Pott Off!*) at Farmvflhs r Act of Harsh pill at tS N. C., 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 way.
