At the beginning] ' the war, when Nazi U-boats, ere on the prowl just off ourj lores, survivors from topedoed j lips were brought to Southport, j id though everybody in town new about them, sometimes even | lowing the names of the ships, j le local press was not permitted | i mention the disasters for se-, irity reasons. The editor at that time be- j oaned the fact that not a word, >uld be printed although for the J rst time a real "scoop" was] ashed in by the waves. Now, several years later, we j ing you an account, released! f the Sixth Naval District pub; information office, of the nkings you witnessed back in le time when Frying Pan Shoals on its title, "Graveyard of the I tlantic," or "Coffin Corner," as . >me seaman designated it. The following is the official re ase concerning this section: The Nazi U-Boats operating 'f Frying Pan Shoals, seaward om Southport, N. C., torpedoed vo tankers in March and April, ( >42, only to find them "rise from , le grave" to sail again. , It was nine minutes past mid- j ight on a pitch black March 21, , >42, when the tanker ESSO , ASHVILLE passed the Frying . an Shoals buoy to port. Then , lere was a noise?-"very much j ke the slamming of a door"?|, lat sent a tremor through the , lip. A few minutes after the lell hit, an explosion raked the lip, flames leaped high and both , ern and bow rose in the air . 5 the ship buckled in center. [ The stern of the vessel was ilvaged and was towed to Balti-1 lore where a new bow was fit- j. id for her. On arrival, some1, lipyard people "went fishing" i her tanks, which had been , irrying oil but were now loaded ; ith deep sea fish. She returned , i the Battle of the Atlantic. j, Less than a month later, April ] 2, 1942, the Panamanian reg-i tered tanker Stanvac Melbourne as torpedoed 15 miles south of rying Pan Inner Buoy. Crew lembers reported three sublarines were observed, blinking >mmunications. One of the subs, i-erturned a lifeboat. ! The STANVAC MELBOURNE as new, built in 1941, and of ),013 tons. Her captain and vo crew members remained board the vessel throughout, tough he ordered the ship , bandoncd. The to-pedo had lown a hole 25 to 15 feet in j rr side. Eighteen hours after that tor-' edoing, a salvage crew arrived] rid the ship was towed to | harleston. She was repaired at ic Charleston Navy Yard and' ?turned to service. A .'{,700 ton Latvian cargo j flip, CILTVA1RA, was torpedoed 'ithout warning off the Carolina oast near Frying Pan Shoals nd two of her crew of 32 killed i a before dawn attack January 0, 1942. Twenty-one survivors ere picked up by the SS OCONY VACCUM American oil inker, and brought to Charleson. She wos bound for Savannah. Last ship torpedoed in Sixth istrict waters was the GEORGE iDE. which was hit to the outheast of Southport and Cape 'ear September 12, 1944. Shc| ook one torpedo almost directly1 stern and immediately after! fiat explosion, a second torpedo] pproached from abaft the star-1 oard quarter and passed very1 lose to the ship. , Ten minutes late a submarine' ras sighted off the starboard uarter at a 300 yard distance, o close maify on the GEORGE iDE could hear the dicsel motors, ficy reported. Two rounds were, Ired by the Armed Guard crew, rom their five inch gun, but ere not believed to have been ffcctive. The sub crash dived, j The GEORGE ADE was taken ito tow and, despite heavy seas, ] e-ifhed Norfolk, to become still j nother "ghost ship"?torpedoed ut saved to sail again. The John D. GUI, carrying 43,000 barrells of crude oil, was unk by a torpedo off Wilming-, on on March 12, 1942. Impact of] he hit turned the tanker com-1 iletely around Pla.r.ei ffdr.i, the niiteifig ship .visible to the refc-| .ants on WrightfivUl* Eoicfc.* EST; A Good 40-PAGES TODAY emoved; Now' t It Happened Churches To Hold Union Services During the month of August | the four Protestant churches In Southport will hold Union Services on Sunday night.

With them were girls from various other counties in the State. The New Hanover girls and those from Brunswick went as a group. Those attending from Bruns-I wick county were: Ann, Rebecca and Catherine McRackan and Betty Corlette, Southport; Hilda Mae Hewett, and Nelva Holden, Supply; Mary Gwynn Chadwicki and Winneford Register, Shal- j lotte. The Home Agent, Miss1 Alene McLamb, and Mrs. Odell i Evans of Leland attended as adult advisors. Mrs. Evans little son, Gene, also attended. The camp was a most successful one. Mr. R. W. Galphin, j Farm Agent frcm New Hanover County, said it was the best camp he had ever attended and he has held many camps. During the week there were three special instructors other than the agents and adult leaders from each county. These instructors were: Miss Virginia Ward, Family Life Coordinator, Wilmington; Mrs. L. B. Brummitt, Handicraft Instructor, Wilmington; and Lt. R. Wilson from the Health Department in Wilmington. There were seventy-five people in camp the entire week. Not any of the girls from this county had ever been to camp before but J.iey were all perfect campers. Catherine and Rebecca McRackan were recognized as being among the best campers. The week was a most helpful and enjoyable one. Swimming, and various types of recreation were enjoyed throughout the week. Game Protector Gets Four Men j F o ur-Wilmington W h it e Men Arrested For Hunting Deer Out Of Season By Protector Bowmcr Led by visions of fresh meat of the venison variety, a. quartet of deer hunters from Wilmington, all said to be employees of the shipyard, found themselves involved in a foot race with County Game Protector H. T. Bowmer on Saturday. The game protector came off victorious in the race and all four men are scheduled to be tried before Magistrate E. H. Ganey at Leland this week. The men arc J. W. Lewis, H. S. Lewis, Bill Lewis, and U. M. Reynolds, all giving Wilmington addresses. They were allegedly hunting in Town Creek township when surprised by the game protector In the resulting foot race one of the men, aaid to have been H. B. Lewis, discarded a late model Remington auto- j matic shot gun. This Bowmer retrieved after arresting them. Another man is also said to have thrown away his gun, the remaining two holding on to their weapons. According to availibie informi(Continued on Page 4) , a iiuiiiuu v? and writers.

In addition to using that] same tested system, the speed of the sales has been stepped up to 400 piles an hour sold to the buying companies.

A result of their fforts was the sale of enough onds to buy and equip a fighter lane. The plane was a Hellcat iightfighter, for use on plane arriers. These planes, while deigned for the especially danerous night fighting, are versa-, le and good around the clock. I By a stroke of luck the plane urchased by the Whiteville 'omen is in the hands of Ensign iilly Bragaw, son of Mrs. Helen iragaw of Southport. His wife, re former Miss Louise Niernsee nd their baby daughter, also ve in Southport. fnr his nio-htfiehter work En all speed but really amounts to1 a much larger increase than that because any tobacco bought by the warehouse) iien themselves or v the independent buyers will not ? be counted against the overall ii speed. Last season tne speed ofj'1 sales was limited to 360 piles \1 per hour and every pile was' counted icgardless of who bought! it. Weight of each pile has | * been reduced to 250 pounds from d the 300 pounds effective at last'o yeai's opening. The weight was * ieduced from 300 to 250 pounds * per pile at mid-season last year,? so the 1945 market open with the g same weight limit used at the j closing of the 1944 season. j Whiteville is known where ever! c I tobacco is sold as one of the * best markets in the border belt. j * All of the Whiteville warehouse-1 v men are experienced tobacco men. \ j In fact if their experience could J be combined it would total more ^ than 300 years in the tobacco ^ business. The oldest and the dean' | of the Whiteville market is M. O. Nelson, Sr. He has been in the tobacco business for 52 years and in the tobacco business in i Whiteville for 32 years.
