DAY ROOM AT CAMP DAVIS
Shown above is a completed day room at Camp Davis. The government gives the buildings to the
camp, but all the furnishings are dependent upon voluntary contributions from private individuals or
civic and charitable organizations. The project of furnishing the room is being sponsored by the Camp
and Hospital Council committee of the New Hanover chapter of the American Red Cross. All gifts for
that purpose will be greatly appreciated, but it is the sincere wish of the committee that several or
ganizations in the city undertake the completion of a room or rooms as a very needed and worthy war
service. The idea is to give boys, undergoing intensive training far from their families, a little spot
of home. A place with a reading lamp, a comfortable chair, somewhere to write' Otters or talk. to
friends. This has proved in other oamps a welcome haven, when a boy has no place to go but back
to bed.” _____

The Wilmington Post of the Am
erican Legion has launched a cam
paign to collect old phonograph
records for the armed forces.
George Sloan, of the Legion Na

to all those having such records
to turn them in to places designat
ed or telephone numbers listed

tional Legion headquarters said
in the first drive approximately
11,000,000 discs were collected and
later distributed to the armed

leave them at Coastal Service Sta
tion, 301 North Third street; Cau
sey’s Auto Service, 1202 Market
