Reduction of the minimum hale re
quirement to make its membership con

constitute sweeping changes in the
plans of the Georgia Cotton Growers
Co-operative association, announced
through Director of the organization,
A. A. Elmore, Monday morning.
Mr. Elmore gave out a written state
ment explaining the purposes of the
change which is set forth below:
‘<The greatest, almost the onlj
cause of hesitancy toward signing the
‘association contract and paying the
necessary membership fee, which we
have encountered anjong the farmers
recently has been the feeling of doubt
as to whether the association could
ego over”’ within the time limit set,
-considering the temporary loss to the
association of a whole! strip across the
middle of the state where the devasta
tion wrought by the boll weevil has
been so great that vast numbers of the
farmers believe now that they will nev
er raise another stalk of cotton.
By this extension, giving us three
additional months in which to work
and giving us a minimum bale require
ment of which practically fifty per
cent has already been secured, the
.successful completion of the associa
tion becomes thoroughly assured ami
this ground of hesitancy removed. It
is always easier to obtain membership
in a completed organization than in a
contingent one, and we wish to reach
the point of completion at the easi
est possible date.
We are about to launch a great new
campaign, in which we will have the
assistance of the American Cotton
'Growers’ Exchange and other forces
and we wish to start this new drive
under the most favorable auspices.
,We hope to pass our new minimum
.within two or three weeks after the
new' drive is started, and to keep up
the work without let-up until we have
.Signed fifty per cent of the cotton
growers of the state.”

We are sending out statements
to all our subscribers that are in
arrears to the Winder News. We
must get our subscription list in
shape right away. We have car
ried our subscribers through the
summer thinking that we were
doing them a favor in so doing.
Some few are ordering their pa
per stopped now' without paying
up what they owe. We do not
know how many will treat us
that way, hence we must insist
on everybody letting us know
about the matter. All who do
not intend to pay will be taken
off the list. The amount that
each one owes is small, and we
feel that you can either pay in
full or at least pay part and let
us know what to expect. Within
the next few weeks if you fail
to get your paper you may know
that you are behind and we have
not heard from you. If you re
ally want the paper and will pay
by Christmas, l§t us know and
we will be glad to credit you un
til that time.
We are not after those of our
patrons who have paid in the
past and intend to pay in the
near future, but we are trying to
find out who are the deadbeats
we have on our list. We intend
to cut all of these off and they
will have to pay strictly in ad
vance to get the paper. Look at
the date on your paper and if
it is not right come in and let’s
get the date straightened out.
We appreciate those of our
subscribers who have paid up,
and assure them that it will be
a pleasure to accommodate them
in every way possible. We can
not continue to publish the
News unless we can collect our
subscriptions. If you are due

let’s have an understanding
