THE FARMER "IN THE SPOTS"
i W. A. Watson, a farmer of Deep Gap, N. C.,
writes in the Winston-Salem Journal that he
wants crop control abolished. He says the farm
! ers are "in a spot."
Does Mr. Watson refer to the 20 "spots" or the j
' 50 "spots" or the 100 "spots" now so promiscuous
' ly handled by the grinning tobacco growers?
Mr. Watson goes on to castigate the govern -
| ment bureaucrats for their pernicious control
Does Mr. Watson not know that these control
regulations were imposed by the farmers them
. selves by crushing majorities?
Does the correspondent not know that without
i control, wild over-production would make the
cultivation of tobacco unprofitable again?
Or perhaps he refers to the "ceiling."
And is he not aware that without a ceiling,
prices exacted by tobacco, meat, shoes, rents,
butter, plow points, gun cartridges, clothing,
sugar, coffee, gasoline, etc., would produce an
inflation that would quickly become a national;
With tobacco averaging 43 cents, can't farmer.-.
;be sati-fkd in a small way, especially when tho
world is staggering with unprecedented terror;
land stiffen m v and .'Vnt'i?
! ' i
1 Mr. Watson closes with this:
"There is a remedy, and I do hope the poor far
jmer will use the hatchet and throw those in pow
er out who make such laws against the welfare
of the farmers."
If Mr. Watson believes the people have so little
business sense as to go back to the conditions of
the early '3o's when there was no crop control,
and when Will George marketed his crop at SI.OO
a barn (picture of this dollar now framed and
on exhibition), we fear his hopes will be dashed
to the earth. |
History of the Old
Court House Bell
About 87 years ago Forsyth >
county was cut off from Stokes,
and the county seat of Stokes was
removed from Germanton to Dan
bury. The court house that was
buiit here was then graced by the
old court house bell taken from
j the Germanton building. |
| This bell saw service on the old
court house at Danbury for about
1 50 years, when the present court!
j house in Danbury was erected. A
new and larger bell was then in
' stalled, and the old bell was sold
to Robt. P. McAnally and remov- \
ed to" his farm in eastern Stokes, j
Later Mr. McAnally bought a i
farm near Richmond, Va. He car
iried the old bell with him and
kept it on his Virginia plantation
until his death some 25 years ago. I
It was then purchased by C. R.
jWall of Beaver Island, Stokes
i county, a brother-in-law of Mr.
J McAnally, who brought it back to
Stokes and installed it on a
church near his home, where it is
Mr. Wall, who was in Danbury
Monday, told the Reporter the
history of this old bell, which is J
very interesting. No one knows
how old the bell was when first
used on the old Germanton court
| house. ■>
