Farmers Here Oppose Special Session Call •11 depends to a considerable ex tent upon the prosperity of th* farmer. He did not believe, howev er, he said, that a session of legis lature would help. He pointed out that condition* vary in the various stata» and even within separate sections of this state Texas, he con tinued, could curtail the crop there and still mate more cotton than all North Carolina with every acre in cotton. He reminded, too, and this point struck, a responsive chord, that a cotton curtailment In eastern Carolina would not be ex actly the same as in this section. Tobacco, peanuts and other cash crops are grown there, he remind ed. and tf cotton were curtailed the eastern farmers could count upon an income from their other cash crops. Here without cotton the farmers would have no cash crop to speak of on which to depend “Ijiwlnr" Farmer*. Mr. Mull expressed objection in one instance because he said the farming industry Is the one thing not now regulated by law Legisla tion now telling the farmer he must, do this and he must do that would only open up a new source of leg islation to pass more laws telling the farmer what he should do on his own land, how long he should work, how much he should pay hi.; hired man and how long the hired man could work each day. A gen eral reduction plan if adopted by all the cotton growing states before any legislation was enacted could have been helpful, he said, but for each state to go off on a different plan with the provision that none of the plans would go in effect un less the states with other plans would adopt those could bring noth ing but confusion. Offers Good Advice Mr. Moore, a veteran and highly respected farmer, made one of the beat talks of all. His was a sermon on thrift and living at home. He had reared a family, got along pret ty well, he said, and today doesn’t, owe a dollar. But he had never ''shot the works’’ on cotton and had al ways managed to feed his family and We stock upon the land he worked. He pointed out the Incon sistency of growing cotton and working hard and then taking the cotton money to buy feed that have been produced where some of the cotton was grown. Good old common sense, he insisted, was better for the farmer than all leg islation, his argument being that the eensible farmer should know enough by next year to feed him self, his family and hi* livestock before putting out a stalk of cot ton. In all the talks the live-at-home idea was highly commended. It was recalled that the cotton acreage in the state, was reduced 38 per cent thie year and extra acres given to food and feed crops. Had such not been done, one speaker said, ‘ we’d j be in a beck of a fix. Let’s cut down our cotton more next year and give ' more acres to something we can eat and feed. ’ The Resolution. The resolution offered by Mr Dixon, opposing a special session, was adopted almost unanimously. It follows The farmers of Cleveland coun- j ty, in mass meeting assembled in Shelby, N. C., this September 24. j 1831. for the consideration of the! present status of the cotton indus-! try and for formulating plans for improving the farmers present de- ! plorable condition, do resolve as i follows First; That the hope of establish-! teg profitable farming by the en actment of laws is a delusion and a snare. Second That there is at present no reasonable grounds for believing that our state legislature could in-, crease the price of cotton by leg-1 tslation, curtailing production, or ! otherwise; and we oppose the call- j teg of a special session as it would be both expensive and useless. Third That the program of the fanners should be to produce on the farm all the food and feed stuffs consumed and thus “lire-at home” and after every farm need has thus been produced spend the balance of his time in growing cot ton and other money crops. By this plan North Carolina has reduc ed her cotton acreage 28 percent during the past two years, which ts both a larger reduction and a better plan than any other state can enforce by legislation “Sign. Of Time.” Dr. Well’. Theme "The Signs of the Times,” will be the subject of Dr. Zeno Wall, in the service at the First Baptist church next Sunday morning at 11 o’clock.

It Pays To Advertise Sarratt Asks For Cotton Gathering j •( OXTINUED FROM PACK OM ' and be a stabilizer Anything else will do hann. Gov. Gardner, I suggest that you again ask all governors of cotton states < governors only> to meet in, say Montgomery, in coherence Each governor . first having found that his lawmakers would back an uniform plan agreed upon by con ference of governors, otherwise conference would be useless, I further suggest that each state gov ernor have one vote for each 50,000 bales or fraction thereof as based on this year <1931) last Indicated yield on any plan. That each gov ernor agree to abide by a majority vote on any plan adopted. If a ma jority vote wanted no cotton it. 1932, abide. If a majority vote said 5,000 000 bales for the U. 8. in 1932, let that settle it. Take this year's last U. S. Indicated yield by states and proportion each state its pro duction for 1932 and each state levy a uniform tax, say 5c lb. gross lint cotton on all over proportion that might be raised. payable to the ginners at the time ginned and to be paid into the state treasury. No state would have any cost in thej operation Not a cent would go out, of any state. Say for example, Texas’ propor tional part wo* 1,500.000. The first government's indicated yield in 1932 .showed 2,000,000. This would show an excess 500,000 bales. This would make a tax for the state of Texas of 1 2-3 cent lb. on all cotton pro duced in the state of Texas in 1932. "If North Carolina's proportional part was 260,000 bales and her in dicated yield showed 600,000 bales, then the producer would have to pay 2 1-2 cent lb. to the ginners at, the time ginned and that paid into state treasury^ "If Mississippi’s proportional part was 500.000 bales and the indicated yield showed she would not produce more, site would not pay any tax. It’s simple, practical, workable, ab solutely fair, very needful and will work, without cost, "Governors Ixmg, Sterling and Blackwood you have each done fine. You have at least tried, hoping the rest would follow. I believe any thing either has done or will do would beat nothing, it was only made uniform. If at first you do not •mcoecd try again, The next trial will put it over just right. "Governors Horton and Bilbou. you should each join the ranks but with the understanding that no guns are to be turned on you in anv event. "The south should put the spurs to Gov. Sterling, the saddle horse. Possibly hold Governors Long and Blackwood back just a little, tie a rock in Gov. Bilbou's car, switch all the rest, get them to pull to gether and we will get more th° load without unloading. Call all sessions on the same day, go at it like men. It's a man's Job but it can be done. Feel them all out again governor." Si»k Brothers Lease Temple Barber Shop E.

New York, Sept. 24 The last government crop estimate was re ceived very well, 1 thank you', how arc all vour folks? The report that all the southern states had agreed to let Texas raise all of the cotton from now on was received with a pinch of salt and pepper by Wall street last Tuesday, and that ac counts for the decline of 43 points on November shorts.
