~- the same as in 1937-38. Larger supplies are in~dicated for Burleyi, M~ary-

land, and dark air-cured, particularly for Burley. The prospective supplly

of fire-oured types is smaller than in thek preceding year. Little change

is in prospect for total supplies of cigar types.

Declines occurred in tax-paid withdrawals of cigarettes, cigars and

manufactured tobacco in July as compared with the corresponding month a

year .earlier. WNithdrawals in August, however, were higher :han in August

1937. Some further increase in business activity and consume~r incomels in

the fall and winter is expected. Thus, the decline which had been in progress

since the fall of 1937, and which resulted in. consumer demand for tobacco

products being smaller than. otherwise would have been the case, has been

halted at least temporarily.

FLUE-IURED, ~TPE~S 11-14

The marketing season for the 193~8 filue-cured crop got under way~ writh
the opening of the Georgiia -and Florida markets for Typ~e 14 on July: 28. South
Carolina and Border mrkrets for Type 13 opened on Auguiist 4, and eastern N~orth
Carolina sales for Ty:pe 12 began August P5. Markets in the MiZddle Belt -for
Tyrpe ll-b opened September 18, and selling on Old Belt RI7ketst 11-a will begin
September 2r. Sales of Type 14 were pralctirlly~ comp~leted before the end of
the third week of' Auguist. Total f'irst-nand~ sales for the entire season
amounted to 105,866,5007 pounds compared vdith aIpproxima~tely, 98,111,800~ pounds
during the previous season. The season's saverage pric~ vasr ?0.34- cents per
pound as compared wilth 13.65 cents in 1957. Total siles of theit other three
flue-cured typI~es have been c.onsidterablly h~vierr so far th~is season than in the
corresponding period last year. Since total. production of Tyne~s 11, 12 and 13
is somewhat smaller than in 1937C, the pres;Jn crop~ aipprentlyy is moving to
market at a more rapid rate thanr last ye-ar.

Prices in ge~neral for all four t:.ples have been hi~i-her tha-n las.t season on
low to good quality grades while th~e fine and choice quaity; grades are loweCr.
The general market average for all flue-cured tobacco sold during the- month of
August wats slightly, higher- than in Aulgust 19327. Pep~orts from repyresentativee
markets ,indicate:, however, that average prices fo~r Types 12 -nd 13 receded
slightly duirinE the first hanlf of Septembetr. It liemainse to b- siEn whe~jther the
tendencyl for the lower grades to be higher and th-e higher grade-- to bes lower in
price than was the case las', yiar continues thiroughoult the-r rsmcinder of the
marketinS season. Those qualities whi'ch have been~ higher in pric~E rslstive to
a year earlier are p-oducid in 1se~-er lulntity~ th-an "re the E3-a~1illd higcher
grades.

Total production bassed on conditions as of Septe-mber 1 is indicated at
786,900,000j p~ou~nds, or \3 per-cent less tha-n in 1937. The; highe-hr le-vel of stocks

The in~dicated production of Burleyr tobacco :.s of September 1 is 402
million pounds or almost ;rxactly, the s.ame :s the largef 193? crop. Due to an
expected increase of -bout 90 million pounds in stocks on October 1 rfl-ative to
a year earlier the total prospecctive supply of Burley; for the 19383-39 season
is 1,064,000 pounds or ipproximately 9 pre r~~nt -above the prceding yea~r. Since

I..APi7.LNDj, TYPE 32

Production of Southern Mbarylarnd tobacco is placed azt jO million pounds
based on conditions as of September 1., This is an increase of 19 percent over
1937. Stocks on Januarsy 1, 1939 however, are prelimuinarily estimated to be about
10 percent less than on January 1., 1~935. As a result -the total supply for the
calendar year 1939 probably will be only slighitly.1arger thanl in 1938.

Prices received so far thriF season for the 1937 crop have beeni somewrhat
lower than the average prices rectivt-d for the 1936 crop mazrketed during the 1937
calendar year. While domestic demazid conditions Fand the large crop nlow being
raised ha.ve been partly responsible for the; decline in prices paid for the last
crop, the continued decrease in foreign demanld probable is also an important
factor. Th~e principal foreign purch~se3rs atre Fran1Yce, Swit~zerland, the Neatherlanlds
and B3elgium. .Under the recipr-odal. trad agreement reached between the United
States and Fra~nce on~ June 15, 1936I, Franbc- Rgreed t~o. takre approximatelyy 20 million
