destructive have the attacks of these
Night Klders been during the past year
that many of the Independent tobacco
glowers of the state referred to have
had to vacate their Dlantatlons and
move to other states. The motive for
these vicious attacks on the independ

willingness to have the ptlce at which

agreement the members have been
