In special session In Columbia today
of the Bankers' Association.
The bankers by resolution, urged
all bankers in the state, both state and
national to subscribe for their full
quota of stock, 3 per cent of capital
and surplus, and where possible 5 per
cent, the limit permitted by law.
The resolution intended to secure
reduction in cotton acreage, said:
"It is the sense of the South Caro
lina Bankers' Association that the
fa ruie:s of the state should reduce the
coiton acreage planted next year by
50 per cent and that the banks should

Governor Cooper Replies to Skottowe
Wannamaker on TliIs Question as
Well as Acreago Reduction.
Columbia, Nov. 26.-J. Skottowe
Wannamaker, president of the Ameri
can Cotton, Association, today made
public the following letter which he
has received from Governor Cooper:
It. has been inlpossib!o for. me to
answer your telegram of the first in
stant until now. The delay is due 'to
the fact that I wanted to give very
serious consideration to your sugges
tions with reference to postponement
of the time for the payment of taxes
an0d the reduction of cotton acreage
by legislative enactment.
"I am1 sure you know of lmy deep
interest in the work being done by the
Amcrican Cotton Association. The
.situalLoltn which confronts the people
o1 the South is a serious one. This
i, a time, for clear thinking and cour
agV ous a:d conservative action. We
are facing a loss in the 1920 crop
bas:eld on the present market prices.
PiIs obvious that people now 'engaged
hi agriculture must change their
:nei hod of farlinig if they are to ex
pc" a iprofitable return for their la
bor and mloley invested. I believe
the condition of the farmer as a whole
iluelh better now than it ,was four
or five yearls ago. Time ip'resellt situa
tio: Is only It llorary. I tim con
vincd that the price of cotton will
:materially aIvalce before the produc
tion of another cro). 1 am also sure
that there must be a re(lcton of cot
ton acreage in 1921, and a correspond
ing increase in the planting of grain
an( other feed and food crops. There
must be an increase in the production
of cattle, hogs, etc. We must look
the situation as it is squarely in the
face. We have every natural advant
age. I am sure that your organi:a
t'on has suItllcicnt intelligenese and
