pal business Is to grow cotton In Im

cation are ranch owners and business
men of Los Angeles and Memphis,
Tenn. It was originally intended te
form a large company, but on account
of the very limited time before cot
ton planting it was decided to work
along more modest lines. The capital
of $26,000 will enable the company tc
plant from 2,000 to 3,000 acres in cot
ton, and Itave an Experienced planta
tion manager as superintendent aqd
Justify maintaining a business office
to handle the products. There is said
to be an unlimited demand for cotton
and cottonseed products. In Califor
nia there is a cotton mill that will
use 10,000 bales of cotton. Cotton
mills from Germany and Japan are
reported to be negotiating for some of
the cotton to be raised In the Imperial
valley.
