FIGHT TH[ BOLL WE[VIL
Some of the more weak kneed of
our farmers seem to be about ready
to give up the fight against the boll
weevil already. That is, they are
talking about quitting before the fight
is really begun. But I find that the
quitters are very much in the minor
ity, and that the most of our real far
mers are already fighting the gentle
men and are preparing themselves for
a real battle during the next 60 days.
It is true that we have a heavy in
festation of weevils here, but I wish
to ask what we expected when we
planted the cotton. Is there a man
but that expected a heavy emergence
this spring? I see nothing as yet to
be unduly alarmed about. The bulk
of the cotton crop has always been
made during the months of June and
July, and it is altogether possible for
us to make it during those months in
1922. That is if we stay by the ship,
but not if we give up now.
Many of our thinking men are ex
pressing the idea that the law of
averages favors a dry period in the
near future. I therefore say fight
the weevil with whatever means at
hand, so that if favorable seasons
strike us we may get the full benefit
Cultivate your cot' 'apidly as
possible--both side . cry week and

as long as it can be done without too
great expense or at the sacrifice of
cultivation. Let nothing keep your
plows from going except wet soils.
That is above all things important.
Let's keep in mind that the Lord
helps those who help themselves and
