VVarehon-es were prepared to reeoivt
any offerings that were brought ip
on Monday and Tuesday, as well a.
on Wednesday and today, but thcr*
was just enough to give the buyers i.
few minutes work.
The scant sales of this final week
brought the season’s total of tobacco
on the Henderson market to 19.180,
Pvt) pounds. It sold for $3.501.851.0*
for an average of SIB.OO even per bun
died pounds.
Tim previous season’s total- for the
Henderson market showed only 13,
<’>oß 716 pounds .sold, for - which buyers
paid $1,005,006.87. for an average o'
only 12.23 per hundred pound- - .
This year’s sales, therefore, repre
sent a gain of approximately fifty
p< reent in both pounds sold and in
the average price paid, and much
more than double the total amount
of money paid out. Ttiis year’s price
was the highest average since thr
crop of 1929. which brought $19.12 per
hundred pounds on the Henderson
market. Thai year the market sold
23.709.072 pounds for $1,532,651.86. Thr
1930 crop, however, was the one that
gave Henderson an all-time high
mark in poundage, with 27,556,76*
pounds sold for $3,719,896.91, but thr
average price for the season was onn
$13.15 per hundred.

made, according to Capua M Waynick
.State director of the National Reem
ployment Service, is that since the
of $950,000,000 has been passed, the
bill carrying the new appropriation
F.mergency Relief Administration is
no longer bound by the regulations
made necessary in the expenditure of
the $400,000,000 allotted to it from
the Public Works Administration.
These old regulations made it raan
adatory that the same wage scale be
paid on CWA projects as on PWA
projects, or from 45 cents and hour
for unskilled labor to sl.lO an hour
for skilled. They also required that
the money could be expended only
on certain types of construction work
and on public property. Nor did the
regulations reqquire that those CWA
workers enroll for the Reemployment
Service must be anything more than
unemployed, with the result that a
son of a man who might have an
income of SIO,OOO a year could get a
CWA job if he was unemployed.
But under th enew regulation just
promulgtaed by Harry L. Hopkins, di
rector of the Emergency Relief Ad
ministration, following the enactment
of the new law, and which removed
all the old PWA regulations, the fol
lowing rules are already m effect:
1. In any and all replacements
made on CWA projects from now on,
only those “in dire need” shall he
given jobs.
2. All those found not t oho “in
dire need of work’’ are to be laid off
as rapidly as possible.
3. That those dropped from CWA
sobs must be those from families in
which others are gaining employ
ment, even if only one person in the
family .is working.
4. The rate of pay for various class
es of labor shall be the same as in
the various communities in which
they are employed, provided that it
shall not be less than 30 cents an
hour for skilled labor, the same pro
vision that formerly applied lo all
Emergency Delict work projects. The
hours for the present are to remain
at 24 hours a week in cities and towns
of less population and in rural dis
tricts.
5. Needy women must be given the
same consideration as needy men.
6. While workers are to he select
ed from both the Reemployment Serv
ice as well as relief rolls and must he
registered with the Reemployment
Service, they must hereafter he "in
dire need” as well as unemployed to
secure jobs.
There are several factors hack or
these new rulings. One of the first
things they are designed to do is to
stop the scramble for CWA jobs by
those who were not in need but who
w<ve attracted by the pay schedule
of 15 cents to sl.lO cents an hour, hut
which will now he only from 30 cents
to 45 cents an hour. The second fac
tor is to limit all CWjA employment
only for those in actual need and
with no means of support, which
could not be done under the old PWA
regulations. Another reason for the
regulation undoubtedly is to make
the CWA unattractive as a. political
pie counter.

we see ’em next fall on Broadway.
