THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 1931 BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKKI r Arkansas News Briefs— Kline Advises State's Farmers to Put Cotton In U.S. Loan Program By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WEST MEMPHIS—The President of the American farm Bureau ration has advised Arkansas cotton farmers to put their crop in the federal loan program. Allan B. Kline told the Crittenden County Farm' Bureau Federation here last night that: "... If I were an Arkansas farmer, I would pui my cotton In the loan because the domestic demand is good and because the foreign market » good. If the market price increases above the government support level of 30 and 46-.100 cents a pound before the deadline for redemption, you can withdraw jour cotton and sell it at the higher market price." Kline's statement was obvious approval of a plan to prevent a wide-open break in the market, devised last week by producers, buyers and consumers meeting in New Orleans. These experts decided to advise farmers to put their cotton In the loan progriim and keep it there long enough to feed it to the market at a rate which would not cause prices to break. Kline said that farmers are not getting rich off their farm products as some people think. "While agriculture's net income in 1947 was Just under $17.8 billion, in 1950 net agricultural income was just under $13 billion. "This was in spite of the 'serious' rise in farm prices that took place in the last half of 1950, which many are decrying and without which many farmers would be in difficult straits indeed."
