Chester O. Ensign, manager of
the Civilian Production adminis
tration for the North Carolina dis
trict, Greensboro, was in Wilming

might be made, but he indicated
that Wilmington, in desperate need
of new business structures, would
get a ’“square deal.”
Ensign’s Wilmington survey is
one of many he will make through
out the State to determine which
cities should get priority on CPA
building permits. He will leave the
