DATES OF SELLING ON ALL
, MARKETS SET FOR 1C43
s Opening dates of the tobacco
markets hve been set by the to
bacco association and the old belt
g'will start selling on September 20.
: First selling of new crop tobacco
> will be the Florida belt which
r. , will open on July 27.
n Other opening dates of various
belts are: Border belt, August 5;
g East Carolina Belt, August 24:
e Middle Belt, September 13; dark
flue cured belt in Virginia, De
e' cember 6.
The flue cured dates in general
were set later than the times
which had been urged by growers
is and warehousemen.
The association re-elected A. B.
l ' L Cnrrington, .Jr.. of Danville, s>?,
P president and adopted recommen
dations by the marketing eor.i
--!f | mittee designed to guatd against.
-t - too much haste in auctioning.
| One of these recommendations;
- provided that the buying inter
ajest3 be instructed to see thf>T
sales of not more than 360 piles
Jan hour are made, except that
lk buyers may finish the crop on
which they are working at the
end of the day if this amounts to
not more than eight or ten piles.
| The other recommendation pro
vided that sales in 1943 on each
market in South Carolina, North
Carolina and Virginia be five
hours in length and that no piles
should exceed 350 pounds in
weight, instead of 400 pounds
as last year.
Carrington, in his annual re
port, said there would be a "tre
mendous shortage of labor not
only with the growers and the
, warehousemen, but also in the
I process of the 1913 crop.
"It would be the duty of every
j one connected with this associa
. tion," he added, "to handle tho
crop in such a manner that no
„ detriment should accrue to the
growerg and no harm be done to
the food crops which are vitally
necessary for the war effort.
Carrington reported that the
.Commodit Credit Corporation had
. j acquired an average of 22 per
n cent of the last four flue-cured
"If W2 estimate the 1943 crop
at 800,000,000 pounds," he said,
"it is now thought tha tthe gov
, ernment will want to acquire ap
proximately 39 per cent of this
Of the 725,000.000 green
pounds of flue cured leaf purchas
ed by the CCC, 407,962,000
pounds have been shipped to lend
lease companies, 42,000,000
, pounds repurchased for shipment

Mr. N. E. Pepper.
I just received the Reporter
'this afternoon and sure was glad
jto get it, as I have received only
a couple since I left California,
however, 1 didn't send you a
change of address when I left,
Moffett Field, Calif., so you inay |
send it to the above address. |
Say, Mr. Pepper, I understand
some of the Stokes county boys |
are stationed here in California.
You might slip my address in one
of your issues and let them know
I'm stationed here and might be i
able to meet some of them as you i
know it is always good to meet a |
a fellow from your home stats. |
So I hope they keep the home j
front going as I understand we
are going to divide the oceans be
tween the Japs and the U. S. A.:
