(8. D. Frleeell)
More than fifty-seven million pounds
of tobacco have been received by the
Tobacco Growers Cooperative Associa
tion during; the present season, ac
cording to the fall returns of deliveries
which followed the closing of the co
operative markets for the holidays.
Total deliveries to the association
from the 8outh Carolina belt exceeded
26,600,000 pounds, an amount of to
bacco which is practically double the
1024 deliveries of tobacco co-ops of
that area.
In the dark fired tobacco district
of Virginia a steady sign-up Is pro
gressing without any Intensive cam
paigning for new members. More than
a million pounds of the dark weed
were signed up during December tor
the new association which the growers
plan to operate from 1927 to 1931.
Following mass meetings in every
important tobacco county of the South
Carolina belt, the Sign-up of the new
contract began this week in a majority
of the 168 local units of the associa
tion. Results of the first day's cam
paign have not yet been reported to
the association's headquarters, but
the new contract is being discussed
in every tobacco town and cross-road,
store in the South Carolina belt and
there Is no doubt that the campaigns
for membership in the new and larger
association, by which the growers are
planning to protect their Industry for
another five years, will be off to a
good start by the early days of 1928.
The association warehouses which
will open after the holidays are to
begin receiving tobacco on Monday
January 4th, 1928.
The association will close down all
of its warehouses in Eastern North
Carolina except Rocky Mount, Golds -
boro, Washington and Wendell.
Only eight of th*.*M. bright belt
receiving points will shut down after
the holidays. Receipts from the old
bright belt growers exceeded a mil
lion pounds a day during the last de
livery days of 1926.
The association Is continuing Its
liberal <6 per cent cash advance In
1926 and large deliveries are looked
for durliqr the remainder of this sea

The New Year, with all Its real and imagi
nary problems, is upon as. What we do in the
nett twelve months depends to some extent upon
our individual initiative, but with the utmost
of individual enterprise, nothing of lasting value
is going to be accomplished unless a spirit of
oo-operation prevails.
Here in Louisbuxg, it will be necessary, if
sucoass is written across 1999, for every citizen
to join in one long, steady pall, unhampered by
petty jealousies. The work te be done is enough
to occupy the mind and utihfee the energy of
everyone, without the blighting effect of bicker
ing or qnibhHng over small things.
Co-operative effort is t% only thing that
will make a better commuzsmy. Oo-operation
means working together for the oommon
good and not permitting p^sonal ambitions
For proftw tatter,. T
Results will come only when every citizen
catches the spirit of oommfnity betterment.
This does not mean that business men or any
jther class alone can pnll us otft into larger fields.
Overcoming the obstacles that 1S?6 is
bound to offer and turning them to our own
good will be possible only Whth a united pull.
So it's up to every loyal citisaa to pulj his level
