TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1948
: Spokesman oi Agriculture, the Farm Bureau
i ' With an address by Commissioner of Agriculture D. S. Colt-I-
ne, the Carteret county farm bureau membership drive will be
. launched Wednesday night at the court house.
Goal for this year's drive, 550 members, means that approxi
mately one-fourth of the country's entire population will be affil
: iated with the state and national farm bureau organization.
'22 Since its formation in 1936 the North Carolina Farm bureau
fys been "out in front" in every forward looking movement un
Strtaken to help the farmer. The voice of the Tar Heel organ
isation has been and continues to be heard in every matter
'?. Concerning the farmer.
Jn its 2-year record of service to farmers through sound,
active, even militant leadership, the North Carolina Farm bureau
has helped every resident of the state.
Among Ihe foresighled programs sponsored and developed
by the North Carolina Farm bureau are the Flue-Cured Tobacco
Cooperative Stabilization corporation and Tobacco Associates,
incorporated. The former was originated by Farm Bureau lead
ers to guarantee the flue-cured farmer stable prices for his prod
uct The wisdom of setting up such a program is proved by this
fact: nearly 300,000 tobacco growers have joined the corporation
at a membership of $5 each and benefited from its floor price
guarantee since 1946.
Tobacco Associates, incorporated, formed in 1947 to protect
and increase the export market of flue-cured tobacco, has already
accomplished much toward its goal. It has succeeded in pro
moting the sale of millions of pounds of flue-cured and Burley
North Carolina Farm bureau welcomes the cooperation of
other progressive minded groups and individuals, such as was
given in development of Stabilization and Tobbacco associates.
North Carolina Farm bureau is determined to continue its pace
setting stride in matters that effect the rarmer. "All-out organ
ization" is a powerful tool that more than 70,000 of North Caro
lina's farmers have added to their agricultural arsenal compara
tively recently. It is a tool that grows in effectiveness as the
number of farmers guiding Its path increase. This tool will be
' (Q familiar asset to many thousand additional Tar Heel farmers
in the years to come.
More than 1,276,000 farm families in 45 states make up the
American Farm bureau one of the largest and most influential
"family groups" anywhere.
Starting with the small community, the farm bureau is or
ganized by leading farmers. The community unit is represented
by its ablest members in the county farm bureau. In turn, the
counties send their most progressive members to state farm bu
reau conventions as voting delegates.
The voting delegates, jnsipred by the wishes of "the folks
-back home" and fully aware of farm problems confronting their
neighbors and themselves, set the policies of the state group.
2'hese delegates also impress state farm bureau leaders with the
estiments of those on the community aaitounty1iffVjef'wio pfoct
ed them. " AiilVfT 'iV:
) . Taking their cue from the voting delegates, state farm bu
rl treau leaders, Including members of the various commodity com
(( tnittees, exchange views and Information with similar represen-
ftives from farm bureaus in other states.
Four times each year the American Farm bureau board of
1 directors and the commodity committees meet formally to em-
ace in me general larm oureau program the latest directives from
le farm families who are "Farm Bureau." At the same time.
prosentatives from the various state groups are brought up to
late on recent developments n i Washington and elsewhere,
wherever agricultural matters are under consideration.
Democratic in every phase of its organization, Farm Bureau
is truly the "spokesman of American agriculture." Side by side,
the membership and leadership f the organization Will show over
and over again that "all-out organization" of farmers means
PROGRESS for rural and city folks alike.

The grand story on "Miss Lottie" Sanders, reprinted from the
Christian Advocate in Tuesday's paper, was really written by
Miss Amy Muse, Beaufort, who was at one time editor of The
Beaufort News and Is well-known for her literary accomplish

of the department executive under which Miss Lottie's story
came. We didn't think a "foreigner" could write as .delightful a
