'TWI> Recommendations offered ••Therefore we recommend the following methods: -Kirsl: That the present regulations remain In force, providing $4950 loan to the producer, if he | has .storage facilities thnt will meet Hie approval at the Gogernincnl, and provided further tlmt the cottonseed meets the specifications as to the moisture awl (ice-fatty acid content. We feel that if the producer hns the privilege ot hauliiiK his cottonseed home, or placing it in other Government - provided storage, he is protected nsninst a too wide a spread being used by the cotton glimer. "Si'cond: We recommend thai the Commodity Credit Corporulloi support the price of cottonseed oi and cottonseed meal to the oi mills at sufficient height to allou the mills to pay at least 90 pei cent of parity for the cottonseed \\'H reel tills can be done by a loan program with the oil mills, o a direct subsidy to the oil mills the exact method, of course, would be determined by the Commodity Credit.

It is very possible that w« could have quite a large, sudden decline In the cottonseed product** market. It is our sincere desire to work with and assist the Department of Agriculture In working out their problems with first-hand Information, so as to prevent any embarassment because of unsatisfactory methods in administration of the cottonseed support program "We sincerely urge that you discuss this matter with the yfyer authorities and do your utmtt to bring about the change in think ing to corresixmd with our recom mendation."

They've picked time and place, and they've planned and saved for months. That's the American way-the way of free choice —so familiar we take it for granted. A man picks his job, leaves it freely for a better one. He chooses the town he'll work in, the house where he'll live. He saves or spends as he wishes, with only his income and his wife to dictate to him. It's not that way everywhere. In some countries, the government puts a man in a city, a house, a job, with no choice in the matter. He can't quit, leave town or move around the corner without permission. If he gets a vacation, he is told where and when to go. The government runs everything, the people nothing. That's what happens when a free people turn over their responsibilities to their government They also turn over their freedom of choice. Socialism is the result. How does Socialism happen? Not overnight. It is woven slowly, a thread at 3 time, into the bonds of slavery. Little by little the government assumes powers other than governing—until it finally assumes all power. In this country, the government has already entered the electric light and power business—and is aiming at medicine, steel, railroads, and other industries. That is how Socialism got iti start in other countries. Talk to your friends and neighbors and see how they feel about thi» creeping Socialism that threatens your way of life.
