Governors Race Atty.-Gen. to Seek Re-Election Experiment Station Director Addresses Farmer Guests of Kiwanii MARKET "SATURATED Cotton Now on Hand Equal to Entire Year's Production Nine of the leading farmers of Rempstead county turned out for a "Live At Home" program arranged by the Kiwanls Club for Its weekly meeting, Friday night at the Capitol Hotel. This was in support of a statewide movement to ' impress on the population the small chance of getting a fair price for the things the . farmer has to sell on the market this year, and the necessity of raising as much of his food and feed as possible, as a bulwark against continued low prices for farm crops. George Ware, in charge of the Fruit & Truck experiment station, and principal speaker of the evening, t8ld how cotton had always been the m^jor cash crop of Arkansas, and would no doubt always continue to be. "Our farmers know how to raise cotton," he said; "They have experience with this crop, as well as the tools and the farm lands adapted to it. However, 17 million bales of cotton were produced in the South last year, to which must be added a carry-over of 9 million bales, making a total of 26 million bales to -be consumed, when economists' estimate «pnly 13 'dur- By HENRY N. DORRIS Associated Press Staff Writer LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—(^-Governor Parnell is definitely "a candidate for the United States Senate. "You may state that 1 positively will be in the race for United States Senator and at the proper time will make a formal announcement," he tlod the Associated Press. Governor Parncll's statement was not unexpected, as it has been known in political circles he is a candidate and has been organizing his race ever since shortly after Senator T, H. Caraway died last November. The senatorial race will get under way formally next Wednesday night at Fayetteville, when Vincent M. Miles of Fort Smith, Democratic National Committecman and a candidate for the senate, speaks before the Young Democrats organization. * It will be Mr. Miles' first formal utterance since his announcement early last month. He is expected to make known his platform. Meanwhile, political circles are awaiting the announcement of former Governor Charles Hillman Brough, who is to be a senatorial candidate. Two other prominent men who are almost certain to enter the senate race are expected to give the word soon. One of them is Associate Justice William F, Kirby of the state supreme court. Judge Kirby was in the United States senate for four years preceding 1920, and was defeated for reelection by the late Senator Caraway. The other prospective candidate is Joe K, Mahony of El Dorado. Just what the situation is regarding the governor's race no one seems to know. There have been no visible developments since Circuit Judge Hidhard M. Moninf of Little Rock, threw his hat in the ring two or three weeks ago. There seems to be much milling around, however, among the politicians and it "would not be surprising to see something definite spring forth soon. Other state races are getting off to slow starts. For instance, the lieu tenant governor's race. The incumbent, Lawrence Wilson of Camden, possibly will |a(eek Jfc-election but there's talk he may make the governor's race. Attorney General Hal L. Norwood is practically certain to be a candidate for re-'election. John L. Carter, assistant commissioner of insurance and a former assistant attornt.\ general, has made no announcement of his plans, but he seems to be keeping, touch closely with developments in the attorney general's race with a view to entering.

Thus,' it may be some years before this surplus is taken off the market," he said, Mr. Ware told how all farm produce had declined in value about half since the depression set in. Cotton has declined about 65 per cent in value in this time, as compared with 55 per cent for all building materials. Cotton buys only half of all the things the farmer needs to buy from the' merchants, even though all these commodities have also declined, he said. Mr. Ware pointed out that Arkansas cotton crop was valued at 263 million dollars in 1929. This declined to half that figure in the drouth year of 1930, or '134 million dollars. The value for last year's bumper crop was only 150 millions, due to low prices, j In face of the above figures, cotton is not 'apt to increase in price this year, and may decline, he said. Al- j though there was but little increase I last year in the value of cotton, the lOlmillion-dollar food and feed crop has enabled Arkansas farmers to get through this winter without assistance. Ware urged an increased yield per acre — a yield as large as possible, on as few acres as possible, in order to lower the per-pound cost of producing, as one way out of the low price dilemma. He also urged a well-developed local market," such as the curb markets found in various places, as 28 Missing After Two Vessels Sink Tug Founders,, in Gale, Schooner Goes Down in Collision N E W Y O RK.-(;p)-Twenty-eight missing men are believed to have drowned as the. result of a ship collision -and s d terrible gale that caused •Twenty-one of, 'the missing were members of the cretfbf the schooner Eleanor Nickerson, whiqh sank after a colision with 'the steamer Jean Jadot 350 miles east of Halifax.

If hogs ure worth 4 cents per pound in St. Louis market, and it costs Hempstead county 6 cents per pound to grow and ship hogs there, the farmer would have to pay 8 cents per pound, or considerably more, for the pork , he needs for his own use. Therefore he should raise pork to sell to himself at cents per pound.
