and orclmrdlst during tho next six
months, according to an announcement
from Washington recently, says the
San Francisco Chronicle. Tho ma

was necessary to create restricted
safety zones where no cotton could be
grown. Certain outlaw planters In

defied the government and plnuted hi
these districts, which nro difficult to
