..J>AGE EIGHT Let Industry Grow Big In Home Town Says Trust Buster BY WILMS TIIOHNTON N'EA Service Staff' t'orre.s|K>iulenl WASHINGTON. Pcb. 9.—"I'm so old-fashioned they think I'm a radical," , The ability to .make that half- humorons, half-plaintive appraisal of his own position marks Robert Houghwout Jackson off from many another reformer. And when it conies over Ihe huge desk of the New Deal's chief legal light, from a man currently credited with being the Roosevelt favorite as the lioosc- vclt successor, it is startling. Despite the vast paneled office, one size smaller' than Grand Central Station, you can scarcely imagine this man being pontifical or slii/Ty. But he is very much in earnest, not with the eager earnestness of a Tugwell, but with the (logged patience of a practical man wii.) knows that though "there's many a slip 'twixt the cup and Ihe lip," people will somehow manage lo drink. Keen Channel Clear What he means by oltl-fashloiwl Is simply this: .ln?k;TO! i;; a believer in the Woodrwv Wilson-Justice Brnminls school of'economic thought which reached its height 30 years ago. He believes that (lie federal government should not attempt dotail- . ed supervision and regulation of jlhe details of business us in NRA, but should simply keep clear the channels of competition, which, if obstructed, will provide n self-regulation that is much better, "This is the lowest.. decree of government control that business can expect," is the way that Jackson puts it. Out of fashion In 1933, this school of thought is gaining again, and Jackson has lod Ihe van in the assaults on monopoly and concentration of wealth which now dominate in Washington us ihey did in the davs of the first Roosc- ivelt and of Wilson. Ills Directorates Loral Tlie arrival, during those 30 years, of modem 'teclmoloey with 'Its trend toward "inevitable bigness," has not changed Jackson's .essential vieiv. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)

' ' .: All this from a man who Is a director cf the telephone company In his home town of Jamestown, N. Y. But note tills: it is a local telephone company, standing on ils own legs free of control by Ihc A. T. and T. He is director o'f The Bank of Jamestown, but it is a local bank, uninfluenced by chain or holding company. There is tlie key to Jackson. He is not against business, but merely against local business being dominated by outside financial interests. In his law practice in Jamestown he has represented banks. utilities, labor unions, and power .companies. A goo;l lawyer sets that assorted practice in a small town, and Jackson had the name , which will probably be voted upon by the Jiouse today, was prepared by the American Cotton Shipjiers association. Benefits No benefit payments for cotton are appropriated other than Hhose hitherto payable under the Soil Conservation Act, Tills means the benefit payments for the 1938 cotton crop will be about $100.000.000, or somewhat less than half the amount for the 1S3? crop, which included $130.000,000 appropriated at the last Regular Session of Con- Ikughwoiit Jackson derives his devotion lo home-town control of Industry from a home and family bicfcjiround solidly set in Jamestown, N.

Landlords, tenants, and sharecroppers receive Soil Conservation payments In proportion to their respective contributions to the carry- Ing out of soil conserving practice.?. No change in relationship between landlord ami tenant or share-cropper Is permitted to Increase the landlord's payments. There tire provisions to increase small payments by specified percentages and limit .payments to any one person U> $10,000, tills limitation not applicable however to 1838. Acreage Allotments On or before Nov. 15 for subsequent crop years, nnd within 10 days of enactment for the 1938 crop, the Secretary of Agriculture must proclaim the national cotton allotment. Tlie allotment will be the number of bales which, with the estimated carryover, will make available n supply equal to a normal year's domestic consumption and exports, plus 40 per cent. "For 1038, the minimum allotment Is fixed at 10.000.000 bales, plus an amount to give every county not less than 00 per cent of its 1937 acreage, which will bring the total to about 10,100.000 teles. Due to the large carryover thai will be on hand this summer, this practically sets the goal for the 1938 crop at 10,700,000 bales. Tlie national allotment is apportioned among the states on the basis of their productions for the five preceding years, with allowance for acreage diverted under previous . for production or products be consumed on the farm, 'n programs; and the bales allotment 7ile marketing penalties a for each state is translated into collected and remitted by U i acres by dividing it into the state average yield for the five preceding years. Two percent of the acreage allotment for each state Is available for farms not producing cotton the past three years. The remaining 98 per cent is apportioned to>the counties on the basis of acreage during the five preceding years. , The county allotments are distributed lo Individual farms on the basis of tilled acres, less acres diverted to wheat, corn, tobacco, or rice grown for market or for feeding livestock for market. Provision is made for favored consideration to farms having allotments of less than 15 acres and slill more favored consideration to farms having smaller allotments. Basing the allotments on tilled I acres, less acres diverted to wheat, corn, tobacco, or rice grown for market or feeding livestock for market, has been criticized on the grounds that II gives smaller allotments to farmers who have diversified than to farmers who have pursued a one-crop cotton production. Persons knowingly planting cot- tori in excess of their alloled acreage are ineligible for any benefit, payments. To secure payments, the applicant must swear tie lias not planted excess acreage; and, if the afflavit is false, he becomes guilty of perjury. Roilcau Amendment If milk cows in n county and on Individual farms exceed the normal uiimber, soil conserving crops plant- and livestock other limn dairy stock, unless the dairy product's arc consumed on ll\f. farm. The Secretary may forbid feeding to other livestock if conditions of competition develop which, In ),| s discretion, so warrant. Marketing Quotas and Penalties If the supply of cotton, composed of carryover on August 1st of any year and the estimated crop for that year, exceeds normal supply, I.e. domestic consumption and exports plus 40%, by more than 7%, the Secretary ot Agriculture must, proclaim marketing quotas. Tills proclamation must be issued within 10 days of enactment, with respect to tlie 1038 crop. For subsequent crops, it must be issued not, later than the 15th of the preceding November. Large stocks now existing assure that this provision would cause a proclamation of marketing quoins for the 1938 crop. Tlie marketing quota for each farm would be normal pro-Jiiction or the actual production, whichever Is greater, of the acreage allotted to such farm. In other words, finy cotton produced on allotted acres would be within the marketing quota. Upon proclamation of marketing quotas, a referendum o f cotton growers must be held, within 30 clays of enactment in the case of the 1938 crop, and not later than the 15th of the preceding December In the case of subsequent crops. The quotas become effective if over two-thirds of tlie votes are favorable. Marketing of non-quota cotton is subject to penalty of 2c per pound in the case of the 1938 crop and 3c per pound for subsequent crops. Any grower dissatisfied with his quota- may have it, reviewed by a local committee of three farmers appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture, provided he applies for review within 15 (lays after the mailing of the notice of his quota. Action of the review committee will be final as to the findings of fact, and growers may appeal to the courts only on questions of law. The marketing penalties are'lo be IIR buyer may pieserlbe.'.The Secretary Is directed to provide means for Identification to aid in ascertaining whether cotton Is within the quota. Federal.
