Cottons Salvation Tin 1 cotton shippers arq Ijiivk ;it> Washington, waging war upon Hit; cut- ton control.pvogi'iiin. Tlio duparlniuiil of agriculture is busy answering their attacks. From this distance! it is hard to see where arguments of cither .sitle throw much li^'ht on the problem. George Morris, whom tlie Commercial Appeal sent to Washington' to give the folks at home the low-down on events there, devoted a column or so Saturday to reporting the contention of the shippers lhat curtailment of American production ami pugging of the American price have had an adverse eli'ect upon American cotton exports. It is true and important., but so obvious (hut nobody but a department of agriculture cotton expert would contend otherwise. It most certainly does not follow, however, (hat (he Hiing to do is lo lift- the lid on American production 01 even to end Much price pegging us is nuotveii in the present i2-ccnt. loan. If the price of restoration of America's old place in the world cotton trade i-s -sale of American cotton for less mcnej than it takes to give American producers a decent living we had bcttei forget- about foreign markets'. If (he shippers, and the producers, and Ihe department of agriculture experts, would think the problem, through —at, some of .them have—they would recognize that salvation for the American cotton industry anjt for the millions liopcmient upon it for livelihood is to be fuund neither in the present piognuh nor in a return lo what we had before it was inaugurated. 1'ro- tlutttion control alul price-lixing arc otiangling the cotton export industry ami choking oil' the outlet for halt of our- normal production. But control and price-fixing were necessary to save the'cotton producer from ruin. What can be done about it? Just one thing. Tear down the larill' bar- nei;, (hat on the one hand add substantially to the American fanner's pioduclion costs and on' the other hand dc e tioy Hie buying power uf his foreign customers. That is (he program on which all who have an interest in the American cotton industry should unite, instead of quarreling among themselves. If it. can bo accomplished there will be prosiwrity for cotton producer ami cotton shipper. If it can- OUTOURWAY~~ ~~ not be accomplished we might as well resign ourselves to a gradual reduction of our cotton production to lit domestic requirements. Ed Gump Speaks Whatever otheij faults and weaknesses he may possess,' Kd Crump, political boss of Memphis and Shelby county, cannot be accused of lacking political sense. His attacks upon the proposed Tennessee sales tax, published yesterday, may have behind il .somclhiiu/ more than affection for the dear people. We cannot speak for Mr. Crump's motives. We are certain, however, lhat ho spoke the sentiments of a largo majority of iho people of Memphis and Twi- nosHCi!. Where is a leader lo speak similarly for the people of Arkansas, which is also threatciwd with » .sales lax? iNol long ago tin: voters of llii.'i state gave an overwhelming majority lo a constitutional amendment which (hey were lold would curb the power of llic legislature to burden them with additional taxes. Now they learn thai .they are protected against increased rates on existing taxes but not againsl new taxes. But members of Hie general assembly will be wise lo recognize that the vote on that constitutional amendment, while technically creating no burner to Ihe levying of « sales tax, was nevertheless an expression of popular protest againsl additional taxation of any kind.
