A report was submitted by the

Department of Agriculture
Pursuant to a call made in last
week's issue of The Journal by
Chancellor Robins, a good num
ber of the progressive citizens
of the county met with the Board
of Supervisors Tuesday for the
purpose of discussing the prac
ticability of establishing a de
partment of agriculture in Lee
Field AgentWilson, of the De
partment of Agriculture of the
United States government, was
present and made a practical
talk in advocacy of the establish
ment of the department in the
county. A number of our promi
nent farmers also spoke in ad
vocacy of the measure.
The Board of Supervisors, after
hearing from our citizens, voted
to establish the department and
will subscribe $1,000 toward pay
ing the salary of a commissioner.
The remaining $500 which is re
nuired to secure a comDetent
man will be paid by the United
States government. The com
missioner will be selected in time
to begin work for another year.
This step is a wise one and the
best results are sure to follow
the labors of an experienced man
among our people. We are now
confronting a grave proposition
in dealing with the boll weevil
and we must change our meth
ods if we win out in this fight.
