Cotton In America As one local man put it this mom- ing, the widely heralded "confidence in cotton" conference at Ni\v Orleans Monday accomplished "everything it could, which" was nothing." That is, it accomplished nothing of any immediate effect upon the present cotton market. That it \s*ill have no future benefit upon the situation we would bo the last to say. At the very least it was the occasion for the reiteration of some worth while truths. As Mr. Williams and Mr. Lcggc said, as long as the growers of this and other countries produce more cotton than the world will use there is no hope of a profitable price. We must teach the world to use 'more cotton, or we must produce less cotton, and pending some .substantial success along ths former line we will be very wise to make ccr-, . tain that the crop next year is small enough to insure reduction of the carry over. To bq SUP?, acreage reduction is in a • : sense a defeatist policy. If accepted as a permanent program it means the ^gradual surrender of the world's cotton trade to other countries. Bui, as Mr. L?gge has told the wheat growers, unless American farmers can produce as' cheaply as foreign growers their only hope of economic salvation is to curtail their production to a point where they can retreat behind tlui protection of the American tariff wall. Thq situation, then, is this: American cotton growers must cut their production next year as a means of reducing the surplus. And for the yeara to cbriief tiny must prepare either to -meet foreign competition or abandon foreign markets. Because American standards and American costs arc higher than those of foreign-^cotton producing counties the situation may seem hopeless. It is not necessarily so. American agricultural producers of export commodities are under a handicap because of our tariff system, and there is no hope of early relief in that direction, but it is doubtful if the handicap is one that cannot b'c overcome by American intelligence and efficiency. Many, high cost American industries m;et and beat foreign competition. The way for the cotton - grower to> achieve similar success is not . to grow more acres of cotton, or even more cotton, but to grow more and bet- tcrcotixm per acre at a lower cost per pound. The man who can do that is not the man whom world competition and world surpluses are going to drive out of tho cotton business. If enough American farmers can do it there will bo little caus:i for concern over America's position in the cotton trade. | SIDE GLANCES By George Clark A Fortunate Error We hope there arc no cynics among our readers to lacking in faith as to suspect that the governor of Arkansas told a little white HJ to get himself out of whatever difficulty may have been involved in tho Republican .stale central committee's suit to keep his name off tho election ballot. When it WHS first brought to light that the governor had reported expenditures in excels of the legal limit, you will remember, tho governor and his frbnds said, they had been under the impression tl:o limit was $6,000, .not $5,000. Hut before the suit was actually (iled the governor went over his accounts and found that he had actually spent §4,950.i!5, instead of the $5,950.35 which he reported. An error, certainly, that any man might make, especially if he had been under the impression the legal limit was $6,000, not ?5,000. Well, Arkansas is to have tha governor of her choice, and Mr. Osro Cobb might have saved himself some trouble and possibly a little expense if he hadn't tried to ball things up. But we will say for Osro thai he at least has given the people of the state an understanding of how utterly meaningless and; worthless a thing our corrupt practice act is S-WL_ Mfe ^f/^^A ••"i *fv" Z£^&.& ..

Schools and Taxes Kent, a little Ohio town of 5,000 population, is threatened with a school situation similar to our own. For the past live years the schools there have derived §40,000 per year, about one third of their revenue, from a special mill tax.. Now an effort is being made to prevent the renewal of this extra FrUiuls of the schools point out that tax. failure of the tax will mean reduction in the number and quality of the teachers and a shortening of the school year. "It is untlunkabfo that a progressive community such as Kent would take any such backward step," says the local newspaper. Rut even without the extra ?4G,000 a year the schools of Kent, a city about one half Blytheville's population, would still have a revenue equal to or slightly larger than that of Blytheville's schools. Does it seem strange, then, that our school revenues-, under the present assessment and tax rate, are less than sufficient to provide the standard of training appropriate for the children of a progressive, community such as Bly- Uievillc.

OVER — \vooo • - \vooo •an^o ed States thought was a very flue thing and which those who wantol to maintain their export markets felt was pretty terrible. Lately there has been uullt- vy a theory that when Soviet Russia hedges wheat on the Chicago market or exports a surplus or Engages In any other legitimate. tyis- Iness activity she Is committing-an International crime, and that it is more heinous than it would be if any other nation did Ihc sanie thing. Both In America and Europe this theory has been propagated by (hose who believe .that if Uus- sla could be stopped from cxport- Ing anything there would be that much more export business and domestic, sales for Ihc other countries. ' The other vttltudc, shared by equally hard-headed business men Is that, Russia is a good customer. Is going to be a better one -iiu that there Is no sense in socking a good customer in the nose. 1'mises Soviets General Motors, ll'.e world's largest exporter, appears lo have gone the whole hog In favor of encouraging Russia through an eiithus- iasiic pronouncement In I'aris by James D. Mooney, vice president r.nd manager of Its export business. While Secretary of Agriculture Hyde and leaders in such industries as lumber, coal and manganese were shouting about, the Red menace In unison with America's most, distinguished rcd-baiLcrs, Mooney was on a 4000-mile excur- ion Into Russia to find out what vas really going on. He emerged ecstatic, urging recognition of the Soviet. He Ouiied hat Russia wns trying to demoralize world trade by dumphv.-. The Soviet government is stable as any government in the world, Mooney says, because the Russian people arc ciHhiiswsU- cally supporting Us strong centralized authority. He predlc'.cd complete success lor the famous Five Year Plan. "Life in Russia today is vital j and dynamic with real purpose."' Mooney Is quoted as saying. ' The Russians are a people with nhom we have much in common. The two nations are, free from entanglements that induce dccpseal- ed hatreds. Both have broad horizons that induce a vision o! Ihc future: neither of us is alrn;d tu take a chance. Aim at Same 1 'Otr methods ot approach may be different, b'.it it strikes me that both ol us arc aiming at the- .

H is quite possible to get along without the thyroid gland, smci some of the other glands of tlie body will take up the functions, and since thyroid can be given in tablet, form.

"Artificial Eye" Next Step, Edison Declares MENLO PARK, N. J., (UP) — Thomas A. Edis-.n believes that an artificial eye" vil be developed by science that will be capable of penetrating the legs that blind present day fliers. Edison, while receiving his first ground school lesson in aeronautics from Assen Jordanoff, airplane designer recently, asked many questions about blind flying and fog. "Thus far we have converted sound into light and light into sound. There Is no reason for onr not being able to solve ilia artificial eye," said Edison.
