By J. E. Trevathan, Cot
in two preceding letters, which I
have written to 'the farmers of Lau
rens county, I have discussed briefly
the character of organizations which
have proved successful In California
und elsewhere; and I also named six
fundamental iprinciples upon nwhich
the plan for the co-operativo cotton
marketing organization is based. As a
result of co-operative marketing in
California, 80 per cent of the farmers
of that state made a proflt on their
farming operations in 1920 while about
95 per cent of the farmers of South
Carolina were losing money by selling
;their Products without any definite
'o-operative marketing has proved
-successful through a period of years
as app.lied to crops other than 1.t1 ton.

Mr Carl Williams of Oklahoma City

sociation, and ho is also ipresident of
the Southern Cotton Growers''Co-op
erative 'Marketing (Exchange, through
which the members of the organiza
.tions of Oklahoma, Mississippi, Texas
and Arkansas are selling cotton this
Mr. Williams states that their or
ganization is selling cotton for its
members for 2 1-2c per pound more
than non-members can -possible get
by selling through the regular chan
nels. Since the Co-operative Market
ing Exchange established headquar
ters at Oklahoma City, fourteen big
firms have opened oflices at Oklahoma
City for the express purpose of buying
cotton fromi the organization.
Arrangements have been made by
Mr. Williams and others whereby the
C'o-operative Cotton Alarketing Asso
(iations can borrow through the Fed
eral Reserve Banks and otherwise as
much as $00,000,000 or more as neced
ed for the punPose of financing the
gradual marketinig of the cotton con
trolled by the organizations. The pres
cut amount of cott on signed up uind
Iin(er tite control of the four organiza
tioss of Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas
and Okldaloma, is 12 per eitt of theI
total in the l'lited Sta tes. This seemsi
like a siall proportion of the total

ing of that eott 'm. This report was
made August 2:1 and crop cond(ition
was reported August 25. Of course
cotton continued to rise after the crop
report was miade.
Co-operative marketing of cotton is
no longer a theory, but it is some
thing that is in successful practice in
four big cotton states. DIetailed at
rangenents have been worked out to
finance the whole movement. The or
ganization in Oklahoma lends 60 per
cent of the value to the cotton on the
day it is idelivered to the organiza
tion, either at the warehouse or at the
railroad. Detailed arrangements have
been worked out tQ protect tite land

"It was either Lord Bellomont, the

have cleared him of the piracy charge,

suppressed in the Admiralty court
The least said nhout Bellomont's ac
