CIGARETTES TO GO UN RA
TIONED The shortage of cigarettes ex

reflects the bad distribution due to
war time conditions and the fact
that the arm.d forces are now

total production, but no rationing
of them is contemplated, the Office
of Price Administration states. The
War Food Administration reports
that the number of cigarettes be
ing manufactured for civilian and
soldier consumption is the great
est in the history of the tobacco in
dustry. Only a negligible amount
of tax-free cigarettes ia sent abroad
for consumption other than by our
armed forces. Black market ope
rations and hoarding are also be

Old Hickory 30th Division Again Makes
Outstanding Record In Another War
LAND BOOM PERILED RURAL
By Claude R. Wickard,
Secretary of Agriculture
History is threatening to repeat
PFC. GLENN C. ROGERS, son
of Charlie R. Rogers, of Fines
Creek, is now serving with the
armed forces in Southern Fiance.
He was inducted in the service on
December !, 1042, and took his
basic training at Camp Claiborne,
La. From the latter he was trans
feired to Camp Howze, Tex., and
from there to a port of embarka
tion. Ut fore entering the service he
was employed in an automobile
body factory in Detroit, Mich.,
when he had resided for the past
itself in the farm land market.
Another farm land "boom," is
closely paralleling the one that
ended so disastrously after the last
war, is building up in this country.
Both the price of farm land and
the number of farm sales in many
areas have been rising at about the
sume rate as in the last war. If
this trend continues, Rural Ameri
ca had better watch out.
One encouraging sign is that
actual hind prices haven't yet
reached the high level of 1919-20.
But still we can't say now how
much higher these prices are like
ly to go because, in the World War
I period, the high point in the land
market was not reached until more
than a year after the fighting stop-
The Old Hickory 30th Division,
of which Company H. National
Guard unit from Waynesville is a
part, has covered itself with glory
in Europe, according to reports
from various sources overseas.
The Division captured the fam
ous Belgium Fort Eben Emael on
Sept. 10 and two days later became
the first allied unit to enter Hol
land. By September 20, forward ele
ments of the Division were across
German frontier, dug in close to the
Siegfried line and ready to attack.
The ;50th Division was in training

Division's Commander, Maj. Gen.
L. S. Hobbs, was also in command

It would be sad indeed if the
Nation should witness another
seige of farm land foreclosures,
bankruptcies, and forced sales such
as hundreds of thousands of rural
families experienced after the bot
tom fell out of the land bomb that
accompanied the World War 1 per
iod. For 13 hazardous years after
1920, land prices were on the down
hill trail. And that statistical fact
doesn't begin to tell the full story
of human trugedy and misiry. Be
cause when a wave of bankruptcies
hits a community, everybody suf
ferslender and borrower, busi
ness and professional people alike.
It will be particularly unfair for
returning veterans, who want to
buy land, if they have to compete
in an inflated land market. For
them, or farmers either for that
matter, to go heavily in debt on
land prices bid up far beyond long
time earning capacity is an invi
tation to disaster.
So my advice is: Don't buy land
at inflated prices. Put your war
time income into sound invest
ments, such as war bonds, so that
you can benefit f rora that money in
the years ahead.

in favorable comparison with that of the average quality of other sections This average uniformity of merits
permits its classification in fewer GRADES with the result each CROP requires less basket floor space. (Fre

facts account for Tennessee markets eagerly soliciting the patronage of the N. C. grower.
