Uncnunl advantages in any kind
of contest spoil the sport for most
Americans. A sense of fairness is
deeply rooted in our people. Some
times a champion athlete is not a

against him if he is unfair.
The public has taken a hand occa
in nllv in the bout between those
heavyweight contestants, Capital
and Labrr. Until very recently. La
bor was the popular favorite, and the
choice w.,s sane. The laborer has
been "the man on the bottom" in
many Innds for countless years and
sympathy for the under dog is a hu
man trait. But this generation of
Americans has seen the tables turn.
Labor in the Unit-d Stat?s is not
the under dog far from it. Every
mature person, who has given the
subject any thought at all, knows
that Capital is no match for Labor
in this country now. Labor has a
club that management can't use; the
strike. What is even more, manage
ment has no weapon that will ap
proximately match it in force and
violence, and hns no (Mense from it.

Godwin Building Block Company
Expects Begin Operation in
Warsaw Around Feb. 1st;
Will Employ About 25 Men.
A new factory for the manufac
ture of cinder blocks, concrete
blocks, waylite blocks and other
building blocks for construction
purposes will begin operation in
Warsaw around February 1st, it
has been announced. The factory
will be known as the Godwin
Building Block Company, owned
and operated by Oliver W. Godwin
and Samuel E. Godwin of Dunn.
The owners have purchased a
suitable site within the Town ot
Warsaw, reported to be in the
western part of the town, upon
which to erect the buildings. The
machinery has been purchased and
will be installed upon completion
of the building.
The plant will have a capacity
of turning out 6,000 blocks each
day, equivalent to building four
houses. Two shifts of men will be
employed, numbering around 25,
and will be ready to meet .the
needs of their customers.
This will bring to Duplin and
the surrounding counties a facil
ity that has long been needed in
this section. In deciding on War
saw and Duplin County, the own
ers said that this was an ideal lo
cation from which to serve East
ern Carolina and the transporta
tion facilities of Warsaw were
above the average in this section.
Flyers Of the Future
Want To Go To College
Flyers of the future are not'
going to be satisfied with being
just good flyers. They want to be
well-educated, well grounded with
an all-round background and ex
perience. This trend was strongly
indicated in an announcement re
leased today by Lt. Com. F. J.
Barnes. II, Director of Office of
Naval Officer Procurement, 1320
G Street, N. W., Washington, D. .
C, giving the results of a nation
wide poll recently conducted by
the Navy among the 17, 18, and
19 year old young men who are
eligible for the Naval Aviation
Preparatory Program (V-5).
As anticipated. 66 percent of the
applicants selected "Flying" in
answer to the question " What
part of the V-5 Program appeals
to you most strongly T" However,
the significant factor is that 4 out
of '5 designated "A chance to get
to college education", in answering
"What is the next strongest ap
peal?" Among parents, 75 percent were
most impressed by the chance for
their sons to receive college edu
Under Navy's V-5 officer pilot
training program, young men 17,
18 or 19 are eligible for selection
for the March 1, 1946 class if
they have graduated from high
school by February 28, 1946. One '
of the unique aspects of the pro
gram is that cadets receive four
terms at an outstanding college
prior to beginning their flight
training. Not only are all expen
ses and maintenance paid for by
the Navy, but the student recei
ves a salary of $50 a month as
well. This is in line with the Na
vy's policy of developing officers
with a well-rOunded education.
Results of the poll, as well as
mounting enlistments for the '
March class, have told the Navy
what it is interested in knowing:
that its V-5 Program has the en
thusiastic endorsement and sup
port of the public.
Air crewmen and ground crew
