BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLV—NO. 120 Blytheville D»i]y New* Blythevilk Courier BlythevUle Herald Mississippi valley I THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1949 Salesmanship Urged to Sell Europe Cotton She Needs TEN PAGES Europe Can Use Staple, Broker Says The people of Europe not only can use, but desperately need, more chiton. That's what Caffey Robertson, Memphis cotton man and president of the Memphis Chamber of Commerce, told Blytheville Rotariaus and more than 100 guests yesterday when he spoke on international aspects of cotton marketing. Mr. Robertson recently completed a tour of Europe with E. D, White, ECA officer in charge of cotton exporting. He made the tour with Mr. White and other officials as a representative of the Natioual Cotton Council. Tn speaking on the broad cotton picture, Mr. Robertson, hEmself a cotton exporter, said the International market was available but "needs salesmanship to develop." Kales man ship Needed Mr. Robcrtsoi. pointed out that cotton is a surplus crop. "It is expected the cotton surplus this year will approach 5,000,000 bales," he said. Increased consumption, he pointed out, is the only answer to "these surpluses which will continue to grow now that wartime consumption has been reduced." "The average European uses only one-fourth as much cotton as the average American. This proves the market already exists.'It is up to us to see that, our cotton reaches the market," Mr. Robertson stated. lie said American cotton Is not only needed but desired above that grown elsewhere. "That It Is important we develop this foreign market is evidenced by the fact that Europeans, generally, are anticipating the end of Marshall plan aid, "They are afraid that when the day comes the United States quits pouring relief into their countries, they still won't have the necessary amount of hard American dollars with which to buy our cotton. "Therefore, they are expanding their rayon producing facilities. Soon they expect to produce rayon In such quantity as to fill half their need for fabric which ordinarily would be cotton. "In connection with getting and developing this overseas market, I think the National Cotton Council l;dV. aoiie an excel' ^il jo'u . "I fllso believe the Council Is the mosl valuable inedi jm -,ve have for establishing better rout tict ivHh. those foreign markets we need so badly." HOOVER SPEAKS—Former President Herbert Hoover, observing his 75th birthday anniversary, speaks from the rostrum in Frost AmpJii theater on Stanford University campus at Palo Alto, Calif., where hi spoke on the future generation.—(AP Wirephoto). *• Cotton Irrigation Tests Hold Interest for Missco Growers A demonstration on cotton irrigation will be given at the Cottoi Branch Experiment Station at Ma nanna, August 25, and agricultun , leaders from Mississippi comity arc expected to be on hand lor u, Tom Clark Gets Committee Okay Senate's Judiciary Grouj> Approves Texan For Suprejne Court WASHINOTdN^Aug. „ The Senate Judiciary Committee todD S' r«ommeiided confirmation Mr. Koliertson pointed out that | of Attorney General Tom C Clarlt •'• '" t« be an associate justice of the Supreme Court. The vote was 9 to The committee also recommended—9 to 0—the confirmation of Senator J. Howard McGrath (R- RI) to b« attorney general succeeding Clark. Chairman McCarran (D-Nev) at first declined to say who voted against Clark. Later he told reporters that Senator Donnell (R- Mo) and Ferguson (R-Mich> op- [Kised confirmation. McCarran said he would report the committee action to the Senate at once but would not ask unanimous consent required to net upon the high court appointment today. Unless some other senator noes this, and it is accepted, there will be no Senate action on the matter until Monday. tbe cotton situation was not nearly so bad as "some of my remarks might lead one to believe. "Cotton is still the best figer the •world has. That the demand abroad exists is proven by the fact that Europe's per capita cotton consumption is far below that of the United States. "laicreascd consumption through development of that overseas market should go far toward bettering the ills of our surplus cotton malady. I believe that with the aid of the National Cotton Council we fan reach that market In trie near future." he declared. Britain's Labor Regime Weakens In commenting on his observations of European countries. Mr. Hobertson said. "Warsaw is "Exhibit A" of the horrors of war and of communism, A Polish textile plant 1 visited was running 24 hours a day with very poor machinery which needed replacing.

Martin WASHINGTON, Aug. 12—<#>)— The price advantage farmers have njoyed since late 1941 may turn ito a disadvantage within a few :iontha. So predicted Agriculture Deparl- nent economists today as they eyed ncreusing supply of pork due to lit butcher shops In a month or o. These seasonally Increasing sup- ilies of farm products are cxpect- d to pull down prices of many roducls. The department has a standard or measuring farm prices, This tandard Is called "parity." Wlien prices are at the level of this itandar c i they are deemed lo be squally fair to the former and hose who buy his products. Part of Trend In Die decade before the wnr. the consumer had all tlie better of it, Farm prices averaged below parity —in facl, down to 50 per cent of iarity in 1933, The war, with Its iiercased demand for food .pulled 'arm prces upward. In December 1941, Ihe farmrs 1 long disadvantage turned into a slight advantage Month by month the farmers' favorable position grew and. grew, until price ceiling brought a halt. Bui removal of price controls after the war permitted further increases. By October, 1040, fanners' prices reached a record peak of 33 per cent above the parity level. Then as postwar world shortages began I to disapixmr, farm prices started downward. Last month's level Is the lowest since December, 1911. OfliciaU expect prices to (nil below the piuity point by late fall if present croii production prospects are borne out Sonic products have been selling for much than months, imrlicularly parity the ' for , potatoes, dairy products, eggs, col- ton, and oilseeds. These prodtuan have been bringing less than the so-cnllccl fair level largely because they are available in over-supply. Others— meat animals In particu- tlian parity and more lha:; the general farm price level. They, in the main, are products which jre still short on demand. The latest price .survey showed for example, that beef cuttle were bringing prices 85 per cent above the party standard, hogs 38 pel- cent above and lambs 10 per cent above.

(AP)—Soviet Russia denounced the Yugoslav government today as an enemy of the Soviet Union and charged that Premier Marshal Tito's regime more and more Is throwing in Its lot with the west. This sweeping Soviet attack, made public by file Moscow radio, was ontained In a Russian note to Yugoslavia. The note stated Hint Tito's regime as early as A]>rll, 1947, had 'icon willing to abandon its basic laims for Austrian territory as ompcnsation for war losses, but Barfield Child Stricken With Poliomyelitis A two-month old child, Jeannette Sanders, daughter of Ella Sanders at Barfield, was taken to the University Hospital yesterday as this county's l^; l ,h' poliomyelitis victim. The 135 count, however. Includes three sent from this county, but who later were found to be resi- dnts of other counties. Another suspect was examined yesterday at the North Mississippi County Health Unit, and although all the symptoms were present a spinal tap showed a negative test to polio. Mrs. Annabel Fill, North Mississippi County Health Nurse said that Miss Polly Wilson, a medical social worker, would arrive here tomorrow and would assist with selection of a location for the Crippled children's Clinic to be conducted here In September. The complete plans for the clinic have not been determined. 8 New Pemljcol Caws CAIUJTHERSVrLLE. Mo., Aug. 12 „ ._ — Dr - s - B.

Aug. 12. -Rail & ~ Weathe Arkansas forcrasl: I'arlly cloudy tonight and Saturday. A few widely scattered afternoon thundershowers. Not much change In temperatures. Missouri forecast: Partly cloudy, warmer and humid tonight and Saturday: except local thundershowers tonight and early Saturday morning. Minimum this morning—12. Maximum yesterday—98.

This is calculated to cost the nation's shippers around S293 million a year. But in some quarters there Is doubt as to whether the shippers will pay all of that to the railroads Kach time rail rates have been hiked since the war—they have gone lip a total of 57 per cent for a total of S3 billion a year in additional revenue—a few more shippers have turned to other means of moving goods. It's no accident that you see more and larger trucks and heavy freight trailers on the highways. It's not just nostalgia or a flair for the romantic and picturesque that ha.s increased the number and schedule of barges on the nation's waterways. Nor Is it just happenstance thai has put more freight cargoes into the alrlanes—shippers find that airfreight, rates are moving Into competitive range with rail freight rates, especially In cases where speed of delivery enters Into It. And there now are more miles of oil and gas pipelines In the country than there are miles of rails, Rail Shipping Off At the time the Interstate Commerce Commission was announcing the latest rate Increase, for an average of about four per cent, the Association of American Railroads was releasing Its latest carloading figures, showing them currently 18,4 per cent below a year ago and 20.8 per cent below two years ago. For the year so far the railroads have been loading an average of 94.000 fewer cars each week, than In the same 31 weeks last year. Offsetting the extra S293 million a year the railroads expect to get from the .atest hike, plus the W91 million from a rate Increase this year, the roads arc going to be tapped for nn estimated $380 million a year in additional costs as » result of the 40-hour week, which goes Into effect next month. The roads are expected to do something about truck competition. Hall circles say that In some cases rates will be lowered rather than raised, In an effort to lure lost customers back. Already, In the New York milk- shed, rail rates on carrying milk have come down 27 per cent. It was reported at the time that the roads Poolc, 8. Hayti; Cnim. 7. Steele. and Betty Sue A total of 57 cases of polio have been reported to Ihe County Health Office.
