Stories of businessmen who
have made' a “rags-to-riches”
climb in the world of industry
and finance generally receive
wide attention in the nation’s
press. You have read more than
one biography t^iat began with a
young man selling hominy door
to-door—or firing boilers on an
ocfean liner—and ended with the
fellow accumulating millions_^of
dollars and rising to great heights.
These stories are true, of course,
in this country where no iiction
is ever as strange as the fact.
But equally a^rue, arid far less
frequently exproited are the ac
counts of the little people who
start with a meager beginning and
wrest, a degree of success from
the very soU they were bom to.
They never become presidents
of - gigantic inter-locking corpo
rations, nor do they acquire own
ership of sprawling industries
that employ thousands of work
ers—^but in their’ own right they
must be recognized as village
Carnegies, community ^cs^fel-
lers, local Pulitzers. Not for\the
power and wealth they have been
able to amass over the years, but
in that narrow cor^ridor of fame
they have chiseled security, hap
piness, and a decent living.

Back in 1941, 'flhe Miltons were
living on a thirty-five acre farm
near Creedmore where they rais
ed tobacco os their principal crop.
It was not'Unusual for them to
lose from thirty to fifty per cent
of their tobacco through wilt, and
in those years, tobacco prices
were a cause for worry. It seem
ed that the weather was always
unfavorable, and hail damaged
their crop year after year. Their
one cow got little attention in the
scheme of things then.
But a great deal happened as
the years rolled by. and by 1946
the Miltons owned their own
farm of eighty fertile acres, were
milking “fourteen head of dairy
cattle out of a herd that includ
ed twenty-seven cows and a bull.
They were selling thirty gallons
of milk a day in winter and a-
bout fifty gallons in the summer.
The cows grazed permanent pas
tures where a few years before
friends had warned the Miltons
that no lespedeza or rye'^^ould
