' willi -the prospect - thai cotton acreage ,restricted for a number of years lo come. if not permanently, cotton growers of this vicinity are seeking other cash crops, suitable to local soil and climatic conditions and for which a satisfactory market exists. Production of beans and spinach for the Blytheville Canning company has solved the problem for a number, but whatever expansion there may te in acreage- of such crops is certain to be small compared with the acreage diverted from cotton. There has been a large increase In feed crops but profitable use ot land for lids purpose is virtually limited by local demand. doy beans have produced highly satisfactory yields in this county, but lack of proper harvesting and marketing facilities has limited Ihe profits from them. They have been valuable as soil builders and Rr feed but have counted for little as a c«sli crop. Faced with the necessity of finding a good cash crop In addition to cotton, however, a number of fanners are considering (he advisability of putting iheir own money into n co-operative plant for crushing soy beans. Such R plant, they believe, would eliminate the marketing difficulty so far as this crop Is concerned, and would Justify the additional in-1 vestment necessary for equipment in,. lo harvest the beans. i" ;j' 11 is understood that n co-op- j Mar !ralive organization formed for, May July Oct. llarvy Joe II.
