TI I N COTTON CONTHACT
The Advertiser considers the boll
wevi il n ,e as t(e bi"g'est problem
confronting tlie iarmers of ilhe South
today. but next to it and of imediate
I inmport ance it places the problem of
Iiarketing of cot ton after it is grown.
ieretofore the <Ii estion of market
ing cotoll has been very simple. It
(onsisted largely in carrying the cot
ton to town when notes became due
and letting it go at %wh.t it would
bing. It has been a very simple but
;st ly system.
The n plain calls for a coope rat ive
(ffor t of all cotton growers to pool
:hemselves together and attempt to
ilace a valuation upon their labor and
The cotton growers of the South,
without the protection w(hich manufac
turers have had through the tariff and
industrial labor has had through its
unions. have heretofore worked at a
grat disadvantage. Thy have had to
sll their product at whatever price
they could get aIdl pay for their needs
at Prices enhanced by tariffs and labor
The only way for the farmers to ov
ercomte the l one-sided deal that they
have been receiving is to organize on
a sound financial basis as laid out by
the cotton marketing association and
at least try to have a-say-so as to what
their labor is worth.
Laurens county is now being can
vassed in the interest of this associa
tion. Bankers, merchants, manufac
tunrer and large farmers have en
dolsed ile plani. The plan cannot go
through w lt lioit the farmers t hem
