WE SAT IT AGAIN
In oar SPofLlGHT of September,
1984, the year following the breaking
of the backbone of DEPRESSION,
and the operation of the tobacco mar
keting quotas for growers, we penned
an editorial, "The Fanner Cannot
'Plant AH He Dora Pleases' and
Prosper," and we herewith take ad
vantage of the opportunity provided
by the pending referendum for to
bacco quotas to say it again:
"The rapidity with which the first
tobacco signup campaign was carried
forward in this State to a successful
conclusion was the most promising
sign observed in farming sections by
leaders for generations, and the same
fihe spirit of signing of the crop
limitation contracts and the strict
observance of these agreements was
sufficient proof that the fanner has
learned that he may 'plant all he dura
pleases', but he may also expect low
prices to obtain in such an event.
'The farmer views the future with
something of serenity in his face, this
year, for though he was forced to
mortgage his home, after savings of
a lifetime were exhausted, it has been
saved, for the government has come
to his relief with its farm credit pro
gram, and the grim spectre of fore
closure no longer stares at him.
"He realizes that improvement in
price for the 1933 crop, due to the
tobacco marketing quotas, will save
him, he will pay his taxes, his store
account, the wife and children will
have some new additions to their de
pleted wardrobes, and - he will have
some cash with which to meet the
long winter ahead, and he is iltcpmg
again o' nights and whistling cheer
fully as he figures his tobacco allot
ment card and cotton contract.
"The tobacco crop in 1833, the first
year of the control quota program,
in North Carolina brought 376,000,000
as compared with $32,000,000 the
previous year, 1932."
A HARD SCHOOL, BUT . .
Lest we forget the fateful year of
1939, when we let down the ban and
decided to once" again plant all the
tobaceo we could, and as a reminder
to those who are inclined to be in
different to the pendtag referendum,
we point a warning finger to the
statistical record of North Carolina's
tobacco acreage and average from
1936 - 1939:
Tear: Acres Averej* lb.
1936 597,066 28-0
?1937 684*00 24.0
1038 61X100 22.6
1930 851400 15.8
If a fanner can make the same
money on 10 acres of tobacco that
he can on 16, why in the world will
he consider planting the 15 acres T
There is no logical mswtar to this
question, but "he'll do it every time."
Another point in favor of the amallw
acreage is that the farmer, faced by
a drastic labor shortage and exorbi
tant housing easts, stands . a better
chance of housing the 10 acres any
