In a long line of recent produc

taiost successful example of the ur

in films, while Mr. Cooper comes to .
"Bluebeard's Eighth Wife" fresh
from a number of soldier-of-fortune
roles, including "The General Died at

Hiss Colbert, in the role of a penni
less French aristocrat who marries
him for his money, accomplishes the
miracle by letting him understand
jthot she is one woman he cannot

ons .of coolness, indifference and
atuhbornness work wonders, and, ai

her hand, she brings sanity and love
to Gary's life at last. i
"Bluebeard's Eighth Wife" con
tinues the tradition of sophisticated
comedy laid against a continental
background, which has been so strong
during the past year, outstanding
examples being "Champagne Waltz"

Cooperative Selling ,
Helps Hog: Producers
Nnrt.h Carolina farmers
have sold $1,500,000 worth of hogs!
through their local cooperative mar
keting associations since January 1
1937, said H. W. Taylor, of - State
The 85,000 hogs sold in this way
were shipped direct to the packers,
who pay prevailing market prices for
the high quality pork obtained from
swet of the hogs. ,
Although packers make deductions
for soft and oily pork, Taylor added,
growers have lost comparatively lit

extension service is designed not only
to help growers sell their , hogs to ad

to produce high quality hogs.
At the first of the year 1937, two
cooperative hog markets were func
tioning in Eastern Carolina. Growers
were so pleased with the results that
they have organized IS more asso

county farm agents assist growers in

Clark Gable and Myrna Loy
Spectacular flying, four stellar
players and a four-star story provide
startling entertainment in "Test
Pilot," most authentic aviation pic
ture yet produced.
Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, Spencer
Tracy and Lionel Barrymore head the
cast of the first air picture produced
by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in more
than two years.
Director Victor Fleming has incor
porated some of the most striking
flying scenes yet seen in an aviation
picture. The nature of the subject,
dealing as it does with men who daily
dare their lives in a-duel with death,
insures a world of thrills. They're
The story is that of a test pilot,
played by Gable. Without varying
from factual experience, it tells ex
actly how one of these daredevils
lives, not sparing the man, but withal
showing that he is human. The ro
mance is a three-cornered affair be
tween Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and
the "woman in the sky," who is the
pilot's first love. Spencer Tracy sac
rifices his life to prove to Gable that
his wife is far more important than
the calling which has 'been forever
clutching at the narrow thread of his
al quality, and arrangements have
been made with the U. S. Bureau of
Animal Industry to provide federal
graders to determine whether the
pork is hard, soft, or oily.
Swine cannot be graded for soft or
oily pork until slaughtered and cool
ed. Therefore, this work must be
done at the packing houses, where
the federal graders will be placed as
soon as men have been trained to

Explains Penalty For
Exceeding AAA Quotas
The penalties for growers who ex
ceed their cotton and tobacco allot
ments in 1938 have - been explained
by E. Y. Floyd, AAA executive officer
at State College.
A grower's cotton marketing quo
ta is all the cotton he can grow on
his alloted acreage.
If he plants more than hie allot
ment, there will be a penalty of two
two cents a pound on all cotton sold
in excess of his quota.
In addition, he will forfeit all pay
ments that he would otherwise have
been entitled to under the agricultu
ral conservation program.' He will '
lose his cotton price adjustment pay
ment on the 1937 crop, and jtbe loan
he can get on his 1938 crop" will be
limited to 60 per cent of the amount i
he could have gotten if he had not
exceeded his quota.

age allotment and a poundage quota.
If tobacco is planted in excess of
the allotment, deductions from the
grower's agricultural . conservation
payment will be made at the rate of
10 cents a pound on the average pro
duction of the excess acreage.
Tobacco sold in excess o' the
poundage quota is subject to a pen
alty of one-half the gross value of the
leaf or three cents a pound, which
ever is greater.
If a grower keeps within his acre
age allotment, but produces more
than his poundage quota, he will still
have to pay the penalty if he sells
more- than his quota.
For this reason, growers should J
