Tomorrow will be Poppy Day in
Beaufort and Morehead City and
throughout the nation.
From early morning until night
fall, volunteer workers of The
American Legion Auxiliary will be
on the streets offering memorial
poppies to be worn in honor of
the dead of the two world wars.
In exchange for the flowers they
will receive contributions for re
habilitation work among the dis
abled war veterans and for child
welfare work among children of
The poppies, which are crepe pa
per replicas of the wild poppies
that grew on the European battle
field of the two wars, have been
made by disabled veterans work
ing in hospitals and convalescent
workrooms throughout the coun

are under the direction of Mrs.
James H. Potter, III, poppy chair
man or Carteret unit No. 99 of
the American Legion auxiliary.
Mrs. Philip K. Ball, president of
the auxiliary, Morehead City Post
46, is in charge of the sale there.
A large corps of volunteer work
ers has been organized to distri
bute tne poppies in downtown and
neighborhood centers. The pop
pies to be distributed here have
been made by veterans at Fayette
ville. "Much depends upon the success
of Poppy Day," said Mrs. Potter.
"On the public response to our
Poppy Day appeal depends the
Auxiliary's ability to carry for
ward its work for the disabled
war veterans and for the children
from whom war has taken a fath
er's support. We would not like
co i them with empty hands.
Poppy Day contributions give us
the means to serve them with
more than words of cheer.
"But the poppy is more than a
badge for those who contribute to
our rehabilitation and child wel
fare work," she emphasized. "It
is a symbol of individual tribute
to the war dead a sign that the
wearer holds in his heart a place
of honor for those who died for

Bill Bailey, of tenor guitar and

Morehead City again this week by

The veteran trouper, of whom

Last spring, visitors aboard the
Carlana when it stopped at ('apt.

been greeted by another member
of the Bailev family, Tiny.

than she had on this earth, though.
for the little fox terrier made the
real home for her mas-1

her with the kindness and atten

Tiny, at the age of 13 years, was
suffering from a tumor weighing
three and a half pounds and she
herself was slightly more than
three times that.
Anxious to cure the lovable pup,
the Bailey's inquired about having
the tumor removed, but were told
that the operation would mean

The doctor convinced Bill other

Demolition ol Village
PRAGUE (AP) One wall
stands in the middle of a razed
area in Chomutov, 60 miles west of
Prague a monument to supersti
tion. The town council planned to
demolish a group of buildings.
many of them erected in the 16th
and 17th centuries.
Most of the workmen were Slo
vaks and gypsies, both loaded down
with centuries of superstition.
When they came to the mysterious
wall, a stone fell from the top and
broke a Workman's leg. Another
workman uncovered a stone on
which was carved the relief of a
woman's face. A moment later an
other stone, with a carving of a
dog's head on it, was found.
Then a rumor swept through the
labor gang that a tube containing
qn ancient letter had been found
which recorded that on that spot
a nun had been buried alive with
her pet dog. Anyone who disturb
ed the spot of the grave would be
punished by death so the rumor
rag, and work stopped.
In vain, foremen pointed out
that back in the Middle Ages
builders put their signature stones
into walls and that these mysteri
ous carvings were just that. No
one could produce the rumored let
ter. The town councillors were
still looking for workmen to finish

warts arc cured either by pulling

by the magic of wizards."
