FORMER HAYWOOD MAN
IS TEXAS LEGISLATOR
According to Dr. J. C. Davis, of
Rule, Texas, who is a member of the
Legislature of that state, "Beer joints
are bad enough and dance halls are
bad enough, but a beer joint combined
with a dance hall is just too bad."
Holding this view Dr. Davis has joined
in the sponsorship of a bill to divorce
beer dispensaries from dance halls in
the state of Texas.
Dr. Davis, who is a former citizen
of Haywood county, is the brother of
Dr. F. M. Davis, of Canton, and an
uncle of Grover C. Davis, of Waynes

For Our Farmers
(By J. II. Dean, Agricliltiiial Author-
ity ) '
'There.-' has been more rainfall in
Tennessee and adjoining states this
spring than any spring for thirty
four .years, This has di layed plant
ing of all crops throughout the south
Due tn this unusual "wet .spell'
farmers are behind iii their work and
many of t hem will not plant the crops
that they h id .intended planting. In
our -opinion this will result in ;i dis
tressing shortage ill produce through
out. the ve.'ir Covet rinn-nl wni-L- :onl
industrial activity will' be greatly in-,"1' ,n(' g'"'Cal assembly to ipSllll) per
creased this year-' over last vcar and! :''-ssl"11: At l"eent the pay of mem-
theie will be a stronger ilemand for
all farm products, aiid especially veg
etables. ' :;"
We must, remember that our South
ern tioiglibors have not been itble to
jda'tn either henc
e can " grow
vegettibles tor the 'market as '-.early a -.'.bey
can. In fact many of -them will
!!'' grow 'their usual quantity of veg
: I'tables ('of this section,- hence it . i c;n
that the market would lie great iy id
favor of the local . producers. '-.-;..
-The truth of the matter is tlie
drougth :ind (lust storhis of the West
and the Usual rains of -. the ' .Southeast
have placed farmers in this ,-ecl.iiin in
a. favoi-ed jiosit ion. The wet weaWu'r
only -means that -all crops will be
three or -four. 'weeks later than usual.
The subsoils of our Section, however,
are thoroughly saturated with : water
and there is ample reserve moisture to
carry the crop through. The .-springs
ate bold, the creeks are up, the weIs
and citerns and ponds are full.. The
crops ol. t His section will stand three
or. lour weeks later planting -and -
probably do as well as usual. It is'
no time to get panicky and abandon -'
crops or pans oi crops, we are sure
our farmers will use their usual good,
common sense and take the fullest
advantage of this opportuity.
Every farmer who has contemplat
ed raising any kind of vegetables this
spring should be more concerned and
determined to grow them now more
than ever. If he has certain lands
set aside for oats or corn, he should
by all means prepare that land as best
possible and make every effort to
grow a fine crop. If he contemplated
growing a patch, or field, of tobacco
he should resolve to make: a better
crop than he. ever grew before..
Due to the government's expansion
of the currency; the government's ex
pm liture of billions of dollars; to
the drougth and raging dust storms of
the West and the excessive rains of
the Southeast, prices are bound to be
high. The man who has something
to sell will be in luck.
