FAMOUS PILOT WILL
FEATURE AIR SHOW
Event To Be Staged At.
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. |

The Wilmington YMCA camp

activities that challenge the boys
to use skills that they acquired in
school, on the playgrounds, and at
the “Y”.

wasting their time.
The first half of the softball
league is completed and Buddy
Davis, captain of the Sparrow’s
team, has his team in the lead
by winning six again.t no loses.
Cabin entertainment for the
youngsters has been very interest
ing and amusing.
A hot dog roast was given last
night at the campfire roast.
All of the YMCA members went
to Crystal Beach, Friday after
noon. for a good time.
Snipe hunting w^as enjoyed
Thursday night and the hunting
proved very successful. “We just
missed a couple of snipes as they
run under our bags,” said a couple
of the boys, even though they
didn’t know wh'at a snipe was.
The YMCA track meet was won
by the Iroquois wdth 33 1-2 points.
The team is composed of members
from cabins thre and four.
Pete Dannenbaum was the high
point individual winner with 13 1-2
points. Al Gumb followed second
with 12 points, and Bobby Cumber
tallied third place with nine and
one half points.

Seventeen breeds were repre
sented, including Alsatians, Great
Danes and Dalmatians. The
charge for transporting the ani
mals aboard the converted Halifax

Shavey Lee Likes China Somewhat
BatN.Y. 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.
