i AIKEN COUNTY R. R. MELLETTE FARM FLASHES Countf A«»t Garden adversity^must not spell' defeat for the: Victory Gardener. In view of the critical .-boll weevil situation I quote -the -following -following froiri a report of June 30 by P. P. Bondy, of the Pee -Dec Experiment Station.- ". "r!. '"Gotten '"Gotten in the Piedmont .is generally in the presquare .stage. A total.of 10,600 plants"exarjtinell oh 106 farms in. -IS . Piedmont' ounties showed 152'weevils on 68 of the farms examined. This is an average of one boll'weevil to each 70 plants on all '106 farms, or one boll weevil to each 45 plants on the 68 infested farms. On a. pel- acre basis, this . weans approxi- m'ately 215 for all farms, or 325 for the infested farms. In cither case, this is>an 'extremely high average. Highest infestations were found in Saluda, McCormick, Chesterfield, Greenwood and Dewberry Dewberry Counties, with Abbeville, Greenville, Anderson, and Oconee following in close order. Square infestation records made in 208 farms in 28 counties showed 206 of. these farms infested infested with boll weevils. Clarendon and Collcton counties Jiad infestations infestations averaging 36.0 and 36.1 percent, respectively. ' Calhoun, Sumter, Bamberg, Richland,. Saluda, Saluda, McCormick, and Chester, field all had infestations averaging averaging between 20 and 30 percent. Only Chester, AHendale, Darling- ion, Marlboro, and .Florence had infestations averaging less than ^'Percent. _The average..!or the entire state was 13.7 percent. Last y?_ar_at this tune the state average was only 5~.9 percent. "With the present high levels of infestation, 'combined with favorable weather conditions, the present situation really looks critical," says Mr. Bondy, "and farmers are advised to prepare .immediately" to'wage war against the boll weci-il if they expect to .make a .crop of- cotton." Full particulars on how to fight the boll weevil now -may be had from county agents, the Extension Service at Clemson, or the Pee Deo Station at Florence." \Vjllis Collins, Jr., Tom.

Maybe the leopard can't change his spots; but any farmer can change the poor spots in a field to make them productive like the rest of the field. .SUMMONS FOR RELIEF (Complaint Served) Stale of South Carolina, County of Aiken In The Court of Common Pleas.
