But if it or .something like it is necessary to assure the producer a fair return for his labor and his investment it is justified. As to the improved condition <if (he cotton producer there win be no argument. All but unanimous testimony is that cotton has been produced at a profit this year. As to tho reasons for this improvement k .there is room for dispute. Dollar devaluation, improvement in the general business situation, the voluntary acreage reduction program and ;: (he drouth all had something to do with higher cotton prices. The fundamental reason, however, was t.haipl\ ieduced piothiction, iind we are inclined to believe that it was the' BcWkhcad act «,ts largely responsible.

Pfqblem in Popularity The pi'csejit |)olitica! campaign is one of tlje oddest in our annals. Not the least odd .part about it is that practically everyone concedes that the administration will suffer no appreciable loss of strength in (he mid-term elections—while, at the same time, the Literary Digest poll sliqws 11 very miirked decline jn the popularity of the president's policies. These Digest polls have been, so far, pretty accurate reflectors of popular sentiment. The latest one shows that while the New Deal enjoyed the support of nearly 70 per cent of the electorate last spring, it now gets only a 50-50 break. One would supppse that sucji a shjft in sentiment would iiml expression in the congressional elections. But no political expert has predicted that such will be the case. On the contrary, the admii.nslratiQn'y , strength, in .Cpii- . gross is expectdd' to diminish -loss tfian 1 is usual iit the niiitterm point. ' ' How ar.e you going to solve this contradiction'?
