" 'i 4a Farmers have been allowed 'tY

Evidence of the proof of the' soundness tt.

j' , counts," including taxes, tia purchase "of m farm equipment,
.automobiles for pleasure and business, the I ilding and repair
i lng of homes that' can be seen along any i 'ghway in Duplin
Coun.!. For these reasons eachand every f. jrmer should con
sider very carefully, before he decides not to uas? a vote or the
manner in which he will fote. ' ' .,'('" - '
I. , 'The "flexibility of the Program can end will allow the

been done fpr them but also will not give those ln authority .

r-U the Tobacco Control Act should fall at the hands, of
the farmers themselves there Is strong -probability that helpful
measures that have been taken, to improve th prices of other
farm commodities will also fail. The Government is not trying
: to thrust anything down the throat of the farmer, it is giving
- the farmers of the, South the first real government help and
'protection they have 'ever had and tt i ip : to the farmers
' to do tl)elr part towards continuing the improvement. A report
.made by the Brooking Institute 'a few days aTfcro. re vealed that;
the high riw xrf the tobacco: ia a Power Weapon in Market

control measure to continue and praised the New Deal Agency.
