THE lOCENT LIMIT
Southern Cotton Association
fixes Minimum Price
CROP SHORTER THAN THOUGHT
After Two Days' Deliberation Execu
tive Committee Adopts Resolutions
Declaring That Crop Has Greatly
Detefitorated Since -Aug. 15 and
Urging All Southern Interests to
Stand For 10-Cent Cotton as a
Hot Springs, Ark., pecial.-The
executive committee of the Southern
Cotton Association late Friday after
noon recommended to its lcnibelrs
and cotton growers of the South that
no cotton be sold during the present
season at less ithaii 10 eeits per
pound. In a resolution adopted by
the committee, it is stated that the
crop is in a state of deterioration.
and for that reason no estimate of the
crop was made. The resolution states
however, that the committee is satis
fied that the crop will not be as large
as the current estimate. The placig
of the minimum price at 10 cents was
in the nature of a victory for the con
servative element of the association.
The resolution adopted by the com
mittee, which is in the shape of an
address to the public, follows:
"Inasmuch as we, the cotton grow
ers of the South, know that there has
been great deterioration in the cotton
crop since August 15, and,
"Whereas the consensus of opinion
of the members of this committee is
that the deterioration is still going
on. we deem it unwise to make an
estimate of the crop at this time. We
are satisfied the crop wiil not be as
large as the current estimate.
"We therefore suggest and urge
upon all our members and producers
throughout the South not to sell their
cotton at a figure less than the cost
"We call unon all Southern in
terests to aid in maintaining for all
time this price as a minimum. We
urge the necessity of marketing slow
ly and only on an advancing market.
and withdrawing all cotton from the
market at every decline."
The committee took up the charges
against Secretaary Richard Cheatham
of dealing in futures while an officer
of the association. After a spirited
debate, in which J. A. Brown. of
North Carolina, led the opposition.
the committee decided to go in exe
eutive session to eonsider the charges.
Mr. Brown then left the room in
which the committee were meeting
and announced that he had refused
to sit in executive session on th~e mat
Mr. Brown has maintained through
out the session that they should be

The most damaging testimony was
