H. WASHBUBN- THE effect of the .supreme court's AAA decision is to do j 1 s troy compulsory crop control and turn back the pages of j farm relief history to the days when we were debating the McNary-lljuigen and similar farm bills. Meanwhile, every farm producer who has money due him from the government on an undischarged contract will be paid in full. " —i»j There's no question about this point. The moral obligation of the government will be paid, if necessary, out of the general work relief fund. Mut that only takes care of current contracts. Chief among the substitutes proposed for the AAA are the domestic- allotment and export-debenture plans.

May End Itednclion WASHINGTON.- i/h -High AAA officials Tuesday night forrwiw almost complete collapse of their cotton program, and the production of an unre- sliicted crop in Ifl.'IG. With federal | control of production removed by the | Supreme Court's decision, one official • said a crop of 15,000,000 bales next fall j would not be unexpected. j Only one possible solution w.is seen i —growers themselves could organize i and voluntarily agree to cut produc- I tion. But officials conceded there appeared little hope for .such action be- I cause of the short time remaining before the crop will be planted. ' Unfavorable weather last year, combined with previous reduction programs reduced surpluses of cither prin- j cipal crops. The AAA had planned : almost maximum production of hogs this year and only a five per cent re| ductiim in wheat. But a .').') per cent reduction in cotton acreage lor 1 (),')(• was desired.
