EAlXi::S VERY BJtPltlLY
Big Drive For Signers Scheduled
For Latter P.ri of July In .
Hopklnavllle, Ky., July 11.
Judging from the Interest already
ahown throughout the dark tobacco
. district; the concerted drive for
members to the Dark Tobacco
Growers Co-Operative Association,
which is to be put on in Jwenty or
more counties the latter part of this
month, each county will be' very ac
tive at that time and big results are
. Organization ' Director, Joseph
Passonneau, has his hands full look
ing after the arrangments for this
big effort. His presence Is being
asked in' nearly all the counties be
fore the drive actually begins, but
It will be Impossible for him to
. reach them all. However,, In near
'ly all of them a live organization
has been formed and these will see
to It that the dr.ive is properly put
Right' now. Mr. Passonneau is
working on his list ot speakers for
the speaking campaign which will
Immediately precede the real drive.
Several ot the- foremost men In
the state, some ot them public offi
cials and others prominent in busi
ness and the professions, will aid
In explulning to the growers the
Sapiro plan ot organization and the
benefits that v will come to them
through the association.
" The exact date for the actual
drive for signatures has not - yet
been settled, and this will be done
at a meeting of the district organi
zation committee to be' held here at
an early date. .
. But these details are not, being
permitted to hold back the work In
the several couutlos. In each one
the local committees are carrying
on the campaign vigorously. In
those counties where the Blgnup has
already been begun, they are not
waiting for the big drive but are
continuing their efforts according
the plans first made' All of these
will be expected to participate in
the big drive, even though they may
have secured the required minimum
of two-thirds of the tobacco acre
age; in such event they will make
a big effort to carry the total to
SO per cent or better.
In Montgomery county Tennes
see, Chairman Claude Coke, has an
nounced that the acreage pledged
now totals more than 10,000. In
" Christian county the total is above
9,000 acres. In Daviess county sev-
: eral thousand acres, have been
pledged, fully 1.000 acres being
pledged the past week. - Todd coun
ty has more than 80 per cent pledg
ed. Trigg, Graves, Calloway, Mc
Cracken, Henderson, Hopkins, Lo
gan and othei; counties have sub
stantial acreage already signed' up.
. In several of the precincts in the
'counties where the signup has been
. begun, ninety per cent or better ot;
the acreage has already been pledg-
ed. In one precinct In ,Daviessj
county where the signup Is said to i
be about 99 per cent the soliciting j
committee has refused to turns in
the signed contracts they have se
cured, until they make it 100 perj
per cent. . Equally as good reports
fan be made for precincts in nearly
very county where any systematic
work has been done. . -'
With this as- a starter, and ' an
t evidence of the sentiment of ' the
people, the workers will tackle the
big drive with high enthusiasm and
full confidence thst success will
crown their- efforts, not to the
minimum extent o( the two-thirds,'
but to seventy-five per cent or bet
. ter. '
