With the goal for season’s soles set

f.nd with a corps of trained ware
L-'U-ht • . 'i engaged to insure the at

tobacco market is scheduled to open
Tuesday. September 2nd.
"The phenomenally 1 nv prices paid
on the opening of the Georgia mar

i arter local planters,” said an ex
pert tobaccionist discussing the situ
ation this week. ”1 have been ir. the
business twenty-five years and I have
never known it to fail that, when the
Georgia markets pay low prices the
weed brings unusually high figures in
Carolina, and vice-versa. Last year,”
he continued,, “the Georgia ware
houses opened the season with sensa
tional prices while the Carolina mar
kets started the season with a dis
heartening slump. Several years back,
the case was reversed and I am quite
confident that it will be so this year."

Man Falls Under
Train — His Hand Is
Severed at the Wrist
Manuel Berois, 18, of Havana, Cuba,
had his right hand severed at the
wrist when he slipped and fell while
trying to board a northbound freight
train near the Frinklin Street crossing
in Enfield last week.
According to the account given by
Berois and his companion Pedriom
Caledron, also from Cuba, the youths
had been working in Charleston, S.
C., where they had recently lost their
jobs, and were enroute to Norfolk to ,
ship on a transatlantic merchant ves- j
sel. They reached Ertfield by the ^
“hitchhike” method late Wednesday
evening and were sleeping near the
chair factory when an approaching
freight train awakened them. Trying
to board the train, Berois missed h'13
footing in the darkness and was
thrown along the rails, his right hancl
