PLAN FIGHT ON
PINK 1OLL WORM
Measures to Protect Cotton Industry
Against. Pest to bie Discussed.
Washington, May 15.-Measu res for
protecting the cotton Industry against
the 1pink boll worm will be discussed
at a conference here tolnorrow between
the department of ogriculture and rep
resentatives of the cotton growing
States. Failure o.f Texas to probide
for adequate (luarantine and control
work, the department said, necessi
tated the formulation of a now policy
to prevent the spread of the pest.
The pink boll worm was said by C.
1. Marlatt, chairman of the federal
horticultural board, to be present in
Texas, Ioulsiana and New Mexico.
"The menace of the pink boll worm to
the cotton crop of the coun ltry is n1ow
fully recognized," lie added lin his sum
m11ary of tile situation. Based tpoll
losses occasioned by it in receit. ye(as'
ii l0gypt, lrazil, Ilawaii and \lexico,
lie continued, the department estimated
its Spread through the cot I on belt
would mean an ann iiual loss of from
twenty to forty per cent of the cotton
helt crop, 'or a money loss of several
hilindreds million dollars annu11ally."
The federal government took prompt
action to beat .back the pink boll worm
when it first a peared in Texas in 1917
from .'l exico, tile departmeit. said, ad
ding that iwith the complete co-opera
tion of the states invaded "there seem
ed to be a fair chance of eradication
of the pest."
Mr. Marlatt said the "failure of
Texas to provide for such (IIarainille
and contiol Work as will in the judg
ment of the xixperts of tiIs department
and of several states he adequate to
hold tle pest within its present limits
in that state, and the abandonment as
a general policy of the only nwvthoul
enforcement of non--cotton zones which
Would possibly lead to the extermina
tion of the pest in the infested areas,
necessitates a careful consideration of
the -whole fut!'re pink boll worimI work
in. the United ;tates, and Ilore partI
cttlarly the quarantine 01 Cont rol ac
tion which should be takena Witih re
spect to the Insect toL prevent its spread
