senate Finance Committee has
passed a tax reduction bill and the
upper house is expected-to approve
this bill within two days. Tax reduc
tions while not as great as recom
mended by Congress are along the
same lines. Both houses voted to do
away with the $5.00 use tax on auto
mobiles, but many of the luxury tax
items wili remain for the time being.
The question of sharing the secrets
of the atomic bomb is still being dis
cussed in Washington, and a new test
is being shaped for the bomb. Navy
officials state that an old battleship
will be used as a target to determine
whether or not the bomb can destroy
so huge a ship under conditions to be
used when the test is made. Regard
ing the question of sharing the secret
of the bomb, concensus of opinion in
Washington seems to be changing
from what it was at the end of the
war with Japan.
Strikes still beset reconversion pro
grams throughout the nation, but sev
eral strikes have been settled and
motor employees are expected to vote
this week on settling the strikes hold
ing up new motor car production.
Coal miners are reported back at
work after John L. Lewis called off
the coal strike last week, but it may
take some time to rebuild the stock
pile of coal before heavy production
can get back to heavy reconversion.
OPA officials report that the end of
shoe and tire rationing is in sight,
but that the shortage of meats and
fats, oil and sugar is still serious and
may prolong the rationing of these
items. The OPA-continues to warn
the public of the danger involved
when price restrictions expire, and
calls on everybody to help in the
battle against inflation.
