ROWE 12TH TO AAA Poll Called Off in South to 'Protect Tenants' Government Fears Landlords Would Dominate Cotton Voting VOTE OrT^ANKHEAD This Much Guaranteed by Actual Text of Cotton Production Law WASHINGTON - (/!') — Fear that wh.'/ nnd nej?,ro tenant f^.triers .might not have ample opportunity to express their views 1ms led AAA officials to set n.tide a plan for n referendum among cotton growers on the form of next year's voluntary adjustment program. Only a few days ngo enthusiasm for the referendum idea—now being tried out on the corn and hog phases—had reached the point whore a vote on the voluntary cotlon program seemed assured. Now, the consensus is to confine Southern voting to the Bankhcad compulsory cotlon hill, since the referendum to see whether it should he continued for another year is called for by the. act itself. Procedure Questioned Several questions, apparently not. taken into consideration when the' suggestion was first broached, caused the coolness toward the proposed referendum to sec how many acres Southern fanners want to plant next year. Not the least of these is who should Vote if a ballot is held. In the case of com and hogs the ballot- Ing is under auspices of the county control committee. Should this procedure bo followed In the South, however, landowners might dominate the voting and some officlolcvfool th«t few. i rtfttcro fanners would bo'naked to participate,- nnd that some white tcnnnUt might be excluded also. Consequently, the charge might be mode that the vote represented only sentiment of landlords. The Southern tenant problem, involving both negro and white, has caused the AAA trouble since the first cotton reduction program in 193:!. Complaints that the landowners, in many cases, got more than their share of benefit payments and assertions that tenants have been driven off the land through acreage reduction have caused AAA investigations Reports ensuing have said in effect that there was foundation for a comparatively tew protests but some officials are known to feel that the inquiries only skimmed the surface. Answer to Criticism The plan far a farmers' referendum WHS devised to answer charges of bureaucracy and to bolster agriculture support for whatever programs finally were adopted by letting th egrow- t»rs themselves decide. Officials said one reason a vote to determine farmer altitude toward thn cotlon program was not necessary was that the producers who joined the control plan for this year were already under contract for next year. Secretary Wallace has said, how- rvcr; it was up to the Southern producers to decide whether (hey wanted to expand cotton acreage fur next ja-nson in tinier to keep America s 'cotton l.lm-c; in the world market. How the growers will register this sentiment has not been determined. LITTl.F. HOCK—Announcement that the referendum on the form of next year's voluntary collnn adjustment proc.r;.in had been called off by the AAA was received with surprise by E D White, state chairman of we cr.tt.m allotment board. White talked to officials in Washington over the telephone, he said, and no mention was made of abandoning the referendum. „ The Agricultural Extension Service was going ahead with plans to conduct the cotlon referendum, probably about October 15. T. Roy Reid, acting director in charge of the Extcn- tion. Service, Mr. White and others were hoping for the adoption of a South-wide plan calling for a general vote on one day at community school houses, much as political elections are held. "We would like to have the referendum." Mr. While said. "Certainly the producers should he in favor of it, MIUX- they would do the voting, and the opponents cf any cotton adjustment program should favor it, to cle- Essayist Kcecc Hamilton Pocket Dictionary Ransom Note Aid German-English Book Is Found in Hauptmann's Trunk NEW YORK.—(/P)—District Attorney Samuel J.

Bobcats Are 'Set' for Fordyce Game Madison's Return Lends Strength to Backfield— Payne at"Quarter , After three days of intensive .traw* ing, Coach Foy H. Hammons announced Thursday'that his Bobcat team was ready for the most important round of competition undertaken to date— Fordyce here Friday night, H will be the third .game of the season for Hope and the fourth for the Redbugs. : Fordyce holds victories over'Smack- over and Louann. but was trouced last Saturday afternoon by Pme Bluff, 32 to 0. The Bobcats have two victories tucked away, a 71-to-O win over Hamburg and a 14-to-O victory over C»m- dcn. The Redbugs, always dangerous on a dry field, are a deceptive and tricky outfit. Coach Bob Cowan employes the-famous Southern California shift with many reverse and lateral plays. The Fordyce team, according to information received here Thursday, will outweigh the locals 8 or 10 pounds to the man; however the official weight of the Redbugs has not been received by Coach Hammons. The Bobcats will enter the game minus Willis Stone. 180-pound star tackle. Stone will sec- the game from the sidelines as he is suffering from three fractured ribs The balance of the tram is in good shape with the exception of two or three players with minor injuries.'. The hopes and ambitions of the Bobcats were bolstered this week with the return of Kenneth Madison to the hackticVd ami the addition <>f Dick Moore and Hoobs in the lino. Madison will start in a halfback position, left vacant by Payne when he was shifted to quarter to fill the ..•hnos of Fete Brown, who was rulfd mtlifiibU; this week.
