Those ambitious fellows who've been *
trying to reach Mars might just as well be ^
trying to reach another star: Garbo. *
And then, there are those folks who 1
*jdon't have to roll in a glue vat to feel'
vail stuck-up. 1
It's pretty lucky King Edward only 1
lost his head over a woman. Many a king ^
lost his over a chopping block. |s
Many restaurants have posted "No 1
Tipping:" signs on the walls, evidently
with a view of attracting the Scotch 1
trade. j *
Go without dinner dishes and plates *
if you will, but you must have licenses 1
plates, so we've learned. |1
Many motorists have found that it 1
takes three things to make an automobile j
run?gasoline, oil and license tags.
We extend our congratulations to city '
officials upon the fine appearance of t
their new quarters, which they occupied i
for the first time last week. Located on *
the first floor of the new community
center building, the new office is beauti- j
ful from the outside as well as from with- j
The next time you have business with (
the city, go yourself to see just what an 1
improvement the new quarters are over
During the past two weeks there has !
been a period of unusual building activity ]
in Southport. In addition to two new resi- j
dences that are under construction, roof- <
ing and repair jobs have been in progress i
in several sections.
We are glad to see the leaders make '
a start, and we hope their example will '
be followed by some of their neighbors. !
Homes in which their owners take a pride 1
are the greatest asset to any community. (
Beautiful Weather '
Not once during the past 10 days has (
the temperature dropped below the 48 '
degree mark, and the weather has been 1
almofet as ideal as the advertisements that '
made Lalitornia and riorida iamous.
We fear that.it is tempting the wrath'1
of mother nature to write a statement like
this. Rather would we woo her furher '
blessings and plead for Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of this week to be as beautiful
as were those same days last week.
Through the efforts of the Southport
Civic Club arrangements have been made
;for a double-header basketball program
Jiere Friday night, the proceeds to be
,#ised for the construction of shower rooms
in the basement of the Masonic building.
The girls' team from Bladenboro, winners
last year of the Wilmington Star- 1
News tournament, will come here to play
Bolivia, the runner-up team, in what promises
to be one of the best girls games
,of the season. The second half of the ;
double bill will be a contest between the
Camp Sapopa team and the Southport
all-stars. Added to their natural rivalry is 1
the fact that both these teams have been
playing good ball this season.
Basketball fans have a real treat in
store for them, and everyone interested i
in the health and sanitation of boys and
girls playing on basketball teams of the
county should plan to attend this benefit
If the parties who last week made inquiries
regarding the location of a pulp
mill in Brunswick county really are looking
for a suitable location, it is very
doubtful that they will be able to find
a better place.
There are dozens of sites in this county
:asily accessible by water, rail and truck.
More than that, Brunswick county is the
bird largest in timber area in North Car>lina,
is joined on the west by Columbus
ounty?the second largest timber area
:ounty. Bladen county, the state's largest
ounty in point of timber area, and Penler
county, which rates fourth, all are

We are proud, indeed, that Southport

And to the hundreds of visitors who
vill visit the boat while she lies at the
rovernment dock here we also extend a
velcome. The presence of the newest and
'inest of Uncle Sam's submarines is a
.pecial attraction here, but there are dozens
of other permanent features that
nake our town attractive.
For instance, there is Fort Johnson,
vhich stands barely a hundred yards
:'rom the dock where the submarine is
mchored, the first colonial fort in North
Carolina. Read the inscription on the tabet
on the garrison grounds, and if you
vant to go inside the building, the left
ving, which is the Southport Public Lijrary,
is open for visitors.
Looking out across the harbor, and in
' " ? * *
he foreground, is Battery Island, iamous
)ird sanctuary, a sure place of interest
:or the nature lover. Beyond lies Bald
rlead Island, the only spot in North Car)lina
where tropical vegetation flourishes.
\ half-hour boat-ride will carry you to
his place, which is a thousand miles renoved
from its logical geographical locaion.
And to your right, across the harbor,
rou see the buildings of Fort Caswell.
For several years, now, these buildings
lave stood deserted. Recently the owners
aegan efforts to repair and repaint the
iwellings over there in order to get them
eady for vacationists next summer. If
fou want to see a truly amazing scene,
risit Fort Caswell. You will begin planling
now to spend your next summer's
vacation there. *
Up the river toward Wilmington you
:an see the buildings of the U. S. Quarantine
Station. This is the Ellis Island of
North Carolina, for last week there were
:hirty-one members of a grounded steam;r
quartered there. The station is an object
of constant interest to visitors.
Beautiful Franklin Square is not the
east interesting spot in Southport. Hundreds
of native shrubs are growing beside
walks that wind their way beneath

A commercial traveler, visiting a large
business office, jokingly boasted to the
manager that he could pick out all the
married men among the employes. He
He stationed himself at the door as the
employes returned from the noon luncheon
hour and designated those whom he
believe to be married. In almost every instance
he proved to be right.
"How do you know?" asked the manager
in amazement, after the experiment.
The answer was simple. "The married
men wipe their shoes on the mat; the
single men don't."
The National Income
The nation's income this year may total
$62,000,000,000, according to the Department
of Commerce. This will be highest
since 1929. The 1931 income was
$61,700,000,000. In the depression the
national income slumped to $36,000,000,000.
The proper income should be around
On the basis of a $62,000,000,000 income,
however, the per capita income
would be $1,400, compared with $1,097
in 1933. So we are really having "Recovery."

THE STATE PORT PILOT,
Since the Christmas vacation
is over, the pupils are all back
to school, hard at work. You can
especially recognize the seniors
by the sweat on their brow.
The people of Shallotte are being
asked to donate money for
library supplies in order that the
PWA work may continue in the
, high school library. There is a
I library fee required from each
1 high school student and this is
I used to buy new books. The up:
keep on the old books is very
| great because our library is so
| small. So far the library fees
[have had to be used for repair
! materials and not for new books.
The people of the community
therefore are going to donate
funds in order that the school
may have the proper equipment
The second county basketball
game of the series in which Shallotte
has taken part was played
at Southport January 7. The
game was between Shallotte and
Bolivia. The fact that the score
| was 16-16 at the end of the
[game shows that it was very exj
citing. An extra five minutes was
! played in order to break the tie.
!The final score was Bolivia 21,
i Shallotte 19.
The Shallotte boys and Bolivia
boys also played. Their game
turned out differently. The score
was 40 to 11, in favor of Bolivia.

Baby Chicks Need
A Vigorous Start
Only Way To Have Good

Is To Start With Healthy
Chicks And To Keep
North Carolina poultrymen are
facing one of the most important
times of the year with the
arrival of the baby chick season.
Extension poultry specialists at
J State College estimate that 20,000,000
baby chicks will be startled
this year. This is approximately
six chicks for every individual

horde of new birds places a responsible
burden on the shoulders

problems must be met with a

the chicks are to prove profitable
to the farmer. Slipshop methods
