Dr. M. Earle Collins, county war bond chairman, writes The Mail that he has just received a communication from the state administrator of war savings at Jefferson City, indicating that during the months of May, June and July there were sold in Atchison County in war bonds Series “E” a total of $124,293.00. This three month sale of Series “E” bonds accomplished two things, first, the county overbought the goal which was set up by the state department for that period and second, the county more than bought enough bonds to purchase a $75,000 pursuit ship, which had been the goal set up as of May 1st. The plan was to sell enough bonds in three months to at least pay for the ship. Dr. Collins says that anyone in the county who has a suggestion to make as to the name which should be given the pursuit ship should send their suggestion to him.
