North Carolina tobacco
ers will have to take a siieable
gouge from y: their 1938 acreage
to offset the bumper crop pro
duced in 1937, W. G. Finny of
the AAA, told farmers, attending
the second ' annual tobacco short
course at State College last week.
In , producing': a $200,000,000
crop, flue-cured, erowers of the
Nation , piled up a 100,000,000
pound carry-over which' may af
fect prices this year, Finn, who is
assistant administrator of - the
East Central region, declared.
Although marketing the Ingest
flue-cured crop on record, North
uarouna producers averaged aoout
23 cents a pound for offerings.
This speotacle of a bumper crop
bringing high prices was . caused
by an increased and domestic de
mand, Finn said. -A-y,' :c .'.I, yy
However, he said, domestic de
mand will' not increase more than
five per cent in 1938, and the for
eign demand may even drop off
because of unsteeled conditions in
the Orient and because many co
untries ', now importing United
States flue-cured leaf are begnn-
ing to f row more of their own
"High prices received for the
rge 1937 crop may cause grow
ers everywhere to plant more to
bacco this year unless suitable
control measures are nut into ef
fect," Finn said,
"Pending legislation in Con-
will aid in equalizing the supply
and demand of tobacco," the AAA
representative told the farmers.
"If passed, erowers will have a
chance to accept or reject the leg
islation through referendum. A

.Congressman Frank Hancock of .
NorQi Carolina, after a conference
today with Mr. J. B. EaUoa,
Chief of the Tobacco Section - of
the, Agricultural Adjustment Ad
ministration, stated: -
- "Tobacco farmers may rest as
sured that marketing quotas for
flue-cured tobacco will be made -within
approximately fifteen days
after the Conference Report on the
pending Farm Bill is ratified by
Congress and approved by the
President . This should certainly ;,
be accomplished by the 20th of
this montii. These quotas, which
are somewhat similar to allot
ments under the old AAA ,will
provide for the sale of . approxi-
B'imatelyJOO million pounds of
bright, flue-cured tobacco lor ue '
year 1938. Between 475 and 500
million pounds of this amount
will constitute the quota for
North Carolina. . ' .
"Acreage allotments under the
Soil Conservation program will
probably be made before the mar
keting quotas under the new Farm -Bill
are invoked. These acreage al- '
lotments will represent the acre
age required, with normal yield, to -produce
the marketing : quota
that will be made under the new?
Farm Bill The marketing quotas
are based on poundage and coniti- -
tute the only controls which may
be considered really euective in
price stabilization. Acreage allot
ments under the Soil Conservation
program will be applied for the
current year as follows! Growers
who have bases of 5 acres or more
established for the farms will ie ,
ceive allotments of about 7 per
cent less than the 1937 aoree
provided they participated fully in
the Boil 7 Conservation - program.
Full participation means diversion
of the TnaTim,lin tobacco , acreage
for which payments were ! made.
For growers whose base acreage,
is between 3 1-2 and 5 acres, the
