This system of Sellin? has proven it
self to be of inestimable value in
many lines of farm products, and
cotton will be no exception. In fact,
Texas and Oklahoma are already

In this State over 4 0,000 halos
have been signed up, and the cam
paign is just beginning to start in
several counties. Anderson, Plck
ons, Greenville, Greenwood, Abbe-'
ville and practically all the other;
counties have men chosen to lead the
campaign or to assist the county
agents in -putting it before tlhe peo
ple. J. H. Brown has been chosen as
county campaign director for Oconee
toy District Director Bramlett!
'Darlington county, formerly >^o
of the banner cotton counties of the
State, has already signed up 60 per
cent of her entire production. Spar
tanhurg, Marion and Sumter have
each signed np over five thousand
balee ?ach, while Dillon county only
the other week signed up four thou
sand hales.
Not a State which has started tfltis
campaign for efficient marketing has
failed lo succeed In getting the min
imum quota. Oklahoma has 400,
000 bales signed, Texas around 700,
000, Mississippi 300,000, Arizona
nhout 25,000, and North Carolina
All of these contrncts are similar
to tho South Carolina contract-all
designed by Aaron Sapiro, noted at
torney for fourteen co-operative as
sociations of California. This 8:?Ce
Is going niter 400,000 bales, based
upon the members' production In
1920; Georgia 400,000, Arkansas
100.000, while FlorHda, 'Aloha nt,,
Tennessee and California are plan
ting to come into thp^same system.

hey were receiving for their cotton

rade and staple, from $5 to $15 a

It is readily seen where this could
e so when it is known that cotton
n the association will be sold on
cttial grade and staple vaule, in
argo lots of even-running grades,
