JAYCEES ALL SET
FOR PAPER DRIVE In an effort to better its record of approximately 98,000 pounds, the Wilmington Junior Chamber of Commerce will launch another scrap paper drive Sunday in the hope of passing a collection goal of 100.000 founds of waste paper. Sunday’s drive will cover all of the city, the suburbs, both beaches, including Harbor Island, and other parts of New Hanover county. Residents are urged to have their scrap paper placed outside by 10:30 a. m. Campaign Chairman Cy Johnson last night asked people to have corragated paper, maga zines and ordinary paper, such as newspapers, tied in separate bundles. In order that the largest amount of scrap paper possible be col lected, a special effort is being made this time for people to salv age odd pieces of scrap paper, such as enveloes, letter sheets and so on, which can be packed in boxes. J'hnson again reminded cititzens ^at' waste paper is still on the l*ft of the country’s most critical shortages, and is vitally needed for the war effort. Proceeds orf the scrap paper canvass will go the Jaycee s Ex ternal Activities fund, which in cludes serviceman rehabilitation. Collection headquarter’s for the drive will be the Nprth-Smith Coal Co., at Sixth and Campbell jtreets. Twenty-one trucks will be used to cover the collection area.

Dixon) BOURNEMOUTH, Eng.—®— Here is a soldiers’ Utopia where GI’s live in $10 a day luxury no tels for 20 cents a night. They play and swim on seven miles of sandy English Channel beach, stay out all night if they wisk and sleep as late as they like. Waffle breakfastc are served un til 11 a.m. Military Police are scarce and the only rules are: “Re member, you are a visitor—and a gentleman.” Since V-E Day this famous Eng lish Riviera resort city of 116,000 on the Southeast coast has become a playground for American troops waiting for transportation back to the United States and a leave cen ter for those still on duty in Eng land, France and Germany. Many of the guests are liberated prisoners of war who are regain ing weight and are getting a chance to play on Army time before re turning home. With the cooperation and back ing of the Army, the American Red Cross has taken over 12 of the largest, most luxurious hotels on the high, picturesque cliffs over looking the sea. They are run as private clubs for all ranks but the only thing military about the place is the uniforms. It is the closest thing to civilian life that it is possible 1o find in the Army. That is what the soldiers like about it, says Pvt. James Gil mour, Philadelphia, Pa., Airborne infantryman who landed in Nor mandy on D-Day. “It is a beautiful place and a good spot to come to forget about the Army,” adds Sgt. Sylvester Scrocco, Youngstown, Ohio, who was woundec at Aachen. Sgt. Jack Massena, North Tarrytown, N. Y„ winner of the Silver Star and wounded five times, readily agrees. When asked what he likes about the resort, Pvt. Leonard Szczesny, Natrona Heights, Pa., replies quickly, “the beach and the girls.” Bournemouth is supposed to have more beautiful women per capita than any other city in England There are no non-fraternization rules but there is a lot of com- : petition between the American and Canadian soldiers as Bournemouth has long been a big Royal Canadian Air .Force base. Besides swimming, the entertain ment includes yacting, tennis, golf, free movies, horseback riding, steamer excursions to the Isle of Wight and visits to many historic places including Hurst Castle built by Henry VII. Many swank res taurants and dance palaces beckon to the soldier trade. Alcoholic drinks are rationed strictly although a few cocktail lounges have special permission to stay open until midnight. The only soft drinks are served at Red Cross hotels. GI’s fare better than officers. The high Carlton Hotel—where the Prince of Wales had a room—with a $10 a day view is one of those open to enlisted men fcr a shilling a night while the officers live in the less pretentious Ambassador a block away at four shillings a night. Overnight valet service is pro vided in all the hotels and free mending is done while you wait. Many London stage shows are tried out first on audiences at Bournemouth. Vacationing soldiers are invited at special rates. "Our biggest problem is keep ing a supply of sunburn oil for the boys who insist on spending all day on the beach,” said Ruth Dennis, Los Angeles, Calif., di rector of a GI Red Cross Club. Bournemouth is only a bus ride from the great port of Southamp ton from which troops are embarK ing for the States. Many of them, especially liberated prisoners, are living here until called to catch their boat. Among the freed prisoners re laxing here last week were Lt. John C. (Red) Morgan, Amarillo, Tex., First Eighth Air Firce bomber pi lot to win the Congressional Medal Df honor; Lt. John B. Hynes, West Roxbury, Mass., a Flying For ress navigator; Lt. William H. Top ping, Clifton Forge, Va., a Libe rator bombardier; and Lt. Kenneth 0. Vaughn, North Braddock, pa. Morgan was shot down over Ber lin. The others spent six to 15 nonths in German prison camps. State School Budget Okehed, Raises Given £ _* RALEIGH, July 5 —UP)— The State Board of Education today formally approved a budget call ing for the expenditure of an es timated $40,987,552 on its nine months school program in the next fiscal year, and granted pay in creases to teachers, principals, su perintendents, and other school workers. The nine-months school budget compares with an estimated $37, 825,450.74 spent during the past fiscal year, and includes a fund totalling $350,000 to be used to aid schools in converting to 12 jyades instead of 11. Broken down, the budget allo cates $1,093,348 for general control, including salaries to superinten dents, clerical assistants, office ex penses, and other items; $34,796,5'’! for instructional service, including the old war bonus to teachers; $2, 196,280 for plant operation; $15,C 3 for fixed charges, such as reim bursements to school children for injuries; $2,883, 820 for auxiliary agencies, including school bus transportation, mechanics, librar ies, and other items; and $2,540 for miscellaneous expenses. A major item in the budget con cerns the allocation of $34,572,884 for the payment of school teach ers salaries, including the old war bonus. The total compares with an estimated $31,791,592 spent last year. The salary increases for teachers and superintendents were contain ed in a recommendation from the board’s finance committee, head ed by Dr. Julien Miller of Char lotte, and for the most part follow ed by legislative action. -V Use Of Wooden Barges Discontinued By Oil Men WASHINGTON, July 5.—(IP)— Use of wooden barges in the trans portation of fuel oil between Texas refineries and Norfolk, Va., has been discontinued. The emergency barges were us ed to carry oil from Texas ports over the gulf intercoastal canal to Panama City, Fla. From there the oil was transported by rail to Nor folk. The Office of Defense Trans portation said tankers now are available on a temporary basis, making use of the wooden barges unnecessary at this time. Large Crowd Attends Servicemen’s Dinner LUMBERTON, July 5. — The Lumberton Servicemen’s Club was host Sunday at a dinner for visit ing servicemen, with Chairman and Mrs. W. M. Best, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Barrington, Mrs. John Rankin and Miss Ethel Pittman serving and welcoming the men. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Barrington gave a birthday cake in honor of their son, Lt.

McDonald, Mrs. Don McGill and Miss Ethel Pittman. -V Bty WAR BONDS AND STAMPS STATE REVENUE SHOWS INCREASE By BLOYS BRITT RALEIGH, July 5.—(A>)—'With $116,871,645.51 in revenue reported collected in the general fund and highway divisions in the last fis cal year, which ended June 30, State employees were practically assured today of the payment of a $10 monthly contingent bonus authorized by the 1945 legislature. Final tabulations of highway and general fund revenues, principal sources of State income, showed an increase during the fiscal yeai of $5,619,690, or 5.05 per cent, over the 1943-’44 year, and more than double collections of the last pre war year, 1940-’41. An additional $55,014 was esti mated to have been collected bj State Treasurer Charles M. John son, who said his collections on non-tax revenues was not com plete. Still other revenue was col lected by the State Agriculture De partment, which maintains its own budgt. The new bonus, to be paid in full or in multiples of $2.50 or more monthly, was made contingent by the legislature on whether suffi cient surplus funds were available from 1944-’45 revenues to pay the bonus, either in full or in part, tc ail State workers, including school teachers, who receive less than $3,600 a year. The old war bonus paid in the last biennium to State employees was incorporated by the legislature into the employe’s sal ary, hnd the new bonus added. While budget officials were un able to set the exact amount, if any, of funds left from last year’s unprecedented revenue collections, it was generally believed that an stimated $4,500,000 needed to take care of full payment of the bonus in the coming year would be avail able. -V Obituaries ISAAC S.
