WAVE OF CO-OPERATION
SWEEPS TOBACCO 'BELT
"These Tobacco Gfowers must mean
business down here," said a traveling
salesman to an old farmer who was
sitting with him oil the train'out of
Sumter. "I see by the morning pap
er that twelve meetings were held i
two counties yesterday, and that
growers representing 2,000,000
pounds of tobacco, signed the market
"Yes,"- said the ..fariner, "I have
heard several of my neighbors talking
about the co-operative association,
but I haven't had time to go to a
meeting yet. We certainly (1o need
a better marketing system, particul
arly here in South Carolina, but I
don't understand how the association
can get money for the members be
fore the tobacco is sold." ,
"That ought to be easy if you
have a business proposition," said the
traveling salesman. "If you guaran
tee delivery of your tobacco, you can
surely get a high loan value on such
a salable product."
"Well, I'm going to join the asso
ciation, for we didn't get anything
last season even when we sold," re
plied the grower.
The forty odd meetings held over
the state last week added a large
number of signers to the marketing
contract, and sowed the seeds of vic
tory and real co-operation. A num
ber of- volunteers for the "Pocket
Brigade" were enlisted in every com
munity and road maps"Myrve used in
planning routes for fbcal workers.
Complete returns have -no?' a yet
reached headquarters, but conserva
tive estimates place the total sign-up
at meetings last week well over 5,
000,000 pounds and with fair results
for the numerous workers over the
state the total for the past week
should show at least a minimum of
20 per cent of the state's production.
This county's quota is 2,200,000
pounds and it is going to take a
mighty effort on the part of every
signer to keep us from bping para
sites on some other sectidn. Every
grower in the count, must be given
the chance to sign h.mself to economic
freedom before the campaign closes
on December 21st, and sigiiers should
leave no stone unturned in seeing that
non-members grasp this golden op
portunity to join with them rather
than tp sell against them.
The excuse that we haven't got
time to Agn all the growers here.
doesn't go. We haven't got anything
but time and a mortgage, and it don't
take a million years to sign a con
But little over two weeks now re
mains in which to (o this job, and
South Carolinians must see to it that
enough tobacco is signed to secure our
full quota of directors at the January
election. Delegates'to the general
election will be chosen from each con
munity, one delegate for each million
pounds signed up, so it behooves us
to'have as large a per cent of the to

Why put off a necessary action
which can be (lone today ? Don't ex
pect your neighbors to (10 the job.

to help you. "Every Signer get a
Signer" is not enough here in this
co'Ity. We are going to make this
thing unanimous, so our slogan is
"Every Signer Get a *Signer Every
Day." Enlistment headquarters for
the "Pocket Brigade" are located in
every community. "Join up" now
with your local secretary, and get a
supplly of brown I)ooklets--then send

an actual demonstration of thle lifting
power of the new gas. She was the'

with it, anda she met every test, her
Not only was the 9hip sufficiently
buoyant throughout her long double
journey and safe from any danger of
fire or explosion in air, but she car
ried back to Hampton Roads exactly
the same amount of gas she brought
away. There was no dispersion
through the rubberized fabric of the
bag. "C-7" answered her rudders
perfectly, nodding up anad down over
the city at the will of her nilots with
out "valving" to make her rise and
drop. The official report of the round
trip, as well as of the preliminary
flights at Hampton Roads, shows the
test to have been wholly satisfactory.
Little Sight-Seeing Trip
"C-7" came humming up from the
south early in the day. She signal
ized her arrival by a series of twists
and turns over the Capital, gamboling
like, a playful whale of the air. Her
crew took a birdscye view of the
arms conference, slipping down to a
low altitude for the purpose.
Then they had a close up at the
roof of the Navy Department build

to the naval air station at Anacostia
to come gently to earth with scores
of liusky bluejackets swinging on to
the trailing drag ropes to hold the
light hearted monster to the ground.
Around on inspections. Army and
navy air service folk hastened over
as soon as they heard the motor hum
ming in the air above. Experts from
the bureau of mines rushed out to
get a look at this most significant
aircraft, first in the world, it was
said, to be lifted from earth by any
other gas than hydrogen.
T'iat business done with, the
jackics let go and the blimp "shoved
of" for home, soaring back into the
air as happily as a stranded fish
slides back into water. She circled
the city again a time or two with a
pair of seaplanes rollicking about her
like sparrows pursuing a hawk, then
