Onlj- the cotton marketing quotas , .^\vill be voted upon in the referen- r diim, Mr. Burns pointed out. Other X j)tiases- of tne agricultural conservation program will be in effect regardless of the result of the referendum. "Farmers will be voting on whether or not the program shall apply tp all producers in the same manner, or be on a voluntary basis. The vole affects only the 1938 crop. If the supply of cotton again exceeds 7 per 'cent of normal, as it does thi's year, another referendum will be called in 1939 to determine whether or not marketing quoins will be adopted for that year. "Under the marketing quota plan, farmers who do not plant more than their allotted acreage will be allowed to market, all the cotton grown, regardless of the. amount. The penalty for over-planting \rill be 2 cents a pound on cotton grown on the acreage in excess ot the allotted acreage." Mr. Burn.? explains. Under the law .recently passed ^L. l>y Congress, no loans will be available on the 1938 crop unless tile marketing quotas are accepted by the farmers, and no subsidy payments on Hie 1938 crop will lie available. Whether or not the marketing quotas ore accepted, farmers who do not coopearte in the program will forfeit -subsidy )>ay- ments on the 19,17 crop.

There isn't any question wlierc the more expensive tobaccos go. They're, in Camel ciyarcil'es." Top prices, that's- what J. B. Jackson, successful planter, got from the Camel buyer last year. "Camel buyers tlon't buy just any tobacco - they pay more to get the best. Tlmt means finer tobaccos are used for Camels. I say quality has cot to be ffj-oieii in tobacco. That's why I smoke Camels." "I'm a planter," says Vcrtner Hatton, who has grown tobacco for 25 years. "Camel bought the best grades of my last crop. Paid a high price for my finest grades. I smoke Camels- because I know there isn't any substitute for rpore expensive tobaccos." • CnrtlfJ. ml.» J, R.70oW. rt&*n> Cotur.
