THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN. PHOENIX, FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 2. 1921. "Stick To Pima" Advice Given By English Cotton And Linen Expert A few days ago The Republican printed a brief letter by James Ken dall, an English cotton and linen ex pert, Tvho was then visiting Thoenix, advising against the introduction into this valley of any other type of cot ton than Pima, fabrics from which he handled extensively. Since leaving Phoenix Mr. Kendall, who now re f Ides' at Pasadena, has written -The Republican at greater length on the same subject: "By way of Introduction, Is It not strange that certain cotton growers! in Arizona should be at variance re garding the long andshort staple? How any cotton grower or any one for the matter of that can abandon a one variety system of cotton grow ing to experiment with is more than I can understand in other words, making cotton growing a chance proposition a mighty poor invest ment. "Of course I am referring to the present controversy or disputation regarding the certain type of cotton to be grown in Arizqna whether it's more profitable to grow short staple or the long staple the fundamental basis of the argument pro or con. As it Is well known the Pima cotton is the long staple and it measures from 1& to 1 inches, whiter in color than the Yuma, and has a beautiful silky finish, and its wearing qualities su perior to any cotton, bar none. In fact, the Pima cotton long staple is in a class all its own. "For my part I cannot understand how any cotton grower will persist in a purpose by way of an experi ment o a cotton of an inferior type to displace Pima, the long staple which has been developed to its pres- 3 QUALITY IN MEN'S WEAR SINCE 1875 No More Thrills Buying a suit of clothes was a serious matter in the early 80's. "Trading," as they called it then, was an all-day event and the price a man paid for his suit .depended on his bargaining abil ity and endurance powers. When Goldbergs went into business they marked all mer chandise in plain figures for all to -read and the price to one man was the price to another no more, no less. NowTDuying holds no thrills quality and style may be taken for granted- and we still have but one price, marked low in the beginning. , This season we are showing wonderful values in men's suits for all ages, $35, $40, $45 You'll do better at 1 II Ml Mill II II IIWIIWI IHM u mi mi mi r n i-wju'- i r'---TB-'1r"-f p"""-r" ent high standing and for which a market is being steadily established. Lrfiok up official cotton standards of the United States for reference. 'Personally I . have not had the pleasure of meeting Dr. T. II. Kear ney or O. F. Cook or Mr. Parker. I just drifted into Phoenix quietly and am now staying at the Santa Rita, Tucson. I am merely guided by my own intelligence, my knowledge and my vast experience in handling fin ished goods made of Egyptian cotton and some Pima cotton long staple. My great experience and knowledge is indisputable. "Many years ago In England vast shipments of finished goods would pass tl-J-ough my hands, consign ments filr Australia. India, New Zea land, Soiith Africa, Canada, China and many other places too numerous to mention; all of these countries pre ferred Egyptian cotton, their first preference. In all of these places mentioned the writer resided to get data. Can you realize for one mo ment, can your brain grasp' the mag nitude of this great cotton industry? Can you realize the volume of busi ness I transacted and samples counted by tile glass a gauge for counting shots or number of threads to the square inch and linen like wise? "And why' not Pima cotton, the long staple? Why not this wonderful out let, especially now when the Egyp tian cotton is in the state of de terioration and the number of bales has been reduced by many, many thousand, something like 500,000 bales or more. To the cotton growers of Arizona I would say. Oh you of little faith, take courage, and if you have at any time mixed the breeds try and remember President Harding's ever memorable address, It must never happen again.' "I would like to write my Impres sions in full regarding the possibili ties of Pima cotton, the long staple. The possible demand, and -what won derful climatic condition you haye in Arizona to grow nothing but the unadulterated long staple Pima cot ton, and with your vast acreage and climate you have no real cause to switch off from a long staple to a short one. The possible demand for Pima long staple is untold. Let me suggest propaganda. "In place of a population of 300,000 people you would have millions. The writer can see the busy Lancashire mills turning out great quantities of Pima cotton, the long staple, l can picture thousands of bales . being shipped by rail to all parts of the world. Can see uaivesion loauuis wie ships to every clime. I can picture Phoenix, Tucson, with many new ho tels, crowing by leaps and bounds. Can see better highways, greater wealth and greater happiness. "How I wish I could devote my time for the few vears I have to live to the cause of Pima cotton long staple. On every piece of finished eoods I would have a label printed Made of Pima Long Staple. Have it in everv department store through put this wonderful country. Have housewives demand it for their sheets and cases, forbaby clothes, for their husbands and sons shirts and for their own personal use, "be cause -the Pima cotton long staple has a beautiful silky finish, its color is whiter and for its lasting quality no other brand can take its place, not even the Egyptian. "It is a real pleasure to handle Pima cotton long staple, said the salesman to nis cus tomers. I would have the words Pima Long Staple in every street car, on electric sign, boards, on every screen in every theater. Why, Pima long staple would become a House hold name like Heinz's pickles 57 Varieties. ' You would over night have an established market for the Pima cotton long staple. "Cannot the readers of this article grasp the possibilities? I can see China and India, the greatest of all markets, buying you out and even England although she Is wedded to Egyptian cotton, demanding it. I can see the buyers of Europe and the Colonies and the Orient coming here and spending their good money in your hotels to see where the Pima cotton long staple is grown. So get busy Mr. Cotton Grower and grow more acreage of the Pima cotton long staple to supply your future buyers with. Get down to business and stop all this argument and decide for all time only one type of cotton known as the Pima cotton long staple. Who wants the short staple cotton? Who wants the short ends of flax? Did you ever hear the story of how the linen manufacturers experimented with the short ends (short staple) of the flax (linen) in Scotland, in Eng land, in Ireland by making damask cloths that were always used for coarse toweling, etc. etc., into sightly looking table cloths. How they got busy and boiled aid boiled the yarns short ends of flax to make the yarn finer, spun it and made damask cloths and then bleached them in Scotland because the water, and for other reasons Scotland is more suit able as no linen can be truly bleached in England. Linen is also bleached in Belfast, Ireland, and there are many bleacheries in Ireland. "Well, to make a long story short er, these sightly looking damask table cloths and napkins were grabbed up because of the cheaper prices than the good double damask made of long staple were. They were sent to the London market and I was one of the first buyers to place or ders of this brand in immense quan tities an experiment. Result was, a general kick from the British ad miralty and the civil service to the everyday housewife how poorly they did wear. Of course they didn't wear. They were perished before they were placed on the market. The yarn was perished-in the boiling. "This is a parallel case. The larger the staple the better it will wear and hence the greater demand for higher grade of cotton and linen. Don t commercialize your long staple Pima I mean keep up the standard. Buy ers won t buy short (staple unless they hove to. Don t strangle your Pima cotton long staple in its in fancy. It's a dangerous experiment to spot your wonderful valley in Ari zona with short staple. Please don t do it. And if there is no politics i' the cotton game leave well enough alone leave it to impartial experts who have your interests at heart. "This cross-breeding, like all cross breeding and in-breeding, will pro duce Inferior cotton and will be a drug in the market and no prices, and you will have no lasting market, while they will continue to go to Egypt for their finer grade. "Many years ago I had a wonderful dog; it was certainly a beautiful creature. I decided to take it to Madison Square, New York, dog show, hoping to get the liighest award. Instead I received the third award, .James Mortimer the greatest living authority on dogs 'at that time was the judge. And, by the way. I was a guest of his in his beautiful Long Island home. He eaid, 'Mr. Kendall, the reason you didn't receive from me the highest award for your dog was because she is in-bred." "This is another parallel case re garding the long and short and mix ing breeds staple. Don't go in for cross-breeding. 'You will receive the third award instead of the first.' This argument about the dog and the cot ton is th same thing, only a little different. The important difference between the Pima and the Yuma va rieties are that the Pima long staple has a whiter color and a longer staple. "In conclusion by way of paren thesis would say that in France they make up the handkerchiefs and other soft materials of the finest Egyptian grown cotton long staple of course. The fabric is so sheer in texture and so beautifully soft with a sheen that it is often mistaken for the pure sheer linen. The wealthy Americans and other nationalities not knowing the difference buy these handker chiefs and soft materials, thinking l they are buying the genuine article, the pay from 36 to $75 per dozen for handkerchief including a very handsome monogram, the monogram being the attractive feature and everything to the handkerchief. The Parisian, the Londoner, the New Yorker will buy these handkerchiefs ad these beautiful soft materials re gardless of the cost. Then, why not have these handkerchiefs and soft materials made of .Pima cotton long staple because of its silky finish? Make it an American home industry home product and to duty at tached, and why not? "The quesion is, to be. or not to be, Pima long staple, or short staple of mixed breeds. Of course it's up to the Arizona cotton growers to solve their own problems.'' LAST CHANGE TO RESERVE A TABLE Only one day remains in whicii to make reservations for the Junior Guild bridge tea and bazaar. The long list of reservations has grown longer each day and but a few ta bles remain. These may be ob tained i by calling Mrs. C. H. Young, 2422. Early Christmas shoppers will take advantage of the bazaar's attractive display to fill their Christmas list. Many practical and pretty things for the little folks will be for sale, as well as innumerable ones for grown ups. Parcel post and candy booths will also come in for their share of at tention. The Day Nursery fund will thus be swelled and another needy kiddie cared for and fed. o EF OUfi PERMITS STOCK ES Four corporations were authorized to sell stock by the corporation com mission yesterday..
