control, cutrting of sweet potatoes and
other such Vital topies on which the
success of tIid farme r anLI all others
in this agricultiural state hinge.
The Advertiser, as it has so often
said, does not claim for itself any su
herior kniowled~ge of farinlg, buti it
has conisidlerable conid~ence in the
knowledge possessedl by -the ex perts
hired by thle sta te and national gov

it is a foregone concluslon that the
farmer, who is not by trainintg and
stutdy, a scientist cainnot cope with
problemis of his own, whIiIch arie piure
13y sclintific, withlou t the hlp of oth
er's. 'fame farmers have been wont
to scoff at thd advice handed out by the
t ralined people whom they su p::or't by
their taxes, ibut ob~servation of the
progress made in the past few years
discloses that, after all, the successful
ones come arouind after a time and
are found piracticing the very methods
which they have belittled.
The (boll weevil probletm, wiiichi is
of vital interest to uts all, is a scien
tiic !troblemn and one that is to be
solved now. We believe that a sute
cessful solutlion of It will rest upon
a unified adoption of thle scientifle
mnethods reencmendpd biy our1 experts.
We urge a careful study of these
.methods as they are recommended and
that they be adopted at their face
value without being discounted be
eause .they are scientficl.
