My Dear Sir:
As you arc no doubt aware, the Mississippi Live Stock and Dairy Association originated
the movement which resulted in the establishment of the Live Stock Sanitary Board and the
inauguration of the Tick Eradication work in this State. During the first two years of the
existence of the Sanitary Board its affairs were directed bv Prof. Archibald Smith, Secretary
of this Association and Professor of Animal Husbandry at the A. & M. College, and conse
quently its work was aboolutely free from political influences.
At the last session of the Legislature, the Governor had himself and his Attorney Gen
eral made members of the Live Stock Sanitary Board. On May 4th, the Trustees of the A.
&M. College removed Prof. Smith from the chair of Animal Husbandry at the College,
which also removed him from the Livestock Sanitary Board.
These actions, as can and and will be proved, were for the purpose of condoling the
patronage of the Live Stock Sanitary Board and prostituting its funds to political purposes.
I regard the Tick Eradication work in this State of such vital importance, and the throwing
of the work of the Sanitary Board into the hands of (lie politicians and the removal of Prof
Smith, such a serious loss to the Livestock interests of the state, that, after consulting with
the Directors of our Association, I have called a meeting of the members of the Mississippi
Live Stock and Dairy Association, and all others interested, at the Court House in Stark
ville, at 2 P. M. Saturday, May 28th.
If the work of Tick Eradication is to be saved from the control of the politicians who
know nothing of its needs, and the valuable services of Prof. Smith retained for the Live
stock interests of the state, it is important that there be a large attendance at this meeting,
and you are urged to come and to induce as many others to do so as possible.
These matters are of the most vital importance to the live stock interests of the state,
and it is (he duty of every live stock man in the state to attend this meeting.
President Live stock & Dairy Ass’n.
