(Ul')-Thirly southern ami mid-western congressmen asked Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace today for government action to lw).st»v the price of cotton seed and lard. They suggested three posslblli- * tics: BLYTJIRVILUO, ARKANSAS, WIWNKSDAY, JULY 20, Iflijfl 1. An export subsidy on cotton .seed oil nnd -lard. 2. Purchase and storage of cotton seed by the government. I :i. loans lo fanners on cotton! seed. | A meeting WHS to bo held Inter today by a committee of congressmen and representatives of Hie agriculture, stnte ami ti-ea.siiry departments lo formulate. a program Representative Stephen Pace (Dem., Oa.) said lie suggested that President Roosevelt use his pavers under section 22 of the AAA act . to plnce .1 quota on cotton seed oil imports. Representative H. p. Fulmcr (Dem., S. C.) said he suggested that the United States seek export markets for lard and cottonseed oil in Germany and Italy. Sales of these product,? to both nn- tlons have fallen sharply, he said. Pace said that, immediate government aid is needed to bolster the price of cotton seed, now about $11 a ton, compared with -a normal of $20 to $25 a ton. "The present price of cottonseed at the gin is ruinous to farmers," Fulmei' said. 'They might as well haul I he seed away and' dump it. The present price will not pay for the ginning of a hale of cotton." Southern congressmen are interested in the lard program because tlie price of 'cottonseed and peanut oils— lard substitutes— are al- fected by (he supply and price of lard.
