Cards Are Here
Tobacco allotment cards, for the
use of producers at the warehous
es for the sale of tobacco, will be
received in the County Agent's of
fice during this week and will be
filled out and ready for delivery
prior to the opening of the border
All allotment cards will have
the contract signer's name and se
rial number, and also the maxi
mum number of pounds that can
be sold in 1935 under the contract.
All contract signers can have as
many allotment cards as they de
sire for themselves and their ten
ants, provided requests are put in
immediately for these cards. Un
less requests for more than one
cards are, received before the cards
are made out, only one card will
be Issued under each contract. All
contract signers are asked to im
mediately notify the County A
gent's office, if they wish more
than one card.
The holders- of allotment cards
must, keep them and not lose, or
allow them to be lost, as it will be
somewhat difficult to obtain new
cards in place of those lost.
- At this time it is understood
that there will be no sale of allot
ment cards for tobacco produced
over that allowed under the con
tract. No one will be allowed to
sell tobacco on any allotment card
except the contract signer and his
