Missouri ginners had little incentive to handle the ton properly at the gins. "Before the program to. improve Missouri cotton was inaeigiirated." Mr. Amburgcy related, "Missouri farmers sold the larger porlion of ''their colton crops to gfuncrs In the seed. Under this practice, the producer would fill up his high-boar:le:l wagons with raw cotton directly from his fields and sell the loads diilrijrhl. He was selling weight- not grade and .staple length. Very .seldom did he have his loads of raw cotton ginned into separate bales, then sell tlie hales on their own classes. Subsequently, the bulk of Hie cotton was delivered to the gins In bud order where it was stored in uig cotton houses and ginned out IOC or more bales in a row. "Through this 'selling In the seed' system of handling cotton," Mr. Ambmgey continued, "diirerenl varieties became mixed with the result that oftime.s there would be its own class.

"It became evident that the Arkansas-Missouri state line was :i division between high and -low prices for cotton, from the Missouri farmer's viewpoint. The discrimination against Missouri cotlon became so great ilia tin some cases a efw Missouri growers known to produce long staple, high guide cotton have been offered warehouse facilities in Arkansas so they could sell their colton as Arkansas-grown and thus not suffer the loss the same cotton would sustain if sold in Missouri as Missouri-grown. "In fact the last five years," Mr. Ambiirgey said, "Missouri growers and ginners through concerted, cooperative efforts have modernizes their methods for seeding, harvesting nnd ginning colton with the i'1'siill dial each year prices psilS for Missouri rotton are more on ; Par with these paid for cotton ir Northeast Arkansas and oilier cot- Ion sections.
