NEW FEUE-CCRED TOBACCO
VARIETIES ARE DEVELOPED
Two new varieties of flue-cured
tobacco have been developed by the
N. C. Agricultural Experiment Sta
tion, in cooperation with the Bureau
of Plant Industry of the U. S. De
partment of Agriculture, it is an
nounced by Dr. L. D. Baver, Experi
ment Station director of N. C. State
College. One of the varieties now
bearing the name "No. 401," will
likely add $40 to $50 per acre to the
income of tobacco grpwers, as com
pared with a number of other va
rieties they are growing, Dr. Baver
Both the No. 401 variety and the
No. 400, the other new variety, have
some resistance to diseases, the re
search leader said. The No. 400 is
highly resistant to the black rot dis
ease. The black root rot infests areas
in the Old Belt (Piedmont area) and
the No. 400 variety is not recom
mended for the New Bright or Bor
The No. 401 variety, however, is
recommended for all flue-cured
belts. Dr. Baver said. It may be
planted anywhere in the flue-cured
area. The No 401 variety was de
veloped from a cross between the
Cash and No. 400 varieties, and both
of these varieties show some resist
ance to leaf spot diseases.
The State College official also
announced that the Experiment Sta
tion and the Bureau of Plant In
dustry have developed a very satis
factory variety that is resistant to
the Black Shank disease. This va
riety, as yet un-named, may be re
leased for the 1943 season.
"A resistant variety to Granville
Wilt and Mosiac also appears in
sight," said Dr. Baver. "The three
diseases ? Black Shank, Granville
Wilt and Mosiac?cost the tobacco
farmers of the flue-cured area well
over a million dollars annually."
New varieties of red clover have
produced from one-fourth to one ton
more hay per acre than varieties

Farmers Urged To

Future Tire Quotas
Will Be Decreased
Warning that tire quotas will have
to bo cut in September from the Au
gust- level, the Office of Trice Ad
ministration August 21st called upon
the local War Price and Rationing
Boards for the "strictest possible in
tempretatiqni" of a recent amend
ment to the tire rationing regula
tions restricting truck eligibility to
vehicles essential to the war effort
or public health and safety.
A letter to the boards explains that
the War Production Board, which al
locates rubber for military, civilian
ind other uses has notified OPA that
allotments for tires must follow
downward trend for the remaining
months of 1942 in order to stay with
in the amount of rubber ear-marked
for the purpose.
Although the reduced allocation
follows a seasonal pattern of prior
years when truck tire use tapered
in the fall and winter months, it
lomes at a time when war produc
tion and kindred activities are keep
ing many heavy vehicles at work
night and day. It was to provide tires
for these and other essential trucks
that OPA late in July made a change
in its rationing regulations which
a ill result in denying tires to an es
timated 200,000 vehicles carrying al
?oholoc beverages, soft drinks, can
lies. furs, and other luxury goods
During the past 5 months when
juotas have been increased monthly

ice of carrying over unfilled appli
