To say thatv'the world is 'getting smaller by th'o clock is merely to perpetrate another bromide. But it is all too true. ; It is, perhaps, the central fact of our times. It is a tendency which has been marked for more than 100 years, but which happens now to be going forward with terrifying speed. The world is shrinking so fast that many of 'us do not yet realize it. As it grows smaller, as every community on earth becomes closer to every other community in ' point of time, so it grows more interdependent. We learned part of the lesson during the depression. We know that in the United States the North Retiiin Cotton Acreage .,. A " . Assoc 'a(«I Press story from Washington published by The Star last August stating that Hcmpslcad county would not lose any'of its cotton acreage allotment by reason of the Southwestern Proving Ground was verified Wednesday in a letter from Congressman Oren Harris released by Hope Chamber of Commerce. Congressman Harris enclosed a ruling by I. W. Duggan, director of the Southern division of the AAA, which said: "A provision has been made under the 1942 Agricultural Conservation Program whereby the cotton allotments for any land which is removed from agricultural production because of ac- quisition.by a state or federal government agency used for industrial purposes in connection with the National Defense program shall be considered as released, to the state committee becausefjt will riot be planted in 1942, It is also provided that such acreage: shall be available only'for making equitable allotments for farms operated by persons who in 1941 were producers of cotton on the land removed from agricultural production."

City Choir- not prosper in the face of a dust- seared West; no man can be secure m riches while many are poor. The world is getting in the same case. The fall of the Austrian Credi- tanstalt in 1931 was a domino that pushed over the whole World War debt structure, and was reflected in business all over the world. Deflected back again from the American shore, the great depression washed over Europe. We have found, to our sorrow, that ;hey were right who said "Peace is indivisible." We arc learning that trade and prosperity arc equally so The channels of normal world trade nust be reopened. Barriers must be thrown down. The idealism of yesterday has become the urgent, pressing necessity of tomorrow. It will not do to break those bar- •icrs down with tanks and guns. Bar- •icrs must be leveled intelligently and peacefully by people who have decided it is best, not by a conqueror. The New World still offers hope. Argentina and Brazil have just taken he first steps toward a customs un- on. Free entry into either country is vovided for products of new indus- ncs of the other. The road has been Jpencd toward a vast free-trade area omprising both these vast South American republics. The barrier has been thrown down by reason and peaceable agreement not by force. Similar future arrangements between the United States and Canada are being actively discussed. Trade between all the countries of the Americas is being facilitated by a series of reciprocal trade treaties. Even while the world reels under the shock of war which vitally af- sed there."
