STEKI.E I'niteil Tress Stuff rurresiioiulenl WASHINGTON, April 4. lUPI- Southern conRressmen, angered by the government order for higher margin payments on cotton futures, today declared open warfare on Economic. Stabili/er Chester Howies and the OPA. % Bowles directed the OPA niul Agriculture Department to issue the order yesterday in a move designed to check speculative price increases on raw cotton and prevent a boost in low-price clothing. H cnlls foj higher and uniform margin requirements for traders buying cotton on a future delivery basis. Colton state senators charged that increased margin reciuircinents would ruin both small mills and small farmers. They said they would strike back with: 1. A right to liquidate OPA, or nl least curb Us powers, when legislation extending its life reaches the chamber. V.. An attempt to write into pending minimum wafic legislation a ban against "tampering" with present margin requirements. Some cotton bloc members said they understood Secretary of Agriculture Clinton p. Anderson signed the order reluctantly and only on specific orders from Bowles. They charged tlie economic stabilizer with "duress and coercion." Chairman Elmer Thomas. 15., Okla., of the Senate Agriculture Committee told reporters he would immediately push an amendment to the minimum wage bill which woukl . ture." prohibit "any interference" with i Rep. Stephen Pace. D., Oa.: ". . . margin requirements. He termed Nothing more than an attempt to Bowies' action "continuation of an break the price of cotton . . .

This Is probably n straw that may break tile back of OPA." Sen. Burnet R. Mnybank, D.. S. C.: "It will create a bad cilect on cotton farmers and .small mill operators when colton moves next fall." Sen. Allen J. Ellcnder. 13.. La.: "Bowles Is making it impossible for many of us to vole for extension ot [OPA without limitations on its powers, which we would like to do. ) Bowles Is making use of powers I say he hasn't p got." Sen. Theodore O. Bilbo, 10.. Miss.: "Bowles is considered the same as the boll weevil in Hie South, the only difference is in spelling the name. He's colton economic problem number one and .should be liquidated, put out of business as soon as possible. The small operator cannot put |ip $50 a bale, he's cornering the market." Sen. John H. Bankhcad. D.. Ala.: "Bowles has no power lo take such action ... If Secretary Anderson signed the regulation on the order of Bowles he was subject to undue duress '«nd coercion. The action cannot be taken without the approval of the secretary of ngricul- lay. but in Washington last month ' was shown the silver lining. Hep. Sumners Is "rctirlni;" to a more strategic theatre of war. The people of America have :» danger thai is common lo them all and a common duty to defend Ihemselvcs against it. This nation's hope for a bright future depends on a few fads being seen by a great many people at once. Americans can be depended upon for action at any time the truth is not hidden from them or distorted beyond recognition. Mr. Sumners will j soon start talking straight to them. Powerful Truths "I have walchcd whal my own generation . . . has been doing lo the grcalcsl system of democrallc government ever evolved through the processes of the ages." said Ihc veteran lawmaker. "Jly jgnor- ng principles und the lessons of history, accepting for our guid- ince Hie theories of men and political expedience, we huve made dependents of our citizens and vus- .sals of our slates. "liy concentration of power and drafts .on the Federal Treasury we now have n bewildering governmental agglomeration impossible of democratic control. Wasteful and Inefficient, by nature it Is the Instrumentality of favoritism, oppression and corruption. H is the destroyer of self-reliance, self-respect and .self-governing ability without which no people can remain free." Hut There's Hope- A public awakening will save this country from miv form or ly- ranny. Mr. simmers does not doubt this. 11,. said.
