CVurolina has come to the
forefront la the prodadfon of cotton
with a staple length of one to one
end one-sixteenth Inches, Jya Glenn
R. Smith, of the agricqttaral econo
mics department of the North Caro
lina' experiment station.
Growers in North Carolina have
greatly improved their staple length,
and are ahead of all other states east
of the Mississippi River, he said.
This year 57 per cent of the cotton
had a staple length of one inch or
more; last year0only 27 per cent of
the crop had such staple quality.
Only 21 per cent of the cotton was
shorter than 16-16 of on inch, he
added, while last year 44 per cent of
the lint fell short of this staple
The grade of the cotton this year
is about the same as that of last
year, Smith said. Farmers have gin
ned their cotton slowly and even
though the early part of the season
was wetter than usual, the cotton was
allowed to dry out before ginning.

given farmers more time to take
better care of their crop and has en
couraged them to plant the better
varieties so61 as to realize the most
possible off the land they did have in
Local mills prefer the longer staple
lint, he added, and North Carolina
growers will find in them a better
market this year than in the past
when the staple length of their crop
was relatively short.
Previously the amount of long
staple lint was small he explained,
and the mills preferred to obtain
their cotton from other areas where
they could buy it in large quantities
of even-running lots. This year they
can buy large lots of such cotton in

Growth Of Poultry
To Be Expanded
The increased demand for poultry
and fresh eggs over present produc
tion is leading to a conservative ex
pa sion of the poultry industry in
North Carolina, according to Roy S.
Dearstyne, head of the poultry de
partment at State College.
Hatcheries in the State are already
booked far ahead, he said, and in
dications point to a favorable season
for the hatchery industry.
The development- of hatcheries
within the State leads to a balanced
industry, he added, 3ince the poultry
men utilize the superior products of
the hatchery in improving their flocks
and the hatcheries pay premiums for
good eggs from the poultrymen. The
two phases of the industry are inter
dependent Aa the hatching season approaches,
poultrymen should start putting their
brooding and housing equipment in
good condition and lay plans for man
aging their flocks for a successful
brooding season, Dearstyne said.
Probably the most important factor
in the success or failure of the com
ing year lies in the quality of baby
chicks hatched or purchased, he con
tinued. If the chicks are not of prov
en stock, high in lateljiy , and de
scended from high producing, blood
tested parents,-no-amount of equip
ment, care in feeding, or. manage
ment "rwill develop a quality flock.
Jei production of quality chicks is
ensive, he pointed out, but it is
welf-worth the extra cost. ; Constant
culling to eliminate low producers,
blgflid tests, and sanitation' and feed
ing, cost money. But a few,., cents

N. C. MOTORISTS PAY
HUGE SUM IN TAXES
Motorists of North Carolina are
bearing as their direct share cf the
state's tax burden, 62 per cent of
the entire revenue of the state from
tax sources, an analysis of the figures
of the state's revenue for the fiscal
year 1933-34 reveals. This is levied
directly against them as motorists,
and does not contain any of the taxes
they pay in common with the rest of
the citizens of the State.
Gasoline taxes are. the largest
single source of revenue to the State
this analysis shows, contributing 33.9
per cent of Jhe entire ta revenue.
Next in order come motor vehicle
registrations at 14.9 per cent, fran
chise taxes at 14.4 .per cent, income
taxes at 13.1 per cent, and the gen
eral sales tax at 12.3 per cent Mo
torists paid altogether 128,300,568' for
the privilege- of Using their cars, out
of a' total -tax revenue of $44,733,
772.99, or 52.5 per cent of the total.
These figures do not include the in
come taxes paid by motor vehicle ac
cessory, and gasoline dealers, and
truck and bus operators during the
year. If these figures, together with
the income taxes paid by men who
use their cars in business, were in
cluded, the total would doubtless ri3e
to 55 per cent And then no consid
eration is taken of the other taxes
which car owners as citizens and
business men of this state pay
through other channels just the same
as any other citizen pays them.
"The motorists of the State have
accepted this tax burden in the paat,
because they have been assured that
the money levied directly against
them was to be used for their benefit
on the highways of the state," Mr.
J.' L. Belote, secretary of the North
Carolina Petroleum Industries Com
mittee, said in commenting on these
figures. "But we had a raid on these
funds at the last General Assembly
