TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 1048 Support Urged For Trade Pacts Arkansas Senator Asks Support for Gearhart Measure •WASHINGTON, D. C.. June 1— 8*n. J. w. rulbright today Issued a statement culling attention lo the. Jmporlance of the reciprocal trade 1 agreements program In (he people of Arkansas. He said that the "continued effectiveness of Ihe prog rim nitRnft dollars and cents to Arknu- sai people." Tlie staietnent was prompted by) the fact that the House of Representatives, on Wednesday, passed the Gearhart bill for extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreement. 1 ;, Act for one year, but with changes' in procedure which secretary of State Marshall has said will make! the progiam wiworkxble. Thursday, 1 Senator MiUikin, chairman of tlie' Senate Finance Committee tin-i nounced that two days of hearings will be held on the hill this week. Pulbright said thai the program was the "key.stone of our foreign economic policy." that "its hnuort- »nce was increased by the Marshall | Plan :tnri to hamper the program; now means a step in the direction of' economic Isolationism." Pulbright said that Slate Department figures show 52 per cent of U. S. rice production was reported in the marketing year 1941. For a similar period 42 per cent of U. S. cotton production was exported. Arkansas is among the leading states In production of rice and col- ton, and a proportionate share of the exported commodities were produced in Arkansas. Furthermore, regardless of whether or not the products produced in Arkansas enr tered foreign trade, the prices Arkansas producers received were directly improved by the fact that similar products were simultaneously belr, F exported from the United States In considerable amounts and. consequently, were not put on the domestic market In competition j with Arkansas products, as would hav« happened if the entire supply had to be consumed within the United States. Say» F>cU Have Value Fulbright »aid the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trades con- eluded last October at Geneva, Switzerland, was concrete proof of the value of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act. under which it was > negotiated. He snld the Stale De-j partment had estimated that the' 23 participating countries occoimted I for three-quarters of the International trade of the world, and the- product* subject to the agreement constituted half of the total world ' imports. i The Slate Department has said' that prior to the Geneva Agreement reciprocal trade agreements had reunited In ten countries granting concessions for lice and rice flour,! while seven countries had given' concessions on cotton, some of the additional concessions obtained under the Geneva Agreement were lowering ot rates fijr'ffce Iftiported into Canada, the united Kingdom. France and Czechoslovakia, and tor cotton in Australia. Prance andj Cuba. The general provisions of the j Geneva agreement not only resulted i in additional favorable treatment if Arkanaas products, but it safeguarded and made effective prior tarifT concessions, according to Fulbrighc.
