article emphasizes the ex-
of the state's highway
The writer, in his ex
tour, noted the vast acre-
oted to tobacco, but still was
ped to learn that North Car-
ith its 120.000 tobacco
employing half a million
people most of the year, was the
greatest tobacco growing state in
"Three tobacco companies op
erating large plants in the state
each use more than a quarter of a
million dollars' worth of revenue
stamps every working day," he
writes. "Do you wonder- that
North Carolina is the fourth rank
ing state in the payment of taxes
to Uncle Sam! I saw hundreds of
machines each producing more
than 1,200 cigarettes a minute.
Other machines packed them at
the rate of 120 packs a minute."
North Carolina's participation in
the defense program appealed to
Mr. Roy, who notes in his article
that the bulk of Wilmington's sea.
borne trade now is gasoline from
Texas: "More than one hundred
silvery tanks holding 65,000,000
gallons spread along the Cape Fear
River bank in and below the city.
Wilmington built ships for the
World War and is playing a similar
role in the defense program today.
On a 70-acre site nine ways have
been built where 37 steel cargo
ships of 7,500 tons each will be
assembled by 1943."
In connection with the defense
work, he visited Fort Bragg: "A
year ago its population was 5,000;
Fayetteville's about 20,000," the
article states.' "Last winter 24,000
workmen began thrusting roads
through pine forests and flanking
them with buildings at the rate of
one every 32 minutes. The mili
tary population has swelled to
more than 65,000. It is the largest
military reservation in the United
States about 25 miles long and
10 miles wide.
"Early spring brings throngs of
garden visitors here (Wilmington)"

article. "Now he owns outrieht
100 acres. 'We raise 27 different
crops, and ship as many as 10,000
dozen daffodils, 5,000 dozen irises
and 2,500 dozen gladioli in a day,' "
the grower told Mr. Roy. " 'We also
produce a quarter of a million bulbs
over those used for next year's
crop.' " '
The article in its sweep from
the coast to the Tennesee border
gives many interesting highlights.
"Produce is often sold at auction,
as is tobacco. At Faison I saw
buyers from northern cities bid
ding on corn, cantaloupes, string
beans and cucumbers, while an auc

Washington, D. C, grocery chain
