HARBINGER OF SPRING
Throughout Southland Interest is
Centered on Great Show at At
lanta Next Month.
The Great Southern Automobile
Show to be held in Atlanta, March
&tli to 12th, at the immense audi

every standpoint, what the great
New York show was to the North
and East, and the Coliseum show

and who are interested in the
many needful articles of equip
ment for automobiles.

period of the show the celebrated
Kilties band. This is the one musi.

THE BARROW TIMES
FOR THE FUTURE
The present financial crisis has
affected all towns and all sections.
It has retarted growth and pros

things to our country at large.
These are facts we cannot deny

We are, after all, weak creatures
and in a short while after a catas
trophe go back into the same old
ruts and forget our mistakes, our
trials and troubles.
Even the old man of 70 years
grieves and mourns over the death
of his devoted wife and companion
and vows he cannot survive the
shock, but in a few months he is
as sprightly as a young man and
is anxious to marry the 18 year old
girl his baby boy is courting. He
forgets his age and his rheumatic
pains and can walk with the erect
ness of a military chieftain.
We soon forget the past and go
to planing for the future.
The same is true of towns and
cities. In a short while we will
go to planing for a greater Win

The posibilities for Winder are
yet untold. It is just now in its
infancy, and this little setback
will only impede its growth and
prosperity for a short while.

Winder is grown. It is just be
ginning to grow' and you will be
astounded ten years from today
when you wake up and And her
population has doubled.
The posibilities for the future of
Winder ought to make you feel
proud that you are one of its citi

to a sense of your responsibilities

FARMERS PLAN FIGHT ON
National Board to Negotiate Di
rectly With Fertilizer
By James A. Holloman
Washington, February 17, — Spe
cial.—Plans which may lead to
important reductions in the price
of fertilizers were set in motion at
the closing session of the national
board of farm organizations today.
Directors of the board who repre
sent the combined purchasing
power of thousands of farmers in
many of the principal states using
large quanities of the product,
agree that direct negotiations
should he made with the fertilizer
companies, which are said to be
selling at terms regarded exces
sive by farmers.
The national board of farm or
ganizations calls attention to the
fact that the United States depart
ment of agriculture has jurisdic
tion over the sale of fertilizer ow
ing to war-time powers. The
board has knowledge of the fact
that the department of agriculture
has been considering the recom
mendation or enforcement of dras
tic reduction in the price of ferti
lizer. Certain price reductions
have already been made or are
in sight as the result of depart
mental hearings with the ferti
The national board of farm or
ganizations, it was said today, be
lieves it has information which
conclusively proves that price re
ductions are greatly out of line
with the costs of manufacture.
“Several of the fertilizer com
panies either own directly or con
trol through subsidary and inter
locking companies phosphate
mines, according to my under
standing,’’said O. A. Thomas, busi
ness agent for the Virginia Far
mers’ union, who is attending the
meeting of the board. “These
fertilizer folks have entered what
I consider an invalid claim to the
right to charge prevailing prices
on the ground that the cost of rock
phosphate has greatly increased,
but some of these same companies
are in reality owners of the phos
phate in question.” said Mr.
Dr. E. H. Stock bridge, of the
Farmers’ National congress, and
former editor of the Southern
Ruralist of Atlanta, is chairman of
the fertilizer committee which will
immediately arrange for a confer
ence between fertilizer companies
and the farmers.
Specific action by the national
board of farm organizations with
reference to securing an early vote
on the C'apper-V olstead bill to
.clarify the status of collective
marketing, has not yet been an
nounced. The board has held ex
ecutive sessions throughout its
meeting this week. Indignation
was expressed, however, by mem
bers of the board at the delay to
bring these measures to an im
mediate, final decision.
“If a filibuster is ever justifi
able now is the time.” said ( har
les S. Barrett, chairman of the
board and president of National
Farmers’ union. “lam inclined to
think that some staunch friend of
agriculture who realizes the fair
ness and importance of these
measures to both producers and
consumers throughout the coun
try, might well undertake to lead
a fight to hold up some pending
legislation dear to the hearts ot
the capitalists of this nation,
cspccilly in one or two cases where
such proposed legislation may be
of doubtful propriety.”
