Echoes of The Duplin Story are
being beard around Duplin these
jays. : In fact we 1 heard it . from
Durham last night. ' The sounds
haven't reached amplification proportions-
yet but are scheduled to
0o so in a few more days. ' :
Bascom Imar Lunsford, the
"Minatrel ; of - the . Appalachians"
from Turkey Creek, way up in :he
mountains west of Asheville, has
decided to oast his next lot with
old Duplin and establish his East
Carolina Folk Festival Cere. Mr.
Lunsford has been toying with the
thought for several years of estab
lishing an East Carolina Folk Fes-
tival somewhere in Eastern North
Carolina and after, 'learning the
1 story of "The Duplin Story" and
visiting Kenan Memorial Auditor
ium in Kenansville decided that
right here ia the heart of Duplin
was just the spot he has been, loot
ing .for;..-, :,i,t ,., Jf.f,:jf,,,,
Mr. Lunsford Is master of the
arts of folk festivals. He has estab
lished and Is successfully operat
ing festivals at Chapel Hill under
4 the sponsorship of the University
1 of North Carolina and at Asheville
in the city auditorium. The Chapel
Hill festival was held in Kenan
Stadlem last month and the Ashe
ville Festival will be held next
month. 'August 7. 8. and 9th. A
number from Duplin are expecting
to attend and some of Chocolate's
dancers win participate.: .v.
Mr. Lunsford visited "Duplin
County several weeks ago and dis
cussed the matter with a . number
of interested citizens, following
which the nDuplln County . Parent

you may notify Hugh Wells or Mrs.

Above we said' we heard about
the (Festival . from Durham this
-week.- Last night we were inform
ed that some musicians from Dur

Mr. Lunsford and are' planning to
come down and participate. ' '
Judging from experiences of Mr.
Lunsford the Festival standsi to
put Kenansville and Duplin Coun
.. ty in the limelight again.. The Du-
. plin Story told the world about Du
plin and this Festival will center
attention from all eastern Caro
lina and In time will spread state
wide as have the Chapel Hill and
Asheville festivals. ' Mr." Lunsford
vls not entering It down here on an
experimental' basis he says he
means' business and that once he
starts the festival Is here to stay
and will rapidly become an East-
- ern Carolina institution.. It pro
mises to attract thousands to Du
plin for the two nights. The audi
torium will ' be equipped to seat
upwards towards 4,000 people each
night. Admission will be much low
er than admission for the Duplin
Story. Musicians will flock 'all
over Kenansville. and Duplin Coun
ty will hear music. like It never
heard before. . : -
: Other features of the Festival
will be announced as time goes
along. The eyes of Eastern Caroli
na will soon all be focused dn Ken
ansville and Duplin County, ex
pecting another phenominal suc
cess such as was -the '"Miracle in

HELEN CALDWELL CUSHMAN
The most important day in the
lives of Duplin County farmers this
year comes this Saturday, the day
of tne flue-cured tobacco market
ing referendum. It is in every
sense a vote for survival. It will
affect not only all growers, tenant
farmers and sharecroppers, all of
whom are eligible to vote, but the
day is of paramount importance to
every merchant, banker, lawyer,
worker, teacher, housewife and of
ficial of Duplin County. Should
the quota fail to pass, or should it
be discontinued because of the
poor vote showing a lack of Interest
in the matter, it would spell dis
aster for people all over the South,
and particularly in Duplin.
81 per cent of the income of our
county comes from tobacco. The
price of that commodity concerns
every man, woman and child. Let
no farmer delude himself that his
vote does not matter, that others
wjill Vote, and besides he had
planned to barn tobacco that day.
If too many of our people feel like
that the danger of ruin will mount
and soon that farmer who did not
take the time to vote'on "thisain
important day will find himself
without a farm, a car a hnn
All the gains that the program has
brought the people of the South
could and very possibly would be
wiped out overnight, and the re
sulting depression would wipe out
hundreds of business men as we.l
as tobacco growers themselves.
When the bill comes up in Con
