Cotton Income Higher On Less Acreage Return Double That Of 1932 Phillips Finds Mecklen burgers Receiving More On Third Less Acreage Charlotte.—The farmers of Mecklenburg county this fall will receive double the amount of money for their cotton produced on a third less acres than were devoted to cot ton in 1932, Oscar H. Phillips, Mecklenburg farm agent, pointed out in developing his theme that the Bankhead cotton control act has saved the: farmers of the south and with them the entire economic structure of the south. "Mecklenburg farmers will re ceive approximately $1,300,000 for their 1934 cotton,” said Mr. Phillips, "as against $650,000 in 1932. The cotton has been raised on about 23,000 acres, where in 1932 it took 35,000 acres to grow a crop that brought in just half the amount this crop is bringing. "The money cotton is bringing is not the only thing of advantage, either. Look at those 12,000 acres released for other crops and for general improvement of the land.” Mr. Phillips declared virtually all the farmers are delighted with the way the cotton program is working out, although he admitted there are some disgruntled cotton growers who have charged that' the plan is now being improperly administered. "Of course, there are some things that must be worked out and of course some mistakes will be made in carrying out a program of this sjze,” he declared, "but the pro gram is being administered fairly and absolutely without regard to a man’s politics, color, religion or anything else, just as fairly as I know how to have it administered. As far as I know, no partiality hasj been shown, certainly none inten tionally, and if mistakes have been! made they can be and will be ad justed.” Had no cotton production con trol law been passed, the south • would now be in the very depths of despair, the farm agent declared. "There would have been a large crop and the price would have been very low, probably lower than the 5 1-2 cents it had dropped to under the Hoover administration,” said he. "In fact, there may have been no price at all, no demand for cot ton because of the huge over-pro duction. But things are decidedly different since the farmers got to gether and asked the government to help them work out a control plan. | After all, it was the farmers who J did it. They made their allotments, \ set up their plan. The government simply aided them. And it has ab-' solutely saved the southern farmers! md with them the whole economic ■ structure.” -• - In 1932 he pointed out, cotton svas bringing about $30 a bale and seed about $5. Now it is bringing $75 and upward, and since it was raised on less acreage, the 1934 crop was produced at considerably less expense. On top of that, land not used for cotton is bringing in other revenues or is being improv ed, he pointed out. Richberg On Job WASHINGTON . . .

SALISBURY CHINA GROVE Union Bus Station—Phone 1751 Cline Hotel Girl Accuses Her Ex-Sweetie Of Stealing Wrist Watch Mocksville. — In surroundings hardly conductive to romance, the love that once flamed between Guy Beck and Miss Myrtle Griffith sputtered and went out completely in Squire T. I. Caudell’s court here. As a result, Beck faces trial at the March term of Davie superior court on charges of stealing his former sweetheart’s wristr^watch. Miss Griffith alleges that last March, when they were "keeping company”, Beck gave her a neck lace as a token of his love and that she gave him her wrist watch. All went along fine for a while; then there was a spat; then they stopped keeping company. Miss Griffith said she returned the necklace, but Beck did not re turn the watch when asked to do so. A claim and delivery proceed ing was instituted to recover the watch, which could not be found, and as a consequence a criminal ac tion was started, charging Beck with larceny. Attorney for the defendant mov ed for a dismissal on the grounds there was no evidence to show the watch was stolen, that it had been given to Beck, but Squire Caudell declined to grant the motion. He bound the defendant over under cash bond of $100. -- CP* ALL KINDS LEADING~BRANDS OF BEER BLACKWELDER'S 209 S. Main St. Near So. R. R.
