We would not be guilty of eliciting or defrauding our citizens who are our wards. Every cent of this bond issue money, if the bonds are voted, will go where it. is intended it should be spent This is something nobler, higher than politics, and when it comes to relief of the suffering there must be no politics."

Neither has as yet announced for re-election and 110 new candidates so far have nied petitions. average ol 30 hours per week for 3 year, and that S6.000.000 would be spent in Missouri for materials to be used In lhe conslruclion work A large number of Pemlsco county farmers looked their cotton ground over this week and were elated to find the 1934 crop peek ing its head through the soil in various spots of their fields. Those little cotton plants, whicl prior to this year .grew in such abundance in this section, ar pretty precious and scarce—to he many of the large landowners tat —and must be cultivated with the utmost care. Since the' government they explain, has stipulated almos exactly how many pounds of lin can be produced on an acre of lam cultivation this year must be han died very delicately—almost to the extent of sitting up nights with the' young plants. The tremendous task of signing up the various farms in the acre-1 age reduction program, which faced the county committee and its sub-committees, was not accomplished lo the satisfaction of all the cotton producers. In a plan of such j magnitude, handled In such short time by men who live here, it was expected that a few farmers would not receive what they might call a square deal. But • that "few" seems to have turned out to be almost a third, perhaps more, of the cotton proSucers in Pemiscot county. Too much power, they claim, was placed in the hands of the county committee— with practically no avenue offered through which an individuil cotton producer could fight for what he believed was right in his particular case. Why, they ask, Is one farmer allowed only 325 pounds of lint to an acre while his neighbor, who farms soil of virtually identical nature, is allowed 400 or 425 or more? Another point they want settled here and now is why one fanner who has. say, 160 acres of cotton land, is allowed to plant about 40 o- 50 acres, while another who has the same amount is allowed to plant 120. 130 or more acres to cotton. Discrimination is charged right and left, but there apparently is nothing those who allegedly got "hurt" can do about it. If an individual cotton producer didn't have the "right connections," they point °ut. his fate as far as the amount of cotton he can raise is concerned is entirely out of his hands. More Irouble Is anticipated when the government rent checks arrive.
