C., Thursday, July 1, *043 * * * TOBACCO MEN SET DATES OF OPENINGS i DATES OF SELLING ON ALL , MARKETS SET FOR 1C43 ■9 [J 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 s hours in length and that no piles e should exceed 350 pounds in e weight, instead of 400 pounds e I 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 it , 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 S .Commodit Credit Corporation had . j acquired an average of 22 per n cent of the last four flue-cured crops. "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 -j quantity." 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 by exporters, and 208,426,000 , pounds are still in the hands of I the corporation, Carrington re ported. • *' ' '• t ' !
