' THS EDITOR -
'- Well we have some Interesting,
reading this week. It seems that
our subscribers turned an aval
anche of letters loose -on us. We
first thought we would run them
Ul In open forum and when the
last was received .from an un
known writer we obuld not help,
but feature Hon the front page.
The writer, commenting on the
present administration In wash-
, Ington City expressed the opln
- " a. .-. a MiillniM nfi UmithamtaH
Ib of millions of (Southerners,
especially farmets- It Is the first
time that our National Govern
ment has really pdt forth an at
tempt to aid agriculture. Also
I am Inclined to agree with what
the . writer Infewl i-ogardlng
oar Supreme, Court. Is It right
that 'nine men should have the
power to literally tear down and
destroy the program ot an ad
ministration that Is doing every
thing, in its power to help the
farmer- and downtroduen man?
Our .constitution' Is a document
that has been' written through
the 169 years of our governments
history. During that time many
changes have been maae. Most
noticeable' probably were the two
amendments freeing the Slaves,
and repealing the -18th amend
The framework ot our Gov
ernment haS not been altered, so
far aa comttltuttatt Is concerned,
taut , when" a condition arises as
the years from 1989 to the pres
ent When so-called unconstitu
tional measure , have to be en
acted to pull this country out of
what might have been complete
destruction through revolution
then it seems 'to me that our
-constitution should be altered to
make such laws conform to our
structure and procedure of gov-
r efntnent ,under thenew order
R It seems t f tS&'&lim
oldent that this letter should
reach the desk the same week
Nand the very same day- as did the
letter from Rev. John T. Fitz-
geral'J Inl New York.; As one let
ter carried' the cry of the South
ern Farmer that he should fight
With' the president in his efforts
to help the farmer, the letter
from',! the -Industrial and money
center of the East rang with the
i cry of the money powers to stop
this program of resuscitating
- the already drowned man be
cause to do this might muddy
the .play 'Waters of the mighty
rich. Be v. Mr. Fitzgerald seems
to think that election time next
.year will be the most exciting
event we have had In this coun-
v try In many a day. "Coming e
vents cast their shadows before"
la an old saying that too often
proves to be true. Agreeing with
the -writer of the first letter, I
am of the opinion that Southern
and Western farmers better u
nite behind this NEW DEAL
' program as it affects hem and
, keep the Roosevelt a Jmlnistra-
Hon in power until the new order
: can be well seated.
'Some of the residents of "Choco-
lato'MrtU be interested in Rommie
O'Daniel's letter about his family
discoveries in Tennessee, while
those most interested in the Wet
and Dry issue will be Interested in
Mr. Qulnn's letter. Again a tax
payer sounds a note of warning to
the-., board of commissioners about
raising .the tax rate.

' Rev. Mr. Gooding was called to
Virginia this week on account of
the illness of his mother. '
'Farmers of this section are

to the opening of the border

Very encouraging. Quite a number
of Duplin farmers are spending the
day on the border markets.

Distributing AAA (;
'$$1 Marketing: Cards
- Distribution Of DupllH ;; County

Border Belt Market Opened
Today; Early Reports From
Whiteville, Aug. 8th. With, to
bacco coming into Whiteville in a
steady stream for the past three
days reports from this marketing
city state that there is approxi
mately two million 'pounds of the
leaf spread on the warehouse
floors of Whltevillc's warehouses
awaiting sale. It truly looks as U
this is the beginning of the great
est season ever experienced by the
Whiteville market and while it will
be necessary to sell near two mil
lion pounds of tobacco today and
tomorrow the Whiteville tobacco
nists feel confident that their
floors will be cleared by five
o'clock Friday afternoon, leaving
them clean and bare for a big sale
As this report is received sales
had not begun on the Whiteville
market and, unless later informa
tion is received, one can only guess
as to what price will be paid to
day. Reports from the Georgia
Belt which opened last Thursday
have been very encouraging to the
tobacco growers of this State,
however, the average price paid
on the Georgia markets cannot bci
used as a comparison for the pric-)
es that will be paid in the Border
Belt opening week. Georgia has a
very fine crop of tobacco this year.
Reports from tobacconists on the
Georgia markets state that the
best of this crop is being sold first.
Contrary to this the tobacco grow
ers of the Border Belt are bring
ing their sand lubs and other non
descript grades to market this
week. . . . with a sprinkling of the
' better types.

This is educational. Last week
you were asked to read every is
sue. The Wets say Prohibition has
Opined the Country, Dry's say It
was a success. Who's right?
, .Firsts whether for or against .al
coholic drinks, let us be honest
with each other, broad minded,
think and consider. You will find
the writer fair to all. I will not
condemn the drunk who while driv
ing his car runs into another and
kills several members of a happy
sober family, nor the drunk who
goes home and abuses his family,
nor the drunk in the gutter. I am
not writing these articles to con
demn, for a man with his delicate
brain cells destroyed by poisonous
alcoholic drinks is to be pitted. I
am writing these articles to show
just what alcohol has done, is do-
ing and will do, and for other rea-
sons which you will learn later.
Were I to actually condemn it
would have to be the sober man
who knowing the danger of alco
hol continues to drink, or to take
the first drink. It would be the
drink and never get drunk, for ho I
it is, that the sober youth listens
to and then decides he can do the I .

The thousands who r.ave-tobaccj
here for sale today are e vincing
genuine satisfaction over the priced
they are receiving and many oth
ers here as spectators state they
will be back next week with as
much of the weed as they can
make ready for the market. It 13
hard to estimate the average price
of the tobacco that is being sold
today. Competition is keen en nil
Todays offering are lacking in
quality, when taken as a whole,
but if the pleased experssions com
ing from those who are receiving
checks for their tobacco can be
considered as an indication, then
It can be safely said-that the aver
age will be surprisingly high.
Opening day last season this
sold four hundred seven-
teen thousand pounds of tobacca.
Opening day this year that mark
; will be execeeded by nearly a quar
ter million pounds. The average
for the opening day sale last year
was twenty one dollars and thirty
cents per hundred. Many are pre
dicting as great an increase in tile
average price as there is in li-.i
Pudage. All are unanimous in
stating that tobacco is selling
much higher than they expected.
