Quota Rel-t’.ettdum tr.e gro'.ver may
vote for guotas for three, years,
one year or against all quotas;
while witii another poll holder he
can vote lor or against the annual
assessment of ten cents per acre
for 1950, 1951, .and 52.
The 1947 Legislature passed an
enabling act to permit growers to
\-ote This .assessment upon them
selves to support' an export pro
motion program, handled by . To
bacco Associates. Inc. There has
been sonte opposition to the To
bacco Associates' latel.v, so;r.c a-
gainst the ' type of organization
and some against it claiming it
hasn’t iteen ■ effective in promot
ing the si.Ie of tobacco overseas.
While o.n the other side. Farm
Organization Leaders claim that
the problem has been effective
and L. T. Weeks,'Manager .of the
Stabilization Corporation says,
“The work of Tobacco Associates
in opening up sales channels has
enabled us to move large quanti
ties o'f tobacco that would not
have been sold otherwise.” De
cide whether you think the pro
gram is worth 10 cents per acre
of tobacco, then vote accordingly.
In the other referendum on to
bacco quotas, which is more fam
iliar to us, I_ thing that the Im
portant thing is getting a large
percentage of growers, to vote.
Generally the attitude of most
growers oh quotas and support
prices is already' fixed, but the
influence that this referendum has
on the Tobacco Program in Wash
ington -.vill ’oe dOlermine.d largely
by the percentage of tobacco
growers who actually vote on
