warehouses during the first few
hours of selling. Tobacco buyers,
many of them nuw on the market this
year, hung 0wels around their
necks and waded into their tasks like
trojans They were stepping lively
despite crowded aisles and a depress
Previous opening-day records
Were- shattered today when between
1.400 and 1,500 farmers from at least
six counties placed approximately
000.000 pounds of the golden leaf on
the floors for sale. The market is
taring a big block as the-selling hours
approach a close this afternoon, but
there is plenty of floor space left and !
farmers continue fairly heavy de- j
Later reports, falling in the unof
ficial class, stated that the price
trend continued to hold a fairly even
keel as the selling period progressed
well into mid-afternoon.
Unofficial reports coming from
one of the larger markets early this
morning stated that the price trend
at that time was around 15 cents,
but that the quality of the offerings
was of an inferior type.
Discussing the possible effect the
current prices would have on a con
trol program vote, farmers were di
vided in their opinions. "There is no
profit in tobacco at a price below 25
j cents a pound," one farmer com- i
| men ted. But it will be difficult to J
masses of farmers if the price aver
ages around eighteen or nineteen
cents," another farmer commented.
General business, while expressing
no great satisfaction, was apparent
ly pleased that the price trend was
no lower than it was, and offered the
opinion that the prices are possibly
fair considering the size of the crop.
Observers, mingling with the
throngs, gained the impression that
the Williamston market had made
possibly one of its strongest impres
sions on an opening day, and that
the stage is set for one of its biggest
seasons in history.
Weather conditions despite high
mercury readings, were favorable
for the sales this morning, but rain
started falling shortly after the noon
