WITNESSES ADMIT ‘BAD’ INVESTING GREENVILLE, Feb. Attorneys for Roderick Davenport drew from a number of witnesses ,.a„ W time that they were violating the •tate’s usury laws. Counsel for Davenport and five eo-defendants on trial on cha g of conspiracy to defraud and fr by false pretense cited a state ci statute which limits interest ra es on loans to six percent a year. Most of the witnesses called by the state today admitted on cross examination that they were per suaded” to invest money with the "big apple” after being promised a five percent interest per week return on their loans. Davenport allegedly headed the "big apple. Earlier' the state attempted to show through a series of news paper articles read in court that investors actually were led to de posit money in the business. The articles, allegedly published in the Goldsboro News Argus early in August, 1944, were titled "SBI probes small loan schemes in Eastern North Carolina,” and “loan firm has three outlets in Goldsboro.” The first article, read by A. B. Careere, advertising manager ol the Goldsboro paper, attempted to show that then Governor J. M. Broughton had said the operation of the "big apple” loan brokeage was not a violation of the criminal laws. The second article contained a section which quoted SBI director Thomas Creekmore as saying Davenport had paid the required $750 loan brokeage license fee for each of the counties in which he operated.

Of all meals, what a foolish decision to skip the meal which comas at the time when you have already gone without food longer than any other time dur ing the 24 hours. Need Breakfast Even more serious is the children who are sent off to school without their breakfast —children who need food not only to keep tneir bodies in re pair, as do adults, but also to keep growing. Even before birth through out life, diet is so very im portant. “We ara what we eat” has been a popular state ment and there’s much truth in it. These bodies $>f ours are made out of food from the vary beginning. Rounded Diet Any breakdown in that sup ply of food is a breakdown for the person. What is a fully rounded diet?

Judge Leonard D. Verdier ruled that Siple, the unfrocked pastor of the Southlawn Church of God, had committed first degree murder. Siple previously had pleaded guilty to a temporary murder warrant in the poison-slaying of his daughter. Judge Verdier told the pastor he would be sent to Southern Michi gan prison. Siple took the sentence with the same lack of emotion he has displayed throughout the lengthy investigation into the tur bulent background of his church relations. “You have violated the laws of both man and God and the ten commandments which you told other people from your pulpit to obey,” the circuit judge said. Siple had planned' to throw him self on the mercy of the court but he did not speak at the sentenc ing. The 53-year-old minister said in confessing the slaying last week that he had done it as an “act of mercy” because his daugh ter was “mentally incompetent.” He said he wanted to save his daughter from being sent to an asylum. Pointing his finger at Siple and shaking it vigorously, Judge Ver dier demanded “who are you to judge that your daughter would spend the rest of her life in an institution.” always. Lop-sided diets ad vised by faddists may do harm, and are not practical any way you look at them. Basic Seven Most of us know the “Basic Seven”—we know them in the ory, even if we haven’t practic ed eating them. The Basic Seven includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, eggs, milk, meat or meat substitutes, and whole wheat breads and cereals. There are two kinds of hun ger—hollow hunger and hidden hunger. When our stomachs are empty, it’s hollow hunger. But a more serious kind of hunger is hidden hunger, which results from not enough of the proper kind of food. Scurvy Threat Malnutrition is another word for hidden hunger. Some of the most serious symptoms of mal nutrition such as pellagra, scurvy, etc., are rarely ever seen in our country these day6, although they are quite com mon in the war-torn countries. But there are many degrees of malnutrition. Some of the lea ser degrees of malnutrition afe common in our midst—fatigue, lack of mental alertness, poor appetites, overweight, lowered resistance to disease—these are just a few, i-'-1 HAYES RESOLUTION PASSED BY V. F. W. WILMINGTON POST The Resolutions committee of Post 2573, Veterans of Foreign Wars, yesterday adopted a resol - tion on the death of William F. Hayes.

It turned out well that she did so and saved her a lot of em barrassment because (1) the weather prediction came true and (2) the man who made the prediction, Paul Hess, is her boss.
