July 3, 1937 Dear Mr. Editor: Tobacco should be harvested when fullest of oil in order for it to cure easily and be rich and su perior in quality. Oil does not e vaporate in the process of curing like the sap does and remains to give wealth to the weed. Oil and sap (water) do not mix, but come and go, at intervals, during the life of the plant. When the sap rises it runs the oil out (oil being light er) through the pores of the leaf to the surface where it forms a “gum”, well known to all tobacco growers. Tobacco haryested in this condition will cure badly and be light and inferior in quality. My father grew tobacco for a bout 70 years. He found that there are better times than others for harvesting tobacco in order to se cure best results. I shall be pleas ed answer any correspondence from tobacco growers, provided postage is sent for reply. Yours truly, W. H. Davis. Board Field Office. Second, em ployees who have applied, but have not received a number, should file again—using Form SS-5, paying particular attention to question 14 on that form. When they get their numbers they should make them known to you so that you can make your informational returns to the Treasury. Question No. 16: I am the presi dent of a company which promotes entertainment for church bazaars and other organizations during the summer months. In setting up the paraphernalia we employ local la bor on an hourly basis. Some em ployees only work two or three hours. Do we have to deduct taxes from their wages and file returns for these temporary employees? Answer No. 16: You do. The appli cation ot the Social Security Act and the liability of the employer to deduct and pay taxes under its provisions does not in any way de pend in the length of time a work er is employed nor how little he may be paid.
