Mrs. J. Sidney Cooper, .of Handerson,
was in Southport Monday
to discuss with Mayor John

in memory of the troops
stationed at Deep Water Point
near Southport, during the War
of 1812.
Mrs. Cooper is president of the

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

Plans call for an impressive ceremony
in connection with the occasion,
which has been tentatively
set for April 13.

The Civic Club has a

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.

the interests of his

that time.
Mr. Clark was unopposed
for the nomination in 1936,

The County Forest Warden

And Figures To Show
Loss That Is Being Incurred
By County
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.

received from E. A. Sterling,

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
