Every tobaoco grower in Stokes

PROTECTION TO CONTRACT
In the election on Fr'day to bo
held throughout the Flue-Cure.l
Tobacco Belt tobacco growers
will say whether they wish ;h
protection afforded by this Act
in the acreage control plan. Un
der this Act there is a tax place
upon all tobacco sold except that
produced under contracts or tax
| exemption allotments.
Without this tax on out-siderv,
. tegular contract-signing growers
\vh 0 have reduced their acreage
oad production will have no
protection whatever against over
production by non-signers and
contract-breakers. We must
either approve this Act or look
for low priced tobacco next year.
This election is of great im-
I portance to every man, woman ?:
child in the county. It is of
great importance to the county
and even to the State and no on*;
should take it lightly. The acre
age reduction plan is about the
I only plan that has ever afforded
tobacco growers any real relieff.
The depression is not over ' yet
•and a set back now would be jus:
There are some inequalities in
' the contract and probably more
people should have tax exempt
allotments. These inequalities and
irregularities should be and can
W. W. George
The many friends of Walter W.
George, of Francisco, will be very
sympathetically interested to
know that he in confined to his
home with a stroke of paralysis.
Mr. George is quite young for
this kind of ailment, and it ts
hoped that he may speedily
be ironed out before another ero:
's to be sold. But these small dif
ferences should not be allowed io
stand in the way of the measure
which 13 designed to bring re
lief to all the people. Thi3 plan
has proved its value The prices
for tobacco received in 1933 as
well as in 1931 are a direct
result of this plan. Even the man
who hua paid the tax to sell hi:
tobacco i 3 better off than he
would have been because there
was an acreage reduction plan
and a protecting tax.
If local tobacco growers fail to
vote and carry this election no
one can say what the future will
bring. We will still have our con
tract and be morally obligated to
reduce the acreage and pro
duction but with contract-sign
ers reducing their acreage and
outsiders producing unlimited to- j
bacco, we may look for glutted,
markets and low prie3.

week assisting County Game
Warden T. L. Booth in adjus'.in;
the State's interests in Stokos
game for the closing year.
Mr. Lisk says the propagation

years, that there is better c: ■
operation among the people a:v'
less law violation than ever be
fore, and that more licenses! for

been the case in the past.
Mr. Lisk was enthusiastic over
the Stokes showing under the
management of County Agent T.
Mr. Lisk weighs over 300, but
he says he is the smallest of
nine brothers. Mr. Li'ik has manv
friends here, indeed we think it
