The article reports on the plea of William B. Dunavant Jr., former president of the National Cotton Council (NCC), for the four council segments to work together with the NCC officialdom for the good of the organization. The four NCC councils are composed of producers, ginners, cooperatives and warehouses. Dunavant felt that the NCC did not represent well the voice of the merchant sector concerning the storage of cotton outside approved warehouses in 2005.
