The cotton producer then will receive his lint tags which will be attached to each bale of cotton produced this season and become eligible for sale under the lint certification program. The tags should he addressed to?Uie New Mexico Crop Improvement Assn. at State College.

Tug Already Paid For__' ' Through a cooper.'Ltiveterange- ment which was worked out with all producers of 1017 scud eligible to lint certification, the price of the lint certification tag this year urns added to the seed cost and collected from the purchaser at the time he bought his seed, Stoval explains. "All a producer has to do to secure the lint certification tags this year is to sign the white tag which accompanied the blue tag on each sack of feed, give his address and send it in," Stoval says. That the tag will mean dollars to the grower seems to be proven conclusively, as the demand for lem. The remit of this meeting was the organisation of a Bait Cedar Interagency Council which appointed a disk force to gather needed data on t h e . subject. This task force nan completed Its initial work which is reported in i volume lasucd February 1 of this year.

H Is hoped by the association that within a year or 'two there will be a 100 percent tagging of this cottoii in order that it can enter the market in large quantity. Spinners Want Information It was brought out a number of times at tho Splnne~-Breeder Conference in El Paso last September that the spinners wanted identified lint. There were five things brought out at thia conference which were of major importance to the spinner: year of growth; point of origin; grade; staple length, and variety, Stoval explains that the gin tag, or Smith-Doxey tag, carries the information asked for by the spinners on the first four points, hut does not carry the variety certification which, in the cnac of the premium 1517 cotton grown here, becomes .of major importance to the spinner and is reflected In the market price obtained for the cotton. In the past three years considerable 1517 cottoii has carried this variety certification tag. Stoval reports that it has caused a great amount of favorable comment and has brought to the attention of millers and spinners the outstanding spinning character of this variety. pblqres Bombach Wins 4-H Honor Uolori-s- Bombach, Las Cruces 4-H dull member, has been select- ed'to attend Camp Minlwanca, the American .Youth' Foundation leadership' training catn'p of Shelby, Mich., this summer, Miss Travis Hughs, associate 4-H club leader, said today.
