Dixie Blight 244 varieties of 1958-'
crop flue-cured tobacco are made
public hy the U. S. Department j
of Agriculture. At the same,
-time, the Department advised |
' growers that no special pool ar-1
rangements will be made for dis- \
count varieties of tobacco from
this year’s crop.
Flue-cured tobacco is grown
principally in Virginia, North
Carolina, (South Carolina, Georgia
and Florida.
Reduced price supports for the
“undesirable” varieties of flue
cured tobacco, in force for the
first time in 1957, were announc
ed for this year’s crop last No
vember. Strongly supported by
the flue-cured tobacco trade and
fftte-cured growers, the action
taken last year sharply reduced
production of the discount varie
ties and did much, to restore in
ternational confidence in the tra
,ijitionaFftavor and aroma of U. S.
, flue-cured tobacco, the Depart
ment pointed out.
Production of the three dis
count varieties reached a peak in
1956, causing a serious problem
in the flue-cured tobacco trade.
All segments of the industry join
ed to encourage their production
and urged the Department to ad
just lo4p rates downward on the
undesirable tobaccos. Beginning
with thp 1957 crop, the Depart
ment djjd so.
As a/j-esult, less than one-half
of 1 per cent of last year’s total
flue-cured tobacco production was

the saipe close cooperation on the
part of growers is expected again

Community Progress
Program Adopted
Continued from Page 1. Section 1
the community agrees to partici
pate, community organization will
follow. The community organiza
tion will consist of a chairman,
vice chairman, secretary and a
publicity chairman. A commit
tee will be named for each of the
projects the community selects to
work on. Community action and
records will immediately get un
der way.
Contest projects are divided in
to five groups: Educational pro
jects, recreational projects, com
munity projects, farm projects,
and home projects. In each of
these groups there are listed sev
eral projects for the community
to select from. Additional pro
jects which are very much need
ed by the community may be
added. Each community will se
lect at least two projects from
each of the five groups, and a
minimum of twelve projects as a
total. No community will be
limited to twelve projects and
they may go as far beyond that
as they can reasonably concen
trate their activities.
The basis for judging will be on
progress basis. Each community
will keep a scrapbook record of
its activities and accomplish
ments. The Danish type of judg
ing will be used, this means that
communities will be placed in
blue ribbon, red ribbon and white
ribbon classes. The largest
amount of money will go to the
white ribbon winners. Every
community making reasonable
progress will receive some award.
The agriculture workers hope
that every community in Chowan
County will enter the contest.
Every community is bound to
win because of the progress it
makes. People and communities
should begin at once making their
plans and starting work on pro
jects on the home, on the farm,
and in the community.
