FALSE REPORTS ABOUT
Judge C. A. Woods, Circuit Judge
of United States Court of Appeals
fourth circuit, and well known planter
of Marion County South Carolina
joined the list of leading tobaccc
growers from South Carolina whc
have signed the contract of the To
bacco Growers Co-operative Associa
tion within a week.
Following the lead of the large
planters who have recently chosen
the co-operative association as their
marketing agency, many tobacco far
mers are now making haste to sign
before it is too late to Market this
year's crop at the 38 co-operative
warehouses in South Carolina.
Contracts pouring into Raleigh
headquarters of the Association from
Horry, Florence, Darlington, Williams
burg and Clarendon Counties are ad
ding strength to the Association
The wildest rumors are being cir
culated against the South Carolina as
revealed by a telegram from Lumber
ton recently received at headquarters
of the Tobacco Growers Co-operative
Association enquiring as to a report
that a thousand growers were suing
the Burley Association of Kentucky.
"Absolutely false" was the term ap
plied to these rumors by Wi. Col
lins, Assistant Chief of Field Service
for the Burley Tobacco Growers
In answer to a telegram of inquiry
from headquarters of the Tri-State
organization, Mr. Collins telegraphe.d
"Ropvrt that thousand growers are
suing Burley Association is absolute
ly false. Members are well satisfied
everywhere and sign-up continues.
Six hundred forty new contracts re
ceived last week and over five hund
red this week. About five thousand
members added since warehouses clos
ed. Are conldent of ten thousand
more before next crop delivered."
The United States Department of
Agriculture has just made public in
formation from Denmark that the
Danish Co-operatives continue to
prosper despite the economic depres
sion in European countries." Ac
cording to this information.
"The Danish Co-operative Whole
sale Society, composed of 1,800 local
co-operatives with nearly 350,000
increased their sales from roughly,
$42,000,000 in 1919 and $65,000,000
in 1920 to $67,000,000 in 1921, and
this despite industrial depression,
unemployment and lerce competition
by private interests."

For the organized tobacco growers

Kentucky farmers whose organization
has now sold 70,000,000 pounds of to
bacco for highly satisfactory prices,
during one month receiving an aver
age of 29 cents a pound for tobacco

that sold outside the Association
brought less than 21 cents per pound
