Posted by Club by Next
Plans, while far from complete,
are going forward rapidly for the
operation of Williamston's entry in
the Coastal Plain Baseball League
this summer, according to President
Leslie T Fowden. The $600 deposit
or "forfeit money" has already been
pledged and the guarantee will be
made ready at the next meeting of
the league directors in Greenville
on the night of February 4th.
Pledges are being made and the
possibility of raising a $2,500 sup
plementary fund is considered bright.
Several $100 cash donations have
already been promised, and there is
a-greater willingnerr. on the part of
others to support the club to some
extent, according to Dick Smith, the
club's new secretary-treasurer.

was perfected last Thursday evening.
Club President Fowden is now con

post. Arrangements were made
yesterday to have one of the man
agerial applicants to report here
within the next few days for ah in

others, and it is believed that Pres

Discussing the baseball situation
and its cost, a fan pointed out yes
terday that fewer undertaking^ keep
more money at liome than a baseball
club. Nearly all of the salaries are
spent locally, and other than that
spent for balls and bats, all the mon

ple in this section save money by
not going to distant towns for amuse

Cotton Sml Should
!>c Cleaned, Craded
Ma<imum yields of eollon can j
secun d only where there is a snf
ficion' number of strong healthy
plants per uciv, evenly distributed
in tin row. For this reason, P. II
Kime, agronomist and cotton breed ,
ing specialist of N C State Col
lege, emphasizes the importance of
cleaning and grading cotton seed
Two of the principal causes of a
poor stand of cotton, he says, are
low germination and low vitality of
seed. Ijow germination of the seed
may be caused by weather damage
in the field, heating of the cotton
seed in storage, or damage to the seed
Continuing Mr Kime said that cot
ton picked while green or damp and
stored in tightly packed bins will
often beat enough to seriously in
jure germination. Cotton seed which !
contain a high percent of moisture
when ginned will also heat if stored
Another cause of low germination
ing and grading cotton seed will
Temovc light-weight immature seed,
burs, poorly ginned seed, black seed
and foreign material.
"If you saved your own planting
seed," the agronomist stated, "then
clean and grade them and by all
means have a germination test made
in time to buy good seed in case
yours do not germinate well. If you
are buying from a neighbor, re
quire that a germination test be
made before you accept them. Seed
handled through regular trade chan
nels carry a tag showing the germin
ation and purity."
The State College specialist also
recommend* that seed be treated
with Ceresan. There are certain dis
eases which cause young cotton
plants to die, especially during cold
cloudy weather. Dusting the seed
with Ceresan will kill the diseases
on the seed and protect the seed from
diseases of the soil, he says.
