Living-Making Versus Money
A Firm Basis. N
There is a great deal of oratory
going on just now in agriculture but
agriculture can not live off of ora
tory. There sems to be, too, a gener
al belief that all that our present agri
culture needs is a fuller credit sys
tem, but neither oratory nor the f?ll
est of credits could put of themselves
a boll weevil farm on a firm basis. A
farm, of course, like a building must
have a base of something different
from sand and mud. Its weight must
rest upon something that is substan
Where Responsibility Rests.
Under boll weevil conditions the
responsibility of the landowner, the
banker and the advancement' man
have largely increased in the ?outh.
Upon them more than upon any other
men does the burden of putting agri
culture on a sound basis rest. As to
the farmer himself, it must be quite
plain that it is no longer possible for
him to go to the bank and buy his
way out of his present troubles. In
the old days this was largely possible
but today the emphasis is on working
out of our troubles rather than buy
ing our way out.
To Begin With.
A f?rm in the old days with ?its
vast system of credits and its one
crop stood upon a very unstable ba
sis but the boll weevil has forced us
into putting our farms on a firmer
basis. The real facts are that credit,
seemingly, is not indicated for the
farm that does not carry certain fac
tors which make for agricultural sta
bility. I refer to those great agricul
tural necessities-the cow, the hog,
and the hen, and I repeat again that
credit is not indicated for that farm
on which does not obtain fthe follow
ing outfit, viz., one cow, one sow,
two dozen hens and a rooster or two.
If the farmer has not got this equip
ment let him borrow or rent it and
pay rent in the young or progeny of
Without these animals there can be
no living* making on the farm. In
these days of weevil there can not be
money-making without first of all this
living making status. In other words,
money making today in agriculture
presupposes first a living making. -
A Great Indictment.
The low level of our southern ag
riculture is plainly shown by the fact
that about sixty per cent or nearly
two thirds of its farmers carry neith
er the cow, the hog, nor the hen. A
goodly proportion of our farm chil
dren never drink milk and eat only
bought butter and then only occasion
ally. A child without milk is apt to
be a deficient child and this deficiency
is a parental responsibility.
Going Still Further.
It would be far better if our land
lords should require besides the fore
going certain other requisites on their
farms. For cattle growing there must
be a green crop all the year. In other
words, broadcast ten pounds of rape
now on one acre of land and in the
summer time wh?n this dies out plant
in two foot rows five pounds of green
grazing the year around and this
acre sho,uld be kept up year after
year. And on this one horse farm, too,
should be an acre in pecans, and two
crops that should always be found
there are Otootan soy beans, a fine
stemmed hay, and Biloxi soy beans
for a rough forage. Why would not a
farm carrying all of the foregoing
factors be a safe farm for credit for
the compelling reason that all money
crops on it would be made practically
free of cost?-N. L. Willett in Au
Handy Electric Milkers.
Great strides are being made in the
developments of milking machines
and with the improvements that have
been made no farmer who has any re
gard for economical production of
milk can afford to be without a ma
The most recent development is
one in which all of the operating
mechanism, including the motor and
air pump, is mounted on the milk
pail itself. The operating mechanism
consists of a light, powerful electric
motpr, a small but very efficient
vacuum pump and the pulsator, all
being enclosed in an aluminum cover.
All that is said to be required is to
attach the cups to the teats, fasten
the plug to a light socket and the
milker is ready for work. No belts or
gears are used and there is nothing to
wash but the cups, tubes and pails,
and as the whole operating mechan
ism comes off with the pail cover,
this is a simple thing to do. With the
motor running, the cups may be plac
ed in a bucket of water and easily
cleaned by the water which is quickly
drawn through them.-Business Farm

Picture Umpire Will Have Veto
Power on Films.
Los Angeles, Feb. 9.-Arrange
ments have been made for a review
of each picture that is prepared. The
report of this review will go to Mr.
Hays and his decision will be final.
If he orders the picture changed it
will be changed. If he orders it
"scrapped" it will be discarded with
We felt that in selecting Mr. Hays
for a position of this kind we had
done wisely when we picked a m?n
who has had no previous connection
with motion pictures. He cannot be
prejudiced and he will favor no one.
We know that his usefulness in the
post to which he has been chosen will
depend wholly upon his complete .in
dependence of action.
He was not chosen by me,, nor by
Mr. Zukor; he does not represent Mrr
Fox nor Mr. Goldwyn; he is not the
friend of theJJniversal nor of Famous
Players-Lasky. He stands for the
whole motion picture industry, and
his job is to view the interests of the
entire industry as against any indi
vidual producer or collection of pro
For instance, let us suppose that
some film concern turns out a picture
that is below moral tone and that Mr.
Hay.s decides this must not be ex
hibited. It is very natural that this
concern might, if this decision were
rendered by a collection of its busi
ness rivals, feel that discrimination
was being practiced against it. But
when the picture is "scrapped" by or
rsr of a man who represents the in
I ierests of the entire industry this
same feeling can not exist. Added to
this is the fact that the associated
producers also have agreed that when
ever a picture is rejected for cause
they will repay to the producer
whose film is denied presentation a
sum of money representing a fourth
of what he expended in preparing
Mr. Hays will be in close touch at
all times with the exhibitor-and the
exhibitor is the individual who knows
best just what the people wish to see.
Some one producer might think that
a certain type of picture would bring
him rich returns. And his belief
might be true so far as he individual
ly was concerned. Bul; the exhibitor
to whom the film was extended for
presentation would know that the
showing of such a picture would be
bad business. It might increase at
tendance of a certain class for one
week, but it would lower the tone, of
the theatre and would make for heavy
losses in the long run. Mr. Hayes will
get the views of exhibitors and will
take them intimately into account
when he is perfecting the close-up or
ganization which we expect will re
sult from his taking hold.
"To Keep Confidence."
Mr. Hays will be entrusted with
the job of keeping the public confi
dence-which is something that is
basic to the success of the entire mo
tion picture producing structure.
Very much has been said on the
subject of "sex" in pictures. But
there exists a' confusion in the minds
of many regarding the definition of
A great many think that the word
sex is synonymous with salaciousness.
This is not true. $
The sex picture will continue to
lead in presentation on the screen.
But the salacious picture will not be

self and everything that goes on upon
it has sex as a foundation. B|Ut it is
not necessary to treat the appeal of
sex in a vulgar or obscene way. And
it will be one of the principal parts
of Mr. Hays' duties to see that this is
Gets No Percentage.
Let me add that Mr. Hays will re
ceive a straight salary. He will not
obtain a percentage of anything.
Therefore he will be in a position to
take direct action without in any way
interfering with his income, so he
cannot be accused of being merce
While I was the individual produ

me than he will Selznick, Zukor, Rob

Metro, Goldwyn, Fox, First National,
United Artists or any of the other
production concerns which have band
ed together to place him in the po
sition which he will occupy.
We were first attracted to Mr.
Hays by the wonderful ability for or
ganization which he demonstrated
in handling the republican national
campaign, and we feel that we have
the right man in the right place.
