Today's report meeting was poorly

their reports., until tomorrow and at

day's small figures. Tomorrow, the
final day of "the campaign, is expect

The Aeroplanes came back strong

The chairman of the committee for
New Hanover county is exceedingly
anxious to make the full quota of ap
pointments at. as early a date as pos
sible. All patriotic business hou&es
who have not as yet applied for ap
pointment as sales agencies are urg
ed to communicate with Chairman
Little at once.
The government Has alloted to New
Hanover county for sale during the
year of 1$18, $704,814 of Thrift
Stamps and War Savings Certificate
Stamps, no small undertaking, every
one will agree. Th question is square
ly up to the citizens as to what they
will do with this tremendous respon
sibility. The local committee will
need the aid and loyal support-of ev
ery one, for it only means the small
task of selling stamps equal in
amount to $20 for every man, woman
and child, both white and black in
In the language Of Governor Bick
ett: "To the timid this task is a ter

pens. When the first subscriptions
were taken and the paltry sum of
$185,000 raised, Mr. Taylor stated that
the subscriptions were being made , as
though the subscribers were to be
called upon for that amount of money.
This probably gave all present the
clearest conception of the proposition
they had had and absultely no timer
ity was shown in bolstering the mark
up to where it properly belonged.
In outlining the proposition, Mr.
Taylor stated that things were mov
ing more rapidly in Wilmington just
now than in many a day, and that
the matter in hand had crystalized
more rapidly tahn anyone had any
idea it could a few short days ago.
He told of the visits of Eastern and
Northern promoters to the city and of
the conferences that had been held
with them and he offered his proposi
tion with the endorsement of the most
substantial men in the city.
It was explained that the formation
of the trust company was for no other
purpose than to show concrete evi
dence of the faith that Wilmington
has in the men that will be elected to
the directorate of the proposed, com
pany and is officers. All funds paid
out will go out under the double check
system and misappropriation of
money will be almost &a impossi
bility. It is only through this man
ner, the speaker said, that loss can
possibly come to those who subscribe
and as Wilmington men will be in
control no fear is felt along taht line,
the speaker continued.
The capital stock of the operating
company will be $2,500,000 and the
capital stock of the trust company
$1,000,000, half of this latter amount
to be subscribed by Wilmington in
terests and the remaining half mil
lion to come from outside the city.
The Other Interests guarantee against
rise in price of material and laoor
which assures a profit far in excess
of the amount invested. The money
paid out by the operating company
for. materials and labor is double
checked by the underwriting corpor
ation and this assures good faith all
around. The operating corporation is
to take half, the stock of the under
writing corporation and the operating
corporation is to give to the under
writers half of its stock. It might be
well to state that the operating com
pany does not actually get half of the
stock of the trust company as the
balnce of power is left in Wilming
ton through a division of the stock.
Charter has already been applied for
and the corporation is to be strictly
a North Carolina affair and one of
the biggest men in the State will be
president of the trust company in
event he is acceptable to Wilmington.
If this man is not wanted for the of
fice, a Wilmihgtonian can be elected,
as a majority of the stock will be held
Operations are to be started in the
immediate future in the event the
project goes through and there is no
reason to imagine that it will not.
The minimum payroll will be $200,000
per month and it will result la the
filling of the city's empty houses and
will not only arrest the flow of labor
from this city and section but will
start an influx as skilled mechanics
will be necessary and the wages paid
There is absolutely no question as
to the integrity of the men of the op
erating corporation, the speaker said,
as they have business interests in va
rious sections of the country and are
known to he men of ability and integ
rity. The proposition is not of the "wild
cat" scheme variety and wilLbe of a
permanent nature continuing to grow
with the passing of time. Perhaps
one of the best explanations was of
fered by Mr. G. Herbert Smith, who
stated that the city was offered a
$800,000 profit investment with no
chance cjLlosing for merely signing a
note fctisW.OOO and putting up $2i,
000 in 8?sv
Hon, John D. Bellamy's opinion, so
expressed in the meeting, was that it
was a feasible and practical proposi
tion and that the city would rue the
day she turned it down in event ac
tion of this nature was taken. It
bears the endorsement of the heads
of the principal banks of the city and
of men who have made fortunes
through their good business judgment.
When presented this way, Wilming
ton could not do other than accept it.
Mr. Malcolm G. Little as been ap
pointed advertising manager for New
Hanover county. Already he has giv
en the movement much publicity by
distributing literature to the sales
agencies, the War Savings Societies,
corporations and business houses.

Sugeon General Gorgas Calls
Secretary Bakers Atten- -don
to the Camp
Washington, Feb. 13.- Unsanitary
conditions prevailing at Camp Greene
were called " ta the attention of Sec
retary Baker today by Surgeon Gen
eral Gorgas in a memorandum setting
forth that bad drainage, insufficient
material" and fevercrowdinfir are en
dangering the health of men quarter

Although sick rates are not notably
high and measles and pneumonia cas
es appeared on the decline at the last
health report, the Surgeon General
suggests to the Secretary that unsan
itary conditions mentioned in his
memorandum should be corrected at
Once "to prevent increased sickness
and mortality which may result from
.The chief reason givgn Jby General
Gorgas for the unsanitarv conditions
is the wet weather character of the
soil, and the temporary nature of the
camp. Knee deen mud has interfered
with the removal of garbage and there
has not been enough fuel for burning
it, ne says.
Limited facilities for hfiatinir w&tav
or bathing has resulted in men be-
cmomg dirty. Water from kitchens,
bath and latrines, the memorandum
says, is removed by ditches, surface
drainage or stands in pools. The fth nr.

unsanitary conditions may be expect
