Senators Attack Report on
? / Cotton.
Washington, Dec. 15.-Senators
Smith and Dial have proceeded in the
senate against the recent report of
the department of agriculture on the
cotton crop of 1921. The report pre
dicted a production of approximately
2,000,000 bales in excess of the pro
duction forecast two months ago.
Senator Smith introduced a resolu
tion which passed rsquiring the di
rector of the census' to ascertain
from ginners for the period from
August 1 to December 1 ,the number

Senator Dial proceeded against the
alleged inaccuracy of the department
report, deplored the fact that nobody
paid serious. attention to it, and in
sisted that the department needed re
organizing and "overhauling."
The recent ginners' report caused
a terrific slump in the cotton and the
belief of Southern senators is that
it is not accurate.
Tries Toil Plan to Market
"The- Warrant Export company,
having a capital of $1,000,000 with
headquarters in Birmingham, is ; en
gaged in exporting cotton to central
Europe on the 'tol' plan," said,J. J.
Fretwell, a leading citizen of Ander
son, in Columbia yesterday .
"The toll plan," said Mr. Fretwell
in response to nn inquiry, "means
simply this: I ship 500 bales of cot
ton, the company of Birmingham
handling the transaction for me and
charging me commissions for the
service, standing back of me, to
Czecho-Slovakia, where it is spun
and woven, or both, by mills in that
country. Mr. Freeman, the represen
tative of the export company in Eu
rope, selects the mills and; the manu
facturing is done under his direc
tion, that is, as to the kinds of yaifo
and cloth manufactured. I have not'
'parted with the title of my property.
The mills charge for the service* of
manufacturing, which . is equivalent
to taking toll for .what they do. Mr.
Freeman markets the -goods Sn Lon
don or Manchester. He does not han
dh the money. When the sale of the
goods is made they are n?id'for to
me through a check good for .Ameri
can dollars. That is the simple pro
Mr. Fretwell is 'now, through ihe
Birmingham company, seeding a con
siderable consignment of cotton' to
Czecho-Slovakia to be manufactured,
the goods to be sold for him. He safd
yesterday that the company has (ar
rangements by which 200,000 bales
of "cotton are to be taken by Czecho
slovakia. It has: an agency in Los
Angeles and considerable quantifies
of cotton raised in the Imperial Val
ley is being shipped by it. In some
cases in this far Western 'region cot
ton is hauled by drays 150 mibas.
.Mr. Fretwell's information is that
in this'way producers1 are'realizing
from 25 cents net a pound for their
short staple cotton when it is spun
into yarn up to 27 cents of 29%
cents when it is made into cloth. .
Of conditions in Anderson, Mr.
Fretwell spoke cheerfully, althoagh
he said that the crop would not be
nearly so large this year as it was in
1920. The boll weevil caused consid
erable damage. Numbers of farmers
are, of course, heavily in debt. On
account of the higher prices last
spring for food and supplies, the cost
of producing the crop this year was
much higher than it was before the
world war-the labor had to live. He
spoke of negroes coming from the
Southern part of Georgia and some
of the counties of South Carolina into
Anderson county seeking employ
ment, saying that they were glad; to
get work for shelter enough to keep,
them and their families ,going.-The ,
San Jose Scale.
I Clemson College, Dec. 17.-The
sprays used for controlling San Jose
scale on fruit and other trees can not
be used on trees in foliage, but must
be used during the fall and winter
months when the trees are leafless
and dormant, accoding to Prof. A.
F. Conradi, entomologist, who urges
owners of orchards to use ; limesul
phur to fight the scale now' for the
sake of fruit next season. The lime- !
sulphur spray may be prepared at
home, either by the use of steam, or
with fire, using an iron kettl,e. Direc
tions for making are 'given-in Ex-]
. p?riment Station Circular, 30 which !
may be obtained upon application.
The liquid lime-sulphur may be pur
chased also in some of the local mar
kets with directions how to mix with
water to make the proper spray.
There are on ?the market several
brands of dry lime-sulphur which are
mixed with water at the rate of fif
teen pounds of the'powder to fifty
gallons of water. In buying limesul
phur compounds it is necessary to
obtain the mas fresh as possible and
u^e theni^as soon as possible. The!
drums in which the material is re
ceived should not be open unneces
sarily to expose the material to the
atmosphere. This material * handles
quite conveniently, but has the dis
advantage of being more expensive.
There are several brands of oil
used for controlling scalp, and full
information regarding these may be
obtained upon request. When using
oil, it is urged that ? simple separa
tion test be made before spraying the
trees, to make certain that the oil
does not separate.
Before the spraying, the tree
should be properly pruned, with spe
cial attention-to twigs and branches
shot-holel by the twig bark beetle,
and the prunings should not be left
in the orchard-1 but should be burned
immediately. Not only is pruning a
necessity in fruit growing, but pruned
trees can be sprayed more thorough
ly in less time and with less material.
