Gus Enderlin, Conway ginner, late yesterday purchased Faulkner County’s first bale of 1938 cotton, produced by Ed Hammond on the Opie Hartje farm near Mayflower, paying 10 cents a pound.
V.H. Gragson, local cotton buyer who for seven consecutive years had bought the first bale appearing on the local market, bid 9 cents, which he said was about a cent above the actual market value of the cotton. Enderlin then jumped the bid to a dime and there were no further offers.
