Ihe world uses only about 13,500,000 bales of American cotton annually. The carry-over now is between 8,000,000 and 9,000,000 bales. It's easy to tigure'where the American cotton grower will be this year if we have another big- cotton crop, and that will be Busted Worse Than Ever Before We can't expect anything except low cotton this fall if we raise a big crop this year. Cotton is going down steadily and many well informed men predict eight cent cotton for Blytheville in the fall of 1931 What's the Solution to the Problem? Here It Is In a Few Words Farm for a Living First! Grow All Your Eeed! Plant Soy Beans In every acre of Corn—the seed cost is only nboul four bits an acre. And your corn yield will be increased. Plant Soy Beans for Sale! The Blytheville Cotton Oil Mill will buy every bean offered them this fall. Ft'.s one crop not overproduced in America today. Plant Soy Beans for Hay! Tln-e« to five tons of the best hay grown can bei produced on one acre. Soy beans grow on any kind of soil if properly imioculated. Seed cost is extremely low. in raising soybean hay. Plant Soy Beans for Land's Sake Tests have proven that no other crop that grows will build up land like Soybeans. Increased productions running as high as 40 per cent have been made on lands on which soy beans had been grown the previous year. Soybeans improve your lands and make you a profit at the same time. Every year Missi.s.sippi county farmers spend morn than 2,000,000 hard dollars. for feed they could produce themselves. Nearly S300 per farm' is our annual feed bill. It takes' 50,000 bales of cotton (1-2 our 1D30 crop) at 550 a bale'to pay for this feed. We can riitour cotton acreage one-fourth, use this land to make two million dollars worth of feed, make just as much—or more—cotton as we can gather and every farmer in this county IIP. SSOO better off at the end of the year. Why'con- tinue fo slave growing cotton just to buy feed that goes down the mules' throats. Why not think about trying to make .-omething for yourself? Plant Less Cotton—More Feed! Plant all the Corn. Soy Reans, Alfalfa that it will take to run your farm twelve months in the year. If you have a surplus so mufh tlie brtter—you can sell it to your short-sighted friend who puts all his land in cotton to sell at eight cents a pound maybf. Remember, there's D.000,000 hales on hand now. You Can't Break a Farmer Who Grows Food and Feed Grow Something to Eat What difference would it make if cotton went to five cents a pound if we raised our food crops and saved them; if we raised our meat; milked our cows; hnd all the chickens and eggs we needed; and raised the feed for our livestock? We wouldn't have so much money of, but it's a lead pipe cinch we wouldn't go hungry and have to be fed by charity. Mississippi county spends over two million and a half dollars a year for poultry and dairy nnd hog products that could be raised right here at home if we would only raise them. Cut that cotton acreage and grow something to cat.
