THE HISTORY OF COTTON TEXTILES
SOON after he introduced
modern textile maun
factoring methods to Amer
ica, Samuel Slater took the
lead in expanding cotton
spinning mills throughout
New England. He saw the
industry grow from his
single mill in Pawtucket to
more than 100 factories in
Rhode Island and nearby
states. Slater and his as
sociates also became the
first large-scale builders of
textile machinery and today
he is known as "The Father
of American Manufacturing."
Building Program For Duplin
Highway Commissioner Clark of
Fayetteville, accompanied by dist
rict engineer Lewis Whitfield of.
Fayetteville and B. Britton, main
tenance engineer of Burgaw, mst
in executive session here Monday
with the Duplin County Board of
Commissioners. Mr. Clark outlined
the plan jet up for paving and im
proving roads in Duplin under the
new road program scheduled to
get under way before long. Of the
$200,000,000 voted by the people of
North Carolina for road work in
the special referendum recently,
$2,978,000 has been earmarked for
Duplin County and 90 of that
amount will be spent in the county
Clirk said. Ten per cent has been
set aside for the qualiztion fund.
Mr. Clark emph&sized that the
roads are not for sale. They are not
political roads, he said. A yard
stick has been set up to de
termine what roads need repair,
paving or constructed first and
thi work will proceed along that
line. The ones most needed accord
ing to the yardstick will be looked
after first, regardless of any pe
titions. He showed a map he had of
Duplin showing every road in the
county, every house on the road,
every mail and school bus rouie.
Petitions will not have any effect
on road work. But, In case petitions
are gotten up, they should be pre
sented to the Board of County
Commissioners. He also emphasized
that highway employees, including
Mr. Tndall in this county, have no
authority or say so about what
roads are to be worked. They re-ceiv-
their instructing from higher
up and It is wasting time to cuil
on them for hplp. Neither should
they be blamed if your particular
pet road does not get first attention.
Roads under construction in Du
plin present a total -of 47 miles.
More roads are under construction
;,t present in Duplin than in any
county in the district. Conservative
estimates now call for 163.8 mile;
to be paved in the county, the e
will probably be mere. Mr. Clark
pointed out that by actual count
there is move artu.il traffic on un
improved ro-u' j in Duplin than any
county in his district. There is mori
traffic on the Heulaville-1 ink Hill
road than any unpaved road in
The second Tuesday in each
month will be Duplin's day in the
district highway office In Fayette
ville, at which time all road prob
lems in Duplin will be considered.
Referring to new roads, he said
the county is alloted 7V4 miles of
additional roads each year. No
more nor no less.
The Messrs. Clark, Whitfield and
3ritton were in a very good mood
and appeared to be taking the road
work seriously. It was the consen
sus of those present that Duplin
stands to share well under the
Scott road program. Mr. Clark slso
instructed the department to give
any help possible towards making
preparations for the Pageint to be
given here next month. He appear
ed to be vitally interested in the
program. He expressed sincere ap
preciation for the vote and pirlt
of Duplin in the road bond drive. 1
The' following Resolutions were
passed while the Duplin Board of
Commisiorcrs were in session:

Judson Gregory, Teacher, Radio
Announcer; Tobacco Supervisor
As the Wallace tobacco market
officially gets down to business its
new sales supervisor is Jntison C.
"Jud," as he's known locally, re
oeived a diploma from the Univer
sity of South Carolina in June, 19
36.. He sort of "lucked" his way in-,
to a school-teaching job that sum
mer and found it so interesting he
stuck with it for the next six years.
School teaching has taken up most
of his time since leaving college.
There have been, however, various
and. sundry occupations all the
way from digging ditches to farm
ing to truck driving to selling real
estate. Those positions (or jobs,
some of them would more appro
priately be called) which provided
most pleasure and real enjoyment
were those which brought contact
with other personsOf course, says
Gregory, you get a great deal of
contact with others as a school
teacher and it's fine training in
learning how to deal with and re
spect the opinions of otheis.
Gregory ventured into Tar Heel
territory in September-of 1947. Dur
ing the preceding five- years he had
served at an instructor to Uncle
Sam's Air Force personnel in one
of the Army radar isfchools. Anxious
to eet back ;hito .the usual routine

This same radio job brought him
to Wallace in September, 1948, as
manager of the WRRZS studios
there. . During his off 1 hours, of
which there won't be many, during
the 1949 tobacco season,, he's at

one time his favorite hobby, btlt
that had to descend to second pises

Commenting about Wallace (TBe
World's Largest One-Sale Bright
Leaf Tobacco Market), Gregory has
this to say: '. i if --i- j ?..
"It's just about the 'best place
there is to live. The friendliest
people in eastern North Carolina
live right in Wallace.".
When he gets to reminiscing,
Gregory says that matter of farm
ing always seems to pop up. It was
way back in the early 1930's that he
went through that particular phase
of his multisided career, and he still
contends that his father actually
bought the farm in orfler to keep
half dozen sons employed during
their otherwise idle summer' vaca
tion periods between school' terms.
But he didn't get to meet too
