Senator Bankhead Stands Firmly on His Control Law A b a n cl on m e n t Would Lead to 18-Million-Bale Crop, He Declares FARMERS WANT IT Production Control Farmer's Only Salvation, Bankhead Believes By Senator John If. Bankhead (Author of Bankhead Cotton Act) (Written for thc Associated press) / '"7ASHNGTON.-(yp)-Thcrc is but / way to suspend the tax on gin- ng cotton in excess of individual Jlotmcnts. That way is for thc prcs- Jdcnt to issue a proclamation that the /economic emergency hi thc production and marketing of cotton has ceased to exist. ' That would be a tremendously high price to pay to avoid the payments necessary to market the excess cotton. If'it is ascerta'inccr~anil proclaimed that the emergency in marketing col- ton has ceased to exist there would be no justification for thc continuance of thc 12-cent cotton loan. There would be no justification for further administrative operations covering cotton, cither under the bankhead act or acreage rentals. There would be no justification for continuing thc processing taxes. These are all emergency measures and based upon legislation declaring them emergency acts as legal support for their constitutionality. Certificates Are Crop Insurance Farmers in thc drouth area look to their unused certificates as a form o cro pinsurance. They also will have thc right next year to use unsold certificates to pay the tax on that much cotton in addition to next year's allotments, if thc act is retained in effect. They have thc moral and a property right. They are suffering much more than arc thfcir fellow farmers who have excess cotton to which thc tax applies, The Dankhcad act saved the acreage rental program this year. Every one connected with thc acreage rental plan, from the chief of the cotton Hauptmann's Case Adjourned Until First of October Arraigned Monday in "ironx Court, But Indictment Is Delayed IN ARMORED TRUCK Sheriff's Van Used to Transport Prisoner From Jail Cell tecnien, knows that sufficient acreage reduction could not have been secured to make the plan effective but. for the Bankhead act. If the acreage rental plan had been culled off, as it doubtless would have been, but for thc passage of the BanJi- heacl act, more cotton probably would have been produced than last year notwithstanding the drouth. Thc drouth reduced the si/c of the total crop only about 12 per cent. Those who have excess cotton occupy a good position. They will get as much money for cotton upon which they pay a tax, including the .seed, ai they got last year for the game amount of cotton. When thc allotted cotton is included the average per bale, including the seed, is greatly increased over last year and two and a half times over thc price received in 1D322. Change Means Price Drop. Thc Bureau of Agricultural Economics figures that under present conditions a change of one million hales chagcs thc price nearly one cent a pound. If control i.s abandoned next year, and we have average weather I believe we can look for an 18.000,000 bale crop. When the price is good nearly every producer is hungry for more cotton. Last year, but for the plow-up, we would have Ivad 17,000,000 bales. It seems unthinkable to me that our cotton farmers would want to go back to the prices of W31 and 1932, more emphasis should be placed upon thc number of dollars received than upon the number of pounds to be sold tax free. We should face thc task of removing inequalities in making allotments rather than destroying a program which will bring to the cotton bell this year twice as much- money as came to us from the crop of 1932, and many iniljipjis more than was rccciv- " J _by',#»§i farmers test year. ion of food and feed T.

Return to Mills WASIIINGTON.-f/IV-MiU whistles Monday will summon back to their looms most, of the many thousands who three weeeks ago answered thc strike call of the United Textile workers. Foremost as the walkout ends is the question of whether jobs await those who took leading parts in it, with militant unionists on the alert for any indications of discrimination against their colleagues. The strike was called off Saturday i that all will be re-hired regardless of union activities. Other members of the- council argued that discrimination was outlawed by the terms of the settlement, proposed by the Winant presidential Mediation Board, endorsed by President Roosevelt and accepted by the union as the basis for ending the walkout. Under the settlement, a board of three will be named by the president to adjudicate all questions of recognition, collective bargaining and complaints arising from the Recovery Act's 7-A guarantee that workers may organize as they cho.se. Mill owners' policy in rehiring strikers would be included, labor leaders sail and any discrimination would be reported to the board as soon as it was appointed.

Rhyne, submitted his resignation to the State Highway Commission at the last meeting and it is expected the commission will accept it Wednesday, effective October 1, it was learned over the week-end. Director Rhyne, a Little Rock engineer, was appointed director of highways when the department was reorganized after Governor Futrell was ' inangurated in January, -1933.-, It was reported that J. C. Baker, Little Rock engineer, who is state superintendent of maintenance for the' department is the leading choice for a successor to Mr. Rhyne. Mr. Baker was appointed district superivsor with headquarters in Paragould early in 1933, nnd was promoted about six months ago. Another report current was that Dan Futrell of Paragould, brother of the governor, who now is district supervisor, may succeed Mr. Baker is state maintenance supervisor. No reason for Mr. Rhync's resignation could be obtained but it was reported that thc move was the result of political differences.
