LIKKS KIWANIS SPIRIT
Did you ever attend a Kiwtnis
meeting? II not, you have missed
half of your life. Now, I have be
longed to everything that ever was
started in Williamston but the Ki
wanis and the Woman's Clubs. 1
have never had a chance to visit the
Woman's Club, but somehow I feel
like if the rules could be broken, I
would like to get into this club, and
I think I'll take a chance of being
black-balled at the Kiwanis Club, for
it's an organization that every citizen
should feel proud of, and when they 1
get down behind a project, they nev
er turn loose. The only thing they
lack is the mora! support of the cit-j
Now, I have been invited around
there several times as a dinner guest,
and all the tobacco boys in town were
invited arotond as (snner
guests, and what a dinner they do
serve. One good-looking girl (and
there were plenty of them there),
knowing the condition of my teeth and
my fondness for easy-chewing parts
of a chicken, brought eight livers and
seven gizzards, besides all the neces
sary vegetables, ice team, ice cream,
and cake. 1 ate so much that when
called on to make a talk, 1 couldn't
do so, but the other tobacco boys all
gave them good talks, as well as the
different members of the club.
Now, no on one in Williamston has
this tqbacco market more at
than the writer, and I wish you all
could have heard these short talks
made by some of your best citizens,
and if carried out—especialy the sug
gestions made by Mr. Elbert Peel
somebody will help hard
worked old warehousemen pull some
tobacco to Williamston the coming
season. Here's hoping we will have
the hearty cooperation of every man,
woman, and child in W illiamston for
a larger and better market. We have
the warehousemen and the best set
of buyers this season we have ever
had. Put your shoulders to the wheel
We are with you.

I The Greenville tobacco market dur

creased year alter year by leaps and
boui|ds, and, of ciourse, the first
thought that comes to the reaider is
There are ''Aiaify reasons:
One of the basic and undoubtedly the
I best answer'is the Tobacco Board of
(Trade of Greenville.
I Here is an organization that ia.
| without a doubt, one of the best or
ganizations of its kind in the entire
*area n which tobaco is grown, func
tioning as it does like all well bal
anced organizations do that generate
'progress and success, ami rgauization

ipirit of team work, and practices it
I year in and year out, season after sea
i son, vision and forethought linked
with the determination to make Green
villi- the greatest tobacco market, as
is clearly shown, answered the ques
tion to the fullest extent of the *erni.
To go niorc into details of proo: t we
viiall try to present a fact picture of
this splendid organization and by a
glance at flic roster you will imdoubt
telly see that the Tobacco Uoi'ld of
Trade at Greenville is a live organi
To realise the greatness of this 01-
ganization, one must, of course, do
as the writer has done, know the men
that are responsible for its greatness,
learn of the things that this organiza
tion stands for, its ways and means
i of handling the tremendous task ttiat
prompted its conception, after you have
done this it will not be difficult to
join with the witer and *o believe as
he does and say wth biti , 'lt's a gr--at
Center of Activity
GYeenville, N. C-, is .he center of
tic bright leaf tobacco tectum. To
bacco is .raised on all for miles

Cieenville, located a> it is, places it
ia the spotlight as a luarkc ing center
of the finest kind. Hen. one finds

is estimated that 25,t)00 farmer* f.'om

houes. Aside from this there art V
! tobacco factories, whoSe buyers make
'the purchases from the floors of these
I warehouses for foreign and domestic
'trade. There is to be fouuJ also many
independent buyers, thus making a
' large buying clientel. on the Green
jville market. Consider ior a moment
the vast throng that is in motiou dur
ing the tobacco selling season. Isn't
it reasonable to suppo.u this great ac
tivity must have a go.-cinmg foru'.
j Yes. And that is the task that the
| Tobacco Board of Trade oi Gre* nviile
handles with the very best results
year after year.
About 32 years ago Greenville realiz
ed its first tobacco board of* trade.
The purpose of its creation was lo pro
mote interest in Greenville as a selling
point; also to see that tobacco ''s mar
keted in an orderly manner. All ware
house operators, as well as buyers,
are members of the tobacco board of
trade, all adhere to the policies of the
i board; during the passing years ecu
j ideas have been incorporated int> the
| original program, each one being of
'a nature that would benefit buyer and
seller alike, every one to have a squaie
deal; sb well has every one cooperat
ed with the officials and the members
of the board, Greenville has its offic
ials, the following:
R. M. Garrett, president; W. Z.
[Morton, vice president; K. W. Cobb*
treasurer; and H. A. Bpst t secretary.
Each and every one of these gentle
men are well versed in every branch
of the tobacco industry.
Thousands of people, both men and
women, find employment in the fields,
harvest the tobacco crop; then they
move ta the city, where they are em
ployed in the factories and ware
houses. Many of them live in the
city, others come from the farms and
near-by towns. Trucks are operated
to bring them in ths city. 4
The Greenville tobacco market some
eight years ago decided that if it was
to take its place with the larger to
bacco markets of th eWorld, it would
have to advertise, so with that in
luiiui they employed K. .W. Cobb as
advertising manager and supervisor Of
sales. Mr. Cobb, who has had twenty
years' experience in advertising, con
ducts each spring a mammoth adver
tising campaign, through newspapers,
billboards, personal letters, , and by a
personal visit to the 32 counties that
sell their tobacco on the Greenville
marke has grown from 28 to 70 million
pounds, and from 2 to 5 sets of buyers,
tobacco market. Since that time the
The eight warehouse firms also put 011
individual advertising campaigns, us
ing the same methods, and also by
having their force to call personally
on the producer at his farm.
The Greenville tobacco market's
growth for the past 21 years has been
wonderful. The sales each year were
