Control of Cotton Crop Discussed by
FOLLOW MOSES' LEAD
Tells Manufacturers Many Growers
Favor Limitation for Five
The American Cotton association
yesterday made public a statement
issued by J. Skottowe Wannamaker
Opresident, which it announced that
it had telegraphed and cabled te
many, dixerent lines of the cottor
industry, especially the leading
manufacturers abroad, who have re
quested definite information con
cerning the outlook for the produc
tion of cotton for the ensuing years,
the attitude of the holders of Ameri
can cotton for cotton now on hand
for which they can got only about
one-third the cost of production, and
the outlook for the coming crop.
The statement follows: "The cot
ton producers of America have posi
tively decided to be guided by th<
wisdom of Moses, -who gained greal
success by limiting production. Th<
lands of Egypt under mandate lait

roads of the boll weevil now cov
ering 77 per cent. of the cotton belt
bring to every lina .f the cottor
industry a national and international
problem. Its ravages not only
enormously reduce cotton production
but fearfully inecease the hazard
and expense of production.
"A referendum vote submitted to
the cotton producers of the 14 cottor
growing states on: First, total elim
ination of the cotton crop for th<
year 1922, and if necessary every
other ye:'.r, for the purpese of fight.
