Wilmington Air Park; Dunn Stage Routine Woody Edmondson, internation ally celebrated stunt pilot, will headline the giant air circus scneduied for Sunday, July 6, at the Wilmington Air Park by the James A. Manley post, Veterans of Foreign Wars, local VF\^ offi cials disclosed last night. Curtain-time for the thrill-a-mi nute sky-show will be 4:30 p.m., with the finish coming 120 action filled minutes later. Admission will be 31 a person, tax included, and proceeds will go to the VFW post’s new home building fund. Edmondson, one of the big names in flying circles, will per form his personal brand of aero batics in a powerful, specially built clipped-wing plane, the same eratt that has had thousands oi spectators oil the edges of tneir seats at air shows around the . world. Included in his act are the traditionally “impossible” outside loops, upside down flying and “several surprises.” A cniet test pnui or l^avy lumiu during the war, Edmondson is a member of the old school of fli ers wno learned to fly “by the seat of their pants,” and making planes dj things they were never meant to do has become second nature to him. Charlie Bing. Bdmonason s pro tege and a well-known stunt pilot in his own right, will perform low level aerooatics in a conventional light sports plane. Carl Dunn, Wil mington’s own “clown of the clouds.’’ has polished up his uni que routine, which includes the ia mous “drunken flyer” stunt, hand kerchief pick-up with a wing-tip. and a s.ailed motor demonstra-j tion, in which the plane glides j down dead from 1,000 feet and lands on one wheel in a 10-foot circle. JJUUU Will dASU pui un d ribbon cutting act, in which nis plane will slice through a huge paper ribbon as it floats down from several thousand feet. Another stunt guaranteed to bring the spectators to their feet will be the delayed parachute jump by Russell Sorrell, ex-para trooper. Leaping from 6,000 feet, Sorrell will plummet earthward and wait to puli the ripcord until he can almost see the whites of the audience's eyes. The final event on the program will be a bomb-dropping contest open to all local pilots. Flying i light planes, the contestants will zoom down in single file and bombard a large barrel from 500 feet with small sacks of floor. The bombardier who pinpoints or comes closest to the objective with his flour bombs will receive a ?50 cash award. ( Air Progress, Inc., which oper ates the Wilmington Air Park, will broadcast a running commentary on Ihe show over a public address system. Arrangements for park . ing cars and handling the expect ed large crowds arc now being worked out. Tne park is located on the Wrightsville Beach high way just outside the city limits. | T CAMPERS "WERE BUSY DURING WEEK Snipe Hunting By Youths Prove The ‘Gullible’ Are Still To Be Found By ADAM SMITH ‘Y’ Camp Director The Wilmington YMCA camp has 33 young men attending this summer resort and three council ors.

Chinatown Is Preferable HONG KONG (U.R)—On his f i r s t i visit to China in more than 20 I years, the mayor of New York's Chinatown still prefers the neigh borhood of Mott and Pell streets where he was born and raised. Shavey Lee thinks an occasional trip to the old country would do every Chinese ; American a world of good. His primary reaction, however, is “It's a nice place to visit, but i wouldn’t care to live here.” Prom his loud ties to his two tone shoes, Shavey is as Ameri can as baseball and hot dogs. He • has a New York accent, his slang; is American and his outlook is! peculiar to the millions who have lived in the world's greatest me tropolis and rarely can be happy anywhere else. Shavey was never elected to be mayor of New York’s Chinatown, and can’t even explain how he came to be known as such. But most New Yorkers have heard of Shavey Lee and he knows a good cross section of them, from Mayor O’Dwyer down. Officially, Shavey is an insur ance man. He handles the Chinese agency in New York for the Uni ted States Life Insurance Co. He also owns a rsetaurant called Shavey ibee's. Unofficially he is the spokesman and protagonist of New York's more than 300.000 Chinese, of who he is justly proud as having the ; lowest crime rate of any nation ality group in the city. Shavey is not the only famous member of his family, who origin ally emigrated from Canton more than half a century ago.. His sis ter. Capt. Emily Chek, was t h e first Chinese-Amcrican girl to join the first American officers to en ter Hong Kong after the Japanese surrender. Shavey’s brother. Thomas H. Lee, was the first Chinese-Ameri can to be admitted to the New York Bar. where he is now one of the few- practicing Chinese; attorneys. Shavey arrived here from Shanghai, where he found the job of Mayor K. C. Wu not one to be envied. When he shakes the dust of China shortly, he’ll be quite ready to head back to the side walk of New York. "If you ever want to get hold of me,” he says in his best East Side accent, "don’t bother to phone. Jus! walk down Mott street and ask anyone where is Shavey Lee. They'll tell you.” Australia has more than 60 kinds of toads and frogs. SAMPSON CORONER CANCELS INQUEST Special to the Star-News CLINTON, June 21 — Dr. J. S.
