Dales McCombs said thai if (he total approaches bales as expected, it would also mean a new high for a pcr-acre yield. The county's farmers have ahoul acres devoted to cotton. Ordinarily the county averages is about one-half bale per acre. "We don't have any real rec- ord for this sort of mc- Combs said, "but I do know that the general picture is bet- ter this year than I've ever seen it here before, and I've been here 13 years."
