COUNTY AGENT GIVES
BOLL WEEVIL FACTS
Advises AII Farmers to Give Attention j
Tarboro, X. F., March I.—Zeno.
Moore, county a sent for Edgecombe
county, thinks that some additional
‘'bare-bone facts” should be given the.
state. His facts do not have to do
witlf* State finances directly, but in
directly they do, for be is looking at
the financial condition of that farmer •
who plants all available land to cotton
this year. In a recent letter to offi
cials of the Agricultural Extension
Service, he points out that some vital
facts are neither being given attention
nor prominent parts in the drama now
being enacted called "Fighting the Cot
ton Boil Weevil.” He says further
that some of his facts will perhaps
run counter so public tast£ and others
of them are r.ot in accord with what
some people think are best for the
personal interest of tlie_ North Caro
lina farmer. The extension service
Is striving for a reduction in cotton
acreage per farm this year and for a
”liye-at-home” - .program of farming
that will make the 'North Carolina
farmers less dependent in case, the
weevil does destroy bis cotton crop..
* lmt some others, finds Mr. Moore, are
preaching that cotton growing should
be continued as formely and so lie
points out the following addressed par
ticularly to Edgecombe comity farm
"Fact No. 1 is that of all the people
in the world, all who are not making
cotton want you to keep on making
cotton. They all argue, in substance,
that since ‘we' need the cotton, you
should continue to make codon/ Not
many of them are interested in vouf
crop making a profit. Or, if so.
rather advisedly. That is. interested
to get it as cheaply us they can. This
might account fdr. some solicitude
from outside sources.
“Home of • the things recommended
might help you to make a little more
cotton. It is for you to decide
svef her or not they will enable you to
make any more profit.
"Fact No. 2 is that of those valiant
fellows who are just itching for a
light with the pest, so. anxious that
they are pawing up. dirt and burying
their horns in the ditch bank,-will not
hear of a red deed cotton acreage, or
substitute crops or of other lines of
farming. Such a course, if carried
tp its logical conclusion, would mean
plant more than the scoundrel can
eat. Feed him to death.
“Fa/ct No. T* is. The IMI weevil
makes only one demand. Given that
condition, he will let you name every
other condition and will light you and
win. That is. the battle must be
staged in a cotton field. That is all
he has ever demanded. And on that
lone condition he ffiis always won.
