Infra-Red Ray for Cotton.
The newest wrinkle in cotton gin
ning is the use of infra-red rays
to dry moist cotton. The idea is to
keep a constant heat all through the
ginning process. The cotton is heat
ed while going through the extractor
and stands. A battery of 32 infra-red
lights is set up on each unit. By the
time the cotton passes through the
press there is little moisture left.

About half of this acreage was lo
cated in California. Principal areas
of production in that state are Sac
ramento, San Joaquin, San Fernan
do and Imperial valleys.
