TUWDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1985 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRU Cotton Surplus Playing Role In Top World Affairs By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (APJ — Cotton farmers voting today on marketing quotas for next year's crop are entangled in world problems as well as the domestic ones. The cotton surplus problem has DAK WINNER — Jennie Wren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Hudson Wren of Wilson, lias been named Good Citizenship Girl of Wilson High School by the Wilson DAB chapter. part in such things as the United States and Russia jockeying for the friendship of Egypt. It is involved in the American textile mills' quarrel with the Japanese textile industry. It will be.watched by tl|e millhancls in Manchester, England. In this country there are sectional disputes as well. The interests of the Southeastern cotton grower with a small farm aren't the same ns those of the big-acreage farmer in the irrigated Southwest. There are also the basic disputes between the textile mill operators who think the price of cotton is held artificially high and the cotton farmer who fears any change that might pull the rug out from under his income. 25 Million Bales The United States now has a cotton supply on hand of more than 25 million bales. Domestic mills use about nine million bales a year. Of the remaining 16 million bales, some 1% million may move overseas through various foreign nid programs, and some 2U to 3 million more may be exported through regular trade channels. That will leave the United States holding some 13 to 14 million bales of unsold cotton in addition to whatever the cotton farmers grow in the coming season, as set by today's voting on limitation of acreage to be planted this spring. More could move into world trade except for the international and domestic disputes involved. The huge cotton surplus plays a big role in the United States' hesitancy to fight it out with Soviet Russia for Egypt's favor. Egypt has. its heart set on building the high Aswan Darm, which would irrigate many acres of land that could produce long-staple cotton— in competition in particular with the fast-growing Fima cotton output of GUI' own Southwest, as well as with every American cotton farmer over whose head a world cotton surplus hangs. Offered Help The Russians have offered to help build Egypt's dam. Washington doubts if the Soviets could fulfill their promise, but it fears the propaganda eifect on the Arab world of the offer itself. Yet to jump in and furnish the money o u r s e 1 • e s would be working against the interests of our own cotton farmers. Uncle Sam could dump part of his surplus cotton on the world market at lower-than-support prices. But that wouid bring howls „ : not only from other cotton-pro- j the expense of American mills ducing countries, but also from buying at a higher price. His Accent Sounded Phony CHARLESTON, W. Va. Wj—Geoffrey Hobday, conductor of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, was making his dramatic debut in a community players production ot "Dial M for Murder." Hobday's wife and daughter anxious to get the audience reaction at intermission time, heard one woman say: "The play is going along fine, but that fellow who plays Captain Le- sgate has the phoniest English accent I ever heard." Hobday was born in Birmingham. England, and has been in America only about three years.
