Th d Referendum Whether or noi\ the federal government's cotton production control program and the Bankhoad act are responsible, Mississippi county fann- ers this year received ihe largest cash return from cotton since way back .yonder before world depression and mounting surpluses knocked the props from under prices. What the farmers of this county think about it will he reflected in the vote tomorrow on continuation of the Bankhead act. Without particularly liking the Bankliead act or the wny it has been administered .and without any firm conviction' that it. is sound from the standpoint 'of long time policy, the cotlon, growers Of this 'particular part of th« cotton bolt arc i;omg to cast their votes for 12-ccnl collon and agaiiihl G-ceiit cotton, and for $dO seed and against ?10 seed. That the cotton growers of any other part of the belt will take a different attitude is hardly believable. The farmers of the South arc • nol "going to vole against a,decent return for their labor and investment. The Bankhcad act will be upheld in Friday's referendum. That, in connection with the government's already announced acreage rental program for 1935, will dispose of cotton , production control tor next year. It will not, however, provide a permanent solution of the prpbleiii. AjiirlJ from Hie injustices and irritations {tint seem to be inherent .in the Bankhead act there must be considered the fact that without the voluntary reduction program with its benefit payments if is doubtful if the Bankhead act would accomplish much toward control of production. Those benefit payments are not going to be continued in- delinitely. But the need for production control will continue. In l|, 0 vcm . ahead cotton growers must reach agreement among themselves on a sound and workable plan for the permanent control of production. New Racketeer Rises- the Po/son Gossiper The gossip \ s always with us—has been, no doubt, since the pyramids were almklin^ But^ it has remained OUT OUR ~~ for present-day America to put gossip on ft paying basis and make a racket out of an ancient failing. Kcportcrs for the New York World- Telegram recently dug up IICWH of one of the oddest busJncsscM over invented. They found that there arc in New York certain firms, some of which have brandies in other cities, which will circulate rumors for you, for a price; rumors about your competitor, about yourself, about j>ome individual —insidious whispers thai will .spread from mouth to mouth idl across the country, untraccable and unstoppable. They Ijavc trained operatives who go about circulating such rumors. Some of them pose as. hotisc-to-liotise salesmen, and drop their propaganda in the ears of housewives. Others- filter about through hole] lobby crowds and travelers in railroad stations, dropping a word here and there to help the cause along. Anybody, apparently, can hire (heir services. • * • One large corporation has lost thousands upon thousands of dollars because rumor-mongers have persuaded people that employes of the linn were suffering from leprosy. Another, has taken huge losses because it has been whispered about that the firm lias made big donations to the German Nazis. This sort of work has been found useful'in. labor troubles. A strike in a large Connecticut dly was broken by sly propagandists who .spread Hit- word that the union leaders were crooks. A middleu'cstern strike failed after gossip-mongers let it be known that the plant would be moved .lo another city if the strikers were victorious. * » I'lots of this kind are impossible to trace. The victims may work themselves to a (Va/x.le trying to spread the truth, without -success. For there is a perverse .streak jif human 'nature which makes many people believe such rumors tcnaciousjy, no matter how many denials are broadcast.' Yet it is only through refusal to take any stock in gossip that this vicious kind, of propaganda can jbe checked. ' . , .' The next time someone confidentially, tells, you that such-und-such a firm employs diseased persons to pack- i'se its goods, or uses poisonous or adulterated materials in its product, or contributes to Hitler's war chest, or follows an anti-CathoJic, anti-Jewish, or anti-Protestant policy—remember that someone, 'way oil' in the background, probably has an ax to grind. ' Someone is trying t u piny yu(] fol . ., sucker. Don't let him. do it. —Bruce Gallon.
