Now that the ban on private
flying along the Fast coast has
been lifted, student activity has
reached a new high locally.
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

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.

‘MARCH OF DIMES’
SURPASSES QUOTA
The New Hanover county
“March of Dimes” closed yester
day after having exceeded its quo
ta of $8,269 by approximately $1,.
000, it was announced by i). 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.

Commended For Work
On Saipan Airbase
Two Wilmington soldiers, Pfc.
John E. Silva, of 814 North Fifth
street, and Cpl. Russell C. Wil
liams, Jr., of 218 Princess street,
were among the 36 North Carolin
ians in a 21st Bomber Command
B-29 unit which the Associated
Press reported yesterday had been
specially commended by Brig.
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

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.”

apply to your draft board for deferment.
