THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 1939 BLYTHEVILLB. {ARK.V COURIER NEWS Waldo Frazier Contend Capita! Is Cause 0 Decline HELENA, Ark., Aug. 24 (UP)Waldo Frazler, executive secretarj of l!ie Arkansas Pavin Bureau Fed siailon, believes Chis country's de dining cotton exports may . b Warned on the methods of Am ericati capital. "There Is striking similarity," h said, "between some of the reccn developments in cotton productta and trade and the changes wliici occurred in the beef Industry a Hie beginning of tlic century." Our money and our tcclinic ar supporting the cotton Industry Ii Brazil and Argentina, he said, am are now supplying the same Europ enn markets with cheap Soulh Am erlcan cotton to whom tliey one sold American cotton. "American gins and other equip ment are being widely used abroad Americans, trained in cotton ec onomy, are employed in key posi Hens. Exports by South Americai cotton producing countries have in creased from nn average of SO.GO teles a year during the 1923-3; period to 1,100,000 bales in !937 I Is interesting to note (hat two o the three largest South Amerlcai exporters are United States firms. Cotton machinery exports t< Brazil and Argantina tell the slorj of how we have aided our competit ors, Frasier said, "Cotton gins scattered ove South America may have Smit! American names but many nr owned and operated by'well knowi factors who make their head quarters in this country. The em ployment of our money down then is making R all the more difficul for this country to regain her fai: share of world cotton commerce. "The story of the lost beef ex ports is an old one. Rtllowing UK Civil War, that trade expandet enormously here and prodtictioi sa:n exceeded domestic consump tion. The result was a dcvelopmen of foreign outlets, first in tin form of live cattle and later, whei refrigeration became Improved, h chilled and' frozen beef. In 1901 351,003,000 pounds of beef wa: shipped abroad, mostly to area Britain."

Aug. 2J.-OIIC6 upon n lime Bcsloii harbor got all messed up with fresli Icn because the ^Ins-sachiisctls taxpayer figured he was being Imptsecl on, That hdpjwned n long time n$o, but (he Arn?sacliuse(t s taxpayer tins never gultc (ornatten it. And todny he Is on the warpath cnce more-tllsgulsKl this time, net as an Indian, but as un ultra-modem pressure group. All of which is by way of saying that the taxpayers here have found n way to make an eirecltve protest against the rising tax burden. They arc doing It through the Massachusetts Federation of Taxpayers Associations, Inc., which Is a pictty cumbersome litlc but. which stands for a smooth, efficient organization that has half the politicians In the state scared to death. As Its name implies, the Federation is a co-ordinating and ncllvln- licstess to n farewell bridge party at her home in Kennett Tuesday afternoon for members of her Tuesday Briilgcleers club of Cooler. She resigned from the club last week. AH members were present. Her hcme was very attractive in fall cut flowers. At bridge Mrs. Glynn White received high score prize, Mrs. Velmer Campbell second high and Mrs. Gits Cooper received the bridgco award. The hostess served cherry pie topped with whipped cream and iced drinks. Mrs. Moody Chipman was taken to the Walls hospital in Blythcvlllc-. Tuesday night and is still in n I serious condition. Her little four day old sen is gelling along- fine. Mrs. Chipman is the former Miss Virginia Moore, (laughter of Mr. and Mrs. j. L. Moore. Members of her family are with her. Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Stiles mid daughter, Alice, have moved into the C. C. Limbaiigh home at Cooler. They sold their home to the Pemls- cot Oil Co. and the company is to erect a filling station on the site. James Howard Southern, little son of Mr. and Mrs. Baxter Southern, was taken seriously 111 at "their liome in Steele Monday and was taken to the Baptist hospital in Memphis Tuesday where his condition is still unimproved. The na- lure of .his illness has not been learned, however he lias a hi"h lever. A seven-pmind daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Howard Ozmcnt last Thursday at their home near Ccoter. Mrs. Ozment is the former SIiss,,<Hetoti ;Fimderburk. ,'r.Misses^exa-and,Nelva Jean McCann or Matthews "were" 'd'lmiei- guests of Dr. and Mrs. L. E. Coope> at Cooler yesterday. ' '" Homer Waters returned lost night after n week's visit with relatives in points of North Carolina. He was accompanied by Mr and Mrs. U: j. Pitts and children, of Sharron, Teim. The condition of Mrs. Kate Chandler who is in the Walls hcspital is still critical Inff bcdy for n flock of local asso- clatlcns—nlxmt 200 of Ihem, right now, with (he number steadily rising. ALL FOR KCONOMV Eacli local association Is n voluntary organization of taxpayers who havfe combined their forces to do two things-investigate llielr local town or city government ami see where It can save incney, and see to It that the local representative in the state legislature' remains properly aware of the great virtue of economy. In the smaller places, all of the work «f such associations Is purely voluntary. Some -10 of (he larger ones maintain paid secretaries. And the ^deration itself—supported by Ihc subscriptions mid dues of the 200-odd locals—keeps a paid statf of 21 people on duly in Boston constantly. These workers concern themselves, first of all, with serullnlz-' ing till ponding legislative bills Each one of the 3000 bills filed In this session of the legislature wa studied, cftrelully to sec if it con tallied unytlihii,' that would boos taxes and, if so, if it was some tiling the state could do without. After study comes lobbying And here the Federation real! shines. It bns nn efficient, staff o legislallvc agents, for one thing More important, il has n sure-flr melhcd of stirring up trouble to a legislator back home. It keeps a most exhaustive set o records on votes. Every so oftei it will send to each of its member associations a table, showing ho\ the representatives from each dis trlct voted on each mcncy-spcnd ing bill, and showing also whcthe the Federation Itself was lor o ngalnsl that bill. The local paper usually print this table. In any case, the mem bers of the association get It, nn are urged to telephone, call on, o write to each legislator who vote for anything the .Federation dis approved of. I'HESSURE WHEUE IT'S NEEDED As a means of putting' on th pressure, this adds up to as nca a political device as has ccmc 01 the scene In a kngr time. It doe two tilings; it makes the taxpnyc tax-conscious, and it makes th legislator taxpayer-conscious. One of the Federation's pe projects is to have enacted a per cent sales tax for the linancin of relief costs. The money tlui raised would be distributed to th cities and towns on a basis of neec with the proviso that any cit which increased Its local budge ever the average for the last fiv years^would, suffer a.proportipnat ciit in' Its'" slitire of" the' sales' ta money.. .Tills bill has been twic clefented by the legislature, but'tti Federation is still hoping. Another pet project Is stream lining of the state government Norman MacDonald, executive di rector of the Federation, reccntl; announced that the group wouli study the possibility, of . reduchr the size of the-legislature, payln special. attention to •! the uni camoral system made famous )>' Nebraska.
