EVERYBODY IN SOME WAY USES COTTON EVERY DAY, No other fitxr fills so many needs of .so many people. From the time you dry your face in the morning with a cotton towel until you crawl between fresh cotton sheets at night you use cotton practically everywhere you go and in everything you do. You raise the cotton sTiade with a cotton c6rd, rise to put on cotton clothes, tie the cotton laces in shoes lined and stitched with cotton, and c.u breakfast from a cotton covered table. You ride to work on a cotton upholstered scat, carried by cotton corded tires. As you go about your daily work, cotton is with you at every turn. Even the phone calls you make go throvigh cotton insulated wires. From where you're sitting now, you can reach out and touch cotton. No other fiber is so versatile, so dependable, so easy and safe to use. The Farmers Bank & Trust Co. AMERICANS USE FOUR TIMES AS MUCH COT TON AS All OTHER FIBERS COMUNED.
