In the era in which cotton was the
mainstay of the south’s economic
system, Milam county was an aver
age large producer. A 20-year aver-
age in that period was 56,000 hales.
In 1920 the largest crop on record
was 80,000 hale*. *
Happier days have come to the
farms generally over Milam county
because there are other engagements,
principally live stock and poultry.
The cotton area of Milam county has
gone largely to live stock and to
poultry and the result has been bet-
ter farm incomes. There is no deny-
ing however, the government pro-
gram, plus labor shortages, have
caused the collapse of cotton fann-
ing. Until such time as (he land own-
er can compete in the labor market
we will not see cotton revived.
The current report by Jess Thomp-
son, statistician for the Department
of Commerce shows that there were
I only 17,815 bales of cotton ginned in
| Milam county through March 1, 1946
i as compared to 16,936 bales for the
crop of 1944 through the same period.
Cotton Chop insurance and other
| government aids to production must

j until such time as conditions war-
rant his full participation in the
world’s cotton growing.

the community a little closer to its
l <>nl of giving every crippled child a
chance for a useful life.

ei with the needs of adult* injured

ing public cooperation in the seal
sale which opened March 21 and con-
tinue* until Easter Sunday to finance

crippled children registered in our
nation, with about seven million
adults crippled by accident or di s-
ease and one hundred thousand new
ones added each year, and with be-
tween fourteen and fifteen thousand
amputees returned to civilian life, we
get an overaoll picture of the great
group of citizens who need the spec-
ial services which the city, county,
state and national group of affiliated
Societies are bringing to the crippled
of our nation.”

her committee: Mrs. John T. Hale,
Rockdale, Mrs. G. M. Sessions, Rock-
