This article recounts the decision of the federal government on July 28, 1933, to pay William E. Morris of Nueces County, Texas for plowing under his forty-seven acres of cotton. The payment was done under the New Deal legislation of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. To many Texas farmers the cotton acreage reduction payment was the difference between surviving and starving.
