To Cotton Farmers We are printing elsewhere in this issue a leaflet embodying some vital statistics compiled by the Cotton Acreage Committee, to which -we invite the attention of every merchant and cotton plant er In this section. All of the essential facts of the situation are brought out in this -leaflet and the subject is very conserva tively treated. ' The cottdrt plantera are at the parting of the ways. One road full Acreage Pleads to positive and hopeless disaster; the other road small acreage-leads ,to quick recovery and financial sol vency. The future' is in the ing of the "planters themselves. Under present corjditions of sup- ply and consumption, the carry over on August 1st next may be five million bales, and cannot be less than three million bales. No authority estimates the consump tion of American cotton at more than twelve million bales maxi mum for the next crop year, and the only safe course to pursue is to reduce acreage to the possi bility of only eight million bales for the current year. Last year's acreage turns out to hve been around thirty million acres, and except for the weevil devastation and adverse weather conditions, a crop of twelve million bales would have been possible, in which event cotton would have sold for 10c a lb. and the South would have been inevitably bank rupt. The time has come to turn a deaf ear to sentimentalists. The South does not raise cotton for humanitarian purposes, not with the object of clothing Chinese. Japanese, or what-not, but pri marily for the purpose of mak ing a living; and there is no more reason why the South should produce a surplus of cotton than that a cotton mill should produce a surplus of goods or a bank of issue keep out a redundant cur rency, in tne case oi tne cotton mill or the bank, these can cur tail at will, but in the case of the cotton planter, he has only one time within the year at which to curtail, which is the planting season. A man has no more right to commit economic than physical suicide. The cotton planters know that a small crop has a greater monetary value than a large crop, and with this fact established and recognized, fail ure to reduce acreage to the point of the world's need for cot ton would be nothing short of economic suicide. Our slogan should be eight million bales of cotton for the next crop. With such a crop the world will have a sufficenry of cotton, and this is the extent of the planters' obligation to hum anitarian consideration. The South is on trial, its intelligence is being weighed in the balance. Morning Star. North Carolina Blessed Agriculturally Raleigh, N. C. -North Caro lina was particularly blessed in an agricultural way duting the year 1921, in comparison with others. The rank of fourth in value of all farm crops exclusive of fruits and truck is quite com mendable as is that of fifth place in all crops. Those outranking this state had considerably larg er total cultivated areas, but the per acre value of such crops was higher than any other important state, reports the Cooperative Crop Reporting Service of the State and Federal Departments of Agriculture. Our corn, potatoes, hay, tobac co, cotton and fruit brought good prices or any way, better than most states. In comparison with others, it is found that the value of the North Carolina crops is almost two thirds of the value of the Texas crops, and she and crop but crop ha3 but one-fourth the improved farm area. Illinois had but 11 per cent more in value of crops, and yet had over three times the farm area. We had more than the value of Iowa's crops only 29 per cent of her acreage. Our state had three pec cent less of total values on one-third less produc ing area than New York. Even a comparison with California shows us with 75 per cent of her crop value from a farmed area less than two-thirds as much, while the '22 official crop basis gives us a larger total value. North Carolina is thus shown up in her true light, for in no other way is the comparison equitable: Still another interest ing comparison is by individual crops. Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and most other middle western states are more of the one crop type than is this state. Last year, corn occupied one third of our cultivated area, and cotton only one-fifth, while small grains, hays, seed legumes, and improved pastures each had about ten per cent. The muchly discussed tobacco crop occupies only six per cent of the cultivated area. In total corn value, Iowa and Illinois lead with North Carolina ranking lucky thirteen. ' Perhaps that is why the Tar Heel state came through the last crop year with first rank in the value of sweet patatoes, peanuts, soy beans, and tobacco. Our nearest competitors are Alabama in po tatoes; Virginia in peanuts and soy beans; with Kentucky sec ond in tobacco. In Hay value, New York and Wisconsin lead with 23 others being ahead of us. We hold fourth rank in sor ghum cane and fifth in state cot ton values. The national average of De cember pricej paid to farmers was: corn 42.3 cents, wheat cents, irish potatoes $1.11, and swejt potatoes 88 cents. Loose hay averaged $12.13 per ton, cot ton 16.2 cents, peanuts 4 ct;nts per pound and sorghum syrup 63 cents per gallon for all states. The North Carolina prices were corn 78 cents, wheat $1.44, irish potatoes 51.43, sweets 95 cents, hay $19.80, peanuts 5.6 cents and sorghum syrup 78 cents per gal lon. With this showing and know ing full well that the average North Carolina farmer is not nearly as efficient as he should be, just imagine what this state could do with a fully developed system of crop production and marketing.
