Tests covering about 130,000 traineers show that 47.13 per cent are above normal intelligence, whereas only 81 per cent of the population in general falls into the "above normal" group. The Adjutant General's office, which administers intelligence and aptitude tests to selectees, an nounced these findings and de clared that "this extra complement of intelligence" was helping the draft troops to "learn faster and learn more." It had been estimated at the start of the Selective Service pro gram last October that 7 per cent would be in Intelligence Group I; 24 per cent in Group II; 38 per cent in Group III; 24 per cent in Group IV, and the remaining 7 per cent in Group V. Instead, the intelligence grades of trainees were found by army tests to be: Group 1, 9.51 per cent; Group II, 37.62 per cent; Group III, 29,25 per cent; Group JV, 15.60 cent. Thus 47.13 of the tested trainees were above the normal Group III rating, as compared with 31 per cent of civilians; and only 23.62 per cent of the draftees were ' be low the average," as compared witn 31 per cent of civilian men, Tn insure that it gets the light men into the right army jobs, the Adjutant General s office applies four tvnes of tests; the general classification test which places men in intelligence groupings; tests oi artitude in mechanical and electri cal lines; a non-language examina tion for those who cannot read or write English, and a minimum literacy test. The tests have expedited the task of providing the maximum amount of training in the one-year draft period, for the commander need not waste time trying to discover the capabilities of the men placed under him. Knowing their qualifi cations at the start, the Adjutant General's office has reported, the 75 Head of Cattle Sold At Clyde Yard Seventy-five head of cattle were sold last Thursday at the Haywood Stock Yards at Clyde. Prices per hundredweight were: Cows, $5.75 to J7.90; heifers, J5.60 to $9.30; steers, $ 7.10 to $7.60; calves, $6.60 to $11.50. per cent, and Group V, 8.02 per ' commander's "training program On Garden FRESH FRUITS All Displayed So You Can See What You're Getting ALL PRODUCE KEPT ON REFRIGERATION AT NIGHT moves at a faster pace and well- MARRIAGES Joseph V.

Clark Dr. Reynolds Makes State-Wde Drive On Prostitutes Dr. Carl Reynolds, state health officer broadened the campaign against prostitution in defense camp areas to include the entire state during the past week. Futhermore, he said, "we do not propose simply to arrest prostitutes and leave the higher-ups unmo lested, but start with the 'madam' and close her doors. There is not going to be any delay or Hillw-dallvin about this matter." Dr. Reynolds said a rederai law will be invoked In the effort to stamp out prostitution in military Momn mil manpuvera areas, and he culled on state and local law enforcement agencies to co-operate in the campaign elsewhere. "So far as we are concerned, we are going to see that every means is invoked to rid North Carolina of these women, a large percentage of whom are infected with syphilis and gonorrhea and constitute a menace to health," Dr. Reynolds declared. . The campaign, he stated, is aim ed at itinerants as well as inmates of bawdy houses. When prostitutes are arrested and convicted, Dr. Reynolds de clared, "they will be held in cus tody until they are cured. The law gives us this right and we are go ing to exercise it, and I dont mean maybe." The state has provided a tem porary detention camp for women convicted of prostitution. Page, et ux. J. B.
