Cigar Leaf Growers To Be
Asked To Adopt Plan
Like Cotton Offer
Washington, July 14.—(AP)—Farm
administrators will begin their acre
age reduction campaign for cigar leaf
tobacco next Monday in all the prin
cipal growing areas in an effort to
cut this year’s harvest 50 percent.
Plans for each of the growing dis
tricts vary because of the difference
in tobacco grades, but the plans for
all areas have one provision in com
mon, the paying of cash bounties to
growers who destroy potions of itheir
growing crop. A processing tax will
become effective later, probably about
October 1, to finance the program.
Such a levy is applied when the
tobacco is first changed or'pl’ocessed
toward the finished product.-
This tax will be at the rate of about
six cents a pound and will be aimed
to yield from $5,000,000 to $8,000,000.
It will be collected from cigar manu
facturers on all types of tobacco, with
collections to be handled by the Bii
reteir .of Internal Revenue, which al
ready has established a system of
internal revenue taxes on tobacco at
these factories. The growing districts
are New York and Pennsylvania,
Wisconsin and Minnesota, Ohio and
Indiana; New England ant^X** ol
and Florida.

London, July 14. —(AP)—The steer

the parley, and which many nations
desire not to terminate.
