Separate Board
Iii For Each County says ExpertM
Will Help to Solve The
Tobacco Troublelu
A well informed agriculturist of Mad
ison county and one who has studied
tho tobacco question for many years its
growth sale etc stated to a represen
tative of the Climax that he believeda
tho business of raising tobacco should
be controlled if possible by a county
board each county to have a separate
and independent board
lIe would have each grower in a coun
ty to organize a cooperative board of
control and said board to portion out
how much each member is to raiso dur
ing tho year He believes that this or
a similar plan is the only way to keep
prices up to anything like thoy havep
been as it is after all by supply and
demand that the market is guided bys
If a grade system should be adopted
by all the farmers it would bo a great
thing for both the buyer and seller The
tobacco that is being sold this year so
f ar has been very poorly graded and
this in itself has a tendency to keep the
prices down
The farmers should meet and get up
somosort of concerted action and han
dIe the subject in an intelligent and
businesslike manner
