This is an appeal to Cotton Farmers for help! f Milk producers and feeders must have protein feed (cottonseed meal) in order to maintain production. production. Already herds of dairy cattle and unfinished beef cattle are being sold because they can't get feed and have to pay prices for low protein per cent feed which causes them to operate at a loss. Every day more are forced nearer giving up. That means less and less milk and meat needed for babies, growing children, hospitals, sick people, convalescents convalescents as well as men in service and every member member of the family. We can ill afford to go without these vitally important foods. Many of you farmers were caught short unsuspectingly unsuspectingly last year and are taking no chances this year by demanding your full eight sacks of meal for every ton of seed you sell. Many of you honestly won't need that much meal over the year. Milk producers producers in particular need it desperately NOW! Our aggregate supply should be as great or greater than last year. The local oil mill has not contracted out-of-county accounts as in normal years and only certificated meal is going out of the county. You can help, Mr. Farmer, because you have the key to the situation, simply by sharing your cottonseed cottonseed meal, you know how much you reasonably must have during the year. You know what you can spare. We appeal to SHARE IT NOW. When you sell your seed, won!t ygu PLEASE DESIGNATE AS MUCH OF YOUR CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE MEAL AS YOU CAN FOR SALE TO MILK AND MEAT PRODUCERS? Gins and the cotton oil mill will see that it goes where it ought to go to produce the most food immediately. Yes sir, Mr. Farmer, this is your baby, too. If milk producers and feeders are to continue to operate operate they must have this extra meal; otherwise milk cows will be sold to other areas for meat. Feeder pens will be emptied and the protein feed market these two classes have created, will wither away. Everybody will be hurt Won't you help? Share Your Meal... Keep and Meat Production Coming! This appeal for help is being made by local producers as well as others who appreciate the urgency of this need. It is the patriotic duty of all who can, to help relieve the situation in every possible way. M. 0. Hamby F. W. White Nile Bailey C. W. White R. L. Sherrod W. L. White W. H. Denton Mareus Davidson N.
