'Reap the Wild Wind'
"Reap the Wild Wind", an out
standing screen spectacle in tech
nicolor, will begin a two-day run at
the Watts Theatre here, beginning
The period of Thelma Strabel's
Saturday Evening Post story is 1840
and the scene is Key West, Florida,
Charleston, S. C., Havana and the
sea lane between. The screenplay
deals with the operations of salvag
ers who feloniously prearrange the
wrecking of ships on the Florida
reefs so they can plunder their car
goes. The complications of the plot
involve many characters and many
incidents of violence, including fights
between men, between ships and
sand storms, finally between divers
and a giant squid.
The production equals, if it does
not excel, Cecil B. DeMille's utmost

Some Timber Need Not
Be Seasoned For Firewood
Although most trees do require
seasoning before they are used as
fuel, the small amount of moisture
in some timber at the time of cut
ting makes seasoning almost unnec
essary. Among such trees arc: black
locust, shagbark hickory, lodgepole
pine, American beech, Virginia or
scrub pine, white ash, red pine, and
a few others.
the scenes surpassing precedent in
grandeur of pigmentation, and the
DeMille direction is in consonance
with his standard.
Hay Milland, Paulette Goddard,
John Wayne, Raymond Massey,
Lynne Overman and Robert Preston,
led the large cast, in about that or
der, and momentum is preserved
with only momentary letdown from
start to finish.
Don't fail to see DeMille's latest
spectacle, "Reap the Wild Wind," at
the Watts Theatre on September

Red dross War Aid

Washington, D. C.?As World War

sponsibilities which it has taken on
with the entrance of the United
States in the conflict, will continue
its extensive foreign war relief pro
Assurance that civilian war vic

been given by Chairman Norman H.

Cross relief supplies have been sent
overseas since the invasion of Po
land on September 1, 1939, hurled
the world into war.
More than 30,000,000 persons, most
of them women and children, have
been aided by these supplies, which
included medicine and hospital
equipment, food, clothing, bankets
and a variety of other necessities

Cotton Bale Covers
Ciiul Greater Use
Cotton bale covers or "wrappers"
will play an important part in the
marketing of this year's crop, ac
cording to J. A. Shanklin, cotton
specialist of the N. C. State College
Not only will they give North Car
olina cotton growers a neat-appear
ing and well-protected bale, but al
so they will assure an opportunity !
to use a fabric manufactured from
their own product.
Shanklin explained that coopera
tive efforts of all major cotton trade
organizations and the Agricultural
Marketing Administration of the U.
S. Department of Agriculture recent
ly resulted in a program whereby
growers would receive a 7-pound
gross weight allowance when they
market their cotton.
"By using cotton covers or pat
terns," the State College specialist
said, "growers are helping to relieve
the critical shortage of jute brought
on by the war. All producers have
the right to demand that 7 pounds |
be added to the gross weight of their j
cotton-covered bales when they sell
Jute wrappers and ties on a 500-1
pound bale weigh around 21 pounds,'
while the cotton patterns and ties1
weigh about 14 pounds. The Depart
ment of Agriculture has operated a
program to make patterns available
at a reasonable price, and the 1942
progrm provides for a production of
4,000,000 cotton patterns.
Around 11,000 bales of cotton are
used in the making of a million pat
terns, Shanklin pointed out. There
is about six yards of fabric in a pat
It is estimated that 130,000 bales
will make enough patterns to cover
a 12,000,000-bale crop.
was sent to the British Isles to aid
civilians bombed from their homes.
Assistance to Russia already has
passed the $4,000,000 mark, and sup
plies valued at an equal sum also
have been sent to China, where an
estimated 4,245,000 persons, includ
ing 1,600,000 children, were aided.
Polish, Green and Yugoslavian refu
gees who escaped to the middle East
and civilian war sufferers in Eri
trea and Ethiopia also have received
Red Cross aid.
More than 1,500,000 volunteer
Red Cross workers assisted in mak
ing the garments and surgical dress
ings sent overseas.
Another impprtant item of Red
Cross foreign war relief has been
the distribution of food packages to
prisoners of war in Europe through
the International Red Cross Commit
tee in Geneva. To date, more than
a half-million such packages and
large quantities of tobacco and
clothing have been sent over for dis
tribution. Through Itftjnquiry serv
ice, the Red Cross aiso has aided per
sons in the United States in estab
lishing communication with rela
tives and friends, both civilian and
military, in occupied countries, thus
relieving anxiety over their safety.
