The 1932 meeting will be held for three days at Virginia Beach, beginning Thursday. June 30. A. B. Carrington, of Danville, Va., president of the as sociation, is to preside. Among the important business to come before the meeting is that of selection of the dates for the opening of the tobacco selling season in the various belts. In other years the Middle Belt, in which the principal markets are Hen derson. Oxford and Durham, has started a week to two weeks after the opening in the Eastern Carolina belt, and the Old Belt of North Caro lina and Virginia gets under way a week later. Middle Belt tobacconists are hopeful that the schedule will re main approximately as it has been heretofore, with possibly a week’s ear lier start here. If possible. Announcement of the convention date is made as the 1932 crop is get ting under way, and with good pros pects for a considerable cut in acre age nearly everywhere, due to the low prices that prevailed the last season.

While I here has been considerable rain in th late winter and early spring, the brisk winds of the recent weeks have fanned a good deal of moisture out of the soil, and additional precipita tion would help some at this time. It is considered certain that there will be a reduction of acieage in this tenitory this summer, but the exact amount, or even a close estimate, would be difficult to ascertain. From Warrenton comes the report that tobacco farmers in that section are beginning to worry about the pos sibility of a shortage of plants for the 1932 crop. That reports is that re planting of beds are not getting the results desired. The Warren Record quotes ti. G. Wilson, one of the coun ty's foremost farmers, as saying that he doubted if he had enough plants to cover one acre. W. J. Pinnell. sheriff of Warren county, commented that he had a big plant bed. but ad ded he did not know whether he could find enough plants suitable for set ting to go over more than an acre.
