THIRTY-SIXTH YEAR. NORTH PLATTE, NEB., FEBRUARY 27, 1920. No. 14 1 amount hi IB r A HI 1 1 .SUUAH COMPANY WILL DEVELOP NEW TEHKrTOKY To offset a possibility that the boot growers between North Platte -and Hcrshoy may not accept any proposi tion that may bo made by tho Ameri can Boot Sugar Company,, that com pany Jb developing nov torrltory ac cording to a stntcmont mado yc'storday by John Bryan, field agent for tho company. According to Mr. Bryan tho field to bo developed will bo eastern Lincoln, Dawson and Buffalo counties, In which territory he is now at work making contracts for the present year. Asked whether beets could bo success fully grown on unirrlgated land, Mr. Bryan stated that good results had been attained around Grand Island on dry land, and also in sections of Buf falo county. Tho fnct that tho American Com pany is developing new territory can bo taken as evidence that the demands made by tho growers comprising tho Lincoln and Keith counties' associa tion will not be granted. To tho out sider it would seem that tho sliding scalo demanded by tho beet growers is a fair proposition ; that tho higher tho price of BUgar tho more money tho factory can afford to pay for beets and it is on this basis that tho farmers ask the factprles to do business with them. In growing beets tho farmer needs a good margin of profltto offset tho con tingencies in tho way of beet worms, hail and other drawbacks which are possibilities during tho grqwing sea son. In somo Instances last year the Meet worms wore responsible for a thirty to fifty por cent reduction In tho yield, and growers thus affected lost money on the crop. ::o:: . day from L03 Angeles where ho spent I several weeks.
