DEC. 1 UPON Quotas Are Designed To Forestall Large Cotton Surplus Agents Explain Marketing quotas for cotton are a feature of the AAA farm program designed to forestall further increases in the already large suppl> o£ cotton and to protect each producer's fair share of the domestic and foreign demand for Americai cotton, J. J. , Pickren and E. H Burns, county agents, said in dis cussing the cotton marketing quoU referendum to be held Saturdaj Dec.,7. On that date, cotton farm ers of the nation will decid whether marketing quotas for cot ton will be in effect next year. This year will be the fourth time that cotton farmers have voted on quotas for cotton. Mr. Pickren said. ustrhent payments. Producers who nowingly overplant, will receive no ayments of any kind. Without growing another stalk >f cotton, the world supply of American cotton, approximately 25 nillion bales, is sufficient for do- iestie consumption and exports for i he next two years, 11. E. Thompson,' issistant Extension director, Urii-. ersity of Arkansas College of Agri- ulture, said in a special message o Mississippi County farmers re- ;arding the cotton situation and 'he forthcoming referendum. "This large supply of American cotton is largely the result of the unrestricted production in 1937. The carry-over of American cotton increased from seven million bales, August i, 193G, to nearly 14 million bales, August 1, 1928.

Approximately one-third of all retu'l sale.s for the past several years have been made on either an open account or installment basis, and in some selected lines the figure now runs as 'high as 90 per cent. With this increase in open accounts and installment buying comes the need for a closer examination of the, advantages and disadvantages of employing consumer credit. First of all, consumer credit must be used for legitimate purposes only, in proper proportion, and the avout should be examined thor- .

Mr. Thompson said. -While we consumed more cotton last year than usual and our exports amounted to 6.2 million bales, foreign takings of our cotton during this new cotton year are expected to be about two million bales, or about one-third as large. '"SaUirday. December 7. cotton farmers throughout the Cotton Beit will vote on whether to continue expended in rural rehabilitation tenant purchase loans, ^.supervisor ls r eal said.

They were approved for the three C0t i 0 u marketing quoas again in previous seasons. The. marketing .quota for a farm is the amount of cotton which may be sold without penalty. For a farm planting within its acreage ' allotment, the quota is the amount of cotton it produces plus any cotton produced in a previous year which would not have been subject to' penalty if >t had been marketed in the year in which it was produced. The farmer who stays within his allotment can sell all the 11941—actually the control features of the AAA program. If growers should discontinue marketing quotas, we have no accurate means of estimating the expansion that would result, other than pointing to what happened in 1931 when no control was in effect. "I should like to join County Agents Burns and Pickren. Mississippi County AAA committeemen and farm leaders in this county in urging all persons eligible to ilies who are honestly trying to conventional type, which has make a go. of their farming, but who are unable to finance themselves, or secure credit from any other source, with the ^ long time payment plau ottered by the FSA. These families need only u chance to prove that they can make a go of it. Supervisor Neal further pointed out, and it is the primary aim of the • FSA'" to help low-income farmers help themselves. Anderson, home management chairman for the County Council of Home Demonstration Clubs, feels that it would save the family disposition and prevent much contusion and disorder in the household if things could be located easily when needed. The expense of an extra shelf or a cupboard rearrangement would be a small item compared with the resulting added convenience. Good storage plans mean that articles used most frequently are compactly arranged near the place where they are used. Labels are always useful in maintaining ordei kitchen orderly. Small children 11 learn to hang their play clothes > if low h*oks are provided. They an even be taught to put play- lings away if given convenient orage places to compete with the enter of the living room floor or :e outside steps.

This gives them earlier possession of the pieces, and in cotton he produces. However, if any,penalty cotton from a previous year" is marketed in excess of his quota, the penalty cotton will be subject to the penalty. If quotas are in effect, producers who plant within or unknowingly overplant their cotton allotment- will be eligible for any cotton loan offered and producers who knowingly overplant will not be eligible for loans except on 1941 cotton in excess of their marketing quotas and then at only 60 per cent of vote. It is extremely important that every producer vote, in order that our national congress will know that farmers are interested in their farm program," he concluded. The Department of Agriculture says it is likely that the United States mill consumption of cotton will set a new high record during the current season. The total is expected to materially exceed eight million bales. This can be attributed to three factors the upper part, of the box. it contains u drawer or covered pan, called a humidifier, for storing perishable vegetables such as lettuce and celery.

Town Has 5 Mattie Whites >N. C. move to another farm, have renewed their leases and instead of moving, are making plans to make improvements to their rented acres, said David C. Neal, supervisor of the Farm Security Administration. "During the last two years, landowners and tenants alike have learned of the large cost of moving each year." he said. "Farm families working with the Farm Security Administration have demonstrated the large benefits that long tenure bring, not only to the tenants but the landlord as well." "As a result of these longer leases, under the FSA, other land owners have begun using the flexible farm lease, which gives V tenant a wider opportunity to diversify his crops and improve the tains a moist cold storage space and lettuce and such foods can be stored on the grills without being covered. Since the air which 1 circulates throughout the entire storage space, however, is moist, foods which must be kept dry, have to be covered. This type of refrigerator is very useful on the farm and will be much used in the next few years, Mrs. Fenton says. Credit Purchases Consumer credit can be a potent factor for good, but if mishandled it can wreck the entire financial structure of the family, warn Mrs. Ida A. Fenton, Household Management Specialist. t - . . Today, it is a rare family that operates completely on a cash basis. Credit for emergencies, for car time or energy saver for the homemaker. An important phase to investigate is the money charged for the credit privilege. Sometimes interest or other costs incidental to the transaction are h'idden in the price of the merchandise. Sometimes, pan- ticularly in installment credit and cash credit obtained from lending sources, the interest is stated but not always in clear, understandable terms. Every user of credit should make it a point to learn and understand the rates quoted, Mrs. Fenton advises. Since the carrying charge is the price the customer is paying for the use of 'borrowed capital, he should -compute the terms in per cent and then decide whether he wishes to pay the price. All transactions are not comparable, however, and weight should be given to the security and the amount involved. Very small loans are costly to carry on the books of the lender. If the interest or carrying charge is not too high a price to pay for the loan or earlier possession of the goods, and if the immediate attainment of the goods more than compensates for the possible worry and involvement, then the use of BUDGET TOES at low as CALL FOR BEST Ft OUR FORFINEST RESULTS consumer credit: is justified. are ~ ; five 'Apersons ; named White in this town of 2,000.

Neal, rural supervisor, j And Frances M. Wall, home management supervisor said today. -Thanksgiving dinners this year were symbolic of the progress that our families are making toward ..icir renabilitation," they said. "For many of the families, it meant that this year, for the f'rst in many years, they were able 10 prepare their meals from their ,,wii pantries instead of paper sacks and tin cans." rcA supervisors pointed out that ~il t'SA families in this county could have served home-grown neats as the main item on their Turkey Day dinner. Many of the amilies served home grown beef and pork. All were able to have caked chicken, while some of the amilies may have had the traditional turkey as the center of Detraction. In all of the homes, the pantries are now stocked with a variety of home grown vegetables and '. fruits, which have quality as well quantity. The smoKe houses also nold many varieties of dried fruits .ind vegetables. Like their ancestors, these rural farm families who are making rapid progress in their new farm j programs, which call for diversi- > ucation of crops and the live-at- j home program, gave thanks for the > opportunities they have had and J the progress they have made during i the year.
