-STATUTE-

The Secretary of Agriculture is authorized and directed to

collect and publish statistics of the quantity of leaf tobacco in

all forms in the United States and Puerto Rico, owned by or in the

possession of dealers, manufacturers, quasi-manufacturers, growers'

cooperative associations, warehousemen, brokers, holders, or

owners, other than the original growers of tobacco. The statistics

shall show the quantity of tobacco in such detail as to types,

groups of grades, and such other subdivisions as to quality, color,

and/or grade for particular types, as the Secretary of Agriculture

shall deem to be practical and necessary for the purposes of this

chapter, shall be summarized as of January 1, April 1, July 1, and

October 1 of each year, and an annual report on tobacco statistics

shall be issued: Provided, That the Secretary of Agriculture shall

not be required to collect statistics of leaf tobacco from any

manufacturer of tobacco who, in the first three quarters of the

preceding calendar year, according to the returns of the

Commissioner of Internal Revenue or the record of the Treasurer of

Puerto Rico, manufactured less than thirty-five thousand pounds of

tobacco, or from any manufacturer of cigars who, during the first

three quarters of the preceding calendar year, manufactured less

than one hundred and eighty-five thousand cigars, or from any

manufacturer of cigarettes who, during the first three quarters of

the preceding year, manufactured less than seven hundred and fifty

thousand cigarettes: And provided further, That the Secretary of

Agriculture may omit the collection of statistics from any dealer,

manufacturer, growers' cooperative association, warehouseman,

broker, holder, or owner who does not own and/or have in stock, in

the aggregate, fifty thousand pounds or more of leaf tobacco on the

date as of which the reports are made. For the purposes of this

chapter, any tobacco which has deteriorated on account of age or

other causes to the extent that it is not merchantable or is

unsuitable for use in manufacturing tobacco products shall be

classified with other nondescript tobacco and reported in the ''N''

group of the type to which it belongs.
