Mr. MacRae’s idea would be to make the school one for the entire South. At first the school would be operated simply, with membership at first open to professors of south ern universities and colleges and their friends. In his talk before the Knoxville Rotary club, Mr. MacRae said, Perhaps we can most quickly and clearly arrive at the principles in which we are interested by say ing that they will at all times and under all circumstances recognize the values and importance of the individual to his associates and to the state. "They will recognize the advan tages of his full development and place before him his greatest op portunity. "The succesful family is the ob jective and everthing must be shaped to contribute to that end. From the scientific standpoint the happiness of the individual will be recognized as contribution to his efficiency and his value to his associates. "In line with Dr. Hoskins’ ad dress, we will realize that it is to out greatest advantage, and the means are within our reach, to make- farm life more attractive than is the life in cities. The far mer must be considered a scientist in the making. we Deueve that America will escape—will protect herself against the devastating influence of the Axis powers. In such a case it "ill again have the opportunity of showing to the world the benefits of democracy due to the freedom of the individual and the enlight •bent which comes with liberty.” The future of the South de pends on our using our best brains fw its deveopment,” Dr. Hoskins stated last June, “We have not Psed the men we have trained in the south to build the section.

War Interpretive (Continued from Page One) of Crete, quickly converted into an advanced base from which to carry the war to Italy itself and to menace the lifeline of the Libyan army across the Mediter ranean. This base figured in the naval air attack on Taranto a month ago which London claimed result ed in disabling half of Italy’s en tire battle line. From Crete a net is being drawn now by British sea power around the Dodecanese islands, the Italian advanced bases which served as springboards for air raids on Pal estine and Egypt. With Greece an ally, British submarines and planes also are able now to harass the vital Italian sea routes across the Adriatic by which the Albanian army must be supplied. Altogether, since the attack on Greece six weeks ago, the Italian navy has sustained such blows and has been forced into such a parlous strategic situation that it appears to be pretty well finished as an offensive threat. Probably Said “Yes” Only history is likely to disclose to what extent Admiral Cavagnari concurred in the decision to at tempt the conquest of Greece. His record and the operation of dicta torships suggest that he probably said “yes”, though perhaps with out enthusiasm. Admiral Cavagnari, it is noted, survived II Duce’s cabinet purge a year ago when he reported the Fascist fleet to be ready for action, to the last button on the last uni form, whereas the army and air commanders acknowledged their forces to be wanting in some par ticulars. ouDsequeni events indicate ne may have erred in 1939 and very likely he failed a year later to oppose the costly Grecian adven ture. It seems hardly possible, however, that the Italian naval leadership failed to realize the risks involved. In any event it is Admiral Cavagnari and not II Duce who steps down. Even more than Marshall Bado glio and General Vecchi, the army leaders who resigned last week, the naval chief of staff is in a position to plead that he was a victim of circumstances beyond his control. Italy’s challenge of Britain’s sea power has been under foriirdable handicaps from the start. Italy has virtually no coal, no iron, and no oil—all primary requirements of navies. The Fascist fleet’s tendency to stick closely to its home bases could be due to the necessity to hoard fuel. Because of the British blockade, oil can not now be ob tained by sea. By one estimate, recent overland shipments have amounted to only 30,000 tons a month out of a required 200,000 tons. Beyond these deficiencies, a more basic handicap to Fascist successes was suggested privately by an American army officer who served for years as military at tache at Rome. The primary explanation for the failures on land and sea, he as serted, was that the war was un popular with the Italian people. “It was forced down their throats,” he expressed it. 3 FARM MEET PLANNED AT SUPPLY TUESDAY Mrs. Cornelia C. Morris, Extension Specialist, Will Address Gathering SOUTHPORT, Dec. 8.—With the hope of being able to aid the men and women of Erunswick county, especially the women, In interesting their incomes at home,-Mrs. Marion S. Dosher, the Brunswick Home Demonstration agent is staging a meeting in the Methodist church at Supply, Tuesday evening at 1:30 o'clock. All interested parties are urged to attend. At the request of Mrs. Dosher, Mrs. Cornelia C. Morris, extension specialist in marketing, from Ra leigh, will be present to discuss vari ous works and to assist in finding markets for the many articles of handicraft that can be made from the abundant sources of raw mater ial in Brunswick county. Mrs. Dosher pointed out that be fore products can be marketed there is much to learn regarding the manu facture, etc. Much information re garding this can be obtained by at tending the meeting Tuesday. BRITISH FINANCIAL PLAN IS PROPOSED (Continued from Page One) posed would free Britain from re strictions of the Johnson act pro hibiting private loans from the United States to Qations which have defaulted on their war debts. The Utah senator advocated transferring control of all British colonies in this hemisphere except Canada and islands adjacent to Canada. This, he said, would re lieve Britain of the burden of de fending these countries and pro vide the United States with stra tegic military and naval outposts. He suggested that the transfer be effecive until two years after the European war is terminated. Other senators said England should offer insular possessions in this hemisphere, English invest ments in the United States or simi lar collateral in return for loans. This exchange of views was Drompted by recent discussions by United States and British govern ment officials of Britain’s future ability to finance the war. Sir Frederick Phillips, British under secretary of the treasury, con ferred with Secretary of the Treas ury Morgenthau last week and is scheduled to see him again tomor row. ‘We must follow a policy of real ism.” Senator Danaher (R-Conn) said. “That first involves our own national interests. That’s just what Great Britain does in every inter national strategism in which she is involved.” Senators Clark (D-Mo) and Holt (D-WVa) viewed the campaign for British loans as an attempt to in volve the United States in the pres ent war. 4 MANY NAZI PLANES SMASH AT LONDON (Continued from Page One) their bombs while over open coun try, it was said. The British were reported turned back, with one plane shot down. Returning pilots said the weath er favored German attacks, moon light permitting good visibility. After the third hour of bombard ment, numerous fires were observ ed. The flames were said to en shroud various city blocks. One gas container exploded with a terrific roar when hit, it was reported. A number of oil tanks also were reported fired. The pilots claimed British pur suit planes and anti-aircraft artil lery were unable to prevent the Germans reaching London. The German radio said the silent approach enabled the raiders to arrive over London before sirens could be sounded and that Lon doners became aware of the attack only when flares were dropped, fol lowed immediately by a rain of bombs. The high command announced that British bombers attacked oc cupied areas and western Ger many and slightly damaged fac tories in three places. Six persons were killed in one raid and several were injured, the communique said. BRITISH WARSHIPS HUNT FOR RAIDER (Continued from Page ^ne) ports said she broke off the fight and fled aflame. The German raider has not been identeifed but authoritative sources say there are prowling Nazi motor ships equipped with special en gines, ultra-modern cannon and electric, centralized fire control which have ben causing the Brit ish much concern. Unless the raider already has been caught, British circles said, it is likely that an aircraft carrier will join the hunt to clear the South Atlantic of the German threat to a vital British foodline. While a Uruguayan commission has not yet reported the time nec essary to make the Carnarvon Cas tle seaworthy, reports in British circles said she would leave some time Tuesday to rejoin the South Atlantic anti-raider patrol. Capt. Hardy called her damage ‘somewhat spectacular” but “ra ther superficial and easy to re pair.” She showed a dozen hits on the starboard side and the scars of a fire which spread over two decks before being extinguished. 4 ITALIAN NAVAL CHIEF RESIGNS; GENERALS KILLED (Continued from Page One) air crashes have taken a toll of armistice | commission officers and the second time they have taken the lives of high Italian of ficers. Mystery (Balbo died last June 29 when the plane he was flying over Tobruk, Libya, crashed. Italians said he was shot down by a British warplane but the British denied this and other sources said his death was a mystery that might never be explained. (Last Oct. 10 three French and four German officers, members of the French-German Armistice Com mission, and six German soldiers were killed when their plane fell into the Mediterranean in a severe storm when they w'ere flying from North Africa to France, No names of the victims were announced) Within three days now, all Italy’s fighting services except the air force have changed leaders. Since the start of the Greek invasion — admit tedly still in reverse — there have been four major shifts, two in the top command and two on the front, in this order; 1. in Albania, undersecretary or War Gen. Ubaldo Soddu sent to the front to shake up the offensive against Greece (presumably super seding; Gen. Visconti Prasa). 2. Chief of the Italian general staff Marshal Pietro Badoglio, “Italy’s Hindenburg,” succeeded by Gen. Ugo Cavallero. 3. In the Dodecanese islands, Gen eral Count Cesare Maria De Vecchi Di Vai Cismon, commander there and one of the original big four ot Fascism, replaced by Gen. Ettore Bastico. As with Marshal Badoglio and Gen. De Vecchi, it was announced merely that Admiral Cavagnari had resigned. No explanation was given. The official announcement simply said he was being replaced at his own request. His successor, both as undersecre tary of the navy and as chief of staff of the navy, is Admiral Arturo Riccardi. At the same time, Mussolini elevat ed two more of his admirals. He made Admiral Inigo Campione vice chief of the navy staff and appoint ed Admiral Angelo Jaechini "com mander of the fleet on the sea.’’ YOUNG MAN • LONDON, Dec. 8.— </P) —British naval circles expressed belief to night that the appointment of Admiral Angelo Jaechini as com mander of Italy’s “fleet on the sea" might foreshadow a more offensive spirit by Fascist naval forces. Jaechini, former Italian naval at tache here, was described as a young man for so important a command. NAZI PLANES BOMB LONDON 9 HOURS (Continued from Page One) bombing of Coventry a month ago. Nazi planes appeared to be tak ing a routh-to-north route across the shrapnel-filled skies. An ambulance station and a Ro man Catholic church were struck. Shops, homes and offices collapsed but the casualties were not heavy in first reports. Many injured by flying glass were treated at neigh borhood first aid stations. A number of persons were re ported trapped in an air raid shel ter east of London near the Thames river estuary when one bomb struck nearby. A rectory and cottages were damaged in a raid on a. southeast village. The authoritative Press associa tion’s expert was reminded of the ruinous assault on the Midlands city as the raiders, breaking through the outer circles of anti aircraft fire, came over the city singly or in groups of three and four, varying the direction of ap proach. The bombs struck various parts of the city, sometimes singly and sometimes in series or "sticks.” In one residential district at least sixty incendiaries fell and burst. A few fires broke out in one dis trict but they were quickly extin guished. The British set up the heaviest drumfire barrage heard in the past two weeks. 4 British-U. S.

FIREWORKS WARNING SOUNDED BY POUCE Department Receives Numerous Calls To Halt Noise Within The City Police, liarrassed last night by nu merous calls to stop people from shooting fireworks, warned residents that the shootnig of fireworks with in the city limits is against the law. The officers said that many peo ple had the erroneous impression that shooting fireworks in their own yard was all right. However, the ordinance forbids the practice any where within the city limits. GREEKS CAPTURE ARGIROC ASTRO (Continued from Page One) that two days of mopping up around the mountain-fringed town had been completed. Three days of celebration were ordered to mark this major suc cess. It meant that the entire Italian line in the frontier region had collapsed. Jubilant crowds poured into the streets of this age old capital. The government spokesman said: “Greek troops occupied Argirocas tro at 12:15 p. m. (5:15 a. m., E.S.T.). It is an important victory. “Very large quantities of mate rials and many prisoners were taken. They are uncounted yet. “The premier (General John Me taxas) has been able to communi cate by telephone with the com manding officer of the forces which occupied Argirocastro and has con gratulated him. “As for the rest there is nothing important to announce.

' Front dispatches and a communi que of the British Royal Air force, which is an integral factor in the Greek advance into Albania, pic tured a general withdrawal of Italian forces under aerial bom bardment, of die-hard resistance by rearguard outposts, or roads jammed with refugees fleeing tow'ard Ti rana, Albanian capital, and of Italian prisoners streaming past the advancing Greeks as they slogged over mountain roads through rain and snow. The RAF announced that two days ago Greek naval units captured an Italian destroyer already badly dam aged by British bombs, when they occupied Porto Edda, 15 miles south west of Argirocastro. Italy’s fighting retreat pivoted on Klisura Pass, on the road between Premet and Tepelini, where the Greeks had settled down, trying to blast their foe out of dominant po sitions. Front dispatches said that a hur ried Italian retreat continued both north of Porto Edda, along the coast, and west of Premet, deeper inland in the central sector, where counter invading Greeks had driven more than 20 miles through the Italian lines. Heavy fighting was reported in progress west of Premet, at Klisura Pass, about midway between Pre met and Tepelini. Further north east, at the inland extremity of the battle fror.t, the Greek advance aimed at Albasani, on the road to the Albanian capital, Tirana, was said to be rapid.
