Remember Mama MAY8 Last word we had on the 1977 re-opening of the Glencoe cotton gin is that there is little chance that this will be done. Seems like there are rules, regulations, new standards for updating the equipment, making the project more expensive than was first believed. 1977 cotton acreage in Payne County is expected to be somewhere near 350 acres, as compared to less than 50 acres last year. Price for lint cotton at present is quoted at 62c a pound. Since modern methods of cotton culture make "bale an acre" cotton not too difficult to achieve, the present price makes a cash return of $300, or more an acre (gross that is) possible. Wheat at present quotes $2.15 per bushel is far below cost of production. Even so, there needs to be a profound psychological change in a farmer's make-up before he can pasture off a promising (yield-wise) wheat crop, replow his land and "gear- up" for cotton. The gin at Guthrie will be operating this year as will the .gin at Ralston. Neither of these gins is located in Payne County. Costs of transporta- tion have to be figured. Mrs. Vernon Disel (Doro- thy) entertained the Worth- while Club from Cushing The recently at her home in Diamond Valley. Rachel Driskel and Edna wilson were among the guests. The list of names is too long since we are short of time, but we were happy to see Allie Gillespie among the mem- bers. Allie and I have been friends since school days in Ripley. 1977 first cutting of alfalfa yielded "better thah the first cutting has been for the past several years." Moreover the quality is first rate, and nearly everyone got their hay intothe barns before the rain came. Diamond Valley Young People turned in quite a nice lot of aluminum cans from the collection drive Saturday, and celebrated with a wiener roast at the Byron Loucks home. Kenneth Sumpter distinguished himself as a skillful firemaker. That fire with its accompanying col- umns of blue smoke was worthy of an artist's best effort. Besides, the fire was well behaved, stayed in place, and properly put to sleep when the feast was over. Bullfrogs in the pond nearby supplied music. Next Friday evening, May, 6, is the time for the Invitational Music Festival at Diamond Valley.
