L/l \S * ^AlHwi.1 V Wittuiivvvvi _
tilizer associaiton, Atlanta, has written
a letter to David R. Coker, Harts-;
ville, dated July 10, and sent a copy
to The State. The letter follows. j
I have received your letter answer-'
ing mine of recent date and I am,
seizing the first opportunity to reply. J
My work has been keeping me so con- j
stantly away from the office that re-j
plies have not been as prompt -is-they
otherwise would have been.
I .find that you have taken me to
task for something which I think my,
letter did not say. Your letter says:'
"I do not agree with you at all that
? ~? * ?c< OAt1f<]lieivP tOStS'
we can nut ancui uo \.u?vit.u..v
made by educated and reliable farm-;
I submit that you have quite mis- j
read what I said: "But where proper
methods are used for getting exact
truth, the findings of farmers are just
as good as the findings of scientists.
In fact, some of our most important'
agricultural discoveries have been
made by farmers."
I also said: "The tests in progressj
this year can not be judged, we think
: until the end of the season." If your j
statement is based on this last quota- ;
tion, then I must insist that any con-:
elusive evidence of boll weevil con-^
trol must be valued in cotton, cotton
at harvest time?no other measuring
rod will do.
I accept the evidence you present,
< ? x-v !
but it was not necessary xor me uv.
accept it in order to be convinced
that poisorfed moiasses would" kill
weevils. I was convinced of that by
abundant evidence last year.
My indictment of poisoned molasses
as a means of killing weevils is: \
(1) It is neither as effective nor as
inexpensive as calcium arsenate dust
on young cotton, which is the time;
when the effectiveness of poisoned
molasses is greatest.
A pound of calcium arsenate dust
will successfully treat an acre when
cotton is small. This year a pound of
a i rr
calcium arsenate costs ten iv xo
cents, and it costs less to apply dust
than it costs to apply molasses.
(2) As the cotton grows larger the
?' effectiveness of poisoned molasses decreases
and becomes negligible, while
the effectiveness of the dust poison
does not decrease.
. (3) Calcium arsenate dust is not
only more effective than poisoned
molasses in the early period, but be- f'
cause of its greater effectiveness
throughout the period of cotton
growth, it holds down infestation
more successfully and renders the
danger less at the migrating period.
(4) Poisoned molasses on cotton is
not a means of protection at migrating
time. Only calcium arsenate dust
on the cotton affords protection.

honey bees and other insects
that love sweets, whose greatest service
to the farmer is in fertilizing
the flowers of crops, thereby increasing
(6) Poisoned sweets, because of
their sweetness, are eaten greedily by
animals. Cattle have been killed by
thpm MiiIps that havo
brushed poisoned sweers o*f of the
cotton on to their legs and licked the
sweet material off are reporter! tc
have been killed.
The danger of poisoned sweets to
animnls is not great and 1 do not
rank that objection as reparian; as
the other objections cited.
I want to call your attention to
the fact that it is no: easy to judge
the effectiveness of poi3on yppa?u
early in the season. It is t^ien :">ic.t
the old weevils are .ly!p..r jdIT rapidly/
On account of lateness of cotton this
year, a greater percentage of weevils
died a natural death before
squares formed than ordinarily.
All that survived until they c >u!d
puncture a square died shortly thereafter.
Then there was a period when
we had practically 210 old weeviis and
unless their eggs had hatched out into
new enes, you could not expect to
find hardly any weevi'.s m the- cotton.
It is, oi course, ine w?e\?Ks ami c
now hatching out that threaten t!:c
"It is because many wear's die bofore
they can find squares to puncture
that we advocate only one application
of poison in killing old weevils.
That application should be
made jus: before the ry.irars get n g

It seems ofi'' e evit?'?r:t that your cotton

a survey of all poisoned cotton under |
