Referring to the Lincoln't birthday addresses by Republicans, the Arkansas senator said they had in common a declaration that the president was being treated unjustly and an. appeal to sympathy. Criticisms of the presidential course, he said, have come mainly "fro madherents of the parly to which he belongs." "Every day some Republican orator tells the country that Mr. Hoover has saved the United States," Robinson said. Waving his arm toward Vice President Curtis,.whose sister, Mrs. Dolly Gann, recently was out speaking for the administration, the Democratic leader cited report of 'a lady of national renown" having told the public "there is no such thing as it panic or dcprscsion, that it has all vanished before the mngic wand 1 of the president."

Merchants Bureau 1932 Held Gloomy Cotton Bright Spot of Agriculture With Market Advantages WASHINGTON.-^;P)-Reduccd demand and large supplies generally 'ace farmers as they inter upon a new agricultural year. '"'.'. This was stressed by the Agriculture Department in its, 1932 outlook report, which mentioned the world's unsettled business 'activity, stringent credit, foreign competition and trade barriers and depreciated currency. '"The low level of industrial activity and consumer,;incomes in 1931," the report said, "will continue to influence domestic demand for farm pro- ducst in 1932." "The fprelgn demand for the agricultural products of the, United States," it added, "has fallen to a low evel and at the present moment there s very little definite evidence of significant improvments in the nca.r fu-> ture." "The Reconstruction Corporation and recently proposed legislation," the report said, "are expected to be important factors in restoring confidence and bring about more nearly normal credit conditions." Abandonment of the gold standard by foreign countries also affects American exports. Competition becomes increased. "The improtance of this increased competition," the report said, "varies considerably with different products ntering into our export trade. It is probably most severe in the case of wheat. Canada, Argentina and Australia, with their depreciated currencies, have an advantage over the United States in selling in foreign mar- cels." Cotton and some types of tobacco have been less affected than other products. This was said to be due to ow prices and the natural advantage the United States has in production and sale. The economists said there was some prospect for a slight reduction in world wheat acreage this year, cspcc- ally in the United States. The apparent supply of American cotton remaining in this country on January 1, was 17,000,000 bales, compared with 12,700,000 a year ago. Fertilizer sales have dropped sharp. ly and more boll weevils have entered hibernation, indicating a possibility of a smaller crop this year. Dairy farming continues to lead the other branches in monetary returns. Livestock producers still face large supplies and low prices.
