Farm Bureau Official
Says Market Will Be
R. 'Flake Shaw, Executive Vice
President of the North Carolina Farm
Bureau, encourages U cotton pro
ducers m the State to put at least 60
per cent of their 1951 cotton crop un
der loan "to prevent further weight
on the declining market during the
next few weeks and still provide some
cash to help meet their past and cur
rent operating costs of this year's
crop." .. .V '
The farm leader pointed out that
the House Committee on Agriculture
is requesting that the Secretary of
Agriculture stockpile two million
bales of cotton to stimulate export
markets and build up a strategic re
serve in the event of all-out war.
He said that the ' committee also
urged that the department arrange
with the Export-Import Bank for im
mediate resumption of loans to for
eign countries for the purchase of
American cotton, and that everything
possible be done to expedite such pur
chases during the next few weeks in
order to remove from the market the
temporary surplus which might prove
disastrous price-wise to farmers com
pelled to sell their cotton during this
Shaw said that the current cotton:
crop has been one of the costliest
ones in history, and that the average
farmer has had to pay from 8 to 9
cents per pound more to produce this
Shaw said that during a recent
meeting of Farm Bureau cotton lead
ers and members of the Delta Council,
which he attended in New Orleans,
experts predicted that the current
slump in the price of cotton would be
only temporary, but pointed out "with
many cotton farmers, especially the
small ones urgently in need of money
with which to psr-their high produc
tion and harvesting cpsi, the Tush
pf cotton to market may force the
price down to th support level unless
jfte loan la used.'' . ' "?
OThe Farm Bureau official pointed
out that with the cotton loan program
it would: 1. Promote orderly market
ing of a big crop. 2. Strengthen the
market and protect prices, and 3.
Provide needed cash immediately. '
Shaw said that even if the cotton
crop this year turns out to be some
what more than 17 million bales as
predicted by the Department of Ag
riculture, the carry-over would still
be relatively light on the basis of an
ticipated " domestic and foreign con
sumption. Revival Services

A series of revival services will be
conducted at the Chappell Hill Bap
tist Church, beginning Sunday, Sep
tember 2, it was announced today.
