A suggestion that elimination high-cast production areas could take up the slncrk of reduced ncre- nge by increased crops in the low cost section was advanced by" the assistant chief of Bureau of Agricultural Economics in Washington. Dr. Sherman Johnson told today's | session that cotton production must be centered in arens best adapter! to the crop. Land unsulted lo cnt- ton must be turned to livestock and other uses, lie snid. The South's industrial expansion will help care for workers temporarily dislocated by the cotton concentration. Dr. Johnson nclduii. He predicted that a successful transition would result In higher income and income' opportunities for farm laborers. Caution Issuer! • Dr. Lewis Hawkins, vice-director of Oklahoma's experiment station at Stilhvater, cautioned against over-optimism at mechanization advances in recent years, "A large opportunity for further perfection of nil of these machines Rtil Is at hand, lie said. "The Operating farmer Is not convinced nor sold on the Improvement fast enough unless he sees It in actual practice," he reported. "Since the cotton fnrmer must operate under a system ol acreage allotment, he must consider crops .grown on non-cotton acres," said James Hand, Jr., of Rolling "Fork, Miss. "He no longer 'Is simply cotton, producer. "The success of his enterprise depends on the combined profits realized on all of his Investments." Plantation Mechanized Hand reported thnt his plantation is practically all mechanized. In 1940, he said, 75 per cent, of his cotton crop was picked mechanically. The national average for mechanical picking last year was less than eight per cent. The rest ot hand's crop was handpicked by the labor'force he maintained to weed the fields. This year he has planted only one-third of his total crop acreage to cotton.
