At Peiffer Field, the newly dedi cated operations base of Carolina Skyways, the number of student trainees has increased steadily, due greatly to the war-awakened air-consciousness of the public. Several students have qualified for solo flights and the honor of being the first student trained by that organization to solo from Peif fer Field goes to Edward Robbins, who made the lonely trip January 10. Others who have soloed since the opening of the field are Coy Etheridge, Jr., who soloed Janu ary 14, and B. J. Almond, who fol lowed closely on January 17. Almond has apparently been bit ten hard by the flying bug as he and A. A. Almond recently "purch ased an Aeronca Chief, a two place cabin monoplane. Warren Pennington and Burke Rehder are keeping their airport on the Carolina Beach highway humming. Warren and Burke have a Taylorcraft trainer, a Piper Cub trainer. Burke reports he will revive the old Wilmington Aero club, which has been inactive since the beginning of the war. T7 More ELAS Members Sentenced To Death ATHENS.

M. Darden, chairman of the county committee affiliated with the Na tional Foundation for Infantile Pa ralysis. Owing to bad weather, which interfered with drive acti vities, the national campaign was extended by an order this week to February 15, but the local drive met the original deadline with a day to spare. Mr. Darden pointed out that the end of the formal drive will not prevent acceptance of contribu tions from people who wish to do nate additional sums. The funds collected will be split between lo cal anti-poliomyletis work and the reserve fund of the national or ganization, whose resources were applied to such good effect in the summer siege at Hickory. He also took occasion to express the county committee’s apprecia tion of the help rendered by local volunteer groups, notably t h e King’s Daughters, the American Legion auxiliary, the Girl Scouts the Boy Scouts, the Teen Age club Hie Delta sorority and the Parent Teachers association. --V Wllminatnrt -o - iy Commended For Work On Saipan Airbase Two Wilmington soldiers, Pfc. John E. Silva, of 814 North Fifth street, and Cpl. Russell C.

Gen. H. S. Hansell for their work in constructing a Saipan airbase recently. With the aviation engineers com pletely absorbed in the preparation of the airstrip itself, personnel from clerical, medical, truck-driv ing, chemical warfare and admin istrative ground echelons were call ed-on to do the auxiliary construc tion. Unfamiliar as they were to car pentry, masonry and shovel-work, they pitched in and prepared the site, keeping pace with the airstrip work done by the professionals. Within 20 weeks a fully organized airbase was sending Superfortress-! es on regularly scheduled raids on j Japan. I —-v BUY WAR BONDS AND STAMPS! Settlement Of OPA Suits Against Grocers Planned RALEIGH, Feb. 3. — Disclosing that negotiations are under way for the settlement of triple damage suits against four Wilmington food sellers, Disrict OPA Directflr The odore S. Johnson today announced that action taken against them was originated "under my instructions and was not taken at the specific request of the local price panel” of New Hanover county. Replying to various inquiries from Wilmington citizens in regard to the suits recently brought in the Eastern North Carolina Fed eral court district against four Wil mington and four Goldsboro food dealers, Mr. Johnson issued the following statement: ‘‘The survey and price check out of which these cases originated was part of a nation-wide enforce ment campaign which was inaug urated by the national and region al offices of OPA. ■ Certain cities in each OPA district were chosen for the purposes of the campaign, Wilmington and Goldsboro being two uut of five such cities. "While the merchants in Wil mington, against Whom the court actions were taken, had on pre vious occasions been in conference with the price panel of the New Hanover county War Prce and Ra tioning board, the action taken against them was originated by the Raleigh district officer under my instructions and was not taken at the specific request of the local price panel. ‘‘While it was hoped that the ac tion we would take would support and strengthen the position of the local price panels, it should be said that these suits were not brought at the instance of the local panel. It is my understanding that the defendants in these suits will not object to the restraining orders being made permanent and that negotiations are already under way for the settlement of the tri ple damage suits.” Optical Shop Will Be Opened Here Tomorrow Hugh E.
