Senator Would Assess 15% Tax for Violation of Quotas WASHINGTON-OP)—Senator Bank- j head proposed Monday night lhat the ' government control cotton acreage rigidly next yonr and thereafter. He said cotton acreage might be reduced to 25,000,000 acres in 1938 under tho control bill he would introduce Tuesday. This would compare with the 34,000,000 acres this year and a long-time I average of about -10,000,000 acres. Growers wlrj failed to comply with assigned acreage quotas would bo taxed 75 per cent of the value of their cotton when sold.

Accordingly, he said, it would bo unnecessary to re-enact processing taxes —as some have proposed—to provide additional funds. He said his program had the sup- M>rt of a "majority of senators from the cotton belt" and would be offered as the cotton section of the general farm program in the Senate. "If we don't get some effective compulsory control for cotton." the Alabaman said, "thon I am in favor of raising $300.000,000 to 5-100,000,000 more in federal funds each year to purchase some effective voluntary action for cotton growers." Bankhead said his proposal aimed at keeping a balanced supply of American cotton available for domestic and foreign needs, and compelling a reduction in acreage whenever the supply became too large.

Last year large numbers of people LITTLE ROCK—OP)—Mormaas are preparing for a crisis by investing their money in food, homes and clothing, and by paying their debts, Elder Max T. Bairbanks, manager of the Independent (Mo.) Mormon Mission Quartet here on a good-will tour, said Monday. Church leaders have predicted a crisis in the near future, and have advised followers to prepare for it by investments in concrete, tangible things which will sustain them in chaotic times, Elder Fairbanks said. Elder Fairbanks Said no specific time had been set f6r the crisis to occur, and taid church leaders saw in present day events indication of its approach "within a short while." The Mormon's conception of marriage vows as continuing after deatli is on of several factors whch kee-j the Mormon divorce rale to 14 per 100,000 in comparison to an average 46 per 100,000 for 15 nations, Elder Fairbanks said. Because marriage is seen as binding for "time and eternity," Elder Fairbanks said Mormons guard more closely against failure of wedlock. Hasty marriages are disapproved. Young men usually wait un- .il the middle twenties before choos- ng a bride. "When we start looking for a wife, we are careful what we pick, for we jelieve we are going to be married a long time," he said. The church permits the divorce of husbands and wives who appear to hinder each other's progress, he said. No Mormons are on government relief, but many are employed on government projects, Elder Fairbanks said. Needy families have been placed on large tracts of land bought by the church in several parts of the country. Cultivation of their farms and storage of their surplus products have provided employment. Prosperous Mormons have given preference to thci fellows in employment, Elder Fairbanks said. The punctual tithing of most Mormons provide the church with a substantial income, he said.

Officials then would figure how much acreage would be needed for this production. They would consider each acre capable of producing about 200 pounds, the average per acre yield in a recent five-year period. The national acreage decided upon would be divided among states, counties and individual farms in proportion to pa.st production. Cotton growers could market all the cotton grow non the allotted acreage, and a system of federal loans would permit them to store surplus production. Benefits under the present soil conservation act would he used to bolster the income of cotton growers who complied with the federal program. He said the cotton belt had received about $100,000.000 annually in these payments in recent years and should get about $125,000,000 to ?150,000,000. Ask Revision "If you take care of the supply of cotton the price will lake care of itself" be said. "Growers received more than 12 cents a pound last year bo- cause the supply was in line with demand. The huge crop and supply this season is the cause of present low prices." Bankhead joined Senator Smith i Dem.. S. C.) in asking revision of the loan and subsidy program on the 1937 crop to permit speeding up of subsidy payments, and payment of lhe.se without requiring sale of cotton before July 1, 1938. Senators Bilbo (Dem., Miss.) and Kllander (Dem., La.i helped work out letails of the Bankhead proposal. Smith called for sharp revision of [he loan and subsidy program on this year's cotton. He said he would ask Congress to order a number of changes. Congress to order a number of changes, including one to permit payments immediately of the subsidy if up to three 1 cents a pound to growers who agreed to comply with the 1938 farm program, without awaiting to check compliance next year. Other changes included: Allow loans and subsidy payments >n the entire crop. Removal o froquircments that cotton he .sold before July 1, 1938, to obtain the .subsidy payment.
