Many agriculture leaders have seen it coming for years. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson wanted it instituted in 1953, but couldn't push the program to completion prior to planting time for acreage. This year, farmers plant- ( farm will be figured: This "ex- ed 19.9 million acres of their 21 j pert" says it will be a total of the i 1955 cotton allotment plus other Missouri million acre allotment. They are expected to get 17 million acres for 1955. Next year, they could face another reduction for 1956. depending on outcome of crops in 1954-55 and market conditions.

Still most farmers would rather live with cross- compliance than give up supports of the 80-90 per cent parity variety. More Cotton Cuts Seen The U. S. is neck deep in its surpluses and wheat and com are among the most plentiful. In 1952, wheat acreage was 78 million. It was cut to 62 million last year and is expected to be about 55 million for this next year. That seems a drastic cut except for the fact that only 19 million acres could provide all our needs plus those of our export customers. More cuts are forecast in cotton Commodity And Stock Markets- Ntw York Cotton Locally, County Agent Keith Bilbrey is of the opinion that farmers should plan carefully, taking full congnizance of advantages and disadvantages of livestock, hay and cover crops.

If this prediction (and it's only a prediction) turns out to be true, it would mean about 100,000 acres whic will be hunting a job next year in Mississippi County. In 1953. the county had 300.000 acres in coton and 180.000 in other crops. Its Lawrence Hassell Dies Suddenly; Rites Tomorrow Services for Lawrence Hassell. •,,- • 58, who died suddenly of a heart!

S. Senator. Sen. John L. McClellan won re- nomination by a thin 4,00-vote majority last Tuesday, defeating McMath and Paul Chambers of Helea. The former governor charged "that Paul Chambers' final vote is not as large as reports indicate he received in eastern Arkansas." McMath admitted "the returns are official" and that McClellan "avoided a runoff by the narrow margin of some 4,000 votes." He added, however, in his written statement, that the "reported irregularities" led him to believe that McClellan "received less than 51 per cent of the votes cast."

That would have cleared the way for a vote on Flanders' censure resolution, which most senators regarded as doomed. While McCarthy himself voted "present" on the rollcall, his sup porters joined in the move to set up a new investigation which seems likely to keep him busy for some time answering questions about his conduct of investigations, his personal finances and his attacks on other senators, government officials and former officials. McCarthy professed to be pleased good." Contending ''it is imperative we have a vote before we go home," McCarthy added: "This will give me a chance to get these fellows under oath'who have been making charges year after year. I sincerely hope they give me the right to cross-examine." He said he didn't see why it would be necessary to hear more than about eight witnesses, himself and seven senators who have assailed him.
