Under this program, exporters wh> belong to the Cotton Export Corpora lion can ship colton to foreign com tries and store it until buyers Diet- are able I pay for it. Meantime th KFC will lend hose exporters 80 pe eenl of the delivered value of the cot ton. When the buyer pays for Ihc col ton, the HFC will get its money bad Ordinarily, and especially in wi times', exporters do not ship cotlo unless they arc assured in advance lha the importer is able lo pay at once j Officials explained that the new pro- ! gram was designed lo encourage exporters to ship cotton despite increased risks resulting from the war. The govrenment will assume the bulk of Ihc credit risk. The loan plan is the second important measure inaugurated this year lo cxpcdile shipments of cotton. Laic in July, the Agriculture Department set up an cxpor subsidy program under which exporters were offered a bounty of 1 1-2 cents a pound on raw cotton and equivalent payments on cotton products sold abroad. Officials said exporters operating under the RFC loan program would be cligablc for Ihc export bounties. Principal objective of these would measures, officials said, was to reduce a record surplus of about 14,000,000 ales of American cotton as well to regain lost markets. The government hopes lo expand exports this eason to more than 6,000,000 bales. ,ast year's volume of about 3,750,000 ales was the smallest since 1872. Cotton and cotton products sold or export during the first 11 weeks jf the current season totaled 2,886,000 sales, representing a substantial in- rca.sc over the corresponding period in he previous season. The Cotton Export Corporation was- described by RFC officials as a co- ipralivc organization of 20 of the na. ion's leading cotton exporters. C W.

Germany and the U. S. S. R, (Union of Soviet States of Russia): also, to draw the U. S. S. R. into a combination which is chiefly directed against Germany and eventual enemies of England and France in the Mediterranean (presumably Italy). "This agreement," the paper continued, can not be evaluated as an \ instrument of peace." Denying that Russia would lose be^cause of the German alliance, Izes- tia said the Soviet state had maintained "freedom of action, which can not be said about Turkey—Turkey-has assumed a responsibility which can not fail to be reflected on Turkish policies within the nearest future."
