A one-crop system takes the life
out of the soil and impoverishes the
people. It is only through diversified
farming and thc using of our
energies every day in the year that
we can make a rich Country and a

f Diversified farming means live
stock, dairying, crop rotation, more
pastures, less washing of the soil,
more productive land, greater profits.
Wherever you ?n raise corn and
clovers you can grow dairy cattle
and wherever you find d: iry cattle
you will find h:vjj priced land and
prosperous, growing communities.

This wide-spread and enthusiastic

in the success of the nation-wide
movement to control the boll weevil,

for an eexpenditure of $2,500,000.

on an immediate fight against
thi boil weevil by bringing the best

control to the cotton grower*
in every one rf the 840 counties of
