BRIGHT WEED BELT SET FOR OPENING Growers Expecting Today’s Prices To At Least Equal Those Of Last Year RALEIGH. Sept. 2.-0B-F r o m throughout the eastern Bright Leal Belt word came tonight that grow ers were expecting opening prices to at least equal, and probably to exceed, those of last year. Tobacconists predicted that quality would be about the same, with the usual offerings of infer ior grades. Steady factors in this year’s sales, opened on the belt tomor row, are the recently voted three year control plan and the presence of British buyers, purchasing through the commodity credit cor poration. The fact that this is a short crop also will help prices, tobacconists said. On the other side of the ledger: Adding a dash of pessimism are reports of much green tobacco m the Belt, and huge quantities oi weed hurt by bad weather. Proper grading, however, may help bol ster prices. Reports of tobacco already on the floors varied tonight on the 14 markets. At Wilson, for instance, the of ferings were considered inferior tc last year’s opening. They were principally common and low qual ity leaf and fair to good quality lugs. Lugs predominated. At Tarboro, grade for grade was considered as good or better than that seen on the Georgia markets. One spokesman here said that “there is little damaged week, and the quality is the best I have ever seen on opening day. I expect bet ter prices than in 1939.” Farmers who took their weed to Kinston apparently were not in clined to rush the market. There was a general expectancy of fair prices on heavy sales. The quality on the floors was fair. 4 INQUEST INTO TWO DEATHS SCHEDULED Investigation Of Accident In Which Hester And Owens Died Slated Tonight / __ WHITEVILLE, Sept. 2.—An in quest into the double automobile tragedy near Hallsboro last night in which Hoyle Hester, 27, and Bill Owens, 26, both of Whiteville, were killed and Joseph D.
