Prizes Are Offered
This is the opening day
for the state-wide salvage
campaign to begin, and the
men, women and children
of the state are called on
to make their greatest ef
fort to gather every scrap
of metal possible. From
worn out car bodies and
saw mill boilers to old hor
se shoes and hinges the
material can be used in!
carrying on the war.
Newspaper Sponsoring
The Newspapers of Nor
th Carolina are sponsoring
the contest, and are offer
ing prizes that amount to
more than $3,000 to the
counties, business firms,
junior organizations and
individuals who turn in
the most scrap. The coun
ty award will be made on
a per capita basis so that
all counties will have an
equal chance.
The contest was planned •
to give competition and;
provide friendly rivalry
among the collecting agen
cies. The scrap is the main
thing, and that person or
county who works to the
hftgt .of
he wins a prize or not, willT
share in this great and vi-!
tal contribution to the war'
effort. “ •
Scrap is priceless. Or it
may be the price of our lib- 1
ertjr and freedom. (
Three Weeks Contest
The contest will last for
three weeks, Oct. 1-21 How
ever, —t h e gopernment
trucks will probably not be
here until Monday, Oct. 5.
During the entire drive
the responsibility for its
success will rest primarily
on individuals. Boys and
girls and their mothers and
fathers must gather up the
junk so that it may be load
ed on the trucks easily.
The scrap may be sold
by individuals or it may be
donated. If it is donated
by individual collectors the
proceeds will be received
by the county defense cou
ncil the designated re
ceiving agency, J. B. King
has been named treasurer
for the council to sign re
ceipts for all donated metal
All schools are named as
deposit centers and money
from the junk collected at
the school will go to the in
dividual school.
Many Inquiries
Many inquiries have
been received by the Sal
vage Committee— during
the past few 4ays. In many
instances it has been im
possible to give a satisfac
tory reply since it has not
been clear just how the col
lection will be made. How
ever, when the campaign
gets into operation it will
be easier to understand
how it will be best to carry
it on for the maximum ef

Proposals to name a new
Navy cruiser “USS CHAR-i
LOTTE” highlighted pro
ceedingss today as North
Carolina stepped up plans
for the biggest and most
colorful Navy Day obser
vance in history.
Begun 21 years ago,
Navy Day never before
has seen its fostering na
tion at war, and this year
it will carry a greater sig
nificance than was even
imagined when a young
American Legion adjutant
proposed the observance
in honor of “the greatest
fleet in the world.”
A thousand potential
Navy Air Corps cadets,
stationed at Chapel Hill,
will participate in the pa
rade, and a token enlist
ment of 200 men who will
represent the 2,000 North
Carolina volunteers during
October will take place at
Memorial Auditorium.
Governor J. Melville
Broughton has proposi
jtioned the Navy Depart
ment that a cruiser be na
med for the city of Char
lotte. “The people of Nor-i
!th Carolina,” he said,
j “would consider it a signal
honor to have a cruiser of
the United States Navy
| named in honor of one .of
’ her cities.”
