Cotton Price and Cotton Acreage A Mississippi correspondent of n Memphis ncwspiipci 1 says Hint Ui2 United Stales government anil the federal fitnn hoard must take the Mime for thu present low pric? of cotton and tliu consequent tlifl'icultic'si of .southern farmer:, because ;ill tlie government mid the farm board would hitve lo do lo bring tlie price back to a prolitiibh level would be to loan 15, or 18, or 20 cents a pound on colton. Well, of course Uncle S:im has or could get enough money to buy all of this year's crop at 18 or 20 ccuis n pound, but it doesn't lake much foresight to scr how disastrous (o the cot- Ion grower such n policy would be in the long run. The root of the cotton grower's trouble is that lie lias been growing more cotlon than the world has any use for. The situation has be;n aggravated by the world-wide economic depression, but the only remedy available lo the American cotlon farmer is to bring his production in line with Ihe amount of cotton for which thsre is a i:nirket at a profitable price. Last spring the farm board mill other agencies, knowing Ihe cH'cut that even an average crop would have upon the price, urgid acreage reduction. Results , -p'.ere negligible. Cotton growers arc r paying the penalty now, but there ie . at least hope that a valuable lesson is 'being learned. It is inconceivable that after selling this year's crop at 'from nine lo eleven cents n pound farmers will plant a big acreage in 1931. The difficulty thai ninny will cxprrience in borrowing money alone should be enough lo bring about a substantial reduction. The result should be a very substantial improvement in agricultural conditions throughout the south. Not only is there hope that iisxt year's crop will be small enough to demand a fair price, but there is assurance that land formerly planted to cotton will be diverted to fond and fowl crops which will afford protection against economic disaster no matter what the price of cotton may be. On the other hand, were the government, by a simple gift from lh& public BLYTHBV1LLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS treasury, to establish and-maintain a profitable price for cotton this yt'ar there would be liltle hope for acreage reduction next year and every assurance of iin even greater cotton HUJ- plus. Obviously it would bo impossible for Hie government lo continue year after year to buy cotton at more than it is worth, and withdrawal after a year or two of government support of Ihe market would bring about the most tremendous and tragic crpsh the cotton producer has ever seen. Lor'.s cotton, better cotton, more food and feed crops hold the solution of the difficulty ami the key, if not to imniedi- a,le prosperity, al least to a safe and comfortable 1'nriii living. Industrial Farming All tlie world, anil particularly farmers all over the world, will watch with interest'the experiments in industrialized agriculture which are being made in Soviet Russia. The glimpse of a 5511,000 acre "wheat factory" given by Kugcn^ Lyons in his article from Moscow today is startling, to put it mildly, and the implications which it holds for small scale farming may prove extremely serious. Of course Hie Russian experiment is conducted mxlsr conditions that exist nowhere else in tlie world, but if the big soviet state farms succeed, as their . .sponsors predict, in producing wheat and oilier farm products at costs far below any hillurto known, the small scale producers of crops adaptable to large scale production are going to> find themselves faced with the necessity of radical readjuslmcnls.

Under this policy of course, American Interests have thrived on the island and we now have Investments there amounting to considerably more than a 'billion dollars. The Plat Amendment Cuban-American relations have had ns their prime Tudor the fn- nious Plait Amendment. Congress, enacted that In 1901 as an amendment to the army appropriation act an Article HI of tlie amendment I Is the one which always gets talked about when there is talk of tr6u- b!o In Cuba. It says: "The government of Cuba consents that the United Stales may exercise, the right lo intervene for the preservation of Cuban independence, the maintenance of n government, adequate for the protection of life, properly, aiitl individual liberties, and for discharging the obligations with respect to Cuba Imposed by the Treaty of Paris on Ihe United Slates, i-.w to be assumed nnd undertaken by (lie government of Cuba."
