HANCOCK Star Staff Writer An oil pipeline network, which would put fuel oil and gasoline into the backyard of every farmer in eastern North Carolina, was outlined to the Star last night by It. E. Mayo, president of the Eastern Pipe Lines company of Maury. Mayo said that while it would be tometime before actual work got underway on the project because of scarcity of the pipes to be used, his company already had petitioned the State Utilities com mission for a certificate of neces sity. The main terminal, Mayo said, would be Wilmington, with the line running as far west as Roxboro in Person county. It would lead out of Wilmington by way of Elizabeth town, running through Wilson, then to Nashville and Henderson. A second line, he said, would lead out of Morehead City, through New Bern, Kinston, Raleigh and Dur ham. To Serve Farmers “Our primary interest,” he said, “is to serve the tobacco farmer from the eastern part of the state through to the Piedmont section of North Carolina. However, our in terest will include all other users of petroleum products.” The company, he said, is an out growth of the FIorence-Mayo-Nu way Tobacco curing system. Mayo pointed out that the tobac co farmers of the state would use approximately 75,000,000 gallons of fuel oil during the three curing months of the season. Because of the developmenf\and use of oil curing furnaces, whicH\he said his company had pioneered its-, it had been decided to make fuel oil, with which to operate the fur naces, easily available to every farmer in the tobacco belt.

EISENHOWER DENOUNCES WAR Professional Soldier Calls It Evil Outbreak Of Human Errors NEW YORK, May 27—(J1)—Gen. Dwight D.

He urged, in an address pre pared for the National Board of Fire Underwriters, that the na tion and the world treat war, as they do fire, with methods to pre vent its outbreak. “For too many generations, too much of the world has taken it for granted that war is a normal part of human life, whose penalties can be lessened, not by rooting out the cause of war, but only by main taining so large and powerful a war machine that defeat would be impossible—the equivalent, say, of maintaining fire departments on every street corner while building cities of tinder and tissue,” Eisen hower said. organized Liiort “As I see it, we need an organiz ed effort, embracing every phase of society, whose goal will be the development of industrial, com munity and national attitudes that will remove-war from the category of the inevitable into its proper position as an evil subject to pre vention or at least control.” Eisenhower declared that “in the effort toward international safe guards, we shall not be alone. Na tions now are seeking, at the high est level, to develop cooperation and arbitration as a barrier against war. There is no people that does not hope for their success in this attempt.” And So To Bed An automobile parked acroaa the railroad tracks as a shelter and a railroad tie as a pillow might make u pretty comfor table sleeping place.
