Revised Restaurant List
Of Ratings Is Released
A complete grading list of res
taurants, cafes and soda fountains
In New Hanover county showing
relative grades achieved was releas
ed Thursday by City-County Health
Inspectors W. C, Haas and C. J.
Hook. It has been over three years
since a similar compilation has been
published, the last ratings appear
ing in December, 1939.
Inspector Haas suggested persons
who eat out should preserve the
list for future reference. The list
excludes tourist camps and board
ing houses, the ratings of which
will be released at a later date, Mr.
Haas announced. (Grade A tourist j
camps were included in an incom
plete review published in last Sun
day’s Star-News).
“We want It emphasized, air.
Haas declared, “that our business
Is to help the proprietors of eating
places to keep their establishments
In a sanitary condition, to aid in
remodelling plans and to save them
money in the long run—we dislike
to close any place down, and we
don’t unless the owner absolutely
refuses to cooperate. In this respect,
we've been very fortunate, since in
the Wilmington area, proprietors
have shown the proper spirit.”
He said several cafes were now
operating under permits, instead of
being graded.
“This means that these cafes, for
various reasons such as remodelling,
have their grading pending inspec
tion. We issue them a temporary
permit until such time as an inspec
tion is undertaken.”
The eating places are graded on
the basis of 100 points.
"A” restaurants must receive at
least 90 points; ”B” from SO to 90;
and “C” from 70 to 80. All places
who do not score at least 70 per
cent of the time of the Health
Board Inspection are closed down
until they comply with the neces
sary sanitary requirements.
The survey shows 30 white and
five Negro eating places achieving
Without Painful Backache
Many sufferers relieve nagging backache
quickly, once they discover that the real
cause of their trouble may be tired kidneys.
The kidneys are Nature’s chief way of tak
ing the excess acids and waste out of the
blood. They help most people pass about 3
pints a day.
When disorder of kidney function permits
poisonous matter to remain in your blood, it
may cause nagging backache, rheumatic pains,
leg pains, loss of pep and energy, getting up
nights, swelling, puffiness under the eyes,
headaches and dizziness. Frequent or scanty
passages with smarting and# burning some
times shows there is something wrong with
your kidneys or bladder.
Don’t wait! Ask your druggist for Doan’s
Pills, used successfully by millions for over
40 years. They give happy relief and will help
the 15 miles of kidney tubes flush out poison
ous waste from your blood. Get Doan’s Pills.
the coveted “A" rating In the coun
ty; 37 white and eight Negro places
received a “B” grading; 38 white
and 17 Negro establishments were
awarded “C" placards. Several cafes
serving both whites and Negroes
are counted as single, though in
reality, they are separate places,
Inspector Haas explained.

Increase In Prices
Hits Poultry Market

The Office of Price Administra
tion’s move against poultry prices
above the ceiling level has caused
dealers to stop buying chickens
from “raisers”, who are blamed
for the excessive “overcharging
in New Hanover county.
“Apparently there is no poultry
in town,” J. Frank Hackler, OP A
enforcement attorney, said Thurs
It was his staff of investigators
who started more than a week
ago a survey of dealers who were
reportedly charging prices above
the OP A limit for poultry. One
dealer was said to be asking 75
cents a pound for chickens.
A check of New Hanover firms
revealed that dealers were forced
to charge higher than the Office
of Price Administration permits
because they were payin

In crediting 3.2 beer in army canteens
as a prime cause of army good behavior,
the government — through the 0. W. I—
heaps high praise on the Brewing Industry
Foundation as well.
Following a coast-to-coast survey in
army camps, the Office of War Informa
tion calls this "our bestbehaved army.”
In its recent report the comparison is
drawn between the temperate army of
1942 and our troops of ’18 who had
moderate beer denied them —hence were
prey to bootleggers and their ilk,
* * *
In this state the brewing industry is
united to maintain good conditions where
beer is sold. Action is promptly taken, in
cooperation with law enforcement official*,
where laws are violated.
The government report continue*:
“Various state branches of the Brewing
Industry Foundation—the beer nunu.
facturers’ enlightened trade organization
—have taken the initiative. Through
control of distributors, the Foundation
hai been able to clean np unsavory
places. The...system works...”
That’s a tribute from your government!
A mark this industry will work ceaselessly
to deserve. In the interest^ moderation.

camp report will be sent free upon request.

Eastern Carolina
The war record of industry in eastern North Carolina is impressive and
indicates the importance of activities on the home front. Plants, large
and small, are producing sinews of war through the use of electric power.
We are proud to share in this great task. We are proud of our many
employees who are in the armed services of our country. We are proud
of the splendid job being done by those who remain at their posts to do
their part on the home front.
Our resources and personnel are dedicated to the war work of our coun

can save you trouble and Save Your Tires!
SLOW leaks caused by nails, tacks, bad
valves, etc., can exist long before the tire
actually fails on the road. But such tires waste
rubber by running "soft,” and finally produce
"flats” that need not happen. Just replacing lost
air once a week is not enough. A recent check
of over 2000 cars showed that nearly three
quarters of them needed air in one or more tires.
Slow leaks can be spotted, and the trouble
fixed nine times out often before the tire goes flat.
To do this, your Esso Dealer offers this new,
simple, and proved TIRE PRE-CHECK service:
He will accurately hand-gauge each tire before
air is pumped in.
Any excessive loss of pressure in one tire is in
stantly spotted, can then easily and quickly be
repaired—with a patch, a new valve, or whatever
is needed—before the damage goes too far.
He will scientifically check mileage left on each
tire, and switch tires for longest possible mileage.
Finally, tires are accurately filled to wartime
