The N o r t h ' Carolina Peanut
Growers Association joined with
the producer organizations from
Virginia, Georgia, Florida, andic:
Alabama and with peanut sheller
organizations from North Carolina
and Virginia, and Georgia, Florida,
and Alabama, in opposing an ap
peal to import Virginia type pea
nuts, announced Joe S. Sugg, Exec
utive Secretary of the association.
According to Sugg, the Nut Salt
ers Association had filed an appeal
before the United States Tariff
Commission for the importation of'
Virginia type peanuts. .The Tariff
Commission set a public hearing
for July 31st, at which time testi
mony by all interested parties was
presented. The Nut Saltcrs claim
ed that due to the short crop of
Virginia type peanuts in L75 that
the supplies of Virginia type pea
nuts would be exhausted prior to
November 1st when the new crop
is expected to ccme in.
The producer and sheller asso
ciations opposed the importations
on the basis that it was their belief
that there were ample peanuts in
inventory to take care of the salt-
Ierr' demands and that no imports
should be authorized at this time.
I The matter now rests in the hands
' of the Tariff Commission who will
: make their recommendations to the
