Part Time Farmers
Advocated By Wilson
The eventual solution of the
landlord-tenant problem will pro
bably be found in giving industrial
employment to farmers who are no
longer needed in agriculture, said
M. L. Wilson, assistant secretary of
agriculture, who spoke at the State
College Farm and FLbme exercises
Fie predicted a time when a
balance of agriculture and indust
ry, together with a shortening of
hours and a division of employ
ment would provide jobs for all
who wish to work.
There is no reasons, he said, why
industrial workers cannot have
small plots of land on which they
live in security insofar as producing
their food is concerned. Under
such a system, they could work
short hours in the factory and still
make a living wage.
The shorter hours of work mean
more work for other people, and
thereby take care of the surplus
farmers. In some cases, he added
it would be well for the wag<
earners to work in factories part o
the year and on farms the othe
part when they are most needed ii

Cotton Farmers Want
Crop Control Continued
D. W. Watkins, assistant chief
of the AAA cotton section, told
visitors attending Farm and Flome
week that some form of produc
tion control is essential to the per
manent prosperity of agriculture.
The AAA reduction program are
emergency measures, he explained,
and probably will be revised a great
deal before a longtime program is
offered the American farmers.
But it is clearly evident, he said,
that some form of nation-wide
cooperation is necessary, for it fias
been demonstrated time and again
that unorganized farmers have but
little show in the world of organ
ization in which they live.
Surveys made in many sections
of the country have indicated that
neatly all the growers who are
cooperating with the AAA and who
are receiving benefit payments want
the programs continued.
There has been some agitation in
certain quarters, he said, for aband
oning the Bankhead act and the
programs, but it is largely the work
of non-cooperating growers and in
terests which profit most when
cotton prices are low.
The cooperating growers have
earned their payments, he said, and
it would be unfair to them to de
prive them of these payments by
discontinuing the program. He
also pointed to the demoralization
of markets that would follow the
increase in pruuucuon snouia ail

He said the talk about unfavor

that is necessary is without found

carry over for this year will be
around 10,00,000 bales, only 3,
000,000 bales short of the highest
carryover* on record, he said.
It will take another year or two

SON SLAYS HIS FATHER '
Dan Little, 60, was slain by his
23-year-old son, Roy, at the Little
hoflie about 9 miles out from Con
cord. The boy surrendered after
killing his father, and he unfolded
a sordid tale which seems to be
verified by neighbors acquainted
with the man. The father had
threatened to kill every member of
the family "before daylight,” and
he carried a double-barrel shotgun
about the house with him. The
dead man was accused of being
the father of children, born to two
of his own daughters, and was
otherwise a bad man.
