XLV—NO. 144 Blytheville Daily News Blytheville Courier Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9. 1919 TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENT'S Growers Seek Improvement in Cottonseed Loan Problems Discussed In Conferences in Memphis, Washington teps are under way at both the ^flral and Washington levels to improve the government's price support program inaugurated this year for cottonseed, it was disclosed today. In Memphis, agricultural officials from 20 states were In session to discuss provisions of the new cottonseed loan program under which the farmer is entitled to borrow 49.50 per ton through the Commercial Credit Corporation provided the seed does not have a moisture content of more than ll per cent. The Memphis meeting opened yesterday with several growers from Arkansas in attendance and speakers included W B. Crawley, assistant administrator for the Produc tion and Marketing Administration in Washington, who told the group that the f irmers have not been receiving a fair price for their seed. Fullbright Asks Action At the Washington level, J. W. Fullbright of Fayetteville, Arkansas’ junior senator, sent a leter to Secretary of Agriculture Charles Bran-nan urging improvement in the loan program as it relates to cottonseed. Senator Fuibright said that he has received many reports from Arkansas that growers are selling their cottonseed at prices far below the support price because the Arkansas seed almost invariably ontains moisture in excess of the maximum allowed to make the seed eligible for loans through the federal agency.

Mr. Crawley in addressing the farm leaders meeting in Memphis mud any puce support program is certain to have its problems but he expressed the belief that $ime will take care of both the coiture mid the storage difficulties which arebeing encountered this year. “Loans through government agencies,” he said, “are possible to provide storage facilities on the farms and the farmers can obtain ker date. dto 85 per cent of the amount weeded.” Methods in handling grain change and the methods pertaining to cottonseed is in the process of changing at this time, he explained. Deploring the price spread between the amout the farmer gets for his cottonseed and the revenue derived from the processed seed, Mr. Crawley said that the spread has been found to be as high as $33 per ton. "This," he said, “amounts to more than 60 per cent of the price received by the farmers. Re ports Progress " We have heara me many arguments that the loan method of price support for cotton seed at farm level ‘disrupted the normal pattern of cotton seed handling.’ i However, under the ‘traditional method’ we have seen seed sell as as $6 a ton. Grain used to go ▼ii t o elevators at harvest time. Traditional grain marketing methods were changed when farmers started storing on the farm. “Many other commodities are marketed in different ways than they were in the past. It Is a sign of progress. “We sincerely believe that farmers throughout the South will greatly benefit from changing some of their traditional marketing methods and thereby place themselves j in a position to act more independently in disposing of their products. 1 We do not believe that a change from selling cotton seed at the ; buyer's price to carrying home and j holding for a higher farmer’s price will be a change for the worse. “This Is no fly-by-night program j Some form of price support for cotton seed may be here to stay.

Yugoslavia may draw up to $12,-000 000 at once for the purchase of American materials and equipment to rehabilitate her mining industry. The other $8,000,000 credit may be drawn upon as the bank and the Yugoslav government agree as to the need of specific goods and services.

Seeks Property Protection No unusual occurrences were reported today at Union Station, but police were instructed to pay particular attention to Missouri Pacific property. Officials at the bus terminal here said at IO a.m. that they had not yet noticed any increase in passengers Railroad officials said they doubted that any perishables were caught in the tieup, as a freight embargo was imposed last Tuesday to allow' time for rolling freight to reach its destination. A strike will cripple hundreds of towns and thousands of industries. Last minute efforts to stop the strike were made in Washington, but there was no indication it could j be averted. President Truman said yesterday he was doing everything he could, but added that the government had exhausted nearly all Its authority in such cases. An embargo on passenger, mail and baggage service became effective early today. Some long-distance trains, however, were not expected to complete their runs until after the strike deadline In addition to the 5000 opeating employes, a spokesman for the road estimated that 80 or 90 per cent Anti-McMath Forces Seek Own Candidate CONWAY, Ark.
