CROPAGREEMENTS ✓ Every Effort Being Made To Obtain Cooperation Os All Growers Crop contracts for both tobacco am* co ton are still finding their way into the office of J. W. Sanders, county .arm agent, who is in charge of both campaigns in this county, it wa.; learned today. The tb'bacco drive wa. formally closed January 20. but number of late contracts that wen offered were i revived and accepter and arc being forwarded on to Ih< Slate officials in Haleigh to be ap proved I line and .sent, to Washington It is expected that a step order ma;. he sent here at any time from Stab headquarters, yet at the same, time there is a. great, desire on the part of the directors of the campaign to obtain the cooperation of every pos sible grower, and for that reason no contracts turned in have as yet been refused. The rule appears to be ap plicable to both the toiacco and eor ‘on campaigns. Mr. Sanders has said that nearly all tobacco growers in this county have signed the agreement for that .crop, and that nearly all cotton far mers have signed except a few smal ler one with only two or three acre to be planted. Plans have been work ed out. however, for even their co operation on a small scale, and finu efforts at*ei'being made to ass fife tin. cooperation, .of every, grower ,qf hot; crops in this county, if such ‘-a thing may be possible. ?»'■> ’’- b L_' ' : f .y At Maria Parham Hospital With Broken Back; D.

SHEPPARD WITHOUT SEED LOAN ORDERS Meantime, Financial Representative Here Is Pushing Collections On Old Credits It. L. Sheppard, who has directeu eed loan activities in this county for he past several years said today he had as yet received no instructions or blanks with which to proceed in arranging seed loans this year. Con ■icsfc has niados. $16,000,000 available or seed loans in 11)3/1, but every ef lort is being made to route these redits through the* production credit • orpupations, and the ruling bus been »iade that no seed ■ loans can be oo aiheil until tlie application has first been to the production corpora - tion and refused there. Growers in tlilsscpunty who obtain ed seed loans early ifi 1933 shared ths fall prosperity to the extent that al of them but a fraction of one percent of the borrowers paid out in full for Lhat year’s credits, and also liquidat ed many thousands of dollars worth of loans made to them in previous years which at the time they wen unable to liquidate because of small crops and low prices. But prices were much better for both tobacco and cot ton in the fall of 1933, and that en ab ed many growers to square them selves with the world, or at least vith the Federal government.
