Quality Cotton: Last Wednes-'
! day and Thursday nights I
I scheduled quality cotton meet-!
I ings at the Court House and at
the Chowan Community Build-,
ing respectively. At each of
these meetings there were four]
cotton growers present If this;
is an indication of Chowan cot-]
ton. growers’ interest in harvest-'
ing and selling quality cotton'
to market this year for highest
returns. I am sadly disappointed.
Chowan County, Perquimans
County and Gates County are
about the only counties in North
. Carolina in which a very large
portion of the cotton grown is
j sold in the seed. Much of the
I cotton grown in Chowan County
; is picked trashy, oftentimes with
too much 'moisture and is pack
, ed down in bags so that it can
| not dry out and may possibly
I go into a heat, damaging the fi- 1
■ bers and seed, before it is gin
ned. No matter how good the]
gin equipment is. and how care-J
fully the ginner operates his
equipment, he cannot gin quali-j
|ty cotton out of damp and ]
trashy cotton that is brought to]
i his gin. Many of you growers |
take the attitude that it doesn’t
i make any difference, you are I
selling your cotton in the seed|
so the more moisture and trash
that you can put in the more |
weight you will get paid for. |
This is true if the cotton gin-!
ner or buyer does not make any
price difference between clean,
dry picked cotton and damp
trashy cotton, but that is not
the end. The ginner or buyer]
cannot afford to consistently
pay more for cotton than he cani
get out of it and stay in busi-j
ness. Therefore, if he is go-1
ing to operate on a one-piece
basis it is necessary for him to
'penalize the grower who picks
and delivers clean dry cotton in
I order to break even on his op
eration with damp and trashy
i Remember this, the cotton
1 sent to market from Chowan
County is representative of Cho
' wan County cotton. If Chowan
I County markets quality cotton
then it has a reputation of qual
ity cotton but if it markets poor
quality cotton then the reputa
tion is accordingly established
and we are penalized in the
market place. I want to urge
you to check your pickers care
fully each day you are picking
cotton and see that they pick it
as free of trash as possible.
Don’t pack it down in bags, but
empty it out on open sheets at
the end of the row and let it
get the benefit of the sun. If
your pickers don't waste time
packing cotton in the bag they
will pick far more cotton during
the day than the pounds that
dry out in the sun during the
TK2 CnOWAS HSfiALS, £D£KTON, NORTH CAROLINA. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 8, IM6.
, day. This will result in mare
’ money for your pickers and con
.jsiderably more money for the
I Now, let’s look at the possi
j ble marketing of cotton and
■ prices involved this season. The
CCC or government purchase
price of middling 1-1/32 staple
is $34.09 per hundred pounds on
Choice “A” allotment cotton.
The government loan price on
Choice “B” allotment cotton is
$5.70 a hundred pounds less.
There will be both Choice "A”
and Choice “B” cotton sold in
the seed to the ginner or buyer.
These buyers may set their seed
( price as low as the Choice “B”
. price on seed cotton, in any
I event it will not likely be up
! near the Choice “A” price.
, Therefore.. if you have Choice
j "A"’ allotment and sell your cot-'
I ton in the seed you will be sell
j ing it at a lower price than you
I could get for it to have it gin
ned. What you get for your
| seed should at least pay for the
I ginning and maybe some over.
If you want to get the most out
lof your cotton this year I don't
I see how you can afford to sell
] Choice “A" cotton in the seed.
Again, if you want to get the
most out of your cotton this
year and are going to have it
ginned. I don't see how you can
j afford not to pick your cotton
when it is dry and, to have it
j picked as clean as possible so
I that you will get the best quali
'ty and in turn the best price.
Cotton is still one of our good
cash crops. I have heard a few
growers say that they didn’t
care whether they kept their
cotton allotment. 1 would like
to ask this question: If you
don’t plant cotton, what can youl
plant that will make you more]
money? If there is a crop that
you can grow which will con
sistently make you more money
then you are foolish to continue
to grow more cotton. You must
think of this in terms of not
just one or two years but on a
long range basis of many years.
We can grow cotton as profit
ably in Chowan County as it
can be grown anywhere. I be
lieve. So far. most of our
growers and maybe all of them
have not been willing to follow
the practices necessary to do
the best job of producing, har
vesting and marketing the high
est yields and best quality. Our
cotton is in competition with
areas where growers are em
ploying these practices and do-l
ing a good job. We need to'
give this our serious considers-'
tion and if cotton is determined
to be one of our good cash crops,]
let's keep it and let’s make the
most out of it.
There are some things that
you can do toward harvesting
quality cotton. Either chemical
jly defoliate your plants when
two-thirds of the bolls are
t grown and cracking or else go
i over your fields and cut the
j tops off your plants so that the
! sunshine can be turned in to
open your cotton crop and pre
‘ vent' boll ’ rot. ’Qrily pick c6t
ton when it is dry. Let it dry
before you take it to the gin.
Pick your cotton just as clean
as possible. Have your cotton
ginned, asking the ginner to
draw a sample and have it grad
ed and classed for you under
the free grading and classing
program. When you receive
your grade and class card then
you are in a position to market
your cotton intelligently.

‘Tor the love of money is the
. root of all evil: which while
, some coveted after, they have
l erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many
sorrows” (I Timothy 6:10).
1 have always been fascinated
by the fascination money has
for those who see it not a
means, but an end in itself.
Perhaps society is partly to
blame for we have exalted
money to the position of su
preme high status symbol. No
matter how boorish or uncouth
or crude a man may be, if he
commands a bit of coin he is
held up to our young people as
one on whom they may pattern
But the love of money, like
the love of power, corrupts. To
day, as in Jesus’ day, men, and
churches. eagerly sell their
souls and betray their Saviour
for a few dirty pieces of silver.)
Unfair, dishonest business prac-|
tices, traffic in the things of
sin are defended violently on
the ground that they are pro
titable. Many men, I fear,
would not defend the honor of
their homes, or their Christian
faith, nearly as quickly as they t
defend the shady, questionable!
deals which enlarge their bank
accounts. When there is a con-j
tlict between business and.
church it is church which suf
fers. When there is a conflict
between God and gold it is God
who is placed in the back seat,
if He is invited along for the
ride at all.
Churches must face this)
, temptation. As in Peter’s time
I (Acts 8:9-24) there are those
| who would buy their way into
church prominence and position
with a check-book, and too of
ten we have not had the cour
age and faith to say, with Pe
ter, "Thy money perish with
thee.” The result is the same
as in the old joke about the
rich man who was asked if he
belonged to a certain church.
“Certainly not,” he answered,
“that church belongs to me.”
And they act like it, too!
Our Lord Jesus had more tol
say about money than anything
else, even our eternal salva
tion. He taught that a man’s
attitude toward money is the
key to his entire character. If
h e looks upon his wealth as a]
trust from' God and seeks to j
J use it in God’s service, all well
( and good. But if he covets
■money as an end in itself, andj
! uses it as a tool to bribe his]
j way to power and position'
where he can undermine the]
Lord's work, he deserves the)
condemnation of Jesus spoken)
