APPROVAL TO BILL
Hancock Aids Material
ly In Pushing Measure
Unanimous appioval has been
given the Flannagan tobacco grad
ing bill by the Senate agriculture
committee, and passage by the sen
ate is expected soon.
President Roosevelt has given his
blessings to the measure and the
support of Senator Josiah Bailey has
also been won.
Considerable credit for the ad
vancement of the measure should go
to Congressman Prank Hancock, of
this district, who has worked un
tiringly for its passage since it was
introduced in the House. Mr. Han
cock understands the workings of
the tobacco growing industry and is
well acquainted with the method of
marketing, and it is through his ef»
forts that the bill has been speeded
on its way through Congress.
The bill is designed to protect the
tobacco growers in the marketing
of their tobacco and should prove a
great help to both fanner and tobac-
co warehousemen alike.
