"There remains a net dispnrily in labor costs between the tjnilefl Stales and the balance of the world which places our workers at a tremendous disadvantage ns they compete for their fobs against foreign textile workers," he snid. "We must use our every effort to protect these workers and thett 1 washes by prohibiting the irns>or- tation of cheap textiles and if necessary subsidizing our exports "Neither American raw cotton nor its major products are capable of meeting world competition.
