Attorney for Plaintiff,
Is Rice Planting Well Under Way?
Our esteemed contemporary, the
Jennings Times-Record, published over
on the eastern border of the parish
seems to be rushing the season just a
little bit like we used to do when we
were kids and went swimming on Eas
ter or came out with our straw hats
Christmas. In a number of recent
issues of that worthy but misguided
purveyer of news has appeared state
ments similiarhto the following clipped
from a recen issue, "The first day of
February finds rice planting well under
way throughout the Jennings-Elton.
Roanoke-Welsh.Lake Arthur sectibn."
Now this is to say the least slightly
misleading, as there has in all proba.
bility not been a grain of rice planted
in this entire district even at this time,
and it is hardly likely that there will be
any effort made to begin seediog, unless
It be in very exceptional cases, before
the First of March. A little closer
touch with the worthy farmers of one's
:ommunity keeps a person better m.in- a
!ormed, and usually prevents, at least a
'epetition of such misleading informa.
