Transcribed from enclosed press release: For Immediate Release; CATES HONORED--The North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station has named a newly released variety of pickling cucumber in honor of Addis Cates (left) of Faison. Station Director J. C. Williamson Jr. (right) announced the new cucumber at a meeting in Raleigh. Also present were two of Cates' sons, Curtiss (second from left) of Faison and Addis Jr. (Tad) of Parkton. The Cates family has been in the pickle business since 1898, and they organized the Charles F. Cates and Sons Pickle Company at Faison in 1929. Two other new pickling cucumber varieties developed by the N. C. Agricultural Experiment Station have been named Sampson and Calypso. (N. C. State University photo) --30--Tom Byrd--4/11/1975
