With deliveries up lo date approximately 4,500 bales, and with daily receipts Increasing steadily, it has become evident that the Blytheville branch office will handle far in exce.ss of the 10,000 bale seasonal minimum, conligent upon which the' office was established. There has been a steady growth in association membership in this" territory since the office was opened, until now approximately 15.000 hales are pledged to the cooperative. New members are coming in daily, and many old members have already delivered cotton in excess of their contract obligations. Ben Phillips, local manager, said today that it seemed certain the office would handle at least 20,000 bales, and many predict total deliveries of 25,000 or more. .- Rapid increase in-the volume ol deliveries last, week made necessary an enlargement of the local stun". A second office man was added last week and anolher classei •Is due to arrive tonight, thus giving the office a slaff of six, including two classers, two office men. a field represenlativc and a sample toy. Staple Has Improved The first deliveries, early this month, v:ere largely of prematurely opened cotton, short, In staple and weak in fibre, but the last week or iwo has seen a very marked improvement in quality, until now a major part of the association's receipts are better ttian an inch in staple. A good 'deal of very shoVt cotton is still coming 'from ;• the/Leaqhvilie territory, K but else• wbere"-«*i»wmber : rains : and krW- coming on of the later crop have . resulted in very noticeable improvement.. This has largely eliminated complaints as .to the class given by the association. Deliveries are'coining from all parts of the territory served by the local office, which 'embraces Mississippi ' county and part of southeast -Missouri. Some deliveries are •• also being made from Poinsett and Croighead counties. Officers of the Mid-South association are well pleased with, the volume of business which the Blytheville branch is doing. Mr. Phillips said this morning. Deliveries here exceed those at any other office of the organization except thr inain offlce at Memphis, which is said to be handling close to 2,000 bales a- day. Other branch offices are at Marl anna and Helena, and at Dyersbiirg. Tenn. Good Quality Encouraged Local men who were active in obtaining the co-op branch here are also well pleased with the way it is working out. Besides the bene- flls which will come through the orderly marketing of a substantial part of (he crop in a year of unfavorable market conditions, they see also that the association policy of selling cotton and settling .with members strictly on the basis of the grade and staple of th,e cotton delivered provides a needed in' cenlive to the growing of desir- r able varieties. Farmers who in [he past have sold Iheir cotton on the "hog round' plan at a price largely based on the average quality and value of .MEMPHIS,,Sept:, 29.

Explaining' his statement the prohibition director said: "Our men must have warrants before any search can be made and to get a warrant there must be evidence ot sale. There are also insurmountable obstacles'iii reaching the small home .violator. ''Besides, T have always understood that the basic philosophy ol prohibition was aimed at the big 'commercial violators.

Nexl year, it Is predicted, many growers will switch lo varieties yielding a staple oy\\ inch or belter. "CriU /n of the association for failure 16 place a value <~. ... trcmely short cotton equal to the - price some buyers have been paying for It- is not justified by the facts," Mr. Phillips declared. "The association policy Is lo obtain for ils members the highest possible return for their cotton. If we were to allow more than Its actual worth (or short cotton we would have to penalize the man who delivers long cotton. That would be neither fair nor good business. It is the kind of buying policy that has encouraged Ihe production of short cotton in (his territory and that is largely responsible for the decline . In recent years of the average quality of Blylhevllle coltcfi."
