GROWERS OF BURLEY TOBACCO
PLEASED WITH POOLING PLAN
Many Producers Receive More Money As First Payment Than

Good Start In The Lexington District.
Lexington. Ky.. Jan. 30.?About

entire crop last year, It was said at
the offices of the association.
Thousands of interested tobacco
growers from many counties were in
Lexington to witness the opening of
Lhfi hnimgft tO the pooled crop,
as the houses in the other counties of
the Burley district will open next Mon
lay and the managers and bookkeep
ers and graders for these other coun
ties were all in attendance on the Lex

ings of the new system. Other pool
warehouses In the district will be open
No figures as to individual crop de
liveries were available. The first
check, made out in Kentucky as an ad
vance on a Burley tobacco crop under
the new co-operative system of mar
keting was given to Albert F. Shouse.
a farmer, magistrate and prominent [
Fayette county farmer. Mr. Shouse
delivered 11.235 pounds, mosr of it com!
mon tobacco, and was given an ad->
vance of $1,109.85. an average of $9.95 I
a hundred, indicating a loan value, as '
fixed by the Louisville bankers and j
tobacco experts some time ago. of'
$19.90 a hundred. That value, it is i
generally conceded, was conservative. |
and members of the association de
clared their expectation that the pool
ed crop would bring more than .has1
been paid for the non-pooled crop at
the few warehouses which were not
turned over to the Burley association. j
An Optimistic Opening
The board of directors, in session
late Thursday, adopted a resolution
warmly commending President Stone
and director of warehouses Ralph M.
Barker and their assistants for the sue
cessful start given the biggest business
in Kentucky, which haii 57.000 mem
bers. controls nearly 190,000.000 pounds
of tobacco and is the owner of about
120 receiving plants, warenouses and

The exact amount of tobacco deliv
ered at the Lexington warehouse?. In

of each of the plants, follows:

the most optimistfr .,?rkpr of the as
soetation could have expected.
"We opened in Lexington this morn
ing with ten houses in operation." Di
rector Barker said. "I visited all the
any tobacco market opening work
more smoothly. I talked personally
with many of the growers and found
not one dissatisfied, but on the con
trary entirely satisfied with the grad
ing of their crops and the method of
handling The same.
"One grower from Eubans, Ky., af
ter observing the system employed in
the Lexington market, signed up his
1921 crop and the five, succeeding
crops with the association.
"We were accompanied on our rounds
by representatives of some of the lar
ger manufacturers, who expressed
themselves as pleased with the system
of grading adopted by the association/'

J. R. Jones, the preacher-farmer

Martin L. Harris, director at large
from Indiana, and chief or the field ser
vice division Joseph Passonneau ex
pressed satisfaction with the start.
System Starts Off Well
President James C. Stone said the
new system started ofT well. "If the
first day is any indication of the suc
cess of the new system of Betling," said
| Mr. Stone, "there is no doubt that co-|
operative marketing has come to stay
and the-falth of the growers during
the preliminary campaign is fully jus
tified. especially by the faith of the
bankers and business people in?ihe
plan, once it has been pat into opera
tion. If the growers are as well sat
isfied all over the district as they have
expressed themselves after the deliv
ery of the crops in Lexington, it will
be difficult to keep the growers out of
the association next year."
Redrying contracts have neen made
with three large re-drying concerns
for the handling of any tobacco that
the association may cesire to have re
drfed. These concerns are the O. F.
