Many of the banks have signified
their Intention of launching vigor
ous advertising campaigns in behalf
of tho association and of doing
everything in their power to encour
age thoso farmers who havo not yet
done so to sign tho contract.
The Commercial Bank of Newber
ry, with John M. Kinard as president,
has already begun a campaign of this
nature in Newberry county, the New
berry papers having carried in their
last issues largo advertisements hy
their banks endorsing tho movement
and urging the farmers to join.
"After a thorough investigation of
tho co-operative marketing plan,"
says tho statement by the bank, "we
wish to stato that we heartily en
dorso it, and without hesitating fur
ther, advise every cotton grower in
tliis and adjoining counties to join rf

do this there can be no hope of lift
