Hundreds of thousands of farmers who haven't known the look of money for vears suddenly find liiemselves paving debts, btu'ins new clothes.

But this difference is important: To eat the government ice cream I and cake this lime, the farmer i has to cut his production. | Ma Nature Steps In The hope is. of course, that by , the time cotton land is cut to 25.- -. 000.000 acres (10.000.000 were lop- | prd off this vearl. cotton prices will rile enough, due to, scarcity, I so (he price need no !on'-'er be held | up at the taxoovers' expense. j No.v the joker in all this is. that . despite the plowine under of 10.- | nflO.OM) acres of 1933. the cot ion \ former raised nracticallv as much j cotton ps he did in 1M2. ! That was Old Ma Nature again. T'ne average yield per acre this: year was 209.4 pounds as compared : io a 10-year average of 167.4. I Yet from Texas to Georgia, they ' (ell you this: "If the ploughing up ] had not bsen done, there would ; have been such a terrific yield this j year, nnd such a crushing surplus. | that cotton would have fallen below 5 cents a pound, and the! south would have been absolutely i and utterly ruined!" I : As it is. the south is the most! - iicarlv prosperous of any section of the country. You meet the evidences everywhere. Prosperity Is Found A salesman covering rural towns in northern Alabama told me stores had been buying which had almost empty shelves. At Auburn. Ala.. D2 per cent of the crop production loans already have been paid back. A 15-year-old boy in Birmingham, just in from tlie fields, tells you, "I never seen so manv new overalls and shirts In all my life!" And all this monev comes back almost immediately to the cities. At Macon. Ga.. J. C. Penney, chairman of the board of the .1. C. Penney stores, will tell you that increasing business rapidly ' is absorbing the added expenses made necessary by NRA. Southern Stores l.rad His southern stores lead all his olhcrs in sales—lhat gives a hint of what is happening to the "cot-j ton money." Retail sales here lo:i the country in a belter than 15 per cent rise over the holidays. Bank clearances here have been incica'ing steadily since March.
