pointed and also a com mi tee to inves
tigate the tomato situation, with a pro
viso to bring in a report at the next
meeting recomending certain things
which were vigorously discussed. The
Tomato Growers’ Association, of South
River, was well represented at the
meeting and discussed their meeting
and action taken a week ago.
Mr. Irving also spoke on the co-op
erative farmers' plants in the State of
Georgia, giving a very entertaining
description of the nature and his sus
picions. Mr. Irving was County Agent
in Georgia for two years.
It was decided to hold a meeting
twice a month for the present, namely,
I the second and fourth Mondays. This
will give ample time for the various
committees to come together and for
the other members of the club to ar
rive at various conclusions and to in
crease their membership. Farmers
cannot afford to be outside of this club
if it is possible for them to join. Mat
ters affecting the pocketbook of the
farmer will be discussed and action
taken to prevent the everlasting leak
so prevalent in the farmers’ pocket
book.
The tomato commitee consisted of
Messrs. J. O. H. Fowler, Fred W. Bau
sum, John A. Carr, G. W. Sears, George
Carter, H. C. Burner, Luther Nichols.
Farmers must not fail to hear the re
