With one month ronnining, Kino*,'
Mminfdin mr*?+ .!? - :"1 "
of Individual bond-buying if th? Seventh
War Loan quota or flKti.uon it j
Series " E," ?'F" and "O" bond*
is to be met, according to a compilation
of sales made Wednesday morning
by J. R. Davis, Kings Mountain
war loan chairman.
The report, obtained from the five
local issuing agencies, showed that
only $40,781.25 in "E" bonds, the
2.9 percent interest-bearing securities
available only to individuals,
had been sold, while $30,000 in "O"
issues bad been sold.
The over-all quota ol $500,000 appeared
easily within reach since overall
MiMutlTng the "K" and "O" sales
totals. Kings Mountain cKisens must
still buy $Tl)5,218.75 in the issues for j
individuals if the quota is to be met. j
Mr. Davis |?ointed out Wednesday
that all persons buying bonds today1 j
(May 31) will automatically gain J
one month's interest, since bonds!
bought anytime during a particular j '
month . carry interest from tho '
first day of that month.
"As was expected,'7 said Mr. 1
Davis, "Kings Mountain is 'doing j (
very well on its over-all quota, but |
is lagging badly on its quota for In- |
dividual*. We have a long road to go j |
yet before that quota is reached. <
"The Mighty Seventh, as this
war loan drive is caTIed, is really <
two drives in one, and this fact t
should be realised by bond buyers, j
particularly those who are accustomel
to buying a certain amount of I
bonds during the war loan drives, i
This time the amount should be dou- <
bled, at the least.
I "More important," he continued, i
"it is the response by Individuals i
which shows onr fighting men that
! their people at home are giving them
full support. We must not fail them." i

The mine pltatoon of anti-tank
company, 302nd infantry, led by First
Lt. Samuel Humes Houston, of Kings
Mountain, received high praise for its
achievements against the Nazis during
the period February 6?March 13.
Story of the accomplishments of the
platoon led by Lt. Houston was given
in the ?V-E Day extra of The Attack,
94th infantry division newspaper
which was published in Germany.
A portion of the uewspaper account
"On the night of February 6,
when the Division was facing the famous
"Switch Position" of the'
Seigfried Line this platoon filled
its assigned mission by clearing a
path through the mine fields up to
the dragons teeth for the nssaulting
companies to attack.
"The enemy yas taken off balance
by complete surprise when the attacking
units came through these
paths to take the line of pillboxes. As
the attack progressed and a breakthrough
effected, this platoon remain
ed with the leading elements clearing
roads of mines and roadblocks.
"Again the platoon distinguushed
itself by crossing the 8aar river with
the first elements. They were assigned
a mission of clearing the road
leading from the landing aite to 8errig.
After being hampered by sniper
fire for four hours they completed
their mission info Serrig.
"On the jump-off to the Rhine
from the Diviaion 'a bridgehead across
the Saar Rivgr on Mareh 13th,
it again opened road bloeka under
the security of darkness to enable
the armor and heavy elose supporting
weapons to stay up with the forward
rifle elements. . .
"This platoon was led by 1st Lt.
Samuel H. Houston ..."
Lt. Houston wrote his wife, Mrs.
Eva Mae Sober Houston, Wat he was
j in Paris on a three-day leave when
news of victory was reeeived.
He wrote that he was on the street
when the news spread that Germany i
had surrendered and that immediately
great crowds swarmed into the
street, shouting and jubilant over
the news. When he finally extricated
himself from, the erowd, he wrote,
he was three blocks away from the
spot he had been when the news
came. He had been pushed along by
the crowd, almost unconscious that
he was moving.
