"OVER THE HILL," the picture
which U hailed throughout the world
of motion pieturee aa the greatest of
them all, will begin a run at the
RICHARD THEATRE. Jund 9th end

with a high probability of the run

It is safe to say that po .picture

Local motion picture devotees have
been wanting it for many months^ and

This production does not dasale the
eye, it does not owe its huge success
to the fact that an immnse amount
of money was spent bi its production;
but the story is one that goes straight
to the heart and makes the spectator

him back to~ those golden hours with
Aside from the motion picture
"fens" who have been insistent that
"Over the-Hill" be shown here, it is
expected that hundreds of persons will
see the photoplay because of their
love for and familiarity with the
poems of Will Carleton, known as
the "Farm Poet," whose popularity
was as great at one time as that of
James Whitcomb Riley today. Car
le ton's poems were recited at every
school commencement or other pub
lic gathering for years; in fact, no
program of twenty years ago was
complete without the poems on which
this picture is based, or other such
familiar pieces as "I've Gone With a
Handsomer Man" or "Betsy and I Are
Out." ? <? i
The popularity of the picture has
made Mrs. Mary Carr, who created
the role of Ma Benton in the picture,
probably the best known actress on
the screen today. -Although she has
been extremely busy in new pictures
at the Fox studies, a widespread de

compelled her from time to time to
abandon her studio work temporarily
and make tours so that peojple could

had come to love by reason of her
work in "Over the Hill."
"Over the Hill" was many months
in the making. The idea for a picture
based on Will Carleton's poems was
conveived by William Fox himself.
Much of the humanly sympathetic de
tail is the product of his ksen-sighted
ness and knowledge of human nature,
inspired by his love of "Just plain
folks and a desire to Kivj them a
picture which pvery man, woman and
child would like. He entrusted the
directing of the picture to Harry Mil
larde, who worked from a scenario
written by Paul H. Sloane.

NO CRITICISM IS MADE OF THOSE TOBACCO FARMERS,
WHO AFTER GIVING THE MATTER DUE CONSIDERATION
SIGNED THE 5 YEAR POOL, BELIEVING IT BEST TO DO
SO, BUT CRITICISM IS MADE, AND JUSTLY SO, OF THOSE
WHO INDUCED FARMERS TO SIGN, TELLING THEM IF
THEY DID NOT SIGN THEY WOULD HAVE NO PLACE
TO SELL THEIR 1922 CROP OF TOBACCO. IN SUCH
CASES, OUR OPINION IS THE FARMERS ARE NOT BOUND
TO DELIVER THEIR TOBACCO TO THE POOL.
WHY IS IT THAT THE OFFICERS OF THE COOPERATIVE
ASSOCIATION HAVE GIVEN ORDERS THAT ANOTHER
DRIVE MUST BE PUT ON TO GET MORE TOBACCO FARM
ERS TO SIGN THE S YEAR POOLING CONTRACT, WHEN
CLAIM AFTER CLAIM HAS BEEN MADE THAT THEY HAVE
ALREADY SIGNED UP FROM 60 TO 95 PER CENT OF THE
TOBACCO? ARE THEY AFRAID TO HAVE THEIR SYS
TEM TRIED OUT SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE AUCTION!
SALE OF TOBACCO WHICH HAS PREVAILED FOR 30
YEARS ? WE SUGGEST TO THE TOBACCO FARMERS AND
BUSINESS MEN GENERALLY THAT NOTHING IS FAIRER
THAN HAVE THE COOPERATIVE METHOD OR ANY
OTHER METHOD TRIED OUT BY THE SIDE OF THE AUC
TION SYSTEM AT THE SAME TIME. IF THIS NEW SYS
TEM GIVES THE FARMERS MORE DOLLARS FOR THEIR
TOBACCO, THEN OUR FARMERS AND BUSINESS PEOPLE
ARE INTELLIGENT MEN AND WILL SOON FIND IT OUT.
IF THEIR NEW SYSTEM GIVES THE FARMERS ? DOL- -
' LARS FOR HIS TOBACCO THEN IT SHOULD AND WILL

QUICKLY BLOW UP. FARMERS IN EASTERN NORTH
CAROLINA HAVE BEEN READING CLAIMS THAT THE
KENTUCKY POOL HAS BEEN MAKING FINE SALES FOR
THEIR TOBACCO SOME AS HIGH AS 29c, BUT UP TO THIS
THEY HAVE ONLY PAID THE FARMERS ABOUT 7 or 8c
IF THEY SHOULD GET 7 OR 8c MORE WHICH WOULD BE
MUCH LESS THAN AUCTION PRICES, WHAT HAS BECOME
OF THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS HELD BACK?
DQE#ANY THINKING MAN BELIEVE THAT ANY TOBAC
CO WAREHOUSE HAS BEEN TURNED OVER TO THE
ASSOCIATION BECAUSE THE OWNERS WANTED TO
HELP THE FARMERS? IF YOU WILL LOOK OVER THE ,
LIST OF WAREHOUSES OFFERED YOU WILL FIND MANY
WHICH HAVE NOT RUN FOR YEARS, OTHERS HAVE BEEN
RUNNING AT A GREAT LOSS, OTHERS WHOSE BUSINESS
GREATLY DECLINED IN 1921 AND PROSPECTS OF A
GREATER DECLINE IN 1922. SO WITH PROMISES OF
BIG PRICE, BIG RENTAL AND BIG FAT SALARIES THEY
WERE FINALLY PERSUADED TO HELP (?) THE POOR
FARMER BY LETTING HIM FURNISH THE TOBACCO OUT

GENTLEMEN LOOK OVER THE LIST OF WAREHOUSES
OFFERED AND YOU WILL BE CONVINCED THAT THE
POOR FARMER WAS NOT SO MUCH CONSIDERED AS
SELF, AND SELF ALONE, IN DISPOSING OF THEM TO THE
