CO-OPS SET GOAL
New Board In Action
Quickly Follows Wishes Of Members
As Expressed In Big Annual Meet
(S. D. Frlssell)
Adopting the slogan of "200 million
pounds of tobacco for 1925" last week,
at their first meeting, the newly elect,
ed board of the Tobacco Growers Co
operative Association, whose new
members are all dirt farmers, were
quick to get into action with policies
recommended at the recent record
breaking annual session of 1500 mem
bers at Raleigh.
To bring the management and the
membership into close contact in
carrying on the business of the to
bacco association, the board last week
agreed to put into effect the resolu
tion urged by the members in annual
session which creates an advisory
board in each of the 22 districts cov<.
ered by the association in three states,
consisting of the delegates who are
elected by the members each year to
name their directors.
According to the action of the1
board these delegates will meet with I
the director of each district "quarter
ly and as often as the director or a
majority of the committee think ad
visable. It shall be their duty to
consider all matters of policy and the
Personnel of the organization oper
tir.-g in their district as advisory."
- - other important decision of the
litv.'.y elected governing board of the
tobic o co-ops last week was to car
ry or. ell present suits begun by the
association and to rigidly enforce the
marketing contract in the courts but I
to deduct no penalties from deliveries f
of tobacco of the 1925 crop from those
who have failed to make deliveries in
ether years. |
By this action of the new board, no1
member who delivers his tobacco to J
the association in 1925 need have any
fear that deduction will be made from
payments to him from next season's
crop to meet claims which the asso
ciation has against him for failure to
deliver tobacco of other crops.

IS YOCNGSVILLE DEAD OB NOT?
-In last week's Times the people of
Youngsvllle said their little town
was not dead. If it is not dead it did
not do everything that has been done
alone. The $40,000 school building
was not built by Youngsvllle people
Elone, but by the country people also.
Youngsvllle might have had a B. Y.
P. U. before Franklinton, Oak Grove,
Harris Chapel, or Flat Rock, but they
did not organize the Harris Chapel
B. Y. P. U. Pierce's B. Y. P. U. gave
a demonstration program at Harris
Chapel about eight years ago and the
people organized ,a B. Y. P. U. but it
soon died because there were not
enough young people to keep it going.
About two years ago Rolesville B. Y.
P. U. organized Harris Chapel B. Y.
P. U. and since tben Harris Chapel
has had a wide-a-wake union. It had
an A-l B. Y. P. U. for the past year
and won an A-l pennant.
Youngsville still has a B. Y. P. U.
but like Harris Chapel it has been re
organized. Last fall J. D. Morris,
then president of Harris Chapel Un
ion, organized the Youngsvllle B. Y.
P. U. After they were organized
Franklinton gave them a program.
(The above item was hahded us by
a resident of Youngsvllle community,
who felt a little hurt by his commu
nity not having been included in the I
Youngsvllle wrile-up last week. Wc
know that Youngsvllle appreciates
the co-operation of its entire commu
nity, therefore we are giving space to
the article, that they may be included

THE COMING INDUSTRIAL SEC
For many years, probably due to^j
prejudice that held over from Civil
War days, the people of the North
have regarded the South as a part of
the United States where they grew i
some tobacco, some cotton and the
white people Indulged in abusing the
negroes. Few have recognised that I
the territory covered by the states |
called the South Is, as a whole, the
richest in general resources of any j
section of the Union. Today the!
South could be cut off from the re-1
mainder of the world by a great wall'
and still its people could live in lux
ury and ease trofa the development
of their own resources.
Today the people of the whole na-1
tion are awakening to the truth. Dur- j
ing the past several years the South
has impressed itself on the industrial
world. Because of labor difficulties,
some years ago certain manufacturing
concerns in the New England States
turned their attention to the South,
there they found conditions favorable
to carryiqg on their manufacturing
enterprises without the consent of un
ions, dominated largely by foreigners.
The Southern States are proud of
the fact that the great mass of the
population is American. The people
as yet have been unaffected by the
killing germ of Socialism and Com
munism. Moreover, noting what these
germs have done to certain Northern
states, any attempt to transplant tbem
to the South will meet with a proper
and violent opposition. While West
Virginia is not always counted as a
part of the South, yet here the move
to inject Socialism and Communism
through the United Mine Workers has
met with a proper rebuke. Today
West Virginia is the salvation of the
nation because its mines are permit
ted to operate and supply coal to the
The South la developing some of
the greatest hydro-electric power
plants in the world. Power will soon
be cheap throughout these tates.
Transportation facilities, both rail
and water, are excellent. As reliable
American help, cheap power and good
transportation are the three essentials
to Industrial activities, and the South
is able to present itself as possessing
all of these, naturally industrial
growth will result.
The New York Commercial has
great confidence In that section of the
country because it is yet so thorough
ly American, and because its people
?till believe In this country and our
form of government. The New York
Commercial has done considerable
personal Investigating of the truth
about the South. It has yet to find
an instance where the facts have been
overstated save here and there where
some Individual has become too opti
