MUSEUM EXHIBIT DRAWING THRONG More Than 60 Persons Attend Preview Of Browne Amer ican Artists Group Show More than sixty people attended the prevue Sunday afternoon of the George Elmer Browne American Artists Group Exhibition at the Wil mington Museum of Art. This group of paintings has popular appeal and the majority of the visitors were enthusiastic in their praise. These colorful landscapes and interesting firi’- studies are the kind of pic '■ ■' people like instinctively. scape by George Elmer ! which was reproduced in i; i -News last Sunday, has a vp..- decided emotional quality which with the well thought out design and finished technique places it on a higher plane of quality. The landscape titled “Endurance” V... TU i-lro m o + ? ^ in ifcr mood. The color and design both contribute to this feeling. Mrs. Oeh ler has exhibited in many leading American collections and in the Paris Salon. Henrietta Sanderson’s richly paint ed portrait of an “Old Woman ’ is one of the most emotionally moving of the figure paintings. Tire head and hands of the old woman and the brass bowl she is holding glow against the rich, dark tones of her dress and the background. “Locronan,” by Kenneth How, is a delightfully presented street scene in some European village. The con trast of sunlight and shadow on the old buildings create a romantic scene. Malcolm Humphreys has received more awards for his paintings than almost any of the other young ar tists represented. His sea scape in this group, “Silver Light,” though nice in color, seems weakened by too bright a frame. Eloise Egan’s "Snow Scene” has caused a good deal of comment. It s one of the largest and most strik ing pictures in the exhibit. The heavy impasto of snow on the tranches of the trees is well handled, rhe cool, blue-white of the atmos phere is the dominant note of the painting. Miss Egan has exhibited for years in the Paris Salon and also with several ^groups in America. The portrait of little Kate Denny from Dallas has the appealing charm Qf most little girls, while “Yellow Brow,” the old Indian, by LeRoy Greene, expresses the calm stoicism of an almost extinct race. The Exhibition, with its variety of subject matter and treatment, has something to offer to all types of people. The Wilmington Museum is open to all the members of our community every day from 10 until 5 o’clock. It is to be hoped that every one will take advantage of this opportunity to see a collection of oil paintings of real merit.

C., Oct. 2— With the arrival of Company A, of the 105th Medical Regiment, nearly 200 Wilmington officers and men are now stationed here for a year’s training period. Company A, now under the com mand of Captain Bennette A. Ste phens, carries a strength of about 75 men and officers. Company I, 120th Infantry, first to arrive from Wilmington, brought 120 men and officers. The medical outfit was formerly commanded by Captain Robert B. Rodman, of Wilmington, who has since been promoted to the rank of major and transferred to an other command. Company A, after making the trip here from Wilmington by train, has been quartered in bar ranlfc frimnanv T’q mpn arp mi art ered in tents. Meanwhile, U. S. Army orders issued since the units’ arrival here have had a twofold purpose: 1. To carry out the provisions of the defense program with all possible speed and efficiency. 2. To prepare for the training and instruction of the additional thousands of recruits expected to arrive here when the federal draft bill begins operation. The army is providing for the first purpose by giving the regular army men and the inducted Na tional Guardsmen, now all form ing the Army of the United States, a full daily program of drill train ing and conditioning activity. The soldiers, nearly half of whom are raw recruits, are now being trained in the rudiments of infantry practices and regulations. The second purpose, that of pre paring for the expected draftees, is being carried out by training scores of non-commissioned of ficers to be instructors for the recruits. Among the Wilmington non-coms taking the instructors’ courses are: Sergeants P. L. Hufham, Marion W. Millis, M. V. Hufham, Freder ick P. Hatch, Greer B, Craig, and Corporals James B. Graham and Carlton Carney. Similar schools are also being conducted for buglers, artificers, company clerks, and other specia lists. In all, about 15,00U men from five southern states are now sta tioned at this government reser ation, and present plans call for an increase to a strength of 40, 000 men. Double shifts of carpen ters, plumbers, painters and other construction workers are employed in the construction of barracks and wall tents (tents with wooden flobrs and walls and canvas tops). Two divisions, the 30th and the 8th are training here at present. Others are expected soon. And meanwhile, inducted National Guardsmen from throughout the south continue to arrive daily by trainloads. 3 ADVERTISEMENT KIDNEYS MUST REMOVE EXCESS ACIDS Help 15 Miles of Kidney Tubes Flush Out Poisonous Waste If you have an excess of acids in your blood, your 15 miles of kidney tubes may be over worked.

Viee-Pres, ( J. o. CARR, Atty. i'HotTime!” Cold Night Parked Late? § Never mind...start up in jig-time jjj Bad days ahead. But here’s how Winter OIL'PLATING maintains needed lubricant in advance—for Safe Quick Starts... Your engine is up around 2 feet tall. But where is its highest oil-level? Barely 3 or 4 inches off the bottom during parking. So if you depend on crankcase oil alone, when starting up cold, you’ll wait till it climbs a good ways—and goes worming around. But now!... no more hard risky waiting for that first badly needed lubricant.;. not with your engine oil-plated for Winter by chang ing today to your correct Winter grade of Conoco Germ Processed oil. Processed into this patented oil that sells at a normal price is a rare extra substance created by man—to fasten lubricant firmly to metal. The result is oil-plating, attached to inner engine parts as closely as chrome plating is attached to bumpers. And like chrome plat ing, oil-plating doesn’t all drain down during parking, but stays up as high as the highest piston rings reach—ready to smooth out start ing stroke No. 1—ready to fight for oil economy by fighting the wear of o^-starved starting. (And the less wear, the more gasoline economy, too!) Then oil-plate now— at Your Mileage Merchant’s Conoco station.
