    COTTON DEMANDED
ay THESE WOMEN
i Council Of Farm Women Agree
To Demand Feeds In Cot
ion Sacks,
Rock Hill, S. C—Declaring that i
the people of the South should use |
cotton products whenever andj
wherever they can be used to1
economic advantage, the York j
county council of farm women at j
t a meeting held here unanimously i
passed resolutions requesting the ■
housewives of York county and of
the entire South to demand that
their flour, sugar and feeds shall i
come in cotton sacks and that they !
refuse to accept same in any other :
container.
* The grocers of York county and \
of the entire South are requested ,
in the resolutions to lend their full'
support to the movement. The1
numbers of the council are plan- 1
ning an exhibit of useful articles
made from cotton sacks at their
next meeting.
The resolutions adopted by the
council as made public by Miss
Lena Sturgis, the secretary, fol
low :
N “The prosperity of the South is
largely determined by the price;
secured each year for its cotton.
Tire price secured depends very
largely upon the demand for cot
ton products. It is, therefore, we
feel; encumbent upon all in the
South to use cotton products when
ever and wherever they can be
used to economic advantage. It is
our belief that it is certainly to
the economic advantage of the
housewives of the South to pur
chase their flour, sugar and feeds
* in cotton sacks, because of the
many very valuable uses to which
these sacks can be put after they
are emptied. In addition, we are
helping create a market for our
own product when we buy our
flour, etc., in them.”
t Therefore, Ee It Resolved, that
we request the housewives of York
county and of the entire South to
demand that their flour, sugar and
feeds shall come in cotton sacks
and that they refuse to accept
same in any .other container."
“Be It Further Resolved, that
we request the grocers of York
county and the entire South to
lend their full support to this
movement."

WALLACE B. DAVIS
Securities Company
Starts At Asheville
lias Authorized Capital Of Three
And A Half Million':—Affiliated
With Central Bank.
(Special to The Star.)
Asheville—Plans of the new Cen
tral Securities company of Ashe
ville, Inc., which were announced
here th.3 week, disclose the fact
that this new finance -and holding
company promises to be a most im
portant force in the further in
dustrial and commercial develop
ment of all Western North Caro
lina.
The Central Securities company,
with an authorized capital of $3,
500,000, s tarts business as" one of
the largest finance 'companies in
the Southern states. It was organ
ized by Wallace B. Davis and as
sociates, and is affiliated w-ith the
Central Bank and Trust company
of Asheville. Up to Saturday night,
over $703 030 of the company's cap
ital steel; had been subscribed,
largely by present stock-holders
of the Central Bank. Public sale of
Central Securities 7 per cent ^jrfnu
lative preferred stock and common
"B'’ stock was begun this week.
Central Securities company plans
principally to purchase Western
North Carolina industrial and mun
icipal bonds, and a limiljpd amount
of stock in banks, lnsifrance and
surety companies. Many forms of
cooperation will be extended to
present banks and financed or pur
chased by the company; neither
will real estate bond issues be ori
ginated, although real estate mort
gage bonds may eventually be han
dled as wholesale selling agent
when guaranteed by responsible
surety companies. An intensive
marketing campaign for securities
which will be handled by the com
pany is soon to be instituted in the
middlewest, where branch offices
will eventually be opened.
Wallace B. Davis, who is presi
dent of the Central Bank jyid Trust
company as well as the affiliated
Central Securities company, stated
that the new company was primari
ly designed to further the basic
commerce and industries of this
section. “We expect to provide a
financial service large enough, and
broadly useful enough to claim a
vital part in the progress of all
Western North Carolina,” said Mr.
Davis. “Wc are highly optimistic
of the success of the new company
It shall be my purpose, and the
purpose of my associates, to devote
our bes: talent and effort to its
management to the end that we
may equal the remarkable success
that has been achieved by other
companies similar to ours. An in
vestigation of the earnings of such
companies as the Bancitaly com
pany. the National City company,
the Citizens and Southern com
pany and the Hibernia Securities
company has established the fact
that their, earnings represent a
larger return on capital than do
the earnings cf the banks control
ling them.”
N. V. FARMERS UNDER
NEWSPAPER AVERAGE

the 5.032 farmers in North Caro
lina replying to a questionnaire of
the National Fertilizer association
were readers of daily newspapers,
according to a summary given out.
The percentage for the nation was
69 per cent while it was only 49 p<jr
cent in North Carolina.
Ninety per cent of the farmers
interviewed in Michigan and Ohio
read newspapers, but the total for
the two states was less than for
North Carolina. More replies' were
received from North Carolina than
any other state.
The percentage of farmers inter
viewed reading weekly newspapers
in North Carolina ^as 46 per cent.

MANY MARRIAGE
Investigator Finds Cities Where
Ministers And Justices Com
mercialise Weddings.
New York.—The Russel Sage
foundation reported that a study
of marriage law administration in
30 states has revealed the exist
ence o^ 57 “mbrriage market towns"
in 39 states.
The report states that these
towns constitute the most conspic
uous, though not the most serious,
result of "the general neglect of
ma--'age laws in this country,”
^The communities styled mar
rirge market towns are these that
have more than twice as large
a ni. .: ige rate as th it ot their
state, or which draw more than
half their marriage candidates
from outside license districts.
"We are so little Inclined to ad
vertise these places,” says the
foundation "that we are suppress
ing their names throughout this
report. ‘
Kept Out Of Papers.
In one marriage market town
the report says that social work
ers were told by the Justice of the
peace th t his regular fee was $3
out lf„the principals wanted their
marriage kept out of the papers he
charged $3 extra.
In this town runners for the Jus
tices were found who went so far
ui soliciting business as to board
moving automobiles If they thought
the occupants looked as though
they might get married If properly
approached. |
In another town two Justices of
the peace advertised in street cars
running 1 om a nearby city, dis
playing cai cards reading ••sweet
heart; be ready at 4 o'clock we ll
go to for lust p short riue, and
justices a'd -will tie ihe knot.’’
Ministers Profiin*.
In a third town ministers rathei
tlian Justices were ound to be
profiting by the business, splitting
of fees with taxi drivers who
brought th"m couples to marry
having been charged against sev
eral
In one marriage market town
the chamber of commerce stroke In
Its printed circulars of the town's
advantages for weddings.
The report includes a study of
exploiting of marriages, which It
says is by no means limited to mar
riage market towns. In one city
where license applications may be
received by any notary public n
Jeweler had himself 'appointed a
notary and then advertt; ing free
marriages for all who bought rings
in his store. Other means of ex
ploiting mnniage were listed at
(i s at public expositions, or
floats hi street parades, in fcrrh
wheels, in airplanes, theatres, swim
mlng tan s and at midnight or
June 1 to win prir-s offered by
; merchants for the first Juno bride
Seldom Illegal*
I The foundation says that ex
ploh: n of marriage is rally'll*
N'yal and sur <;,(* that only pub

says destroy the solemnity of the
marriage vows and tem! to elimin
