    -Mr. Johnson presided over the meeting of the Chandler Egyptian Cotton Growers' Association where he spoke on the meeting with the Mesa Exchange, and how they decided to go with the Chandler Improvement Company's offer.

    Conservative estimates says he will get a bale to a bale and a half per acre on the land that no one expected to do well for cotton.  He says it has to do with how much cultivating, planting more seed, and just plain hard work.  (Chandler Arizonan 8/8/1913)
