Why Production Musi He Limited Neither friends nor foes of production control measures as a menus of safeguarding agricultural prosperity give adequate consideration, we be• licve, to a phase of the problem which, in respect at least to cotton, is of decisive importance. In the four years since 1932 there has been a very satisfactory recovery in the price of cotton. Just how credit for that recovery should be apportioned between the government's farm program and the improvement that has taken place in business conditions generally is hanl.lp, estimate. Neither would have been fully, .effective with- (tjul the other. Btifit'is»"si i gniiicant to v )\pte that recovery of expor't'-trhtlc has iila^e^ virtually no part at nil'in the achievement of the greatly improved situation which American cot- ion producers now enjoy. ^ Vi Cotton producers arc' o'voOyihg reln- ,tivc prosperity today because of artificially _ restricted production and in- creastd domestic demand." They have a good market, for a limited quantity.,: of cotton. ' But'despite a great increase in world consumption of cotton, American producers have made no progress toward regaining the great export market which once was theirs. And without it they must continue to restrict production if tltCy \wotiltl have prices maintained at a profitable level. - i There is no sound basis-for the /"argument that pr6cUictioii(fifcitr|tiori[i^ the cause of our losing our' foreign mar-> -, kets.' They were lost for an entirely different reason and their loss made and continues to make such limitation essential. Of course \ve could greatly increase our sales abroad, in terms of bales, if we were-willing to permit the price to slide back down. But it is dollars that AVG are interested in. And the volume of our exports in tennis' of dollars is not coming back materially until we make it possible for foreign customers to obtain dollars with which to' buy our cotton. In the -long run that means that so long as we maintain a teriff policy which makes it difficult for foreign countries to exchange their goods for our dollars, just so long will they find it difficult to obtain dollars with which to pay for our cotton. The reaKneed of the American cotton producer is for a tariff policy that would open the markets of the world to his product. Unless and until he gets that he will be courting disaster if he fails to keep his production within the limits which domestic and remaining foreign markets can absorb at a fair price. , Cupid's Handicap Frequently there are pleas for universal enactment of legislation requiring pre-marital physical examinations. Somehow, the movement hasn't made much headway, though the idea seems feasible. , It is wonderqd, however, why some group doesn't plug for .another type of test; one that would determine beforehand just what the prospective bride or groom docs in the way of snoring. The thought arises in connection with a Chicago alienation of affections case. Because he snored rather ostentatiously, a man claims, his wife made hihi sleep in an attic room for three years. Ifis wife is suing, the "other woman," to whom, she maintains, her husband turned his affections. " Now all this might have been avoided had the-plaintiff known, before her marriage, that her fiance was a nocturnal basso. When she took him "for belter or for worse," she had not known that the "worse" might include lying awake, trying to ignore a sound that s suggested a sawmill at the height of a lumber boom. So that a bride or groom can learn beforehand that her mate-to-bo - has sonorous leet of clay, to mix a metaphor, there otighta be a law!

But it was not Ciznik who had fired. His revolver clattered to the floor, find he stood there clutching his right wrist and rocking with- the sudden pain. Suddenly the room was filled wilh men, all struggling around Cir.nik and Ling. A young coast guard officer shoved through the mob. "Take them aboard." he ordered, and panic toward the two women. "Are you all right?" "Y-yes," said Martha weakly. "I'm Lieutenant Howison. We didn't know you .^irls were aboard here or we wouldn't have got so rough out there." Quickly he unloosened the vopx; which Ling had hound them. "We'll take caro of you. There's a c;cctor aboard." Howison's ;ncn made fast work ol sending Ciznik and the Oriental along the passageway. With the officer between them, Martha and Betty followed, both glad for his firm assistance. i On deck the confusion had subsided. Ciznik's men were meekly transferring to the coast guard. An officer and crew were making ready to take over the smuggling ship. Suddenly Martha slopped dead siill, her face growing paler WORD than before. "What's wrong?" Howison asked. She rubbed a trembling hand over her damp forehead. "N-n- nothing. I'm all rigln now." She had seen Gerry Neal, im- USR:D TO DESCRJBE: CIF.CL_ES OF LiGi-nr SURROUNDING- LUMIfMOUS BODIES.

His presence among Ciznik's men was not what had struck her motionless. But rather it was the hurting thought that not once had he tried to help her, oven make her more comfortable, Not once had he owned the courage to face her at last, and admit the truth. Suddenly she felt herself leaning too heavily against the young officer. "I—I |hir<k I'm going to faint . . . ." » « * EMNG better now, Mart?" It was Betty, sitting on the edge of her berth. Martha saw the port hole above her and sprang from the pillow. "Betty! Betty, we're not back on that—•" "No . . ." Betty pushed her gently back. "We're on Uncle Sammy's ship this time, heading for Seattle. And friend Ciznik and his playboys are in the brig, or. so Lieutenant Howison says," Betty grinned infectiously. "He's nice, isn't he?" "I—I was too scared to notice." "Well," • Betty told her, "you should have stayed on your feet and you'd have had time to notice!' 'How long have I hc<;n here?'

Howison shrugged. "II they'd ihol too soon they wouldn't have jcen able to "clean up the whole mess. This was a big thing, you mow. There were more than 200 customs men all over the country icsirc in on it, and several scoro JOracr patrol agents were transferred lo Ihc coast to help trap the opium smuggling rings that'' Ciznik had built up. Then the coast guard came into the picture. This boat was sent around from the east coast to replace a slower cutter. We didn't even know why ourselves until now." t t * " VOU should see the opium Ciz" nik had aboard!" Betty exclaimed. Martha nodded. "I did sec some of it. Why is it put into cans filled with flour?" That's to keep it dry," Howison told her. "You see, the opium smuggling liners from the Orient toss the stuff overboard in sacko lied with cork floats. At the top of the sack is a flashlight sealed i bottle. Then the faster, smaller boats, like Cizuik's, come along the steamer lanes and pick the stuff up. They transfer it to shore where Ciznik planned to transport it all over the country." Martha looked at Betty. "If ever we get to the old home town again we'll never leave, will we?" "Don't say that," Howison went on quickly. "Miss Haynes has promised to come lo Seattle again next summer, after I've done Alaska duty . . . Anyhow, you can't leave the coast right away.
