bration in honor of Aaron Sapiro, who
prophesied that co-operative market
ing would stabilize the tobacco igrow
ers' industry and double their prices 1
within a single year and who returned
to see his prophecy fulfilled.]
"The association has accomplished
its first great purpose in giving you
fair grading. It has doubled the price
of tobacco and before the association
sold one pound of tobacco you had
made the price basis," Sapiro told the
great audience in the Star 'ware
house at Mullins.
"If the figures of our first sale rep

advances, it based upon the first sales
of tobacco -made Iby the association,
do not represent more than a fourth
