Paul C. Jones of Kennett, member of the House Agriculture Committee, took part, he said that the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the Treasury opposed selling America's surplus cotton on the world markets on the grounds that it would be injurious to the economy of other nations selling cotton r on the world market at lower to work for the company, pricee. "We had better begin taking care of ourselves," he added. Declaring that "the farmer is slowly losing his position in the economy," he said that the farm problem must be faced and solved with a workable plan. He indicated that while Secretary State Police closed the New Castle foundry at the height of yesterday's violence. Three persons were wounded inside the plant, five others outside. State Police Capt. Robert Dillon was hit on the head by a rock. A police shelter structure was set afire. After the plant was evacuated, Dillon said enough guns were confiscated inside to cover four tables. At TJAW-CIO headquarters in Detroit, the union insisted all the shots came from inside the plant However, Capt. Dillon said three or four or' the dozen shots were fired by the shouting demonstrators on the outside.

Benson had announced that he would reveal a new agricultural program in January, the situation was so grave that many farm leaders were pressing the Secretary to disclose his plan now "so they fiould study it" before the 1956 crop Tear starts. The Senator, admitting that he Hid not have an answer to the problem yet, hinted that the "two- price" plan for cotton support might have some merit. In this plan the price for cotton used within the nation would be sold at or near parity prices while the surplus would be placed on the world markets at lower prices to compete with the nations in which the standard of living is not as high as in the United States. He said he is open to suggestions for any plan that "would protect ourselves and dispose of our surpluses."
