Flue Cured Tobacco Reinstated The discount variety program for flue-cured tobacco has been reinstated for the 1972 crop. Under the program, farmers will certify to the County ASCS Office whether or not they plan- ted a discount variety of tobac- co on their farm during the cur- rent year. Such certification must be filed with the local County ASCS Office prior to is- suring a marketing card forthe farm, said Jack Goolsby. Chair- man of the Covington County Ag- ricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee. Discounted varieties are Co- ker 139, Coker 140, Coker 316, Dixie Bright 244, Reams 64, 187-Golden Wilt and any other breeding line have the charac- teristics of the discount varie- ties. Tobacco nroduced from these varieties will be sup- ported at one-half the loan rate for comparable grades of other varieties, Discount varieties are named in accordance with recommendations by the tobac- co industry and federal and state research agencies• The aim of the Discount Var- iety Program is to discourage production of certain flue-cured varieties which tend to produce tobacco that is generally low in flavor and aroma• The tobacco industry faced a serious threat a few years ago whenthetobac- cos now labeled "Discount" were found unacceptable to the trade. Except for the 1971 crop, the Discount Variety Pro- gram has been in effect for each flue-cured tobacco crop since Safety and Health Act of 1970, to local business and industrial firms, Hubert T. Sullivan, Chapter Chairman reports. The act, which assures safe and healthful working conditions for workers, stipulates that first aid-trained personnel must be on the work site if no infirmary, clinic, or hospital is in near proximity. The law holds the employer responsible for providing these services. The Department of Labor spe- cifically designated the Red Cross as a source to employ- ers for first aid instruction through a statement of under- standing recently signed by Se- cretary of Labor, James D. Hodgson, and George M. Elsey, president of the American Red Cross. Covington County Chapter, ARC, offers lecture type first aid courses and multimedia standard course. The latter is a one-day course incorporating films, programmed student workbooks, and first aid equip- ment.
