J. B. Hutson, President of Tobacco
Associates, Inc., issued a statement
this week urging farmers ''to be
more cautious in grading their cur'
rent crop of tobacco to help over
come increasing complaints by for
eign manufacturers who object
strenuously to the 'mixed' condition
in which our tobacco is brought
"Since over one-third of the to
bacco grown is exported, it is es
sential that every effort be made
to nrepare the leaf for market in
such a manner as to please in so
tar as possible the foreign manufac
turers who use our tobacco," he
, Hutson, who's job is to promote
world markets for flue-cured tobac
co, said his statement was prompted
by increased complaints in recent
months by foreign users of U. S.
tobacco about the way our leaf is
graded on the farm. "During ' my
recent trip to Europe," he said, "I
was shown several samples verify
ing this criticism."
"Improper grading is also making
it easier for foreign countries to
take part of our export market"
the farm leader said, emphasizing
that "some of the newer flue-cured
producing areas, such as Southern
Rhodesia, Canada, and Brazil are
generally doing a better job of
keeping lugs, cutters, leaf, and tips
separated during preparation for
-narket As a result our flue-cured
leaf compares 'unfavorably in this
respect with , 'fluecured ' ' tobacco
produced in other countries. This
situation tends, to. intensiby $he com
petition our left is being faced with
in our overseas markets." ..
In order to, correct this, unfavor
able position ; regarding . '."mixed
grades, Hutson urged growers to
(1) market separately lugs,,, cutters,
leaf and tips; (2) pick out carefully
all green, red, deads and, burned
leaves and sell separately; X3) care
fully pick otn all string and other
foreign mattervand: (41, tteut: tiiuV
formly sized bundles - with butts
about the size of a half-dollar.
"When bundles are too large,"
Hutson explained, "they do not dry
properly when the tobacco is being
processed through the re-drying
plants and quite often cause the
tobacco to mold later while in
storage. This, of course, causes sub
stantial losses to the owners as well
as being the basis for complaints
made about our tobacco."
Hutson said in conclusion that "in
the face of increased competition
from foreign producing areas, to
bacco growers could lose millions
of dollars yearly unless they do a
better job of grading their product
for market A good job of prepara
tion for market assures the realiza
tion of the highest possible income
of tobacco, as well as helps to hold
our foreign markets which are of
utmost importance to us if we are
to insure a steady market at a fair
price for the surplus above normal

Seven Springs citizens are hoping
the installation of telephones in the
area will help them, secure a medi
cal doctor's, service. i
Mayor. Horace Piner says he be
lieves the lack of a good telephone
network in ' the area has been one
of the obstables in the path of get
ting a physician. .
Until this month, when about 30
telephones were installed in Seven
Springs off the Moss Hill exchange,
the area was served, by about eight
phones off the private line of Seven
Springs Supply Company.
Piner and Henry Dail of Seven
Springs Supply Co, say other ob
stacles have been the inability of
the people to guarantee a salary
and specific practice to a doctor
who would come to Seven Springs.
Today the closest doctor Is in
LaGrange, eight miles away. Citi-
zens in the area receive medical
care from doctors in Mount Olive.
14 miles away; Goldsboro, 19 miles
away; Kinston, 19 miles away; Ken-'
ansville, 25 miles away, Pink Hill,
16 miles away and LaGrangje. .
"We have not given up hopes of
getting a doctor," Mayor Piner said,
"We are still working on getting
Dail said "If we could get a good
doctor, and were assured he would
become a permanent physician, I
think we could build a drug store
here and maybe a clinic." He added
"But we cannot afford to construct
buildings if they are not going to
be used." '
The Community Building, which
was constructed with community
funds and . materials, is so . con
structed that the ground floor can
be used for a doctor's office. "When
we were constructing the Commun
ity Building," Piner said, "it was
fixed so a doctor could use it for
