Physical Director Of Insur

“Health Through Exercise” was
the subject of an address by Arthur
E. Bagley, physiogl director of the
Metropolitan Life Insurance com
pany, at the luncheon session of
the Wilmington Ktwanis club at the
Cape Fear hotel yesterday.
He compared the human body to
an automobile, a watch, a radio or
other piece of machinery in that it
requires care and regular inspection
to keep it running smoothly.
He mentioned the many agencies
and factors offered In Wilmington
for the improvement of health and
urged the Kiwanians to use them

uce,” Chamberlain said. "As soon
as the war began we were com

things which were not essential to
us that we may concentrate our dol
lar resources upon purchase from
the United States of those enormous
mases of munitions and equipment
which it is necessary for us to have
in order to carry on this struggle.
“But let nobody suppose that, we
want to use the measures that we
have taken for any purpose other
than prosecution of the war, nor
that we are indifferent to losses
which neutrals may thereby sus
Then, praising: the British-Ameri*
c .n trade agreement of more than
a year ago and its "most-favored
nation” principle, he went on:
"One of our foremost aims in the
future will be the restoration of
international trade, which seems to
us to present the best opportunities
for restoring in turn the standard
of living and consuming power of
nations. That is the policy we have
in mind when the time comes to
turn once more from war to peace.”
Washington dispatches simulta
neously described an assurance by
Secretary of State Hull that "every
effort” would be made to modify
the British embargo on tobacco im
ports from the United States.
Chamberlain’s speech began with
a sharp thrust at the secrecy which
surrounded Hitler’s Sports Palast
speech last night. It included, also,
the first announcement that a Ger
man submarine which yesterday
tried to attack a convoy had been
sunk by British planes and war
A subsequent announcement un
closed the submarine was destroyed
only after it had sunk the B.OSa-ton
British steamer Vacllte in the con
