FRIDAY, NOVEMBRK 26, 1937 Mechanical Cotton Picker Is ' Being Exhibited Near Osceo'lai BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS All Soldiers Don't Comc'Marching Home PAGE THBEi ' < ' OECEOLA, Ark., Nov. 26.—The' first' mechanical type cotton picko ever .shown in this section is being operatEd this week on the Roy Dillnrd farm, two miles northwest of Osceola. mid is ntlract- in? considerable interest nmonfi the fanners of this vicinity. The machine, called the St. Louis Ccllonptcker. and manufactured by . Ihe St. Louis Cotton Picker Com' pany. a subsidiarj' of the si. Louis Cur Company. Is drawn by one mule and operated by two men. Supervising Hie demonstration this week Is L. C. Stuken- l;org of Mtmphls, inventor of the machine, unil W. C. VYTiuissm:m or St. Louis, executive of the LH. 1 Louis firm, and I!. V. Utlerback' of Memplik. reprejeiitatii'e for the Mississippi Valley territory. Mr. Stukcnborg holds ovfr one liun- drrd patents other than this machine, a large number of which are in widespread and geneiai use. Tiie muclilne is |)ai;nc«l m: foreign countries as well as in the' United Slates. Outstanding in lt.s .vimpliciti' as \vell as the improved condition in which it deposits the lint cotton in the pick sacks, in? opera-' tion of the St. Louis Co:tcn;iicker is simple. After very brief ir.- Mructions, it, was successfully op-' crated Wednesday by two negro !arm hands, who had never USEC! the machine before. The lightweight picking head is fitted with a comfortable leather hand siip- ))3rl. The picker's linixl simi>!y <ii- v;cts tile spring-suspended and Valanccd head to tbe b->ll and the rotating picking brushes gently pull all of the cotton from the Loll. A guard immediately in front of the brushes prevents hulls from cnta-ing the picking head. The rotating blades at the rear of 'the brushes wipe the cotton ifroin the brushes and whisk it into Ihe P.ex- ible lubes. By suction the cotton is then carrier) to the suction fau and is blown through an efficient cleaner into the sack. The machine is equipped with two sacks, each having a capacity of approximately 150 pounds of seed cotton. ; Easily Handled i The supporting arrangement for the picking head is flexible io that it is easy to pick either clo-;e lo the side of the machine, ahead of it. behind it, or far out at fhe limit of the arm reach. Operating the picker doe-3 not tire the workers as hand picking does. Their hands do not get torn, and gloves may be worn in cold weather. Wherever one can plow, this picker can 'be used. It picks .in wet weathei' or. dry arid any type of cotton, 'its sponsors claim. In rush season it can' be operated easily after dark. It docs not injure the cotton plant and liar- vests the middle and top crop as successfully as the bottom. It is equipped with cranks [or easy hand moving in case it Ls not desired to. use a mule or a small tractor for handling. Picks from. 3 to 10 lows at a time. ! .An outstanding feature of the St. Louis Cottonpicker is its cleaning device. This cleaner includes a copper covered wire separator which eliminates dirt and moisture from tiie cotton, placing it in better condition for gin-- ning and preventing seeds irom' sprouting or healing. In addition. > considerable fertile top soil is separated and deposited on the fiel.1 ; Aided by revolving metal fingers? the cleaned cotton passes through; the cleaning device into the rack. Electrically Operated A direct current generator, di-' i-ectly connected to a gasoline en- : gine, furnishes the electricity. The: engine uses about one gallon of gasoline every twelve hours. The-' po\v£r plant and all auxiliary op-> crating equipment is composed of standard products. The engine is' a one-horse power unit while the electric equipment is of standard make. The brushes and wipers in the picking head are operated by a worm and spiral gears. The gears, fitted in suitable bearing: and running In a bath of lubricant, arc operated by a flexible shaft which is driven by a snu'.ll electric motor. Well Enginecrcil-SUlrtlily Huilt ' The entire frame is rigidly con-! structcd of properly engineered i steel pressings and shapes. The! unit is of convenient size, rolling' between the rows on three steel! wheels; the two 40" diameter forward "winels -straddle two rows while the small swivel at the rear allows steering the machine through the field. II requires practically ,no mechanical attention beyond the engine's regular sup- lily of gasoline and oil. Low Cost . .The machine weighs only BOO pounds. Throughout n .season, two men op:intlng this will pick L>S much cctton as six average hand I-!e-:cr?, jMmifactiuTrs insist The ].:ckcr will Ue here the balance' of this wttit In operation at tl>: Roy Lillai'd farm for farmers to inspect and cbsen'o its work.
