' terniglia Seeking
Loyal Strawberry
Growers This Year
\\ - — - -·
ow vermgiia, president of
American Foods, Inc., sellers
of strawberries in the area
and throughout the Eastern
half of the United States, told
a group of about 100 growers
that he was looking for loyal
berry producers at a meeting
in the Tabor City school cafe
teria Friday night.
"Whether it's five, fifty or
150, I want berry growers to
sell with us who will start
the season and end the season
with us. It's the only way to
market berries in an orderly
manner and know from day to
day about what volume and
quality to expect," he said.
Cerniglia pointed out that
last year, a year of short sup
ply of strawberries, that some
growers left American Foods
in Tabor City to sell on vari
ous auction markets. He said
that in a year of short supply,
auction markets might very
well have days and seasons in
which they paid more for ber
ries that American Foods
earned the grower. But that
growers who stuck with the
method of selling done by A
merican Foods year in and
year out would exceed the
prices paid by most auctions.
He said that Louisiana this
year would harvest about 8000
acres of berries as compared
with some 3500 a year ago.
And that if they enjoyed and
good growing season, this
would be a year oi plenty in
the strawberry ^new and
that auctions «stems would
>-ave difficult? cotapating With
American Food·* price·.
"We want growers to sign
with us to sell every berry
throughout the season. Those
who do will be our preferred
customers. Those who sell a
load here and a load there
cannot expect the same con
I sideration as these who sell
I their entire crop with us. We
will take these hit and miss
growers' berries when we need
them and refuse them when
we don't need them. But those
who sell every day with us,
we will sell those berries for
them every day at the highest
> possible market regardless (X
ι how plentiful the supply of
berries is," Carniglia said.
Stanley Taylor, an execu
tive of American Foods, spoke
briefly to the growers. Enter
tainment was provideed by the
Twin States Trio. The dinner
meal was served to all in at
tendance who were guests of
American Foods.
Cerniglia said that every of
fort would be made to have
adequate personnel in Tabor
City this season to handle the
berries and indicated that he
was not completely satisfied
with the personnel in Tabor
City a year ago.
He completed his talk with
a poem which he had compos
ed himself that indicated some
of the trials and tribulations
that a seller of berries wit
Leonard Sansome, who man
aged the market in Tabor City
two years ago and was on the
market part of the time last
season, was present and re
newed acquaintances with
growers whom he knew.
The American Foods per
sonnel flew to Tabor City from
Famberton, N. J., where they
operate a similar market and
had had a meeting of growers,
A similar meeting was het£
with glowers in Bnrgaw, N. C.,
on Saturday night. Two other
such grower meetings have
been held in the berry grow
ing section of Florida where
they operate strawberry hand
ling facilities.

We surely did not always agree with the I
President on his policies nor with his means
of implementing those policies; in fact we
were quite frequently critical.
But that is one of the wonderful things
about the American way of life. We can still

the heads of our government and make that
disagreement known while still maintaining
our loyalty both to our nation and to our

with Mr. Kennedy, one and all had to admire

While we did disagree frequently with
Mr. Kennedy, we admired him tremendously
and respected him as much, counting our

"the loyal opposition."
We mourn his passing grievously and

Dear Sir:
Concerning our appoint

In order to be prompt. I
arrived at two-thirty. The
elevator was standing open
—but no operator in sight.
Never mind . . . probably

I'll just get in and wait.
Suddenly the door closed
and the thing shot up as if
it were caught in some ter
rible up-drait. It stopped
some pretty young thing got

. . . and I thought somebody
cut the cables! Ο ho! So thin
is one of those Do It Your
self models! OK. I want to
go to floor six—there is one
floor underneath . . . five
and one equals six ... I
punched number five, and it
stopped at floor five. Stupid
Machine! One more floor,
pleasr. I pushed number one
. . . and landed in the boiler
room. It went off and left
me. As I climbed s'owly
back to the main floor, I
realized what was wrong
with the thing ... It rouldft't

This Is floor two ... If I
