DEATH TO WEEVIL
Secretary of Agriculture Meredith
Optimistle Over Fight Against Cot.
Columbia, March 25.-An increased
inroduction of calcium arsenate will
make it possible for farmers to wage
swar against the boll weevil this year
on a greater scale, Secretary of Agri
culture Meredith told the members of
the South Carolina branch of the
American Cotton Association in an ad
dress here today. The eradication of
the peat will be hindered, however, he
said by an inadequate supply of dust
ing machines, bu't added that manufac
turers were increasing the output of
-the machines and that "in no great
while the supply will probably be suf
ficient to meet the needs."
Regarding efforts of the department
of agriculture is making to confine
the pink boll weevile to the infested
areas in Louisiana and Texas, he as
serted the department's willingness to
place a federal quarantine. "Every
body interested in cotton ought to
realize, however, he said, "that the
thing must be done now or not at
all. Extermination is possible only
at the beg-inning of infestat4on, when
the insect occupies only very restrict
ed areas. Unless the opink boll worm
is exterminated now-- and it cannot
be exterminated except by absolute
cooperation of the states concerned
it will sweep over the entdre cotton
belt and will inevitably inflict much
greater damage than the boll weevil
MAr. Meredith said the test of cal
cluln arsenate as a poison that would
eliminate the ordinary boll weevil was
tried last year on an abandoned farm.
"The department divided the field into
three strips," he said. "The unpois
oned strip on one side produced 48
pounds of cotton, the strip on the
other side produced 60 pounds and the
strip dow nthe middle where the rink
ing -water was 'poisoned, produced 480
pounds of cotton."
More than 9,000 acres of cotton land
in eastern Texas were cleared of. cot
ton plants and even the bolls and
leaves, the secretary told the mem
bers of the association, in order to
check the spread of the pink holl
worni. Since then the same tactics
were used in the Pecos valley and the
Great Bend district, and non-cotton
and regulated zones established in the
infested areas and buffer strips beyond
them and also along certain portions
of the Mexican border to prevent In
festa'tion from Mexico.
"Fumigation houses twere establish
ed at points of entry all along the
Rio Grande," Mr. Meredith said, "and
every carrier that crosses the line
from a freight car that may be fouled
with cotton to a Alexican tramp with
a possible handful of cottonseed in his
Pocket or wrapped up in his bundle,
