; With Uncfe Valt
SX looks ' like things is ehapSn
', r&f good for us tobacco farm
's Cda year. Least ways that's what
gathered from (the talk I heerd in
? county seat vie other day,
This feller W. P. gedrick, who's a
.lacco marketing specialist with the
. -e" Agriculture Department at Ra
lelah, was a talkin to a-bunch of
farmers in the court rooqi and I got
wind of t, while : I was in OiarHe
Nole's store a Ibuyin me some seed
pertatenj. I 'lowed I'd go over and
.hear what he had to say-' 'specially
when they told me he was gonna talk
about what we could expect on our
tobacco crop for this year ' -
Well sir, 'fore I could git over there
and up the dratted steps to the court
room, he'd done started talkin 1 don't
'-now how much he'd said fore I got
'iere but I know he said a lot after
got in and got me a seat.
.'Seems like from the way he give it
in, us flue-cured growers can count
on gittin a little better price for our
tobacco this- year, than we got last.
Now Jt you dont think that sounded
good to these old ears of mine, you
jest don't know.
The way' he sized it up was that this
"'ionization outfit didnt git much of
v crop last year so we ought to
e a pretty strong market for the
2 crop.' He give a bunch of fig-
.'S about how much we shipped to
se furrin countries, but when they
V to talkin about millions and bil-
ns I .forgit it by the tihie I hear
. I do remenalber one figger he men
tioned though. It was where Great
Britain bought about 150 million
pounds of our tobacco last year. He
said, that feller Churchill over there
talk like they couldn't buy nothin like
that much this year 'cause they're
runnin a little short on money. Hei
went on to say then that if the folks
in . Washington would loan 'em some
money, they would be glad ito come
back over here and buy our tobacco
with our money. But if they don't git
our money, I reckon from the way he
give it in, this Stabulzation bunch bet
ter figger on buyin a little more of
the crop this time. '
- You should of heerd him talkin Txrat
the cigaret smokers we got right here
in our own country. ' It's a sight in
this world at the number we smoke
over here and he says the American
cigaret is considered a luxury with
them furriners. Cigarets ain't the
only thing we use a lot of here neith
er. Snuff dippin and tobacco chewin
is still Pretty Donular with a lot of
us and I reckon it'll always be least
ways it will with me. ..": ;;;
' I didn't listen too good when he
commenced to .talkin about the burley
growers and what they could count
on for this year, but I do remember
him a say m that the burley1 situation
aint as good as theflue-cured. Seems
like this Burley Stabulzation Pool, or
some such outfit, has got a right
good little' bit on hand now and them
fellers up in the. mountains had ano
other right big crop last year.
He sorts summed up his talk in a
nutshell right before he set down.
Two of the main , things he said was
that well probly snip out a. little more
of flue-cured and burley tobacco to
furrin countries during. 1952 than we
did last year. And the other one was
that us farmers oughta do "everything
wa can to grow good tobacco,. V Ac
cordin to him, we didn't get any high
er price for our .tobacco last year on
account of the low 'and medium quali
ty stuff we put on the floors to sell.

drunk arose slowly and walked out of
the door. In a few minutes he came
back in. Then he went out again only
to return in a few more minutes.

said: "It's no use, the whole world
