.WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, BLYTHEVILL]B (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAfiB I'HKKK Ark-Mo Ginners Mechanical Processes . Of Cotton Industry £ Will Be Studied HOT SPRINGS, July 12.—"Old King Cotton" Is beginning to realize he is n victim of sx truly modern stream-lined age nnd, like other great national' assets, must undergo the process of mechanization, '• . This will lie fully emphasized, and illustrated at the 27th annual meeting of the Arkansas-Missouri Gln- nei's' Association, which convenes In the Arlington hold, Monday • and Tuesday,- July 17-18. This also will probably be Ihe last convention to be held in this noted hotel for the duration, as the Army will acquire that and two other hotels August 1. U. B. Grcss, Little Hock, sccre tary, declared this will be a "War conference in every sense of the word." "Continued production of cotton under limited labor conditions will be the chief topic of discussion," Mr. Gross said, "and that, of course means mechanical processes will feature tlie programs. It is tlie opinion of well informed men who have devoted the best years of theii life to the cotton industry, that tlie future of cotton, from the standpoint of labor shortage, and compe- tllion from synthetic fibers, depends upon the degree of mechani- ration that can be put into the production of cotton." John E. Roberts, Memphis, president of the Association, will preside. Others scheduled for address es arc C. A. Dennett, Stoneville Miss., engineer in charge of the U cotton ginning laboratory, who'wil speak OH "Mechanical Cotton Farming and Its Effects on Ginncrs.' C. C. Gray, of the Internaliona Harvester Company. Chicago, wil i"'^us5' "Mechanical Cotton Chop B.V>-&" ai 'd J- E. Adams, branch •jiti'lmcnt station, also located Stoneville, Miss., will speak on "Con trol of'Weeds and Grasses in Cot ton by Flaming." Claude J. Byrd agriculturist of American Cynami Corporation, Little Rock, speaks o "Defoliation as an Aid to COtto Harvesting." The latter address ivi be illustrated with motion picture, as will also the speech of Mr. Gra; Officers will be elected and resolutions adopted at Tuesday morning's session. President Roberts has urged a big attendance. ' He stressed the importance of the session. "This season, through use of new machines and processes, a smull amount of cotton is being produced with practically no hand labor, and we have all this, in speech and motion pictures, ready to be presented.

This upsurge should not, ljo\v- ver, be over-emphasized. It Is niiorlnnt mostly In conlrnst with nbnormal depression to which ugar rationing, .scarcity of esscn- al materials, and high pay In idiistrlnl employment, hud driven once nourishing industry. Last March, the most recent lonth for which figures arc avnll- ble, Treasury agents seized 5">l tills and 237,000 gallons of mush. vhich looked high by comparison vith 355 slllls anil only 101.000 gal- ons ol mash for November, 1042 rfash gallons are considered the best Index of moonshiuliiK activity The consistent but slow rise tlml jcgan last year lias not brought noonslilning to an.vthlng npproncli- ng the pre-war level, however.

SHORTAGES NO HARDSHIP ' The quality of the product, li case you haven't risked any of Idle is something less than pediculous It isn't poison—if that gives an> cheer. "I'm making It lo sell, not tc drink," one moonshiner explained. The' price, even for these limes is 'scandalous. It bears little relationship to cost of production, but is controlled by the old economic laws of supply mid -demand. There was a short' period -when moonshine of better "quality" had wholesale for 85 cents a gallon. The retail price in Atlanta used Baseball Standings SOUTHERN LEAGUED ' " W. L.
