All directors of the Tobacco Grow
ers Co-operative Association met in
Raleigh a few days before the open
ing of the South Carolina tobacco
marets and took final measures to
insure the orderly marketing of the
crop of the members from that State.
They predict that the organized
growers of South Carolina will enjoy
far better prices this year because of
"The demands for tobacco of the old
belt and the unfavorable crop oendi
tions in Eastern North Carolina this
year create a situation very favorable
to our Association," said R. R. Pat
terson, General Manager of the Leaf
Department, who states that members
of the Association who enjoy the ad
vantages of orderly marketing will
profit by largely increased prices for

er of the Association reported that
$4,000,000 has bee nassured to the
Association already, in loans from

Vice-president Joseph M. Hurt of
he Association, himself a large to
pacco farmer of Southside Virginia,
eferring to the policy of the Asso
iation in an interview at Raleigh
eadquarters, said "The successful
ontinuance of large scale co-opera
ion with human and financial ele
nents combined, requires more skil
ul management than a big corpora
ion which is chiefly financial. In
he corporation you lose sight of thte
uman side, for you are dealing with
oin, and not with personality; in
uccessful co-operation we must take
he man as well as the product -into
he Co-operative and here the human
lement cannot be -lost."
Comparing the growth of the co
peratives to the natural growth of
>ig corporations, President Hurt of
he Association prophesied that an
ffective combination of human and
msiness organization in successful
o-operatives will be the great de
lelopment of the future to make
ife in the country worth living.
