Move From Here
Brunswick County Representative
Has Announced
Plans To Move From
Southport To Practice
Law In Western North
Carolina
Representative R. E. Sen telle
said Monday that he and his
family will move from Southport
[ to Western North Carolina, where
he is considering two very attractive
offers to form a law
partnership. He and Mrs. Sentelle
are packing their furniture and
other belonging this week and
will leave just as soon as he can
wind up his local law practice,
he said.
Denying reports that he was
arrested several days ago in
Montgomery county for drunken
driving, the Brunswick county
representative to the last two
sessions of the North Carolina
general assembly declared that
these developments have in no
way influenced his decision to
move. He declared that either of
the two law openings which he
has under consideration hold
greater promise or nnanciai remuneration
than he could expect
in Brunswick county.
| Mr. Sentelle came to Southport
, in 1928 as county superintendent
of schools, a position which he
! held until he resigned in January.
1935. to go to the legislature.
During the past year he
j served as solicitor of the Brunswick
county Recorder's Court.
During his residence in Brunswick
county Mr. Sentelle has

church work, and for three years
has been superintendent of the

Shallotte Boy
Joins The Navy
James Clarence Chadwick,
Son Of Mr. and Mrs.
John V. Chadwick, Was
Enlisted In U. S. Navy
Last Week
Jamea Clarence Chadwick, age
19, son of Mr. and Mrs. John V.
Chadwick, of route 2, Shallotte,
was enlisted in the navy Thursday,
April 15. He is a graduate
of Shallotte high school.
Chadwick was enlisted through
the Wilmington recruiting office,
along with four other boys from
the Wilmington district which include
the following counties:
Brunswick, Columbus, Bladen,
Sampson, Duplin, Pender ana
New Hanover. This months quota
was the largest number to be
enlisted through the Wilmington
office in one month since the office
was re-opened in July, 1935.
It is expected that a larger
quota will be assigned to this
district Dt the near future. This
expectation is based on the fact
that thq monthly quota for the
[entire United Stated is to be increased
from 1200 per month to
1450 per month in the near fu!
turc.
Men who are interested in the
J navy should apply at Navy Rejcruiting

House, Wilmington, and get their
'name on the list in order to be
[eligible for an early call.
Attention To
Painting Homes
With The Spring Comes An
Urge To Clean Up The
Premises And Beautify
Homes
With winter's accumulation of
soot and dirt out of the way and
! spring rains and sunshine bright[ening
the lawn and flower garden,
home owners begin clean-up
and paint-up campaigns on their
houses and yards. The occupant
of a home who does not take
pride in the appearance of his
; yard and living quarters is an
exception. The central point of
[ attack in the campaign is the
[painting of the house or other
buildings, so in the spring home
owners' thoughts turn to paint.
The U. S. Forest Products Laboratory,
Madison, Wis., in line!
with its general activities on the]
more efficient utilization of wood, |
has accumulated much informa-1
' tion on the painting of wood J
I which can be put to good use in
' the spring paint-up campaign.
