KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1952 PRICE TEN CENTS
Flue-cured : tobacco growers In
Korth and South CaroUna face a
double-banseled proposition -when
they go to the polls Saturday, July
On that date, flue-cured grow
ers from the Carolina ' will cat
ballots either for or against con
tinuance of: 4 -
1. A 10 cent per acre assess
ment to support Tobacco Associat
es. . -
x 2. Tobacco Marketing Quotas.
Here 1s some background for the
two referendums: . .
North and South CaroUna de
pend heavily on the success of the
xhie-cured tobacco program. . Two
vital phases of that program are
Marketing Quotas, .which guars o
tee - stabilized . market prices
-through a support program, and
the export promotional work car
ried on by Tobacco Associates
I Since 1934 growers have eniovel
the benefits of an acreage program
and since 1939 they have operated
' successfully under Marketing Quo
tas with acreage allotments, t Re
peatedly tobacco growers have vot-
ea overwneimtngiy to continue tin
program, which has meant so much
not only to growers but the entire
economy of the two states.
Tobacco Associates was formed
In 1947 by growers and their allied
interest to Drotect and develop
foreign markets upon which -they
deoend for the sale of some 40 per
. cent of their tobacco each year. Ia
July of that year, growers in the
( two Carolinas overwhelmingly ap
i proved the present 10 cent per acre
-' assessment for 1947-1049 and again
;: 4n 1949, they approved the assess
' loent for 1850, 1951, and 1952.
The extent of the work done by
. this export-promoting organization
is evidenced by tne increase in ex
ports since its formation six years
Man. Exnorts of United States flue-
rured tobacco have Increased from
359 million pounds In 1947 to 490
million pounds in ioi ana are
, now about 30 per cent above pre
war yean. Through the, work of
the organisation, new markets have
