To Insure Your Cotton CaU 797. Caudill's Agency GENERAL INSURANCE 106 North Broadway ATTENTION FARM During the past few days there has been considerable wet, heavy, green cotton coming in to the gins of this section and as all gins have adopted the National Ginners Code under the N. R. A. act they must ask that cotton picking be delayed until it is in proper picking condition. It is a violation of the N. R. A. code for any gin to run thru this wet, green cotton and such a violation by any ginner can be penalized thru the loss of his permit to operate. Cooperate with the U. S. Government by delaying your picking until the cotton is in proper condition and by so doing you will enrich yourselves to the extent of getting a better turn-out and sample, resulting in more money for you. Most of the cotton ginned so far has been very hard to sell, most buyers refusing to even make a bid on it. Lee-Coppedge Gin Co. Jake Ungar Gin Co. Farmers Gin Mississippi County Gin Mahan Gin Co.
