"The Southern Cotton Association
will not ask the farmers of the South
to reduce the cotton acreage for 1906
less than that planted in 1905. The as
sociation does ask, and insists with all
the force at its command, however,
that all the acreage planted in cotton
throughout the belt in 1905 be notjin
creased during the planting season of
1906. Let the watchword of every
southern farmer be diversification, and

"The present estimated 27,000,000
acres planted in cotton is sufficient un
der normal climatic conditions to pro

stagnate the cotton market and depress
priced below their legitimate value.
The legitimate law of supply and de
mand is the only true medium for regu
lating fair and legitimate prices for our
great staple product."
President Jordan closes the letter
with a strong appeal to the farmers to
plant an abundance of small grain, corn
and side crops and urges them to raise
more hay, cattle and hogs that the
farms may become more self-sustain
