TO HELP CONTROL WEEVILS.
Clemon College, Sept. 19.-The
earlier the cotton stalks are des
troyed the fewer the boll weevils
that will survive the winter and con
sequently the smaller the damage to
the next crop, says Professor A. F.
Coffradi, entomologist, who advises
that as far as possible the stalks be
destroyed at least two weeks before
the first killing frost, for the early
fall destruction of cotton stalks is
practically the most important sin
gle step in any sy stem of fighting the
bo:l weevils. In other words, clean
ing of the fields, destroying the
stalks, and the planting of cover
crops constitute most powerful wea
pons for weevil fighting now in the
hands of the farmers, who by effi
cient fall farm management can dic
tate to a great extent how many
weevils shall pass the winter on his
farm. This fall cleaning program is
also of the greatest benefit general
y in destroying -the winter homes
and the winter food plants of other
injurious pests of the farm.
Boll weevils multiply in cotton un
til frost kills it. Many thousands
f them may occur in each acre of
otton. Weevils hibernate, that is
hey pass the winter only in the
all grown state. Hibernation us
ially begins with the coming of the
irst killing frost. The weevils hi
>ernate principally in cotton fields,,
d standing stalks make for them
plendid winter homes. The most
avorable condition for sueessful
iibernation is found in fields where
otton stalks, grass, weeds, dead
eaves, etc., are left during the win
er. There are little prospects for
ccessful cotton growing under such
In some sections the stalks are
prooted, piled and burned. fThis

Some- of the many advantages se
:ured from cleaning the fields and
lestroying the stalks are: (1) A
great many full grown weevils are

:he stalks are destroyed two to
*hree weeks before the first frost,
md these will not have sufficient
trength to pass the winter success
ully. The removal of the stalks al
o facilitates fall plowing and the
lianting of cover crops.
Where the stalks are chopped and
plowed under, the land should be
isked in order to help prevent wee
rils from escaping.
WARNING TO SWEET POTATO
Clemson College, Sept. 19.--Sweet
potatoes should be dug before frost

rice horticulturists, who warn that
the sweet potato is a tropical plahit
Pnd that both vines and roots may
e damaged by temperature above
the frost point.
The prevalent idea that the vines
must be frosted before the potatoes
are dug is wrong and the practice
is dangerous. It is unsafe to wait
later than the dates below to gather
potatoes. Many growers who wait
ed until frost last year lost their
entire crop, regardless of the kind

The apprximate earliest date of
the first killing frost in the Pied
mont section is October 23; in the
Sandhill section November 1. and in
the Coastal section November 9.
Of the two evils, immaturity and
frost injury, the former is least in

Vines should not be removed ex
yept from potatoes to be dug the
same day. Experiments and obscr
rations indicate that potatoes so
treated are hard to cure. However,
if frost kills the vines before pota
toes can be duig, the main stem
hould be clipped at base of plant
before thawing takes place.
The house should be filled within
w or three days, and curing should
begin on first day, depending or
