It is all very interesting, lint more than a little beside the point which is, or ought to be, that all Americnlis, regardless of residence, thirst, or political affiliation, are entitled by right and by the constitution to equality in the selection of congressmen, it' not in more important matters. There are rumors now that the rural statesmen will seek to block the roup- portionment because it will give increased political power lo the cities, that the drys are against it because it is likely to put more wets in congress, that both Republicans arid Democrats are wondering if it will prove good or bad from their particular partisan viewpoints. It is indeed a sad state of affairs in which we find ourselves if such considerations are. to govern. The reapportionment was made because the constitution demands it. If that is not reason enough there is the more fundamental fact that this nation is founded upon an assumption of political equality for all citizens. For reasons of expediency politicians may dislike to give equality of political power to supporters of their .Opponents, but without rejecting the. whole fabric o.f representative government they can scarcely re,fuse to, dp so.

Fighting the Farm Board The American Cotton Shippers association is reported to be raising a §100,000 "war chest" to finance a campaign for repeal or modification of the agricultural marketing act, under which the federal farm board operates. Such action on the part of the association is not subject criticism. It is the right of any group of American citizen who have the money to spend it honestly and openly in combatting legislation which they deem inimical to their interests. It ought to be understood clearly, however, that the proposed campaign is in behalf of the cotton shippers, not OUT OUR WAY the cotton growers or anyone b^e.', Whatever (he ultimate success or failure of the farm board's program for the benefit, of American agriculture, which is a mallei- largely for the fti- lure to reveal, it is ccrlnin that cotton growers have not sull'ered as ;i result of its operations. For one thing, :is a direct result of the hoard's activities, growers have lliis year received easli advances on cotton hi Id in anticipation of future market ad- Viincbs far above anything ever available in (he pa-l. In (he .second place, as Mr. Uiggi! pointed out the other day, un.salisfac- tory as is the present price of cotton it is true that the commodity has shown remarkable ccsi-.U anci! lo the depi'issing inlluenccs that have forced .stock market <jnotations, in many instances, to a •small fraction of the levels of little more than a year ago, and have driven prices of many other commodities far lower, relatively, than the price of cotton. There is no bread iuul butter for the cotton farmer in all of this, nor is it necessarily Inio that the farm board deserves much credit for preventing any further decline in the cotton market, but at least it sotms evident 1 that the board's activities have done no harm. The future may ytt show that they have done a good deal of good. |SIi)fi GLANCES By George Clark ue of Iron In the treatment ol sec- 'R.tii.1. Bl....

L WASHINGTON LETTER By KOUNEY DUTCHKK WASHINGTON, Nov. 20.- -If ,vou want to know what Washington has been Inlkinir nbom p-nrc "--n anything else lately—it's the Wick- ersnam coinmissiuji and me anticipated report on prohibition. The best available dope has been that a majority of commission members are willing lo suggest modification with light wines nnd beer, but that neither Chairman Wlckersliam nor President Hoover want any minority reports which wculd deprive the report of Unimpressive effect it would have if it were unanimous. Members of the commission, however, are not revealing enough outside to give anyone a very clear picture ol Just what Is going on behind the closed doors. Jud^e William S.
