that when the senate came to final
action on the afsenic paragraph he
would' go into -detail as to whom the
tariff would benefit and upon whom it
would rest. He characterized the pro

favoritism for one combination and
one set of men," and estimated that it
would cost the cotton producers alone
$18,000,000 a year.

by-product which the smelters were
required by law to contain because the
damage it had done to vegetation near

WEEVIL INFESTATION INCREAS
Clemson College, July24. The first
generation of weevils has been active
in the central and southern parts 0,
the state for the last ten days to two
weeks and it is rapidly appearing in
the Piedmont section. Infestation in
the southern section of the state and
the Pee Dee section has been com
paratively high in the last ten days,
while the farmers in the central and
northern parts of the state will ob
serve a rapid increase in square in
festation during the next week or ten
days. The appearance of weevils at
this time and the increase in the'num
ber of punctured squares is due to
natural developments, and this was
to be expected."
The above statement was made at
the weekly boll weevil conference
held here today, which wag attended
by Directors W. W. Long and H. W.
Barre, President W. M. Riggs, Prof.
A. F. Conradi and his field entomolo
gists, and other specialists, and at
which there were reports made from
the .county agents and specialists as
to weevil conditions in the various
counties. Below are the details of the
facts and suggestions brought out at
Weather conditions in most sec
tions of the state are favorable to
weevil development, and the rains are
unfavorable to weevil control. Over
practically the entire state cotton is
still continuing to fruit, but in those
sections where infestation runs from
40 to'60 percent, and with showery
weather, fruiting may not be expect
ed to continue.
Attention is particularly directed
to the fact that we have arrived at
the critical period in the production
of -cotton in 1922 when the utmost
a t on is necessary to keep the
. 4 ting and to reduce the weevil
iin as much as possible. Far
me o are poisoning are urged to
follow the directions laid down for this
Iwork with great care, and to make
the different poison applications at
the intervals recommended just asj
nearly as possible. weather permitt
Attention is directed to the fact
that because of the showery and moist
weather conditions in any sections of
the state, the characteristic flaring
open and yellowing of the punctured
squares is not so noticeable as it is
in dry weather, and this fact is de
ceiving many farmers as to the abun
lance of the weevil, for under such
conditions the punctured squares re
main green and keep their normal
shape for a much longer period than
under dry weather conditions.
At this time there are still sent in
as boll weevils a number of insects
which however are other kinds. Also,
many squares are sent in with holes
bored into them, either by the boll
worms or the cotton square borer.
Furthermore, there is considerable
shedding on many farms, due appar
ently in some cases to excessive wet
weather, while in other instances it
is attributed to a lack of fertilizing
elements. In some sections the rains
have retarde cultivation. An exam
ination of many of these fallen forms
shows that upwaLrds of 40 to 50 per
cent were squares and the balance
young bells, and in some instances the
great majority of the squares and
blls showed no weevil injury.
