TV Antennas on Tobacco Road 1 This is anofKer, of. a -se- .ries.of articles from Harry Golden's latest bestseller, 2 Cents Plain" There was a' movie not long ago which portrayed a turn- ut'e. bled-down ol' South. called1 It was Baby Doll, and, far as life as is 'concerned, Jit was a good movie. But, as the con- as south is cerned, it was a scream! And the best proof of .this is ____ that the'movie played 'all'over the south with- out a ripple. When" you are poor you do not want your early-beginnings paraded be- fore you. .But when you are rich you exaggerate those struggles' and speak with pride of the tunes you got up at 4 o'clock in the morning to milk the cowstand deliver the newspaper, and the south is rich and getting richer every min- te." Ttiere is no plantation house with a baby crib. Not on your life. The south today is a churning, whirling, sprawl- ing, brawling area of huge'ho- tels and Du Pont and Celan- ese and guided missiles and the hydrogen bomb, and of. three quarters of a million people lining the streets for the retail merch- ants' Thanksgiving -day pa- GETTKE GENUINE mm mm laryttt StWag TOILET TANK BALL Noby. running toilets can watte ever 1000 of water a day.

No But'there is an interesting story behind this.'Many.of my fellow liberals in the north love to hang onto the "Tobac- co. Road" idea of the south. And the white supremacists of the south cling to the idea of Uncle Remus, rolling in laughter "under the: magnolia tree. -that's' all gone. There's no .Tobacco Road and there's no plantation -and there's no Uncle Remus. To- bacco Road is full of TV an- tennas, with an electric wash- ing '-machine on every back porch, and Mrs. Jeeter Lester is not begging ol' Dude to bring her a turnip. She is get- ting dressed up for the Tues- day Afternoon Garden club or the League "of Women Vot- ers.

They play hide-and-seek. in an old plan- tation house which now houses The Carolina Israelite, and in the scuffle Dubinsky -succeeds in getting Baby Doll to sign the new contract on behalf of Balance Agriculture with. In- dustry, Incorporated: The big scene, however, is where the mayor of 'Kenil- worth'is dedicating the new factory: ".We are mighty proud of the new factory, .Mr. Eli. and on behalf of all your, good neighbors of Kenilworth I hereby hand you this certifi- cate which makes your com- pany, water-free, power-free, and tax-free for the first five years of your op- erations; and one'thing more, Mr..-Eli, and -I'm certainly proud to be able to say. this to you-all, we are a very peace- ful little town here with no trouble and you. can be 'sure of: one never be bothered by them union fel- lows down here Just then Baby Doll rushes onto the grandstand, followed by.
