L rices; Upward .'Trend NotecL
By ROBERT E. "WILLIAMS
(From The News and Observer)
Washington, Sept 25.--Despite
'. . minimum of tangible results, a de
legation of tobacco. : growers, ware
housemen and .members - of Con-
V Kress left here tonight somewhat
- more hopeful of the future trend of
' flue-cured . tobacco ;; prices than
when they arrived
. - The delegation, which was ae
, companfed. by; Governor Ehring
hai's. held three: conferences, one
' this morning with AAA officials,
another this afternoon with repre
sentatives of the large tobacco buy.
. 'era and a, third tonight ; among
;. - themselves. - i
' .' , , - ' Seasonal Hope
: : ,The spirit of hope was-due chief
ly to an apparent general senti
ment that the slight upturn in
: - prices noted this week will likely
A continue. It was pointed out that
prices-after October' 1 have been
. in the past 23.5 per cent above
priced prior to that date.- That
' would mean this year an average
ii of about 21.5. cents from now on
and an average for the, season of
between. 20- and 21 cents..' .
E. Y..Floyd, tobacco specialist of
'the State Extension Service, re
ported that the signup f or the new
AAA contracts now being offered
for 1936-39, .inclusive,. Is already
under Way in all but five counties
;-and will be practically completed

- of the group in revising -a state
' meat as to: the accomplishments
of the meetings.' "The question in

ed. , v
The statement written by Dr.
' Poe was approved by other mem
bers of the committee,' as well as
by Mr. Hutson,' appeared to repre-'-;
sent the . views of most of those
present, but It was distinctly more
optimistic than the views of some
of those - present, with Governor
Ehringbaua showing the - keenest
f disappointment because of the ab
. sence of concrete developments.
. Buyers Aloof , ;':'.''?V:
. ' All were somewhat surprised at
the attitude of the buyers, who'ex
i pressed a desire to cooperate but
who. declined to makei&ny specific
- The buyers' group, which was
headed by S. Clay Williams, of the
, R. J. Reyholds Tobacco Coniny,
who came back from vacation .to
attend the meeting, took a decid
edly aloof position.- '
' , Mr. Williams asserted that the
fixing of policies is solely a matter
between the growers and the. gov
ernment and refused to answer "a
shower of questions as to . various
proposals on the grounds that they
involved matters concerning which
it was not proper for him to ex
press an opinion; - ' -
In answer to questions by Sena
torBailey, . Governor Ehrlnghaus
and 'Representatives Harold D.
Cooley and Frank Hancock, he did
say that he regarded continuance
of the. processing tax and the in
ferior quality of the crop as the!
principal reasons for pie present
prices. He also : said specifically
thai! h6 did not regard alleged ov
erproduction as a factor. 4
Exchanges at the meetings were
far , less acrimonious than ' they
have .been on numerous r other si-
milar occasions in the past
Governor Ehrlnghaus was con-1 made a big success and 200 guests
dilatory in his questions to Mr. were entertained at Mr. O. C. Blan
Huston but was insistent on Uw' chard's on the banks of the beuati
questloh, .repeated twice by him f ul mill pond. ' . ' ; ' .
and once by Sena tor; Bailey as to j
what, if anything, could be done to
lncrease prices. Mr. Hutson finally
paid that the only definite sugges
na he had to offer were keeping I
p off the market, which it was year. '"V':'H;;'..!f.'A!;.i
