that will give better interest with

that w i cannot getour farmers out

most of them would think the
world was coming to an end If they
didn't plant cotton. They are like
sin-op. if you can got one to try a.ul
then another, they will finally all
jump into it. Some years ago you
could hear them say, "Oh, I'll plant
