That Faulkner County’s 1937 cotton crop will be the biggest since the record yield of 39,864 bales in 1931 was assured today when Census Agent Fred W. Halter reported 24,045 bales had been ginned up to Dec. 13. The next largest crop since 1931 was 24,111 bales in 1932 and this number is certain to be exceeded, although it is unlikely that the total crop for 1937 will be much above 25,000 bales. Last year only 112 bales were ginned after Dec. 13, but this was an exceptionally small number.
