South Carolina Senator Is Pressing
Campaign. Discusses Ills Plan.
'Waahinrgton, July 9.?Several In
formal conferences were held today by
Senator Smith of South Carolina with
other . Southern legislators und cotton
men In regard to the South Carolina
senator's proposal for the reelection of
a barrier In Alabama against the
threatened invasion of the boll weevil
Into the Saouth Atlantic cotton States.
The subject of the conference was
what steps the federal government
should be asked to take nnd what the
States and cotton growers themselves
might be called upon to undertake in
the light. All the plans discussed
were aimed at an absolute abandon
ment of the growing of cotton In a 50
mlle belt across Alabama from north
to south with a view of preventing the
boll weevil migrating east of this strip.
A plan was under consideration to
gain the cooperation of thread lace
and mercerized goods manufacturers
in the movement. This suggestion was
based upon the fact that these articles
are manufactured from sea island cot
ton, most of which is grown ulong the
coast of South Carolina, Georgia and
Florida. It is said that the sea island
cotton seed comes almost exclusively
R'om South Carolina. Should the boll
?weevil onico get Into the sea island
cotton fields, it Is said, it could scarce
ly be eradicated because of the semi
tropical temperature there.
Another suggestion under consid
eration was to raise a fund among cot
ton growers of the Southeastern States
to defray part of the expenses of es
tablishing this barrier. It was esti
mated that growers in the Southwest
ern State expend annually as much as
$5 an acre in fighting the weevil. A
contribution of this amount from
Eastern planters for ono year, It was
urged, would go a long way toward
establishing the barrier, with State
and federal cooperation.
