Children's Love And Care
More Vital Than Discinline Bv kith millet Neighbors in a Southern city *re horrified when they saw a " 'd whipping a nine-year-old n'",d ]eft in her care by working f;entE, and reported her to the rolice. The maid was cleared of a . ge ot assault and battery when LlU ghiid's parents testified that ^ ^ad put the maid in charge ,their four small children and °\ 'her permission to punish when they needed it. And lev thought the child needed the ^hipping gut the judge of the Juvenile J, caiied the parent? in and c‘nied them that the court I ould take their daughter into cus ,V'dv unless the parents agreed ‘ (o permit anyone but them Llves to whip the child. The case has created quite a ■tii in the city, with some folks dj„g with the juvenile judge’s verdict, and others siding with tue parents. It -teems to me ';hat in saying -1 am not going tc sanction put ting a child under the supervision Pnd° authority ol a maid with the privilege of whipping a child” the j'dge of the juvenile court is showing concern over the least important aspect of the situation. THE REAL ISSUE Isn't it far more important that j maid is responsible for a child’s : fare. feeding, and upbringing— i than that the maid is permitted 1 10 whip the child? Isn't the real harm in the fact ] that a child must turn to a maid ^ foi all it? wants, its reassurances, j its comfort when hurt, instead of In its own mother? : In a situation that is basically unfair to a child the matter of an ctcasicnal whipping seems minor. 1 Isn’t the question of who gives . a child love and care more impor- i t;nt than who spanks it?

OPA BEER PRICES TO TAKE EFFECT Maximum OPA prices for beer and ale sold at retail either in con tainers or on draught in New Han over county are scheduled to take effect the latter part of next week after registration of all county beer dealers at the rationing board Thursday, it was announced yes terday by the Wilmington War Price and Rationing Board. Doors will be open at the board office Thursday from 9 o'clock to 12 noon and from 2 to 4 o’clock for registration of all New Han over beer dealers. The OPA order divides all re tail sellers into three price group ings, namely Group IB, Group 2B and Group 3B. Classification of retail outlets will depend upon prices charged during the base period of April 4-10, 1943, and also filed with the local board. Premium beer in 12-ounce con tainers will sell for 25 cents each in Group IB, 20 cents each in Group 2B and 17 cents each in Group 3B. Non-premium beer will sell tor 20 cents in Group IB, 15 cents in Group 2B, and 12 cents in Group 3B. The Raleigh district office es tablished a maximum of 17 cents for premium and 12 cents for non premium beer sold in 12-ounce containers in the lower - price Group 3B. Quart-sized premium beer, or the 32-c-unce container, will sell for 40 cents in the lowest price Group 3B, 45 cents in Group 2B and 50 cents in Group IB. Non premium beer, in quarts, will re tail at 35 cents in 3B, 40 cents in 2B, and 45 cents in the top classi fication, IB. On-draught beer, retail outlets in Group IB, will be allowed a maximum of seven cents for six ounce containers, and one cent per ounce plus two cents for contain ers of eight ounces or more. Re tail outlets in Groups 2B and 3B will be allowed to charge six cents for six-ounce containers, and one cent per ounce plus one cent for containers of eight ounces or more. during the base period in April of last year and the nearest com petitor did not establish a ceiling with the ration board, the seller will be placed in the lower priced Group 3B. However, he has the privilege of requesting reclassifi cation from the Raleigh district office by stating what he thinks ' the price ceiling and correct clas sification should be. The group to vhich the retailer will belong depends on his legal ceiling prices for the beverages during the base period. If the . legal prices for various brands and types of beverage subject to the order vary so that the ceiling prices on some brands or types seem to place the seller in one particular group and ceiling prices on others seem to classify him into a different one, he will be ' classified into the particular group representative of the prices at which the greater number of sales were made. War Price and , Rationing officials stated. Purpose of the registration is to secure from all beer dealers the correct information as to 1 their group which will determine their ceiling price for each brand 1 of beer, premium and non-pre mium. Cards showing group num , bers will be issued. Group posters, price posters and other information will be distrib uted at that time. All local beer retailers are requested to regis ter on that date as failure to do so will constitute violations of OPA regulations, if sales are made after that day. Every dealer is required to post his ceiling prices for beer and ale either by supplying the customers with menus showing the brand name, quantity and ceiling price of each kind and type of bottled beer and ale sold by it and the quantity and ceiling price of all beers and ales sold on draught or by posting a sign giving this information. He must also post a card given by the ration board showing the group number of his establishment. The prices fixed for each group of retailers include all state taxes, sales or otherwise, and all federjJ taxes, with the exception of the federal excise tax on cabarets. Sellers who are required to pay the cabaret tax are permitted to add the same to the prices if the tax is separately stated and col lected. The ceiling prices will prevail throughout the state, and the Ra leigh district office will include 54 eastern counties, of which New Hanover is one. -V ENEMY VESSEL SUNK LONDON, July 7— I* -British wanships and planes smashed several groups of enemy vessels off the Dutch coast Wednesday, sinking an armed trawler, setting afire two other boats and damag ing at least ten other escort craft with torpedoes, rockets and can non fire.

DIXON WITH THE AEF IN ITALY, June 25—(Delayed)— (IP) —It •was a thousand yards up a creek and the litter bearers had to wade all* the way, but the pals of Pfc. George Kulph of Detroit, Mich., had sent word for them to hurry. A big mortar shell had land ed next to George and when his side-kicks gathered around in sadness there was only si lence from George’s foxhole. So the litter bearers came, hopelessly loaded George on the stretcher and trudged the long splashing way back down the creek to the aid station. At this point George, who had merely been knocked un conscious by the concussion, came to, coughed got off the litter, said “Thanks for the ride, boys” and started back up to his outfit. What the medics said you could print on asbestos papdr. The heat of the drive caught one German “motorized” outfit so off balance that the doughboys captured their equipment as well as most of the men in the unit. Although they can’t use the equipment right now during the middle of the fighting, tike soldiers are taking it along just the same. It’s bicycles — hundreds of bicycles—and they adorn the jeeps, trucks, tanks and com mand cars of the outfit, in ad- • dition to those being wheeled j along by the infantrymen. The prisoner kept pointing at the house which still was in enemy hands and trying to say something. Finally Maj. Gen. Fred Walker, 36th divi sion commander, got the idea. The German was saying that some of his comrades were in the house and if the Americans would let him go he’d talk them into surrender ing. To everybody’s consterna tion the general nodded ap proval and the prisoner scur red toward the house which was surrounded on three sides Engineers Cancel Beach Convention RALEIGH, July 7 — GP>— The North Carolina Society of Engi neers, with a membership of near ly 750, announced today plans for its summer convention August 4 at Wrightsville Beach had beeij cancelled in answer to the govern ment's request that unnecessary travel be avoided.

Burchard of Asheville is society president. -V SURGICAL AID A recent surgical instrument for examining wounds in which metal may be concealed consists of a probe whch rings a bell as it ap proaches the hidden obstacle. St. John’s Tavern 114 Orange St. Dial 2-8085 DELICIOUS FOOD Chicken In The Rough — Fridty by doughboys. Other officers looked at each othen with raised eyebrows but the gen eral just grinned. In a mom ent the prisoner returned lead ing 12 other Germans. Then the general explained. He was pretty sure the pri soner was scared enough to be sincere and besides, it didn’t make any difference anyway. When he okayed the request he’d just received word that company blank had moved in on the fourth side of the house. With that detail in mind the general explained he figured the prisoner wasn’t going any where no matter how insin cere he might have been. Pfc. Edward J. Peckham of Fall River, Mass., is a man who goes apout his work in a business-like manner. He dis likes to be interrupted. At the moment his business consisted of putting his hand to a machine gun and mowing down the waves of Germans who were staging something of a counterattack. Finally one of the Jerries managed to get close enough to heave a grenade at Ed ward. It lit beside him, upset his machine gun and momen tarily stunned him. But he was more irritated than stunned, and guessing what the Germans would do next, he unhoistered his -45 and waited. Presently the German sent to reconnotier stuck his head over the ridge. Edward trigger ed the .45 just one time. After all there was only one Ger man. That business taken care of. he set up the machine gun again and went back to the matter of mowing down Ger mans.
