The hill does not mean that the City
of Concord has decided definitely to

here, one city official stated this
morning, but it does give the city that
right, should it decide later to take
over the control of the systum. The
present owners of the system declare
no money Ims been made lutiv on the
system for some time, and they have
intimated that they will cease opera
tions unless some relief from the pres
ent conditions is given.
Filling tlmt the. owners might want
to dispose of the property, or censj/ op
erations, the city officials had the bill
giving them, the right to purchase the
property, passed in the Legislature, so
that action could lie taken immediate
ly should they want to take' over the
property, if the hill had not been
passed, they point out, the. city could
not take over the property until the
Legislature meets agttin in 1b25.

Atlanta, Ga., Feb. 2.x. —The National
Campaign for 801 l Weevil Control,
which wan launched in/Atlanta last
; week, does not seek to supplant any
1 existing agency for combatting the
insect pest but has the purpose of
mobilizing new forces and throwing
additional strength to the support of
• those who hare conduced warfare
upon the “Billion Dollar Bandit'’ in
i past years, according to Dr. Miller
! Reese Hutchison, the Alabama scien-
J list who is managing di
rector of the campaign,
j “The widespread effects of the boll
weevil’s ravages make this problem a
matter of concern to the entire pub
lic.*’ Dr. Hutchison said. *\One of the
| objects of this campaign will be to
mobilize a ‘civilian army,’ the strength
; of which will be added to that of the
‘regulars.’ the federal and state agri
cultural agencies. Just as the regu
lar army constitutes the backbone of
the war force when lighting another
nat'on. so are the established agencies
for combatting the boll weevil the
primary factors in this warfare.”

The unprecedented demand for Ford cars

lighting the “Mexican Invader."
At the present tithe, according to Dr.
Hutchison, waij will be waged on the
weevil with all the known weapons at
hand in order to save as much as is
possible of the 1023 crop from de
struction by the pest. This work will
be carried on by means of a campaign
of practical information and demon
stration in all the cotton growing coun
ties of the/ South. Demonstration
farms in these counties, under the di
rection of Experts, will give to the
planters the best me.tliods of lighting
the weevil In their particular area by
use of known poisons, scientific use of
fertilizers and intensive ‘cultivation.
In addition to this work experiments
already are underway to devise new
and better means of exterminating or
controlling the insect. At Dr. Hutchi
son's request, experiments are now be
ing carried on at Clemson College*, S.
C\, with the idea of lighting the pest
through sterilization of the eggs by
means of X-rays stored in chemical
salts. Another experiment, suggested
by.Hudson Maxim at the Conference,
will be conducted shortly with the
idea o£ developing a sex-lure for the
weevil whlcfli can be übed with a
suitable poison and thus attract the in
sects to tluir doom.
