Chairman of th;i Agricultural Sta

Growers eligible to voter in the
referendum are all those who pro
duced burl y tobacco ir 1964 and
shared in the crop or its proceeds.
Also, each person who was either
the owner or operator of a farm
for which a 1964 hurley tobacco
allotment was established is eli
gible to vote, even, though no to
bacco was actually produced on
the farm in 1984, if an allotment
was establish;d for the farm for
For the 1965 crop of hurley to
bacco, the Departmeent of Agri
culture has announced a total of
284,146 acres available for allot
ment. This compares with 315,696
acres alloted for 1964. Under an
allotment program, the allotments
are announc'd annually, for one
year at a time.
The total supply of burley do
bacco for the current marketing
year Is 2,043 million pounds, in
cluding an Octob.ir 1 carryover
of 1,412 million pounds and esti
mated 1964 production of 631
million pounds. The carryover in
cluded 261 million pounds under
Government loan. This total sup
ply is an all-time high and en

current level of domestic use

about 2.8 years use is considered
desirable. Intessiifying our sup
ply problem are the. large sur
pluses in foreign producing coun

compared with our priors. Besid
es an overall drop in U. S. cigar

going into such production because
of fuller utilization of the ent re

filter-tip cigarettes, and an in
creased proportion of oriental

the quota referendum can pa
simply stated,” Chairman Edwar
ds declared. “If quotas for burley
tobacco are approved by at least
two-thirds- of the ‘growers voting, *
the tow provides that the present
I program will be continued for

“On the other hand, if more
than one-third of the voters dis
approve quotas fey voting NO,
there will be no mark, ting quotas,
no penalties on excess tobacco,
and no program on
