Amount Of Seeds
The 1940 Star-News school garden
contest is making considerable prog
ress and is receiving fine coopera
tion from the local seed stores, Carl
Rehder, director, said yesterday.
T. W. Wood and Sons donated
500 packages of the finest quality
vegetable seeds consisting of five
The Cross Seed company donated
200 packages of the finest quality
butter beans and snap bean seeds.
Roudabush’s Seed store contributed
500 packages of giant Zinnia seeds,
All of the seeds will be sent by
Rehder during the first week in
April to the city grammar schools
participating in the contest. The
teachers will give the seeds to the
children entering the contest whose
parents are unable to pay for them.
Rehder said that more headway
has been made in the 1940 contest
since it was announced two weeks
ago than in any previous period since
the contest was started in 1927.
More Naval Kecruits
To Be Sought Here
The Wilmington district office of
the naval recruiting service, which
serves Southeastern North Caro
lina, will receive its share of the
April quota of first enlistments as
appentice seamen which has been
increased to 3,615 for the .nation as
a whole, F. L. Williams, local re
cruiting officer, reported yestar
The local station is a part of the
Carolinas district of the naval re
cruiting service, with headquarters
at Raleigh, which will be assigned
to fill part of the vacancies for the
largest quota allotted since Octo
Williams said the April quota
comprised 3.500 first enlistments as
apprentice seamen and 115 vacan
cies for the mess attendant branch
of the naval service.
The ultimate goal is a total of
145,000 for enlisted strength of the
United States Navy by July 1, 1940,
and will require national quotas of
at least 3,000 for the months of
May and June.
Williams said this means that a
large number of vacancies will
exist in the Southeastern North
Carolina district during the months
of April, May and June.
Dr. Elliot Explains

The court ruled merely that li

to make minor repairs, he said. Dr.

“A Scout is thrifty. He does not
wantonly destroy property. He
works faithfully, wastes nothing,
and makes the best use of his op
portunities. He saves his money
so that he may pay his own way,
be generous to those in need, and
helpful to w-orthy objects. He may
work for pay, but must not receive
tips for courtesies or Good Turns.”
The purpose of the Troop Thrift
program is to give the Scout a
thrifty way to learn 'the ninth
point of the Scout law.
The Troop Budget plan offers an
experience in saving and spending
that provides an incentive for the
Scout to engage in systematic sav
ing and broadens any experience
the boy may be having in the
home with a budget or an allow
The participation of the troop
committeemen, the Scoutmaster and
his assistants in the budget stimu
lates their interest not only in the
troop’s financial affairs but also
in the troop program as a whole.
This is an essential budget item
A provision for the registration of
Scouts and Scouters insures the
prompt re-registration of the troop
with a maximum number of Scouts,
for the necessary funds are avail
able. There is less need for follow
up by the Scoutmaster with Scouts
and Scouters. Individual attention
can also be given to those Scouts
who may be unable to provide
funds for their registration and
There is no need to wait Until
the troop registers to adopt the
Troop Budget plan. Even though
the troop’s present charger may ex
pire in a few months, the troop
can' set up a budget for this time
based on the amount of dues to be
paid in this time. It can readily
be seen that if the dues wore five
cents a week, that the full re-reg
istration fee for each boy could be
provided in this time. The troop
has everything to gain by immedi
ate action, so do not delay any
longer than necessary.
Much interest is being shown by
the Scouts from over the Cape Fear
area in the forthcoming Patrol
Camporee for white Scouts of this
area to be held in Whiteville April
5 and 6, with an expected attend
ance of more than four hundred
Scouts and Scouters.
The camporee will officially open
at 4 o’clock Friday afternoon on
the- Whiteville High school grounds
and will continue through Satur
day night. Patrols will report to
camporee headquarters between
that hour and 5:30 o'clock to check
in and be inspected before setting
up their camp.
A camp fire program with every
Scout participating will be Held at
S o'clock Friday night. Saturday
morning the patrols will be set out
on the adventurous trail on which
they will meet with a number o£
projects to test their Scout training
and ability. Such events as signal
ing, Scout pace, wood chopping,
first aid, fire building, knot tying,
compass, and judging will be en
The ‘T940 Patrol Camporee” is,
as its name suggests, an exposi
tion of camping under the leader
ship of the patrol leader with his
members competing against the
standards of proficiency and not
against other patrols.
Troops may enter as many pa
trols as they desire, provided there
are no fewer than five or more
than eight (including the patrol
leader) in the patrol. Senior patrol
leaders and junior assistant Scout
masters are not eligible to partici
pate, but may attend and will be
used as assistants to the camporee
Camporees for negro and Indian
Scouts are also planned, but will
be conducted several weeks later.
The public is invited to attend
the camporee and see the Scouts

ed the idea of giving the boys in
the group and Scout program un
der the direction of the school pro

the Scout office.
There are 24 members of the
troop. Some were former Scouts,
which is an asset to the group.
There are boys from all sections
of the city as well as members
from -all parts of the county.
Each Thursday the third and
fourth periods are given over to
members of the group who wish to
become Scouts. They are taken
over by Scout leaders who try to
build on interest around the mem
bers' of the class.
There is a great deal of interest
being shown by the group and oc
casionally different scouts of some
other troops are called upon to
help with the program.
There are two other troops being
formed in the council. The first is
sponsored by the Penderlea school
and the second by the Cornelius
The Scout office has received an
