VOL. 41. |BOLL WEEVILS WORK IN WEI WEATHER-SO MUST THE COTTON PLANTER r If you expect to whip the boll weevil in a fair fight, you have got 'to show us much energy us he does which means that though the oper ation may be both difficult and un .pleasant, poisoning must be done even when the plants are wet aud khe ground muddy, so says the ■lnlted (States Department of Agri culture with regard to poisoning the weevil with calcium arsenate. The Department has found that, during the critical stage, the poisoning Fshould bed me at Intervals of about uour days. Two or three applications, pnade In good weather, may have 'got the weevils under controll. Then there comes a rainy spell and the farmer lets the time fur poisoning ■pass while he waits for fair weather. * Hut that is exactly the time when [the weevil is busiest. The numbers fare likely to increase so rapidly that he control already gained is lust, pa that event, the weevil infHcts Bibout as much damage as If no pols ktnlug bad been done and the farmer ■osses. in addition, what he has .spent In poisoning operations. The “only way to prevent that sort of result Is to let wet weather interfere as little as possible with poisoning. *Mtlck to the schedule, the department says.regardless of weather condition. ■ The Department realises, of course rthat poisoning cannot be done in pouring rain but the farmer, the specialists urge, should take ad take advantage of the earliest opportunity to get back Into the ; field after the rain, that be should make every effort to get the cotton again dusted regularly, even though flair weather does not seem certain. He can afford, they say, to pnt on r poison even in unsettled weather. It may be washed off again shortly but, on the other band, the weather, even when it looks most threatening, kuay stay fair long enough to allow (weevil control to operate. Every ■farmer, it Is pointed out, must ex pect to lose some poison by rain Pout the operation is sufficiently profitable to Justify It.

L WHITFIELD The above is the latest photograph of H. L. Whitfield, who has an nounced his candidacy for governor after being solicited by many friends. His case Is more one of the office seeking the man than we have had In Mississippi for many years. Clean morally and politically he has served Mississippi for many years as teacher, State Supt. of Education and Presi dent of the Mississippi State College for Women. The woman's vote Is yet an unknown quantity in Mississippi, but there is every reason to believe he will swing it almost solid. A noufactionalist, a disciplinarian, a farmer and educator he measurers up to the highest political standards. He will attend the Neshoba County Fair In August, and speak to Ne shoba County folks, among whom he has many friends, upon Mississippi problems as he sees them.
