COTTON AND GRAIN EXHIBITED
AT L. S. U.
A joint exhibit of cotton and grain
recently was made and explained be
fore the students a: the Louisiana
State University and rr"emnces of the
extension force, by G. S. Melor,
investigator in cotton marketing, and
K. B. Seeds, specialist in grain
marketing, United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. The object of
this display was to show some of the
different grades of cotton grown In
the U. S., their comparative values,
the best methods of marketing and
grading; and to exhibit the Federal
standards of grain and the methods
of grading under those standards
for the purpose of demonstrating
how certain changes in production
methods will give a product that will
receive a better grade and hence com
mand a better price.
In the cotton section were samples
of grades for the American upland
types, the Sea Island types and the
Egyptian type. Pictures showing the
different steps in the spinning pro
cess that cotton goes through for the
purpose of discovering the relation
between foreign matter content and
the real product, methods of baling
cotton and the plans and specifica
tions for warehouses were explained
by Mr. Meloy.
Types of various grains, including
rice, showing some factors affecting
grades, a panel of the various stages
in the marketing of grain, the grad
ing of grain from the sampling of
car in the railroad yard to the final
analysis in the laboratory and the
milling and banking values of various
* wheats which influence the grade, and
the apparatus used in inspecting the
grain were presented by Mr. Seeds.
Many students availed themselves
of this opportunity of getting some
very helpful suggestions and infor
iation that will supplement their col
lege work. The exhibits were ship
ped from Baton Rouge to Nashville,
Tennessee, where they will be dis
played for the students at Pabody
PRUNE TOMATOES ONCE, AD
The mosiae disease oi tomatoes is
one that is becoming serious in parts
of Lousiana. This disease causes the
leaves to turn light green in color
and also retards their development.
In extreme cases, the leaves retain
as narrow strings. Mosiac cuts down
the yield of the plants to a eonsider
!able extent If the plants become
infected while young, no more than
fifty per cent of a crop can be ex
pected. The moseac disease is very
infectious and is readily spread from
plant to plant. A little juice from a
diseased plant placed within the tis
sues of a healthy plant will produce
infection in a few days' time.
Moslac is spread in the field to
a large extent by pruning, according
to C. W. Edgerton, plant petholo
gist, Experiment Stations, Louisiana
J State University. "The juice from
the diseased plants is carried to the
healthy ones either on the fingers
or on the pruning knife," he says.
"It is not uncommon to see a heavy
mosia infection develop a few days
after the plants are pruned. On this
account, it is not desirable to prune
the plants more than is necessary.
Pruning hastens the development of
the fruit and a certain amount of it
irs neceemary, but results are liable to
feollow too much pruning. One good
pruning usually sufficieant At
that time all of the shoots up to the
jfirst flower cluster can be removed
and that is usually sfficent for
L S. U. SPECIALIST IS HIGHLY
C. H. Staples, dairy specialist in

vision, has been chosen as one of
the nine vice-presidents at large from
the United States by members of the
World's Dairy Congress Association,
who met with Secretary of Agricnl
tlre Wallace recently, to adopt a
working plan for the laternational

add these offiser to their oganisa
The Congrese will be held just pre
ceding and at the same place of the
National Dairy Show of 1923. The
meeting place has not yet been e
lected and a sharp rivalry is develop

the chance of entertaining the 500,

timated, will spend a fortnight list

It is unspeakable the way taxation
bears down on some of our commun.
Houma has just voted 13 to one,
and $32,902.46 of assessed value to
$12,600 in favor of a bond issue and
a special tax with which to finance
the construction of "the most modern
light and water filtration plan in the
state."-N. O. Item.
Opelousas. La., March 30, 1922.
To the Editor of the Item:
If you continue to advertise me on
your editorial page, you will have me
succeed Governor Parker, as many of
my devoted friends and admirers in
this parish desire. That would be field
day for the taxpayers of this state.
No more salaries raised; no more un
necessary appropriations; taxes as
sessed for state and local subdivisions
at fifty per cent of the actual value
of the property assessed, when pros
perity would return to the agrieul
tural masses, now overwhelmed with
gloonr and distress. I would arm my
self with a battle ax and guillotine
every increase in the present salaries:
veto every increased appropriation
not necessary to meet the state's obli
gations; and turn into the treasury an
amount of the severance tax suffici
ent to warrant a fifty per cent cut in
matter of valuation for state taxation.
This would meet with universal ap
proval from the people, who earn
their bread by the sweat of their
brow, who are now on their knees
with hands uplifted for the relief
which must come.
I have too much sense oetpropriety
to but into other people's afirs. If
the people of Hoomq want lIM and
water, by all means let them have it.
Light is a necessity, and water is
about the only thing they can now
drink to excess---by all means let
them have the pure stuff.
But to be serious, Mr. Editor, while
I started the movement for tax re
duction on Christmas eve, in the year
1921, the people of Terrebonne were
quick to jump in the band wagon and
call upon their neighbors for a re
duction of assessments, which mesas
a reduction of taxation. They want
relief and w nt it now. They charge
amemmeats beyond the actual value
of their property. That is legaised
We In St. Landp and in Ouaehita,
and East Peliciana, Acadia, Evange
line and indeed in a majority of the
parishes want relief against the pres
ent valuation of our propetles and
we want this-quick.
When I first proposed to defer this
movement to 1926, a North Loulsiana
Senator, or it may be two of them,
wrote me the patient was in articulo,
mortis (at the point of death) hence
it was I devised immediate relief. ,
I am going to speak at Lafayette,
Monday night the 3rd inst. Why not
send a shorthand reporter to take
down what I say? You an stand the
expense. Advertise the fact you are
going to reproduce what I say, and
if you do not seleneeh estra papers
to pay the reporter's bill I'll supple
ment the difference.
A fair field and no favors and the
taxpayers are going to vin. On with
the dance. Thank you for paging me.
"Here I am; here I stay."
