FATE OF WEEVI
GREATEST OF ALL KNOW
Colt! Weather Kills Pest and Wan
Wet Weather Causes
The State, 18.
The climate is the greatest of a
forces for either decreasing or ii
creasing boll weevil infestation,
kills weevils when it is cold enoug
and it kills immature weevils when
is hot and dry enough. On the othc
hand, a warm, wet summer climal
makes for the greatest number an
most rapid increase 01 uun
Consider, first, the cold weatht
and its destructive influence on th
weevil in the Southeast. What ar
the probabilities of the weevil free:
ing in the lower South? Not ver
great, we must admit.
The winter fatalities to weevi
anywhere will depend quite a gre;

or few winter quarters that affoi

vide the greatest amount of \vint<
protection for weevils, whereas larg
fields and scarcity of woods afford r<
stricted winter protection.
The winter fatalities to boll weevi
will also depend to some extent o
whether the weevils are forced in1
winter quarters early by the destru

hungry, skinny weevil will succum
to even a mild winter.
Again, while a mild winter of tl
lower South may not freeze so man
weevils, neither does it kill the#ei
emies of the boll weevil, the parasit:
mites and fungi. What the w:nt<
mav not do. the parasitic enemies (
the 'boll weevil may do.
Furthermore, it may be said in fs
vor of the mild winter sections of tl
cotton belt that there are many ii
4 sect loving birds wintering in ti
woods. The woonecker tribe doub

their snug retreat under the bark ar

number of boll weevil survivors c

cold weather is not the only betweei
season force to destroy the weev
seems to be evidenced by the exper
eiice of the lower part of Geor^i
There the boll weevil is not now i
f prevalent as it is further North whei
the winters are coiuer.
In the northern part of the cotto
belt, or the upper Piedmont sectio:
the severity of the winter will doub
less always play an important pa
in boll weevil control.
In the middle section of the cottc
belt winters will play an importa:
part in boll weevil destruction, il?i
cold weather will rarelv be seve
enough to sufficiently reduce the nu
b^r of weevils so as to render it ui
necessary to make a fight on the i
As for summer weather, it is eith
for or against the weevil, dependir
on whether it is rainy or dry. Sor
have been disposed to be pessimist
over the summer rainfall of t
Southeast at the time the cotton
setting its fruit, because the dam
warm weather favors the most rap
increase of boll weevil infestation
While the rainfall does favor b(
weevil. The boll weevil can be co
trolled during the summer weath

velopment of fruit.
There is not sufficient evidence
lead any one to conclude that the a
vantages of the rainfall of the Sout
east will be wiped out by the b<
weevil can be controlled under avt
a<?e rainfall conditions so that a fi
to good crop can be made. Of tl
i there is no doubt. Even under extra|
ordinary rainy conditions such as ocI
i curred in some 'sections of the South
I in 1921, it is popssible to make a fair
I crop, but it is not probable, for the
N reason that the average cotton farmj
er is not yet willing to do what is
j necessary under such extreme condim
tions to successfully fight the boll
The belief that the Southeast will
always make a fair to good crop un'
dpr average summer climatic condi
U tions is based on the observations of
1. I what has occurred with similar weaIt
ther further West.
h j Take that part of the Mississippi
it ' delta region that according to the
?r weather reports has a summer rain;e
fall equal to that of a large portion
d of the Southeast. Cotton continues
I to be the major crop there. * Though
?r the rainfall of the two sections is
ie the same, it is believed that the rain's
fall will not handicap the cotton
farmer of the Southeast, so far as
y boll weevil control is concerned, ^as
, much as it handicaps the delta farmIs
er. There are two main reasons.
it Delta cotton is slower in setting and
v maturing fruit than Southeastern cot d
ton, which brings the period of fruitv
jng and maximum boll weevil infesia3_
tion more nearly together than will
?r be the case in the Southeast. In the
o second place, the vegetative growth
of cotton in the delta is greater and
i the boll weevil is more protected
Is from the retarding influence of the
n sun there than in the Southeast
So it would seem that if the delta of
c_ the Mississippi can grow cotton unv*.
dpr boll weevil conditions in spite of
-L - _ is
its heavy rainfall, then the rainfall
y of the Southeast ought not to knock
;(j out cotton growing.
n Referring to the extreme southern
r- part of Georgia again. According to
A government report, that region gets1
b more inches of rainfall than the
Southeast in general, yet that part
le of the state is getting along better
y than the territory further north
n- where the average rainfall is less.
ic 1 Well drained sandy soils of the
er coastal plains are not going to suf>f
fer from the increase of boll weevils
caused by rains as much of the clayey
i- or heavy soils of the Piedmont bele
cause the rotton is further advanced
l- in the coastal plains and there is less
ie of it subject to damage when the lb oil
t- weevil has come in force.
The area in the South, where the
1(1 boll weevil will have to be fought
rs hardest is the lower Piedmont where
the soils are heavy; slow in maturing
~r their cotton; where the winter is not
*e cold enough to greatly reduce the
>f weevils; where the small farm and
abundant forest is the order and
n- where the precipitation of rain is
'i- But after all is said, the summer
a. rainfall of the Southeast will conis
tinue to he an advantage in propor*e
tion to the fight that the farmer puts
j up against the boll weevil,
n : When the cotton farmer learns to
n, use calcium arsenate with success,
t- the average rainfall of the Southeast
rt will continue to be considered an ad!
vantage as compared to the drier
>n u-Asfprr of thp cotton 'belt.
nt To hold down the cotton acreage
it and to learn to fight the boll weevil
re successfully are the first obligations
m for the cotton farmer of the Southn-?
east to assume with earnest devotion,
n- his welfare demanding it.

NEWBERRY CREAMERY | IJ
To Be in Operation at an Early Date.
Experienced Creamery Man

j ; E
j The fact that Newberry county is ;r
to have a new enterprise was assured h
on last Monday afternoon when stock t'
holders cf The Newberry Creamery f,
met in the office of the Newberry
chamber of commerce and organized.
The organization of this enterprise '
is a culmination of hard faithful work !
on the part of the chamber of com- '
merce, this organization having start- a
ed agitation for the creamery during v
the month of September of last year, '
and at that time they stated they w
would not give up until the cream- v
ery was finally in operation. It is tne t
"*not give up" spirit that wins. \V
There are more than forty slock- jy
holders in the creamery organization t;
and at their meeting on Monday directors
were elected, and immediate- ^
ly after the meeting the directors >0
held a meeting and elected officers. ^
The directors elected are as follows:
Clarence T. Summer, Dr. W. G. ?v
Mayes, Dr. W. D. Serai, T. M. Neel, JT
J. T. McCraekin, Dr. P. E. Way and 'r
John H. Wicker I

The stockholders and directors feel t(
that in securing Mr. Fuller to manage
the creamery it will be a success a
from the very beginning. Mr. Fuller "
will reach Newberry on May first and
from that date on he will devote his u
entire time to the interests of the ^
Newberry creamery. It might be *(
mentioned that Mr. Fuller has sub-.0
scribed for some stock, which is an r'
assurance of the fact that he's going ^

In Operation Soon j 11
It is planned to have the creamery j
in operation just as soon as is possi-; a

immediately and just as soon as it n"
can be received and set up the plant a
j will be ready. In the meantime it is 1*

Knowledge vs. Money
Do we hold knowledge as an ideal
5 our children rather than money?
If we should consider this subject
s a direct question and ask ourselves
? we hold money as an ideal rather
lan knowledge. I fear too many of
s would with shame answer yes.
iot that we do in a direct way, hut
>o often indirectly. We encourage
ur children to see often the worldly
squirements that money controls.
I1_* f* ? i . ...L* L
nis is a iast age or cenxury m ?vnicn
ur children are living and on every
ide, in every path of life, the allighty
do'.lar is promontory.
The get-rick-quick spirit has saturted
us and is taking hold of our ehilren.
They see a chance to make
loney and ofter we mothers as well
3 fathers are too eager for them to
jave school. Just for the sake of
jeing money coming in, knowledge

We should impress upon them the
nportance of first learning, then ac- '
uiring something. The more efcient
they are in their studies the
etter prepared for life they are. The
lore they learn of our English graHilar,
mathematics, history, geograhy,
civics, etc., the more competent
alesmen, bookkeepers, bankers.
eacniirs uiey ma.ive, tiiiu even uui
armers, or planters we call them;

lodern methods are better prepared
o live and enjoy life. j
Money alone does not bring sucess.
Understanding or knowledge
ingers when money vanishes. When
iolomon was made king God asked
;hat should He give him and he relied,
wisdom or knowledge. So we
ind he not only received this but
ther blessings were given him. He
lid not say, Lord, give me riches.
Jut by his knowledge he acquired
lonor and became the wisest man in
.11 the world. He tells us in Provrbs
that wisdom's ways are ways of
pleasantness and all her paths are
icace, and it is far above the price
f rubies. It cannot <be valued with
fold. Solomon gives this advice to
isi son when he became king and as
lis ideal. "Wisdom is the principal
hing, therefore get wisdom, and with
.11 thy getting, get understanding."
?Proverbs, 4:7. Also he says,
Take hold of knowledge and keep
ier, for she is thy life. Happy is the
iut let everyone of us align ourselves
vith the chamber of commerc and
ncourage them along in their efforts

"POP" ANSON'S DEATH
Old Days in Baseball When a Clul
Was Like Crowd Mischievous
New York, April 17.?"Pop" An
son's death in Chicago nas cause*
baseball veterans here to turn bacl
the pages of time to the years whei
a major baseball club was more lik;
a crowd of mischievous boys wh<
spent their time on and off the fiel(
teasing a good natured taskmaster.
Anson's demise also brought t<
l:ght the fact that Commissione
Kennesaw Landis was preparing t<
create some position in his retinu<
for the ''daddy of /baseball," and tha
he had discussed the proposal wit!

In revealing this information Man
ager McGraw told how Anson hat
declined offers of leagues and club
to .iesignate a day to celebrate hin
and to fill his empty purse with th<
gate receipts, for many unfortunat
ventures had swallowed the funds th<
veteran accumulated in his prime
"He was too proud to accept it," Mc
Anson made his players work hard
and especially diligently durir? th<
training season, Bill Dahlen recount
ed today. After one day's hard prac
tice, Anson, a powerful and rug^ec
man, ordered his men to follow hin
on a run around the field. "He led u
around about six times until some on<
noticed a ooard off the fence,*' sail
"First a couple dropped out; th<
next time two more, until finally An
son was running all alone and non
the wiser. When he became tire<
he stopped and turned around am
came to the hole. He thought it wa
a good joke but he was mad."
"Everybody on the team.liked An
son," said Dahlen. "Maybe that'
why we teased him so much. He'<
get mad and wouldn't speak for sev
eral days, and he'd coma aroum
and invite the culprits over to hi
home for Sunday dinner, or nass i
off in some equally good way. H
didn't go around with the crowd, h
was married and had a home in Chi
cago and liked to be in.''
Anson was responsible for the en
try of Charles Murphy and Charle
P. Taft in the baseball business. Mc

academy when he quit the game An
son borrowed $40,000 from Murph;
and Taft. using his stock in the Chi
cago club as security. When Anson'
venture failed Murphy and Taf
used the $40,000 stock as an onterin;
man that findeth wisdom."
Never one time in the scripture
are we told to get money. It is no
the goal to be reached. Money doe
not always bring lasting things o
life on which our children can buiL
their future. Knowledge does giv
them refinement, culture, grace, am
other virtues which cannot be take:
As a true Southerner, of course w
do not admire Abraham Lincoln, bu
we can in some measure admit hi
thirst and zeal for knowledge as ;
noble example, how he, while yet
barefoot boy, would climb to hi
room in the attic, and by a dim can
die light read and study past mid
night. H:s determination to lean
brought him honor and success.
Money is so often acqu'-ed b;
wrong means, and often brings sham
and disgrace. Do we not want ou
children to possess that which is en
during, that which cannot -be boughl
but which they can hold long aft"-2
riches have taken their flight. It i
said that a little learning is a dan
gerous thing; but of course we wan
them to seek for the knowledge in it
truest and broadest sense, which em
braces all that is worthy and best.
Money does not always bring: hap
piness, success or honor, nro can ;
promise anything:, beyond the grave
The heart that is noole and pure, th
head that is wise and prudent hav
in store more than gold fan reach
Then shall we not show jr childrei
how much beter it is to get wisdor
than *old and to get understandinj
rathan than silver, and knowledge i

Conference at Genoa Thrown Into
Genoa, April 17 (By the associated
Pres).?The signing of a treaty between
Germany and Russia, which
nullifi.s the Brest Litovsk treaty and
reestablishes full diplomatic relations
between these two countries on a
basis of equality has caused profound
astonishment and resentment among
the allied delegations. The ministers
of the powers which convened the
conference decided at a meeting held
tonight to have a committee of experts

Unknown to Allies
It is stated that the signing of the
treaty, which took place at Rapallo
yesterday, was unknown to the allied
leaders, when Lloyd Georgs, Barthou,
Schanzer and Tfceunis met this afternoon
to consider thfc reply which the
Russians might make to the condi- .
tions imposed on that country, ibut as J
scon as the delegates learned of the M
treaty their program tfHi changed, Mj?and
the situation, which is considered A||
extremely grave, fully discussed. JB/ i
M. Barthou, head of the French
delegation, is seeking further instructions
from his government at Paris
and declared that he would not sit beside
Russians in semi-official meetings
while M. Colrat, French under secretary
of state, speaking to the correspondents,
said: "I have taken all
necessary measures to cancel the

these countries had been negotiating
for months but was not aware they

The situation is so critical that the
most prominent delegates are reserving
their opinions until after the experts

circles as an infringement of the Genoa

of war expenses, damages and
expenditures incurred through war
prisoners, and renunciation also of all
claims of German individuals or the
state itself against the Soviet republic.
Resumption of consular and diplomatic
relations is to take place immediately,
commercial relations are
