Swain will not appear as a can-j iidate for county commissioner j sn the ballots printed for the i second primary election to be I seld Saturday. The state board ruled that ,Mr. ( Swain failed to file with the Brunswick county board within the time prescribed by law, and 1 i* 1 ViirrVi mon in I I Lnai orny uic uucc mgu iwv<> , the first race, and Sam Joe Frink, i who filed within the prescribed I period, were eligible to make the second race. This means that the Democratic voters have their choice of three candidates for commissioner from the four men running. These are Stephen Mintz, Otho Bellamy, L. t~. Tripp and Sam Joe Frink. There is more interest in the second primary race between. So-' licitor David Sinclair and Clifton L. Moore for .the nomination as j solicitor for the eighth judicial j district than there is in the race 11 for county commissioner. Moore was high man in the first -prima ry, and received the high vote j In Brunswick. However, with Al- 1 ton Lennon, the third candidate, out of the race, followers of Sinclair hope to be able to pick up I ' A1- /?.-A?oomn tlio i I enough strengui w Moore lead. The prospect is for a light vote throughout the county. Dies Suddenly In This County ?i? Jack B.

Our President has requested that all rubber be collected before July 1 and every farmer as well as every citizen is asked to search diligently and take all old automobile tires, .innertubes, rubber shoe soles, rubber heels, rubber mats, rubber hose, old hot water bottles, rubber raincoats or any article that contains rubber regardless of how small the amount might be, for it will be the small contributions of millions of patriotic Americans that will make this rubber drive the success needed to supply our Army and Navy and Civilian Defense with the necessary rubber that must spell victory, r pil nmunity 942 PUBLIS1 Collect 35,200During First V R. D. White, Of Shallotte, Drive For Collection C The Gov< A record of more than two pounds of scrap rubber for each of the 17,125 persons in Brunswick county was compiled during the first week of the drive as the public cooperated onehundred percent with the filling station operators and officials in charge of the program. K. D. White, of Shallotte, was named county chairman, and on Saturday afternoon was able to report to state headquarters that 35,200-lbs of scrap rubber had been collected and paid for by gasoline dealers throughout Brunswick. The good work has continued during the early part of this week, and it is reasonable to expect the final total to go above the 50,000-lb mark. Various sources of rubber have been found, but one of the most nusual is the channel Two Importan In Ratioi * Proposes Bounty On Enemy Fish I Annoyed by the presence of too many garfish In the waters of Orton pond, Jim Ferger, the plantation manager, told a friend this week that he planned to pay sportsmen a bounty of $2.00 on each garfish they caught. The friend, with some knowledge of garfish and of the 1,300 acre pond, told Jim that he might be letting himself in for a lot of trouble at $2.00 per head. There are probably thousands of garfish In the pond, and if anyone went seriously about the business of catching them, it would take a mint of money to pay the bounty. Shallotte Man Passes Sunday R. L. Bland, Of Shallotte, Is Laid To Rest Monday Afternoon At The Pearce Cemetery R. L. Bland, 72-year-old resi dent of Shallotte, died Sunday | night at Dosher Memorial Hospital, victim of a stroke which he suffered several days prior to his death. The deceased was a native of this county, and was a prominent farmer in his home community. His wife preceeded him to the grave several years ago. One brother, Joe Bland, of Ash; and four sisters, Mrs. Amanda Parker, Mrs. George Williamson and Miss Nettie Bland, of Shallotte, and Mrs. Dan Smith, of Ash, also survive. Funeral services were conducted at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon at Pearce cemetery at Shallotte with Rev. W. G. Lowe in charge. Active pallbearers were J. S. Parker, E. V. Gore, Ernest Parker, George Smith, Morton Parker and A. H. Parker. Auto Stamps On Sale For Owners Possession Of Federal Automobile Stamp Will Be Required Before Registration For New Gasoline Card Collector of Internal Revenue Charles H. Robertson is again calling attention to the fact that auto use stamps in the denomina-j tion of $5.00 were placed on sale in all postoffices and offices of Collectors of Internal Revenue on Wednesday, June 10. The stamps will be serially numbered, will be gummed on the face, and will have provision on the back for entry of the make, model, serial number and State license number of the vehicle. It is important that these stamps be ' purchased promptly, as possession of the auto use stamp with the serial number printed on it will be one of the necessary means of identifying the coupon book with the vehicle for which it was purchased in the securing of gasoline in the gasoline-rationed areas. Every owner of a motor vehicle which is used upon the highways should call at his local postoffice or at the office of the Internal (Continued On Page Four| Most Of The News All The Time ====== ===== $1.50 PER YEAS District Agent Visits In County With Home Agt. Together They Made Investigation Of Possibilities For Producing Food And Preserving For Future Use SEE GOOD PROSPECT FOR HOME CANNING Not Only Are Gardens Plentiful, But There Appears To Be Sentiment Favoring Conservation Mapping out a continuance of the gardening work with plans for year-round production of foodstuffs instead of just during the spring and summer. Miss Genevivie Eakes, home demonstration agent, had the assistance of Miss Veina Stanton, district agent, from State College, last week. Miss Eakes and Miss Stanton attended the Agricultural Workers Council at Bolivia and the home demonstration club meeting at Leland. The balance of the time was spent in conference with leaders among the farm women in several of the communities. Miss Eakes says that the spring and summer months have brought a splendid production of vegetables and fruits, much of which has already been canned. With a continuance of the good production weather throughout the summer and fall months, the coming of winter will see all records broken with the amount of fruits and vegetables processed by the farm women of the county. It is beir.g pu.nceu out that the matter of conserving foodstuffs is not stopping short of rural residents. The number of town and village residents who are engaged ,0T KED EVERY WEDNESDAY Lbs Rubber i Veek Of Drive Is County Chairman For )f Scrap Rubber For jrnment of the river near the town of Shallotte. It seems that the kids have made it a habit of long standing to get a head start and roll old tires into the Shallotte river to see who could make the biggest splash. Now 1 those same youngsters are just as enthusiastic about digging the tires out of the mud at ] low tide, to fishing for them at othef times with alligator hooks. These tactics doubtless contributed to the fact that the Coast Road Service Stataion led all other places in the county in Saturday's report with 9,000 lbs. At Bolivia Elmore's Garage was the central collecting place, and 8,500-lbs were collected there. Elbert Kirby's store at Supply was the cen- ! ter for that community, and 4,900-lbs were reported. t Changes ning Program Change Made In Value Of Stamp No. 5 in War Ration Book, But Provision Made To Have It Last Longer Period NEW GASOLINE DATES GIVEN' Extend Time For Present Gasoline Ration Card To July 22; Registration Begins July 9th Two announcements of interest have been received during the first two days of this week by the Brunswick County Rationing Board. The first is that stamp No. 5 in War Ration Book No. 1 is good for the purchase of two pounds c? sugar between June 28th and July 25th; and that stamp No. 6 in War Ration Book No. 1 is good for the purchase of two pounds of sugar between July 26th and August 22nd. It will be noted that while the purchase value of each of these two stamps has been doubled, the period for which they must serve aiso nas oeen aouoiea, uius giving them the same comparative value as was assigned the first four stamps. The other announcement has to do with gasoline. Motorists will have to use their present gasoline ration card until July 22 instead of July 15, as had been previously announced. The period for registration also has been moved up to July 9-10-11 instead of holding it on July 1-2-3 as had previously been announced. A representative of the Brunswick County Ration Board wishes to remind persons desiring sugar for home canning that there is no deadline, so far as is now known, for making application for this sugar. However, when application is made, the information should be provided to show the names and number of persons in the family, together with the total number of quarts of fruit canned last year, and an estimate of this year's canning of fruits. Says Urgent Need For Stenographers Examinations Being Held Daily At Customhouse In Wilmington To Secure Girls To Fill Vacancies The Civil Service Commission is urgently in need of stenographers and typists to fill positions in Washington, D. C. To meet this need, arrangements have been made to give examinations for these positions daily in Room 225, Customhouse, Wilmington. These examinations will begin at 9:30 A. M. and 2:30 P. M. All applicants must be 18 years of age, and must bring their own typewriters to the examination. Because of the national emergency, qualification requirements have been lowered. The basic salary for typists and stenographers is $1440 per annum. All persons who may be able to qualify should make arrangements to take the examination as soon as possible. This is an excellent opportunity for beginning a career with the Federal Government. Appointments will be made effective almost immediately to those who pass the examination. in saving foodstuffs this year has increased ever previous years. Summer and fall gardens ift Brunswick will be plentiful and; in many cases, the efforts will extend right on through the winter, as far as possible. With this county having one of the longest growing seasons of any section of the state, and with very mild winters, when winter comes, something or other in the way of foodstuffs can be in process of making the whole year-round in the gardens and on the farms. Honor Ancestor Of Bolivia Lady U. S. Destroyer Will Be Named For Captain Ottoway Burns, Famous Captain Of War Of 1812 Mrs. George Cannon has received a letter from her uncle, Alex Canady, of Denmark, S. C., telling of his invitation to the laying of the keel of the torpedo destroyer, "Otway Burns," on May 9th at the Savannah ship yard. Mr. Canady will also make the trial trip on the destroyer. Captain Otway Burns, for whom the boat is named, was a privateer of the War of 1812 and was in command of the "Snapdragon" which worried the British during the course of the war. Capt.
