TWELVE_
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.
Four Prisoners Shot
In Escape Attempt
FRANKLIN, Feb. 6.—W—An un
successful escape attempt at the
prison camp near here resulted in
the shooting of four prisoners yes
terday as two guards shot into
a truck containing 18 men as they
returned the fire of one of the men
in the truck.
Supt. J. R. Overton reported that
Frank Beach Beach, 26, drew a
pistol and fired at the guards.
Beach and three other prisoners
were shot as the guards returned
fire. All the wounded were brought
to Angel hospital here, two in ser
ious condition.
ATTACK UNSUCCESSFUL
JERUSALEM, Feb. 5—(IP)—A po
lice bulletin today said one Arab
sentry was wounded in an ex
change of small arms fire when
armed Jews staged an unsucessful
attack on Safad police headquart

Your Health
On* important question to
ask yourself during Communi
ty Health Week, February 2 to
9, is “Do I start the day out
with a good breakfast?’* Our
most important meal of the
whole day isin many instances
skipped by people bustling off
to work, and by people, women
particularly who conside r
themselves overweight.
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? You’d never
guess, to read a lot of books
these days. But it’s made up
of the Basic Sevan just now a*

SIPLE SENTENCED
TO UFE IN JAIL
53 confessed poisoner of ms 17
year-old daughter, was found
guilty today of first degree murder
charges and sentenced to life im
prisonment.
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,

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.
The resolution follows: _
“Whereas almighty God in his
infinite wisdom has called
our midst our esteemed and be
loved Comrade William F. Haye
to his heavenly home on this the
11th day of January, 1946
“To the members of the James
A. Manley, Post 2573 Veterans of
Foreign Wars of the U. S. and
many friends, his friendliness and
cheerful disposition will always be
an inspiration, and we wish to ex
press our feelings and satisfaction
we have shared in his comrade
ship: therefore be it resolved that
we pay tribute to his memory by
expressing to his family our sin
cere sympathy and be it further
resolved, that a copy of these reso
lutions be sent to his family and
inserted in the minutes of the
meeting of January 30th, 1946. The
posts charter will be draped for a
period of thirty days in his mem
ory.”
THE BOSS KNOWS
BEST; IT’LL PAY TO
LISTEN TO HIM
When Miss Aileen McGaugh
ran picked up her Morning
Star from the front stoop yes
terday morning and saw the
sun shining brightly, she didn’t
want to believe the Star’s
weather forecast of “cloudy
with scattered showers.”
On second thought, however,
she decided to take her rain
coat and umbrella to work with
her, just in case.
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.
