President of South Carolina Cotton
Association Suggests Nine Ways to
Aid lit Selling Cotton at Profit.
Columbia, June 20.-The cooperative
marketing association which is -being
formed by the South Carolina division
of the American Cotton Association
proposes to effect many absolutely
necessary reforms in the present sys
tem of cotton selling, according to R.
C. Hamer, president of the association.
"Specifically," said Mr. Haier, "I
expect the association to do the fol
lowing definite things for its members:
"F'irst, it will grade. staple and
weigh each able of cotton delivered
to it by its members.
"Second, it will warehouse all cot
ton delivered to it by its members.
This will at once reduce the trenien
dous loss from 'country damage' esti
mated at from $6 the bale upward.
"Third, it will sell all of its cotton
in even running lots, each grade and
stap)le within its own ;'ool. This will
assure a highr price than can be ob
tained in anyv other way and save to
the producers the cost and profits of
middlemen and speculators who buy
mixed lots from growers and, after
concentration mnd classification sell in
even lots to mills, at higher prices.
"Fourth, it will sell its own saipl-,
and warehouse certificates. This will
again reduce another heavy loss,
known as the 'city crop' and prevent
"FIith, it 'will sell collectively and
only when the market demands it.
This vill reduce specialization and
tend to stabilize prices.
"Sixth, it will sell its cotton as di
reetly as possible. This will elimi
nate many present -wasteful bethods,
shorten the route between the :ro
ducer and spinner and secure for the
producer a larger share of the price
paid by the, spinn(er.
"Seventh, it will determine the cost
of production of cotton. This will as
sist in asking a price which w.ill yield
a profit to the producer.
"Eighth, it will encourage and de
velople the production of uniform and
standard varieties. This will assist
still further in pool selling and in
sen((ring a better price.
"Ninth. it will advise with growers
on production methods and prolblems.
This will be essentially helpful and
"This program can be carried out
only in one way and that is under the
plan of organization outlined in the
maiketig agreement of the cooperative
associatio. This association will begin
to function when a membership rep
resenting at least 100,000 bales of cot
ton is secured. Each member, regard
loss of the number of bales lie produc
es, signs a legally binding marketing
cont::act with the association, repre
senting himself and every other mem
ber, in which all members agree to
sell all of their cotton through the as
sociation for a period of five years.
This guarantees that the association
wtill stiek and that it will b~e able to
d,-liver the goods."'

Providence, R. I., June 15.-Secre
tary of State Charles E. Hughes told
a gathering of his fellow alumni of
Brown university today that it was
not desirable that Amerilca's helpful
influence should be frittered away "by
relating ourselves unnecessarily to ao
litical questions which involve rival
ries of interest abroad with which we
hIave no proper concern."
"It is equally true," he continued
"that we cannot escape our relation
to the economic problems of the
He said the 'prosperity of this coun
try largely depended upon the eco
npmic settlements which mi-ght be
made in Europe and that the key to
the future was with those who made
and control those settlements. Amer
Ica, the exemplar of free institutions,
aiding humanity in their preservation,
he said, called forth the- supreme en
deavor in the World War.
"This sentiment is still with us," he
added, "We have not lost the capacity
for the high and unselfish endeavor
which linked us In an unexampled
unity and joy of service in the crisis
of the great war. The spiings of
fai'h, of mutual trust, of imperialistic
d1signs and cunning purpose or to
protect a land where avarice might
find its surest reward. They offered
their lives and all the energies of the
country were harnessed in the su
preine effort, because we loved the in
stitutions of lierty and intended to
maintain them, because we hated
tyranny and the brutality and ruth
lessness which found expression in
the worship of force and because we
found our fate linked with that of the
free peoples who were struggling for
the preservation of the essentials of
freedom. WNith them we made common
cause and, as from one (nd of the
country to the other rang ay:oeals in
the name of civilization itself, tI
whole nation responded."
"It would not be fitting for me at
this time to discuss our forelhn rela
tions. But I am glad to say that the
message of America is one of cordial
friendship to all nations. We have no
subtleties, no duplicity of meaning, no
soft words to conceal a purpose of
self-aggrandizement at others' ex
-pense. The only method of diplomacy
we know is that of candid dticusslon
of the merits of prohlems. ThisN we
think is the way to prosper a cause
believed to be just and we shall ad
vance no other."
