Allotment of Edible
Peanuts Next Year
Is Same as for 1942
However Goal for Peanuts
To Be Crushed Greatly
As the peanut threshing season
draws to a close in the Carolinas
Virginia-Tennessee area, the United
States Department of Agriculture an
nounces national marketing quotas
for edible peanuts in 1943 at 1.255,
800,000 pounds. This figure is equi
valent to an allotment of 1.610,000
acres, the same as in 1942,
In addition to this acreage, how
ever, which is sufficient to supply the
normal needs of the edible trade, the
Secretary of Agriculture has set a
Food-for-Freedcm goal of peanuts
for crushing into oil at 3,890,000
acres, making a total of 5V2 million
acres in the two clasifications, a mil
lion acres more than it is estimated
will be harvested in 1942 and half-a
million acres above the 1942 goal.
Farmers in this area responded
magnificiently to the Department of
Agriculutre's plea for excess pea
nuts in 1942 for crushing into oil,
according to W. T. Parker, manager
of the Growers Peanut Co-Operative,
Inc., the agency which channels
nuts and soybeans into the oil trade
for the Agricultural Marketing Ad
ministration, and added that while
producers are being asked to greatly
increase their peanut production in
1943 USDA officials point out that
peanut marketing quotas divide the
crop between edible and oil purposes,
thus assuring the edible trade a
reasonable amount with which to
operate, and diverting the remainder
into peanut oil.
While the 1943 quota will not be
subjected to a referendum since pea
nut producers in 1941 approved mar
keting quotas for each of the three
years—1941, 1942 and 1943—the De
partment of Agriculture has recom
mended a single price system for pea
nuts in 1943, whether for edible
use or for oil. Such a program would
assure growers of an average return
of between 80 and 85 per cent of
parity, meaning an average price of
about 6 1-5 cents a pound in the old
producing areas of this section.
A program of this type requires
legislation which has already been
introduced by Congressman Pace of
Georgia, in a bill that would suspend
marketing quotas in 1943 and 1944,
with the referendum to be held for
1945. If a single price plan or its
equivalent is not possible, price sup
port programs for peanuts for both
edible and oil purposes, similar to
those now in force, will be continued

All Automobiles Have Been
Enlisted for the Duration
We can’t sell you a new car this Christmas. No; not even for a mil
lion dollars. Because our new cars, along with all others in the nation,
have been called into Uncle Sam’s service for the transportation of our
boys who a e giving everything they’ve got to bring about a glorious vic
tory over three heels—Hitler, Hirohito and Mussolini, if you want
names—who have caused 99 per cent of all the trouble existing in a
war-torn world at this Christmas season.
Your car, too is an important part of
the transportation system needed to win
the war. Therefore, it is up to you—and
to us—to keep it running as long as possi
ble. This is where we come in, for we are
dedicated to the job of maintaining and
servicing your car for the duration.
Possibly we would be better off if we
simply closed our doors until victory is
won. But you good people shared your
patronage with us during good times, and
we are grateful. There, for just as long as
possible, we are going to try to stick it out
and share with you whatever service we
can render to keep your car rolling.
Despite many going into the armed
services, we still have a force of good me
chanics, and they will do their very best
for you, working day and night when nec
essary. We also have some accessories,
antifreeze, and although spare parts are
sometimes hard to get we are doing the
very best we can, while we are always glad
to give you the benefit of our experience in
advising you about any problems concern
ing your car.
Drop in to see us, whether or not you want anything we’ve
got. We’ll be glad to listen to your troubles and tell you some
oi ours. And, whatever many happen, you can always say that
we WERE good folks to do business with.
