IN AND ABOUT THE CITY
N® PROFIT INf COTTON
NOW, SAYS MR. NEW'EI A. |
Declares That Statement to tiic Es-!
feet that Farmers Make Money on j
Nineteen Cent Cotton Is Wrong.
R. E. Newejl, of Number 10
Township, has a crow to pick with
The Times and The Tribuue. ;
Iu a etory recently published in
these iiapers, the assertiiou wa»
made that with cotton at 19 1-2
cents per pound, the farmers were
still making money. That, says Mr.
Newell, is all wrong. The farmers are
not making money when they sell at
that figure. They are buying bread ■
and e'othes by selling something
else l —unless they are trying to
starve to death.
When he read about making
money with ootton what it is, he was
■forced *o laugh, he declares, and
made the assertion that either John
Sherrill was hard up for something
to print or else somebody who didn't
know what they were talking about
had been in the newspaper office
To substantiate his statement that |
money is not to be made at 19 1-2
cents, lie presents figures which he
has obtained from his own exper
ience this year.
His crop, he siys, is coneeeded to
be one of the besi in the county, so
there could be no objection to taking
it as an example.
From the thirty acres which lie
had in cotton this year, he has gin
ned 14 bales. At 19 1-2 cents per
pound, allowing 500 pounds to the
bale, the total realized from the
crop would be $1405.
Not to take up the expenses of
the crop. Iu the first place (here is
spent $222 on fertilizer, which Mr.
Newell, for the sake of having
round number, puts ou his expense
account at S2OO.
After the S2OO for fertilizer. . the
next item is the cost of labor, which
is the largesa single expense. Saying
that four laborers could be employed
at $25 a month (which they can't,
according to Mr. Newells), for the
five months necessary for working
the crop, there would be SSOO to pay
Then there mut be hoeing, twice
during the season, at $1.50 per day.
Supposing that a laborer could work
an acre a day. then the total for the
season’s hoeing would amount to
The seed for the thirty acres cost
In addition to this, there is the
charge fer picking cotton, which Mr. 1
Newell makes at SI.OO per hundred,
although the second picking would
cost at least $1.25 per hundred. This
comes up to S7O.
One-third of the crop belongs to
the land, in other words, it is inter
est on the land. Thar is the amount,
says Mr. Newell, would have to be
given if the land were being rented.
It is only a return for investment.
To be subtracted from the total
received from the cotton are the fol ; >

Interest on laud $488.33 i
Totai -Hspursements $1378.33 j
Subtracting this from the total re- j
eeived for the cotton, Mr. Newell is j
rewarded $80.07 for bis season's t
work. This, he concludes, is hardly j
what would be called making money, j

THE CONCORD/DAILY TRIBUNE
Iy BASKETEERS TO FLAY
I T\V® GAMES THIS WEEK
! Davidson College and High Point Y
Are to Be Met in Contests Away
Concord's Y basketeers are making
ready to put in a busy week. By
way of competition they are taking on
the Davidscu Sol lege five on Tues
day and the High Point Y quint on.
Incidentally, they hope to raise
their batting average as far as vic
tories age concerned and win at least
_one of these two contests. The pres
ent standing of the local basketeers
stands at exactly zero, having played
two games and lost both of them.
Hie Tuesday game comes unexpect
edly. Both teams will be given a
bit of practice, which probably both
need. Although two games arb
scheduled wltfi the Wildcats, one in
January and one in February, Coach
Y’ounger called over long distance
Saturday and inquired if it would not
i be possible for the locals to come
' over and give his bunch a chance to
i see what they could do before the
After a due amount of consulta

team, it was decided that it would be
well to accommodate the coach and
at the same time get a much needed
practice on a big floor like David
It is conceded in the city that the
local hoopsters are in need of prac
tice. They stayted the season play
ing games with no practice. Against
Salisbury, the Concord team was prac
tically lost. The Itowau cage art
ists were seemingly in mid-season
form and they, ran wild. Against
Charlotte things were much better
The Mecklenburg team could not
pass as easily around Cpncord as had
Salisbury and despite tv.e fact that
the score was almost the same, the
locals put up a much better tight.
With a few more games against
strong beams, it is believed that Con
cord will be able to gft into good
Davidson started their season's

-Coach Younger has been trying to
whip his stlbs into varsity form. The
game this week will give hint an
indication ns to what to exiiect from
his men when they start their regular
schedule after Christmas.
Little is known of High Point.
This is the first year they have had
| a team and except for the fact that'
they were beaten by Salisbury as bad
a* was Concord, no comparative
scores are available. The gufile is
to be played in High Point.
A blow was dealt to Concord's
hopes when it was learned that Cole,
who had been a shilling light in guard
position, was forced to leave the city.
He was among the men who Were re
leased by' the Southern- Power Com
pany until after Christmas. His loss
will be keenly felt. It i.* • hoped
. that he will be able to return after

the fasmnation of this atmosphere, are
the rich mellow voices of the native
