W YORK, (AP)-There probably will ba almost as many cigar- ete made for domestic consumption this year as In 1943. "What about the cigaret short- r*AO>J ..,».. _ _t_ . ••**"• we »y*»v*V- a v age?'? you ask. The cigaret industry simply answers: "Americans are smoking at the fastest rate in history—that's why there's a shortage." The National Association of To- Jacco Distributors, Inc., and other .rade sources today gave this pic- ; ure of estimated output for domes- ic consumption: Production could range as high is 262,000,000,000 cigarets in 19# aut will be pared several billions, by manpower shortages and othej actors. The final figure will be lose to the 257,600,000,000 made In 243 ' 500 " Besides< this, total overseas shipments of tax-free cigarete to the rmed forces will be about 63,00000,000 in 1944, against-32,000,000000 Although there will be almost as nany cigarets produced for do- nestic use this year, so-called popu- ar brands will be scarcer because oldiers and sailors overseas have rst call. Still more tobacco is earmarked or lend-lease and export. Amount- ng to about half that set aside or domestic use, such stocks will otal the equivalent ot-141,000 000000 garets for the year ending June 30 945, against 106,125,000,000 the pre- eding year. ^Most sources expect the « lv *m 8 c6 continue at least 2 or 3 month* Government officials have eaid the scarcity should not grow any worse Most important, there ju§t aren' enough stocks of aged tobacco Civilians would have found fewer cigarets had it not been for excellent crops this year.' But even with more raw tobacco increased cigaret output would be questionable. Manpower shortages affect farm operations, factory production and distribution to the ultimate consumer. Some 'circles say black market operations ore increasing'with con. sumers paying premiums, Hoarding by some consumers has accentuated the shortage, they add.
