Tallulah Leave Tallulah TRI-STATE Gilfoil To Wrap Entire Output In Cotton Bagging Gilfoil of Omega has reported to County Agent Hester that he has made arrangements to wrap all cotton ginned by his firm in cotton bagging- instead of jute The recent awarding of a government contract to the Lane Mills of New Orleans for 6000000 yards of the cotton bagging recalls that 50 years ago Sigmund Oden-heimer now president of the mills made an effort to get cotton products substituted for jute At that time he was treasurer of the firm The government is placing a limit on the amount of bagging sold to individual companies in order that it might be used only foi covering cotton The mill contract is to supply cotton bagging at 45 cents a pattern one of which covers a bale The AAA pays the mills a subsidy of 28 cents a pattern to compensate the manufacturing and distribution costs making an outlay of 68 cents Jute bagging can be secured for as low as 70 cents which leaves a seven cent advantage for cotton bagging Norris Williamson president of the American Cotton Cooperative Association in a letter to Mr Odenheimer stated is most interesting to recall that many years ago you spent so much of your time and I am sure a lot of money tiring to increase the use of cotton so as to find more outlets for it right here at Civil Service Asks For Applications The civil service commission

busy this week receiving applications for the cotton price adjustment payment This payment was provided for by an act of congress in which approximately $127000000 will be distributed to cotton producers providing they have cooperated in the 1988 Agricultural Adjustment Program This payment is being made on 60 per cent of a 1937 base production The rate of payment will be the amount by which tne average price of 7-8-inch middling cotton on the ten designated pot markets was below 12 cents on the day the grower sold his cotton but not in excess of three cents per pound in any case This will mean that most producers wil' receive approximately three cents per pound on 60 per cent' of their 1937 base production the county agent predicted NO CASES BROUGHT BEFORE DEBT BODY The Madison
