Try it! Study Navy Recruiting Plans STATIC Inspector Says Navy Not Getting Enough Men to Meet Growing Fleet Needs "The Navy is not getting as many men as it needs," declared Commander J. E. Boak, new recruiting inspector for the Southeastern Recruiting Area, yesterday. Boak visited the Raleigh district station as a part of his tour of the South Atlantic states which make up his territory. To And what can be done to enlist more men out of the South is the purpose of his visit, the Commander said.

The Raleigh station, with McFarland Wood in command, is rated' among the leaders in area recruiting stations, the inspector said, but ments must be boosted here as well as all South. "I believe there is enough patriotism in North Carolina youths that they will want to do something for their country," he asserted. "And I maintain that the Navy is the best service that young men can Commander J. E. Boak, right, -appointed Navy recruiting inspector for the southeastern area, the Raleigh Navy Recruiting, headquarters yesterday first tour of inspection of district stations.

He is shown conferring with Lieutenant Commander MacFarlan Wood of Raleigh, chief Navy recruiter for North and South Carolina. Asked about progress of Navy recruiting in the South, the inspector said that he could tell little as this was his first tour, but that recruiting in general was falling below the demands for trained men by the ever-expanding two-ocean Navy. "This is the time to join the Navy," he pointed out. "Ambitious young men coming in now are going to be petty officers year after next. Fortyfive per cent of the enlisted men in the Navy now are petty Commander Boak, a quick-speaking, tanned Navy veteran, was executive officer on the light cruiser "Phoenix" before taking over reins on recruiting activities from Maryland to Florida.

Building Inside Raleigh Is Apparently Declining Defense Money: And the Citizens Seem to Flock to Suburbs to Build Emergency program money in Raleigh has not been used to any appreciable degree for buying propst erty, building homes and acquiring real estate in general, according to figures from the building inspector's office here. As a matter of fact, so the real estate men seek to think in general, building and buying have fallen oft since January 1, 1941, when most was just beginning to be turned people thought that defense money loose in large hunks. However. 50 far as Raleigh is concerned, the officials down at City Hall seem to think that there has been very little building inside the city Limits, been because flocking the home build: skirts of the town. Proof of the fact that many have been building since Autumn on the outside of the city limits is a statement from City Building Inspector Pallie Mangum: "Thirty permits to hook up to the city water system sewer lines were issued to persons living outside the city during May.

Only 32 permitted hook with the waterworks inside Raleigh proper." Evidence that less building is going on inside the city this year than for the same period of 1940 is given further in figures. from Mangum's office. From January through May, 1940, there were re 134 permits to build issued by Inspector Manguma, From there were January 97 issued- through 37 less than last year's figure. The big item on this year's the Durham Life Insurance Company's permit to erect a $1,106,750 skyscraper on Fayetteville Street between the county courthouse and Hotel Sir Walter. Since the figures from the inspector's office seem to indicate the falling off of building inside Raleigh, it is interesting to note some of the explanations given.

Some real estate men will tell you that the government is getting all buildmaterials on and off the market just now, and that contractors are busy building barracks for training camps for Some of these same real estate men will glumly admit that less property is now being bought and sold than at any other time in recent years-but they always close by saying, "Don't quote me; I'm trying to boost the real he estate business." One real estate man, when questioned, said that he didn't know what to think of the people who are getting more money now than they've had in their lives. "Why," he exclaimed, "I would be afraid of inflation and I would want to get my money tied up. in real estate; I'd want a home--something more secure than money!" He admitted, UPSET STOMACH AGGRAVATES TEETHING for me when I suffer some of those little ills which come along while I am teething.
