grower with more than five acres under cultivation would be assessed from one to five cents a hundred pounds for potatoes he sold The monies collected would be turnedover to the National Po tato Council Washington DC and used to buy up tubers in years of excess production The pur chased potatoes would be taken out of circulation the aim being to prevent a glut on the market Another
