Supplemented By Official
Account Of Rescues
Here, at last, is the story j
hich the Pilot wanted to bring j
>u long ago. At the beginning]
' the war, when Nazi U-boats,
ere on the prowl just off ourj
lores, survivors from topedoed j
lips were brought to Southport, j
id though everybody in town
new about them, sometimes even |
lowing the names of the ships, j
le local press was not permitted |
i mention the disasters for se-,
irity reasons.
The editor at that time be- j
oaned the fact that not a word,
>uld be printed although for the J
rst time a real "scoop" was]
ashed in by the waves.
Now, several years later, we j
ing you an account, released!
f the Sixth Naval District pub;
information office, of the
nkings you witnessed back in
le time when Frying Pan Shoals
on its title, "Graveyard of the I
tlantic," or "Coffin Corner," as .
>me seaman designated it.
The following is the official re
ase concerning this section:
The Nazi U-Boats operating
'f Frying Pan Shoals, seaward
om Southport, N. C., torpedoed
vo tankers in March and April, (
>42, only to find them "rise from ,
le grave" to sail again. ,
It was nine minutes past mid- j
ight on a pitch black March 21, ,
>42, when the tanker ESSO ,
ASHVILLE passed the Frying .
an Shoals buoy to port. Then ,
lere was a noise?-"very much j
ke the slamming of a door"?|,
lat sent a tremor through the ,
lip. A few minutes after the
lell hit, an explosion raked the
lip, flames leaped high and both ,
ern and bow rose in the air .
5 the ship buckled in center. [
The stern of the vessel was
ilvaged and was towed to Balti-1
lore where a new bow was fit- j.
id for her. On arrival, some1,
lipyard people "went fishing"
i her tanks, which had been ,
irrying oil but were now loaded ;
ith deep sea fish. She returned ,
i the Battle of the Atlantic. j,
Less than a month later, April ]
2, 1942, the Panamanian reg-i
tered tanker Stanvac Melbourne
as torpedoed 15 miles south of
rying Pan Inner Buoy. Crew
lembers reported three sublarines
were observed, blinking
>mmunications. One of the subs,
i-erturned a lifeboat. !
The STANVAC MELBOURNE
as new, built in 1941, and of
),013 tons. Her captain and
vo crew members remained
board the vessel throughout,
tough he ordered the ship ,
bandoncd. The to-pedo had
lown a hole 25 to 15 feet in j
rr side.
Eighteen hours after that tor-'
edoing, a salvage crew arrived]
rid the ship was towed to |
harleston. She was repaired at
ic Charleston Navy Yard and'
?turned to service.
A .'{,700 ton Latvian cargo j
flip, CILTVA1RA, was torpedoed
'ithout warning off the Carolina
oast near Frying Pan Shoals
nd two of her crew of 32 killed
i a before dawn attack January
0, 1942. Twenty-one survivors
ere picked up by the SS
OCONY VACCUM American oil
inker, and brought to Charleson.
She wos bound for Savannah.
Last ship torpedoed in Sixth
istrict waters was the GEORGE
iDE. which was hit to the
outheast of Southport and Cape
'ear September 12, 1944. Shc|
ook one torpedo almost directly1
stern and immediately after!
fiat explosion, a second torpedo]
pproached from abaft the star-1
oard quarter and passed very1
lose to the ship. ,
Ten minutes late a submarine'
ras sighted off the starboard
uarter at a 300 yard distance,
o close maify on the GEORGE
iDE could hear the dicsel motors,
ficy reported. Two rounds were,
Ired by the Armed Guard crew,
rom their five inch gun, but
ere not believed to have been
ffcctive. The sub crash dived, j
The GEORGE ADE was taken
ito tow and, despite heavy seas, ]
e-ifhed Norfolk, to become still j
nother "ghost ship"?torpedoed
ut saved to sail again.
The John D. GUI, carrying
43,000 barrells of crude oil, was
unk by a torpedo off Wilming-,
on on March 12, 1942. Impact of]
he hit turned the tanker com-1
iletely around Pla.r.ei ffdr.i, the

4-H Club Camp
Great Success
4-H Girls From This Count- ,
ty spent JLast week At
White Lake Along With j
Girls From Other Coun-]
ties
The Brunswick County 4-H
Club girls who could get away
from work last week attended
the annual encampment at White
Lake. With them were girls
from various other counties in
the State. The New Hanover
girls and those from Brunswick
went as a group.
Those attending from Bruns-I
wick county were: Ann, Rebecca
and Catherine McRackan and
Betty Corlette, Southport; Hilda
Mae Hewett, and Nelva Holden,
Supply; Mary Gwynn Chadwicki
and Winneford Register, Shal- j
lotte. The Home Agent, Miss1
Alene McLamb, and Mrs. Odell i
Evans of Leland attended as
adult advisors. Mrs. Evans little
son, Gene, also attended.
The camp was a most successful
one. Mr. R. W. Galphin, j
Farm Agent frcm New Hanover
County, said it was the best
camp he had ever attended and
he has held many camps.
During the week there were
three special instructors other
than the agents and adult leaders
from each county. These instructors
were: Miss Virginia Ward,
Family Life Coordinator, Wilmington;
Mrs. L. B. Brummitt,
Handicraft Instructor, Wilmington;
and Lt. R. Wilson from the
Health Department in Wilmington.
There were seventy-five people
in camp the entire week. Not any
of the girls from this county
had ever been to camp before
but J.iey were all perfect campers.
Catherine and Rebecca McRackan
were recognized as being
among the best campers.
The week was a most helpful
and enjoyable one. Swimming,
and various types of recreation
were enjoyed throughout the
week.

Men Arrested For Hunting
Deer Out Of Season
By Protector Bowmcr
Led by visions of fresh meat
of the venison variety, a. quartet
of deer hunters from Wilmington,
all said to be employees of the
shipyard, found themselves involved
in a foot race with
County Game Protector H. T.
Bowmer on Saturday. The game
protector came off victorious in
the race and all four men are
scheduled to be tried before
Magistrate E. H. Ganey at Leland
this week.
The men arc J. W. Lewis, H.
S. Lewis, Bill Lewis, and U. M.
Reynolds, all giving Wilmington
addresses. They were allegedly
hunting in Town Creek township
when surprised by the game
protector In the resulting foot
race one of the men, aaid to
have been H. B. Lewis, discarded
a late model Remington auto- j
matic shot gun. This Bowmer
retrieved after arresting them.
Another man is also said to have
thrown away his gun, the remaining
two holding on to their
weapons. According

Some months ago the Junior |
Roman's Club of Whiteville was
ery active in one of the War
lond drives. A result of their
fforts was the sale of enough
onds to buy and equip a fighter
lane. The plane was a Hellcat
iightfighter, for use on plane
arriers. These planes, while deigned
for the especially danerous
night fighting, are versa-,
le and good around the clock. I
By a stroke of luck the plane
urchased by the Whiteville
'omen is in the hands of Ensign
iilly Bragaw, son of Mrs. Helen
iragaw of Southport. His wife,
re former Miss Louise Niernsee
nd their baby daughter, also

all speed but really amounts to1
a much larger increase than that
because any tobacco bought by
the warehouse) iien themselves or v
the independent buyers will not ?
be counted against the overall ii
speed. Last season tne speed ofj'1
sales was limited to 360 piles \1
per hour and every pile was'
counted icgardless of who bought!
it. Weight of each pile has | *
been reduced to 250 pounds from d
the 300 pounds effective at last'o
yeai's opening. The weight was *
ieduced from 300 to 250 pounds *
per pile at mid-season last year,?
so the 1945 market open with the g
same weight limit used at the j
closing of the 1944 season. j

tobacco is sold as one of the *
best markets in the border belt. j *
All of the Whiteville warehouse-1

In fact if their experience could J
be combined it would total more ^
than 300 years in the tobacco ^
business. The oldest and the dean' |
of the Whiteville market is M.

the tobacco business for 52 years
