Is1 Relief Problem1 Seek Crop Reduction
.'With'an indicated reduction of from
) to 25'precent of the tenants, princi
, illy on the large plantations of the
. jrrtral costal plajn area of eastern
rth Carolina, a real problem in
ilief will be presented to communi
. es and individuals in this section
iring the latter part of the winter.
, County home and farm agents who
ive made a carefull survey of the
nancy situation for the agricultural
(tension service at State College find
at 'many land owners will be com.
elled to let many of their tenants
s for the simple reason that they
innot be .financed and furnished any
inger. Low prices for cotton and
:' ibaoco and lack of cash with which
pay debts and taxes are responsible
r tht condition. It is estimated that
nlesa tome new situation arises be
.veen .now and February 1 that be
Eveen 15,000 and 20,000 tenant fami
i m will have to seek new work by
t epring. This means about 100,000
arsons let loose as a social problem.
However, landowners are making
"rtry effort to care for their tenants.
B best ones are being retained and
ten the others will be permitted to
ay in their old homes without any
aaraatee of furnishing, if they can
t fiad new places. In some other
istaaees, the landlords are endeavor-1
ig to care for the whole lot by re
aeing the allowance to each family,
he bright spot in this eastern Caro
na situation is the abundance of food
ad feet which is about enough to
rrjr the families through the winter,
he black spot if the lack of cloths
nd cash and the taking of food sup
lies to pay mortgages.
In "the piedmont, tidewater and
iountain sections conditions are much
etter and few tenants will be releas
d, according to the reports.

iheuld be substituted for those torn

trhich cannot be grown or exchanged
or locally should be purchased. The
ive-at-hame program should be en
arged, says Mr. Blair until it is even
noro complete than it was in 1931
Jert, farmers should be careful aboul

hould be used and even then the
ney should be borrowed if possible

educe the acreage of those crops re

rease the acreage of those requiring

, .The final three suggestions offeree
j-Mr. Blair, call for the planting ol
aore legumes wherever possible, the
ise of larger fields and the planting
f more land to pasture.
Joint Committee Will Make
Survey Of Chief Needs
6 Of States Involved.
The governors of four of the
South's greatest agricultural states
were bucK in their home capitals af
ter working out details by which an
agreement reached at a conference

bacco,, peanuts and potatoes, may be
Kach of the four states Virginia,
North Carolina, South Carolina and
Georgia is to be represented by thiee
men on a joint committee which will
be charged with the duty of surveying
crop conditions for the last ten fears
and making recommendations for
acreage quotas in each state for each
crop in 1932.
The plan was set forth after the
conference in a statement signed by
the governors O. Max Gardner of
North Carolina, who arranged the
conference, John G- Follard, of Vir
ginia, IbraC. Blackwood, of South
Carolina, and Richard B. Kussel of
The statement said in part:
"It was unanimously agreed that
each governor appoint three men from
his state to constitute what wi'l be
known as the four-state commitee,
and that such committer survey the
acreage and production of 'h. main
cash crops for the past 10 years in
each state and recommend definite
quotas or acreage for 1932, and that
the said committee report back their
plans to the governors as soon as
"It was also agreed that a very
important phase of the whole subject
of acreage reduction related to the
question of credit and banking and
each governor proposed to take this'
matter up with the banking and credit
agencies of the state with a view of
securing their co-operation."
Each governor will decide for him
self the manner in which the plan
is to be carried out in his state.
The conference received a petition
from a committee authorized by the j
North Carolina legislature to memor-
ialize congress for a rebate on com-!
modify taxes, asking that all con-J
gressmen and senators be asked to co- j
operate in the four states but no i
action was taken. !
Praise Given Judge
William H. Smathers
Judge William H. Smathers, of At
lantic City, New Jersey, son of Dr.
an.i Mrs. B. F. Smathers, of this city,
has iome in recently for quite a good
deal Kit praise by some of the poli
ticians of New Jersey on account of
the diligence with which he adminis
ters justice from his court. The latest
that we have noticed is a paragraph
from the editorial columns of the At
lantic City Journal:
"In closing let me say that Judge
Smathers is probably the bigest man
that has come vut of the Atlantic
county end of this fight. He is mak
ing somew'.iat of a reputation for
himself throughout the state ami, un
less I miss my guess, will go higher
in New Jersey polities. Who can tell
-he may land a big job up state.
1 know a lot of local folks who hope
so, and they are not all democrats
either. Catch on?"
Judge Smathers has been in the
community for some time visiting his
parents and other relatives.

According to Commander J- C.
latrick the local post of the American
gion has reached a total number
175 members. This is not as many

j'lhave, but since many prospects
ave moved away they feel that the

nany or more than could be e
ected. . j
The American Legion sponsored the

You probably know that liat Is used in
tlic 'treatment of all cigarette tobaccos.
But you know too tbat excessive beat
can destroy freshness and fragrance.
Tbat's wby tbere could be no truly frcsb
cigarette except for scientifically developed
metbods of applying beat.
Reynolds is proud of baving discovered
and perfected metbods for getting tbe
benefits of beat treatments and still avoid
ing ever parcbing or toasting.
Willi every assurance we tell you, Camels
are truly fresJi. Tbey're made fresh not
parched or toasted and then they're Icept
fresh in the Camel Humidor Pack.
If you wish to know why the swing to
Camels is nationwide and steadily growing
switch to them for just one day then
leave them, if you can.
