At this time eligible voters
be asked: “Are you in favor of con-
tinuing the Bankhead act for next
year (June 1, 1935 to May 31 1936?)”
new Thor An eligible voter is defined in the act
as a “person who has the legal or
equal right, as owner, tenant, share*
cropper, or otherwise to produce cot-
ton on any cotton farm or part there
of, in the United States for the crop
According to that, any person is
eligible who signed a 1934-35 reduc-
tion contract as well as any person
who is or was eligible for tax-ex-
emption certificates in 1934. Any
other person is eligible, who presents

right to produce cotton on a cotton
farm, or any person who signs and

This referendum is provided for in
the Bankhead act itself. If two-
thirds of the farmers who have a
legal right to produce cotton favor
the continuation of the Bankhead act,
and if the president finds and pro-
claims that the emergency in cotton
production and marketing will con-
tinue to exist, the provisions of the
act will be extended to cover the
crop year 1935-36.
A voting box will be placed in each
community within the county. These
places will be announced in next

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 5.—
Members of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars are warned in a bulletin sent
from national headquarters of the
organization here against participa-
tion in any proposed “bonus marches”
The order, signed by James F. Van
Zandt, commander in chief of the
V. F. W., charged that those spon-
soring “these proposed bonus march-
es are merely interested in ferment-
ing revolution and discontent.”
“The bonus march two years ago
was directly responsible for the de-
feat of pending legislation for im-
mediate cash payment of adjusted
compensation certificates,” the order
Declaring that the V. F. W. would
conduct its campaign for immediate

That’s what Marion used to call herself—she always
did feel that she had to stay close at hand while the
washing was being done. And she practically lost
the whole day.
Now she uses our “Rough Dry” service that washes
and dries everything and irons flat work. The price is
low—and no more need for her to be the “nurse-girl”
of the washing.
