PAGE TWO COUNTY AGENT GIVES BOLL WEEVIL FACTS Advises AII Farmers to Give Attention j to Diversification. Tarboro, X. F., March I.—Zeno. Moore, county a sent for Edgecombe county, thinks that some additional ‘'bare-bone facts” should be given the. state. His facts do not have to do witlf* State finances directly, but in directly they do, for be is looking at the financial condition of that farmer • who plants all available land to cotton this year. In a recent letter to offi cials of the Agricultural Extension Service, he points out that some vital facts are neither being given attention nor prominent parts in the drama now being enacted called "Fighting the Cot ton Boil Weevil.” He says further that some of his facts will perhaps run counter so public tast£ and others of them are r.ot in accord with what some people think are best for the personal interest of tlie_ North Caro lina farmer. The extension service Is striving for a reduction in cotton acreage per farm this year and for a ”liye-at-home” - .program of farming that will make the 'North Carolina farmers less dependent in case, the weevil does destroy bis cotton crop.. * lmt some others, finds Mr. Moore, are preaching that cotton growing should be continued as formely and so lie points out the following addressed par ticularly to Edgecombe comity farm ers. "Fact No. 1 is that of all the people in the world, all who are not making cotton want you to keep on making cotton. They all argue, in substance, that since ‘we' need the cotton, you should continue to make codon/ Not many of them are interested in vouf crop making a profit. Or, if so. rather advisedly. That is. interested to get it as cheaply us they can. This might account fdr. some solicitude from outside sources. “Home of • the things recommended might help you to make a little more cotton. It is for you to decide svef her or not they will enable you to make any more profit. "Fact No. 2 is that of those valiant fellows who are just itching for a light with the pest, so. anxious that they are pawing up. dirt and burying their horns in the ditch bank,-will not hear of a red deed cotton acreage, or substitute crops or of other lines of farming. Such a course, if carried tp its logical conclusion, would mean plant more than the scoundrel can eat. Feed him to death. “Fa/ct No. T* is. The IMI weevil makes only one demand. Given that condition, he will let you name every other condition and will light you and win. That is. the battle must be staged in a cotton field. That is all he has ever demanded. And on that lone condition he ffiis always won. sometimes gaining only a small space of territory and inflicting only a light Fresh from the faucet! —the filtered styles in Men’s Spring Flats!
