HERE WILL BE A TURNING POINT
jFor manv years, "up north” has been the center of at
■tion and jt is only good reasoning to believe that the
Jv will turn" after a while. There will be an exodus up
toward the south and it is much better to hold places
[we now have than to take chance on finding one when
Jie -movement shirts south. Already Mississippi is attract-;
ing the attention of the country by the discovery of OIL that
•'black gold” and the a yes of the people are fast turning j
toward this state. This is perhaps just one of the untapped j
less ;
resources. W here there is abundant wealth, there is
friction. Prosperitv, somehow. melts meaness and narrow-j
ness-in people. The great opportunities that the north once j
held, have all just about been exhausted, the places have been j
filled before our day and now. if we are wise, we will stay
here in the sunny south and help to make it everything we
want in a place to build our homes and rear our children.

Anniversary
Under the auspices of Lige Sutherland. State Organizer,
the Pickens Lodge, of which lie is Financial Secretary, cele
brated its Phh Anniversary in a very fitting and appropriate
program. The occasion was held at the Fairview M. R. i httrcli
in Pickens on Sunday, < fetober ~ \ l'(+4. Rev. L. t . ( rafton
preached a stirring sermon that made every Christian double
his determination for the work of Christ and every sinner
consider his plight. An anniversary program was rendered
to the delight of the large crowd which was present on which
F. C. Huddleston. Supreme Organizer, delivered a strong
address urging the cause of the Afros,
Mr. Sutherland, one of the charter members of the
■Afro-American Sons & Daughters, is a live wire in his com
munity and had at one time, the largest lodge in the organiza
tion. He still ranks with the leading Financial Secretaries
and his members have very high respect and admiration for
him. With the exception of Mr. Sutherland's immediate family
there is hardly anything that lies closer to his heart than
he Afro-American Sons Sc Daughters and the organization
can count on him at any time for one hundred percent co
operation.

War Bonds.
You've bought 'em to help build
the tanks, ships, planes, and guns.
You’ve bought 'em to back up
our lighting men.
You've bought 'em for every
conceivable reason to help speed
the winning of a very tough war,
and as long as that war goes on
you 11 naturally keep on buying
Bonds. BUT . . .
Next payday. even if it pinches,
w hy don't you buy an extra Bond
— just for yourself?
There are a hundred and one
ways you could use some extra
money a few years from now. Buy
that extra Bond —tuck it aw’ay —
and you'll have that extra money!
If you’re going to want some
thing extra out of life—now's the
time to get it.
When you’re cooking up some
coffee, it's that extra spoonful
for the pot” that makes a richer,
better brew. Put an extra War
Bond in the pot-and let it make
a richer, better future for you!
WAR BONDS.... to have and to hold !
