Regulations For
Overseas Mail Is
Like Last Year's
Many Parcels To Be Sent
Overseas Again ^ T h is
Year; Early Mailing Is
ATLANTA, Ga., Sept. 10?It's
time to be thinking of mailing
Christmas packages overseas.
Army postal officers at Headquarters
Fourth Service Command
reminded the public that
even though hostilities have ceased
on all fronts, there are still
many thousands of Americar
troops who will spend theii
Christmas in foreign lands anc
these troops will be looking forward
to packages from home.
The regulations governing the
mailing of overseas Christmas
gifts to Army personnel remain
the same as last year .... they
must be posted between September
15 and October 15 .... one
package a week may be sent
(without a request) by any one
person to the same serviceman
... the usual restrictions ai
to size and weight of Christmas
parcels applies?not more than
fifteen inches long or more thar
36 inches in length and girth
combined and maximum weight
five pounds. Most stores have a
stock of boxes approved by the
War Department for overseas gift
The Army asks that gifts be
selected which a soldier is unlikely
to find in the particulai
area in which he is situated and
xl L i ntnvioQ TV t C 1T1

flammable materials (such as
matches and lighter fluids) and
perishable matter are unacceptable
for mailing.
Families and friends of mer
stationed in the China-Burma
Theater, India Theater, the Middle
East, or on the Pacific Islands
are urged to avail themselves ol
the early mailing dale to insure
receipt of Christmas presents b>
Christmas Day. It is suggested
that parcels routed to these distant
bases be mailed as nearlj
as possible to September 15 and
no later than October 1.

of the correct address:

L Beef Producrs
~ AAA Making An Effort To
Aid Beef Raisers By
Giving Subsidy Payments j
Under Certain Conditions
In an effort to encourage
Brunswick County beef raisers to
take advantage of the beef subsidy
payments, C. O. Bennett,
Chairman of the Brunswick County
AAA Committee .urges producers
to endeavor to get the
price that will meet the minimum
stabilization price that will make
! them eligible to leceive these payment.
C. O. Bennett said that, "it1
appears that there are some feed-|
; ers in the county who do not
i know that they are eligible for
| these payments." Explaining the
j requirements for eligibility, C. O.
Bennett defined a "feeder" 8SJ
any person who has purchased or
raised a beef animal and sold
such animal during the period
May 19, 1945, and ending June ^
30, 1946, to a legally authorized ,
slaughterer for slaughter or to
another person who has delivered
such animal to a legally authoriz- 8
ed slaughterer for slaughter with- k
in 29 days after such sale but
not later than June 30, 1946. The
^ payment rate is 50 cents per /
" nundredweight for sales of good
. j and choice cattle weighing 800
t pounds or more.
1 \ The AAA Chairman pointed out
5 the importance of producers keep- ~
- ing supporting evidence such as
> invoices, sale tickets, account <
- sales showing the date of sale,1
name of buyer, point of sale, num.
ber of head, total live weight, i r
price received and the name and;
C address of the slaughterer to
I whom the animals were sold for
.! slaughter. "Such evidence," he
ij added, "will be required by the
II Brunswick County AAA Commit-1
! tee before payments can be auth-!
, I orized."
EI The Beef Cattle Production j
: i Payment Program was designed j
: I to encourage greater beef pro[1
duction by giving the feeder high
j er returns from feeding more
| cattle and feeding them to heavier
? weights and to promote better I
i distribution by directing more!
cattle to authorized slaughterers
! who sell through regular trade 1
| channels.
Mr. Bennett urges feeders to |
I keep in close contact with the j
j Brunswick County AAA office for' (
any assistance that will enable j
them to receive the subsidy pay-!
j | ments on their beef cattle.

Shallotte Gives Full List
Of Teachers; Some Other
Schools Still Short A
Teacher Or Two
At the teachers meeting here
Wednesday it was decided that
inasmuch as all preparations had
been made to open all of the
Brunswick schools on Thursday,
with the exception of Shallotte,
which opening was delayed until
Monday, a session would be held
Thursday and following this all
schools would open Monday.
This plan, which gave the children
one brief holiday, with no
school on Friday, resulted from
the very bad condition of country
roads over which many school
buses have to travel. Some of the
bus routes were said to be Impassible
for the heavy buses.
Reports received Monday evening
were that all schools had a
good opening that morning, although
roads were still bad and
many students were unable to
reach school.
With not all of the schools having
reported a list of their teach
ers tnus tar, 11 seems uiui. uiere
are still two or three teachers
short in the county.
Shallotte reports a full list of
teachers, as follows: Principal,
Henry C. Stone, Shallotte; Mathematics,
Mrs. Edna W. Russ, Shallotte;
English, Miss Frances Hill,
Cedar Grove; Social Science and
English, Mrs. Emma B. Tatum,
Shallotte; Commerce, Miss Betty

nauon. But the average fisherman
contributed 47,000- pounds.
In 1944 both averages were higher,
but the fisherman maintained
his lead with 65,000 pounds. Commercial
fishing still is a wet and
salty business, but it has been a
rich business in the war years,
with members of fishing crews
earning as much as $11,000 annually.
The industry is organizing
and -aims to double American
fish consumption by 1955." Incidentally,
three or four days before
Mr. Sherrill sent us the
above, we had a letter from E.
T. Blair, purchasing agent for
the S. & W. Cafeterias. He stated
he would be down here with us
