"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)" the writer points out, He men tions the famous Orton plantation.

'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 tioneer chanted. A buyer from a Washington, D. C, grocery chain showed me a day's order for 5,000 dozen ears of corn. One hundred and fifty thousand bushels of cu cumbers grown in this region move direct from vines to a local pickle plant." As the author of an article in the Geographic in recent years on the Great Smoky Mountains Na tional Park, the writer took advan tage of the opportunity again to risit the park, and he devotes con- F.

"More than 4.500 state owned buses transport 331,000 children over 143,000 miles each school day." Fisheries, quarrying, and other business enterprises, as well as the many social and cultural ac tivities of North Carolina are fully discussed by Mr. Roy, as well as being' portrayed in the many illus trations which add graphic detail to the story.
