Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H Washburn Hope «flHLwik Write an Air-Mail Letter T HIS week) according to Postmaster A. Judson Pryor of Tcxurkana, l:he Postof'f'ice Department is sponsoring an air-mail feeder survey which may determine whether this section is to obtain a direct air-mail route. December 10th has been designated as the test day. If you wish to help, gd. off & Jotter now, marking the envelope, "Mold for December 10th special air-mail." And of course it will take the regular air-mail rate, 6 cents an ounce. The idea is (his: All over America the Postoffice Department is pulling down a mail plane on a certain announced day in cities whieh at present don't have air service. If enough mail comes through on this test flight there is a possibility that small planes will be put into service, linking the lesser cities with the stopping points of the big transcontinental airliners — 00 It's worth helping. Write your letter today for the special handling of December 10th. Unless you have seen one of the great metropolitan air terminals you really don't know what the future holds for transportation in Ihe sky. I passed the Newark terminal outside New York City this summer—and saw probably more planes on one field than there were in the whole United Slates a few years HRO. Only the largest cities will see the real giants of the air—but smaller "feeder" ships will bring the lesser towns close to the main lines. Obviously, if a mail ship makes daily stops at Texarkana it will practically put Hope on direct airmail .service—com laired with our present connection at either Memphis or Dallas. Star Farm Bill Loses in First Test hi House by Vote of 85 to 76 Provision Cor Compulsory Control o/c,Wheat Crop BORAH ATTACKS BILL Vote on Measure Is Tentative, Leaders Hope to Overcome It WASHINGTON -I/I 1 )—The .sc.-n.-ile rejected TiiL'.sdny an amendment by Senator McNnry of Oregon, Republican load'.'!', to limit Uie opiM'ation of tilt? farm bill lei I href ve;irs, 19.18 through 1940. The vote was f>l to 2.~». Assorting the legislation presented a "spertm'lo of disjointed relationships," MeNiii-y had argued thai the tl:n .-e-yesir program "will "Rive us .some time to try out this measure, which is an eincrgency measure lifter ill!." Senator Pope Democrat of Idaho, ami eo-authoi- of Ihu measure, answered that McNary's proix>sal would "ser- iotisly injure" the program. The hou.se resumed its debnte on the compulsory control of cotton through marketing tpiotas atfer rejecting a proposal by Representative Hobbs, Deinocral of Alab.-urifi, to make controlled planting effective in 1938. The hill provides for delaying operation of that feature until 1939. Reject Compulsory Bill WASHINGTON-t/r-t—The administration's philosophy of compulsory farm control, subject to approval of n majority of the farmers, .suffered a setback Monday in its first test on the House floor. The chamber voted, 85 to 76, against the farm bill's provision for compulsory cintrol of the amount of wheat a farmer sell.'". The provision would have imposed marketing quotas when surpluses threatened Jo depress prices and a majority nf the producers approved government control, farmers would have had In pay a tax of 15 cents a bushel on wheat sold in excess of quota.s. Chairman Jone.-; (D-.-m., Tcx.i of the Agriculture Committee protested in vain to lu.s colleanues that without, the mariu-t i 1 4 [,-nivisions, wheat prices Would ri>ll;i|,.se. In the hitter argument that preceded the vote, Kcpre.scntative. Wadsworth (Hep. N. V.i ihargi-il that the farm bill .spelled I (illi.-r'Mii, and Hepre.sentative Coffee (Dem., Nob.I said the wheat marketing provision was unconstitutional and its tax confiscalory. Coffee proposed I,, eliminate the compulsory marketing control. The House's decision was tentative, and administration leadi rs hoped to overturn it he- fore final action on the bill. The representative left in the legislation provi.M'iii for federal allotment of wheat, acreage according to the production deemed needed, and for benefit payments to producers co-op- ciiiling with those allotments.

Administration leaders, apparently had nominated Schwellenhach to malch the oratorical fury Borah unleashed last Friday. At that time Borah drn.ainted crop control as "national suicide" and called on the government to "spend a billion dollars" in buying excess produce for the needy. "The slum dweller in Nesv York doesn't want a bale of cotton, he wants a .shirt and the poor Southerner doesn't want a sack of corn, ho wants pork ehop.s," Sehwcllcnbach said. "Cost to the government doesn't end with buying cotton, corn and wheat," he added, "but involves paying for manufacture processing, transportation and distribution. And, if we're going to provide bread and meat we'll have to balance the diet with apples and potatoes.

Reject Board Plan of Wage-Hour Bill Revised Measure Clots the Approval of Labor Committee WASHINGTON. - Wi - The House Labor Committee Monday approved a revised wage and hour bill eliminating, the proposed administrative board. In repccting the administration-proposed five-man board, the committee acquiesced to the wishes of the American Federation of Labor. Citing the adverse decisions it has received from the National Labor Relations Board in its row with the C. 1. O., the A. F. of L. vigorously has opposed the establishment of another board in the labor field. Instead of the five-man board, the committee approved a one-man administrator in the Labor Department. The change obviously was a popular one in the House and it was generally expected that barring unforeseen developments, the amendment would be approved. An objection, to wage-hour legislation emanated from u committee of the United Status Chamber of Commerce, which said: "Wage rales and hours of work for adult employes of enterprises engaged in industry and commerce should continue to be adjusted through voluntary action of employers and employes, negotiating either individually or collectively, and with only such legislative restrictions as may be validly imposed by state governments to protect the health and well being of workers for whom such legislative protection may be necessary."
