A Sound Local Situation . Last spring and summer, when farmers and business men were borrowing money which they expectul lo repay out of the proceeds of crops tliuy were making and full Inisini-ss to which they were looking forward, it was not unusual to hear complaints against the parsimonious and pemiy-pi.'.cliing altitude of our local bankers. But the bankers were light. By enforcing economical operation, so far as was in their power, they prevented a good many of us from going broke as a result of drouth and low prices, and alhey :also preserved their institutions against the dangers which always arrive when a period of easy borrowing is followed by a period of price depression and slack business. Now, when many nearby communities are experiencing the hardships and tragedies always attendant upon the suspension or failure of banks, our Blytheville institutions are in outstandingly sound condition. Their deposits are relatively low for this season of the y-;ar, which is natural, but their outstanding loans arc proportionately even lower, thiis enabling them and their patrons to face with assurance a business situation that might have beeii dangerous had a less conservative policy been followed earlier in the year. The outlook for the months immediately ahead of us is certainly not a highly encouraging oni for cither farmers or business men. But the whole situation, locally, is fundamentally so sound as to provide the basis- for the rapid return'of prosperity. Despite adverse conditions the grrat majority of farmers are managing to clean up their crop loans. We will go into the new year without any tremendous load of unpaid debts. Credit for farming or any other kind of business will undoubtedly be restricted here and generally throughout the south. But that will simply speed the recovery. 1 It will bring about cotton acreage reduction, for one thing, with a prospect of an improved price, and it will force growers to make their crops at a minimum cost, for another, which means they will have more actual cash money at the end .of tha year. All in ail, aside from the obvious necessity of cutting our cloth pretty closs for some little lime to come, the OUT OUR WAY prospect for Blytheville mid Mississippi county cannot be described as anything 1 but good, NOVEMBER 13. 1930 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Contracts Should Be Fulfilled The local branch office of the Mid- South Cotton Growers association has already hnndl.d over 10,000 bales of cotton,-an amount suli.stantially above that conlractwl for and fiO per c'jnl above the minimum needed tu insure its success. The branch office system, so far at least as Hlytlicvill; is concerned, has passed the experimental stage. Wo think the rc-nlls guarantee that Uu> local oll'icc- will lie a purmniunt institution. There is one element of weakness in the local situation, however, which, if shared by of tha co-operatives, merit's the serious attention of officers and members alike. Deliveries of Mississippi county cot- loif to the co-opcrativo are in excess of the volume eon traded for. liut that is because a good' many members, notably some of the largest and ablest planters in Hie county, have made deliveries several times llu> amount called for in their contracts. Tliny have donu this- as a matter of good business, and we trust future developments will prove them right. On the other hand a good many who siifiud contracts have made no deliveries at iill. The question now is what the association will do about these latter eases. In.some instances farmers have failed to produce the cotton whicli they contracted to <l?livcr, 'which of course lets them out. Others have offered cotton which, because of poor grade or staple, could be accepted by the association only on an unfavorable basis, and the association has wisely |»rmil- led such members In dispose of their cotton elsewhere if they could get a better price for it. Still others, presumably, will fulfill their contracts before the close of tho season. The pin-pose of a co-operative association is to help farmers, not to place burdens upon them. Hut it de|>omls for its success upon ths supiwit and loyalty of its members. A contract is a contract, and to break one is a serious mailer. The success of I he co-operative movement demands that co-operative live up to their pledges. Excess of Sugar in Poods Makes Baby Pale and Flabby By DR. MORRIS FISIIBICIN Kilter Medic , .
