Smith • for submission to llio stocnnif com. miltoc of the Governors 1 ' Sotillnvido ; Conference nt Memphis tomorrow. ; Tim plan is one of tunny that .will \>u (li.seiis.svil before' Ihuil iigrecmenl is ; reached on a prugi-iirn to take I lie place , of emergency measures now in effect. ; It seems to us to Imvc ccrtitin very ; decided advantage's over other plans • that have been made public. There is . no doubt, ;i!.so, Ijtit that it falls sliort of perfection. Our point here is that control of cotton production is a problem that ; ought to luivc the most serious iind • thoughtful Attention of all cotton pro- : duccr*. It seettis clear that the ninjor- • ily of southern farmers, while by no ( means iinilcd in their approval of the ; Baiikheatl law, recoginV.E the need for some form of production control. , If they can reach agreement, on a prac- "ticiil plan of control they will have no trouble in getting it. It is Die announced policy of the administration .to give the producers what they want. If they can't agree (hey mu.wgcl anything or nothing. . The Courier News is very strongly of the opinion thai no control phin will solve the cotton fanner's difficulties unless it is accompanied by .•such modification of our tariff laws aa will permit a revival . of our foreigri- irade in cotton. But nt the snnie' time we believe that intelh'gent. control of production may profitably accompany lurid' revision. We need broader markets most of all, but under no circumstances is there any sense in producing more cotton than the available markets will absorb ,-it a fair return to the producers. In this connection ; one great virtue of Mr. Smith's plan is. thai its declared purpose is stabilization' of the price of cotton at a level not so high as to constitute a harrier to foreign sales. That may seem (o ' close the door to any possibility of . fat profits for cotton producers, but it ; is essential to survival of the cotton in• (lustry. The Courier News would welcome, as would Mr. Smith, criticism of his plan and .suggestions for its improvement. OUT OUR WAY No Sale Jvy W. Crawford, representative- elecl from Mississippi county in Ihc Arkansas gcjieral assembly, called yes- (erdny to register a Rood nalured protest against the implication, which he thought he saw in this column Monday, that in accepting the hospitality of I 'resident V .C. Kn.v.s of Arkansas State college, Jciiieslioro, on ;i trip to (lie Army-Illinois football \>umv la-l week, he was selling out (he I'.winiun schools, M is said by cynics Hint, every until has his price, \V (; won't argue ibid i|Uestion. lint we are sincerely sorry if we gave anyone the 1 impression that we thought Major Crawford could | ( e bought for. an automobile ride and an opportunity (o see two football teams scramble about in ihe rain jiud jniid. As a matter of fact we regard .Major Crawford's integrity and sincerity of purpose as above reproach or (|ii<-st»)it. The idea we were attempting to get across in our bungling fashion was that Mr. Kays was not carrying ii iloxen members-elect of the Arkansas general assembly to Champaign because of his lovu for them but because of the power they will have over the purse strings of the state treasury, upon which his school is largely -dependent. There is nothing particularly reprehensible about that but at least it ought to he uniler- siond. Labor War Averted Tlio (.'.\culleiH survicofi which fiti ol'- lioial orgam/.Mtion |j|<c> the National l.almr Uehtlions Board ciiti rwidcr arc I'.xcrtiplilictl in the handling ol' the dif- licultics between the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Co., and its Cleveland em- ployes. A labor dispute in Cleveland caused the company, to close its stores there completely. It announced that il was withdrawing from Cleveland for good; one immediate result was the disem- ploymeiit of some 2,000 workers. The labor board got busy promptly. A peace plan under which neither side sacrifices any material point has been snbmiUled, the talk of a light to the finish has died down and what might very easily have : <levctopcd into a serious iniUon-wide labor ivar has been averted.
