PRAISES LEWIS Wason Says John L. Lewis Is “Honest” And “Loyal American” CHICAGO, May 22. —OJ.fi)—Rob ert R. Wason, president of the National Association of Manufac turers. an organization representing ■ Big Business,” Wednesday prais ed John L. Lewis for his record as a labor leader, his honesty, and his lovalty to America. He predicted at a press confer ence that Lewis, president of the AFL United Mine Workers which is scheduled to stop work in the nations mines next Saturday, would get what he wants for his mine workers. However, he denounced the ad ministration for a “sell-out” to la bor and said management is now ••helpless.” Discussing the CIO organizational drive in Southern states, he said he preferred Lewis’ record as a labor leader to that of CIO chieftain Philip Murray. He praised the AFL. which also is making a drive in the South, but predicted the CIO would succeed in its drive to unionize Southern industry because “the power of government” would be behind it. Asked why he preferred Lewis to Murray, he replied: • When Lewis made a bargain, he kept it. It has always worked in the interest of the people he rep resents. He has improved the miners’ conditions, not for political purposes, but for welfare purposes. The loyalties of John L. Lewis are to America, first and foremost.” Asked if he wasn’t implying that Murray does not keep bargains, doesn't work for the people he rep resents, and isn’t loyal to America, Wason replied: "I didn’t say that.” If l’ou Wish and Exper ienced and Conscientious Business Man With the Best Interests of Wilmington and .North Carolina at Heart to Represent You in the Next General Assembly in the House of Representatives Vote For J.

Just about everybody has them, and they wear them constantly. The boys do remember to take them off in the class rooms, but the girls wear them all the time. Although the uniform way to wear them is straight on the head with the bill to the front, many girls look mighty cute with them cocked on the side of their heads. Lon Ussery says there are still quite a few on hand, but he feels sure that those which aren't sold at the end of this year can be quickly disposed of during the football season next year. New Wildcat Editors “With the end of the year here at hand, the editors for the school year of ’46-'47 have been selected to run the Wildcat, our high school paper. They are as follows: To Jeanine Stanley falls the job of editor-in-chief while Alan Lanier will take over the position of business manager, Frank Bradley will act as his assistant. Albert Beal will assume the posi tion of news editor with Addison Smith as his able assistant. The job of circulation manager falls to Betty Lou O’Master with Betty Britt having the responsibility of advertising. George Fick will take over the camera as photographic editor, and Marilyn Goodman will provide all of the amusing stories in the position of feature editor. Her more than capable assistant will be Betty Walters. Keeping the Wildcat “in the know” as far as the happenings of other school papers throughout the state are concerned will be Margie Batson as exchange editor with Winifred Harriss as her assistant. Cover ing the sports will be Bryan Mul linix as editor and Elwood Perry as assistant. From the people who have been selected to serve, the Wildcat should have a very in teresting and profitable circula tion in the next school year to come. But who will forget the editors who served so willingly this past year? Wasn’t Martin Fields a perfect feature editor? He always knew just what the stu dents wanted in the way of funny happenings in our school lives. And Jack Baldwin really did a swell job as editor-in-chief. The task of covering the sports stories of the year was up to Billy Lee, and he did a job worth recogni tion. But none of the editors could have done so well without the help of the reporters, Lib Hellen, Betty Payne, Mary Anne Brown, Pat Kelley, Anne Williams, Sue Nor ton, Lynn Kirk, Donald Edwards, Don Newland, Barbara Stern berger, Gretter Duffy, and Jean Ingram. One of the hardest jobs on the paper was done to perfec tion by Oliver Watkins who took the part of business manager. Yes, editors of the school year to come, you have quite a task to live up to the goal set by the staff of the Wildcat of the year that has just passed. We’ll be watching your progress, so do your best! J. R. Dobson Resigns The members of the Junior High band, are losing someone who means much to them in the field of music and friendship. J. R.
