There has been little razzle-dasak
or fanfare about it, but from th?
standpoint of real economics the to
bacco referendum on Saturday, Julj
12, will be one of the most important
elections that has ever been held ii
the flue-cured belt.
In simple terms, what the electior
will decide is whether or not growert
will assess themelves 10 cents ar
acre for a fund to be used in protect
ing and developing the export mar
ket for American grown tobacco,
Traditionally, the flue-cure<j tobaccc
grow an our Carolina farms has hat
a big demand ih other countries, ami
normally 40 per cent >of our total
crop is exported. This meant a total
of 1182,000,000 was returned to
North Carolina farmers last year on
flue-cured exports and 170,000,000 to
growers in South Carolina.
The coming referendum cannot be
tossed aside as just another balloting
?or the mere assessment of about 4-5
cents per farmer annually for the
next three years. It goes far beyond
that. It is a vote on whether grow
ers are concerned enough to protect
the $200 an acre they received from
exported tobacco in 1946.
If there is a good turn-out at the
polls, the effect will be felt both in
Washington and in the capitals ol
foreign countries where "matters of
world trade are decided. If the vote
is weak, then we may be headed back
toward 1932, when according to eco
nomists, world trade was at a stand
still. We know only too well first
hand what priceg were here at-home.
And, with the increasing yield per
acre from tobacco, it aril be difficult
if not impossible to maintain a fair
price if our domestic supply is load
ed down with the 40 per cent that
normally goes for export.
The job of maintaining our export
market is a big one. It is
that will have vital aOe$ not fc
upon the prosperity of tobacco
era, but also upon the people living in
our cities and towns. We hope that
the four dimes and a nickel that the
average grower pdts in, when they
are all added together for adminis
tration by Tobacco Associates,, -will
be enough to do the job.
Looking at this program philoso
phically, it has several encouraging
aspects. For one thing, it is home
grown and stemmed from discussions
among leading farmers right hare in
our flue-cored belt For another, it
is a move on the part of growero in
cooperation with allied interests, to
take a firm step to solve their own
problems in their own way, Apd
finally, the complete control of To-'
bacco Associates is. vested in the*
hands of a board of directors whose
very records are proof that, they will
see to it that every penny paid in by
growers is made to do full duty in
protecting and developing the
foreign market for Ameriom grown
Every grower of flue-cured tobac
co?regasdless of how busy he may
be?should take time out J3atxt.day
to go to the polls and vote.
