The opening of the Tobacco Ware
house for receiving tobacco for the
members of the Tobacco Growers' Co
operative Marketing Association on
Tuesday was attended by-a-soost pleas
ing succesa. The system of handling,
? ?hich Is Entirely new to onr pjeople,
*a8 commented on by all in the most
favorable manner both for its orderly,
clean and business-like, an 1 economi
cal method and the advances brought
the broad smile of satisfaction to the
facts of all those who had tobacco on
the first delivery.
There was practically twenty-four
thousand pounds on the floor and af
ter the beginning everything moved
along nicely and with no hitch.
Among the most enthused farmers
present .we noted Mr. Milton Strick
land, who had 678 pounds of first
primings on the floor that he had stat
cd he would sell for $75.00 on which
hv received the first advance of $80.21.
Mr. Strickland says he is satisfied if
h doesn't ever get another cent. Mr.
> nibo Hagwood had divisions of two
? ps on sale that their respective
t-s had been sold on the open mar
k- ? ior averages of 11 and 14 cents.
.V. t-Tagwood received first advances
o: 7 - :ul S% cents respectively, and
received an additional loan at the
liiiik of the same amount, making his
receipts that day loathe tobacco 14
ai d 17 cer.ts or three dents a pound
n'ure than his tenants got for same.
Another striking comparison was that
t'l Mr. A. W. Wilson, whom we un
it rstood had regretted signing the Co
o;- contract. He divided a load with
s. tenant who was uot a member, the
itnani felling on the open market
"S:.d Mr. Wilson delivering to the Co
ol s. In the calculations for the
t:.me number oi pounds Mr. Wilson
received an advance of six dollars
liiore than his tenant sold for. Mr.
Wilson is now proud of his member
ship. Another ease was that of Mr.
J. II. King, of near Red Bud, who said
he would have gladly sold his load
lor sixty dollars. He received an ad
vance of fifty three dollars and some
These cases are recited only to give
cur readers a more clear insight to
the general trend of the feeling exist
ing on the market, and a large num
be r were heard to say they were look
ir.g for a dissatisfied farmer but could
tot find one. It is true there was
more general satisfaction in plain
view than we have ever seen at an
i [.ening before. It thoroughly knock
ed into a cocked hat the many reports
that a farmer could not receive advan
ces enough to pay lor stripping their
With so much talk, both pro and
con. it was only natural that a large
crowd was present. When the grad
ing began the house was actually full
of folks and tobacco and it was diffi
cult to move the baskets about. How
ever everything moved along nicely
and with the greatest precision and
Mr. S. J. Parham, who la conceded
to be one of the best judges of tobacco
in the State, did well his part as
grader, and received compliments
from both farmers and old tobacco
? The other members of the force, and
who deserve much credit Tor the or
derly handling of the tobacco, are Mr.
G. C. Harris, Manager; Mr. H. E.
Might, and Mr. B. N. Williamson,
?onkkeepers. Mr. C. C. Byrne and
Mr. ? . ? . 8outhall.
One of the most popular features of
the system for Its fairness Is the fact
that when the tobacco Is being graded
there Is no name attached and the
grading Is done with the grader hav
ing no knowledge of the ownership.
This feautre is especially pleasing to
the farmers who have seen so much
tchacco sold In which the owner gov
erned the price because of his popu

that if the allied land forces are not
sufficient to check a nationalist attack

There is an Increased feeling of so

a result of Great Britain's energetic
measures. The highest military au

commit the folly of opposing such
overwhelming forces. The allied com

the presidency of Brigadier General
Sir Charles' Harrington to discuss
measures for defense of the capital
and the straits.
They are expected to bring about
the complete unity of the French and
Italian forces. It is now ascertained
that only 20,000 Greek soldiers remain
under arms out of the army of 250.

Raleigh, Sept. 18. ? Definite annonn
cement that General John J. Persh
ing, commander of the American Ex
pedltlonary Forces during" the world
war will attend the North Carolina
State Fair on Wednesday,. October 18,
was made yesterday by Mrs. Edith
Vanderbllt, president ot tha.?alr.
The announcement, which was oon
talned In a telegram from Mrs. Van
derbllt to Col. Albert L. Cox, of Hal
elgh, served to stimulate plans for
making Wednesday "Military Day" at
the Fair and It is now expected that
Wednesday will overshadow Thursday
which Is usually the "Big Day" at the
Fair. In order to do honor to Amerl
ca's greatest war hero who will make
his first visit to the State Capitol on
the occasion of the Fair, posts of the
American Legion throughout the Stat*
will be asked to send representative*
to the Fair and units of the State's ga
tlonal guard and a detachment at
troops from Camp Bragg are also ex
pected to be on hand.
Arrangements for "Military Day"
are In the hands of Colonel Cox and
details have not yet been worked out.
It la probable, however, that the pro
gram will include a speech by the
General in the forenoon and some so
cial function In his honor in the even
While the visit of General Pershing
will cause attention to be concentrat
ed on Wednesday, special plans ar?
being made for each of the other days
of the Fair. Tuesday will be "Breed
era' Day." All of the livestock ex
hibits will be on display and judging
will begin in all department on Tuea
day. Breeders from other states as
well as North Carolina will be on
hand to see the Battle of the Breeds.
. Following "Military Day" on Wed
nesday, "College and Football Day"
will be observed on Thursday. The
annual gridiron classic between the
University of North Carolina and the
North Carolina State College always
j attracts thousands of visitors to Ral
eigh, all of whom want to take in the
Fair in the morning and the evening.
? Right of way will be given the foot

ial arrangements will be made to take
care of the collegians before and af
ter the game.
"Mothers', Childrens' and Flower

and every visitor to the grounds will

Statistically considered, the price of
cotton is too low, at least in the minds
of the cotton growers. Senator Smith
of South Carolina points out that the
normal carryover and the present con
dltion of the growing crop Indicate a
yield far below the world's demand for
American cotton, and that the total
supply in relation to demand should
justify prices much higher than those
now prevailing . The Senator Is there
fore convinced that there Is some sin
ister Influence at work to keep prlcee
down, and he has succeeded in having
a resolution" put through the Seaate
calling for an investigation of all mat
ters pertaining to the subject ol sap

there is. Thus enter the factors of fl

part had plenty to eat. There existed
there both supply and demand but

remedy will not be found in placing
further restrictions on the cotton ex

SIPT. E. L. BEST HAKES
A 8TB0XG FLEA FOB A CENTRAL
HIGH iK'HOOL FOB SANDY
CREEK AND fiOLD MINE
Superintendent E. L. Beat gave us
tb? following Information on the Cen
terrllle meeting which wag held Sat
urday, Sept. the 16th. The object of
the meeting was to discuss plans for
establishing a fcentral high school in
Gold Mine and Sandy Creek Town
ships. The meeting was opened with
prayer by the Rev. George May. The
object of the meetiag having been
stated Sapt. Best described the pres
ent school situation in the two town
ships, the possibilities of a Standard
Mgh school, the advaatages of the
same and how it might be secured.
It was shown hat no school in the
two townships could offer a?y high
school instruction that would be re
cognized by the state as high school
work because not one of the schools
h?l the equipment, number of teach
eis or number of children necessary
1 1 meet the requirements. However,
ay all of the high school children at
tending one school, a standard state
high school could be established for
these two townships, every boy and
girl in this district would be in walk
ing or riding distance. The following
plan was suggested: , The present
schools In the townships are not to
be lnterfecred with but run as elemen
tary schools. A central high school
to be established where ft would meet
the convenience of most of the child
? ren in the district: That an election
be held for a 30 cent maintenance tax
and a 20 cent building tax. The 20
cent tax to be used for the building of
the high school which will consist of
about 12 rooms. The 30 cent tax
will be used to run the high school
not less than eight months and the
elementary schools not less than 7
and one half. If this election should
be carried all local tax in the various
school districts the two townships
[would thereby be repealed. There
I fore for those djstricts that now have
a local tax it' would simply mean
that they would only pay 20,_ cents
more than they have been paying.
The children in the two townships
i would attend the elementary schools
| until they finished the seventh grade
and then would attend the central
high school. The people present vot
ed to ask the commissioners to call
the election and the petition is expect
! ed to be ready by the first Monday in
October. The FRANKLIN' TIMES is
| very much interested in this scheme
a-nd wants to congratulate the people
,of Sandy Creek and Gold Mine on this
1 progressive movement. Your boys
and girls deserve all the school advan
J tages you can give titein. You have
our best wishes in your undertaking.
