Wallace had to put up a stout argument again.sl that. He insisted that if the farmer was not assured of at least the "loan price" of his cotton there would be a lot of panicky selling of Hits year's crop. More over, he said the- growers had been promised n loan when they signed up for crop control lust yea rand it was no time to be fooling with such promises.

Happy Miners —Hope Star photo was a primary factor in the advance. So that leaves us with no definite reason for our present sharp upturn, and no reliable index for the immediate future. As a result, some conservative economists predict a sudden awakening in the spring, when the shelves o£ of merchants and manufacturers are slocked high with goods for which there will be no immediately optimistic buying market. Others take'a different view. They say that wat: found our economy on a slight upturn, and simply boosted it along. Besides, people are buying real goods today, not stocks, a s they were in 1929. And real production puts real wages into circulation. Maybe consumer purchasing will stimulate the whole economy of the nation, into a buying mood, and kick us into better times.

McAninch &> Anderson Little Rock ARCHITECTS Arkansas Present Business Rise Unexplained European Purchases Act| ually Less |Mow Than a I Year Ago ; H.v MORGAN M. BEATTY i AP Feature Sen-ice Writer WASHINGTON — The national "income of the American people will top the G8-billion.dollar mark this year. That's about four billions ahead of (he net income for 1938. ihe unemployed at the end of the year will number about 8,000,000—or less than they've been since the slock market crash of 1929. That income is far short of the (10-billion-dolIar economic millenhim desired by President Roosevelt. And the unemployed are still four time.s as numerous as they were in 1929. But there has been a sharp upturn —better than most economists dared to expect before the -European war came along. Jusf 'Bud Memory' j Why the sharp improvement? Did j the war do it? i You'd be s lot closer Co the truth 1 if you charged it up to a bud memory. That's the conclusion of a large group of government economists. The European war could not be the direct cause of our economic improvement, because our trade with Europe has shown little increase since the war began. European countries were doing a lot more business with us last year about this time. Our 1939 prosperity—or what passes for it—can be attributed to our own fall buying spree that began with the war. and is not ended yet. Nearly everybody had a vague notion that the war produced inflation and high prices. You call that war psychology. Everybody thought, he'd buy at low prices, and sell dear later on. Prices did .go up for a short while but then they went down again for there was no actual shortage of anything. Yet people are buying at present prices for months in advance. Apparently they are counting on something to shove our economy into high gear within a year or so. Maybe they're right. Anyway the fteel mills are running at 90 per cent of capacity, and business generally is humming along at. around the level of 1929. I!IM a I'oor Example | But Ihc memory of the World War years has not served us right. For there wa.s no immediate upturn j in ISU4. In fact, there was a down- \ turn for .several months, and it was I almost a year before the war spurt ] kited the nation into an upward econ- j omic spiral.
