SATURDAY, Jan. 4, 1912. but
Cotton Seed Supply Short. Ca
The letter of-Prof. W. R. Dod
son and the remarks made by Mr.
Frank T. GIuilbeau, which we pub. De
lish below, lead us to believe that this
the amount of cotton seed on which
we were figuring to supply the t,
planters in the inundated sections, thi
will not be as large as we were ex
pecting, and in order not to be -
short of *ee* and disappointed at ma
the time of planting, we believe thi
the suggestion made by Mr. Goil
bean is timely and should be act- Vo
ed upon without delay. thi
We should be assured that the
planters will be supplied with the
seed they need. visi
We cannot expect that the mdi- Sot
vidual planter can procure his
seed, the seed must be bought in mai
car load lots and be on band to All
supply the many small planters
when planting time comes.
The communications follow : waI

Mr. Frank T. Guilbenu,
St. Martiuville, La. Ne
My dear Mr. Guilbeau: on
I have your letter of the 13tb in
regard to the distribution of cot- o
ton-seed and beg to say that the day
Relief Committee has on hand
5,000 bushels of cottonseed that -
were purohased last spring, but Tut
owing to delay in delivery they wet
were not received until we thought
it was too late to plant. These are
Stmpkins Seed from North Caro- so
We are depending very largely
upon the Demoustratiouu Agents of
the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture to Set
get information regarding the peo- Be
pie who are actually in need of -a
seed. It is the desire of the com
mattee to have this seed reach the
people who are most destitute, and
we are glad to receive the
assistauce of any prominent men
in bringig about this result.
I am sending your letter with a litt
copy of my reply to Mr. G. Thi- of :
bodeaux of Breaux Bridge, the Mr
Demonstration Agent of that pa
rish. When we get in reports
s.howing about the number of pro e
pie in the different parishes that da
are absolutely iu neeod of assist
auce, we can then tell you what I
seed can be apportioned to each Bit
Yours very respectfully, the
W. R. DODSoN,
Dean and Director.
In handing you above letter. I au
wish to state that I do so to pre-. cia
vent a misunderstanding as to the
quantity of cotton seed we can ex.
pect from this state for this Pa. sar
rish. The imprusion prevaile Os
that a sufficient quantity will be Mi
received to provide for the farm
era east of Bayou Techs. Five of
thousand busbhels, or a little over ,a
eighty two tons will not gno far dr
when distributed throughout the oil
If the merchants of the town de
aire to see that the planters are *t
turnished seed, it would be advis. K.
able to meet, organize and devise ga
ways and means. The time is
ripe for action. Delay woold be Eu
very dangerous, as seed might not Mi
be found to purchase. Ib
Yours troly, Be
