average of *21 M per hundred lbs.,
diroctnr* of tho Tobacco Grower* Co
operative Association arc rejoicing
that in South Carolina a* in Kentneky
tho grower* receive double the price
which wae given them on lat year’*
opening markets.
The director* of the association are
confident that the organise^ grower*
with a Highly developed leaf depart
ment, ample itorage plants and re
drying facilities to turn out 1,900,000
pounds of tobacco daily will be en
abled to secure better prices than
those unorganized farmers who are
grading their tobacco for the (I net
time and are Belli eg without storage
or redrying facilities.
That prices on the South Carolina
market* fail to give satisfaction to
many of the grow an Is evident from
the urgent reqaeot of grower!
throughout the state to reopen the
membership book* of the association.
A committee of director* from the
association have decided upon (hit
action in view of the fact that 600
now members joined the marketing
mwcuuki on uoiy 01K ana Otfnui
Isctlon with conditions on the aaall
or markets Indicated that there wtU
be a record-breaking landslide to the
big cooperative movement should the
unorganised growess have another
opportunity to better their piece* by
joining with 78,000 members of the
association from tbs three states, who
have united for orderly marketing of
this year's crop.
It is generally expect*^ that tbs
