Roy L. Laurix
A NAZI BOOMERANG
If Hitleb's purpose in publishing documents
discovered among Polish archives was to
breed distrust of the Allies in America and
other neutral nations it must be obvious to
any observer that he employed the wrong
strategy.
Instead of undermining sympathy for the
powers who have undertaken the difficult
task of eliminating Naziism, the papers the
Germans claim to have found in Poland's
ashes will serve only to strengthen a widely
held belief that all the Nazi regime stands
for ought to be rooted out for the lasting good
of humanity.
Washington officials in a position to know
declare the papers fraudulent. It appears from
this that the Berlin high command sent up a
dud in its propaganda campaign; or, if not
a dud, a boomerang destined to wound itself.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS LAST
A major project for highway scenic im
provement would give Wilmington a distinct
advantage in the eyes of the thousands of
tourists who come this way, whether to visit
for a while or merely to spend a night.
First impressions are often lasting impres
sions. The view one gets of a city in ap
proaching it, particularly if it is unpleasant,
is all too likely to outlive a nearer view even
though it be a thing of beauty.
For this reason it is important that all that
meets the eye in suburbs and even in areas
farther from the heart of a city be as beau
tiful as human effort can achieve. This can
be done only when dwellers beyond the city
limits unite in a beautification effort and
city residents, as well as ruralists, stop using
the edges of highways as dumping grounds.
A tour of Wilmington’s environs will reveal
that much could be done to improve the ap
pearance of roadsides. That the work would
have to be done voluntarily need not thwart
the effort. Wherever one goes, amid what
ever natural beauty the vicinity offers, tht
view is spoiled by the presence of refuse
debris of one sort and another, and a general
slovenliness which cannot fail to create a bad
impression on any beholder.
If old residents grow accustomed to it and
because of its familiarity fail to notice it,
the same cannot be said of strangers, who
will count it against the city though we dis
play our fine resources in gardens and land
scaping for their delectation.
BAILEY EXPLAINS
OENATOR BAILEY’S assurance that he is
^ doing the best he can to get a rivers and
harbors bill through congress at this session,
as expressed in his letter to the Star-News re
produced on this page, would be more reas
suring if he did not also say, “This is not
the last year in which we can hope to do
things. If we fail this year, we may hope to
succeed next.’’
The reference is to North Carolina’s deter
mined and understandable effort to get its
waterways improved, an understanding already
approved by war department engineers and
recognized generally as an essential step in
national defense. The state’s needs were pro
vided for in the bill approved by the house
of representatives which called for $412,000,
000 for national waterways. North Carolina’s
requirements, therefore, are established and
recognized, and whatever revision is deemed
advisable, in light of President Roosevelt’s
economy drive, should not exclude them.
But why should there be this demonstration
of sudden, zealous fervor for economy in one
appropriation while appropriations for other
federal enterprises are hiked well above the
President's estimates of the needs? Why pick
on rivers and harbors; why be downcast and
fearful of failure to get an appropriation so
obviously needed for one prime project and
give others more than asked for? Why,' in
heaven’s name, save at the spigot and waste
at the bunghole?
The question is not a rhetorical gesture;
the answer not hard to find. Broadly, it is
that votes are to be made in the one case
and may not be in the other. For example,
the agricultural appropriation is boosted be
cause more money for the denser population
in mid-continent and western farm belts nat
urally means increased support for the con
gressmen seeking reelection. Farm organiza
tions control a solid block of six million
votes—not to be sneezed at in an election
year. Larger appropriations for the NYA and
the CCC and other wards of government may
be counted on to swell the total votes for in
cumbents who want to retain their seats.
The gentlemen on Capitol Hill are following
the line of least resistance to the hearts of
their constituencies. Politics, then, is the an
swer to these pertinent questions.
But it will not satisfy the people of North
Carolina, who will be reluctant to accept Sen
ator Bailey's admission that another year
may pass without rivers and harbors appro
priations as the best that can be done in a
difficult situation.
HARRELSON’S CHOICE
REVIEWED
Brunswick county people originated the
idea of a nautical training school for North
Carolina, and Brunswick and New Hanover
legislators secured passage of the bill.
Col. J. W. Habrelson was thereupon ap
pointed chairman of the commission to recom
mend a site. The commission recommended
Morehead City.
These are the facts in the case.
Now hear W. B. Keziah, of Southport, in
an open letter to Col. Habrelson:
“I have not been keeping track of the nau
tical school matter. So I was rather aston
ished when I read press dispatches that you
were in Washington, advocating Morehead
City as the location for the school. I was
still more astonished when you frankly came
out and gave your reasons for championing
Moieliead City, and that before anyone asked
you the whereof.
“■iou say (Note the quotation marks; ]
put them there, but the words are yours);
‘I went to Washington and appeared on
Tuesday before the house committee on
merchant marine and fisheries and asked
that the Nautical School Law of 1900 be
amended to include the port of Morehead
City. I know that you and possibly the
most of the people of your section would
prefer to have Southport or Wilmington
designated. I tried to look at the matter
in a disinterested way and recommended
Morehead City for the following reasons;
‘It is nearest tne center of the North
Carolina coast line; nearest the center of
the North Carolina link of the inland
waterway; the state has the headquarters
of its fisheries division there, and the
state maintains a fleet of small craft
there, and the wharves are nearer to the
sea than is the case at any other port in
eastern America.'
“May 1 state, regarding your above reasons:
Morehead City is nearer the center of the
North Carolina coast line—What of that; why
did you not go on and state that Morehead
City was also in the Hatteras hurricane zone?
And why did you not add that Wilmington
and Southport were 75 to 100 miles nearer
the center of North Carolina population and
industry than Morehead City it?
Come to think of it, I am rather interest
ed in your whole line of argument, coming as
it does from a state-paid man. I feel that
you and I can get up a rousingly interesting
debate in the open forum of the state news
papers on the subject: The advantages of
Morehead City, by J. W. Harhelson vs. those
of Wilmington and Southport.
“Such an open forum discussion will be ex
tremely interesting. You, speaking as a North
Carolina State college man, whose services
are paid for by the state will be in a com
manding position to present the advantages of
one North Carolina community against an
other. I may be executive secretary of the
Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce, but
in this matter I will be just plain Bill Ke
ziah, ready at all times to treat people in a
friendly way and equally ready to stand up
and slug any and all who try to discredit the
lower North Carolina coast.’’
Mr. Keziah’s arguments are, in the view of
The Star-News, soundly based. Southport sure
ly is as good a place for the nautical training
school as Morehead City—perhaps a better
site.
Certainly Southport has the right of a
staked claim and besides, since there is no
state institution of any sort located in south
eastern North Carolina, it might be well for
the state to give us a trial.
Bruce Catton s
’!n Washington'
(Star-News Washington Correspondent)
—WASHINGTON, March SO—Top executives of
the American Federation of Labor got little
comfort out of their recent conference with As
sistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold con
cerning his building costs campaign.
No sooner were they seated in his office than
i Arnoia Degan:
“You might as well un
derstand one thing right
from (lie start: we’re not
going to stop ' indicting
labor leaders.”
The conference almost end
ed right there, and might as
well have for all the good it
did. One union head climax
ed his criticism of Arnold's
policy with a spirited defense
of individual liberty. When
he got through Arnold laugh
ed loudly.

FSA Is Proud
Of Cheap Houses
Officials of the Farm Security Administration
are quietly proud of the way they’ve cut farm
home building costs. One their newest reset
tlement projects, they're putting up four and
five-room ’dobe-and-wood "apartment houses’
at a cost less than $1300 per family.
If they’d been able to build that way • from
the start the history of the resettlement projects
would be considerably different. Big trouble
there has been that the homes buiit W'ere too
fancy, lienee too costly; chief reason for that
(though you'll never get anyone to admit it)
was the interest taken in the projects by Mrs.
Roosevelt. She got behind the movement in
its early days and plugged so hard for bath
rooms, full basements, central heating and
other refinements that the whole business got
off to a more expensive start than had been
figured on.

G. 0. P. Congressmen
Split ,On Labor
Republican congressmen caucused the other
evening and decided to delay taking a stand on
the Smith amendments to the Wagner act until
members had had more time to study them. In
tersting part was the back-stage discussion of
the labor vote and the G. O. P.’s attitude to it.
Quite a number strongly oppose wooing the
labor vote by any concession in regard to the
Wagner act.
Said one: “Our platform will certainly
demand sharp revision of the law. If labor
takes the attitude that the law just mustn’t
he touched, or mustn't be touched very
hard, it’d be foolish for us to worry about
labor.”
Ohio Republicans
Battle Hatch Bill
Disgruntled Democrats have charged that
passage of the Hatch act extension will hand
the next election to the Republicans, since the
dominant state political machines—which the
bill would wreck—are mostly Democratic. Sen
ate Republicans have said little and quietly
voted for the bill en bloc.
In Ohio, though, the Republicans are in
charge; and Ohio Republicans on Capitol Hill
are beginning to get loud cries of protest from
back home, the complaint being that the law
would handicap the party terribiy, and won’t
you please get smart and vote against it?
Editorial Comments
From Other Angles
ARNOLD WINS
New York Herald Tribune
Mr. Thurman Arnold, assistant attorney gen
eral in charge of anti-trusc prosecutions, has
won the first round in his fight to hold labor
unions accountable to the criminal provisions
of the Sherman law. Judge Peyton Gordon, of
the federal district court in Washington, has
ruled that the Clayton act “does not give, and
was sot intended to give, to labor organizations
a blanket exemption from the operation of the
anti-trust, laws."
The case is that of a local of the Interna
tional Brotherhood of Teamsters, belonging to
the American Federation of Labor, which is ac
cused of outrageously coercive tactics in an at
tempt to drive to the wall a rival union, a lo
cal of the International Brotherhood of Operat
ing Engineers, also an A. F. of L. affiliate. To
prevent members of the latter from driving and
operating concrete mixer trucks the defendant,
organization, it is charged, intimidated the em
ploying companies into breaking contracts with
the engineers' local, coerced drivers into switch
ing to the teamsters, called strikes and, in one
way or another, held up many large govern
ment and private construction projects. Coun
sel for the accused entered a demurrer to the
indictment, answering, in effect: “AVhat of it?’’
It was their contention, that, regardless of
labor's behavior, the Clayton act free it from
anti-trust prosecution.
Judge Gordon's “no” follows repeated deci
sions of the supreme court that unions may be
si prosecuted. In civil litigation under the anti
trust statutes, the supreme court has held unions
liable for damages, notably in the famous Dan
bury hatters case before the passage of the
Clayton act and, after its passage, in the
Coronado coal case. In 1927 in U. S. vs. Brims,
a criminal case, it found against a union whose
members refused to handle woodwork manu
factured by non-union workers.
However, no federal court, so far as the rec
ords show, has passed before on the question
whether a jurisdictional dispute, however con
ducted, may be considered within the category
of anti-trust offenses, and herein lies the signi
ficance pf Judge Gordon’s ruling.
Mr. Arnold, as we know, has insisted that it
does. He has included in his list of "unreason
able restraints” by unions those designed o
"destroy an established and legitimate sys em
of collective bargaining.” And in substantiation

COOPER BENEFITS
Dear Sir: . _
Wilmington, in its isolation from
the benefits of favors from the
centralized state government at Ra
leigh, has for years on end been
notoriously a mistreated stepchild.
And this has been true to a large
extent as regards recognition from
Washington.
But ever since Mayor Tom Cooper
began running for governof, which
he did a long time ago by hollering
about centralization of government
in Raleigh, Wilmington has been
getting more and more attention
from Raleigh and bigger and better
appropriations out of Washington.
The millions of dollars that have
been given Wilmington for low
cost houses and street improve
ments in the past year certainly
show it pays to have some local
man who will force state and na
tional politicians to recognize that
Wilmington really does exist and
does have men who can get its side
of the picture on the front pages
of the newspapers.
Yours very truly,

Tve Got a Good Mind to Throw That Guy Over’ " I
SCOUT NEWS
By JACK STILLMAN
For the past four years the Cape
Fear Area council has more than
doubled in enrollment, activities and
general scout work.
Four years ago there were a few
more than 600 Scouts and 27 troops
with no Cubs in the council. Today
there are 1,281 Scouts, 91 Cubs and
5S units of Scouts. The council has
jumped from two organized districts
to six.
Area scouters are realizing the
impossibility for one man to serve
each unit to the best of his ability
with such a large number under his
jurisdiction. Steps are now being
taken to secure an assistant for this
area
The new assistant will be a field
man who’s main responsibility w'ill
be that of keeping a closer relation
ship b'-tween the troops and Scout
leaders. This can never be accom
plished ■with the services of only one
man with such a large group.
Executive John J. Sigwald of Wil
son has been having a little troub'e
in keeping an assistant executive
lately.
The last six years has seen three
assistant executives under Sigwald
in the East Carolina Council of Boy
Scouts. Each followed the other's
footsteps and eventually got higher
positions in Scouting.
In 1934 Eeon Keaton became as
sistant executive in Wilson. He
married. He underwent an appendici
tis operation, and then he received
his promotion and left.
Tn 1935 Ralph Mozo was appointed
Keaton’s successor. Mozo married.
He later had an appendicitis opera
tion. Still later he was promoted to
an executiveship.
In 1937 George W. Thomason was
appointed assistant to Sigwald. Re
cently he was married. And more re
cently still he had an appendicitis
operation. Wednesday he was pro
moted to the executiveship of a new
North Carolina Scout Council.
The fifth annual camporee con
ducted for Scouts of the Cape Fear
Area will be held for this section in
Whiteville on the high school
grounds April 5 and 6.
In addition to the regular camp
oree events, cooing, proper camp set
up, leadership of patrol officers, and
other activities, the camporee will
have as one of its features the "ad
venture trial.”
This is a trail made up of ten sta
tions and every Scout participating
in the camporee will be expected to
visit each station and take part in
the program there.
All events except first aid will be
done-on an individual basis with
average Scout scores being averaged
in the patrol scores.
The first aid event will be com
posed of a team of one patient with
the other members of the patrol
acting as first aiders.
Patrol ribbons will be awarded for
the proficiency of patrol competition.
Blue ribbons will be awarded for a
final score of 900 or more points, red
for a score of 700 to 899 and white
for a final score of 500 to 699.
Stations to be made on the “ad
venture trail” will be as follows:
(1) Compass: a circle will be made
m the ground to represent a compass
■vith North spotted. Stakes will plac
ed at propei' points and Scouts will
Diace marked cards at the proper
stakes. Each error will take off one

possible.

ed one or more questions on Tender
foot requirments. A possible score
of 15.
(4) Knot Tying: In the form of a
relay race Scouts will test their
knowledge of knots and knot tying.
A possible score of 15.
(5) Signaling: A series of 45 let
ters of the alphabet w 11 he sent to
patrols. Each error counts cff 1-3
point. Possible score 15.
(6) Duck on a Rock: Can is plac
ed on a log or large rock. Each boy
gets three throws and if he knocks
the can off in three throws, the score
is perfect. Possible scire 15.
(7) Scout Pace: Each patrol leader
will set the pace for his patrol, or
start each Scout ten seconds apart
and Score individually. Or.e point will
be taken off for every ten feet. Pa
trols will go at Scout pace for six
minutes as directed and when the
whistle blows all Scouts will stop in
their tracks for measurements. The
number of paces from the finish (1-2
mile mark) line will be measured for
each Scout and average taken for
each patrol.
wood Chopping: Patrols line
up and each Scout will take two licks
until the log- is chopped in half.
(9) Each scout prepares wood and
starts a fire. The first to get a blaze
high enough to burn a string ap
proximately two feet above the fire
will win this event.
(10) First Aid: This event will
compose of teams consisting of one
member of each patrol acting as a
patient with others acting as first
aiders.
The 1940 Patrol Camporee will be ,
an exposition of patrol camping in
which each unit will compete against
a fixed standard of proficiency. Coun
cil troops may enter as many pa
trols as desired, provided there be ,
no fewer than five or more than eight
members in the patrol. “Enter an x- <
