CUT-OVER PINE LIDS PLAN FOR FORMATION OF ORGANIZATION TO COLONIZE At the annual meeting of the Missis sippi Pine Association to be held in Hattiesburg Tuesday, April 11, defi nite action will be taken upon the plan of Its secretary, Mr. James A. Kirby, for the utilization of the cut-over pine lands in the State. The plan contem plates either the organization of the bureau within the association or a merging of yellow pine manufacturers and the owner of cut-over lands to undertake the general advertising, sale and colonization of such lands in South Mississippi. There are in the State 2,656,672 acres of cut-over timber land where reforesting is not under way. Upon some of the land demon stration has been made of the valu able qualities of the soil for agricul tural purposes, plan looks to the establishment under the auspices of the proposed bureau of a small experimental farm upon the land of each owner co-operating in the movement, the erection upon it of a cottage and necessary out-houses, the whole after improvement to be sold at the very minimum price and upon terms of easy payment, more care be ing taken in the selection of a buyer than in the price obtained, to the end that the experimental farms may be advertisements of the possibilities of the soil. ed of of Secretary Kirby's Outline Of Plan. An outline of Mr. Kirby's plan is set forth in a paper he will read before the association. Kirby's plan follow: Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Mississippi Pine Association: At a meting of your board of direc tors held December 13, at which time I had the honor to be chosen secretary of your association, It was proposed that I submit for your consideration at your next annual meeting the general outline of a plan looking to the organ ization of a bureau within the associa tion, or if thought more desirable, the merging of this association into an or ganization of both yellow pine manu facturers and the owners of cut-over pine lands; the purpose being in eith er event to undertake the general ad vertising, sale and colonization of the cut-over pine lands of South Missis sippi, and the raising of the necessary funds for this purpose. Your board of directors agreed to consider such prop osition as I might submit. The necessity for such an organiza tion, and the benefits to accrue to the owners of cut-over lands therefrom seem to me too obvious to require ar gument or elucidation on my part. It also appears to me unnecessary at this time to enter into an extended discus sion of the wonderful possibilities awaiting the development of these cut over lands in South Mississippi, in the attraction of desirable Immigration and the building up of this section. These are matters which have been frequently discussed and written upon at length, and to which you have doubtless given much thought. The rapid awakening of the South industrially, and the general trend of immigration from the older and more thickly settled portions of the United States can have but one ultimate re sult—the eventual agricultural devel opment of all the vast cut-over timber lands of this section. The movement has already set in, and is increasing at a constant accelerated ratio from month to month. We see evidence of it on all sides. Louisiana and Texas are bringing settlers into those states by hundreds, while Florida has for several years kept itself prominent in the public eye by persistently advertis ing its resources, and is now realizing in the sale of lands some of the bene fits of this widespread publicity. Extracts from Mr. ! Realizing the necessity for putting this movement into concrete shape where something definite can be ac complished, I shall submit herewith a general plan of the organiaztion pro posed, and the scope of work which it occurs to me should be undertaken by It. First of all a movement of this kind should have a central organization—a focal point—from which the efforts of all interested In the movement may be directed. Such a bureau or organiza tion should have as Its head Intelligent and energetic workers who will devote their entire time and ability to the prosecution of a systematic campaign of publicity. I propose, therefore, with your finan cial assistance and co-operation to es tablish for you a bureau which will undertake to present the advantages of these cut-over lands to desirable home-seekers. It will be my purpose to get before the public in states from which we may hope to attract lmml and soil, and agricultural possibilities of these lands. You gentlemen are fa miliar with the advantages of these lands. I will endeavor to acquaint prospective buyers with the knowledge you possess. This knowledge can best be impart ed through the columns of wisely lected periodicals, daily and weekly newspapers, agricultural and other trade publications; by the distribution of carefully prepared and well illus trated printed matter; by the exhibi tion at state and county fairs of the widely diversified products of this soil; by the intelligent presentation before agricultural and kindred associations of the advantages which this section offers to the home-seeker and by the maintenance at Hattiesburg of an at tractive and permanent exhibit of the products of this section. It will also j be the purpose of this bureau to have sufficient force to take in charge any interested parties who may have been attracted by advertising and corre- | spondence to investigate these lands and show them over the various lauds which are for sale by those co-operat ing in this movement. In short, gen tlemen, it will be the purpose of this bureau to keep constantly and perslst ly at work to promote the sale and set tlement of these cut-over lands, and to in every legitimate way attract immi gration to the South Mississippi pine region. se Must Have Steady Income. To accomplish the work as outlined above will require a steady income and one sufficient to meet the require ments of a tentative estimate, herein after submitted for the organization and prosecution of the first year's ! work of the bureau. The future rev enue of this bureau will depend large ly upon the results accomplished by it during the first year of its existence. I Continued on Page Four.l ' u -e*r A J.
