Ralph Mitchell, commanding general of the Ma rine air base at Cherry Point, ex plained to members of the Tar Heel Camp and Hospital council of the American Red Cross busi ness-luncheon meeting yesterday afternoon at the American Legion home. Substituting as main speaker for Maj. Gen. Mitchell, who was called to Washington, D. C. to be deco rated for military services, Major Malloy discussed with members, the planned beautification of the naval hospital grounds at Cherry Point, which was endorsed by the council and its executive board at the last meeting. “The beautification project of this council is of much interest to us at the Point," continued Mal loy. “When Maj. Gen. Miitchell ar rived at Cherry Point last July he contacted the State and they put on a fine program of beautifi cation around the' post. Because Cherry Point is “aviation” and most of our enlisted strength is specialized, we have no available men to spare on a project of this type. The Navy does not allot any funds for beautifying the grounds.” “We have just as many patients in the naval hospital now as we did during the war,” Malloy said, and in closing his talk said, “to have the hospital grounds colorful with flowers and' shrubs would build a moral value that is indescribable.” Mrs. J. T. Little, chairman of the council, presided at the meet ing and told the members that the pnlinril wnnlri rpmain artivp Miss Daisy Mashall, Red Cross representative at Camp Lejeune, asked the council for 15 Projective books, which is a device attached to the bed of the patient whereby he is able to read books, without the use of his hands. Miss Marshall also requested new records and magazine sub scriptions. W. M. Boice, representing Co lumbus county donated fifty dol lars towards a Projective book and Mrs. G. A. Ives, Duplin county, gave the balance necessary for a book. Onslow and Brunswick coun ties also donated one book each and Mrs. R. B. Page, local chairman of the council, also donated one book. Major Malloy, on behalf of the base, donated three books. A motion was made and carried to send five dollars each month to the Red Cross at the naval hos pital for new record's. L. F. Foy, Field Director of American Red Cross at Cherry Point, told the members that there was no Day rooms on the field where the men could go to write letters or read. A motion was made and carried that the council’s furniture at Camp Davis be moved to Cherry Point to be used in the future day rooms there. The banquet tables were beauti fully arranged with large flower arrangements of red gladioli and white chrysanthemums placed In silver bowls. On each side of the arrangements were single white tapers in silver candleholders. Mrs. Page and the American Le gion auxiliary were in charge of the luncheon and seating of the guests.

In other major labor develop ments across the country, the steel strike forced closing of 52 coal mines employing 14,000 in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ala bama and the CIO chopped its wage increase demands for the nation’s 650,000 shipbuilders from 35 to 20 cents an hopr. o The mine closings boosted the number of strike idle in the coun try to more than 1,635,050. Demands for ?. 25 per cent aver age wage boost and improved working conditions—issues which railroad management and labor have been discussing for several months—led to the nationwide rail road strike threat. a. r. wnnney, president of the Trainmen Brotherhood, said bal loting would be completed in about three weeks and that ‘‘a strike might come within three days” following unless "definite settle ment” was reached. Alvanley Johnston, grand chie engineer of the Brotherhood ot Locomotive Engineers, said his or fanization’s committee would meet eb. 1 and added there was a “distinct possibility” a strike vote would be taken. The White House said the ad ministration still had po immediate plans for further action in the steel strike of 750,000, which has brought the threat of imminent shutdowns of manufacturing and construction work in Philadelphia. Louisville, San Diego, New York and other cities. The trade magazine Steel said it was "highly improbable” U. S. Steel would boost its wage increase offer above 15 cents an hour ‘‘unless an unusual steel price develspment comes out of Wash ington.” FAIRLESS ASKS TRUMAN FOR WAGE MEETING NEW YORK, Jan. 23—OB—Ben jamin F.
