Will Result Under New Plan
Will Have Meeting Next Tues

Followed by Meeting of Grow

SUCCESS TO DEPEND
UPON BENEFIT SUMS
(From News and Observer)
Washington, Jan. 21.—Claude T.
Hall, of Woodsdale, chairman of the
Tobacco Growers’ Advisory Com
mittee of the four states in the flue
cured tobacco area, today brought
to Washington word of discontent
among some tobacco growers con
cerning the emergency plans of the
administration tio replace the AAA
founded on fears that the crop will
be unduly large under those plans.
In order that the new plan, which
Mr. Hall thinks will work, “pro
vided the payments are made large
enough,” might be thoroughly ex
plained to the growers and the
same degree of cooperation secur
ed in 1933, 1934 and 1935, may again
be secured in 1936 and 1937, Mr.
Hall today arranged for a meeting
of his full committee with depart
ment officials on next Tuesday, to
be followed by a meeting of grow
ers at Raleigh to be held as soon
as Congress adopts the new plan
based on soil conservation, which
will be introduced in both House
and Senate tomorrow.
Present plans are to attach the
emergency legislation, intended for,
two years only, as a rider to an ap
propriation bill in the Senate in
order to secure quick action.
While Mr. Hall would not dis
cuss amounts today, it is known that
t£he) Department of Agriculture is
figuring on a subsidy to growers
of between 5 and 7 cents a pound.
Payments under the AAA were
never as much as 3 cents a pound,
and were greatly reduced for the
“The farmers want the crop con
dolled and many of them fear that
> will not be possible to control it
-directly,” said Mr. Hall. “I think
1 can be controlled if the payments
are large enough, but it will be
necessary to explain the matter
thoroughly to the farmers, and that
is what it is proposed to do.”
While plans were going forward
for the bill to give subsides to the
farmers, both President Roosevelt
and Secretary of Agriculture Wal
lace made it clear that the adminis
tration looks with disfavor on the
plan to return $200,000,000 in pro
cessing taxes, which was ordered
yesterday by I|he Supreme Courtl
afjfcpr curtly refusing to entertain,
the government’s petition for a re
hearing of the case.

to them than those who have actual
