Everywhere it is regarded a wonderful golden harvest, piling .up wealth "" """ll "c -fo mo the war. Not only that, we will soon see the beginning of preparations and plans to look after these thousands. iThe friendly co-operative spirit of Brunswick county people has always .been recognized. It may mean everything now to extend that spirit to its fullest toward people who come seeking to develop the things to which we have always paid scant attention. Do The Same Thing Here Several years ago the State of Louisiana put several boats into service, surveying for new shrimping grounds all (along the Louisiana coast. As one result of that survey more than ten of the largest shrimp trawlers in North Carolina left Southport and have since been engaged in fishing in the new waters off Louisiana. They have been there eight years and will stay there. \ The coast of Brunswick on the lower North Carolina coast is, apparently, the only commercial fishing grounds for shrimp in North Carolina. All of the fishing is done one to three miles off shore and the season is noticably short because of the fact that the shrimp move fuifher offshore at times. Just how far they go and in what grounds they congregate is a matter of conjecture, but it is believed that a survey would reveal them as existing in great numbers at points 5 to 25 miles offshore. Fishermen at Southport and all along the coast of Brunswick to Little River, S. C., are getting bigger and better {15 I'll ciO muiv. Very few people realize that Florida * has another great source of wealth and * attraction. That is sport fishing. Kip -Farrington, Wall Street broker and * sportsman, is our authority for that Bstatement that sport fishing carries infto the state of Florida more money . than the entire citrus crop brings. And everybody benefits; hotels, ^hoarding houses, moving picture shows, - food places, supply houses, all take in t leir share and it circulates. Not only Kip Farrington but other ^nationally known sport fishing authorities have repeatedly said that the Brunswick county, North Carolina, coast has great and undeveloped resources in the. way of sport fishing. . Southport has access to Frying Pan "Shoals where dolphin, amber jack bar' racuda and other medium size fish -abound. It also has access to the waters - where marlin and sailfish abound for 1 many months each year, if not for the v. hole year round. Not just Southport, but the whole of the Brunswick coast offers a won derful attraction to the sportsman. They were beginning to come when the war stalled. When the war ends they will come in great numbers. The coast of Brunswick is the halfway point between New York and Florida?halfway in distance and climate hut all the way in the sport fishing it can provide. Before the war stalled spoilsmen . from Maryland, Washington, D. C., K. Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and other states were just beJ!g nning to find Southport and the Brunswick coast. Only a month before Pearl Harbor a large group of spoils writers gathered here and were planning to do some plugging for the development of spoil fishing. Pearl Harbor knocked out their plans for the time being, but this section of Carolina has always been kept in mind. Unknown to Brunswick county people, another powerful development agency has been* quitely looking over things. New Yorkers, who usually know what is what regarding matters with money making and spoil providing potentialities, have been setting themselves up as a post-war planning board. Spoil fishing will draw thousands to the lower North Carolina coast after * ; THE SI boats, craft capable of going a great distance offshore and staying there Until they load. Will these boats also have to go to Louisiana because of the fact that the State of North Carolina has never done anything to develop commercial fishing on the lower coast? A request is now being made of the North Carolina Department of Conserv- = ation and Development to assign a good ! sized boat or boats at Southport to !i ! maJ<e a survey of the offshore waters ^ j along the coast of Brunswick and locate ri new shrimp trawling grounds. This is one thing that the State Planning ^ Board could and should undertake. j, b We Must Do Something Here " Few Southport or Brunswick county li people realize the opportunities we ? have to gain additional desirable residents. This applies to both town and country as inquiries regarding farms and places for stock raising are numIS1 erous. For homes for sale, houses and n apartments for rent or lease and for e hotel accommodations the inquiries o] come in every day. h( These inquiries are not entirely pas- s sed up as an effort is made to supply all requested information. * To give some indication of the nature d< of the inquiries, two of several letters n 1 1 rlnvino' fhp thst naye ocen icucivcu uuim6 w*<w ^ past week are being used here. Ob- ia viously, we cannot publish the names ?' of the writers. The letters are simply SJ printed verbatum, with the names of the writers omitted: v I would like to know about the hotels or boarding house facilities ir at Southport. I have in mind your. w locality for a vacation for a person ^ who needs a rest and change from a. overwork. a I should like to know something w about Southport and Smith Island. The signature to the above was that u of a prominent Asheville physician. The letter, as the one below, is on file and may be seen by any one inter- e< ested. * f i /! ti I am a retired business man of independent financial means and jointly with my wife I would like to locate permanently in a small tt sea-coast town around Southport. Therefore, I shall be very much te obliged if you could give me some H " - tt idea in tni5 matter ao( a*^mgv ^ rentals o? a modest small furnished q apartment or house of two or three r? rooms with kitchenette and bath for year round living in a white- w peopled district, also information h! about climate, rainfall, humidity 1-0 and means of transportation. ^ When this war ends inquiries like in tlie above are going to require a lot di of attention or we will be passing up 01 a great deal that would accure to the g? benefit of Brunswick county towns, 30 communities and people. In fact, a lot be of attention is required now and few sa are sharing the burden which falls to ps the local chamber of commerce secre- 01 tary. % * r p, T/J/hi/J Pv^/f/// o r ^ i i/nyu i ? tn st; The giant carrier-borne air blow at jjj the Tokyo area by the American Navy air arm should be evaluated in larger terms than the damage it undoubtedly inflicted on ground targets. It appears to be, without much question, one of the tactical steps in the strategy of an impending amphibious operation, probably the biggest so far in the Pacific. To make possible such a landing, whether it be on the China Coast, Formosa, Japan itself, or some near island steppingstones, the American forces would first have to secure two objectives: First, unquestioned dominance over Japanese land-based air power in th enear vicinity of the planned operation. That dominance has long ago been gained in the Philippine and other island theaters remote from Japan's inner defenses but not around the home islands. Second, the4 Japanese fleet must be forced to fight and be knocked out as an effective force, or it must be determined that this fleet A: has already lost its power of defense, e; Thus the American Navy strikes at 6 J targets which the Japanese must de- jj: fend and at the same time offers targets 6: to lure the enemy's planes and ships to come out where they can be got at and |destroyed. Similar measures were 8: taken by the Allied air forces in Eu- s! rope before the Normandy landings. Bombers found the targets which the |; Luftwaffe would defend in strength and kkept at them until Germany's = fighter strength was whittled down to the point at which Allied planes were supreme in the air over the beaches.
