farmers of the State to do throo
things," said the Governor. "First,
they must diversify their crops;
second, they must cultivate inten

third, they must market this crop
intelligently, so as to get the best
possible price for lt,
"I am convinced, after a study of
tho matter, that tho solution of the
marketing end of our problem lies in
co-operative marketing, lt is our
only hope for a stabilized market.
"A campaign is now being con

cotton in 10 22 to get a copy of the]
contract, study it carefully, and when
he has made up his mind, as I be
lieve he will, sign the contract so
