After I wrote I visited Peters
burg, Wrangell and Ketchikan. The
first two are interesting little
fishing towns that just "exist and
let exist." Very few Indians in them
however. Ketchikan compares with
Juneau and I . believe has nicer
buildings, both residence and bus
iness. I spent 12 hours there. One
thing about these towns, they cost
a casual so much to live. Souve
nirs and curios are other things
that are expensive. They have
built the price on ivory .carvings
and leather goods by the Indians to
such tn extent that they are cut-
mg their own throats. Most of the
merchants admit it because their
stuff isn't selling.
(Clair would like to hear from
some of his old friends. His address
may be obtained by writing to his
parents route 1, Hermiston.)

An Appeal to the Citizens
of Morrow County
Not one of us can minimize the seriousness of the two-front war which our boys are
having to fight. This war was not brought about by the misbehavior of our boys or
their desire to destroy life and property. Our boys have no choice. They gave up their
jobs, their pleasant home surroundings to fight for our existence as a free nation.
Many of our patriotic citizens have purchased bonds, some very liberally, to en
able our government to carry this war. We are told that the majority of the citizens of
Morow county have not yet purchased a single bond in this drive. This is disappointing
and disheartening to the people responsible for the success of the drive, and more so
to many patriotic citizens who have bought until it hurts.
We know that Morrow county people arc patriotic and have just as much pride in
our boys as anyone in the whole United States. Therefore, the reason must be lack of
interest, delay in carrying out your good intentions, or failure to realize your part in
this mammoth fund raising effort.
The Fifth War Loan drive will officially end July 8. We urge every citizen who has
not already purchased to the full extent of his ability to consider these facts:
More than $100,000 in bonds has to be purchased before Morrow county can re
port that it has filled its quota.
Those who do not have the funds available to purchase at this time can borrow at
your local bank to purchase certain bonds, and have 9 months in which to repay the
Scan. The interest rate v:!S be the seme as the bonds pay.
Tax bonds which can be used to pay your Federal income tax during the next
three years will count on the county quota.
You are not asked to give. You are asked.only to loan your money. $75.00 invest
ed now will pay you $100 in 10 years, and the cost of your bond will buy from 25 to
50 more of certain goods in five to 10 years from now.
Idle funds will not win the war.
If you buy now, you will save the necessity of someone calling on you. The solicit
or's time is just as dear as yours.
