Harve.sting of Acreage Will Fol
low Peach Season in Keeping
Many Employed
Tobacco men are well pleased with
the outlook for a crop and for good
prices this season. Harvesting is un
der way, with the leaf in good shape,
and a fairly large acreage. With a
hopeful crop of good quality the far
mers are employing hands to carry on
the harvest and stimulating further
the employment situation, which has
been much livened up by the good
peach crop and the good prices.
The peach harvest is nearing a, and as the end approaches the
demand improves as Georgia has fin
ished and the North has very little
to offer. This has had the effect of
sending to North Carolina an unpre
cedented lot of trucks looking for
peahes. The truck trade has had a se
rious effect on the railroad traffic,
so much so that the refrigerator cars
are seeing much of their business tak
en from under their noses. That in
turn has had an effect on the ice de
More or less talk is heard of new
orchards again in this section, but
what will come out of it is specula
tive. Old timers remember that one
good crop does not pay for developing
an orchard, and they caution against
any hurry to get a foot in the tar
barrel. However, up the Candor way
many young trees are coming on, and
it is evident that peach growing will
be an industry in the Sandhills for
many a day, even if in modified form.
The corn crop over the surround
ing territory is reported good. Canta
loupes and watermelons did not make
the growers rich this summer. Eggs
are scarce for this season. Wheat has
made a right fair crop. Fall feed
crops are promising. The man with a
garden is finding something to eat
nearer home than the grocery. Can

First Million of New Carolina
Stamps Now Being Distributed
Carolinas, Inc., Opens Campaign
to Tell the World About
Opportunities Here
Delivery of the first order of 1,-
000,000 Carolina Crusade stamps, de
picting hLstoric and scenic spots, as
well as agricultviral and industrial op
portunities in North and South Car
olina has been made to The Caro
linas, Inc. and distribution is now un
der way. The Carolinas. Inc., a non-
p-ofit, nonpolitical group of out
standing citizens of the two states,
was recently organized to attract in
creased tourist travel, home-seekers
and industrialists through an inten
sive program to adequately portray
scenic and climatic advantages and
the points of interest and natural re
sources of the Carolinas.
While the stamps will in themsel-
ves provide valuable advertising for
the Carolinas when attached to sta
tionery, envelopes, packages, ct cet
era, they are the means to an end
of financing the broad program of
advertising which will be modelled
along the lines of the New Fngland
Council, Florida and Californians,
Inc. Publication of authentic and ac
curate data in various forms of liter
ature, national magazines, metropoli
tan newspapers, radio and other ad
vertising rae-.ii'i w;’! be financed by
the sale of stamps;.
The first series of stamps is a sheet
of 25 different svbject.?, printed in
one color with a wood type effect,
with four colors to tne sheet. Each
stamp carries th^* words "See the
Carolinas” the ’op. They will
be distributed by worthwhile chari
table, benevolent, fraternal and civic
organizations and will sell for one
cent each. It is planned to issue a
new series of 25 stamp.s '’ach month
and a total distribution of 40,000,000
within two years is the minimum goal
of the organization.

Two Billion Gallons of Gasoline
.Motorists of North Carolina Have Used That Much—and More
—in Last N'ine and One-Half Years, and Paid State
Over $110,000,000 Tax On It.
Citizens of North Carolina have
consumed nearly two and one-fourth
billions of gallons of gasoline, on
which they paid the State a gallon-
age tax of more than 110 millions of
dollars in the last nine and one-half
years, according to figures compiled
in the office of L. J. Sears, in charge
of this tax collection during practical
ly all of that period.
Figures show that in the nine and
one-half years 2,238,651,986 gallons
of gasoline have been consumed in
North Carolina, subject to slight cor
rection due to overlapping of dif
ferent rates on the gallon, when new
rates would become effective, and
that the tax on that gasoline has
been collected to the amount of
$110,255,.568 during that period.
During the eight years and nine
months in which Sears has been col
lecting the gasoline tax, the amount
has totaled $106,320,124, and of that
amount he has collected $106,092,794,
or collections have been 99.78 per
cent of the amount assessed, the loss
.so far being .22 of one per cent, and
Sears believes he will finally get half
of that balance. Some of it is now
tied up in closed banks, while there
are a few accounts that arc delin
The tabulation shows that the high
peak in gasoline consumption was
re.ached in 1929, in which year tax
was paid on 270,938,321 gallons. Since
then there has been a decrease,
I amounting to 2.85 per cent for 1930,
2.95 per cent for 1931 and 7.91 per
cent for 1932, while 1933 showed a
slight upward turn,' showing an in
crease of 1.16 per cent over the pre
vious year.
Increase This Vear
During the first six months of
this calendar year, to June 30, the has been 15 per cent over
the first six months of last year. The during the next six months
over the same period in 1933 is not
expected to maintain the same per
centage, since the New Deal was op
erating the half of last year.
However, even a fair increase will this year to take its place close
alongside 1929 in the consumption the
last six months was 125,476.103 gal
lons, a gain of 16.338,917 gallons over
the 109,137,186 gallons on which tax
was paid in the first half of 1933.
The more thaiT 125 millions of gal
lons consumed the six monthJi
of this year give that the
full year's consumption will reach the
263 millions of gallons consumed in
1930, and may even come close to the
nearly 271 million.s consumed in 1929.
The last half is always far ahead
of the first half, due to the increased
use of trucks for marketing products
and inclusion of the tourist and va
cation con.sumption in the last six
In only one year, 1932, is there
shown a decrease in the amount of
, money collected on the gasoline tax,
due to the gradual increase in the
rate from three cents up to April,
1925, four cents from then until June,
1929 five cents until May, 1931, and
I six cents since that lime. The slight-
; ly more than six millions collected
‘ in 1925 had grown almost to 15 mil-
j lions in 1933.

Scores of suggestions for stamp
subjects have been received at head
quarters of The Carolinas, Inc., and
in the initial orders now being filled
are many requests from stamp collec
tors and from native Carolinians
throughout the nation.
A demand that Robeson county col
lect its back taxes before increasing
its tax rate this year was made upon
the county commissioners of the
county Monday by E. J. Britt of Lum-
berton, farmer, attorney and former
county attorney.
Mr. Britt declared he has several
clients who have said they will not
pay the increased levy the commis- ■
sioners have made this year of 33 1-3
per cent, from 60 to 80 cents on the
$100, with such a large amount of |
back taxes uncollected until they have ,
been told to do so by the courts. He |
stated he had been instructed to en-j
