Bailey of Arkansas to governors of the nation's 17 cotton producing states to also attend. Mr. Crafton explained that the purpose of the contest will be to help stimulate a nation-wide interest In cotton and cotton products. He pointed out that Mississippi County affords an Ideal location for holding such a contest since it Is centrally located In the heart of the cotton bell, and Is sitiuttxl on a national highway which makes .i easily-accessible. "iSesldes, Mississippi County Ls the world's largest cotton producing ccuiily with an all-lime record of 255,688 bales made In 1937. We consistently raise more than 200.000 biles annual!)', or approximately one-seventh yield," Mr. of Arkansas' Crafton said. total "This amounts to more than one percent of the yield of the entire nation. Blytheville Is also one of the llrst six Inland cotton markcla of Ilia South, u is therefore appropriate "'(it we take the Initiative in any move Dial will serve to stimulate more Interest over Hie country In Cotton and Its products." "We arc confident that annual cotton picking contests such as those we plan to hold will play nn Important part In making America cotton-conscious. They will cer- tninly provide a worth-while spectacle, especially to those visitors from other sections:" lie added. Emphasizing that the contest will not be merely n se:liotial affair, Mr. Cratton said entries will be sought from cverv portion of the cotlon bell In order tint the cotton Picking championship will be a representative title. There will be no restrictions ns to race or age. The competition mil be open to •inyone. Tho conle.st will be held on a specially prepared 100-acre tract which will be planed in a special '-rlcly of cotton sust Milted lo Hie type of soil found here. An attempt will be made lo grow tlie cotton under thc most favorable -Ircumstances with the hope of Possibly setting a new world's production record on the plot. Not a boll will be picked inrtll thc contestants go into the field lo com- Me tot the prizes. However, those In charge,of the contest will not depend on the one tracl because of Ihc possibility of some mishap such ns n severe hailstorm or other accident befalling 11 Several other suitable fields will be selected ns alternate locations.
