The paint brush should be applied liberally on all sides, houses and business buildings should be repaired, grounds should be looked after and everthing possible should be done to welcome the visitors to a clean, friendly little city. In this connection, said the Mayor, Woman's Club can be a very helpful factor.

Mrs. Cooper is president of the state organization of descendants of veterans of the second war with England. With her Monday was Miss Ettie Brown, of Flora MacDonald College, and Mrs. Wayne Spender, of Wilmington. Permission will be asked of Major Ralph Millis to erect the marker on the garrison grounds.

May Stage Out At Southpo The Civic Club hopes to stage an outboard racing regatta at Southport on April 10th. Commodore John Anderson of the Carolina Outboard Association at Wilmington was written to Sunday and querried as to the probabilty of his boys being able to appear here on that date and conditions under which they would come.

Its work has all been along the lines performed by a Chamber of Commerce. It has never sought to intrude on the duties and priveleges of the Woman's Club, but it has stood by ready to extend any possible aid and cooperation that the Woman's Club might ask for. The Woman's Club and the people, of Southport, should begin now to encourage cleaning up and painting up. The encouragement will be more effective if example is mixed with it. The willing and anxious should begin operations at home and then carry on. It is not just organization efforts that Southport needs now.

C., W Willful Waste Of Forests Is Scored By Jones The County Forest Warden Dawson Jones Cites Facts And Figures To Show Loss That Is Being Incurred By County RECENT LOSS BY > FIRE IS RECITED Most Of The Forest Fires In Brunswick County In Past Month Has Been Caused By Carelessness Or Design Last week's rain brought only temporary relief from the serious forest fire situation in Brunswick county, and County Forest Warden Dawson Jones renews his plea for consideration and cooperation from citizens of the county More acres have burned over since March 1, according to Warden Jones, than during any other period since he became head of the forest fire fighting corps of the county. "Spvornl thousand dollars worth of Brunswick county timber lands have gone up in smoke since the first day of March," said Warden Jones yesterday. "This means the loss of tax values that it will take years to regain. Records show that this county lost $1,500,000 in tax values prior to 1934 because of forest fires. Since that time, due to forest fire protection, a fine growth of young pines has been started. With this new growth of young timber tax values are on the increase at the same time the owners are having dollars added to their property value. Much of the 1934 loss has been regained. "In the past 18 months approximately 150-thousand acres of Brunswick county timber lands have changed hands. Much of this property formerly was classed as a burden on the tax books, but it now is held by companies who not only pay their taxes, but are improving the value of the property.

A carload of delegates from the lower end of the county was expected to go to Charlotte, but plans for the trip failed to materialize. Discuss Need For New Hotel Expressions From All Sides Indicate That Erection Of Modern Hostelry Here Would Help Southport For months the need of a new and modern hotel of 50 rooms for Southport has been talked on every hand, and the talk has not been confined to citizens of Southport. Up-state citizens are unhesitating in their assertion that such a hostelery would make Southport What is more, they believe that Southport offers the best hotel opportunity in North Carolina. It would have a big year-round patronage, attracting thousands of people and their presence would enhance the value of every piece of property in town. The trouble, so far, is that there has been much talk without any concerted effort towards bringing matters to a head. Believing that something can at least be started, several interested citizens are asking for a mass meeting at the Brunswick county courthouse Thursday night, April 1st. i All property owners and all business interests of the town are asked to be present or represented at this meeting. The need of a hotel will be frankly discussed and an effort will be made towards arriving at some plan to interest experienced hotel people and capital in providJPoBttowetf on ftgt i) P0R1 i A Good Comi ednesday, March 23, 19i FOR CLERK ( 4 B, g MPl|W wksl^JM 1 B.

The reason ? There also is a new system for sending out niortthly bills. Instead of allowing a 20 percent discount from the bill rendered, statements will be sent out net. For example: If you have been escaping with a minimum charge, your bill for March will be $1.44. But there will be no discount front that amount, and you must |>ay on or before April 10th or a twenty-percent penalty will be added. If you havent paid before April 25 your current will be discontinued, and it will cost fiftycents to be re-connected.
