Polish Government Buys Tobacco Crop of Upper Galilee

The Polish government, just as last year, has purchased the entire tobacco crop of Upper Galilee on the basis of an agreement between the Polish tobacco monopoly and M. Barsilai, chairman of the Rosh Pinah. The 40 pence per pound paid for this year’s crop betters last year’s price but even with this increase the price is still below that paid for tobacco of equal grade elsewhere, M. Barsilai said. After certain formal difficulties are removed he hopes for better prices.
