<'aiiii>algnComlng To a Close ? Only a
Few More i)nys T,eft In Wlilcli To
.loin ? Campaign CI ? .es Saturday,
After the most successful campaign
ever undertaken among the farmers
forthelr organization the sign-up cam
paign of the Cotton and Tobacco Qrow
srs Associations of North Carolina
comes to a close at sunset on Satur
day, October 15th.
These two associations nave done
what has been said to fee impossible,
that is they have organised over fifty
per cent of the cotton, and tobacco far
mers into a business-like selling or
ganization which will make them the
most powerful selling agdhcies of the
two products In the world. " It ? tag
been the dream of the Agricultural
leaders In the South for .years of or
ganizing the cotton apd toDaoco farm
ers so that they might hare control of
the sale of their crops s$d much has
1 een the speculation of th? power fhey
might wield and of the prosperity that
v ould come to the South as the result
cf aucb organisation. ,
The success of these arfcanlsatlons
has been unpara Helled and tbev stand
today the strongest co-operative enter
prises in the world and alt the old to
bacco companlee and cotton exchan
ges combined do not equal them in
the control of the two crops.
A large portion of the two crops
grown in Franklin county have already
been signed up In the associations and
It Is hoped that by the time the cam
paign ends on the ISth that fully sev
enty-five per cent of the farmers will
have signed up In them . This means
for Franklin county and for Che South
years of prosperity and an end to the
crop mortgage system which has made
slaves of tbe southern tarnfkrs for the
V past fifty years. . ?
