While scores of events of entertaining nature are being planned for the visitors, the committee in charge of the celebration has not forgotten that the chief purpose of the celebration is to honor the leading crop—tomatoes. With this, in mind, prizes are being offered which will attract thousands of pounds of the growers' best tomatoes. These will be on display at prominent places at all times during the celebration and their owners will be rewarded by cash awards following the judging of the exhibits September 2. Another important addition this year to the program is the "Tomato King." For the first time since the celebration was inaugurated, the leading tomato grower will receive fitting recognition for his achievements with tomato plants and the good green earth. Chosen in a contest entered by more than fifty of Morgan county's leading growers, Harry C. Luttrell was awarded the coveted title of king of the third annual Tomato Festival. Luttrell scored seventy-eight out of a possible hundred points. The scoring took into consideration the condition of his patch, the use of good practices, maintenance of or-, panic matter in the soil, insect and i Tomato Festival Queen Miss Izetta Jewel, Jr., daughter of Izelta Miller, Kingwoocl, W.
