Despite shoftagcs of labor, equipment, fertilizer, and insecticides, cotton growers produced the fiber • and seed needed to clothe, feed, and supply with ammunition the fighting men of America. Today cotton faces a future filled with problems —problems which will determine whether or not the production and processing of the nation's Number One cash crop are to remain our greatest agricultural industry. Competing fibers arc challenging many of cotton's markets. Exports have declined from half of the crop to a sixth of the crop. A year's production is stacked in warehouses. Your government and your/awn cotton organizations are taking e\;ery possible action to cope with cotton's broad economic problems. But there arc important cotton problems which only the fanner himself can solve. They involve farming methods, care of soil, insect and disease control, grade and staple improvement, and marketing of the crop. To assist with these problems, the Department of Agriculture, the State Extension Services, the National Cotton Council and other organizations arc presenting a Seven-Step Program designed to assure more profitable cotton farming. Your County Agent has full particulars as to how you can utilize the Seven-Step Program most advantageously and most economically on your own farm. Talk it over with him. Join with your neighbors in taking the seven steps toward belter cotton farming. v A NATURAL All) FOR p> I ._• Rhumatism Kidney, Bladder i )is <>"i«s This Natural Mineral Water from Hot Springs, Arkansas, Helps to— I.
