This year the oiinorlimllfo foi eaily fall Ueslriiclloi; of stalks nrc bettei than ever because the drought manned the crop enrly ovei the Inige tu-cas, because more of the crop has ahen-ly brcn picked thnn is usiinl al this dale, because the ncieagc to l>e picked is smaller than for many years, and wcmiEe laboi for picking Is abundant The necessity for enrly fall destruction of the slalks—also tjreat- -fi than usual-Is due to the fact that the late, summer rains caused much of the cotton to put on a second growth tlmt is too late to produce n cro|> of anything but'boll 1 wcevlh unless (be stalks with this second Kiontli are dcsti-oyed promptly enormous numbers of weevils Rill develop in the lute Equal es, thus greatly Increasing the iimnbei-s of KCcvlls entering winter quarters ami • proportionately iiioraiiing die numbers that will be In the cotton fields next.

The -shipment of thousands of .cattle into the Cotton Bell and the general shoitage of feed due to the drought, give the grower an ^opportunity to utilize the cotton plans as emergency forage. The most economical way is to graze the fields before frost. Where all the crop cannot be used In this way, however, the stalks may be cut and cured for hay. Plants Hint are bushy and full of leaves arc best for hay They should be 'cut us early as possible before the leaves mature and shed. Using the plants for forage allows live grower to make a profit on his old crop o'Ki nt the same time helps control the boll weevil Fields recently dusted with ar- senicals should not. be used for lorage. . ^ . The important thing is to stop the production of tele squares by deslro>lng Hie stalks, by grazing, or by maJJng hay. This will present the breeding of ' additional ncevib and will deprive the ivee- vih already present of food, so they will go mlp hibernation in n weakened condition. The earlier the stalks are destroyed the more ctlective the weevil control.
