way's recent request 'or permis
sion to substitute "mixed train"
service on its Wilmlngton-Fayette-ville
run has been granted by the
Utilities Commission, it was an
nounced by Chief Clerk, R. O.
By its ruling, the comisslon will
allow ACL to take off its passen
ger train between Wilmington and
Fayetteville and use it for addi
v tienal service between Wilmlng
' ton and Rocky Mount thus ful
' filling anirder of the commission
and requests of military ehcampi
ments in this area for additional
": service. Two cars of the Wilmington-Rocky
Mount train will be op
' era ted as "through cars' between
'Wilmington and Washington.
The use of "mixed train" ser
vicecombined freight and pass
enger cars between Fayetteville
and Wilmington will provide this
section .with necessary passenger
service, the commission feels. As
many passenger cars as neces
sary will be put on the run, Mr.
Selfaid. ' Only through freight
may be hauled on the run.
Previously, the commission had
denied ACL's request that it be
allowed to discontinue passenger
. service between Wilmington and
Fayetteville in order to increase
its service between Wilmington

fly the chicks to Europe after the

food. The idea is practical.
Thousands of baby chicks once

Refutes Letters Written
By Some; Getting Only
Cpl. Stokes Westbrook. German
prisoner of war, writes his mother
that the American prisoners are
going hungry. He refutes state
ments made by some boys who
are prisoners, that the Red Cross
is taking care of them. Evidently
Cpl. Westbrook's letter got by
uncensored. He. says that they
get very little to eat except soup
and that it is very weak.
The letter was written to his
mother, Mrs. L. G. Westbrook of
the B. F. Grady section on July
23rd and received by her Novem
ber 18th. Cpl. Westbrook was
captured in North Africa on Feb.
His letter follows:
Dearest mother and family,
I sincerely hope you are well.
I am still suffering the pain of
hunger. The food we get is very
little, it is mostly soup with no
strength at all. Some of the boys
have received letters from home
saying, the Red Cross is taking
care of us. That is not true, we
have not received but three boxes
from the Red Cross. We are not
getting parcels from the Red
Cross. I wish you would tell them
so, and send me all you can. I have
no toilet articles of any kind, and
only the clothes I have on, and
they are very poor. But I rather
you would send food if you can.
Anything to eat, it doesn't matter
what it is. I hope to hear from
you all soon.
