MBA)— Mttta Ncwtpipcr BntHittM AM'n FARM BOARD DEALS RE Ten States Favor Acreage Reduction at Cotton Meeting Action Taken at Jackson Meet as Proposal for Relief Legislation COOPERATION URGED States Where Statute Has Not Been Passed Asked to Act JACKSON. Miss.—(/P)—The south- wide uniform cotton control conference late Monday adopted the Texas curtailment plan, calling for 50 per cent reduction in cotton planting in 1932 and 1933, as its recommendation for relief legislation in all the southern states. Ten f tVc 11 cotton producing sates represented here cast their votes for the Texas plan to boost prices in the face of this year's bumper-crop. North Carlonia's delegation, instructed not to vote, adstnined from the ballot. The resolution adopted by the conferences, seeking uniform legislation throughout the South, was recommended by a special committee on which each stale has two representatives whicn wrestled for hours behind closed doors on the best plan for all the legislatures to adopt. The lead of the Texas legislature in 'enactment of an acreage curtailment law has already been followed by South Carlonin, Arkansas and Mississippi. Governors of all states where the plan has not been invoked, were urged by the ionference to convene their legislatures immediately to enact the uniform law. Louisiana has -enacted a cotton holiday measure -which will probably have-t* 'Sfe siibstilsti.J^by the pit/*' posed acreage reduction plan. The 10 state allegations which lined up behind the committee amended resolotlon offered by State Senator W. B. Roberts of Rosedale, Miss., veteran legislotor and planter, were those of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Loo- isiana, Missihsippi, Missoori, Oklaho- !"•!. South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Hannonioos action and a definite tr"nrl Tor acreage reduction as opposed to total cotton prohibition predominated Monday among the approximately 200 delegates, including four governors, who gathered at the re- oiiest of Governor Harvey Parnell of Arkansas and Governor Theo Theodore G. Bilbo -of Mississippi. Dif f• rcn'-os threatened to deadlock the •assembly on several occasions, but when the resolutions committee reported out late mondny afternoon in favor of uniform reduction there was little opposition before the vote. The Roberts resolution recommended specifically that an acrage control lav.- similar in effect to the law now in force in the state of Texas be adopted by all cotton producing states, wfth such modifications of administratinve feature.-; as will prevent grave injustice In citizens of sections of such states." and that "the Independence and sovereignty of other states in adopting laws securing at least a 50 per tent reduction of acreage be respected.

The invitation was directed particularly at Democratic independents and came as leaders jockeyed for position in the quest for House control. The insurgents have not figured so strongly since the Republicans lost the m7Jority. Representative La Guardia, Republican independent. New York, and Representative Kale, Minnesota, lone Farmer-Laborite, said in issuing the call that > although the Democrats "have n majority at this time sufficient to elect a speaker neither party will have a working majority without the co-operation of the Progressives." The meeting, a joint statement said, was for arrangingj'preparalory work for a conference when all Progressives have arrived for this session."

"The Progressives feel that rules of the House which would permit the , House to retain control of legislation his offices I illu i remove boss control is of greater to guard importance to the people than the personal ambition of any individual for special committee assignments," they added. "The Progressive group therefore welcomes the continued cooperation of progressive Democrats who worked with them when the Democrats were in the minority." Should the Republican independents swing a number of Democrats, they would hold a balance of power sufficient to throw the organi/ation to either party. However, the 217 Democrats are sponsoring Representative Garner of Texas for speaker, while the 214 Republicans will decide at a conference November 30 whom they will support.

This Writer Says The Star Is Good Opinion on County Roads Seems Not to Be Unanimous After All Editor The Star: I want to say a few words complimentary to the editorials you have been writing the last few weeks.
