Cotton farmers for
wider choice as to
DALLAS—A meeting to dis-
cuss whether or not cotton grow-
ers should have a wider choice
in referendums is scheduled here
for April 24, according to J. Wal-
ter Hammond, president of the
Texas Farm Bureau.
The meeting, one of four be-
ing sponsored by the American
Farm Bureau Federation in the
cotton growing states, will be
held at the Baker Hotel, begin-
ning at 9 a.m.
‘Alternative programs to be
discussed wou’d not supercede the
present program,” Hammond ex-
plained. “Farmers would simply
have the choice of the present
program or any alternate pro-
gram that is developed,” he said.
Commenting on the purpose of
the meeting, Hammond slated, “It
is generally recognized that the
present piogram leaves no choice
to the cotton farmer.”
It is hoped, he said, that these
meetings sponsored by the AFBF
will develop a “more realistic”
“In order for any such alter-
native plans to be presented to
growers in the next referendum,
of course, necessary legislation
will be required during the pres-
ent session of Congress,” he said.
“Therefore time is of the es-
Hammond encouraged all cot-
ton growers to attend the Dallas
meeting and “make their
thoughts known” on the matter.

operates his business at 627 E.
Heron street, has just received
a new shipment of material to
meet his constantly increasing
trade demands, he stated while

Mr. Green, who started his bus-
iness in a small way relatively
a short time back, handles the
well known fabric chain link

and varied possibilities for both
the home and farm.
The manner in which Mr.
Green sets up his fence jobs has
met with instant approval of his
customers, being firmly fixed in
the earth with hot-dip galvanized
tubing steel, carefully anchored
to prevent swagging, and also
set in such manner as to with-
stand storm and ordinary abuse.
Mr. Green features beautiful
fence jobs for the home as well
as farm, and the residential spec-
ifications are such, he states, that
his fence jobs not only add beauty
but protects the yard and lawn
and add value to the home.
He is glad to make the proposi-

STOCKER COW AND PAIRS
FIND STRONG MARKET
In the special sale of stocker
cows and pairs at Fort Worth last
week the total of over 1,900 head
included 1,258 which went back
to country as replacement and
some 350 aged cows and fat heif-
ers went into packer channels.
Most of the pairs ranged from
$140 to $165, with a few as high
as $190 to $200. Some sold by
the pound and others by the head.
Typical of the strong rates for
the better kinds was the ship-
ment of 17 pairs consigned by
Ray Boothe of Sweetwater which
sold with the cows at $17 and the
the case a year earlier. The May
10 event will include a show, as
well as a sale, with both the Tex-
as Hereford Association and the
Texas Aberdeen-Angus Associa-
tion, judging entries of their
breeds prior to the sale.
