in Advances te Members.
Columbia, Oct. 2. - The South
Carolina Cotton Growers' Co-opera
tive Association has paid out in ad
vances to its members over $1,500.
000. Cotton is pouring into concen
tration points, warehouses and re
ceiving stations daily in largo lots,
and tho groat organization which the
farmers ?f tho State has set'In mo
tion for the purp??e of marketing
their crop is functioning In a splon
4ld manner. .
TiirtElfti !tf*Ve ?ri Idea of how the cotton
Sl^Wuriiig lh,'it may b? "at?fed that
'$h last Thursday there wore over
pd hundred carloads of cotton con
signed to the association on tho At
lantic Coast Lino railroad alone for
tho concentration warehouse at Co
lumbia. This, of course, did not in
clude cotton consigned to tho asso
ciation's concentration warehouses
at Spartanburg and Greenville on
that railroad, nor did 1* include any
of tho cotton consigned to any of thc
three concentration points hy tho
other railroads of tho State. It did
not inclndo any of tho cotton receiv
ed at t,ho association's local ware
houses over the State. .
So far as association officials have
been able to ascertain, the members
of tho organization are standing
most loyally hy it. There have lieen
no reported violations of the contract
as yet. Should there ho any they
will be dealt with most vigorously,
and thc full penalty of the law ap
Much old cotton is hoing turned
over to the association. It ls esti
mated that almost half of tho cot
ton turned over to tho association to
dato is old cotton. Hundreds of mem
bers delivered lt to the association
and hundreds moro havo signified
their intention of doing so.

present shortage of cotton supplies
and tho prevailing low spot market
values offered the growers, the com
mittee unanimously recommended
that spot cotton be held off tho mar
kets for an averago of all grades of
SOV^c. per pound, as a fair and rea
sonable price. Tho cotton growers
throughout tho StTto and South and

the staple at prices less than tho
cost of production plus a reasonable
profit, lt was the consensus of opin
ion that if war starts in Europe the

resolution calling upon the, Ameri
can Cotton Association to immedi

South-wide campaign for greater
crop diversification, drastic, cotton
acreage reduction In 1023, and urg
ing upon all growers to stop selling
cotton at present low prices and re
fuso to market the staple for less
than averago cost, plus a rensonnblo
tiently believed by all present at thc
meeting that If strong resistance to
existing low markets is made by tho
growers all over thc belt, in a vory
short poriod of time tho logltlmato
laws of supply and demand will
function, with much higher prices
prevailing In tho opon markets.

tee were present, and all were vory
strongly of tho?opinion Hint if 10,
000,000 bales of cotton in 1022, with

ford tho growers cost pr leo for
