AURICULTURlAL EXPERTS IOLD
CONFERENCE AT CALL OF GOV
HNINOR. OUTLINE 'PROGIRAM FORl
WAGI'Nf FIGHT. SAY THAT COT
TON CAN BE PRODUCED PROFIT
ABLY IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
The State, Nov. 19.
That cotton cap be and is being
grown profitpbly in South Carolina
under -boll weevil conditions and that
the're is no sound reason for the farm
cr;j of the state to throw up their
hands and declare that there is no
hope were two statements made at the
conference held at the call of Gover
nor Harvey at the State 'House yester
(lay for the purpose of giving consid
oration to the conditions facing the
cotton 'producers lit this common
wealth. The conference did not con
'fine itself to merely uttering eneour
aging words,,-ftt outlined a definite
and clear cut program for the cotton
growers, which it held, if foll'owed,
will prove profitable. The recommen
dations adopted are given in full
eleswhere.
Over- and over again was the advice
.'Destroy your old' cotton stalks tiW1
moment the crop is harvest'ed,"
sounded ; so that recommendation
ver-y 1properly heads the list of those
adopted. Another important - point
stressed time and again by the speak
era were thorough preparation, stuil
cient fertilization, and the use of good
*
varieties of seed. "Get your crop)
* gi ~ *
made before you gige tho weevil p
cla-tnce to get in his work," 'was the
*
sentiment. The need of haste too was
-itressed. ,
Conference Well Attended
The conference was opened -by Gov
ornor 'Harvey, who in a few words,.
toid of the bearing the control of the
boll we6vil has on the prosperity of
South' Carolina, and said unity of ac
tion -anong the cottou.growers was a
prime necessity of combatting the
weevil. lie read letters from Senator
N B. 'Dial, Bright, Williamson, Niels
Christonsen, J. 0. Sheppard and J. S.
Wannamaker in which the #writers ex
pressed their interest in the confer
ence .and commented on the cotton
situatdon.
A list of those present was then
compiled, and A. F. Lever was elected
chairman and Henry Johnson of Aiken
was elected secretary.
-Mr. I-ever, on takifig the chair, said
that Governor ;Harvey was due a vote
of thanks for calling thb conference
a
in tliat the control of the weevil was
vitally connected with the progress of
the state.
'Wope of u's should got the Idea that

and successfully grown in all of the
states which have been visited by tile
weevil and the farmers of South
Carolina are. able to meet the condi
tions which the farmers of other
states 'havo raced. The growing or cot
ton, however, will be more expensive
and will ibe more difficult under weevil
conditions than brotofore.
"Two things will -happen as a result
of the invasion of the poest. Absentee

Plans for a community .hall for Lau
rens were discussed at a joint meet
Ing of the directors of the Laurens
Business 1League and officers of tle

The iproposal for a community iqll
name from the Civic 'League. Mfs.
Bennett, in proposing the plan to the
Business 'League and asking for its
mupport in the profect, said that vdri
:>us civic organizations felt the need
yf a common meeting place and a place
hvhere entertainments of various kind
lnight be held, IShe said that the Civic
[acague really advocated a large con
iention hall yiwhere large gatherings
3ould be held and conventions enter
ained, but that they would co-operate
with the Bnsiness League in a less
Lretentious plan if it was thought
)est at this time.
After the matter was thoroughly dis
[ussed, a motion was passed that vom
nittees from the Business 'League and
he Civic League -be appointed to thor
ughly study .the question and make a
'eport to- Pres. Wright, of the Busi
less League, who would then lay the
natter before the full meeting of the
3usiness League. The general opin
on of the meeting appeared to -be that
t D~ould be best at present to secure

Lble rental and furnish this tempor
trily for .the meeting of the Business
aeggue and for any other uses for
vhilch it might be found convenient.
LAURENS DEFEATS UNION
oe4l High School Takes in Union
High School by Score of 6 to 0.
The game between Union Ii and
anurens 1-I here Friday afternoon was
ided, insofar as scoring was c9n
erned, in the first quarter when Tid
veil, fast half-back of the local team,
cooped uip a fumble on Laurens thir
y-yard line and raced down the field
or a touch-down. The .placement kick
ailed and nq more scoring was done.
iaurens came near scoring again in
lie third quarter when Wright ran
orty Yards to the tell yard line after
eceiving a punt 'from the Union toe
nan. The Union lads held tight and
,aurens was only able to make six
ards in the four downs. When the
all went over, Union punted out of
anger and further 'chances for scor
ug by Jaurens ended there.
In the last quarter, the Union lads
legan a sensational ac'lal .attack that
'nly a fumble and the time-keopers'
vatches saved from a touch-down.
tealizing towards the last that they
ould xnot win through the line, the
Jnion -lads began to forward pass with
oiling effect. The locals appeared un
'qual to the task of intercepting the
iasses and the 'ball appeared to land
n Union hands at will.- In the list
lye minutes of play, the Union team
arried the bail almost the ,1engta ot
lhe field, but when within ten yards of
he goal the whistle blow: and tile game

nation In war and give a guaranty of
commerrial independence in time of
peace.
Personally addressing a joint ses

ecutive declared an actual monetary
savLing to the government would re
stilt from tile proposed law Ie chal
lenged every insinuation of favored
interests and the enriching of the Ewe
cial fewi at the expense of the public
treasury. The legislation, lie assert
ed, automatically guarded against en

"If success attends, as we hope it
will," Ie added, "the government out

portunity to carn remains, and Ameri

The P'resident said concert about. the

Ing that the maritime nations of the
world wero "in Complete accord with
the opposition ihere to the pending

A commercial eminence on the seas

-If governient aid is a fair term to
