Adams, county ngenl said In discussing tile cotton situation with reference to tile coming 'cotton marketing cjuola referendum to be held on Saturday, December 13. Although the supply of Aniericnn cotton is slightly less than il was a year ago there is still enough American cotlon on hand to supply the domestic market for two years if no more cotlon were grown, lie said. The supply is now about 23,800,000 bales, which includcr. a 12,000,000 bale cnl-ry- over and this year's crop estimated nt about 11,000,000 bales. Combined export nnd domestic markets will use about 11,000,000 hales of the 23,000,000 p bale supply this year rnd the carryover at the start of next marketing year Is expected to be about the same ns this year. The present cotton loan of 815 per cent of parity, which Is available only if marketing quoins are in effect, is one of (he main factirs in the sharp increcse in cotlon prices in recent months, Ihe county agent said. .Other factors which have contributed to Ihe increased price of cotton is the in- creaes in consumption because of Ihe defense program, the smaller than average crop and gunnrnl increase in prices. Cotlon farmers have used marketing quotas for cotton for the last, four years as an effective moans controlling the marketing of cotton, Mr. Adams said in conclusion, ami they :nusl decide on December 13 if they will continue to use them, lie urged that every cotton farmer in the county exercise his democratic privilege of expressing his opinion on Ihe question and vole in the referendum.

Reports of community charities by,cl.ub groups were reported. M"'ss Harris w«s with us this tiiAe. The date was ,'s,et tor the cooking school December 15th at the home of Mrs. Fred Cauy? in the State Department news more than ever these days. You have only to look at any paper to see headlines screaming out what the State Department thinks about the Kearny torpedoing, or what it is doing to short-circuit Nazi plots. Not that the 'State Department itself ever screams; it's far. too dign'iriec! and well-bred for that. It's the newspaper correspondents covering this august institution who translate the often obscure and diplomatic statements of Secretary Cordell Hull and his spokesmen into qwn-to-earth language. Eight or nine reporters regularly arc on hand to watch every statement or report that comes from State Department sources. They are employed by the various wire services and leading American newspapers. A score oi! others drop in daily to keep abreast of the high spots of the news. Among these are feature writers, radio men and representatives of the- Chinese, Japanese, French, British, Russian, and German news agencies, who make the press room resemble a of Nations meeting of happier lays. At first glance it seems a sort of sleepy place, this old-fashioned ornate Department -of State building, just icross the street from the White louse. Usually it doesn't gut really .ernoon. The club decided to cook a 'ruit cake and candy. There will also :e demonstrations on Christinas gifts. Flans were made to help the Cen- lerville Club with their Christmas program. The club will have a call meeting Monday at the home of Mrs. Burl tloss. Games were enjoyed during social liour witli the gift being awarded Mrs. C. A. Williams. The club adjourned to meet with Mrs. Leo Collier in December. Blcvins The Blevins 4-H club met November 2G, with twenty seven members present. The purpose of this meeting was to elect new officers. They are as follows: President, David Edwards; Vice president, Ladelle Burke; Secretary Bernice Salisbury; Treasury, Pauline Samuels; Reporter Ola Mae Sewell; Eong leaders, Ladelle Burke and Mav- cia Stephens. Everyone is planning to work hard this year and make a record that Blevhis will be of. going of a mowing much before 10:30. Newsmen stroll up the long, broad flight of steps 'sometime after that leisurely hour, walk down a pillas- ter-lined corridor, past a curving stair case and enter their own sanctum behind a slatted, wooden dpor marked PRESS ROOM. General practice is to poke a nose into the Division of Current.Informa- tion office across the hall first thing, arid have a. chat with Michael MacDermott,. veteran chief of that divis 7 ion, or one of his assistants. "Mac" will talk over any press releases his office has put out, and tell the boys What's oh deck for the day. If they want to know where to find out something like the terms of the Russo- Japanese trade pact, he'll guide them to the right expert if he himself does not know offhand. Never Skip Hull One steady date for State Department reporters is the daily conference with Secretary Hull, usually held at noon. Shortly before then a stream of newsmen pours into the secretary's waiting room, and stands around a long mahogany table awaiting Hull's entrance with considerable decorum. The gentle-faced, white-haired spates- man, grepts the gathering 'with a courteous, "Good morning, gentlemen.. Have you got any questions?" Then the floor is open. The going gets thick and fast at times. Hull, clasping and unclasping' lis long hands, has to parry questions with caution, but seldom loses his southern composure. Sometimes he ,vill break the tension with a quiet i joke. Privately, Hull often throws' aside his press conference reserve and cuts right through the maze of diplomatic phraseology, pulljng no punches. "It can go to hell in a minute," was his reply to one query about the general foreign situation. After a chorused "Thank you, Mr. Secretary" has terminated Die interview, there is a peel-moll rush for the press room phones. Many State Department reporters are old-timers with all the prestige and dignity in the world under normal circumstances, but they run with the best o£ them to get a flash on the wires. Unexpected things are always popping up to keep the afternoons busy. State Department men must keep tabs on the variuos embassies and legations scattered all over northwest Washington. Frequently ambassadors or iniflisters call to see Hull or Undersecretary Stunner Welles about cvuuent business, and, of co.urse, the recent talk, with the Japanese envoys provided red-hot news. Sometimes it may be French ambassador Henri-Haye, hot under the collar because American newspapers have called him a Nazi stooge. Then the reporters who waylay him in the corridor are shown ofefnding clippings and cartoons with bitter rebukes from the Scotch-looking diplomat, S'omelimes it's Lord Halifax recently back from London with first-hand reports for Hull, and friendly but guarded comments for the press. • Too often in the past two years it has been the chief representative of a Nazi-conquered state, come to inform the United States officially of his country's fall. " Game of Shutcye There ere minor crises, too, when diplomats from hostile countries pass each other in the hall, Down-cast eyes avoid a diplomatically embarrassing situation. Envoys have been known to send a messenger back for a forgotten hat rather than encounter a diplomatic foe in Hull's waiting room. In the press room, however, these tensions between men from warring nations do not exist, or, if they do, are carefully hidden under a veneer of good-humored badinage. Chinese and Japanese representatives ruh shoulders. A hard-boiled humor is vented on the most delicate subjects. Take this colloquy for instance: American reporter to Jap reporter (very pleasantly): "And how is your government's campaign of killing women and children progessing today?" Japanese (smiling amiably): "Very satisfactorily, old man, very satisfactorily." Although foerign representatives can not indulge in heart-to-heart discussions of their country's policies with Americans, there is a sort of deep- in-the-bone reportorial training' of opinion regardless of Ins.own. reporters sense that a particular 'sub-'*' ject has passed the jjokmg stage, they f ^ tacitly drop it. • ,. fftj ' , To while away idle time betweery news breaks, or to lessen the suspe|i$tf "?
