Tabor City Leaf Market
Approaching Large Goal By H. A. STALLINGS TABOR CITY, Sept. 21—The Tabor City tobacco market steadily is approaching its antic ipated goal of 8,000,000 pounds for the season; There are four warehouses, which, together with their op erators, are: Carolina and New Farmers, Roscoe Coleman and Mrs. Harriett Lewis Sikes and Garrell’s No. 1 and No. 2, B. Altman Garrell. In addition to the two warehouses here, Ros coe Coleman operates three in Mebane and one in Boone. The auctioneers are Harry Nunn and Dewey Huffines. Na tional publicity has been accord ed Huffines by his appearance in advertisements for Lucky Strike cigarettes and on the radio. Buyers are on the market rep resenting Liggett Myers, Export, Imperial, American, Reynolds, Reidsville, Virginia companies Your USED FATS ARE Still Needed! says KATHARINE FISHER, Director of Good Housekeeping Institute We ’re still not out of the woods, by any means. There is still a fat shortage all over the world. Here is what Mr. Clinton P. Anderson, Secre tary of Agriculture, says about the situation: “It is still neces sary to conserve every pound of used fat, since the over-all fat supply situation is little better now than it was last year.” So... all of you women who have done such a mar velous job...please, keep up the good work. It’s the only way we can beat the shortage. Remember, every pound of salvaged fat helps. KECP'TMMMfr IN YOUR USED FATS American Fat Salvage Committee, Inc. ! together with licensed specula tors. The market has one inde pendent buyer, A. V. Hall. The Tobacco Board of Trade has B. Altman Garrell as its president and John W. Barlow as secretary. Barlow also is sales supervisor. There are 27 mem bers, an exceptionally fine show ing for a town this size. The first tobacco warehouse in Columbus county, the Caro lina. was built in Tabor-City. Last year the Tabor City mar ket led the Border belt in av erage price and ranked second in the flue-cured territory. While it is a minor sale, as tobacco sales go, one basket on the Tabor City market sold Wednesday for 72 cents a pound. Selling a basket for that is like hitting the coming back drive in golf. In addition to its importance in tobacco marketing, Tabor City makes itself felt in civic organizations. It has Rotary and Civitan clubs, a Woman’s club, a Pioneer Study club, and Amer ican Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts. It plans to organize a unit of the National Guard, Friday night, September 26, a fish fry and jamboree being arranged for the occasion. Tabor City also is jubilant over the announcement a highway contract in its territory is to be let soon. This city prides itself on of fering a cash market for what ever is grown in its territory. Last year found it leading the world as a sweet potato market. It now has eleven potato curing and storage warehouses and two dehydration plants. In 1946, it YOUR FUR COAT . .

The Book Of Knowledge (Department:— FAMILIAR THINGS) HOW COAL BEGAN Although coal today is very important to the world, it was not much used until compara tively recent times. Wood was easier to get, and we did not know what a treasure was hid den in the earth. All that was realized was that here and there on the surface a black stuff was found which could be burned as fuel. The Greeks are thought to have used some coal over 2000 years ago. The Romans, during their 400 years in Britain, used a little coal, and the tools they osed are still being discovered, rhe famous Marco Polo, the Venetian traveler who made his first journey to China in 1271, mentions in his book, as one of the curiosities of Chinese life, that he found a sort of black stone used as fuel. It was strange to him, for Italy has so little coal that she is, for practical purposes, coal-less. But let us see how coal was formed, and where it comes from. It is the fossilized re mains of vegetation which flourished on the earth in far back Carboniferous times when the great “coal trees” grew. Coal is always formed in lay ers, or seams, and these seams sometimes rest on beds of clay which the miner calls the un derclay. The fossilized roots of the ancient vegetation which has been changed into coal are often found penetrating the un derclay, showing that it was the bed of soil upon which trees and plants once flourished. The time that must have gone to the making of coal-fields is beyond all our imagining. Try to think of vegetation flourish ing for long periods and then being buried as the surface of the land was lowered. Water Coal is the fossilized remains of great trees which flourished on the earth long ago. After coal has been cleaned and prepared for distribution, it is loaded into railroad cars. Every effort is made to avoid dust and breakage so that clean coal of uniform size is delivered._____ I rushed in, and new soil was | formed at the bottom. After this had continued for a long time, so that the layer of de cayed vegetation had become deeply buried, some fresh movement of the earth raised the bed. Plants grew again and formed a resh layer of vegeta tion. The land again sank and the vegetation was buried. This occurred again and again, for we find seams of coal separated'from each other by layers of clay, or shale, or sandstone or limestone. Such processes have gone on for such a length of time that these lay ers of coal exist as deep as 12,000 feet, or over two miles down. Some of the coal in South Wales is almost as deep below the surface as the top of Mont Blanc is above it. It has been calculated that it would require at least 1000 years to make a bed of coal a foot thick. The rock between also took along time to form. A great authority, Professor Edward Hull, once pointed out that the laying-down of the South Wales coal-fields must have needed 640,000 years.

Today And Tomorrow (Continued from Page Four) they came to the conclusion that they must wage k diplomatic campaign to prevent Russia from expanding her sphere, to prevent her from consolidating it, and to compel her to contract it. But they failed to see clearly that until the Red Army evacuat ed eastern Europe and withdrew to the frontiers of the Soviet Union, none of these objectives could be achieved. Had they seen clearly the sig nificance of the military situa tion, they would not have com mitted the United States to any thing in eastern Europe while the Soviet government had the power to oppose it, while the United States had no power to enforce it. They wohld have taken and noted the pledges and promises to respect the indepen dence and the freedom of the nations of eastern Europe which Stalin gave them at Yalta. But they would not have committed the United States to a guaranty that Stalin would keep his pledges while his army was oc cupying eastern Europe. For since the United States could not make good this guaranty, the onus of the viola tion of the pledges was divided between the Russians, who broke them, and the Americans who had promised to enforce them and did not. It would have been far better to base our pol icy on the realities of the bal ance of power; to let Stalin, who made the promises which he alone could fulfill, take the whole responsibility for breaking them; to concentrate our effort on treaties of peace which would end the occupation of Europe. For if, and only if. we can bring about the withdrawal of the Red Army from the Yalta line to the new frontier of the Soviet Union —and simultane ously, of course, the with drawal of the British and Ameri can armies from continental Europe—can a balance of pow er be established which can then be maintained. For after the withdrawal, an attempt to return would be an invasion— an open, unmistakable act of military aggression. Against such an aggression, the power of the United States to strike the vital centers of Russia by air and by amphibious assault would stand as tne opposing aim deterrment force. And until trea ties are agreed to which bring about the withdrawal of the red Army, the power of the United States to strike these vital centers should be built up for the express purpose of giving weight to our policy of ending the military occupation of Europe. All the other pressures of the Soviet Union at the “constantly shifting geographical and politi cal points,” which Mr. X is so concerned about—in the Middle East and in Asia—are, I contend, secondary and subsidiary to the fact that its armed forces are in the heart of Europe. It is to the Red Army in Europe, there fore, and not to ideologies, elec tions, forms of government, to Socialism, to Communism, to free enterprise, that a co.rectly conceived and soundly planned Dolicy should be directed.

He cashed the ace of trumps, and to guard against three spades to the queen in one hand, he led a small spade from his own hand. If East originally held the queen ten-three of spades, the contract would not be made. But West won the second spade trick with the queen and led the king of hearts, which declarer ruffed in dummy with the five of spades.
