; FA4I FOUKHEIN BLTTHIYILLE (ARK.)' COURIER MEWS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, REVIEW«" FORECAST . No £e//e/ Seen For Cottonseed i . Price Dec/me Nothing in the present picture promises relief for cotton producers and ginners from the cut in price supports for cottonseed, Jim Dick KilJion, president of the Missouri Cotton Producers Association, said here today. "The Department of Agriculture has disregarded the urgent advice of producer organizations, presented both though resolutions and through personal representatives, and has persisted in a course which is expected to cost Missouri cotton producers alone M million during the current harvest," KiUion said. $8 Drop The TJSDA purcnase price to farmers this year is 60 per cent of parity, or S42 per ton, for basis grade (100) seed. This a drop of $8 per ton from 1954 crop support levels and 52Q.OO per ton under the 1952 crop. While the TJSDA has been cutting prices to fanners, products made from cottonseed (salad oil, shortening, spreads, etc.) have actually increased in price to consumer*. "The Industry has long realized that support prices on cottonseed constitute a ceiling prices on cottonseed be maintained at a min- ium of 75 per cent of parity, or else be abandoned altogether," the MC PA .offical stated. "Now we find ourselves in a situation where the producer realizes less for his seed than the usual cost per bale of ginning; while the gin- ner handles the resale of the seed without profit... and often at a loss. Producers Up in Arms Producers and ginners are up in arm* over what they consider an abu*e of pricing authority. By resolution, on March 17, Missouri Cotton Producers Association urged pricing authorities to be ei- ther maintain cottonseed support prices at 75 per cent of parity, or else abandon cottonseed price supports altogether. At the prevailing support price ginners contend that cottonseed will not pay the ginning cost. Ginnings so far have brough the farmer a realization of about $40 per ton, in most cases a few cents over or under actual ginning costs. The ginner, after .pacifying unhappy customer faces the grim fact that he will be lucky to get his money back. (Ginners heretofore have realized a small profit from the sale of seed taken in exchange for ginning.) Nothing to Be Done "So far as we know, nothing now can be done to remedy the situation during the 1955 crop season," Killion said Monday. "We still believe that cottonseed, relieved of the 'ceiling effect 1 of the 60 per cent of parity price, might find a market at a higher figure, possibly winning back the demand which it has yielded to soybeans as a source of vegetable oils." "It Is hard to believe, however, that the Department of Agriculture will be inclined to abandon the £0 per cent of parity support price for cottonseed merely because it has proven to be the boomerang to the producer and ginner which we have consistently warned that it would be. Needless to say, producer organizations will not let the present runinous effect of unrealistic application of price supports pass unnoticed. Dissatisfaction is as widespread as the cottonbelt itself. It's economical to keep a food freezer full. A freezer uses just as much electricity when only partially filled as when It's full.

Good yields are report ed from the harvest of early fields of GRAIN SORGHUM but late plantings peed rain. Harvest of HAY and SILAGE continues. Dry weather has further reduced the SOYBEAN crop. Insects are also causing some trouble. Overall prospects continue better than last year but fields not irrigated need rain badly. Some combining is reported in Lafayette County. Dry weather is retarding the seeding of FALL GRAINS. Some acreage of oats was "dusted" in during the week but in many instances the ground is too dry and hard for proper seed-bed preparation. The delay is not serious but some early fields for grazing would be helpful. A few fields are reported up to a stand but a general rain is needed for good germination and growth. The harvest of TOMATOES for canning in northwestern counties is near completion. The crop is being cut short by dry weather. Limited harvest of SWEET POTATOES is underway in central and southern counties. 8TRAW- BERRIES in White County continue to suffer loss of stand from disease, and dry weather has slowed development oC bede. A similar situation is also reported in Washington County. PECAN prospects are .reported good. PASTURES are being depleted rapidly due to high temperatures and dry weather. However, LIVESTOCK continue in good condition. Marketing is heavier. The demand for COTTON PICKERS is increasing. There is some movement of labor underway to important cotton counties to assist in the harvest. Autos Even Things Up ABILENE, Tex.
