PLAN RAPIDLY' DEVELOPING'"
For Formation of Big Cotton Export
Columbia, April 22.-Plans for the
formation of a big cotton export cor
poration with. a capital stoc k of one
or two hundred million dollars are
rapidly being worked out says a
statement issued today by the South
Carolina Cotton Association. It is un
derstood, says the statement, that the
city of Birmingham, Ala., alone, is
preparing to take $10,000,000 of the
stock of the new corporation.
"The committee appointed at the
recent meeting in Memphis," says the
statement "to work out the details
of the formation. of a great cotton ex
port corporation with a capital stock
of- $10;000,000 is proceeding very
carefully with Its task but it is
learned that the plans are .being ra
pidly worked out. The proposition is
said to be finding great favor. over the
entire South and there is every reas
on to believe that it will be put over.
"The.committee has not yet acted on
the suggestion of conference held in
Columbia last week that the capital
stock of the proposed corporation be
made $200,000,000 instead of $100,000
000 as adopted by the Memnhis meet
ing.. The suggestion of ' the ' South
Carolina conference respecting the in
crease of stock will be formally sub
mitted to the committee shortly.
"This corporation will have power
to handle cotton in all of its various
phases, including exporting, market
ing, warehousing and financing; in
fact every phase practically that
touches cotton. It will largely fill
the place in the South, both to the
banks and the general business inter
ests of the South, that the Federal
Reserve Bank fills to the nation."
Regarding the resolution passed at
the conference in Columbia asking the
banks of the State ,to increase their
canital stock, the statement say?:
"The assoi tion has transmitted to
the bankers o: the State the resolu
tion passed at the conference urging
that they increase their capital stock
50 per cent. It is known that the
matter is being given careful conside
ration by the bankers of the State
and we have reason to hope that
many will comply with the request."
