A Good Word For A Public Utility
In our news columns this week we are re
printing a story carried a few days ago by the
News and Observer, in which Rate Expert Edgar
Womble of the State Utilities Commission has
a good word and some explicit figures which
speak even more eloquently in praise of a
private corporation in the public utility busi
ness. Such a good word from a public official
for an electric company is a rare thing indeed
these days, when the air is filled with the
praises and advantages of Federal authorities
such as the fabulous Tennessee Valley Au
thority. The power company serves this area of the
state and many here will be interested in the
savings that have been effected. The power
company, too, is one of the county's and of the
state's largest taxpayers, and through its op
eration here instead of the area being served
by a Federal authority there accrues another
savings to all of our taxpayers through its
bearing its share of the taxload, amajor fault
to be found with Federally financed projects
which compete with or displace private corporations.

You're my kind . . . Have a Coca-Cola
... or allies enjoy a friendly pause
Friendliness enters the picture at the words Have a Coke. It's a
happy custom, everywhere, for people to meet together over
frosty bottles of ice-cold Coca-Cola. In many lands around the
globe, Coca-Cola stands for the pause that refreshes, has become
an everyday high-sign of frieodliness among people of good will.

Many questions are being asked us about fertilizers
for the coming season, and we want to make the follow
ing statement in reply:
In our opinion, based on information available to us, the chief fertilizer
problems this season will be those of shipping and delivery. All our manu
facturing connections are seriously short of labor, and this is the general
situation confronting the whole industry. Shipping, both by rail and
truck, is as you know not up to the usual standards, and delays are being
encountered more and more. Farm deliveries from local warehouses
depend upon local labor and local trucks, and most of you are familiar
with both these problems. So. our advice is simply this:
Give your fertilizer order to your fertilizer dealer without waiting
any longer, and arrange to take immediate delivery. We believe this is
the ONLY way farmers all round will be able to get what they want and
be ready to use fertilizer when they need it. While there may be enough
fertilizers in sight, and we believe this is true, the delivery problem is
definitely serious, and we believe the only solution is for early purchase
and taking delivery of all requirements.
The usual registered brands with their guaranteed analyses are in
most cases available this season, and prices are very little higher.
See us for V-C, Swift, Pearsall, Robertson's, Weil's
and Naco brands. They are all good, and we unhesita
tingly recommend them.

Two thousand gallons of gas just
to have that much would be some
thing over here but to have that
much behind you on a trailer with
a Nazi plane diving at you from the
clouds would not sit any too well
with most of the home folks. Yet,
taking such chances of being blown
to bits is the everyday job of Cor
porals Walter Handon and Elmer
McCall of Raeford, Rt. 2, and Cpl.
William Blount of Lumberton, Rt. 1,
Cpl. William P. Morrison of Southern
Pines and Pvt Joshau Wright, Jr.,
These boys are members of a
Motor Transport unit which have been
plying the roads, of France since
June 26, delivering motor and air
plane gasoline to artillery units and
airfields, in 2000 gallon lots, much
of it going almost to the front lines,
following the armored columns of
General Patton giving "transfusions"
to stranded armored units right in the
thick of an advance. Many boys
of the MTS have been overseas so
long now that the roads and high
ways of England, of France, of Bel
gium, of Holland and even parts of
Germany are as familiar to them
as the highways of North Carolina,
and they know the hiding places
which will shield them and their
trucks from plane attack probably
far better than they ever knew the
"parking" places back home.

Some of the Many Features of the
GAIIIEY TOBACCO CURER
This Burner is Built to Last. 1009 heavy Cast iron construc
tion. No small or delicate parts to break, rust or burn away.
No wicks to clean and replace. Under ordinary care, will
No Open Flame in the Barn. Designed to be as nearly fire
proof as is possible to make it. It is significant that no Gainey
equipped barn has ever been destroyed by fire.
Uses Your Present Wood Furnace Flues.
No Sweating. Air for burner is drawn from within barn. A
steady circulation of air is thereby maintained throughout the
barn, effectively removing all moisture, and exhausting it
through the flues and stack, to the outer air.
No "Sitting-Up" at Night. Visit your barn once or twice a
day, to check temperature. Once fuel valve is set, no further
attention is required. Burner is controlled by a small, simple
float-valve unit, conveniently located outside of barn. Tem
perature is regulated by the moving of a small lever on this
unit. After this is set, float valve automatically regulates
flow of oil to burner. Result no extremes in temperature, .
and no smoking.
Economical in Operation. Owing to wide differences in barn
construction and condition, and varying practices in curing,
it is impossible to give exact fuel consumption. Wide ex
perience indicates that the average barn requires from 75
to 125 gallons No. 1 fuel oil per curing. At the prevailing
price of oil, this will amount to from $7.50 to $12.50 per cur
ing. Under any circumstances it pays big dividends to go
over your barn each year, and make it close and tight. Your
burner will operate better; you will get better cures, and you
will save money in fuel.
Because this burner will maintain an even temperature
over a long period of time, and because there is no danger
of sweating, a Gainey Equipped Barn will turn out barn after
barn of evenly cured, high grade leaf, which will bring a
premium on the market.
After the expense and trouble of growing a crop of fine
tobacco, you cannot afford to lower its quality by haphazard
curing methods. Solve this problem by installing a GAINEY
TOBACCO CURER NOW.
Every burner sold on a money-back guarantee. Contact your
local dealer and place your order for burners to equip your
barns without delay.
