Without Fixed Price
Farmer Says Buyer* Should Lay Off
Buying Until Price Is
To the Editor of The Star:
T understand that the guano com
panies are insisting upon, loading up
die dealer with guano and in turn
the dealers are to dump their guano
upon the lavmers without any fix
ed price; the price to be fixed later.
I would advise all to play hands
off until the price is fixed. If they
can dump their guano upon us in
this way. they can then fix the price
10 suit themselves—and if the price
is not considerable lower than last
year’s price, I think we. had better
go on a strike and let them keep
We might as well go fishing as to
buy high priced guano to make 8
cent cotton. We would at least save
a lot of hard work by the fishing
program. A lot of us would have had
more clear money at the end of last
year if we had fished and left off
the cotton crop.
' The guano meu have their prices
based upon 20 cent cotton and unless
they come off considerably I thillk
we had better let them keep it un
til the price of cotton again readies
18 or 20 cents.
