A PRACTICAL COTTON INSECT CONTROL PROGRAM
Riming ol int.Oi.id. application, bajod on rocommandation. of North Caroline State College
This season, cotton farmers in North
Carolina are being offered a new con
cept in cotton insect control. :■
The new program is the result of
research studies conducted by North
Carolina State College, and has been
called a practical, economical, and
profitable method of producing cot
ton in this area. *
According to North Carolina State
officials the new method is more
simple, more effective, and more eco
nomical than previous programs.
State officials urge the adoption of
this new program, since it will tend
• to insure the production of higher
yields of cotton at lower cost and
with less risk.
Although the new program is de
signed to control boll weevils more
effectively, there are built-in sea

Exemptions Os Debtors
What, in general, is meant by
the exemption laws of debtors?
All states have statutes known
as exemption laws, which pro
vide that, no matter how just a
debt may be that is due, certain
property may not be levied upon
and sold to satisfy a judgment.
These laws differ greatly in the
several states. Many of these
statutes go into much detail,
naming in many instances a
long list, mainly household ar
ticles, which are exempt.
The eastern states are far less
liberal than the western states.
In California, for example, the
head of a family is allowed a
homestead exemption of not ex
ceeding $5,000 in addition to a
long list of personal articles.
I In North Carolina there are
two types of exemptions, both
provided for in the Constitution
of Nortion Carolina: personal
property exemptions and home
stead exemptions. In this State
,a debtor may assert free from
the claims of his creditors any
of his personal property up to
tures which improve control of other
cotton insect pests.
Scientific proof of dates when in
sects emerge and migrate, combined
with data on critical plant develop
ment stages, laid the groundwork for
the program timing. Latest infor
mation on modem insecticides and
equipment formed the basis for the
chemicals and methods of applica
tion recommended by State officials
for use in the program.
Basically the program is one of
“preventive control.” At the eight
leaf stage, the farmer should make
four applications at five-day inter
vals using recommended insecticides
at the proper dosages. If small boll
worms injure 5 percent or more of the
squares during the mid-season pe
riod an additional application of a
the value of five hundred dollars
and a homestead of not exceed
ing one thousand dollars in real
These exemption laws are de
signed to prevent a grasping
creditor from taking all of the
property of his debtor so that
the debtor and the debtor's]
family are not left destitute,!
without clothing and* ’furniture, j
tools necessary to earn a live- 1
iihood, or the means to make a,
new financial start in life —in
short in a position where they
must become public charges.
The public interest is made by
law superior to the private
claim of a private creditor.
If the judgment debtor has
neither real nor personal prop
erty out of which a judgment
can be satisfied, the securing of
a judgment in a court action
may be a barren victory. One
cannot get blood out of a turnip.
There can toe no imprisonment
for ordinary debts.
How does a debtor assert his
personal property exemption?
Unlike the homestead exemp
tion, the debtor is not entitled
to a SSOO personal property ex
emption unless he or his attor
ney makes a demand that the
exemption be set apart to him.
After a judgment has been ob
tained in a legal action, the
sheriff or other officer will levy
upon the property of the debtor.
It is at this point, or at any
time before the sale of the prop
erty or the appropriation of it by
the court to satisfy the judgment
that the debtor or his attorney
demands the exemption.
Who makes the appraisal for
personal property and home
The sheriff or other officer
making the levy summons three
recommended insecticide should be
Regular applications should be re
sumed on July 24. Continue these
applications at five-day intervals un
til plants stop squaring.
The farmer is urged to provide
spider mite control throughout the
season by cultural methods or by
use of miticides.
Throughout the season, it is rec
ommended that fanners use the
broadcast method of application
with boom-type sprayers or dusters.
On dusters use flat dust nozzles.
Sprayer booms should have hollow
cone nozzles spaced 20 inches apart
on booms. The booms should be far
enough above cotton plants so that
the nozzle patterns will overlap be
fore reaching the plants.
The debtor has a right to se-|
lect the articles to be appraised!
and laid off as his property ex
