KILLINGi BANANA GROPS Disease Threatens Jamaica A disease as fatal to banana palms as the boll weevil is to cotton plants has made its appearance on one of the islands of Jamaica, which exports from ten mil lion to fifteen million bunches annually. Representative growers advised members of the Congressional party aboard the transport Henderson that unless some means can be found to check it the bannana industry will become almost extinct within the next ten or fifteen years.
