Tcnn. —May 13— A statewide campaign to enlist Ark- nnsjis cotton interests in active support of the National Cotton Council's industry-wide research and promotion program hns been an- nnoded by L. T. Bnrrhiger. cotton merchant and chairman of the council's Arkansas Unit. The need for intensified cotton research and sales effort during the year will be greater than at any time since the war. Mr. Biivriiiger said. He pointed nut that I he past year has seen (lie end of ivar- created consumer goods shortages. "Cotton, like every otber fiber, is operating in a /reel}' competitive market." the council chairman said. "\Ve will find markets for onr products only to the extent that we •xoffct tlie public a more desirable Vproduct than our competitors, and then only il we tell the consumer the facts that make cotton goods more desirable." Mr. BariitiKer likewise pointed to (lie large cotton crop of ia-18 and to prospects of even larger crop in 194D as being factors necessitating a broadening of cottotl industry's program. "Unless the cotton industry uses the tools of research and promotion to the fullest extent it is likely thai we shall again be confronted with the problem o! a substantial carryover," he said.
