The 15 per cent reduction sched
uled for 1935 is only one half as
much as the reduction last year, he
continued, and the rental and ad
justment payments will be scaled
down to I one half the previous
amount. - -1 t - .- '
However,- the' rentals will .'con
tinue at the rate of $17.50 an acre
on the land retired from tobacco
cultivation. : The adjustment .pay
ments will be 6 1-4 per cent of the
sale value of the 1935' crop.' The
deficiency payments will be at the
rate of one ent a pound on the a
mount by which a grower fails to
produce his allotment. ' ,
- The'' rental payments " Willi be
made after compliance with con-,
tract is checked, Floyd said. Last
year they were made shortly after,
the contracts were signed. ,
For growers with a base of less
than four acres, the rate of the ad
justment payment will be increas
ed, in accordance witto the terms
of the contracts, to a maximum of
12 per cent of the value, of the
crop, Floyd added. .
