The road from where it leaves the
nain road to Rion must be the best
in Fairfield county, since Mossy
Dale says it is. I understand the
cost of this stretch of road did not
equal the communitation tax paid
annually by residents of Rion. How
ever, it has cost one of our citizens
a good deal in addition to county
aid to build and maintain it. An
outlay which he is willing to make
to have decent roads through his
property. Wouldn't it be well for
Mossy Dale and others to do like
wise instead of waiting for the coun
ty commissioners to interced~e.

Already posters are being printed

cost more than good roads."
"Bad roads mean loss and isola
tion; good roads mean prosperity
and communication." reads one of
the slogans being gotten out by the
association. Another circular calls
attention to'the fact that while oth

enormous sums on state highwuys
South Carolina is spending practi

COTTON GROWERS REDUCE
Washington, Aug. 2.-The South
is turning its back on cotton and is
giving greater attention than ever
before to feed crops, according to a
statement oof the department of ag
riculture issued today. The state
ment is based on an officiAl compi
lation of acre4e.
The cotton producing states of
North and South Carolina, Georgia,
Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Ar..
kansas have cut their cotton 10,194,
000 acres, or 28 per cent. from last
year. Regarding this reduction, the
department expresses its amazement
"A change of 5 per cent. in the
countrywide acreage of a major crop
is unusua4 10 per cent. is rare, and
15 per cent. is unknown except under
About 60 per cent. of the reduced
acreage has been devoted to food
crops. Corn shows a gain of 4,521,
000 acres, or 13 per cent.; wheat
607,000 acres, or 10 per cent.; oats,
740,000 acres, or 13 per cent.; hay,
413,000 acres, or 5 per cent.; sor
ghum and cane, 79,000 acres, or 10
per cent.; and potatoes, 123,000 acres
or 10 per cent. The larger part of
the 4,423,000 acres unaccounted for
has gone into pasture or is left idle.
Southern states have reduced rice
acreage 450,000 acres, or 39 per
cent.; tobacco, 262,000 acres or 32
per cent. Unsatisfactory prices for
the crop of last year is held respon
Alabama shows a smaller reduc
tion of cotton acreage than any other
state but corn is planted in with
the cotton the department was able
Regarding the actual production
of cotton, the department has not
compiled a final estimate. The acre
nge reduction of 28 per cent. does
not indicate what the prediction will
be in comparison with the. produc
duced, ranging from an estimate of
20 per cent, in certain states to. 0
per cent, in others. -
There 'is an idea entert-:oined by
so-called cotton experts in congr':s
thot the cotton crop of this year
will be nearly 40 per cent. less than
that of last year. The department
does not sanction such estimate by
formal statement, if at all.
There is just one fly in the oint
ment. Despite the reduction in
acreage, there is still in cultivation
in cotton states a larger acreage
