I don’t know how many of you are old enough to remember cotton growing here on the prairie, but I often think of it. We drive along a pasture each day that was still a cotton field when I was a teenager. I remember my cousin chopping weeds in those long straight rows. There are still vestiges of the old gin standing in Kenefic. Some of my favorite Caddo pictures are of the tremendous cotton crops. Here is a count of bales for October, 1938.
The Caddo Herald
Octboer 21, 1938
County Ginnings Pass 10,000 Mark- May Reach 11,000
Bryan County ginnings for 1938 passed 10,000 Saturday:
Total 10, 288
From this it would seem to indicate better than 11,000 for the county this season.
