A s *so*
Colonial Stores Incorporated, one of
the largest grocery companies in the
Southeast, will sponsor a $30,000 cash
scholarship award contest, Scott W.
Allen, president has announced.
The unique competition, believed to
be the first scholarship contest for
consumers ever held, has been hailed
by governors and leading educators as
an outstanding contribution to South
ern education and progress. The con
test will begin February 23. It will
close midnight, March 31. Anyone
is eligible to enter, and entry blanks
may be obtained free at any Colonial
Store —no purchase required.
A total of 60 cash scholarships
ranging from $2,500 to $250, in addi
tion to 210 fountain pen and pencil
sets and 30 sets of Encyclopedia Bri
tannica, valued at $20,000, will be dis
tributed in Georgia, North Carolina
and South Carolina and in Randolph,
Barbour and Houston Counties in Ala
bama and Leon County in Florida
The awards will be made on the
basis of a letter written on one of the
two subjects: (1) “Why a young man
or woman should have a college edu
cation,” or (2) “What Colonial Stores
cah do to make your shopping more
Designed to afford a number of
young men and women the opportuni
ty to continue or advance their pres
ent education, the contest is open to
everyone, and officials of the company
emphasized that anyone can enter
without charge simply by obtaining
an entry blank from any Colonial
Store. . .
Although there is no limit to the
number of entries each person may
submit, each entry must be made on
the official contest blank and must
be submitted to Colonial Stores, Schol
arship Contest Editor, on or before
midnight, March 31, 1950.
'‘Parents can win for their children,
older people can win for younger
friends or relatives, or they can use
the scholarship money to further their
own education,” Mr. Allen said in an
nouncing the contest.
“This section will prosper and suc
ceed in direct proportion as its people
increase their skills and knowledge
through higher education,” he contin
ued, “and it is with this idea in mind
that we have designed our scholarship
plan to benefit the area in which Co
lonial Stores operate.”
Mr. Allen pointed out that faculty
members of a well-known college or
university in each state have been ap
pointed to judge the entries submit
ted in that state. He also emphasized
that neither expert writing nor gram
matical corrections is necessary to
win, since judges will be searching for
letters that are concise, original and

COMPLIMENTS FOR SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN AND MARlNES—Secretary of Defense Louis
Johnson hailed visiting outstanding servicemen on their first tour of Washington by declaring, “We know .
that out in the field with men like yourselves we have unification. We consider it a privilege to be ■
able to meet you and tell you what our aims and problems are. It brings unification of the armed j
forces into a new era of understanding. Lunch is on me today. Goo ! luck!” Left to right are, T/Sgt. j

age to real or personal' property as
the result of enemy action during
World War II should furnish details
of such loss to the War Claims Com
mission as soon as possible, according
to Mr. Jasper Wiggins, eVterans Ser
vice Officer. Mr. Wiggins stated that
the WiOC also is anxious to receive in
formation from all persons, military
and civilian, concerning personal in
jury, impairment of health, torture,
unpaid wages for labor, etc., due to
enemy action during World War 11.
Mr. Wiggins states that he has the
proper forms for reporting such in
formation and will render assistance
necessary in completing them.
Under the act creating it in 1948 i
the War Claims Commission is requir- ;
ed to make this survey of war dam- •
ages suffered by individuals, corpor
ations, etc., and make its report to the
President, for referral to Congress, i
by March 31st of this year. To be
included in this report, completed '
forms must be received in Washing
ton by March 2nd.
The District Office of the North
Carolina Veterans Commission, 206
Kramer Building, Elizabeth City,
North Carolina, and the County Ser
vice Officer, still have available forms
to be used by former prisoners of war
in applying for the SI.OO a day prison
er of war allowance. Payment of these
claims, Mr. Wiggins points out, is not
made from U. S. Government funds
but are paid out of impounded enemy
funds in this country.
