Julv 6?"The cotton crop i of North Carolina is unusually prom ising considering the planting seas-I ons and is the largest In its history." I according to a statement issued here : today by Frank I'arker. statistician! of the co-operative crop report ser-j vice of the 1'. S. and N. C. Depart-] ments of Agriculture. The report is based on information received from; 26 counties of the State^ -With the acreage at 103 perecnt." | says the report "North Carolina shows the least increase of any state, ft is reported that the in crease Would have been more had the April report not been given pub licity^ That re#ort showed the same acrea'ge per cent according to the planting intentions of several thou sand cotton farmers. It is further recognized that It was the specula tor who suffered most by that 'In tentions' report, _ which indicated prospective planting. "The present condition of 80 per cent of a normal per full crop pros pect for 256 pounds per acre, if ap plied to the 1.7030460 pound acres means that the crop might be ovri* 910.000 (bales if the state conditions remain fiavorable. The boll weevil and adverse weather conditions mu>*t Ibe reckoned with before the early frost gets its share. These figure.* are based on conditions now and do not include any but favorable In fluences to follow. The last crop made 250 pounds per acre and 851, I 000 bains. "There are estimated to have been planted in the United States the greatest acreage of any year. 38.287. 000 acres with a prospective yield of ,11.412.000 bales or 17 percent in crease over the 19^2 production. The presfirTTondltlon pfospeets are 1.3% ^below last year's report and s^x per .cent below the ten yc^r average. "The weather conditions ih North (Carolina have ibeen unusually favor 'able for cotton during June. The re cent rains have helped to relieve the (drought that might soon have be icome serious, even on cotton. The ! bool weevil has not become notice ably bad but Its prpence and activi ties are now cl&iitflng the attention iof the southern cotton counties of the state. The sands are pporest on the stiff eastern soils and In the northern Piedmont or clay belt. The crop has grown and recuperated won derfully during June." DEMPSEY NEXT WILL FIGHT HARRY WILIS I Br Th?!

Kven the I roads they boast of are so bad that they shake a car literally to piece*, and their tbad ones are awful.

THINK SOUTH IS NOT INTERESTED Negroes Leave Because They _Bclieve White People Are Not Concerned With Their Welfare Says Dr. Alexander Lake Junaluska, July ft.?Speak Ins: before the Social Service Confer ence of* the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in session here. Dr. Will L Alexander of Atlanta, secre tary of the Commission on Inter-ra cial Co-operation discussed the "Ne gro Migration." Declaring that hark of th? present ejj^dua aLlhe negroes Ilea a dcfinitc^tffu widespread migra tion phvschology, Dr. Alexander gave what are in his opinion some of the principal causes of the unrest among negroes in the South. He states that his facts were for the most part gath ered in Georgia hut that similar con ditionii existed in other Southern states. North Carolina, Virginia. Kentucky, and Tennessee, the states Vhiclt^Jiavc done the most for the rural education of the negro have suffered less than the others from the migration. Dr. Alexander assert ed. Commentlhg on the fact that In the past^sj^e^-nmnths. approximately 500,00tf"' people have left the farms of the South, the majority of whom were negcocs. the speaker declared that tlilft exodus was a continuation of a movement which had been un der way to some extent since the war between the states. The last census, lie said, showed a marked change In negro population between 191o and 1920 a great drift away from the rural-districts of the South. The cen ter of negro population, he said has drifted ID mttes north. -This drift. accentuated during the period of in dustrial expansion resulting from the World War. ceased almost en tirely during the post war period of depression but with the revival of business It has again set In and Is now going forward with increasing volume. In the past. said Dr. Alexander, I the movement has been from the ru-1 ral to the urban South and from Southern to Northern cities, but the present move In from Southern farms to Northern Industrial centers. Deny-j Ing that the preaent migratory move-, ment In due for the moat part to la bor recruiters. Dr. Alexander'attrlb-j uted much of the unrest to a wide spread discouragement among South ern negroes. They can see little Im provement In their present situation, and they do not feel that Southern people are Interested Irt them, he de clared. And this state of mind Is sc-j centuated by the present economic' condition. Crop and market condi tions ?lnce the World War have brought a severe test to the South ern farmers and the negro farmers have, along with the others, fallen * Into hard times. I,ate In 1922, said the speaker. Northern Industries be gan a program of expansion and by early 1923 prosperity was announced as at hand. The Southern negro was. the only available supply of un-| skilled labor necessary to Industrial expansion and with the present stated of negro psychology the migration was Inevitable. The desire smone negroes for ed ucatlon for their children, according to Dr. Alexander, has had a stronger pull -than the lure of high wages and f negroes who are going from the ruf-I al South to the North are seeking' better educational facilities and op-' port unities for their chlfdrerf. Nor do tbe negroes of the South desire to aaaoclate socially with the white people, asserted Dr. Alexander. ' Thfy d.0, boweyer. feel that the aeg ragatlon laws often work an In/iks-' tlce upon them In the matter of street car seats and the like. As *i matter-of (act. he said, the masses, of the negroes In the North are as far removed from the whites as they J are ip the South. There are fewer restriction* In travel, but negroes live In negro neighborhoods, attend negro churches and move In a negro world. There la no evidence In the North that the wiping out of color lines Is even considered on the part! of either the white or the negro If negroes really feel that white people hare lost Interest In them, CURIOUS NOTIONS ON BOI L WEEVIL Some Folks Think They're Eating 'Em Willi Their Snap Beans and Their Blackber ries Bhl They Aren't Bealiy ? Hjli'lkll. Jlllli1 6 fipM-i.i) iimuhiiM n'Pt'lvpil by the State Board of Health from widely separated sec tions of ll><- StiiI?? indicate a fear of the boll-weevil that is entirely tin founded. Tin- SiiU'1 Hoard <*f HeaTtfi |i a~d vising dial iKTiT pent the cotton 4>laiXL_ia_ without danger other than the damage which it does to one of the State's leading farm product*. It does not infest fruits or berries, ft or any of ihe .garden VrgrTaWr-s." such as corn, beans, cabbage, let ' tuce. okra. tomatoes, or the like. The only food that satisfies the ap petite of this insect is the cQttoti boll, and it eats this perfectly when j young and tender, when the squares ; are Just forming. Popular superstition has _en J larged the field of activity of this i it - [ sect which is causing a revolution sin the agricultural - habits of the~ I entire South. In sopie sections the i weevil is reported In ?the black ! berries. From another comes the ? report of having found It in the Liiura. A far eastern "county attr ibuted a serious illness to the weevil ,having been cooked along with some snap beans. A Piedmont county Uhought it was Infesting the cabbage. In all instances a consuming fear seems to huve taken* posession of .some of the people leat the jboll weevil t??e'their-lives. In answering such inquiries the State Board -of?Health, has en ? deavored to reassure those unduly fearful with the definite -statement that there Is nothing to fear from the boll weevil except the partial destruction of the cotton crop. The insect Is not poisonous and Infests only the cotton plant. Central States Note Increase In Travel Chicago.

Disabled world war veterans of (Michigan have wel comed the offer recently made by the Henry Ford Hospital and already more than fifty are undergoing treatment at the big Institution. All of thf veterans are admitted In the same manner as private pa tients and are treated on exactly the same basis. They are entitled to and receive the tame quality of ser vice and are distributed to the var ious units In the hospital, according to the availability of rooms. The first thought was to open a special unit for these men. but the hospital officials on consideration felt th*? men would 'be better satis fied If they were distributed through out the hospital with the other ps tients and accordingly this plan was carried out.
