Cameron, of MacMillan and Cameron company, said yes terday. His comment on current efforts to establish ,a definite lane was given in a survey conducted to determine the attitude of oil ter minal interests. It was based on the current oil distribution situation in North Car olina. At the present, the Plantation pipe line extends as far north as Greensboro, moving up from the aoiith through Spartanburg, Char lotte and other points. Most of the oil companies are row constructing terminals along the route and, as soon as they go Into operation will seriously af fect oil traffic through Wilmington. The line is serving a 1 1 territory west of it, all along it and several miles eastward. Anything done here to discourage the activities of the present terminals would be to the advantage of the pipe line and detrimental to Wilmington Cameron stated. Should a truck lane be set up around the city, it would add at least five miles to present trans portation routes. This, doubled by two-way traffic, would in effect move advantages of use of the pipe line 10 miles eastward from the present point, he said. This 10-mile belt extending through all of North Carolina and a part of South Carolina would in clude approximately 2000 square miles of the two states’ richest petroleum distribution territory, Cameron added. He pointed out that, through the facts available on one terminal here it would reduce the volume of its traffic by fully 15 to 20 per lent. Cameron advocated retention of Third street, with material im provements to the thoroughfare, (Continued on Page Three, Col. 2) BEVIN PROMISES BRITISH SUPPORT Solidarity With U. S.

North Carolina congressional delegation conferred at the White House for an hour today with John Steelman, assistant to President Truman, on the pending negotia tions involving the shipyard. However, members of the dele gation would commit themselves no further than that. they were "hopeful” an agreement might be reached in regard to the purchase offer. No definite date for next week’s follow-up conference on the subject was announced. In the Tar Heel delegation con ferring with Steelman were Sena tors Clyde R. Hoey and William B. Umstead and Representative J. Bayard C.nrk. Attending the session also was 9‘ dmiral W. W. Smith of the United states Maritime commission. Representative Clark informed Steelman that he hoped funds might be made available by the Government before spring for the dredging of the Cape Fear river channel. He directed Steelman’s attention to the fact that the channel, now lower than before the war, is steadily filling and should be dredged without delay. DANGER OF FIRE CITED IN ROUTE I City Council Schedules Public Hearing On Mat ter Today Robert Strange, chairman of the -Seventh st. committee opposing ■the diverting of truck traffic to that thoroughfare, last night call ed attention to the fire hazard which may result from gasoline trucks should this street become a truck lane Strknge’s warning came on the eve of the city council’s meeting this morning at 10 o’clock, at which time some definite plans may be made for handling truck traffic through the city. He pointed out tha-t the grand jury of Mecklenburg county re cently called to the attention of the I Charlotte city council and mayor the “ever present menace to life and property by oil tankers ’’ Strange said that Judge Don Phillips, in commending the grand jury for their action said, “You have done your duty about the matter. If they fail to do theirs and a great disaster befalls the citizens of Mecklenburg county, then it cannot be blamed upon you and me. They have the authority to remedy this situation. ’ He said that this was mentioned only to show how seriously citi zens of other Nofth Carolina com munities feel about the matter. “Our city has been most fortu nate,” Strange sand, “but can our luck hold indefinitely. Disaster has not struck yet and we are doing all in our power to prevent such a thing. “The sacrifice of Seventh st.— which will increase the fire hazard to an unknown degree’’ must be prevented, he said A protest meeting was held Tuesday night in Hemenway school by residents of the area. More than 200 persons signed a petition asking the city council not to divert Third street truck traffic to Seventh or any other street, but to provide a route for trucks around the city.

Y., Feb. 27 — (TP)—The president of the Buffalo Teachers Federation said tonight that the city’s 98 strike-bound schools “could open by Monday” with official assurance that state proposed pay increases would be effective this year. Raymond J. Ast declared in a prepared radio statement that to day’s report of Governor Dewey’s special education committee 'on the surface appears to be attrac tive.” He asserted that what the 2,400 striking teachers needed was "to feel they have something on whicli to act.” “We must have assurance from the legislature that they will act on legislation to incorporate the committee’s proposal into law for 1947-48,” said Ast. “We must have assurance from the governor that he will sign the b’ll.” The committee recommended a $2,500-34,510 scale in Buffalo Ast’s statement continued: “We must have assurance re garding a bill for permissive lo caltaxation to provide the funds (for the raises) and we must have asurance from our local officials that the funds will be used to meet the demands of the new sala-y schedule, which so far as vve know, may or may not be .man dated.” Today And Tomorrow By WALTER LIPPMANN ‘Not for the first time,” said j "Toe London Economist” a few weeks ago, 'die Foreign Secretary has found that sweeping honest to-goodness statements about Bri tish policy may be misunder stood.” The latest example, his 'impromptu outburst making the !

For while Mr. Truman's state ment during the elections was a i regrettable incident, it was only 1 an incident. It cannot be the rea son why Mr. Bevin has failed to produce an agreed solution. Foi Mr. Truman has not meddled with British policy in India, In Egypt, or in Greece, and yet there, as in Palestine, there are no agreed solutions. The fact is that in the whole region of the Middle East and southern Asia, from the eastern Mediterranean to Malaya, the British authority is insufficient. It is unable to induce, and certainly it is unable to impose solutions for the historic transition from empire to independence. * * * It is clear that the United States will be compelled to as sume new and unexpected re sponsibilities as the ’ British Empire in Asia dissolves.

Feb. 27 —(TP)—The United Nations Se curity Council today set up a three nation sub-committee to investi gate British mine-laying charges against Albania after wrangling two hours on whether Russia had a right to veto such a step. The vqte was 8 to 0 with Russia, Poland and Syria' abstaining. Immediately after the ballot, the council debated composition of the sub-committee for another hour and finally selected Australia, Co lombia, and Poland. The core of this discussion centered on Rus sia’s ins' hence that Poland be given a seat. Soviet delegate Andrei A. Gro Myko was unable to muster any support for his contention that the step of setting up a sub-com mittee was substantive and thus, subject to veto. He finally said he would abstain, but insisted that he held the power to block the move. The sub-committee resolution, submitted by Australia, provides that the group report back to the council not later than March 10. The three-man body is empower ed to gather further information here from the parties to the dis pute and “make a report on the facts of the ca'~ as disclosed by such evidence ” SUPPORT ASKED IN COMING VOTE Red Cross Sanatorium Ex ecutive Committee Ex plains Election The executive committee of the Wilmington Red Cross Sanatorium yesterday called upon all qualified free-holders of the county and city to register for the special election to be held March 25 on the $100, 000 county tuberculosis hospital. The first registration date is Saturday. The books will be open in the,county s 22 precincts at the hemes of registrars, and at the polling places on March 1, 8 and 15. Money for the erection and maintenance of the hospital will be drawn from a sum formerly add ed to the capital reserve fund, it was pointed out. Therefore, the committee said, it will not be nec essary for an additional tax levy. The county commissioners, in calling the special election, are merely asking the citizens of the county to authorize the spending of this money, it was said. However, the commissioners will request the right to levy a tax net to exceed five cents on the $100 valuation to make sure there will be sufficient funds to maintain the institution. The report adds that there now are t»2 county and city residents who need treatment for tubercu (Continued on Page Three, Col. 2) GIRL FOUND NUDE ON HIGHWAY SAYS HER STORY HOAX LONG BEACH, Cal.. Feb. 27 - (U.R) — Pretty Jacqueline May Stang, 17, today admitted her story of having been bound and left nude along the highway by a kid naper was a hoax. The high school student broke down and confessed the story was a fabrication after questioning by juvenile investigators Joseph Ken nick and Mrs. Margie Cate. The officers said the girl gave no reason for her act and will be re-questioned later. She is be ing held for making a false report to police. Miss Stang was found nude on the outskirts of this city by a pass ing motorist. She was bound with strips of her own underwear and her body bore marks of cigarette burns and scratches. When taken to police head quarters, the girl said her as sailant held his hand over her mouth as he tortured her. She said the man followed her from school yesterday, grabbed her and ■pulled her into an alley. An examinatioh disclosed the girl had not been raped and police became suspicious of her story. After long questioning by juven ile officers, she confessed the story was a hoax. j Along The Cape Fear ! DISILLUSIONED—Ask any resi dent of The Port City wnat the Lower Cape Fear region owes its ideal climate to and he will im mediately tell you, "Wny it’s the Gulf Stream.” For years, we have always con tended that that great warm body of water lapping at our very door step was the major factor in the Fort City boasting one of the finest year-round ‘climates in the entire nation. Now lo and behold what should we run across but a report by the U. S. Weather Bureau which really st.ratles us. CONTRARY TO — ‘‘Contrary to the more or less prevailing im pression. the nearness of the Gulf Stream has comparatively little ef fect on the climate of eastern North Carolina because the stream is separted from the coast by 50 miles of compartively cold water and the prevailing wind is from the southwest,” so says Herbert E. Kichline. And Mr. Kichline should know as he is the associate meteorologist and climatic section director for North Carolina, Weather Bureau. Ra’eigh. STILL DEBATABLE — Despite the expert opinion of the weather specilaist there’s many a native of the Port City who will still be willing to bet you that the Gulf Stream'is not 50 miles off the coast. Likewise most residents will go right on contending that the Gull Stream does play a big role in giving Wilmington a mild winter. We’re casting our lot with the majority as the Port City has an ideal climate to attract winter tourists. SAD TALE—While speaking of tourists we would like to recount one tale for which we can offer no proof, but to all intent we be lieve there is good evidence to con tent that it’s correct. Most of you will recall the name of Flagler, the extremely wealthy operator who is credited with de veloping the East Coast of Florida Well, according to the legend, Mr. Flager was, manv years ago, invited to come to Wilmington to look over the possibilities of mak ing the costal area one of the major resort sections of America.

The “Night Witch” has been aground off the inlet since early Wednesday. The buoy tender Bar berry, which has been standing by, was unable to move the schooner because of insufficient power, headquarters said, adding that the •hip is not in danger. Meanwhile, all along the At lantic Coast sailors fought for their lives yesterday against their toughest enemy, the weather as raging waves and winds made 10 other vessels helpless. With a freezing northwest wind whipping through rigging and 25 feet waves washing over decks, seamen pumped with frozen fingers and cursed and prayed through lips blue from cold as they battled to keep their vessels afloat. In a daring rescue operation in the pitching seas, nine men were taken from the fishing schooner, Catherine L. Brown, by the Socony Vacuum tanker, Calusa, 80 miles southeast of Cape May, N. J. The seams in the hull of the fishing vessel split during the night and for five hours her crew fought a losing fight against the water streaming into the hold. The coast guard said it wa< believed she sank. Then the Calusa hove to near by, maneuvered carefully and shot across lifelines. One by one the nine men swung across the gap of water between the two wildly toss ing ships to safety. 10 Others In Trouble From Cape Cod to 'the Florida Keys and as far east as Bermuda, 10 other ships and the men aboard them fought similar battles. The 1,814-ton steamer President War field, 69 men aboard, was taken in tow 75 miles off Cape Hatteras, N. C. She reached Hampton Roads, Va., safely. A former Chesapeake Bay steamer, the War field never was meant for the open ocean. A day out of Balti na o r e,. bound for Marseilles, Prance, she ran into trouble. The Coast Guard cutter Cherokee an swered the Warfield’s call for help. The S. S. Georgie, a 5,695-ton Panamanian freighter, had double trouble 200 miles northeast of Ber muda.

He urged that this sum not be “an irrecoverable expenditure” and that it be stiuplated in all peace arrangements that the money be repaid from any future German net exports “before any other payments to other nations of any kind.” Such repayments thus would come ahead of reparations. The former President lumped in his $475,500,000 food total "col lateral relief imports” of $51,000, 000 for seed and fertilized and $18, 000,000 for petroleum products in addition to $406,000,000 worth of foods for direct consumption. Hoover made the proposal in a formal report to President Truman after investigating relief needs in central Europe. He expanded on it by telling reporters at the White House today that conditions all over Europe are the worst in 50 years. “Pretty grim,” he summed up. He said railroads are still dis organized and that “everybody is cold” in northern and central Europe, where frozen canals and rivers do not permit shipment of coal even by barge.

From Representative Tompkins of Jackson came a bill calling on the Governor to .call a state-wide referendum on the sale of all bev erages containing more than one half of one-per cent alcohol. That quickly was followed by .a bill by Senator Chaffin of Harnett calling for a referendum next No vember 4 on the sale of everything that coiftains drinking-purpose alcohol with the exception of do mestic, light wines. The house delegation from heav ily populated Mecklenburg, which voted dry more than a decade ago, listened to the folks back home and introduced a bill to direct a referendum in that county 90 days after the bill’s enactment. The state-wide bills were the second and third of that character to appear in this assembly, which now has received 32 measures dealing with wine, whisky or beer, most of them local.

The cause was not determined. Navy,- Marine and Army fire fighters and seven fire tugs poured water into the fire, which spread along the submarine side of the naval base, starting at 10:50 a. m (4:20 p. m. Eastern Standard Time). Oil lines under the wharf burst, adding fuel to the fire enveloping the oil - soaked, asphalt - topped structure. A dense smoke pall hung over the Navy yard and spread over near by Hickam Field, where the Army fighter plane Betty Jo was poised for a scheduled take off at 3 p. m. on a flight to New York. The destroyed tender Sierra and supply ship Oberon got up steam and pulled into the channel with out damage while civilian work ers removed more than 5.000 tons of supplies from a threatened ware house. Diogenes Could Locate An Honest “Man” Here Jessie Mae Kegler probably never has heard of Diogenes. And most certainly Diogenes never had an opportunity to know Jessie Mae. However, the two have some thing in common—if a great gulf did separate their main objectives in life. Diogenes' great ambition — so they say—was to find an honest person. Jessie Mae’s life goal is to ful fill Diogene’s ambition. And she did that very thing yesterday afternoon in the sheriff’s ofiice when she walked in with two heavi ly laden cases of clothes. She told the sheriff’s deputies that when she learned that her husband, Cullen Kegler, was be ing held in jail under $1,500 bond on charges of looting automobiles at Hobb’s Tourist Camp on route 17, she returned the suit cases he had given her. Jessie Mae said that she was in South Carolina, but when she got word^of his arrest, site came all the way back to tur.. the suit cases over to the sheriff. The two hand bags contained a number of pieces of women's and men’s clothing and a camera. "No, ” she said. "1’se honest.

POSTPONE ACTION ON POLICE CHIEF City Council Seeking To AK ter Existing Law On Commission Action on the appointment cl Sergeant P. J. Parish as chief of the Wilmington police department was postponed by the civil servic# commission at a meeting last night, but indications pointed to It decision on the matter some tlmd next week. The session in the city hall last night was barred to the public but Dr. David Murchison, who presided at the meeting, said that no action would be taken on thf appointment until Parish’s physical condition could be passed on. Parish is now in James Walker Memorial hospital for examination and treatment but so far no of ficial announcement on the cause of his illness has been forthcom ing. Dr. Murchison last night re peated his previous statement that he was not as yet ready to render his decision on the reasons for Parish’s sickness. At last reports Palish was rest ing comfortably and his condition deemed satisfactory by attache* of the hospital. Members of the commission, other than Dr. Murchison, declined to comment on what took place during the two hour secret session. Meanwhile, rumors continued rife on the subject of changes in the civil service commission act. The feeling has been expressed that no amendments would be made until such time as a dead lock occurred between the cojar mission and the city council ovelr an appointment. Parish was named to fill thf position vacated by Charles H. Casteen at a special meeting of the city council last week and since that time it has been known that the city administration favor ed a change in the act giving thf governing body of the oity thf right to name a man to the post without the selection being sulj» jected to the civil service commit sion for approval. This was upheld yesterday when the minutes of the February 31 council session were released, witft the record showing that suol> changes were desired by thd group. (Continued on Page Three, Col. Vf PRESIDENT HOLDS TOP SECRET MEET Diplomatic And Key Legis lative Leaders Gather At White House WASHINGTON, Feb. 27. —WP)— A top secret conference by Presl dent Truman, his diplomatic ad visers and key legislators stirred speculation today that some diplo matic decision of world import might be in the making. Its importance was underscored by the fact that all the conferee* were pledged to secrecy. Nine congressmen, including the repub lican chiefs of the foreign and ap propriations committees, were con sulted by the President but non* would go beyond an announcement of Chairman Vandenberg (R. Mich.) of the senate foreign rela tions committee: “On the eve of Secretary fol * State) Marshall’s departure for Moscow we had a general disc is sion of the European problem which is involved in the approaching meeting.” The session, for which Marshall and his staff will leave March 5, was arranged tu consider the peace treaty for Germany. But it will be the first meeting of the foreign ministers of the United States, Russia, Britain and France since Britain’s economic plight came to a head in the industrial shutdown forced by the coal shortage, lead ing to some talk that Britain might be forced to reduce her political and military commitments. Any expansion of American com mitments, even though made by executive decision, would require funds to carry out. The chairmen of the senate and house appropri ations committees thus would play an influential role. The appropriations chairmen al so will have much to say about the relief funds the President has re quested for liberated countries and those for the occupied nations contemplated in the war depart ment budget but it appeared that this was not the subject of the conference. One congressional lead er said that the recommendations of Herbert Hoover, who has just completed his study of relief needs, were not discussed.
