One kind of over-production U
about as bad as another, but there
ought to be Uttte need of tolling the
cotton growers or tobacco producers
about it- They have been up ngalnet
it more than once and they certainly
ought to know from experience what
it means. The "one-crop idea' is
just us unwise in the wheat growing
country as it is in this floe cotton
and tobacc growing country of ours.
Tho wheat growers also have been;
up against It and they, too, know
what the one-crop idea will do for a
farmer. In "Bleeding Kansas' a few
years ago the “wheat only" Idea
plastered a ruoi tgage on nearly every
farm in that Stale.
The opposite of the one-crop Idea
is divervfi.-slu.n of farm products,

The Mount Airy Times Leader
says the opinion is that the tobacco
acreage in that section of North Car
olina nnd m (he adjacent taction of
Virginia will b* largely reduced. That
statement la based on cnnvcrMttani
“•o wiin uKiinornwtri t>y Mr. K.
It. Mimmoni, urrsluy and treasurer
of the Sorry County Tobacco Dry
Prise Company. He says he gets
hia lmpmt'tm from interviews with
farmers in Surry, Stokes end other
near-by counties in both North Caro
lina and Virginia.
The Mount Airy paper approves
tobacco acreage reduction and de
clares that the farmers are finally
awaking to the fact that tha sensible
thing for them to do la to diversify
their farming operations—raise more
corn, wheat, oats, grass, beef and
pork, and lev* tobacco and cotton."
Certainly that it what any farmer
should do. Diwrsi/icmtion is always
the wise thing, and in this part of
the country the farmers have a bat
ter opportunity to do it than farmers
elsewhere in any portion of the world.
