The United ": Stale.: government offers its help in doing this. The Federal Farm Board (with $500.000.000 of- governing; . money at ils command), has'. set j. up an organization which, if .the ! farmers will take advantage 'of -it, j will prove of great benefit to : cbt'-) ion farmers. This organization-is 1 the Mid-South Cotton Growers As- socialion. . . ; Farmers are being given nn op. l»rtiinUy to become members or the co-oper.-.tivc association and I hive- Hie advantages of this government aid. No farmer is being asked to sign all of his production. Part crop marketing contracts are being offered. A local branch oi the associa-. lion will be established at Blytheville it farmers want this service. The office will render grading and classing service and will buy the members cotton and make settlement with them. Several sale", plans arc offered and the fiirmet can use cither or cill of tiiem. Th; cost lo the farmer is set at an established figure and cannot exceed that figure. The grower will know just exactly what his cot- ion grades and will sell it on that basis. The Farm Board and Ihe Mi;l- So:ith Association will come into Blytheville and compete wilh the large colton concerns for colton. Members of the associations will receive Ihe benefit of [his comp?- lilion—those not members of the association will nol have Ihis advantage. The business will be conducted right here at home and i there will be no long waits for your settlements. Much propaganda has been spread by those who are opposing the cooperative movement to the effect lhat il is fore-doomed lo failure. This is mis-information for which there is no foundation. The United Slates government, through Ihe Farm Board, is determined to be of assistance to the cotton farmer if he will give it the chance. Nobody can say lhat the United States government is doomed to fail in any undertaking in which it engages. Until the movement lias failed, it is manifestly unfair and incorrect to predict ils failure. The proposition Is squarely up to the cotion grower. If he .wants government aid it's here for him. Tne aid can only come through co-opcrallve organlzalfons—Ihe farm relief act plainly says thai, and the Far: Board plainly says the same. Further discussion of th.s movement will be grvcn through the local press from time to time. In the meantime, comiltees are working the communities around Bly- thevllle, explaining every detail and feature of the plan. Information can be secured from your couhty agents, any of the hundreds of farmers who have already becom? members of the association OT from members of the agricultural,committee of the Blylheville Chamber of Commerce.
