Neither Anderson nor Van Leer v "n receive any extra compensa t r,n. except for expenses. The office probably will be open fd bv November 1. Anderson and Van Leer will go to Washington within the next few days to arrange for office space. Governor Hoey •i tio.v bps HmiDrtf'rs nrnV»nKlir would be in the Mayflower hotel. Principal purpose of the office will be to attract war industries ?nd defense capital to North Caro lina. Governor Hoev said. The of fice will not be a lobby headquar ters. he added, but will serve as a clearing house of all state matters which have a federal bearing. For instance, if some sort of a oroblem should arise in the con struction of the Blue Ridge Park way. the North Carolina office in Washington might be asked to help straighten out the problem, he said. "It will be manifest to the peo ple of the state that with this sort of a setup in Washington that North Carolina will be making a bid for business on a business bas is" Hoev said. -■It is not a lobbying scheme and will not be pursued in high pres sure method. We will make an ef fort to acquaint those in charge of war industries and activities of the resources and possibilities of North Carolina and to do our ut most to see that the state gets comparable benefits from expendi tures which are made and in which we will be prepared to render one hundred per cent value for every dollar received.” Special effort will be made, he added, to procure industries which will survive “after the feverish ac tivities of wartime preparation is over." JAPAN ABROGRATES FUR SEALS ACCORD (Continued From Page One) rention requires one year’s notice (or termination. The Tokyo announcement said proposals for revisions would be submitted. Secretary Hull said the notice had not yet been received here and that there had been no official advance intimation that Japan contemplated such action. In 1926. however, Japan raised the question of revision but after long discussions, no action was taken. Other parties to the agreement were Great Britain and Russia. It bound them to prevent the killing, capturing or pursuit of fur seals in the waters of the North Pacific. X lllls famous rye whiskey hos O.

If they were merely to im plement the “new order’’ in Europe by political understand ings, London .can forget them and get on with the war. The British fleet has a ponderous veto power to exercise. If those meetings had a military objective in view, however, it must be ways and means of checkmat ing British sea power in the Med terranean. There is ample evid ence that whatever plans for an Axis drive eastward this winter were hatched at Brenner pass nearly three weeks ago are en countering serious obstacles of which the most formidable is the British Mediterranean fleet. Whether Italian naval strength, supplemented by French ships operated by German or Italian crews, could match Eritish sea power available on that front is conjectural. The obvious fact, how ever, is that the bogging down of the Italian drive in Egypt, stalled for five weeks at Siddi Barranf, the resistance of Turkey and Greece to Axis schemes, and even the uncertainty as to Russia’s course, all are traceable to British sea power. Home has found, it expedient to offer, for home consumption, ap parently highly colored accounts of Italian naval “victories” in both the Mediterranean and the Red sea. The London admiralty flatly contradicts Rome and pictures these incidents as minor Italian disasters. The plain fact, vouched for by American and other neutral press observers permitted to sail on British war vessels seeking con tacts with the Italian fleet, is that the British continue to use the Mediterranean and the Red sea almost at will. Even the Rome accounts of the Red sea fight tell of British troopships bringing re enforcements to Egypt. Half a dozen were said to have been sunk with all hands. London says none were hit. What that means is that British forces in Egypt have been and are being increased under naval protection while the Italian col umn there probably has received no substantial re - enforcements since its jump-off from Lybia. Hitler’s personal pilgrimage to France and Spain is rather mean ingless unless it had immediate military objectives. Obtaining use of French war craft and inducing Spain to facilitate an attack on Gibraltar are about the only mili tary motives that would warrant Hitler’s personal appearance on the scene so far from home. And if that was his mission, it only strengthens the conclusion that Britain’s sea power is the big stumbling block in the Axis path way, wherever its leaders turn. 3 MURRAY AND GIRL INJURED IN WRECK Reported In ‘Fair’ Condition Following Accident One Mile North Of Burgaw Ellie Murray, of Burgaw, and his -young daughter, Cornelia Annie Alur ray, were in a ‘ fair” condition at James Walker Memorial hospital last night after being seriously injured yesterday morning about 10 o’clock in an automobile accident a mile north of Burgaw.

The truck, ho said, was operated by Ray Moore, of Wilson. No charges had been preferred last night. Less seriously injured in the crash and treated but not admitted to James Walker Memorial hospital was Mrs. Murray who was with her husband and daughter in the auto mobile at the time of the accident. Wallace Proposes Gifts Of Food If Britain Wins SPRINGFIELD, 111., Oct. 23—(.¥! —Henry A. Wallace proposed to day that gifts of American food supplies be sent to Europe, if England wins the war, to help re store “democratic and friendly gov ernments” and eventually revive the foreign market for American agriculture. The democratic vice-presidential nominee said such a program held i the only hope that American farm ers might ultimately benefit from the conflict abroad.

Bayard Clark of Fayette ville was guest speaker at the Ki wanis club meeting in the Cape Fear hotel yesterday, with the largest at tendance the club has had in some months. Mr. Clark dwelt on con gressional burdens in planning and financing the national defense pro gram, outlining briefly the steps in that undertaking. There was applause when, in dis cussing the conscription of wealth, he declared that the house of rep resentatives was determined that German ownership of stock in Amer ican industries should not block the rearmament effort or handicap the training of the boys who are to be drafted for military service next week. “The defense program,” he said, “is so great and so comprehensive that a start on it has hardly yet be gun.” He mentioned the work in volved in planning a two - ocean navy and the need for a balance be tween ships and planes, which had to be worked out like a mathematical problem. He paid a glowing tribute to the chief of staff, General Mar shall, whom, he said, had gained in he ‘‘came to the Hill” to discuss army matters. This army bill and the necessary appropriations neces sarily required much time for fram ing, that it should work no unneces sary hardship on anybody. “I have attended many sessions of congress,” he explained, ‘‘but never experienced such a concerted drive on any legislation as was made against the conscription bill." In addition to these measures, there was the matter of a fifth column cam paign to be considered. In placing this in the hands of the FBI, he de clared, and in appropriating suffi cient money for its operatives to in vestigate every complaint brought before it, the congress had accom plished a major stroke in construc tive legislation. Then there was the matter of cementing United States relations with the Latin American republics, resulting in the appropri ation of a $500,000,000 loan fund to be administery by the Import and Export bank. These measures all took time, and while he is in favor of all possible speed in the defense effort he still felt that nothing should be done in so great an emergency without careful consideration and thorough weighing from all angles. On taxation, he told his audience that the two major bills approved at the present session would not foot the defense bill and that when congress meets in the next session there will have to be additional levies. The present recesses kept allowing members some sort of relief after the hard work they have been doing since the first ot the year. Prior to Mr. Clark’s address Harry Solomon offered a resolution con cerning Wilmington’s water situa tion, which read: ‘‘Whereas, the city has received unfavorable publicity as a result of the deplorable water situation, and: “Whereas, the citizens of Wil mington have been subjected to seemingly unnecessary delay in cor recting this situation: now, "Therefore, be it resolved, that the Wilmington Kiwanis club is deeply concerned for the welfare of Wil mington and its citizens, as a result of the water situation; and. "Be it further resolved that the city officials be required forthwith to correct this situation by whatever means are necessary. “Be it further resolved that this club appoint a committee to present this resolution to the city commis sion, and ask assurance that the situation will be immediately alle viated.” The resolution was approved by vote of the meeting. Miss Mary B. Williams, popularly known as “the daughter of Kiwanis,” sang three songs: “Smiles,” in which the members joined in the chorus; “Whistle While You Work,” and "All Hail America,” a new song composed by a Kiwanian of Iowa, which has a striking martial lilt. Guests were Fred Willetts. E- J. Taylor. Horace Pearsall and B. S. Whaley. Bishop Darst, honorary member, was also present. Joe Fox, former member, was wVcomed back into membership.
