our confidence and su;>'">ort."
In speaking of the tremendous
changes which have been brougnt
about during the last two years,
Mr. Phillips said:
"Can we possibly place our
selves again, even in imagination,
as we were in October, 1932? The
price of tobacco would not pay
the expense of stripping anij
hauling to market, corn was 20
per bushels, taxes went unpaid,
ami children went without neces: - -
ary cl athing and even medical
rt'ention. The tobacco mark M
today is the highest in history,
and the farmers of Stokes ma"
now look confidently into the
future and know that their hopes
have been fulfilled."
Tom Frank Webster
Late Of Reynolds
Webster's Warehouse at
Madison with Tom Frank Wob
f'ter leading the sales, had mora
tobacco yesterday than on the
opening day. Average running
around 35. Ross Meadows, of
Stokes is there, too, and hunched
for the high dollar. When Walt
King, of Danbury, got 67, Tom
Frank was stepping on the gas.
He was a Reynolds star buyer
for 20 years, and is super-posted
on the game. He simply don't
let it get by till the bidding i 3 all
spent, and then that's sure to be
all that's in it.
When tobacco brings more
money than now, Webster's will
be paying it first -sure, don't

Attorney Folger, the eldest son
of former State Senator, John H.
Folger, prominent Surry attorney,
is an outstanding young lawyer
and an attractive speaker. Ho
declares that he is making the
race for the State Senate without
obligating himself by campaign
promises. He is however, vitally
interested in economy and the
greatest efficiency in our school
system, following in the foot
stops of his eloquent father, who
has championed the cause of
rural education since he first
went to the legislature in 1927.

Hints for Homemakers
By Jane Rogers
SOME believe that any one who
can boll water can cook corn on
thr> nob. How many a tender ear
of corn has been allowed to toughen
through long keeping or faulty
cooking co one will ever know. In
the first place, fresh corn will not
remain Succulent long after It la
pulled from the stalk. If you can
get It in the pot the evening of the
morning It was picked so much the
better. Straight from the stalk to
the pot Is a delight that only home
gardeners can enjoy.
Try this method next ttma you
have corn on the cob. Place the
ears In a large pot of boiling water
to which has been added a table
spoon of granulated sugar. Young
corn will cook perfectly In Ave
minutes. More mature corn re
quires from eight to ten m'.nutos.
Do not salt tho water as salt has a
tendency to toughea corn. Si.gar
brings out its natural sweetue.ia.
If desired, salt the corn at the
