It has been unof ficially announced that those in charge of locating and build ing the proposed structure de sire a locality somewhere along the Central Carolina coast. As soon as that announcement leaked out Legionnaires of the local Post went to work and at a meeting last Friday they adopted the resolution which follows: RESOLUTION A location in Eastern North Car olina, for the building of a Veterans Hospital, being: most desirable, and the project being now contemplated by the authorities; And, Carteret County possessing all the necessary natural advantages sought: the climate and recreational facilities being unsurpassed; Be it Now Resolved by Carteret Post No. 99, of the American Leg ion, in regular meeting assembled, this June 18, 1937: 1.

He does not ex pect the citizens to put up any cash for the erection of a building, he does not expect or ask the town or the county to give him free taxes, free water or free power. All that he wishes is a location where he would be assured of free rent for a few months during which time he would make plans to build a factory of his own here. Goldsboro has gone after the plant, but the manufactur er prefers to locate in this coastal town if possible. Among other things he promises is employment to a min imum of 150 operators at the very begining with the assurance that he will pay a high scale of wages. If there is a building hereabouts which (Continued on page eight ) HE ALMOST SAW HISTORIC FORT Mr. Haasis of Alabama, who is spending his vacation here with his family, is disappointed in Fort Mac on Park conditions. He attempted to drive to Fort Macon over the road now being improver by the State Highway crews and found that he was violating Section 12 of the North Carolina laws and was advised by workmen to try the route along the surf on the ocean beach. He then at tempted to get on the beach, but was informed by a gate keeper that only government employees and Salter Path residents had the privilege. Then Mr. Haasis and party returned to Beaufort and chartered a launch to take him to the fort on Wednes day morning. Upon their arrive! they could find no caretaker to un lock the gates, after waiting until nearly noon. "Things like that put a bad taste in the mouths of out of state tourists like myself, who have driven hundreds of miles to see your Fort Macon State Park," said Mr. Haasis, and he is returning to Ala bama today, perhaps still wondering what the ancient fortress which he almost saw after several attempts looks like.

If Bob Connell knew these cutlines were being written he would say, "Tell them about the many ad ded attractions we have booked for the Fourth of July holiday, and quit raving about me."

Ill imSHIIIGTON "1 WHAT IS TAKING V IT (r w V U;ijTDSTATBSHl While the spotlight of public at tention throws into bold relief many outstanding national issues that dir ectly relate to, but do not solve the problems of rural America, there is no dearth of official interest in the farm problem. However, it is gener ally realized that stabilized indus trial conditions must precede sound programs for agriculture. In other words, stabilization of the purchasing power of our people. In this connection, there is much evidence that the farmers of North Carolina are endeavoring to improve their own status. They ask that the government eliminate only the eviU (Continued on page eight) NEW STREET WILL RELIEVE TRAFFIC Four dolphin, one amberjack, two sea bass, one trigger fish, two bonito and one small snap per was taken Sunday by Red Tucker and party of Raleigh, fishing with Capt.

Here they landed the first amberjack and the sea-bass Shortly afterwards they sail ed on to Light Ship Buoy and landed the four dolphin and oth er species. Capt.

New Commander of Legion Post Here Actual Construction of Front Extension to Begin July 8 Front Street Extension, extending from the Hugh Hill residence to Com munity Center, a distance of approx imately one and a half miles will be paved, it was definitely announced this week by T. E. Kelly, Carteret WPA official. A WPA project, the plans call for a 60-foot rightaway of which 18 feet will be paved with a shell base, surface treated asphalt, and the total cost is estimated at ap proximately $15,000. Actual construction will begin with the WPA payroll period begin ning July 8, and at the beginning it is expected that approximately 70 persons will be given employment. A period of six months is allowed for its completion but Mr. Kelly believes thta the job can be finished within four months. It will when com pleted give Beaufort a watefront drive almost three miles in length, beginning at Duncan Green acros3 ( Continued on page eight) Lucky Frank Feinburg of Farm- ville, Va., who won $150,000 in The Irish Sweepstakes a few months ago was a visitor on Atlantic Beach and a guest at Atlantic Beach Hotel this week. He liked the famous resort mighty well and judging from a con versation a News man had with him this resort is the tops as compared to other resorts in North Carolina. What Mr. Feinberg likes best though is a horse named "Midday Sun" which won the 150 grand for him. The winnings have not yet been ac tually paid over, but that is only a matter of form. Even since he arriv ed on Atlantic Beach he has been ad vised by his folks in Farmville that the draft has arrived there and it would be necessary for him to re turn sometime within the next 30 days and identify himself by Notary affadavits. Then with the forms all filled out they will be returned to Ireland and a short time later his money will be coming in. Mr. Fein berg figures the U. S. Government will take a $65,000 cut in taxes, but he makes no secret of the fact that he had much rather Uncle Sam get that slice in preference of himself changing his residence to Ireland. Mr. Feinberg was accompanied to (Conitnued on page five) James Stewart of the Business As- sociation who is serving as Wir.

Enlisted Men May Soon Be Retired After 20 Years In Service BARDEN AND REYNOLDS CO-AUTHORS OF BILL William Hatsell Beaufort has no finer citizen than William Hatsell and Carteret Post Legionnaires conferred a well earn ed honor on him last Friday night when he was elected their comman der for the coming year. For the three previous years he was adju tant of Carteret Post No. 99. Dur ing the World War he was Machinist Mate lc aboard a sub-chaser. The editor of this newspaper could write many complimentary things about William Hatsell, but as he happens to be our linotype operator and in cidentally the 'main sprnig' of The Beaufort News, the editor knows the cut-lines would never be published. OVERSTREET STICKS According to announcement made by Congressman Graham A. Barden in a telegram to Ay cock Brown of The Beaufort News late Wednesday, the en listed men of the U. S. Coast Guard Service may soon be giv en the same retirement break now enjoyed by the enlisted men of the U. S. Navy. The.tel egraphic announcement was followed by a dispatch from Washington which appeared in the daily newspapers today. Congressman Barden's tele gram follows : "Senator Reynolds and my self together with Davison Gus Larson and others appeared be fore the Senate sub-committee of commerce in interest of Coast Guard bills introduced by Sen ator Reynolds and myself stop At conclusion of hearing Chair man Bilboa announced that bill would receive unanimous favor able report from sub-committee to whole committee.

Jess Pagels who carried Red Tucker and a group of friends out there af ter dolphin and amberjack. He es estimated the current was running three miles an hour, which does not sound so very fast on land where the pedestrian averages that while walk ing, but when it is blue water of the ocean 20 miles or more off shore it is some speed. It was impossible or im practical at any rate, to try and tie up to the buoy for still fishing. Nevertheless, Capt. Jess and his par ty returned to Beaufort with four dolphin, one amberjack, one small snapper, one trigger fish, two bonito and two sea-bass. (Continued on page eight) PASSED EXAMS Ed Potter, son of Mr. and Mr. E. H. Potter of Beaufort, hai pasted the entrance examinations for the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapoli, according to a messaf e received here this morninf. He was given his ea pointment to the Academy by Cong ressman Graham A. Barden. Several days ago Onslow County offered Hugh Overstreet, farm agent, an increase of $250 per year more than he was making in Carteret if he would accept the job they had for him. Over- street tentatively accepted the new job. In the mean time an editorial appeared in The Beaufort News outlining in detail how he had devel oped farming here i n this coastal county, and the possible results if he should ac cept his new of fer in Onslow. That started prominent farmers to thinking and one day this week they or their representatives swarmed in on Carteret Commissioners and de manded that Oversteet's salary be in creased so that he would remain in the county. This the Commissioners finally agreed to do after one or two members put up the plea of hard times and hard to get money, to pay county employees. Recreation, band music, and oth er entertaniment will be offered to help make the week "a real vacation as well as an educational event." Goodman pointed oat; TIDE TABLE Information as t the tide at Beaufort is given in this column. The figures are approx imately correct and based on tables furnished by the U. S. Geodetic Survey.
