Washington, Dee. Feb. 27.-It is
growing into a settled belief among
those who watch and study the mysti
fying moves of big politics that the
President's recent utterances on the
bonus constitute a reflection of his
desire to defeat the proposition and
to let the blame rest on the Farm
Bloc, whicn he looks upon as being
theevil genius of his adminictratioti.
It is believed that he would like to
place these men in a hole from which
they might neve, be able to extricate
themselves. , When he gave it out that
he did not favor bonus legislation un
less the money could be raised by a
sales tax, he knew that the Farm
Bloc is on record as strongly opposed
to such a tax. Thus Harding "pass
es the buck" to those gentlemen and
at the same time throws a sop to his
.Wall Street friendn who want a sples
tax to eventually take the place of
taxes and surtaxes on incomes. In
the same breath he tells the soldier
he would like to see him get a bonus
-but throws an obstacle in the way.
It is more than suspected that the
President would like to see a lot of
members of his own party fall outside
the breastworks in the coming elec
tion fight. There are so many Re
publicans in the House and Senate
that he can't handle them, and if any
fall he would prefer that they be
members of the Farm Bloc in both
House and Senate. Of course it is
well known that the Democrats are
getting together a most militant or
ganization for the purpose of causing
an utter disappearance of this un
wieldy condition. One of the big Re
publicans told a newspaper man the
other day that the leaders of his
party were hopeful that the majority
of 169 in the House could be reduced
to 30 or 40 without starting an aval
anche that would wipe out the major
ity completely. They would like to
have a Congress that could be con
trolled by a few leaders, but it is a
dangerous time to try the tactics
thought of. As far as impartial ob
servers can see at this time, the
slaughter among Republicans of both
House and Senate will be great, but
that the Farm Bloc will suffer the
least. The Democrats say the Re
publicans are in for the worst trim
ming they have had in 30 years.
While addressing the League of
Republican clubs in Washington last
Saturday the President made a dam
aging display of his Toryism. Only
those who read widely and keep close
observation are aware of the extent
of Harding's reactionary tendencies.
Some who read this Will recall that he
was one of the few public men who
condoned the action of a little group
in the Baltimore convention of 1912
who withheld the nomination from
Champ Clark after he had received a
majority of votes and after he had
showvn in the primaries that he was
the choice of the voters. Harding

Students of politics understand that
an infallible test of a public man's
attitude on the great principles of
trovernment is found in the nominat

who believe in progressive democracy
condemnl the old convention system
with all its manipulation, trickery

1us stand with those who still believe
in the bossim of a few leaders, who
lictate policies an(d candidates. In

THE BOLL WEEVIL
Clemson College, Feb. 28.-More
than twenty years ago some farmers
in Texas imbued with the spirit of
investigation, bored holes in blocks
of ice and therein sealed the boll
weevil for twenty-four hours, to find
that after that period the pest was
still alive and healthy. It reuired
some explanation to show that this
experiment had little or no signifi
cance in its application to boll wee
vil control, but as the moved
eastward somebody who had not
heard , of these experiments, and
stumbling on' the same idea, would
repeat it, calling again for further
explanation, says Prof. A. F. Conradi,
entomologist. This winter a number
of our citizens made similar experi
ments which brought up the discus
sion in various quatters as to clima
tic effect on the boll weevil. Some
cane to the conclusion that the wee
vil could not be killed by cold, while
others became as firmly convinced
thai climatic differences were of no
importance in boll weevil control.
While such conclusions still find
fertile ground in newly infested
territory like South Carolina, the ex
perienced farmer unddr boll weevil
conditions merely grins at them. He
has learned in the hard school of ex
perience the important effects of cli
matic differences between one place
and another, as wel las from season
to season. He knows that the right
kind of cold weather reduces the
number of weevils; he knows that
the difficulty in making the cotton
Crop increases with excessive rain
fall in the growing season and gener
illy decreases with a reasonable a
mount of hot and dry weather dur
ing the growing season.
The annual rainfall of South Caro
lina is equal to that of Texas during
ts worts weevil years and it is well
'or every farmer to mark this and
remember it regardless of the var
ouis personal opinlions expressed on
~he subject. The rainfall in Texas
luring the important cotton-growing
weason frequently is not more than
the rainfall in some sections of the
south Carolina cotton belt in a single
nonuth, which makes the weevil con
rol a problem of mutch greater diffi
tulty in South Carolina than in areas
>f less rainfall. South Carolina
enrely lhas the drty hot wveather that

ogists of the college.
A recent well-known example is
the chestnut canker, which was intro.
duced from eastern Asia. As a re.
sult of its ravages our native chestnut
appear to be doomed. It is rapidly
spreading, destroying the chestnuts
as it goes and no practical method
of control has been found.
The white pine blistbr rust is an.
other recent importation. It is now
so firmly established that no hope
of eradicating it is entertained. It
is destructive . to white pine treci
wherever currant or gooseberry
bushes exist to harbor the fungus.
Citrus canker is a third important
impbrted disease. Where it is native
-eastern Asia-it is comparatively
unimportant. In Florida and Alaba
ma, however, it threatened for a
time to destroy the entire citrus in
dustry. It was only by the most
vigorous and thorugh eradication
measures that it was conquered, and
even yet a future outbreak would
not be at all surprising.
Other important . plant diseases
which have recently been introduced
into the United States are blue mold
of tobacco, which was destructive in
parts of Florida last year; peanut
rust, a serious disease now present
in Florida; potato wart, present in
Pennsylvania and one or two neigh
boring states; take-all, flag smut,
and downy mildew of wheat; and
sugar cane mosaic, which is becom
ing serious along the Gulf Coast
None of these diseases is known to
be present in South Carolina as yet,
but they may occur at any time.
. Any strange disease on these or
any other plants should be reported
pIomptly, with specimens, to the
county agent or the Botany Division

sential. A short delay may be
enough to enable a new disease to get
such a foothold that it can not be dis
