On Monday night, 46 tomato
produce from Buncombe and
Madison counties met in the coun
ty courthouse here for the pur
pose of organizing a Fruit and
Vegetable Producers Association
Cooperative. Agricultural Exten
sion Workers from adjoining coun
ties present at the meeting were
V. L. Holloway, County Extension
Chairman from Haywood Coun
ty; W R. Palme, County Exten
son Charman and Frank Baker,
County; and Vernon W. Sms,
Assstant Agent from Buncombe
County Agricultural Agent from
Unco County, Tennessee.
Mr. Holloway explained how
farmers in Haywood County organ
ized a -similar organization in 1959
and how the organization had
grown through the 1962 season.
Mr. Holloway explained that their
organization marketed over $500,
000 worth of vine ripe tomatoes
last year, and that production is
increasing at a very rapid rate..
He stated that in his opinion the
only way that our small mountain
farmers could put their products
on a national market was to work
together in a cooperative manner,
pool their products, have them
properly packed, and sold by na
tionally known brokers. He ex
plained that over 85 of all fresh
produce purchased by the house
wifes today are handled by chain
stores and supermarkets. These
tlets demand the products they
handle be put together in the form
satisfactory to them, that it be of
uniform quality and adequate.
qnaat-te moot their demands.
This type of marketing is impos
sible by the individual, farmer.

A farmer is a pretty vulnerable
.man as he plies his trade. In a
r .... ...
sense, he is threatened by loss at
every turn. Violet weather can
wipe out his crop in a matter of
minutes. Market drops can great
ly reduce his profit.
But there's one loss he needn't
sustain. It cost North Carolina
farmers well over six million dol
lars in 1961. This is the failure
to file for a gasoline tax refund.
There is a Federal tax of four
cents and a State .of seven cent
on every gallon of gasoline sold
to the public in North Carolina.
The funds derived in this manner
are being used on Federal and
State roads. But much of the gas
oline is used by fanners goes for
non-highway purposes. Simply by
keeping records, and by filing an
application, farmers can get most
of this money back.
they are entitled to a full re
fund of the four-cents Federal tax
en gasoline used for non-highway
purposes. And they can regain
six of the seven cento paid to the
State. Since one cent of the State
gas tax to charged to the high'
way bond debt, it is not refund-HaV

A two-man holdup of the Hot

noon netted the bandits between
$7,000 and $8,000, and brought
