Clemson College, September 30.
Cherokee County is leading the way
in the organization. of community
warehouses for storing cotton, as is
shown by the report below from
County Agent 'S. C. Stribling, who 1s
actively promoting this good -work in
conjunction with the Cotton Associa
tion and the State Warehouse Com
"During the 'week I succeeded in
getting community cotton warehouse
comupanies organized in the .\iacedo
lia and the MlKown Mountain con
nunities, Each company1 has the full
stock subscribed, the olliders elected
and has taken steps to immediately
build -100-balt' houses. These will
make five such organizations per
fected within the last few days, nnd
th< re is a prol:ability that at least two,
(Mther cotmmui ties will f'orm similar
orogizations ' (liing the coming
Viee'k. There will likely be two plan
-alion houses built also."
