Decentralization of Manufacturing Erings Markets for
Products Closer to the Farm—Gives Employment
and Better Standards of Living to
By T. R. PRESTON
President, American Bankers Association
NO class of people has been more diligent in trying so under
stand the agricultural problem than the bankers of this
country. The agricultural problem is a real problem and de
mands the best thought of everyone. , This
L .. . .... country cannot continue along happy lines
8 with only sections of the country prosperous.'
Prosperity must be passed around if any
body is long to enjoy it. This question can
not be solved by the farmers alone, but the
majority opinion is that there is no legisla
tive remedy for agriculture. It is an eco
nomic question pure and simple and must be
worked out accordingly.
A few years ago it was contended that
agriculture did not have sufficient credit
facilities. That proposition was often made
a political question. Ido not presume there
are many who wiil question the fact that
agriculture now has ample credit facilities.
Mixing Farms and Factories
It is a fact that no community and no
t. R..PR.ESTON state has ever become great purely from
agriculture. It is not to the interest of New York and other
great centers to see the small communities and the agricultural
sections losing their wealth and importance. In the end it will
react upon them to their disadvantage.
There seems to me a real remedy for
these small communities and also for
agriculture. This remedy, which i-3
the mixing of industry with agricul
ture, is now being applied in many lo
calities with satisfactory results.
Industry and agriculture are better
balanced in Ohio, North Carolina and
Pennsylvania than in any other states
of the Union, and in these states
there is no serious agricultural prob
lem and we hear little complaint from
the farmers. This mixing of industry
Mixing Industry With Agriculture Means Prosperity for Rural Districts
and agriculture is called by some de
centralization of industry.
I would not suggest that manufac
turing institutions move from tho
cities to the small villages, but 1 do
think it would be better for this coun
try for future industries to be placed
in these small villages rather than
to be further congested in the great
centers. This would in part also be
a solution of our labor problem. The
bringing of industries to small vil
lages increases the market for agri
cultural products, gives employment
to surplus la ! ior. elevates the stand
ards of living, increases public reve
nue, reduces taxes and vastly increases
Two Striking Examples
I believe 1 can give you two strik
ACID STOMACH !
v — !
Thin, pale people—the despondem
sort, who never have an appetite, an;,
complain of headaches, indigestion, diz- i
ziness, biliousness, usually have too (
to-.u-h acid in their stomach. And unless j
they displace it, any food they eat turn-;
into sour bile and foul gases, which i
poison their system.
Pape's Diapepsin dissolves that poi- j
sonous acid, sweetens the stomach and;
digests your meals. Many thousands of
peopl e have brought ha'dc the appetite
of til eir youth and gained weight simply j
hv chewing one of the pleasant tablets !
of Pape’s Diapensin after meals.
It does what it promises. That's the '
reason 5 million packages are used a j
year—ask vour nearest t ibr it !

ing examples from my own state to
prove this proposition, and I mention
these because 1 am more familiar
with conditions there than elsewhere.
Twelve years ago Kingsport, Ten
nessee, had a population of about one
thousand. Great industries like a
large camera company, a big cement
plant and a number of other indus
tries were located there partly through
the influence of an outstanding New
York business man. In a little more
than twelve years these have broughi
the population of that city up to
seventeen thousand. Just a few miles
away, at Elizabethton, they are build
ing a great rayon plant, the first unit
to cost $5,000,000. The population of
that town is now two thousand, but
it is estimated that this will be multi
! plied by five in less than two years
It is stated that the total investment
in manufacturing industry in that com
munity within a period of five years
J will probably reach $50,000,000.
The balancing of industry and agri
’ culture will solve most of our so-called
! agricultural problems and we will not
need such political measures as will in
■ my opinion, do harm if enacted to the
I very class they pretend to benefit.
GULF ITEMS •
The Easter Star order of Goldstar,
invited the Masons and their wives
to Goldston Friday night to a sup
per and entertainment. Those who
attended from here were as follows:
Dr. and Mrs. Palmer, Mr. and Mrs.
J. R. Moore, Mr. and Mrs. D. E.
Murchison, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. John
son and B. A. Asborne. All reported
a good time and partook so much ot
the bountiful feast we are afraid
they won’t be able to go again soon.
Several officers and members of
BYPU of Bethany Baptist church

at Siler City Baptist church Sunday

j SHOWING OFF THE NEW FORD
| The editor had the privilege of
i accompanying Mr. J. C. Weeks in his
now Fo.d on quite a round Thursday
afternoon. The long-looked for
sample arrived Wednesday, and Mr.
Weeks was btsv the balance of the
weei: demonstrating it here and at
other points in the county.
The first stop was at Coal Glenn,
where Mr. Howard Butier and num
ber of employees of the mine and
Mr. Matthews manager of the store
looked it over. And while the Ford
held the attention largely, the Re
cord man did not altogether neglect
the business of getting subscribers.
Four or five new names were put
on here, and at the Carolina Fire
proofing Company, the tile and brick
plant, the same, processes were gone
through. Gulf also saw the new car,
as did Goldston and Bear Creek.
The sample is a- Tudor sedan, and
is a beauty. It goes like forty and
can turn in an ordinary road.
Mr.. David Weeks, a brother oi
the Fdird man, who had come in the
day before from New Jersey, where
he has been employed by the Stan
dard Oil Co., also was a member so
the exploring party.
Mr. Weeks hopes to begin his de
liveries next month and to gradu
ally increase them during the year.
D. E. OVERBY SUCCEEDS

Mr. H. L. Longnecker, who has so
ably managed the Carolina Fireproof
Brick and Tile plant at Gulf, has
been promoted to the superinten
dency of all the business of the
Hood Brick Company, and has his
headquartres at Charlotte. He is
succeeded as superintendent of the
Gulf plant by Mr. D. E. Overby,
who has been in charge of the plant
at Monroe. Mr. Overby came a
week ago, and will move his family
to the plant as soon as Mr. Long
