ACTION ON’PORT Com m i s ? i o n er i Would Match 5 8 0,000 From CAA For New Building __ i Asking $80,000 from the Civil Aeronautics administration, which they would match with $80,000 from the county, the New Han over commissioners yesterday began formal action on the much discussed project of a new ad ministration building at Blue thenthal airport. Airport Manager Henry Boyd, Jr., and local CAA officials, dis closed the action by the com missioners, and pointed out that the improvement to be made with the $160,000 includes work on taxiways, drainage facilities and a cafeteria. The Administration building would be constructed on the northwest side of the field near the Pennington Flying ser vice. Federal action in granting the requested $80,000 must be con sidered by congress, it was point ed out. Earliest possible completion date for the proposed airport construction and improvements would be August of 1948, accord ing to Boyd, who said the mast er plan for the project was drawn by Leslie Boney, Sr., local arch itect. . , , CAA officials, particularly Manager Joseph Norwood of this district, cooperated with the county in working out the plan, which was not discussed or han dled in a regular commissioners’ session. CAA approval of the project was necessary before the Federal government could be re quested to match the county ap propriation.

And in raising the level of life everything depends on two things. There must be dollars from the United States, to pro vide wheat for bread, fertilizer for the long unfertilized fields and coal and raw materials for the factories. And' we must somehow prevent the world eco nomic collapse which would cut off the Italian export (as well as our own). Disaster will come in Italy if the dollars are lack ing or world economic chaos is permitted to occur. The specific needs of Italy are, moreover, fairly moderate in total. Securing wheat alloca tions from the world pool (a vital subject which must be dealt with later at greater length) will actually be harder than making the needed dollars available. In very brief terms, the Italian government has asked Washington for $250 mil lions to cover the deficit for the rest of this year, and for a descending scale of recon struction credits for four years thereafter. These sums to put Italy on her feet amount to $825 millions for 1949, $410 millions for 1950 and $130 millions for 1951. The amounts are considerable but they are also approximate ly one-fortieth of the cost to the American taxpayer of another $20 billions annually for nation al defense. And the incompar able myopia of a Kenneth Wherry — surely an important case for politico-medical histo ry—is needed not to see that tripling the cost of the national defense will be the first result of letting western Europe slip into the Soviet sphere.

Smith issued in structions this morning to crack down on delinquent water bills by ordering that service be dis continued when bills have not been paid by the 15th of the month. In a signed statement, the mayor said: “All water bills are due and payable on or before the 15th of each m^nth and the water department has been notified that when such requirement is not met that service is to be discontinued. In order to have this service cut on, an addition al charge of $1.00 will be made. [The bills are payable at the town office only.” The latter sentence in the statement is interpreted to mean that water department employes who are sent out to discontinue service are not authorized to accept payment.

Bladenboro’s New Theatre Slated To Open Sept. 29_ Mayor Fussell To Operate Wonet; Building Modern In All Respects By LOUIS C. SCOTT Star Correspondent BLADENBORO, Sept. 26—'The new Wonet theatre will hold a formal opening on September 29, it was announced here today by Woodrow G. Fussell, owner of the theatre. The newest of Bladenboro’s theatres is located on Main street and is' one of the most modern and complete theatres in this section of the state. Ground tor me tneatre was broken in December 1946, due to the lack of materials the con struction was delayed several times. Fussell has spared no ex penses to obtain the best of sound and projection equipment and the building is lavisly fur nished. • rive hundred seats of the la test design, washed air condi tioning and modern oil heating are features of the new building. A spacious lounge and complete rest rooms have been installed in the fire proof building, which is complete with automatic fire shutters. Adding to the beauty of the interior is a beautiful silver, red and gold drape on the large stage. Four dressing rooms are located on the ends of the stage to accomodate actors. Fussell said he plans to pre sent stage shows at least once each month and announced that two such shows have already been booked for appearances here. The name, Wonet, was chosen following a contest and is a com bination of parts of Mr. Fussell’s two children’s names, Woody and Nannette.

Short ly after being discharged from the navy Fussell bought the lot on which his new theater stands. YWCA Delegate Describes Trip To War-Tom Europe Miss Virginia Fisher Has Recently Returned From World Conference WHITEVILLE, Sept. 26. — If more Americans could see the ragged, shoeless and emaciated peoples of Europe, there would be an even greater demand that this nation accept a larger share in the reconstruction of those war-ravaged countries, in the opinion of Miss Virginia Fisher who has just returned from a tour abroad. “Conditions are indescrib able,” M;ss Fisher said follow ing her arrival here. “The hope less look on the faces of these victims of war; men, women and children facing winter in bare feet; people living in the shambles of such places as war-torn Warsaw, all these make a picture one would rath er forget.” Miss Fisher, who is employed at Richmond, Va., went to Eu rope as a delegate of the Y.W.C.A. to the World Confer ence of Christian Youth at Oslo, Norway. Since her return, she has been visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Fish er, who reside near Whiteville. Approximately 1,200 dele gates, representing 73 countries, attended the Oslo meeting. Of these, 250 were from the United States. much valuable information about much information about Christian work, but I think the most amazing feature to me was how well the young people of all countries, even those who were formerly enemies, got along together,” Miss Fisher said. “They got to know each other and I wonder if all wars wouldn’t be prevented if enough of these gatherings could be held.” From Oslo, the Columbus county girl went to Goteburg, Sweden where she attended a post-Oslo Y.W.C.A . conference for a week. During her trip, she visited Poland, France, Ita ly, Czechoslovakia and England, in addition to Norway and Sweden. “Everywhere, conditions were bad,” she continued. “The War saw ghetto district, of course, was the most pitiful.

While some children copy pat terns from their animal books, it is quite easy to make your patterns for these animals if you first lay out a sheet of pa per in 1-ineh squares. In the sample patterns shown here, count each square as 1 inch and" note the general pro NOTICE Any firm or person who in any way hold themselves out to th# public to be public accountants, or any firm or person who offers services to the public as one who is qualified to render professional service in the analy sis, verification, and audit of financial records and the interpretation of such service through statements and reports is deemed to be in the prac tice of public accounting as defined by the act regulating the practice of public accounting in North Carolina.

This enables you to make several marks or dots on your squared paper as guides for drawing a rough outline. Then carefully check your drawing with the corresponding one shown here, and make any de sired final changes. The pattern majr now be transferred to the thin wood (not less than 1-8 inch nor more than 1-4 inch in thickness) either by using carbon paper or by cutting out the pattern and tracing its outline on the wood. If you use cigar boxes, these must first be cut apart, and the tops and bottoms should be made smooth by scraping or sandriapering. Cedar, from which most cigar boxes are made, is well adapted to the purpose unle*s heavier toys are wanted. The animal is next shaped either with 'a scroll saw or by whittling. The cutting should be done very carefully, as the out lines make so many different angles with the grain of the wood. It not like straight cut ting angles with the grain of the wood. It is not like straight cutting with the grain, or even straight cross-cutting, and the wood sometimes has a way of splitting off. Sometimes much of this difficulty with short grain can be prevented by not ing the direction of the grain in the wood before the pattern is transferred. I 1 I 1 ! I T _L A base is needed upon which to mount each animal. This should be at least 1 1-4 inches wide, and about as long as the animal. After each animal and its base have been sandpaper ed and balanced, the base is carefully nailed to the animal’s feet with two or more small brads or nails. Be sure that your animal is placed along the center line of your base, or he may topple over. Now you are ready to give the animal his color. Any spots or other decorations should be painted a bright color with com mon oil paints or with water color. Care should be taken that it does not spread into the grain of the wood. When this or the oil paint is dry, an oil stain can be rubbed over both wood and decoration with a soft cloth. Later it should be rubbed down with two or more coats of wax. If only com mon oil paints are used, the spots and other markings should be made after, rather than before, the first coat is applied. The colors for each animal will be left to your judgment. For example, you may paint a bear brown, black or white. (Copyright, 1946, by The Grolier Society Inc., based upon The Book Of Knowledge) (Distributed By United Feature Syndicate, Inc.)

SOUTHPORT SEEKS VETERAN HOSPITAL Site Board To Visit Bruns wick On ctober 9, Har ris Reports SOUTHPORT, Sept. 26 — Al though Southport made no bid or move of any sort, develop ments today appear to indicate that the town has been listed somewhere as a possible loca tion for. the 1000-bed neuropsy chiatric hospital, recently au thorized for North Carolina by the Veterans Administration. J. E. Harris, Chief of the Re quirements Division and Real Estate Service, advised the Star-News representative this morning that the site board would arrive in Southport on or about October 9th. He request ed that all available informa tion be assembled and neld for this board on its arrival. The requirements are for 250 to 300 acres in or near town. This area having various fea tures. Mr. Harris stated that 200,000 gallons of water would be required daily and that it was highly desirable that con nection with city sewerage sys tem be available. Southport will endeavor to present Fort Caswell as a loca tion already having many of the required factors. The property consists of 300 acres, with its own sewerage system, water works, electric current supplied from Southport and many sub stantial buildings and physi cal properties, that will lend themselves admirably to the administration of the hospital. It is thought that with the selec tion of Fort Caswell little more than a main building would be involved in an immediate con struction' program. The climate and scenic sur roundings are ideal with possi bilities for much in the way of healthful physical recreation. The property is owned by the iJavy, which has no present needs for it and apparently lit tle probabilty of future needs. A transfer of the land and the physical properties to the Vet erans Administration would af ford a huge saving in initial costs of the hospital.
