NO. 28 x i DIRK TOZACGO QRGtZATIQN EAlXi::S VERY BJtPltlLY Big Drive For Signers Scheduled For Latter P.ri of July In . Many Counties. 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 expected. ' . 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 on. 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. ' ' Daviess County Farmer Signing Owensborq, Ky.. July 11,.
