Their ad dresses were broadcast from the assembly room of the Federal USO club, where tonight’s ses sions conc.uded the meeting. Port Work Reviewed i: his capacity as chairman of (he Po.ts authority, Page review ed the work of that body _ since its inception in March, 1945. He assured the association and the • radio audience that the authority was "making • every effort to turn; its dreams cf modern ports into realities as soon as passible.” Charging that development of the stae's water-borne transpor tation has been neglected, Page told of extensive development: planned or underway at other At lantic and Gulf ports. As an ex ample, he cited the progress be ing made by Charleston, S. C. A $15,000,000 program is being pushed and, in addition, the Pal-; rnetto sca-side city has the use j o' the Army’s former great port of embarkation. The South Carolina j Ports autnority, he added, has an , operations fund of $43,000 a year. North Carolina’s authority, he add ed. "does not have a cent.” He told of the creation of the j North Carolina State Ports autho- j ntv through enabling legislation | El the last session of the legisla- j lure.

Surveys Underway “The preliminaries of a com prehensive survey of North Caro kna's potential water-bourne ton nage have been put underway by exeperieneed representatives of “”o nationally-known engineering firms—Robert and Company, of Atlanta, and the Frederick R.

This will in clude cost estimates of docks, ware houses, bulkheads, roadways, rail road trackage and other many faci lities that go to make a modern port,” Page declared. After all surveys and studies are completed it will then be the pur pose of the authority to see that the needed port facilities are financed and erected. Under terms of the act under which it functions, it may seek a direct grant from the Fed eral government or through the Reconstruction Finance corpora tion or through the sale of self liquidating bonds, Page said. The Farmer’s Plight Whitfield, an outstanding authority of farm matters and him self a highly successful agricultu rist, discussed what he described as “the unfortunate position of the farmer in today’s economy.” “The farmer, and this is particu larily true of the men who till the soil in our section of the state, is at the bottom of the economic lad der. He is, essentially, a producer, yet as a producer he has little or no say over the markets he serves. “Compare this with the manu facturer, also a producer, of fabri cated goods. He had a decided voice in his markets, and for that reason is on - reasonably secure economic footing,” Whitfield said. Farming is a business, Whitfield continued, and as a business the farm needs the one economic step that will place it on a par with other businesses — in this instance, Whitfield declared — processing plants to assist in the control of nis markets. “Given the means to process his products, hence to remove himself from the vagaries of the market, -he farmer can end his present plight of being at the mercy of ouyers who know that farm pro ducts are highly perishable, hence of temporary value.” Urges Cooperatives As a solution, Whitfield urged the newspaper publishers to aid and encourage farmers of their res pective district in the formation of bigger and better cooperatives, both in the form of marketing faci lities, but also in processing plants. He included livestock in his over-all discussion of farm products. Prior to the radio broadcast, an afternoon session heard a talk by Ed Anderson of Brevard, publisher of five Western North Carolina weekly papers on the subject of the weekly and its stature in the field of national advertising. Anderson asked the publishers of weeklies to give serious thought to the matter of a campaign to ac quaint national advertisers with the potency of the rural, weekly press as a medium of advertising. “There are approximately 9,000 weeklies and 600 small dailies in the United States, representing 52 per cent of the nation’s population, yet they manage to get less than one-half of one per cent of the total rational advertising budget,” An derson declared.
