Cotton Growers To Ask Wider Choice In Referendums A meeting to discuss whether or not cotton growers should have a wider choice in referendums is scheduled in Dallas for April 24, according to J. Walter Hammond, president of the Texas Farm Bu- reau. The meeting, one of four being sponsored by the American Farm Bureau Federation in the cotton growing states, will be held at the Baker Hotel, beginning at 9 a.m. "Alternative programs to be discussed would 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.
